Salmon Cakes

Broiling a nice piece of salmon is just about the fastest dinner possible, and one I rely on pretty often on busy weeknights. Sometimes I’ll dress it up with a mustard glaze or yogurt dill sauce, but nine times out … Continue reading

Spanakopita

Today’s recipe comes from Mollie Katzen’s Moosewood Cookbook, the vegetarian classic that was my first real cookbook. I still have my splattered old copy, with its friendly hand-lettered recipes and little line drawings of dancing broccoli, and I remember feeling … Continue reading
