Grilled Plantains

Once your grill is fired up, these are dead simple to make, and you can use plaintains of varying ripeness with good results. The riper, yellow and black plantains will be sweeter and more creamy, and green ones will yield a milder taste with a starchy, dry texture.

Ambrosia (Citrus Salad with Coconut)

What a perfect winter dessert! Seasonal citrus pairs up with pineapple and shredded coconut in a simple, not too sweet fruit salad. Note that it only takes a few minutes to prepare, but it's best when allowed to sit for a couple of hours to let the flavors develop.

Winter Pesto

We think of pesto as a summertime food, but this easy version uses kale with some parsley to give you fresh pesto, even when there's no basil in sight!

Grapefruit Curd

Initially reducing the grapefruit juice by half will concentrate its flavor and give the curd's citrus taste more of a punch, as well as a deeper flavor.
