Mother’s Day Clafoutis

Dede Wilson

Mother’s Day Clafoutis

In some families, the kids and significant others are just as adept as Mom in the kitchen, but I wanted to develop a recipe that was fairly foolproof for whomever was going to (wo)man the stove. Oven-baked pancakes came to mind, but they often fall flat. Then it occurred to me that they have similarities with clafoutis, the classic French dessert that typically features mid-summer cherries. Both are rather custardy in their pastry-ness and who doesn’t like the idea of dessert for breakfast? They both basically involve whipping up an easy pancake or crepe-like batter, pouring it into a heat-proof pan and then letting the oven do the work. Why stand over a hot stove cooking slice after slice of French toast? In keeping with a spring theme, I present you with a Lemon Blueberry Clafoutis.

The Perfect Frittata

Maura McEvoy

The Perfect Frittata

I like to prepare a frittata the same way I do an omelette, but instead of rolling the cooked eggs onto a plate, I serve the frittata open-face, as with the zucchini and mozzarella frittata here. One trick is to flash the pan into the oven for just a few minutes to heat the cheese. But the eggs shouldn’t be cooked any longer than with an omelette. — John Besh
