One of my visitors, Louise Chowanski mentioned very special, unique sweet and tart coleslaw she finds in a local supermarket deli section. Since Louise is a B&B hostess with the mostess (she knows a great recipe when she sees one), she generously shared with me the basic ingredients and amounts and invited me to fiddle. I did. This is a sweet and tangy coleslaw, chock full of apples, toasted almonds, and a hint of maple syrup and orange. It is perfect with BBQ chicken or ribs or alongside grilled salmon. It is so unique it becomes an instant classic. You can use lite sour cream and mayonnaise.

These are delectable, deeply braised sweet potatoes. Ancho is a smoky, sweet chilli powder. Together with the maple syrup, the ancho infuses a remarkable flavor to these sweet potatoes. A perfect side anytime but especially nice at Thanksgiving.http://www.thespicehouse.com/spices/ancho-pepper to order quality ancho spice powder.

This is a luscious and bright tasting sweet kugel. A great counterpoint to pickled brisket or with roast turkey. It is also great cold, with cream, as a sweet side dish during the week or for a vegetarian Seder. A variation of a great recipe attributed to the Margareten Family.

A great side dish
A light touch

Nothing is as satisfying as the simple flavors of garden fresh cauliflower, a hefty offering of sweet paprika and some protein-packed chick peas. The trick of semi-pureeing the soup results in a soup that is staying and hearty but not a homogeneous glop. Ancho spice is a sweet pepper – not as hot as chilli and somewhat smoky and sweet (it's optional but it's terrific. I purchase mine at www.TheSpiceHouse.com)

There are many ways to make onion rings. This recipe offers the lightest, crispest rings imaginable. Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs and if you try them once, (Costco sells them or Asian food markets), you'll see why they are great for chicken filets, fish and particularly, onion rings. They are available in Asian food stores.  

This savory stuffing is too good to save for Passover which is when I usually serve it!  It is also perfect for the kosher table at Thansgiving. Use it in chicken or turkey or pat it in a casserole as a side dish. It freezes well baked or unbaked and is good enough to serve all year. As with my special Passover Potato Kugel, this can also be made as a kugel in a very well-greased Bundt pan or fluted baking dish for a prettier presentation, allowing you to cut it by the slice. 

The trouble with most bought salad dressings, low and no fat et al, is that they lack flavor. The second part is unless they are cream style, the vinaigrette separates. But making your own vinaigrette can get tiresome (if salads are a daily thing). What’s more – salad is low fat until you add the dressing and then calorie hell breaks out. Hence, this wondrous recipe. This recipe is brilliance – it is no or low fat, robust of flavor and has a magic ingredient that makes it hold together. I make it by the gallon.  

Hummus is what you’re used to but this North African spin on the chick pea, Middle Eastern approach to a bean spread, is dynamite. It uses fava beans (canned are fine). Touches of dried chili pepper, cumin, plenty of paprika an a touch of lemon makes this a deep brownish-red, spicier hummus. It’s a nice change from the tahini (sesame seed paste) laden ones. Use this on crackers, flatbreads, or alongside grilled chicken or fish. Or eat it plain, by the spoonful – it is smooth as silk, spicy, a little hot and just outstanding.
