If you don't have cooked rice on hand, use boil-in-a-bag rice (such as Success Rice) and follow the microwave directions. Cool the rice slightly before adding egg. Total time: 45 minutes.
Dean Fearing and Jill Bates, the pastry chef at Fearing's, collaborated on this spiced pumpkin pudding covered with meringue swirls. "It's what all Southerners love about their pies, whether they're coconut, chocolate or banana—the meringue," Fearing says.
This top-rated pumpkin bread offers great flavor without the extra fat and calories of traditional pumpkin bread recipes. A sprinkling of chopped pecans on top adds great seasonal flavor as well.
Seasonal vegetables and healthy orzo take center stage in this family-friendly casserole dish.
With the news that dark chocolate contains some healthful properties, there is a better excuse than ever to indulge during the holiday season. Specks of green pistachios and red dried cherries in this chocolate confection make for a festive holiday gift.
"Trust me," says A16's chef Nate Appleman about this unorthodox recipe. He quickly grills whole fava beans, tosses them with a crushed red pepper dressing and serves them hot. They can be eaten whole—the tender pods develop a lovely charred flavor on the grill—but it's also easy to eat them in the traditional way by popping the beans out of their pods and outer skins.
You'll need 12 ramekins (6-oz. capacity).
Prep and Cook Time: 1 hour, 50 minutes. Notes: For a vegetarian side dish, leave out bacon and increase butter to 4 tbsp. and salt to 1 tsp.
A small amount of cream is all it takes to make these mushrooms taste luxurious.
The nice thing about this recipe is that the fruit accompanying it can be varied ? certain things work really well with chocolate, like oranges, clementines, apricots or cherries, so give them a try.

We've always secretly liked scooping up a bite of salad with a piece of pizza, and lately the idea of mounding dressed greens on top of pizza has caught on with hot chefs, too.
In addition to providing protein and fiber, lentils are a significant source of folic acid. Even more folic acid comes from the wheat germ used to bind the burgers, and from the whole wheat buns. These burgers pack 143 micrograms of folic acid--more than one-quarter of a day's recommendation. Tzatziki, the garlicky Greek yogurt sauce, makes a healthful and tasty alternative to mayonnaise.

Melt any excess chocolate that drips onto the baking pan, strain it, and reserve for future use.
The beauty of making your own amaretto lies in controlling the sugar content of this almond liqueur. In a side-by-side tasting of our homemade amaretto and popular commercial brands, ours was less sweet and had a true almond flavor. For the sweet tooths out there, just add more sugar. What to buy: Apricot kernels are the dried seeds of fresh apricots. They have an almondlike yet bitter flavor and can be found online. Bottled or purified water is important because any impurities in the water may affect the final flavor of the liqueur. Special equipment: You’ll need a flat-bottomed, basket-style paper coffee filter. (The smaller, cone-style coffee filters are not big enough and tend to fall over during the filtering process.) Try bumming one from your local coffee shop or buy some online. You will also need two large pieces of ultrafine woven cheesecloth. It can be purchased at cooking supply stores or online. Game plan: After the soaking and combining the macerating ingredients, there is a 4-week waiting period, so if you’re planning on giving your homemade amaretto as a gift, be sure to factor in the month of infusing time.
The whipped cream topping can be made four hours ahead if kept chilled and covered. If you don't have Chambord, use Grand Marnier, crème de cassis (black currant-flavored liqueur), or two teaspoons raspberry extract for the sugar syrup.
A pint of this beer cocktail goes down so easily that some bartenders and pubs in the UK refuse to make it. Rumor has it that even former president Bill Clinton was denied at an English pub when he tried to order one with his lunch. The best thing about making a Snakebite yourself is that no one is going to stop you from having another. But proceed with caution. This drink was featured as part of our Beer Cocktail Recipes photo gallery.
Sweet raisins and tart apples, plus salty blue cheese make for a quick salad to accompany almost any main dish. For one more element, add chopped walnuts.
Try It With: Smoked turkey, pulled pork, fried green tomatoes, or warm baked brie.
The blend of fiery mustard and jalapeño with sweet candied kumquats is what makes this sauce so sensational. The kumquats have a thin, edible rind loaded with powerful phytonutrients.
This fresh-tasting dish can also be chilled and served for lunch. The recipe can be made with many different pastas, including penne or shells. Any leafy green, such as spinach or arugula, can be substituted for the watercress.
This buttercream holds its shape particularly well, making it good for decorating. If the buttercream becomes too soft while piping, stir it over an ice-water bath until it stiffens. This recipe can be used to make our Flower Cake.
The chips can be made up to one day ahead. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
Prep and Cook Time: about 1 1/4 hours. Notes: To toast the hazelnuts, place whole nuts in an 8- or 9-inch-wide pan and bake in a 350° oven, shaking pan occasionally, until golden brown under skins, 10 to 12 minutes. Pour nuts onto a clean kitchen towel and rub to remove loose skins; lift nuts from towel, leaving skins behind. You can store the cookies airtight for up to 3 days.
