Slightly bitter walnuts and sweet, fragrant figs make a very tasty and sophisticated ice cream. Break out the ice cream maker!

Fresh Figs with Cashew Cream

This seemingly decadent dessert is something all can enjoy: it's gluten-free, raw, vegan, is only lightly sweetened, and it incredibly delicious! Be sure to start the cashews soaking at least six hours before you'd like to serve it.

Aronia Berry Bread Pudding

This bread pudding is ideal for a brunch or breakfast get-together, and is easy to prepare ahead of time.

Aronia Berry Bread

Tart Aronia berries, also known as chokeberries, are native to North America, and are chock-full of antioxidants.

Delicious when drizzled warm over pancakes, waffles, or oatmeal, this sauce is a gingery, tart change from the usual maple syrup.

Spiced Chicken and Tomato Kebabs

A marinade of yogurt, orange, cumin, and saffron flavor these juicy chicken kebabs. Served with lime wedges and lavash or pita, it's a special but deceptively easy meal.

Tuscan Grilled Zucchini and Yellow Crookneck Squash

Summer squash soaks up the garlic, herbs, and lemon in this marinade like a sponge, and bursts with flavor after a quick turn on the grill. Use the extra marinade (you'll have some leftover) to drizzle over a grain salad, or to grill more vegetables.

Turkish Zucchini Pancakes with Garlic Yogurt

Turkish people know how to cook vegetables like no one else, and these incredible zucchini fritters are no exception. Served with an easy salad of sliced tomatoes drizzled in olive oil, this is a perfect summer meal.

Beer-Braised Pork Shoulder

This recipe is meant to be a guide: you can add different liquids, vegetables, and seasonings - it's a very forgiving recipe. If you'd like to use a slow cooker instead of a Dutch oven, be sure to reduce the liquid so that it doesn't boil over.

Carnitas with Tomatillo Salsa

Carnitas basically cooks itself. After four hours in the oven with garlic and chilies, it's packed with flavor and makes a great meal served with warm corn tortillas and all the fixings.

Green Garlic Chicken

This golden, savory chicken cooked in a skillet with fresh herbs is a perfect spring dinner.

Pickled Ramps

Ramps are also know as wild leeks, and are similar to onion and garlic smashed together. These quick refrigerator pickles intensify their crunch, sharp bite, and pungent flavor.

Ham and Asparagus Strata

This breakfast casserole filled with cubes of ham and asparagus spears is easy to make, but looks elegant, and would be great for a weekend brunch.
