Risotto must be served immediately so you can best savor its rich creaminess. With this version containing seafood, there's just enough for two healthful portions. Complete the meal with a salad, bread, and crisp white wine.
Though aioli sounds fancy, it’s really just a garlicky mayonnaise. Here we use a combination of vegetable and olive oils since an aioli of solely extra-virgin olive oil can be overpowering (and expensive). You can just as easily swap out the grapeseed or veggie oil for more olive oil if you prefer the assertive flavor. Try a dollop in a bowl of Fish Stew or on a BLT

Top off our Smoky Beef Tacos with this salsa.
This is a great way to cook cauliflower because it half steams and half boils in the delicious sauce. It?s really nice served at the table in the pan it has cooked in, as it looks so different to any other conventional way of cooking cauliflower, but if you prefer you can serve it in a dish like I did in the picture. Even though I made this recipe up, it feels quite Mediterranean in style to me.

There is something so comforting about foods you grew up with, especially around the holidays. That’s why some people are such sticklers for tradition. My mom’s Pepperidge Farm and Jimmy Dean sausage stuffing is one of those dishes for me. But do I really have to use a store-bought stuffing mix and a particular sausage for this Thanksgiving side? This brand-free version proves I don’t. Game plan: If you don’t have a food processor, make the breadcrumbs by halving the loaves and using a fork to pull out small rough pieces (about 1/4 inch) from the interior.

The standard sugar cookie is great on its own, but for different personality types on your holiday list, we’ve got variations: Mexican chocolate for the sweets fan, coconut-date for the racy adventurer, and Meyer lemon and black pepper for the subtle sophisticate. Or maybe they’re just all for you. Game plan: Make extra batches, wrap them in plastic, and freeze for later use. To finish, take them out of the freezer and slice and bake as directed. The dough can be frozen up to a month. This basic recipe tastes great when the log is rolled in spiced sugar (1 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, cinnamon, or cardamom) prior to slicing.
