Classic Green Goddess Dressing

A classic West Coast dressing and dip, it was one of the most popular dressing in the country up until Ranch took over in the late 80's. Flavored with plenty of herbs and anchovies, and highly seasoned, it lies somewhere between a classic Caesar and Ranch, with the best elements of both. More

Bread Baking: Yogurt and Honey Bread

I use yogurt in bread quite often but usually it's a small addition. This time, the liquid in the recipe is entirely yogurt. To counteract its tartness, I added a generous amount of honey. The resulting bread has a dark brown crust, a soft, moist interior and a small crumb. There's still a hint of tartness, followed by a mild sweetness. More

Bread Baking: Light Rye Burger Buns

Years ago, we used to go to a restaurant that was famous for its burgers. The buns had just a touch of rye in them. Not a lot—most people couldn't even figure out what was different about them. Just that they were different. But of course, bread geek that I was, I knew the secret. More

Chile Chicken Wings with Creamy Cucumbers

They're an advanced riff on classic spicy Buffalo wings with blue cheese and celery sticks—fried wings sauced with a sweet-hot chile glaze and cooled with a salad of crisp cucumbers in a minty yogurt sauce. The secret to the chile sauce is the unexpected addition of tahini—its nuttiness rounds out the rest of the Asian-inspired ingredients, giving the sauce a great thickness, perfect for coating. More

Mediterranean Flavors: Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Spinach and artichoke dip may have Mediterranean-inspired ingredients, but most of the recipes out there are American through-and-through. Frozen spinach? Thank you, Clarence Birdseye! Mayonnaise, cream cheese, and sour cream? You betcha. It appeals to our love of the hot and gooey, and I'll be the first to say it's great stuff. But I wanted to go a little lighter this time around.This version brings an all-American dip to its imagined Mediterranean roots with fresh spinach and garlic, olive oil and Greek yogurt. More

Mediterranean Flavors: Tzatziki

You only need to follow a recipe once or twice when making tzatziki before the process becomes almost automatic. Thick tangy yogurt; crisp, sweet cucumber; pungent garlic and dill; sunny lemon. The formula, a staging ground for countless dip platters and a condiment for the thousands of gyros dished up daily, is as familiar to us now as salsa and ketchup. And its preparation is about as intuitive—recipes matter less than solid ingredients and a willingness to dip a tasting finger along the way. More

Healthy & Delicious: Greek Yogurt Lemon Mousse

Light, airy, and fresh, this mousse made with Greek yogurt is perfect for warmer weather. Depending on your serving size, each portion falls between 100 and 135 calories, with virtually no fat, as well. Top it with a few berries, and it's a healthy dessert in every sense. Ultimately, I don't want (or need) to be cured of my lifelong M&M addiction. But it's desserts like these that make me feel a little better about it. More
