Turkey Sliders
Though this picture isn't the prettiest thing ever, it's only because we were in such a hurry to eat them that we didn't arrange them properly on a plate. I made these with with friends the other night, everyone pitching in to do one part of the recipe: Someone cooked the bacon, another toasted the baguette, etc. It was quick, easy and a healthier version of regular meatball sliders. You can use a more traditional bun if you'd like, or even make these into full-size patties. We ate these with the Roasted Sweet Potatoes Wedges with Rosemary and Sea Salt recipe.

Spice-Crusted Duck
My visit to a bee sanctuary in Sonoma, Calif., inspired me to start cooking more with honey. It is a versatile ingredient that adds a nice, floral sweetness.  Honey is a fantastic product that not only provides incredible flavor and sweetness, but also is healthy. The honey-glazed duck breast recipe pairs very well with both the Trimbach gewurztraminer, which is always very food friendly, and the carmenere from Errazuriz made in Chile.

These individual triangular, free-form tarts use my favorite type of pastry, made with cream cheese. It is wonderfully light, flaky, buttery, and melts in the mouth.

Cumin-Crusted Oven Fries
It’s hard to resist potatoes. Puréed, boiled, baked, fried, roasted... no matter how you cook them, these humble roots always taste good. But bake oven fries with cumin seeds and these spuds are not just good, they’re sublime. The cumin seeds, while roasting along with the potatoes, acquire a deep flavor and add a bit of crunch to each slice — making them addictive and dreamy! Naturally, these oven fries are scrumptious on their own and make a versatile side dish. Here’s to those humble spuds! Click here to see the Basic Mayonnaise Recipe.

Sautéed Beet Greens with Cumin, Lemon Zest, and Crispy Fried Garlic
Swiss chard is one of the most widely available (and consumed!) leafy greens. Beet greens, on the other hand, are usually unceremoniously tossed in the trash… the roots are typically the main attraction. But did you know that beets and Swiss chard belong to the same family of vegetables? In fact, the beet greens can be cooked exactly the same way you would cook Swiss chard. The only difference is that they have a hint of beet flavor to them, which makes them extra-delicious — at least to my taste buds. Whenever you're buying bunched beets, look for leaves that are bright green and perky. The freshness of the leaves guarantees the freshness of the roots. Plus, you get two for one — you'll cook the roots for sure, but you'll also sauté the tops to make this massively flavorful side dish!

Butternut Squash and Leek Latkes with Pan-Roasted Cumin
Of course, the potato latke is de rigueur on any Hanukkah menu, but why not serve latkes with other seasonal ingredients, I wondered? That’s when sweet, delicate butternut squash came to mind... and this recipe was born. Because the squash is grated raw, the latkes remain light and slightly crunchy. The addition of the pan-roasted cumin seeds bring these lovely morsels an exotic flair, while the sour cream helps to pull the flavors together.

Cumin-Crusted Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Salsa Verde
I love to use this recipe in my cooking classes, as it's easy and delicious. The key to making a moist pork tenderloin is to quickly sear it first, and not let it overcook. This pairs well with a medium-bodied pinot noir, possibly from Carneros, Russian River Valley, or Oregon.

Sweet Pea Soup with Cumin-Mint Coulis
Sweet peas are some of the vegetable kingdom's greatest little gifts. They're perfectly sized, vibrant, and sweet — and they possess an irresistible "green" flavor. Come spring, they’re also one of the first vegetables to show up at farmers' markets or bearing fruit in your garden. I love to eat sweet peas in many different ways: sautéed with basil and mint, or in a wholesome-yet-delicious bowl of farro, or sometimes even in a salad. But now I’m excited to share a recipe with you that I think makes the sweet pea even more enticing. Not only is this soup full of that addictive green-pea essence, it's also a perfect canvas for the exotic flavors of the coulis. The pan-roasted cumin, the fresh herbs, and the hint of heat in the coulis, paired with the sweetness of the peas, deliver a truly unique taste experience. Needless to say, the soup is superb with fresh peas, but you can use frozen ones, too. They work just as well.
