Millet-Scallion Pancakes

These delicious pancakes turn out satisfyingly extra-crispy, thanks to a relatively dry batter, and pressing the pancakes flat in the pan.

Grapefruit Yogurt Cake

Deliciously flavored with grapefruit, this cake is light and springy. Nice for a sweet breakfast, or of course, for dessert.

Rustic French Beets

Possibly the most delicious way you’ve eaten beets, this recipe uses the greens in addition to the roots. They’re served with creamy Boucheron cheese and warm, crusty bread.

Fennel and Black Olive Ciabatta Pizza

Using ciabatta bread for pizza crust makes getting dinner on the table fast and easy. This pizza is topped with a tasty and classic Italian combination of sweet cherry tomatoes, fennel, briney black olives and savory parmesan.

Twice-Baked Potatoes with Kale

Stuffed with a bunch of lacinato kale, these potatoes are tasty and seem indulgent, but have enough green to be wholesome. Serves 3 as a hearty main, or 6 as a side.

Meyer Lemon Loaf

Perfectly lemony and lightly sweet, this bread is great with hot coffee for breakfast. A bonus is that it’s gluten-free!

Swedish Rye Cookies

These not-too-sweet, shortbread-style cookies are a great basic cookie to have in your back pocket. Barley or oat flour instead of the rye flour could be interesting here, or if you want something more neutral, regular all-purpose would work too!

Potato Leek Au Gratin

Scented with leek and garlic and enriched with cream and Gruyère, this gratin is baked in a low oven, which leaves a crispy crust and buttery potatoes. A mandoline will make quick work of the potatoes!

Cranberry Granita

Refreshing, light, and festive, this granita is the perfect way to finish a heavy meal.

Wild Rice Burgers

Sure to please vegetarians and omnivores alike, these hearty burgers are easy to make and are so satisfying, with sharp cheese and just a touch of heat. If you've cooked the wild rice ahead of time, this recipe comes together very quickly.

Harvest Pumpkin Dip

This is an easy but decadent dip to whip up. Serve with fresh apple or pear slices, or even sweet potato chips.

Pumpkin Pie in a Mug

This dessert is a cross between a pie and a cake, and is just the thing when you have a hankering for a slice of pumpkin pie.

Spiced Maple Glazed Pecans

Sweet, salty, and a little spicy, these easy roasted nuts would make a great gift (if you can part with them!).

Maple Roasted Root Vegetables

Winter root vegetables turn sweet and packed with flavor when roasted, and when lightly coated in maple syrup, they turn into a stand-out side dish.

Simple Gluten-Free Pie Dough

This lightly sweet, shortbread-style crust truly is easy - you don't even have to roll it out, just press it in the pan.

Perfect Mashed Potatoes

The key to light, fluffy mashed potatoes is a potato ricer: it gently turns the potatoes into tiny flakes, leaving you with perfect mashed potatoes. 

Apple Crumble

Apples are cooked once in a skillet before being topped with crumble and baked. The long cooking time turns the apples caramel-scented, sweet, and sticky.

Almond-Crisped Peaches

Improving upon perfect summer peaches seems unlikely, but baking them with a buttery and crisp topping makes it happen.

Buffalo-Style Bunched Turnips

This is certainly an unexpected treatment for turnips, but you won’t be disappointed! Crisp and tender bunched turnips are coated in spicy sauce and mellowed with tangy blue cheese. This is a great substitute for wings, perfect for vegetarians and adventurous eaters alike.

Green Garlic and Creamy Avocado Pesto Gnocchi

Green garlic is just young garlic, so the taste is milder and, depending on how young it is, usually isn’t encased in papery skin that needs to be peeled. Simply cut off the roots, and slice like an onion. You can eat the stalks as well, like scallions.

Fig Walnut Ice Cream

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

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.

 

Zucchini and Ricotta Galette

Zucchini and ricotta are nestled in a deliciously flaky and soft free-form crust in this straightforward galette. Good served hot out of the oven or at room temperature.

This hearty, delicious pizza, loaded with smoky grilled eggplant and provolone, can serve as a stepping stone for you into the exciting world of grilling pizzas!

Velvety Broccoli and Feta Pasta

This pasta is so creamy and rich, you'd think it was loaded with half-and-half. It's a quick, nourishing dinner, with a full pound of broccoli and some garlic and herbs.

Crostini with Ricotta and Pea Shoots

These easy to assemble crostini are topped with ricotta that's packed with early springtime flavors. If ramps aren't available yet, just use spring onions.

Ultimate Hot Chocolate

Velvety-smooth and intensely chocolatey, this hot chocolate will make you swear off mixes. The blending might seem unneccesary, but be sure to follow this step to achieve the perfect, smooth texture.

Thyme and Garlic Cheese Dip

Great spread onto sliced baguette rounds, or for dipping sliced raw vegetables into, this creamy dip will be a staple for parties or impromptu get-togethers.

Breakast Banana Split

A banana split for breakfast? This quick, easy, yummy breakfast takes a dessert classic and lightens it up for the morning. This is so easy, it hardly needs a recipe, and you can easily modify this one to suit what you have in your kitchen. Try cottage cheese in place of Greek yogurt, add nut or seed butter or instead of the preserves, sprinkle with walnuts or almonds, cinnamon, goji berries, or fresh fruit, the list goes on!
