Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place salmon fillets on a baking dish. Season the salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake salmon uncovered, for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through.
Combine pumpkin seeds, garlic, parsley, chives and vinegar in a food processor. Pulse to combine. While food processor is on, drizzle in the oil. Season with salt and pepper, mix and serve cold with salmon.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Make a few slits in the potatoes to let the air out during cooking. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until tender. When cool enough to handle, peel off the skin. Mash the insides with olive oil, maple syrup, salt and pepper.
• 1 pound kale, tough stems discarded and leaves cut into 1/2-inch-strips
Heat oil in a 12-inch saute pan over moderately high heat. Add red pepper flakes, shallots and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add kale and cook for 3-5 minutes, tossing regularly to wilt (adding 1-2 tablespoons of water helps the kale wilt). Reduce heat to moderate, and cook another 3-5 minutes. Season with salt an d pepper and serve immediately.
