Winter Favorites 2009

Winter Favorites 2009

A few favorite things from winter 2009, including highlight from a trip to the annual Fancy Food show.

Itsy Bitsy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Itsy Bitsy Chocolate Chip Cookies

The perfect bite-sized chocolate chip cookie. Tiny, thin, golden, crisp, a bit nutty with plenty of shaved chocolate.

Cashew Curry

Cashew Curry

A simple, last-minute curry recipe - curry powder in coconut milk, deeply toasted cashew nuts, a handful of green beans, two handfuls of tiny cauliflower florets, and a bit of tofu for good measure.

Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl

Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl

A perfect breakfast - thin slices of sautéed pears, ruby-hued cranberries, and plump, golden wheat berries are sweetened with generous dollops of maple-sweetened yogurt and finished with plenty of toasted pecans and a sprinkling of dried persimmons, ginger, and dates.

Triple Ginger Cookies

Triple Ginger Cookies

These are the ginger cookies you want to make. This ginger cookie recipe is made special with three kinds of ginger and a hint of lemon zest. Cracked and sugar-crusted on the outside, dense and moist within.

Giant Chipotle White Beans

Giant Chipotle White Beans

A riff on Laurence Jossel's fantastic NOPA beans - plump, creamy beans baked in a bright, chunky chipotle tomato sauce, topped with crunchy breadcrumbs, plenty of oozy queso fresco, and an emerald drizzle of cilantro pesto.

Wild Seaweed Salad

Wild Seaweed Salad

Toasted wild nori alongside cilantro, tofu, and plenty of wild rice. The dressing for this salad isn't shy - assertive notes of sesame, ginger, cayenne pepper and soy sauce work their way into the wild rice and tofu. Lots of flavor.

Classic Cheese Fondue

Classic Cheese Fondue

A classic cheese fondue recipe. I've included dozens of my favorite things to dunk - don't limit yourself to just bread!

Garlicky Greens

Garlicky Greens

If you love sauteed greens, give this recipe a go. I avoid overcooking, and throw plenty of garlic into the pan. You can use kale, chard, or spinach.

Mushroom Casserole

Mushroom Casserole

A remix of the mushroom casserole I loved as a kid. Brown rice, mushrooms, garlic, onions along side a bit of cottage cheese and sour cream and Parmesan for texture and creaminess.
