It's lame, but I have to say pizza.
Make your own pizza
My mom's beef stew
Caprese, but with peaches instead of tomatoes.
Skirt steak. I always expect it will end up with the consistency of rubber.
Bibeleskaes is the only food I know from my heritage, really. And I only _just now_ learned how to spell it.
Spearmint chocolate chip.
My kosher experience consists almost exclusively in grocery clearance sales after holidays.
Mac & cheese
Pain au chocolat
Laab in a little shop on Silom road.
Apple pie, I guess? I think they're more difficult than others to make; I've had (and made!) some gluey and/or undercooked apple pies that weren't so good.
This is kind of a weird answer, but I've got to say my dad's recipe for tossed salad. It's easy and flexible enough to adjust to any meal.
Gumbo if that counts. If not, I'll say boiled peanuts?

I can't say that I've had a lot of Spanish food, but I do remember really liking Spanish chorizo when I tried it.
We're pantry hoarders, so just about everything nonperishable that we might use is in there. If I have to say one thing, I'll say flour; there are about five kinds of it in there.
I guess the biggest creative leap for me was pumpernickel chocolate chip cookies.
Roasted at low heat for a few hours, then finished in a hot frying pan.
