A list of all the recipes Ralph Knauth has tested.

A wire rack on a piece of parchment, with 3 croquettes madame muffins sitting on top.

Croque Madame Muffins

A nifty little ooh- and aah-inducing riff on the classic croque madame that’s perfect to assemble ahead of time for big batch brunches.

A white casserole dish partially filled with cheese enchiladas, garnished with cilantro, cheese, and crema.

Cheese Enchiladas

Got chile sauce? Corn tortillas? Cheese? Sour Cream? Limes? Fantastic. Then you’ve got the makings for some of the easiest enchiladas ever.

A bowl of tabbouleh with a wooden spoon resting inside.

Easy Tabbouleh

Made with lots of herbs and only a bit of bulgur, this tabbouleh is dominated in a good way by parsley, mint, tomatoes, and onions.

A white baking dish filled with easy rhubarb crisp and a spoon resting in the center.

Easy Rhubarb Crisp

An obscenely easy, sweetly tart rhubarb crisp that you simply must experience at least once. (Although we doubt you’ll be able to stop at just once.)

A silver platter filled with asparagus tempura with some pieces of asparagus and a glass of beer on a wooden table.

Asparagus Tempura

Easy and shatteringly crisp and light and perfect. That’s what folks are saying about this delicate beer-battered asparagus tempura.

White bowl of fresh peas with mint

Fresh Peas with Mint

Is there anything that screams spring more than lightly buttered peas with a wee bit of mint on top? We think not.

Two white bowls filled with red posole with pieces of tortilla and lime wedges on the side.

Red Posole ~ Pozole Rojo

In Nahuatl, pozole means “make a big batch of this on the weekend and reheat during the week after soccer practice.” (Not really.)

An unsliced loaf of brown soda bread with a knife resting beside it

Brown Soda Bread

We guarantee you’re going to feel Irish when you sit down and savor a slice of this brown soda bread. Consider it a borrowed Irish birthright.

A broccoli rabe pizza cut into squares on a grey background.

Broccoli Rabe Pizza

We’re not saying broccoli rabe pizza is going to replace pepperoni. We’re merely suggesting it may, under certain circumstances, be an awesomely viable alternative.
