Roasted Sweet Plantains with Cream and Cinnamon

This is a wonderful recipe. I used canned crema (Nestle) because that's what was available, and it was amazing. Like plantain pudding.

Grilled Kale

I just wanted to share a little revelation I had while making dinner tonight. I was grilling burgers, and decided that my husband and I needed a little something green. I pulled out some kale, washed it, and threw the pieces (stem attached) onto the grill. I closed the lid for two or three minutes, and then I took it inside, cut the leaves from the stems with shears, and salted it. The kale was tender and the tips of the leaves were crisp and charred. It was absolutely fantastic!

I'm sure this has been done millions of times, but I was pretty proud of myself and just wanted to share how truly delicious it is.

Meat Loaf From 'Lighten Up, America!'

Of all the recipes in Allison Fishman Task's new cookbook, Lighten Up, America!, her healthier meatloaf was one of the most intriguing. She lightens the loaf in a few ways: first she uses ground sirloin mixed with veal and pork for a leaner meat blend, next she adds whole grain oats instead of bread to bulk out the meat, and then she stirs in a box of wilted baby spinach for color and extra nutrition.

Roasted Mushrooms with Rosemary and Garlic

Meaty crimini mushrooms are tossed in a simple dressing of red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, olive oil, minced garlic, and chopped rosemary, then placed into a hot oven until tender. As they roast, the spongy mushrooms not only absorb the sharp and herbaceous flavors of the dressing, but their own meaty mushroom flavor intensifies as well. More

Coca Cola Brownies

In a weird feat of cooking magic, you can actually bake brownies by substituting the wet ingredients (typically eggs and vegetable oil or butter) with a can of cola. The result is a dark, damp brownie with a fudgy yet springy crumb. More

Chocolate 'Crack'

This salty and sweet bark is super easy to make and more than mildly addictive. Most traditional recipes use semi-sweet chocolate chips, but if you have access to really good dark chocolate, it will take the recipe to the next level. More

Stained Glass Windows

If you aren't able to find multicolored marshmallows, you can use regular mini-marshmallows, or substitute, as I did, two-thirds of a bag of large red and green Christmas marshmallows (cut down to mini-marshmallow size) and 1/3 of a bag of regular mini-marshmallows. More
