This fettuccine recipe was inspired one of the many trips I made to the Testaccio Market while in Rome. Fresh ribbons of pasta with olive oil, porcini mushrooms, garlic, black pepper, and pecorino cheese.
Indonesian red rice salad with boiled eggs and macadamias. Riveting to look at, with a wonderfully complex array of flavors and textures to enjoy.
Tasty, hearty vegetarian lentil burger recipe. Slathered with saffron yogurt and stuffed with avocado, lettuce, and onions.
Simple and delicious, vibrant green spinach and zucchini soup recipe. Light-and-healthy, but still creamy textured and plenty tasty.
Golden, crisped potato crouton recipe. Great in place of bread croutons in soups and salads.
A great way to use nutritious quinoa. This quinoa and grilled zucchini recipe is tossed with a pretty, pale green cilantro-flecked avocado dressing.
A stunning jewel-colored rosewater plum compote. It can make ordinary french toast, waffles, pancakes, and crepes, and vanilla ice cream extra special.
A deliciously vibrant, earthy, and slightly smoky-tasting salsa recipe. Different from salsa fresca, the deep, caramelized flavors of the roasted tomatoes and onions alongside the smokiness of the chipotles make for a richly beautiful and balanced salsa.
A kabob recipe featuring grilled mushrooms, lemons, tofu red onions and a delicious red pepper walnut slather.
A platter of petite, potato pillows coated with glistening flecks of basil pesto. The gnocchi recipe taught to me by Francesca's mother.
