Cheesy Banana Ham Casserole Recipe: 30-Minute Meal

Easter is coming, and this Cheesy Banana Ham Casserole recipe is something you might want to take a look at. We're not saying this would substitute for a proper Easter lamb dinner or even an Easter dinner with a real baked ham. What we are saying is: Maybe you want a simple, easy casserole, not the whole Easter dinner thing, that doesn't include all the fixings.

Strawberry Cream Puffs

Food & Wine

Ed Jiloca was working as a line cook when his boss, Cathal Armstrong (an F&W Best New Chef 2006), promoted him to pastry chef at Restaurant Eve in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.

One Family's Easter Tradition: Classic Ricotta Cheesecake

During my entire life, Easter has meant that it's time for one of my very favorite food traditions of the year: ricotta pie. What my family calls "ricotta pie" is, in reality, ricotta cheesecake to everyone else. This pie is an integral part of our Easter celebration -- we make it the day before, keep it in the fridge, then eat it for breakfast with hard-cooked eggs, fruit salad, and other delights that change each year.

Semolina Pancakes

Food & Wine

Every morning, cafes in Marrakech serve these crepes, called begrhir, drizzled with honey or spread with apricot jam. Cooking the crepes on only one side leaves a lacy network of tiny holes, perfect for catching the sweet toppings; the fine semolina provides a lovely sandy texture. Paula Wolfert adapted this recipe from one in the book La Patisserie Marocaine by Rachida Amhaouche.
