This curry hails from the Indian region of Punjab. The cardamom pods puff up to almost twice their size and float to the top, so they're easy to find and discard before serving. In just one serving, you get close to 10 grams of fiber, thanks to brown rice, chickpeas, tomatoes, and plenty of onion.

This luscious creamy dessert is not for the faint of heart. That's not because it's difficult - a child could put it together. It's not exotic either - it's the grown-up version of a nursery dessert of whipped pudding and Jell-O. No, there's just one reason that Coffee Fluff takes some gumption.
Simmering the shells infuses the broth with lobster flavor.
This entrée is a delicious springtime one-dish meal. You can use 2 1/4 cups fresh shelled green peas in place of the favas, or a combination of both.
St. Sava Serbian Sisters' Circle of Merrillville, Ind., provided this recipe for nut roll. These dedicated women volunteer at least three times a year to make thousands of nut rolls, strudels and palachinke as a fundraiser. Some cooks use honey in the walnut filling, but the Sisters' Circle or kolo, which means "circle," uses sugar, which makes this one of the more economical recipes for nut roll I've seen. Here, the kolo takes us through the steps for making Serbian nut roll.
Before refrigeration, pickling was a common way of preserving fruits, vegetables, meats and eggs in Poland and other parts of Eastern Europe. Pickled baby cucumbers, what we call just plain pickles, in hot broth was the winter counterpart to the summer offering of cold cucumber soup. In my family, we made dill pickle soup with a ketchup base. This more widely known variation uses sour cream and, if you substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stock, it is completely vegetarian. Today, thanks to refrigeration and the availability of year-round produce, this soup can be enjoyed winter or summer. Makes 6 servings

This delicious sorbet is tart, intense, and refreshing, thanks to the combination of passionfruit and raspberries. It's very easy to make. You can use fresh or frozen raspberries, or half strawberries and half raspberries. Frozen passionfruit pulp is available from Goya Foods, and I have found it at many supermarkets and latin markets. You can make this sorbet with or without an ice cream maker, although it will probably be slightly smoother and less icy if you use a machine.

I adore, though for extra rye flavor, I needed the ground caraway seeds. As for the fruit and nuts and seeds, I used what I had around, which was pumpkin seeds, dried sour cherries and a scoop of shredded coconut. Try it out with any mixture of seeds, chopped nuts, or dried fruit. Just promise me you'll toast it. A liberal application of butter is also close to essential.
