Thumb_4706_Mushroom, Arugula And Pecorino Salad

Thumb_4706_Mushroom, Arugula And Pecorino Salad

Spicy arugula is perfect for a mushroom and pecorino combination with a lemon-oil dressing. This is a salad that goes well with nearly everything and lightens up a heavy meal.

Thumb_6712_Broiled Salmon With Miso

Be sure to spread just a very thin layer of miso paste across the salmon. Too much will overpower the clean flavor of the fish. What you want instead is a rich, salty crust to the salmon. We prefer a lighter white miso, but a darker paste will work just as well.

Thumb_8815_French Onion Soup

Thumb_8815_French Onion Soup

This old-fashioned French classic has become an American comfort food staple over the years. Slow-cooked onion soup flavored with cognac and topped with French bread and gooey melted cheese always hits the spot on a winter's day.

Thumb_5107_Jasmine Rice

Thumb_5107_Jasmine Rice

Jasmine rice is naturally fragrant, so it's delicious without any fuss at all.  But you can dress it up with a teaspoon of butter, a few drops of olive oil, or some fresh lime juice added to the water while cooking.  This staple grain goes so well with almost any cuisine, from Indian to American barbecue. 

Thumb_8084_Frisee Salad

Thumb_8084_Frisee Salad

The slightly prickly and bitter frisée is a beautiful contrast to richer meat and cream-based dishes. The variations and additions are endless for this basic salad, but we also love a big bowl of frisée by itself as a mid-afternoon snack or as the finish to a big meal.

Thumb_9237_Szechuan Wok-Fried Chicken

Thumb_9237_Szechuan Wok-Fried Chicken

The secret ingredient of Szechuan food is Szechuan pepper, which gives the food its tingly numbing effect. Your smoke alarm may go off while you're frying, but it's worth it. Read more about this recipe at Rasa Malaysia.

Straw mushrooms are optional but they transform this humble recipe and add extra flavor, texture, and color. Read more about this recipe at Rasa Malaysia.

Thumb_12388_Grilled Halibut With Caper-Butter Lemon Juice

Thumb_12388_Grilled Halibut With Caper-Butter Lemon Juice

Here’s a quick sauce for grilled fish that delivers a huge lemon punch. It’s less a lemon-caper butter than a caper- and butter-flavored lemon juice. For more recipes like this, visit hogwash.

Thumb_12005_Miso Soup With Clams

Thumb_12005_Miso Soup With Clams

This is my Asari Miso Soup, or a deluxe version of plain miso soup. The addition of clams perks up the traditional broth with a hint of brininess. I use red miso paste and like to serve it with steamed rice. Read more about this recipe at Rasa Malaysia.

Thumb_13978_Apple-Pear Crisp

There couldn't be a more comforting -- and simple -- home-style dessert than this crisp. This recipe benefits from the added dimension of both apple and pear flavors. Read more about this recipe at the Washington Post.

Thumb_16582_Perfect Pecan Pie

Thumb_16582_Perfect Pecan Pie

Cookbook author and baking instructor Rose Levy Beranbaum insists this pie be made in a tart pan "so that every bite contains the same amount of crust, nuts and filling." Read more about this recipe at The Washington Post.

Should you wish to make a larger amount, it's a better idea to make multiple batches. Adding more eggs and milk, for example, will increase cooking time.
