Golden, Crispy Gnocchi

Golden, Crispy Gnocchi

My favorite new way to make gnocchi in a flash - no boil. Cook them in a skillet until they are golden and crusted, and in this case serve with summer shell beans and shredded cheese.

Baked Polenta Fries

Baked Polenta Fries

Great party finger food. A thick slab of polenta is sliced into the shape of a french fry and baked off.

Cheesy, Heirloom, Panini Batons

Cheesy, Heirloom, Panini Batons

One-inch wide slabs of toasted, cheesy, heirloom tomato filled deliciousness slathered with a basil-chive ricotta spread.

Animal Crackers

Animal Crackers

Make crispy crackers from wonton wrappers. The great thing about this cracker recipe is the way the wrappers provide a quick and easy blank canvas to experiment with - sweet or savory, spicy or seedy - there are countless directions to explore.

Dukkah

Dukkah

Great for dipping with olive oil, this dukkah recipe is a crumbly nut and spice blend typically associated with Egypt - hazelnuts, cariander seeds, sesame seeds, cumin seeds, black peppercorns, fennel seeds, dried mint leaves, and salt.

Rajasthani Buttermilk Curry

Rajasthani Buttermilk Curry

Rajasthani buttermilk curry recipe from the award-winning cookbook Mangoes & Curry Leaves, by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid.

A Good Soup for the Sick

A Good Soup for the Sick

Turn to this miraculously delicious soup when you are feeling sick - beans, water, garlic, shallots, chiles. Total active prep time was under five minutes, the rest is just waiting and anticipating.

Whipped Chickpea Hummus

Whipped Chickpea Hummus

Actually two different takes on hummus. One with an Italian twist, and one a lovely shade of green from the incorporation of a bit of sauteed spinach.

Thousand Layer Lasagna

Thousand Layer Lasagna

I'll never make lasagna any other way. Impossibly thin layers of feathery-light pasta with just enough sauce and cheese between each layer to keep it moist and flavorful.

Homemade and All-natural Thin Mint Recipe

Homemade and All-natural Thin Mint Recipe

As promised, an all-natural Thin Mint recipe for you. No shortening, no trans-fats from partially hydrogenated vegetable oils - just good old-fashioned butter, cocoa, vanilla, sugar, chocolate, whole grain flour, and peppermint turned into delicious, thin minty goodness.
