  • Baby Back Ribs

    G.R. Davis

    best ribs you'll ever make with the "grill" as optional at the end. However it does take 2 days prepration, it is soooo worth it.

  • Risengrød (rice porridge)

    Peter Bøving

    A rice porridge served at the beginning of Christmas Eve dinner. It is tradition for an elder to hide an almond in the pot of risengrød before serving. The person who gets the almond wins a marzipan pig! Place a little risengrød in the barn for the Nisse mand (woodland elves). You know the elves are happy (and well-fed) because the bowl will be empty on Christmas morning!

  • Fresh Fig Pie

    Jessie Marie DeBoth

  • Scott’s Second-Place Lowfat Chili

    Scott Keimig

    This recipe makes a thick, reasonably spicy, low fat chili with lots of tomato essence. I think it’s both hearty and healthy. It placed second in the NCI-F 2009 Annual Chili competition.

  • Thai Mango Sticky Sweet Rice Dessert (Khao Niaow Ma Nuang)


    This is pretty easy and good, only hard part is getting the rice to the right consistency (really thick). You have to find the sticky rice at an asian store, there’s one on 40 near where Watsons used to be.
