7-Day Sweet Pickles

These yummy, sweet, tangy pickles take a little bit of work over the course of a week to prepare. They do not need to be processed in boiling water, but are shelf stable and will keep for 1 year. 

Almond Tahini Sauce

This sauce is so addictive. Try tossed with rice or udon noodles with vegetables for a filling meal.

Almond-Crisped Peaches

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

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.

Anatolian Yogurt Sauce

Refreshingly creamy and light, this sauce adds depth and richness to vegetable or meat sautés.

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.

Apple Hemp Muffins

High in protein, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, hemp seeds pack a serious nutritional punch.

Apple Pie Muffins

Throw them into a lunch box for a tasty mid-day treat, or enjoy them with a hot cup of tea or coffee first thing in the morning.

Aronia Berry Bread

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

Aronia Berry Bread Pudding

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

Artichoke and Broccoli Frittata

A savory egg dish perfect for any time of day. Broccoli and artichokes are a mouthwatering mixture, and are only improved by the addition of sharp melted cheddar and pungent Parmesan.

Arugula and Asparagus Ribbon Salad

During asparagus’s short season, serving it raw is a great way to enjoy it. Shaving the spears into thin ribbons and briefly marinating them in a quick vinaigrette turns the asparagus soft and almost creamy.

Arugula and Pear Salad

The butterhead lettuce and arugula combine with the pears and walnuts to make a slightly sweet but very sumptuous salad.

Arugula Pesto

Arugula pesto is a fun and slightly spicy alternative to basil pesto. Another great way to enjoy this delightful green.

Asparagus Mimosa

Delightfully green spears of fresh, tender asparagus tossed in a buttery sauce. Garnished with a chopped egg or tofu and granished with fresh chervil.

Asparagus Vinaigrette

Serve as is, or garnish with a chopped hard-boiled egg or a squeeze of lemon. Preparing asparagus simply, with its best friend the lemon, allows it to shine. 

Autumn Minestrone

If you are a fan of minestrone, you will surely enjoy this veggie-laden version. The kale is a particularly nice touch, imparting a complementary texture as well as a nutritional punch. Wholesome and satisfying, this soup seems to get better in the couple of days after it is cooked. You may find yourself distracted in the quiet of your workday, looking forward to your leftovers.

Avocado Burgers

A unique bean burger that utilizes avocado in the patty rather than as a condiment. A very nice variation on the veggie burger.

Avocado Hummus

Great with chopped veggies, pita chips, or on sandwiches. Yummy!

Avocado Ice Cream

“Most people have had avocado in a salty and/or spicy format, or at least as an accompaniment to something that is not primarily sweet. If you like avocado, however, you will really enjoy this ice cream. Its natural oil gives the ice cream a very smooth and silk mouth feel, and the lime juice heightens its flavor. Although it may taste too sweet before freezing in the ice cream maker, it will be just right when it’s done.” –Fany Gerson, author of My Sweet Mexico

Avocado Mint Salad

This distinctive salad is just the thing to get you out of a dinner rut. Tender bibb lettuce, torn and topped with avocado, ribbons of mint, and a fresh grapefruit juice dressing pleasantly startle and awaken taste buds. Especially delightful in the months of November through February, when Texas Rio Star grapefruit are in season.

Baba Ganoush

When prepared this way, eggplant takes on an incredible smoky flavor. You can do this in the oven, as described in the recipe, on a grill, or even over the open flame of your stovetop. You just want the eggplant to turn sunken and blackened.

Baba Ghanoush

Baba ghanoush is a Levantine eggplant dish that's perfect slathered on a slice of baguette, making it excellent picnic food. It's richly flavored with tahini, lemon, and lots of garlic.

Sweet and comforting fall food. Perfect for days filled with crisp leaf piles and pumpkin patches, when Wisconsin trees seem to burst into flame in front of our very eyes, rendering us unable to do anything but gaze up in quiet awe at our world, suddenly ablaze.

Baked Cauliflower

This will make a spectacular, but simple, side dish for friends or family!

Baked Eggs with Collards and Cheddar Garlic Polenta

Visually, this breakfast takes the (coffee?)cake. Nests of cheesy polenta grits are lined with wilted collards and filled with a bright and cheery egg, then baked in the oven until the egg sets. Hearty and appealing.

Baked Oatmeal

This is the type of deeply comforting breakfast that conjures memories of your childhood-wintry mornings spent in the warm kitchen while windows fogged and the din of dishes clinked gently in the sink. Pots of coffee sputtered while you set the table. Warning: may make you want to stay in your pajamas all day.

This delicious dip, with deeply caramelized onion, tart apple, and fragrant thyme, just happens to be gluten-free and vegan!
