Hazelnut & Chard Ravioli Salad


If you’re invited to a potluck this winter, consider bringing this. I first published the recipe over a decade ago, and still cook it regularly for a whole host of reasons. We’re talking about plump raviolis tossed with toasted hazelnuts, lemony flecks of chard, and deeply caramelized onions. You’ve got crunch from toasted hazelnuts, and brightness from a bit of

Goth Hummus


Let me start by saying, this was initially called Black Tahini Hummus, but once we started in on the goth hummus thing, it stuck. I wanted to post this early enough that you’ll have time to track down the ingredients In case you want to bring it to a Halloween party, which I highly recommend. The two ingredients that can
