Sometimes we cook by the seat of our pants. Other times we like to follow directions, and that's when we turn to this, our treasury of recipes for every meal, course and drink of the day.

Mugolio Martini

on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Recipes, Drinks

The piney, herbaceousness of mugolio, or pine cone bud syrup, perfectly compliments gin in this crisp, woodsy twist on a classic martini. Serve ice cold as an aperitivo alongside a charcuterie platter before the meal.

Black Rice with Shrimp & Herb Vinaigrette

on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Salads & Dressings, Pasta & Grains, Main Course, Recipes

This is a stunningly beautiful dish — plump, pink shrimp and jet-black rice with flecks of green and orange. You'll want to take a picture (send us one if you do!), but there won't be much time before your guests devour it all.

Queso Fundido con Chorizo

on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Appetizers & Starters, Vegetable & Side Dishes, Recipes

This is not cheese dip as you may be thinking...it's better! This needs to be served immediately after it comes out of the oven, so make sure your guests are hungry.

Quinoa Pilaf

on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Vegetable & Side Dishes, Pasta & Grains, Recipes

Cooked like a pilaf, quinoa comes out moist and nutty. You can serve it as is, or serve it underneath saucy things and allow the quinoa to absorb even more flavor.

Roasted & Glazed Squash

on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Appetizers & Starters, Vegetable & Side Dishes, Recipes

This super simple recipe is adaptable to all types of vegetables - squash, fennel, carrots, rutabaga, etc.

Pan Con Tomate

Courtesy of Saveur Magazine. This quick and easy dish is often enjoyed for breakfast in Spain, but is equally delicious as a simple afternoon snack or top with a thin slice of Jamón Serrano for a light lunch.
