3 tablespoons of olive oil (or a good vegetable oil)
1 tablespoon of ground cumin
A handful of chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
This is a good salad that you can prep a day-ahead and keep in the fridge. It is simple, yet flavorful and all the family will love it! Good as a side dish with chicken or fish and couscous. Dreams of North Africa…
This salad takes advantage of both multicolored beets and carrots to create one stunning salad platter. Get ahead by roasting the beets up to a week in advance. You can also shave the carrots a day ahead and refrigerate the ribbons in ice water.
This carrot cake is incredibly moist and tender, and fragrant with cinnamon and nutmeg. Speckled with raisins and nuts (or not, if you prefer yours plainer), the cake is topped with a rich, tangy-sweet cream cheese frosting. Get the recipe.
