  1. Make room for lamb, different types of pork at the Easter table


    What says Christmas dinner more than a big hunk of ham on the dinner table, spiraled and glistening with a sweet glaze? And Thanksgiving? Turkey is, of c ourse, the star of the show, but I don't recall a T-Day dinner without ham on the table as well. On Easter Sunday, ham is once again a fixture. • But as the weather softens in the spring and we look to celebrate around the table, some of you might crave something new. You might be feeling, well, antiham. After all, there are other cuts of meat we can serve as the main attraction. And they can be much more affordable while still feeding a crowd. I'm suggesting different types of pork that allow you to get creative along with a lamb shoulder, also so flavorful. • I bet you won't miss the ham! …

  6. Versatile cruciferous cauliflower trending, popular in restaurants


    The family of cruciferous vegetables seems to be taking turns with its members, thrusting one or two into the spotlight at a time for its 15 minutes of fame. We've had Brussels sprouts every which way and kale found its way onto all our plates. • Now, cauliflower takes the stage. • Yes, I'm talking about the paler, less popular — though that's less true lately — cousin of broccoli. The variety most commonly found is a creamy white color, but more and more you'll find it in shades of purple, orange and bright green. Romanesco, a hybrid of broccoli and cauliflower, is especially striking with its fractal-like clusters and lime green color.  …

  7. Start soaking chickpeas: Garbanzos aren't just for hummus anymore
