Chili-Rubbed Snapper

Garlic powder is an extremely convenient ingredient for use in dry rubs. If you were to use chopped fresh garlic on the surface of this baked fish, you would run the risk of burning the garlic. Serve the fish with any of the salsas in the pantry section.

Fresh Ginger & Lime Dressing

When shopping for fresh ginger, look for pieces that are smooth and plump, avoiding those that are dry or withered, as they won’t yield much juice. If you’d rather not grate and squeeze fresh ginger, look for bottled ginger juice and substitute 2 tablespoons for the fresh squeezed.

Cauliflower Gratin

If you only need a single serving of this, cook up the whole amount and save the remainder for lunch the next day. It's great cold.

Caramelized Onion & Apple Focaccia

This rendition of the classic Italian flatbread is served here as an hors d’oeuvre, but you can also serve it as a bread to go along with a meal. Cut it into larger portions and serve with a soup or salad.

Shiitake-Barley Stew

To get "double-strength" green tea, use TK tea bags and TK boiling water and steep for TK minutes. (check biscotti recipe, I think I have the numbers there). DOES THIS HAVE ENOUGH OF ANYTHING TO MAKE IT A MAIN COURSE?--no

Radiatore Romesco

You will be amazed at how pureeing fresh tomatoes with canned tomato sauce can enliven the overall flavor of a red sauce. Add a touch of fresh or dried chili pepper, some homemade bread crumbs and ground almonds as thickeners, and you’ve made a simple Romesco sauce. Serve this pasta as a main course with steamed artichokes vinaigrette to start and for dessert, present melon balls chilled in port, with a plate of biscotti for dipping into after-dinner espresso.

Breakfast Bread Pudding with Apple-Raspberry Sauce

For a real treat, you could serve the bread pudding topped with some fresh raspberries and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar.

Mango-Tapioca Pudding

As the pudding cooks, the tapioca pearls swell and turn translucent, giving this dessert the appearance that earned it its affectionate nickname: fish eyes and glue. Most tapioca puddings are made with milk and eggs, but for a lighter, more tropical feeling, we’ve cooked the tapioca in mango nectar. You could also try this with another fruit nectar, such as apricot. Timing alert: Because the tapioca needs to be soaked and the cooked pudding needs to be chilled, you should start this dessert about 9 hours before you want to serve it.

Cilantro-Garlic Barbecue Sauce

If you like, make a double batch of this sauce and use it to toss with pasta or to spoon over grilled vegetables.


Sometimes the hankering for something between two pieces of bread becomes overwhelming. Keep your sanity by making a quesadilla with low-carb tortillas. Instead of an overload of cheese and meat, this recipe delivers another high dose of greens. Make sure you squeeze the spinach dry or you will be unhappy with me!
