Chipotle Salmon Tacos

Take a bite of these tacos and you too will realize how simple and fresh they are with some spice and a tangy cucumber slaw.

No-Bake Key Lime Tart

Skip the oven and make a refreshing key lime tart that is perfect to keep in the freezer and pull out on the warm days to come.


Ginger Chicken Congee

Make a comforting, almost creamy congee rice bowl with ginger and chicken the next time you are feeling under the weather.


Cherry and Hazelnut Thumbprints

Rustic, nutty hazelnut cookies with buckwheat flour have beautiful warm flavors and are filled with a sweet cherry jam. A comforting cookie perfect for an afternoon snack.

Glazed Pistachio Donuts

Ground pistachios and whole wheat flour combined with almond extract make these baked donuts a treat to be reckoned with, and we haven’t even made it to the dark chocolate glaze yet.
