Cinnamon-Spice Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Wolfgang Puck

Give me a handful of good oatmeal cookies any day. I like to use quick-cooking oats for the recipe that follows; but you could substitute old-fashioned rolled oats if you'd prefer coarser, chewier cookies. Of course, my recipe includes just about everything I like to add to a bowl of oatmeal in the morning: butter, sweet spices, brown sugar, raisins and walnuts. If you like, try replacing the raisins with dried cranberries or dried cherries. In fact, you might want to hide this article from the children, or they'll demand cookies for breakfast!

Pasta with Broccoli Raab, Goat Cheese, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Toasted Pine Nuts

Wolfgang Puck

When food lovers I know talk to me about their desire to eat more healthily during the winter months, one thing I hear them say most often is that they want to try to cook more vegetarian main courses.

Macadamia Nut Brittle

Some of the most thoughtful gifts I know are those from the kitchen. Especially during the holidays, treats that you make yourself and wrap simply but beautifully tell their recipients that you’ve made an effort to share something special.

Easy Free-Form Plum Tart

Wolfgang Puck

Though my recipe describes the tart as more or less circular, the shape is not even important: Everything will look beautiful and taste delicious whether your tart is oval, square, rectangular, or resembling an amoebae. Cut it into wedges, top with vanilla ice cream if you like, and dessert is ready. Now that's what I call plum perfect!

Green Beans
Twice-Fried Green Beans with Double-Blanched Garlic

Wolfgang Puck
As long as you use a deep-frying thermometer to ensure the oil is hot enough, I learned, there’s nothing greasy about the results. The beans have a fairly nonabsorbent surface, unlike the batters or breadcrumbs coating of most deep-fried foods.

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Wolfgang Puck

My Flourless Chocolate Cake, so dense and rich that it's almost like a sublime fudge, is an excellent choice not only because it's so easy to make well in advance but also because it offers such decadent pleasure for lovers of chocolate.

Warm Chocolate Cupcakes with Molten Centers

warm chocolate brownies with molten centersWolfgang Puck

At home, baking these is one of the easiest and tastiest ways I know to make a great impression on your dinner guests. Most recipes, including my own, call for just a few ingredients — chocolate, butter, sugar, eggs, and a dash of flour. You combine them very quickly. And the cakes don’t take long to bake — barely more than 10 minutes.

From start to finish, you'll have a wonderful home-cooked dinner on the table in about an hour. And you don't even have to tell anyone you made it with the help of the supermarket's rotisserie!

Viennese-Style Fried Chicken

Wolfgang Puck

That's it: perfect fried chicken. I love to fry fresh parsley or lovage leaves at the last minute for a garnish. Then, I serve the chicken with mashed potatoes and a romaine lettuce salad. I always make extra to enjoy cold the next day, a perfect summer meal with coleslaw or potato salad. Please try my recipe, and rediscover how wonderful spring chicken can be!

Chicken Pad Thai

Serve my Pad Thai as part of a pan-Asian meal or on its own, as a simple light meal for two. Instead of the chicken I call for, use shelled and deveined fresh shrimp or strips of pork, beef or turkey. Or leave out any kind of meat and enjoy Pad Thai as a side dish with a grilled or roasted main course, Asian or Western. Click here for Wolfgang Puck's full introduction.

In winter, when you want to eat something that warms, fills, and satisfies you, a stuffed baked potato can be more welcome than the finest caviar. It makes a perfect companion to grilled or broiled steak or other meat, poultry, or seafood.

Tortilla Soup

When you don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen, yet you want something warming for a cold winter evening, soup is the perfect dish to make. Hands-on work usually takes just a few minutes, and then you leave everything to simmer slowly on the stove. The result is something hot, satisfying, and delicious. And, if you include some sort of meat or poultry along with starchy ingredients like potatoes, noodles, rice, or even bread, you have that ideal of easy, casual cooking: a meal in a bowl.

Wild Mushroom Risotto

Wolfgang Puck

Northern Italy's most famous category of dishes is risotto. Based on short, plump grains of rice with lots of surface starch that dissolves in the cooking liquid to form a rich-tasting, creamy sauce, risotto may be served as an appetizer; as a satisfying main course for a casual meal; or as a side dish to soak up the sauces of stews or braises, including the classic Milanese braised veal shanks known as osso buco. Make risotto a few times and you'll probably feel as Italian as I do!

Serve this up at a wintry weekend lunch or dinner, and there's no chance your guests will gaze wistfully out the window. Their attention will be riveted right on the dining table, where it belongs.

Pineapple Macadamia Nut Upside-Down Cake

Wolfgang Puck

Enjoy pineapple raw on its own, in fruit salads, or as an ingredient in tropical-style main-course salads. It's also delicious cooked, a form in which you'll now often find it on the menu of my restaurant Spago in Maui, including the following version of a classic pineapple upside-down cake. Add scoops of coconut ice cream, if you like, for a true, decadent taste of the tropics.

Dry-Rub Marinated Rib-Eye Steaks With Grilled Onions And Sweet-And-Spicy Dipping Sauce

Wolfgang Puck

However you cook your rib-eyes, let them rest for 10 minutes on a foil-covered platter to give the bubbling-hot juices time to settle back evenly into the meat. Then transfer them to serving plates and sit back to watch your guests, whatever their gender, enjoy a truly manly main course.

Chinois Chicken Salad

Wolfgang Puck

One of my favorite true convenience foods now widely available in markets is the cooked, ready-to-eat rotisserie chicken. Rubbing a whole chicken with seasonings and then cooking it on a slowly turning spit is an excellent way to produce juicy, flavorful meat.

My Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf

 bacon-wrapped meatloafWolfgang Puck

When I first set out to make meat loaf here in America, I knew mine had to be interesting. For great, complex flavor, I started with equal parts ground beef, pork, and veal, rather than just beef alone. But you should feel free to use just beef, or beef and pork, if you like.
