Roasted Blue Potato Wedges with Fresh Herbs

This is a really simple recipe. It's a great, easy weeknight alternative to french fries. I tossed the potato wedges with some fresh, minced herbs, garlic, and olive oil, then baked 'em in the oven.

Cauliflower Gratin with Toasted Walnuts

Here's your proof, folks. I do eat my veggies. Granted, I prefer my veggies covered in cheese. (OK, I'll admit it: I'd probably eat a newspaper if you put enough cheese on it.)

These biscuits are a versatile companion for almost any cold-weather meal. Made with mashed sweet potato, they're moist and fragrant with ginger.

Spicy Guacamole

I'm totally guilty of having guacamole for dinner. Not the most well-balanced meal, I know, but I don't do it that often. (And hey, I do usually dip veggies and rice crackers in it, as well as chips!) When we're in a pinch and don't feel like cooking, chances are I'll grab a few avocados and go to town.
