This pairs well with Indian dishes, but is also a nice topping for sandwiches and burgers, or as an accompaniment to steamed or roasted vegetables.
Use this recipe as a starting point. Toast the almonds if you like, or use walnuts or pine nuts instead. If you have other herbs on hand, add them to the parsley. This is of course delicious on pasta, but try it on roasted potatoes or lightly steamed vegetables.
If you've never tried your hand at making jam, this is a simple recipe to get you started, and is endlessly adaptable. You can add cinnamon, star anise, cloves, or cardamom. The marmalade will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

"If you've always been a bit disappointed by icy semifreddo and other machine-free frozen desserts, I feel your pain. But trust me - even after sitting in the freezer for 24 hours, this baby is creamy, soft, and seriously good - not an icicle in sight. Delicious as a dessert or on its own, it would also be brilliant in all those places that ice cream works so well. Yum. The only thing is that it is quite strongly honey-flavored, which is great in most cases, but could be a little overpowering as an accompaniment to something like passionfruit souffle." -Jules Clancy
Roasting the cauliflower and garlic together not only saves time, but also infuses the cauliflower with the garlic's robust flavor. Mint also adds a surprising and delightful flavor to this simple and tasty dish!

“This is a really easy way to enjoy ramps (also known as wild leeks) in springtime. The origins of this recipe are Italian, where they call this method, agrodolce, or sweet-and-sour. How easy is this? It’s just sauteed ramps or baby leeks, simmered in a mixture of white wine vinegar and honey.”
“This earthy salad recipe is adapted from Elizabeth Schneider's Uncommon Fruits & Vegetables (Perennial Library 1986). The sourness of the sorrel and bitterness of the endive are countered by the sweetness of balsamic vinegar and walnuts.” – NPR.com
Don’t cook sorrel for extended periods of time in cast iron pots/pans… the acidity of the sorrel reacts with the iron and creates a metallic-tasting dish!
Spring is in the air and I for one am ready to head outside and fire up the grill! Be sure to hold onto this gem for more grilling throughout the summer.
When making this soup, keep in mind that the spicy flavors will increase as time goes on!
