Smoked Salmon Crêpes with Creamed Peas

Recipes

This delicious (and quick!) yellow cake batter can be swapped into any recipes calling for a box of cake mix.

This soulful soup will give you an idea why kofta (made with spiced ground meat) is such a beloved dish in Turkey. In this recipe savory lamb meatballs are served with tender potatoes and a host of vegetables in a simple broth.

A mixture of ricotta, spinach and ground beef makes this classic baked pasta dish particularly satisfying. Grass-fed beef is rich and flavorful, so cooking with even a small amount makes a big impact.

Fun to make, a delight to the eyes and absolutely yummy, this jelly roll-style cake is a holiday favorite.

A simple batter bakes up into a light (and not too sweet) cake which is perfectly complemented by the buttery caramelized pineapple topping. 

The deep earthy flavor and meaty texture of cremini mushrooms is the base of this hearty recipe. Add the arugula to the hot pasta just before serving to preserve some of the leafy texture and punch of the greens.

This recipe combines the tangy flavor of quick-pickled spinach with ground pork and is served over rice. The original version would use water spinach, but we substituted more widely available baby spinach.

Here's an oven-baked dish that's an easy solution for busy weeknights. Serve with green beans alongside and dinner is done. If you're not crazy about curry, substitute dried dill for the curry powder, though your rice won't be quite as "sunny."

Searing green beans in a dry wok gives them a mild smoky flavor; you can get the same blistered effect with a large cast-iron skillet if you don't have a wok.

You'll be surprised how easy and tasty this kale preparation is. Andrea from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, sent us this recipe with a note: "It's the only recipe I've found where the kale is not masked by other flavors or cooking methods, and it's crunchy.

The mildly sweet flavor of wakame, which is a good source of dietary fiber and potassium, combines with mushrooms and crunchy broccoli in this Asian inspired medley. After being soaked then sautéed, the wakame becomes silky with a hint of chewiness.

Moist and dense in texture, the bread includes wholesome ingredients, such as oats and fresh banana, and is easy to prepare and very adaptable, accommodating your choice of chopped nuts or dried fruit in place of the cranberries.

This holiday table centerpiece, sweet on the outside and savory on the inside, makes a memorable main course. Encourage guests to eat the sliced oranges along with the ham since the roasting makes their peels tender and sweet.

Thanks to the reader who sent in the recipe for this pasta dish full of bright and unexpected flavors. She says, "My kids and I can whip this up in ten minutes! They love to take it for lunch." Sounds like a great idea to us.

This simple combination of leafy green lettuce, sweet red onion, sliced apples, roasted pecans and dried cherries tossed in raspberry vinaigrette can serve as a main lunch entrée or on the side in a more extravagant meal.

Perfect for families with different tastes (i.e. picky eaters), each person makes their dinner exactly the way they want it. No hassles.

We can't resist making huge batches of this great salad. Take liberties with the ingredients, as this recipe is best when prepared according to your own taste. If you prefer, cook the broccoli in boiling water until tender before adding it to the salad.
