Last week I was planning dinner for visiting friends, and I was seized by a craving for cool, creamy chocolate mousse. I had a bag of Scharffen-Berger chocolate burning a hole in my baking cupboard and no desire to turn on the oven. But there was just one problem: my friend is pregnant, and my favorite recipe for chocolate mousse has not one but two pregnancy no-no's in it. What to do? Make pregnancy-safe chocolate mousse, of course!

These fried empanadas are filled only with melted cheese, and as empanadas go they are quick and easy to make. Despite their simplicity, they are my absolute favorite (maybe because they are fried?). Experiment with the filling - some people like to add a little bit of chopped onion or use a variety of cheeses. I prefer whole milk mozzarella cheese, which melts beautifully. You can also bake these empanadas with good results.
Grilling is probably our favorite way to cook duck. The fat drips away, leaving a crispy skin and basting the meat so it stays moist. Prep and Cook Time: about 1 hour, plus marinating time. Notes: Take the duck off the grill while it's still quite rosy, since you'll be cooking it further under the broiler (grilled duck breast is at its juiciest and tenderest when cooked medium rare). Duck breasts are usually available at gourmet grocery stores.

Crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside, these wheat-free biscuits come together quickly. Take care not to overwork the dough: Even though there’s no gluten present to toughen things up, working the butter and shortening as little as possible ensures that the biscuits stay light and fluffy. What to buy: Tapioca flour, also known as cassava flour, is made from the root of the cassava plant (a.k.a. yuca) and is often used as a thickening agent. Sorghum flour is made from the sorghum grain and has a texture similar to whole-wheat pastry flour. Guar gum is made from the seeds of the guar plant and is used in small amounts as a thickener and stabilizer. Special equipment: A plain 2-inch round biscuit cutter and a pastry brush are needed for this recipe. This recipe was featured as part of our gluten-free photo gallery.
This recipe for Serbian bread is known as lepinje za cevapi because it is traditionally served with cevapcici sausages and raw chopped onion tucked inside, and kajmak served on the side. Lepinje, also known as somun, is a yeast-raised flatbread that is a popular street food in the Balkans. Variations exist -- some cooks use oil in the dough and scatter the bread tops with sesame or cumin seeds before baking. It is baked initially at high temperatures to get that hollow, puffy shape like Middle Eastern pita. This egg-free bread is a great project for the kids.

Grilled meats in Argentina are never served without a side of chimichurri, a brightly colored sauce with herbs, garlic, and tangy vinegar.

This recipe was featured as part of our Argentine Grilling menu.

This recipe goes with Pecan-Grits Pie. Use this delicious crust with pecan, pumpkin, or apple pies - it has a delicate texture and browns nicely. Most cookbooks recommend a pastry blender for cutting shortening and/or butter into the flour mixture. Maybe because it's what Mother did - but I prefer to use my fingers to cut in the shortening. I usually remember the "proper method" and pick up a pastry blender to cut in the chunks of butter, but always go back to my fingers to make sure the mixture feels just right.
