Artichoke-red pepper flaky pastry pies

A recent trip to a Middle Eastern grocery store in my neighborhood has had me thinking about seasonings like dill and sumac — a deep maroon-colored spice with a sparkly, citrusy flavor. I sprinkled a bit of each into this lovely mix of marinated artichoke hearts and smokey red peppers, and the combination was dynamite — made even better when folded inside flaky, golden puff pastry.

Buffalo-Parmesan popcorn

Buffalo sauce is my new favorite. (How have I waited so long to become hooked?) The sauce recipe I include here tastes very authentic. I recommend using Frank’s Red Hot, if you can find it, and not another type of hot sauce, as the flavor is distinct. If you’d like to add an extra kick to the sauce, add 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper.

Lavash with oregano, cheese and sesame seeds

I love when restaurants serve soup with nice flat, crispy crackers like this lavash. It keeps you from filling up on a hunk of bread, and they offer a wonderful, salty bite in between slurps. Make this at home to really jazz up your own soup night.

Lemon-ricotta campenelle with toasted walnuts

This pasta is a great make-ahead meal for work lunches. I packed it as a lunch for a week straight: Each day I’d bring one large container of pasta and one small container of extra olive oil for drizzling. I mixed the walnuts in with the large original batch, so they softened over time, but I didn’t really mind it because they maintained lots of toasted flavor. If you prefer your walnuts to have some crunch, pack them separately.
