Avocado, tofu and spicy peanut rice spring rolls

Adding the sauce straight to the rice — rather than serving it on the side — make these spring rolls great for one-the-go action. It may take you a few tries to master the spring roll wrap, but it’s a really fun way to interact with your food. Just be sure to put the herbs down first so they can be showcased through the translucent rice paper.

Orange-scented granola

This granola offers just a hint of orange flavor and scent, but it’s just enough. I also add a few orange slices to my bowl for breakfast. It’s winter — go ahead and throw in some extra vitamin C anywhere you possibly can.

Crispy baked wings with buffalo sauce or ginger-soy glaze

Bill made these wings after he and I had been craving them for quite some time — and these were exactly what we wanted. They were crispy on the outside and perfectly moist inside. Bill nailed it. All I had to do was shoot and enjoy.

Winter cobb salad with a creamy citrus dressing

I love the creaminess of cobb salad dressings, and the citrus flavors in this version give it a wintery boost — in addition to the Christmas-style red and green of the pomegranate and Brussels. There are a lot of flavors and textures to this dish, but certainly not too many that the eater gets lost.

Nutty vanilla-cinnamon granola

Don’t have all the nuts or seeds I mention in the ingredients? Substitute away! But I do highly recommend using lots of seeds and nuts. Do a quick Google search to check out the nutritional facts of your ingredients — you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see that pepitas have lots of iron and how flaxseed is a good source of omega 3. Not a bad way to start the morning!

Honey mustard Brussels sprouts over pureed cauliflower

Everyone has heard me say at least 5,000 times that I love fall flavors. But really, what is more satisfying than harvest-time veggies with just the right seasoning and a great combination of textures? I’m also really getting down with sweet and spicy flavors on my veggies lately, like this spicy mustard and honey combination. Another great one? Honey and sriracha. (More on that later.)

I love, love, love tomato season. Lots of the vendors at my farmer's market offer heirloom tomatoes in a variety of colors, and this was the perfect way to showcase them. This might have been the best thing I've made this summer!

Grilled apricot with Greek yogurt and granola

Every time I fire up the grill, I feel the need to grill everything in my fridge. This time I grabbed some apricots and drew inspiration from a simple first course I had at Pomegranate Inn during my trip to Portland, Maine. There, they serve roasted peaches with homemade creme freche, granola and mint. My grilling method added lots more smoky flavor, and the Greek yogurt was a nice stand-in for the creme freche. Honey sweetened the deal.

Strawberry-banana used to be my favorite flavor yogurt when I was little. I remember one summer I was particularly into eating a little container of this yogurt — the kind that came in the break-off six packs — and dip one of those hard Italian breadsticks into it. So this is kind of, sort of like that. Only probably better and way less weird.

This open-face sandwich is my riff on the “Train to Tuscany” at Publican Quality Meats here in Chicago. I love Publican Quality and have been absolutely nuts about the place since my first visit a year ago. The store is one part market, one part butcher and one part cafe. I always leave so inspired and want to copy everything, from the sandwiches down to the table settings.
