Vlaflip from scratch: Dutch dessert with vanilla custard, fruit sauce, and yogurtLearn to make this quintessential Dutch dessert called "vlaflip." We didn't eat this every night as dessert.

The three components go so well together: rich, velvety vanilla custard, sweet and fruity syrup, with the tangy yogurt on top!

Jachtschotel: Centuries-Old Dutch Casserole RecipeRelive the ages-old tradition of "Jachtschotel," a centuries-old Dutch dish. It is an amazing casserole with onions, apples, and mashed potatoes. The name translates to "Hunter's casserole," and was originally made with the tough cuts of meats of whatever game they hunted. It was cooked for a few hours with onions and other vegetables and then baked in a casserole with added apples and mashed potatoes. I have updated the recipe to use beef short ribs rather than pheasant or wild boar (though feel free to use them if you like!)
