One little bite of gooey warm banana encased in crispy coating and you'll be hooked. Serve these nibbles in small dishes as a sweet finale to your meal, on top of vanilla ice cream, or alongside pound cake for a simple and delicious dessert. We like the way Grand Marnier lends a bit of orange essence to the dish, but feel free to substitute Cointreau or sweet sherry.

Sashimi is the Japanese way of saying uncooked. This simple preparation is seasoned with umami-packed miso (fermented soy bean paste) and soy sauce and gets a kick from wasabi (a root vegetable that tastes like hot mustard and horseradish ground together).

Broccolini is a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale and is sometimes (though less and less often) called baby broccoli.

It has a natural affinity for garlic and olive oil, and is most often served that way in Italian households, but we love this version's unexpected bold flavors, which...
