Stove Top Cinnamon Cranberry Sauce

It might be tempting to buy that perennial can of jellied cranberries—there might be one left over from Thanksgivings past in your cupboard right now—but there’s really no comparison between that and this handmade supper trimming. Just watching the magic as it jells might be enough. And don’t limit its uses to a turkey dinner or leftover sandwich; the tart character of cranberry sauce lends itself to experimentation. Spoon it over yogurt for a morning pick-me-up; mix it into a pound cake recipe; use it as a topping for burgers or waffles or add it to ketchup for a tangy dip for barbecue.

Simple Catalan Tomato Sauce for Fish

Barcelona is known for architecture, late-night entertainment, and food that is simple, fresh and very, very good. The Catalan diet depends on the staples of north-east Spain; olives, plump tomatoes, and some of the best olive oil in the world. This simple but very flavorful (and healthy) tomato sauce will complement any firm, white fish, adding a savory, tangy dimension to what might otherwise be a bland dish. Go the extra step and use the best, smooth-tasting olive oil you can find!

Quinoa and Roasted Squash with Peppers

The ancient grain called quinoa has a history that stretches back 3,000 years to South America, yet still elicits quizzical looks and odd pronunciations (it’s KEEN-wa). This relative of beets and spinach, high in protein and gluten-free, has a nutty, creamy consistency and makes for a great base for slow-roasted vegetables with their own smoky, rich flavors. This dish is a fine side dish for chicken or fish, or as a meat-free main course.