This vegetarian twist on the corn dog, with melty pepper jack cheese and a crispy jalapeño-laden crust, has flavors reminiscent of Chiles Rellenos and far surpasses boring fried mozzarella sticks served with marinara sauce. Try dipping these snacks in spicy Roasted Tomato Salsa and serving them with a round of margaritas for a little Tex-Mex flair. Special equipment: You will need a deep-frying/candy thermometer and a tall, narrow container or drinking glass, such as a pint glass, for this recipe. You will also need wood coffee-stirrers. If you can’t find them, substitute 6-inch wood skewers instead. What to buy: If you can’t find 8-ounce blocks of pepper jack cheese, cut a 1-pound block into 16 smaller rectangular blocks that are approximately 2 inches long and 1 inch wide and tall. This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Corn Dogs project.
Though frittatas are often served cooled as a first course, they make an equally good main dish, either warm or at room temperature. Here ricotta mellows the bite of broccoli rabe.
This savory main-course salad is as satisfying as it is restorative. "According to Thai belief, both peas and pea shoots are revitalizing, as well as good for digestion," Su-Mei Yu says. "And escarole strengthens muscles and bones."
This lightened classic is sweet-tart perfection and a delicious ending to any meal. You'll love the make-ahead convenience. Brush edges of crust with egg wash for nice browning.
Ian Garrone collaborated with Allen Kuehn of the San Francisco Fish Company, Far West Fungi's Ferry Building neighbor, to create this earthy, elegant recipe. Briefly soaking the salmon in fresh orange juice before broiling it creates a deeply caramelized glaze that is so delicious you will never want to cook salmon any other way.
Caramelized pearl onions are a sweet, easy accompaniment to any holiday meal. This recipe takes only 10 minutes to sauté.
This delicious almond cake is named in honor of Santiago (St. James), the patron saint of Spain. His remains are buried in the city of Santiago de Compostela, Galicia. During the Middle Ages, the pilgrimage to Santiago was the most important pilgrimage of the Christian world. Today, many people still make the trip to Santiago not just for religious reasons, but as a cultural, historical or active vacation. The cake’s origin is not certain, but it may have been brought to Galicia by a pilgrim. Today, this cake is sold all over Santiago de Compostela and is popular with tourists and pilgrims.
This dish hails from Burgundy, where rich wines flow almost like water. It is simultaneously a dish of the farm and of the bourgeoisie--a fine coq au vin can go anywhere. Serve with our Baguette to soak up all the flavorful juices. It's also good with the Pommes Anna and a simple green salad. You can use precut chicken quarters--you just won't have the giblets. We've made the bouquet garni in leek leaves, but you can do it in cheesecloth, if you prefer. This dish must be made a day ahead.
Anise tea is very popular in the Middle east. It sometimes used medicinally to sooth a stomachache or to relieve gas. It is even given to children.
Ginger beer is one of my favorite things in the world, especially blooming good in the summer when it's getting hot. I can't think of anything more sexy than having a big jug of iced ginger beer on the table with a barbecue on a hot day. The classic real ginger beers use a starter, and these are fantastic but slow, so here's my shortcut for getting amazing results taking hardly any time.
The inspiration for this dish is Buffalo chicken wings. We breaded and baked catfish strips, then drizzled them with a spicy sauce. If you don't like spicy foods, omit the hot pepper sauce.
The ultimate forager’s meal, this burger is loaded with ingredients from the wild. With earthy mushrooms, sweet onions, and a kick from the horseradish, it’s full of flavor and filling enough to count as two meals. This recipe was featured as part of our Most Delicious Sandwiches photo gallery.
This toaster tart could be a first cousin of pain au chocolat. A flaky cocoa-flavored pastry surrounds a fudgy chocolate ganache center. These hand pies are drizzled with a light vanilla glaze. Game plan: You can roll the dough scraps into 1 or 2 more tarts, but you’ll then need extra filling and glaze. You can make the dough a day in advance; just be sure to let it soften at room temperature for about 10 minutes before rolling out. Though best when eaten fresh, the cooled pop tarts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days at room temperature. Reheat them, if desired, in a 300°F oven on a baking sheet until hot, about 10 minutes. Freezing is not recommended. This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Pop Tarts project.
A pan-seared steak is one of life’s great pleasures. Here we substitute bison for beef and top it with a rich brandy-butter pan sauce. Game plan: If you want the richness of beef without any of the guilt, bison is your answer. The only downside to this low-fat meat is that it dries out quickly, so cooking these steaks beyond medium rare is not recommended. This recipe was featured as part of our Easy Weeknight Dinners photo gallery.
It’s hard to find chips that pair well with Polynesian-style Ahi Tuna Poke, so we made our own using wonton wrappers, salt, vegetable oil, and furikake (a mixture that may contain toasted sesame seeds, crushed and toasted nori, dried and ground fish, sugar, and salt). What to buy: Furikake can be found at most Whole Foods, gourmet grocery stores, or online.
We like a soft-cooked egg for the "sauce" it makes for the salad, but a firmer fried egg is tasty, too; cook it a minute or two longer before covering the skillet.
