Spinach Tortilla with Pine Nuts
This classic Spanish omelette is a recipe that deserves a place in any cook’s repertoire. The caramelized onion is utterly delicious, making a beautiful contrast with the richness of the eggs — while the vibrant spinach lightens the whole dish and the sautéed pine nuts contribute their luxurious nuttiness. But no matter how tantalizing the ingredients, the most important thing with a good tortilla, at least in my book, is that it be moist. Inverting the tortilla and cooking the second side for only seconds will guarantee a beautiful result — worth both the trouble and the slight shakiness of your hand if you’ve never attempted the maneuver before. This spinach tortilla is ideal for lunch or a light dinner, served with a simple side of crisp greens. But I love serving it tapas style as well — where it is equally delectable warm and at room temperature.

Pine Nut Stuffed Mushrooms
My oh my are these ever yummy. If you’re a big stuffed mushroom fan in general, you’ll go wild for these cute little pine nut stuffed mushrooms. You’re probably going to giggle when I say this, but these cute bite-sized snacks are the 2012 of stuffed mushrooms. Seriously. They’re not difficult to make and literally take 30 minutes from start to finish. That’s right — no slaving in the kitchen over a hot oven. They’re tender and soft. Now normally, I prefer a chewier mushroom but I love the soft feel and texture of these. They’re perfectly savory and would be lovely drizzled with balsamic vinegar. See all mushroom recipes.

Fiddlehead Ferns with Pine Nuts, Pecorino, and Lemon Zest
Fiddlehead ferns have a slightly nutty flavor when cooked, and so I thought fiddleheads, toasted pine nuts, and salty, slightly funky pecorino would be a good combination. Lemon zest brightens things up a bit, and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil at the end seals in all the flavors. Click here to see Make Dinner More Interesting — 8 Great Side Dish Recipes.

Clams Steamed in Sake with Soy and Pine Nuts
In recent years, you may have read about umami, the mysterious fifth taste. If you're still having a hard time recognizing it, though, I'm going to take you right to the source. The Japanese were the first to identify this taste in dashi — the broth that is so central to their cuisine. It is made with kombu (a form of seaweed or kelp), dried bonito flakes, and water. I spike mine with sake, and the rest of the recipe carries home the Asian theme with tofu and tamari. The finished dish is a mix of tastes and textures that I think of as Japanese clams casino. When you eat it, remember that in Japanese, umami means "deliciousness." — Franklin Becker, Good Fat Cooking
