Grandma Reedy’s Spinach
This is a staple at all family gatherings since I was in diapers so long ago. Everyone knows it but no one has ever written it down, UNTIL NOW! Great Grandma Reedy gets the credit. When doing some research on German recipes for our German friend, I found that German Creamed Spinach is very similar, but there is no cream in this recipe.

Raspberry Tart Puffs
There is nothing better than homemade pastries. These Raspberry Tart Puffs are super easy and fun to make. A beautiful crispy crust outside and warm, soft inside wrapped around the sweet and tart raspberry filling melts in your mouth. Softened vanilla ice cream is the perfect accompaniment.

Pommes Anna
A few simple tricks helped us achieve the best pommes Anna recipe, a crisp, deep brown potato cake with a glassine crust and soft, creamy layers within. A nonstick ovenproof skillet ensured easy release every time. We saved time and energy by slicing the potatoes with the fine slicing disk on a food processor. Tossing the sliced potatoes with melted whole butter slowed down discoloration. And we arranged the potatoes for our pommes Anna recipe in a nonstick ovenproof skillet as it heated on the stovetop to accelerate cooking.
