Prepare a Cheesecakedilla for a Quick Dessert

Cheesecakedilla recipe

They say “necessity is the mother of invention,” and after coming up with this absurdly simple Cheesecake/Quesadilla mashup, I have to say I agree. It started innocently enough with a hankering for a creamy dessert. Normally this wouldn’t be a huge issue in my home as my fridge, freezer and pantry are almost always stocked with the makings of any number of desserts.

When I was a kid, my go-to afternoon snack was a quesadilla or a pot of instant mac-n-cheese. I still love those two things; they’ll always have a special place in my heart. But now that I’m a grown-up, I try and make my snacks and quick meals a bit healthier. This bowl of kimchi fried rice goodness is in heavy rotation. It utilizes ingredients I always seem to have on hand. Kimchi has become a fridge staple in the last year and I love to add it to lots of things, or even eat it all on its own.

Prepare Ochazuke for a Traditional Japanese Breakfast

Ochazuke (Japanese Tea Rice) recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Ochazuke (お茶漬け) literally means “soaked in tea” and is a traditional Japanese breakfast food that’s somewhere between a soup and a porridge. Unlike most porridge the rice isn’t cooked in a liquid. Instead, it’s heated by pouring boiling water over it and then draining off the starchy water to ensure the tea stays clear when it’s added.

I’m on this really annoying healthy-eating bit. While it’s somewhat dreadful, I do feel fantastic. There are a few meals in the week when I’m allowed to splurge and oh did I ever. I made this chocolate stout cake, brewed some coffee and ate it. It was blissful, I tell you! Go without sugar for a week and a half and that first bite is just wonderful.

Make a Sheet of Simple Peanut Brittle

Peanut Brittle recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

While I love peanut brittle, most recipes include baking soda, which really ruins it for me. In theory, it’s a good idea, the baking soda adds some air to the caramelized sugar, making the sheets of candy more brittle, but it also introduces a minerally, metallic taste that’s off putting to say the least.

Prepare a Soothing Bowl of Spare Rib Noodle Soup

Spare Rib Noodle Soup recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I often joke that if I were stranded on a desert island and could only eat one type of food for the rest of my life, it would be noodle soup. It’s the perfect one-bowl meal with protein, vegetables and noodles in a savory broth that soothes the soul. More importantly, with variations that run the gamut from light chicken pho to unctuous tonkotsu ramen, it’s a food with enough diversity that the hypothetical island-dweller version of me in this improbable scenario would never get bored.

I recently had pistachio­-studded halva at a restaurant and loved it. I had it at a Turkish restaurant but a lot of countries across the Middle East, Asia and North Africa eat it. And there are countless versions of it depending on the country. The version I had was nutty and sweet and had such a unique flavor. While the version I had was solid, almost like a piece of soft, crumbly chocolate, I had visions of the flavor smothered on a piece of toast. I came home and tried it spread form: a little tahini, honey and salt. SO GOOD! I ended up taking it a step further by stirring in some good­ quality cocoa powder.
