"I grew up in a ranching family in West Texas," says Louis Lambert, "and every summer when it was time to work cattle—branding and shipping—a camp cook would prepare three meals a day over an open fire for all of the cowboys." One of the cook's staple dishes was chickpeas simmered in a large Dutch oven with a smoked ham hock and lots of onion, garlic and chiles. Louis's version includes robust sautéed kale.

This is a fantastic and really unusual salad that was inspired by a friend of mine called Das who runs the most terrific Indian restaurants in London, called Rasa. Although I have called it ?Keralan?, it isn't really a true salad from there as you'd never find cress in Kerala! In Rasa, Das uses a lot of fresh coconut ? which really is one of the most incredible flavors for making dishes like curries, or mixed into rice, breads, desserts and salads. You can now buy coconuts from most supermarkets, but if you can't find one, feel free to make this salad without it ? it will still be pretty good but it won't have that special edge to it. Only make this when the mangoes are silky smooth and not at all stringy. You should be able to cut through them like butter.
This cake resembles sticky toffee pudding, but Kate Neumann says it's "a dried fruit or two away from my grandmother's plum pudding." The cake, subtly spiced with cinnamon and ginger, gets topped with toasted nuts and a caramelly toffee sauce.

Deze groene chili is lekker eenvoudig te maken en echt een genot om te eten.

We love the icing-and-candy embellishments on these gingerbread people, but the cookies are just as charming when decorated more minimally from head to crumbly toe.

This recipe appears on the Martha Stewart Makes Cookies app for iPad.
Having all of the necessary ingredients prepared before beginning a risotto is best because the dish needs constant attention once it is started.

It's easy to make your own super nutritious granola bars. Quinoa has a very complete array of amino acids for a grain, and is rich in iron. Quinoa is usually sold in its natural state (see picture here ) - it resembles tiny seeds - which can be cooked in water into a rice-like pilaf. But you can also buy quinoa flakes (I buy them at Whole Foods), in which the grain is processed to look like oatmeal. Quinoa flakes can be substituted for oatmeal in any baked good. Add whatever dried fruits or nuts you like to these granola bars - your dry ingredients should total 3 to 4 cups.
