At home, I like to jazz things up by adding a mayonnaise spiked with Peppadews, those miniature red peppers from South Africa that are pickled to sweet-and-sour perfection to my chicken sandwich. If you can't find them, substitute your favorite bread-and-butter pickle.
There's no rule that says you've got to make pizza with a classic red tomato sauce.
With that in mind, why not start with your favorite barbecue sauce? Kids and grown-ups alike love it because it's sweet and tangy. Layer the flavors by using the sauce to marinate chicken and then to brush on top of the pizza dough. Add the smoky sweetness of grilled onions and some delicious cheese, and you've got a grilled pizza that's as fun as it is sophisticated.

When you only have 20 minutes to spare and three hungry mouths to feed, more often than not a parent will pull something not-so-nutritious out of the freezer — or opt for takeout. But it doesn't have to take tons of time or money to serve your family a nutritious and delicious dinner.
Inspired by a dish I had in Austria, where tender veal cutlets were seared and then doused in a rich, berry pan sauce, this healthy dinner takes only minutes to prepare and is full of delightful flavors that won't have you reaching into the freezer for ice cream later.
In an effort to save money, I've opted for chicken cutlets here. But if you're willing to lay down some extra bucks, opt for thin paillards of veal, and then add an extra oomph of flavor to the sauce with a tablespoon of dark berry jam, balsamic vinegar, and a couple of tablespoons of dark dried fruits. Oh, and you'll need a lovely loaf of pain de campagne to mop up all the juices, believe me.
