Spotlight Recipes: Cornbread & Dinner Rolls

Frame 110

Every year I have this internal debate: Do I make cornbread or rolls for Thanksgiving dinner? This year, I’m going with cornbread, but either of these recipes will make a scrumptious addition to your holiday table. Stick to smaller portions (mini-muffins, anyone?) to save room for the rest of the meal and keep calories in check.

Spotlight Recipe: Pasta Puttanesca

I got spoiled this summer, getting to come home and have access to fresh ingredients, a full kitchen and, of course, free time to cook. However, going back to school doesn’t mean we college students can’t still enjoy a good, healthy meal! Pasta is a good ol’ standby, but this year, ditch the buttered noodles or Ramen packets and try this easy dish – it’s sure to earn you an A from your roommates or friends. Make it in bulk you and eat for a few days. Capers, anchovy paste and arugula might not be usual pantry staples, but you shouldn’t have trouble finding them at the local supermarket.

Spotlight Recipes: Granita

Dig in to these delicious frozen treats that are reminiscent of Italian ices. Granita’s are harder in texture than sorbets and contain less sugar. To make a granita, cook up a simple sugar (combo of sugar and water) and add flavors such as coffee, mint, juice and wine along with fruit. Once the mixture has begun to freeze (it takes about 3 hours), scrape the ice crystals every so often as they start to form. Once frozen, scoop and serve.
