1. Coconut Oil Granola

There are some recipes I feel I could spend the rest of my life tweaking. I have been making this granola (referred to as toasted muesli in the past) for almost two years now, and just this past week, I made my favorite version to date.

2. Pumpkin Bread

Everyone and their mother has a recipe for pumpkin bread. This happens to be my mother’s recipe — not sure where it originates beyond her — and it is incredibly delicious.

3. Sweet Potato Quesadillas with Radish Salsa

Friends, these quesadillas have become one of my favorite things to eat. The filling, a mix of sautéed onions, grated sweet potatoes and spices (cumin, oregano, cayenne, and chili powder), comes together quickly with the help of a food processor’s shredder attachment and keeps well in the fridge, making for quick preparation at the dinner hour.

4. Easiest Best Ribs

The best ribs you’ve ever made? Let me qualify that. These are the only ones I know how to make, which make them the best I’ve ever made. That said, this recipe takes five minutes to prepare. Literally. Five minutes. But what emerges from the oven — a juice-filled package of falling-off-the-bone baby back ribs, perfectly crisped on the exterior — tastes like a day’s worth of work toiling over a coal-filled bbq pit.

5. Pasta Carbonara

True pasta carbonara is in fact light, containing no cream at all. And this recipe, from Everyday Food, calls for sautéed leeks, grated lemon zest and freshly squeezed lemon juice, flavors that make this carbonara preparation particularly fresh and light.
