A light and tasty salad perfect for a summer side dish or snack.
A great vegetarian pate that only takes 15 minutes to prepare. Great for spreading on little toast rounds or bread. The secret ingredient is a little touch of good quality balsamic vinegar.
This recipe makes a nice big batch, enough for a dinner party. If you want a more smooth, silky pate, add more olive oil.
If you don’t want to chop finely, you can serve the mushroom and onions as-is, right out of the pan.
Cranberry salsa as a compliment to my Thanksgiving menu is eye-opening for two main reasons: (1) uncooked cranberries, when properly balanced with more than just a ton of sugar, are bright in flavor and fun in texture, and (2) it gains big points for not monopolizing an already busy stove top. The real secret here, though, is agave nectar. It adds a creamy sweetness that tempers the tart nature of the cranberries.
Yes, you read that right, it’s a barbecued sweet potato pie. It’s not barbecued because I cooked the whole pie in the smoker—just the sweet potatoes for the filling. Despite sounding odd, the results were very good. The pie is very rich and has a subtle smoky flavor.
