Tingling pineapple-ginger soda with cayenne

Waylaid with a nasty sore throat and stuffy sinuses? This drink is dynamite. Pineapple is the only known source of bromelain, an enzyme used to treat inflammation, especially of the nose and sinuses.

And the lemon is the perfect zing for awakening and soothing sinuses. Drink a glass of the pineapple mixture straight, or add club soda for a less potent sipper.

As you can see, I also made a pan without the gingerbread spices, but topped with pomegranate arils.

Lentil curry with rice

I love curry pretty much any time of year, but it always seems particularly spectacular when it start getting cold out. Even when it comes to picking a restaurant, I tend to lean toward Indian restaurants or other cuisines that include lots of spices in the fall and winter.

Simple baked salmon with raspberry-pepper dressed greens

Maybe this is less of a recipe and more of an idea. Every so often life gets a little extra busy and you really want to enjoy something spectacular — without it taking any more of your time. I found this gorgeous bag of greens with edible flowers at the farmer’s market, then we picked up some fresh salmon — and that was that. It was totally satisfying, felt completely indulgent and couldn’t have been simpler.

Strawberry-lemon and ginger-peach striped popsicles

Ginger-peach and strawberry-lemon popsicles would be delicious served separately, but striping them together makes them even more delicious — like chocolate-vanilla twist ice cream, only better.
