These fruity, oaty bars are inspired by Icelandic Hjónabandssæla (often translated as "happy marriage cake"), but perhaps closer to an American bar cookie in execution. They're hearty and rich, thanks to plenty of rolled oats and butter in the crust and crumb topping, with a flavorful layer of jam or fresh fruit in between. What kind? That's all up to you!
We love making shrimp cakes as a full dinner—they're a lot cheaper than crab cakes and work with a good variety of flavor combinations. Here we miniaturize them down to party-appetizer size, combine them with Thai seasonings, and serve with a tangy chili dip.
This chili is one of those set-it-and-forget it kind of dishes. Hearty and protein-rich, it's a great thing to come home to after a long day! Topped with avocado and scallions for a creamy and cool finish, this a great weeknight meal. Toggle navigation [LINK] OneGreenPlanet
This tenderloin roast makes a good company dinner. It is similar to Beef Bourguignon, but requires considerably less cooking time. Roasted shallots are added to the sauce along with sauteed bacon bits. The recipe serves 6 and can be doubled.
