After the excesses of the holidays and the inevitable healthy eating resolutions that follow in the New Year, I’m guessing I’m not the only one looking for some tasty salads. Unfortunately with spring still months away, trips down the produce aisle are less than inspiring.

I know it’s a bit cliche to start the year providing recipes for foods like smoothies, soups and salads, but I really do think it’s what my body wants right now. Cheese-smothered biscuits and Frito pie isn’t the thing my mind is gravitating towards–even though I do love those foods with all my heart.

Reimagine the California Bowl

California Bowl recipe

If you’re into food mythology you probably know the story about how the California Roll was invented in LA by a 1960′s era sushi chef trying to make due with the ingredients he had access to. Indeed, had that sushi chef lived in today’s world of daily flights ferrying fish rom Japan’s fish markets to American sushi joints, it’s possible that the California roll may have never been invented.

Bake Chocolate Glazed Doughnut Muffins

Chocolate Glazed Doughnut Muffins recipe

I love making homemade doughnuts. Actually, I don’t. Correction: I love eating homemade doughnuts. Making them is a whole other story. Homemade doughnuts are definitely a chore to whip up. There are two lengthy rises required, a big pot of oil for frying, which is always such a pain. And then there’s the dunking and garnishing, my favorite part, actually. When it comes to homemade doughnuts, there are about four more steps than I’d like to deal with.

Party Canapés: Roast Tomato Crostini

Roast Tomato Crostini recipe

Over the past few weeks, I’ve given you three different canapés to cover a diverse set of gatherings. This week, I wanted to finish the series off with a one-bite-wonder that should appeal to almost everyone. It’s a crisp crostini, slathered with a nutty herbal za’atar spread, and topped with a concentrated burst of sweet umami that lingers far after you’ve swallowed the bite and moved onto a sip of bubbly.

I strongly believe that the path to the best French toast begins with making an ice cream base (also known as créme anglaise). Sure, this is as decadent as can be, but it’s the holidays; a time when rest, relaxation and indulgences are welcomed. This French toast was designed for the pre-diet, juice cleanse and all that New Year’s mumbo-jumbo that we’ll soon be guilted into.

Bake Alfajores for a Peruvian Cookie

Alfajores recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

In Lima, Peru my family has owned a bakery for more than 30 years. My great great aunt, who was the head baker and holder of all our family’s recipes, would come visit our family in the United States about once a year. She’d always spend a day or two in the kitchen, her favorite place, showing us how to bake some of her favorite Peruvian treats. These cookies were always my absolute favorite.
