This luscious and creamy sweet potato souffle is the perfect special occasion side dish or vegetarian main course. With a luscious, creamy center and a melted cheese topping, it’s one of my all time favorite holiday side dishes, and it’s also a fabulous vegetarian anytime dinner when paired with a salad (it’s one of my husband’s favorite weeknight dinners). Best of all, it’s really easy to prepare, and it can be made in advance!! The soufflé gets whipped up right in the food processor using boiled sweet potatoes, nutty Comté cheese (you could go for a mild Gruyere instead), eggs, half-and-half, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of brown sugar. It has an irresistible sweet-and-savory flavor. You can use a classic round soufflé dish or any 2-quart baking dish.

Adapted from Build-a-Bowl, by Nicki Sizemore (Storey Publishing, 2018). Caramelized butternut squash gets tossed with maple-roasted pecans, brown rice (or any whole grain you like, such as farro, quinoa, barley or wheat berries), crisp apples, creamy goat cheese and a roasted garlic dressing for a salad that’s savory, sweet and full of texture and flavor. It’s a fantastic side dish or healthy main course. Best of all, it can happily sit at room temperature for several hours, making it perfect for entertaining or for packing into work lunches. If you want to really gussy it up, garnish the salad with fried sage leaves just before serving (see the notes below). Baby arugula and/or white beans are also a delicious addition! *Take note that you’ll need cooked grains for this recipe.

This pasta salad is such a simple dish that it barely needs a recipe; that’s part of the reason I love to make it! The second reason is that it gets some nice veggies into the kids’ diet without any fuss - they love pasta in every form. This is a great, easy supper dish. I often serve it with my wine-infused burger patties, for a hearty lunch or evening option. It’s also the perfect dish to feed to those guests who came round for coffee - and are still here hours later, when dinner is due! Cooking pasta is the easiest, quickest thing, and there is always enough in the fridge to help me rustle up this recipe. You might’ve noticed I use Greek yoghurt here, instead of mayonnaise. This really brings the calorie count back under control; it’s still an indulgent pasta, but the added protein from the Greek yoghurt and the decrease in calories make it easier to warrant cooking regularly. I tend to make a big batch of it, hoping to have it in the fridge to use as a side dish over the next two to three days - but my family often thwart this plan, demolishing it in one sitting!

The base for gaeng kua is a red curry paste made without the roasted cumin, coriander, and other spices ground into the standard red curry paste. Wild lime leaves are traditional, but if you cannot find them, you will still have a wonderful dish. Fresh pineapple is lovely, but canned pineapple works fine, too. With jasmine rice, nests of thin rice noodles or angel hair pasta, and a green salad, this makes an elegant little meal." -Nancy McDermott, Quick and Easy Thai. I'm a pretty good cook, but there is something about Thai food that's always seemed complicated and exotic to me. That's why I LOVE this book : Quick & Easy Thai by Nancie McDermott, (Chronicle Books, 2004). Nancie was kind enough to let me re-print one of my favorite recipes, which is a perfect mixture of the tastes I'm drawn to over and over again; tropical fruit, searing chilis, seafood, and Thai spices. I photographed some of the steps along with my final version of the dish to illustrate the process. Luckily the recipe was truly quick and easy because I wasn't about to wait. I inhaled this entire dish immediately after taking these photos.
