I love pumpkin pie, sugar and spice and all things both nutritious and comforting. This bowl of hot cereal has it all. It reheats during the week for quick but staying breakfasts. If you have canned pumpkin on hand (maybe from making pumpkin muffins), it goes to a wonderful cause in this amazing oatmeal.
I worked very hard to make this recipe extra special and it is as fine as any bistro offering. Make as many ravioli as you want and then freeze them and pop them in simmering water when you want a special meal or a unique Thanksgiving offering. You can use fresh pasta sheets to make the ravioli (and cut with a paring knife into small squares or a round or square ravioli cutter) or handier still, won ton wrappers. Won ton wrappers are easier to work with unless you you’re your own fresh pasta or really supple, soft, fresh pasta from a gourmet shop. Store-bought fresh pasta (in our testing) was too tough to work with. Canned pumpkin is a noble shortcut but make sure you purchase plain pumpkin (not spiced pumpkin puree). For your own pumpkin filling, roast (not boil) the pumpkin.
This is easy if you make the filling ahead (it keeps for two days in the fridge) and assemble what you need for a meal and freeze the rest. Bakers tip: parchment paper to lay the ravioli out on, a pastry brush for the egg wash and make sure your pasta is very thin (whether it is store-bought or homemade) for a very tender ravioli.
A bit of Patak’s to the rescue, a few spices, a few vegetables and a nutritious, delectable entrée in minutes. Meat eaters and vegetarians will finally agree on something: this is delicious and easy. It has a ton of vitamens and if you added steam kale, spinach or broccoli, you would be more than all set.
Mixed grains, pine nuts, and cranberries and that great feeling that comes with good food, well made, and enjoyed.
Potatoes and Swiss Raclette (melting) cheese are a natural combination.
Hot soup. Quick. Fast. Light. It is just the thing for post holiday recovery.You know what ramen is - those cello packet, sometimes cardboard containers, of instant, "oriental" style noodle soup. What can you do with something instant to give it a bit a flair and a heap more nutrition? A lot!
I am pretty partial to hummus and never, much like eggplant dishes, met a recipe I didn’t like. This one, I love. Probably because I love beets. I first had this served on cucumber slices – the combination of beet-red hummus atop crisp cucumber coins was incredibly refreshing. But pita bread works well too as the ‘side’. If you were in a rush, canned beets would be acceptable.
Tasty and nutritious. Canned lentils are fine here.
You can never have too many potato recipes. A great way to serve potatoes is like one more great little black dress. You just need to have it. Serve these potatoes with anything or serve them alone but they are great with any sort of roast chicken, even take-out chicken. Invest in a great potato peeler to make short work of peeling the spuds.

This is a new spin on something old but still ambrosial - stewed rhubarb with extra perks. Rhubarb marries well with oranges (who also do their best to tint the rhubarb a deep rose colour) but any oranges you have on hand are just as perfect.
