Bell Pepper SoupThis delightful soup recipe is a garden medley of bell peppers, garlic, onions, and savory herbs & spices. When it is pureed with mascarpone cheese and a splash of white wine, the result is an upscale dish with velvety texture and extraordinary taste.
Simple Chicken PaprikashThis spicy, rustic delight is the national dish of Hungary! It has global appeal with tender chicken bites covered in a savory, paprika-rich sauce flavored with sauted onion & bacon. The dish gets a comforting creaminess from a generous portion of sour cream. Enjoy paprikash over plump egg noodles!
Buttery Lemon Parsley NoodlesMy basic noodle recipe infuses plump egg noodles with butter, tangy lemon and parsley. Top them with a hearty sauce or serve them as a tasty side dish. They are easy to make and are appealing to even the pickiest little eaters.
Sour Cherry SoupFor Jewish people in Hungary, early summer is sour cherry season. Since it coincides with Shavuot, they created a flavorful sour cherry soup that is thickened with sour cream. Cinnamon and lemon zest provide a little zing to the flavor profile. The fruit and its juices give the soup a gorgeous pinkish-purple color. It is perfect for an appetizer or dessert.
