Potato pancakes

Potato Pancakes

Fried starch - what's not to like? Best served with butter on top and a side of kielbasa.

Pumpkin cream cheese muffins

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

If you don't put frosting on it, it's considered a muffin and not a cupcake. Which makes it an acceptable breakfast food.

Red Beans and Rice

Red Beans and Rice

This takes awhile to make, but it make a huge quantity of tasty, flavourful food.

Sausage spinach loaf

Sausage Spinach Loaf

This was the only way my parents ever got me to eat spinach as a kid. I think it's still the only way I eat spinach: surrounded by sausage and smothered in cheese.

Scones

Scones

I've heard tell that if a British person shouts at the sky for scones, they will fall like manna from the heavens. I'm not sure what the secret is, because I've only seen rain falling from the sky in Britain. Lots and lots of rain.

Soft pretzels

Soft Pretzels

I miss being able to get fresh baked pretzels at any bakery on any block in Germany. This is my inadequate and tedious substitute.

Spaghetti and meatballs

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Together with garlic bread and steamed broccoli, this is one of my favorite meal-prepping recipes. My labmates have seen me eat a lot of this.

Sugar cookies

Sugar Cookies

Even in cookies, the secret is cheese -- in this case, cream cheese. It keeps the cookies moist and prevents blandness. Also butter. Always butter.

Swiss onion soup

Swiss Onion Soup

It's French onion soup, but with Swiss cheese. See? Cheese makes everything better.

Tortilla chips

Tortilla Chips

If I don't keep a bag of tortilla chips around and have to make my own every time, I should theoretically eat less of them. I don't think it's working.
