ROASTED SWEET POTATO SALAD with WALNUTS & POMEGRANATE

This nutrient-packed root vegetable doesn't always need to be marshmallow-topped! Try them roasted with thyme and tossed in a salad with peppery greens, toasted walnuts and pomegranates, then dressed with an elegant champagne vinaigrette. Perfect as a first course for your holiday feast! Serve the salad with a Brut Sparkling wine or an oakey Chardonnay.

HALLOWEEN HUMMUS  (AKA Pumpkin Hummus)

HALLOWEEN HUMMUS (AKA Pumpkin Hummus)

I love this twist on everyone’s favorite protein-packed snack! Full of Autumn flavor, this savory dip is perfect all fright night on your dinner buffet and best served with homemade “scary tortilla chips”, pita triangles or veggies. For a sweet twist, make homemade cinnamon sugar baked tortilla and add a tablespoon of maple syrup to the hummus.

DRY-BRINED and ROASTED HOLIDAY TURKEY

DRY-BRINED and ROASTED HOLIDAY TURKEY

Inspired by L.A. Times Food Editor Russ Parsons’ perfect turkey, this is my new take on the ultimate Thanksgiving bird. Rather than a wet brine, which takes up so much room in the fridge (a bucket or pot, etc.), this salt cure adds moisture and tremendous flavor to your holiday turkey plus you get the most gorgeous crispy skin.
Another great benefit…if you’re using a frozen turkey (I prefer fresh), you can dry brine the bird as it thaws, since the pores in proteins open up during thawing (a great trick!). You will need to start the process three days before you have your feast, so plan to pick-up your holiday turkey early to allow for the dry-brine process. You can roast, fry or even grill the turkey as you like, but try this method; I think you’ll love it~
ROASTED CORNISH GAME HENS  with VANILLA CHERRY SAUCE

ROASTED CORNISH GAME HENS with VANILLA CHERRY SAUCE

This recipe makes any occasion special. If you’re serving a small crowd, game hens are a wonderful substitute for a big turkey…and the flavors of cherry and vanilla compliment poultry beautifully.
ROASTED PARSNIP & PEAR PUREE

ROASTED PARSNIP & PEAR PUREE

Planning for Holiday feasts? This is a lovely change of pace from mashed potatoes; a velvety puree of earthy parsnips and sweet autumn pears. A perfect pairing for turkey or seared scallops, this recipe freezes well and can easily be doubled. Take the leftover puree, add chicken broth, and you have an amazing Winter Soup.

TUSCAN FRITTATA

For Breakfast or Brunch (or Breakfast for Dinner), or a protein-filled snack…I love frittatas! You can be as creative as you wish when it comes to the vegetables…the following combination is one of my favorite food memories from a delicious trip in Italy.
 SPICY SPLIT PEA SOUP

  • Origin: Soups

SPICY SPLIT PEA SOUP

Simple to prepare on top of the stove and even simpler when made in your slow cooker or crock pot, this recipe makes a fabulous, spicy version of split pea soup. If you are not a Chorizo lover, use a ham hock to impart flavor, then remove the hock before pureeing the soup.
