Arugula and Roasted Cauliflower Salad
Arugula and Roasted Cauliflower Salad

    Roasting cauliflower to a golden brown brings out scrumptious flavors. Tossed with spicy arugula this salad is really a tremendous treat -- anytime.

Aromatic Parsnips and Carrots

    Two Autumnal classics, carrots and parsnips, are made extra special with complementary flavors reminiscent of India -- fennel, cinnamon, coriander, and garlic.

Fingerling Potatoes

    Fingerling potatoes are fabulous simply roasted with oil, salt, and pepper. Add the garlic-infused dipping sauce and it's beyond fabulous.

Celery Root and Sweet Potato Cakes

    Sweet Potato and Celery Root Cakes are a fun twist on classic potato pancakes. The sweetness of the celery root and sweet potatoes are balanced by the spice from the cumin.

Apple, Bacon, and Leek Bread Pudding

    Apple, Bacon, and Leek Bread Pudding is a fabulous substitute for stuffing. Many of the same flavors are in the pudding - it's just not necessary to roast a whole bird to get the full delight from the recipe.

Olive Focaccia

    Hints of the Mediterranean come through in this rosemary and olive-studded focaccia.

Roast Turkey with Sweet Onion Jam

    For a fresh twist on classic Thanksgiving turkey, try this unique recipe. A garlic-infused jam forms a flavorful crust as the turkey roasts.

Walnut and Sage Pesto Turkey Breast

    Pesto is such an incredible spread. This one takes it a step further to make it perfect for Thanksgiving. It stars the flavors of sage and walnuts, in place of the traditional basil and pine nuts.

BBQ Spice-Rubbed Turkey Breast

    The spices are hallmarks of southwestern cooking -- cumin, chili powder, garlic, and pepper. The recipe is highly flavorful, easy and, delicious. The recipe for cranberry barbecue sauce is a great match for this turkey.

Fresh Grape Chutney

    This chutney marries perfectly with the olive focaccia but is versatile enough to go with pork and chicken as well.

Sweet and Spicy Nuts

    These nuts are a little spicy, a little sweet, a lot delicious.

Onion-Thyme Gravy

    This delicious gravy goes great with all sorts of different turkey recipe variations.

Chili Chocolate Torte and Cinnamon Whipped Cream

    Chocolate and chili are a standard combination for things that are not sweet, but in this recipe for a Chili Chocolate Torte, the warm spices add to the depth of the flavors and give it a mysterious little kick.

Earl Grey Pound Cake with Lemon Curd

    A very clever pairing of lemon and tea. It's a classic flavor match deliciously served up in a different treatment.
