Roasted sweet potatoes with chickpeas, dried cranberries and pesto

I love all of the opportunity a plain roasted sweet potato presents. The addition of pesto, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, quinoa and chickpeas make it magical.

Thai ginger-peanut deviled eggs

As embarrassing as it is to admit, I have yet to crack the code on hard-boiled eggs. I’m no good at making them. I undercook or overdo them every single time. That’s why I talked Joel (an eggspert) into hard-boiling all of my eggs for me — and why I’ll leave you to your Googling or your phone calls to Mom to seek out your own hard-boiling techniques. But the Thai ginger-peanut filling? That I can bring to the table.

Pork chops with olive tapenade

Joel’s fridge is usually well stocked with two things: pork chops and bags of salad greens. Not too shabby for a bachelor. I don’t tend to keep much meat in my kitchen, so it’s been a fun challenge for both of us to come up with new and interesting ways to serve the pork he has. (He even wowed me one night with a tangy Dijon-glazed pork chop sliced over a pretty salad. I’ll have to get his notes on that one and share it.) For this recipe, I tenderized and pan-fried the pork chops and served them with hefty spoonfuls of olive tapenade. Salad greens with roasted red peppers and balsamic dressing rounded out the plate.

Sweet potato balls with smoky cashew aioli

Aioli is a sauce traditionally made with olive, oil, lemon, garlic and egg yolks, but this one’s a little different in that it includes softened raw cashews instead of egg yolks. Plus, smoked paprika is like magic pixie dust. Don’t skimp and grab for regular paprika. Buy a little bottle of the smoked version, and I promise you won’t regret it. I’ll be looking for new ways to incorporate it, so stay tuned. My first experiment was to add it to hummus — delicious!

Caramel-almond popcorn

These recipes require the line about storing in a sealed container for up to a week, but who, really, has that much restraint?

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.

These meatballs were super tender and juicy, and the sauce was to die for. I served mine on a bed of big basil leaves. Overkill, perhaps. But I'm in summer withdrawal.
