Littleneck Clams with Carrot-Ginger Sauce

The smallest amount of butter added at the end of cooking gives the carrot-ginger sauce a silky texture. Serving suggestion: Serve the clams and the sauce over brown rice or linguine.

Indian-Spiced Buttermilk

A drink called <i>lhassi</i> is the East Indian version of a smoothie. It's usually made with soured milk or yogurt and can be sweet or savory, and often contains typically Indian spices, such as cumin and coriander.

Three-Pepper Rice

Three members of the pepper family-spicy dried red chili peppers, dried mild chili peppers (paprika), and fresh red bell peppers-add vitamin C and plenty of flavor to this colorful side dish.

Pear-Apple Crisp

While we've used a combination of apples and pears for this sweet, crunchy topped dessert, you may use 3 pounds of just pears or just apples.

Broccoli Chowder

This light chowder, flecked with the green of broccoli and the red of unpeeled new potatoes, is as delightful in appearance as it is in flavor.
