Do you have a couple of hours to prepare a special dish? And a couple of hours to find and prepare all 40 ingredients? Do you like the small duck? But don’t want the banal taste? Do you adore delicacies and try something new, so later to tell about this your friends? Well, okay, that’s enough stupid questions. The softness of marinated duck, rich flavor of spices, cherries’ brightness, singularity mix with black pudding and coffee is for the savvy foodies.

Be ready for the fact that after this dish you’ll have to eat a couple of burgers, a bowl of salad and a plate of pasta. Otherwise you will be hungry, though very happy. Mentally and physically.

It’s hard to imagine Ukrainian life without vareniki (or pierogi – the polish name). Some foreigners don’t understand why everybody in Ukraine are so obsessed with vareniki, cause according to them “they are just the dumpling-like pastry of unleavened dough with different stuffing”. But for Ukrainians vareniki are magic dish, I would say that they represent the Ukrainian soul – seemed to be simple outside but very rich and deep inside.

As ordered on The Flash: Pepperoni, olives, and jalapeños. From Pizza Time in Wethersfield, CT.

This was a super pizza. Barry has good taste. I wish I could have eaten three large in a sitting too, but I can only handle half a small at a time.

Teriyaki chicken with pineapple, rice, eggroll, hot sauce, and fortune cookie
I've said that if I could find a pizza place that had both pastrami and sun-dried tomatoes for toppings, I'd be in Heaven. It turns out I had access to Heaven all along, if I'd only asked. Pizza Time in Hartford, CT has pastrami in its sandwiches, but not listed as a topping. I asked if they could put it on a pizza and they said no problem.

Having found Heaven, I thought, why not go for Nirvana and have all my most favorite toppings? I ordered pastrami, sun-dried tomatoes, bacon, pineapple, and jalapenos. Nirvana was achieved. It was a marvelous pizza.

I'm glad I abandoned my idea to create an EBOLA pizza when I couldn't find a topping starting with L.

Pumpkinnnn. Still on the pumpkin train.

This Drunken Pumpkin Gingerbread Snack Cake whips up quickly, but then sits overnight to let the flavors meld. It's a great holiday or company cake -- or a great Monday cake, let's be real. If you're not a huge fan of rum, feel free to substitute bourbon or whatever you enjoy -- or leave out the alcohol altogether.

Sweet & sour chicken with vegetable lo mein
Made in Turkey by Usas. Purchased at Tangiers in Hartford, CT.

Even though it's blueberry flavored, the color is more of a sea green. The taste is like floral blueberry. I didn't know blueberry could be floral, but that happens with Turkish delight.

Oh, you know. Just one of the best desserts I’ve ever tasted. NO BIG DEAL. These are so worth the time and energy to get them on your table. I highly recommend these for any special occasion, including Wednesday.

I took my pumpkin yeast dough and filled it with an insane mixture of butter, cinnamon, sugar, maple candied pecans, and magical unicorn dust. Well, that’s what it tastes like, anyway. Then I topped the rolls with this delectable pumpkin spice cream cheese icing. The result is a special fall dessert that would be perfect on a holiday table (but I'll eat it on any ol' table, thanks.)

Mister Garibaldi's Suicide Pizza
As ordered by Babylon 5 security chief Michael Garibaldi: Pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes. The sun-dried tomatoes make the pizza, and are a new must-have topping. I had trouble finding a place that has them, though. Some day I'll find a place that has both sun-dried tomatoes and pastrami, and I'll be in heaven.

These Pumpkin Cheesecake Cinnamon Rolls are all gussied up for fall. They start with a pumpkin yeast dough that gets filled with a thick cheesecake mixture before being rolled up, baked, glazed, and topped with Maple Candied Pecans, because why not? Enjoy!

These pecans are salty and sweet and scream fall. You probably have everything you need to make these in your pantry right now. Feel free to double this recipe, but be sure to use 2 baking sheets instead of one so you can spread out the nuts.

Spicy pork carnitas
"diced tomatoes, onions, provolone, and fresh cilantro". They are spicy and messy. Keep plenty of napkins handy. Especially if you've been been walking around all day in the summer because your eyes will be burning from sweat and spice.
