FARGO — This week's Winter Fruit Salad showcases ingredients that are readily available in winter — like apples, oranges, fennel, walnuts, celery and fresh mint — to create a weekend brunch dish that is simple, elegant and delicious. The apples are the star of this salad, and Pink Lady is my top choice for this recipe. Pink Lady apples are sweet, juicy and perfectly tart, and with their wonderful pink hue and firm, crisp texture, they bring flavor, color and substance to this dish.
FARGO—After overindulging in Valentine's Day chocolates, it's time for me to head back to a healthier eating regimen. In addition to my love for chocolate, I also love a good savory snack, and finding one that is both flavorful and nutritious can be a challenge. These Moroccan Spice Roasted Chickpeas are a perfect alternative.
FARGO—Valentine's Day is tomorrow, and I'm continuing my theme of aphrodisiac food with Savory Sicilian Palmiers, a delicious and easy-to-make little appetizer filled with love-inspiring ingredients. A palmier (pronounced "pall-me-ay") is a sweet or savory French delight made from puff pastry that is shaped to resemble an elephant's ear or, in this case, a heart.
