Often referred to as the Prophet Muhammad's favorite dish, this satisfying lamb and vegetable stew is served over thin, cracker-like bread called regag to soak up the rich juices (although we found store-bought, toasted roti to work just as well). To make the preparation easier, have your butcher cut the lamb into pieces. This recipe first appeared in SAVEUR Issue #140 along with Anissa Helou's story Breaking the Fast.

This is one of those dishes that?s really exciting to eat ? the flavors are really fragrant and light. Steamed fish and rice is always a winner, especially with Thai flavors. If you?ve got a good fishmonger, using other fish like red snapper, shrimp or squid to mix things up a bit is a great idea. It?s easy to put together and loads of fun to serve the tray at the table.

To give this creamy bean dip its fresh herbal flavor, Jim German, owner of the Jimgermanbar in Waitsburg, Washington, drizzles it with olive oil blended with lovage leaves. Since lovage isn't always easy to find, a combination of parsley and celery leaves can mimic its flavor.

German Schmalz, or Griebenschmalz is most often used as a bread spread, instead of butter. While it sounds strange to the uninitiated, a layer of Schmalz, sprinkled with salt, on top of fresh, German bread is heavenly. Schmalz is used layered over potted meats, stirred into cabbage dishes, and for browning onions. Often eaten with the cracklings left in, Schmalz can be flavored with apples and onions as well. Schmalz is better than bacon fat for many things because it does not add salt to a dish. Makes 1 - 2 cups

Frying whole spices to release their flavor?a technique known in many parts of India as baghar?is crucial to making this dish, as well as most of the Gujarati specialties.
This salad is a classic fall pairing of walnuts, blue cheese, and pears, but with a twist: spiced poached fruit. The poaching liquid is also used in the dressing, for twice the spiced flavor. Game plan: Though it’s fine to toss everything together, some ingredients in the salad may get lost in the bottom of the bowl, so we opt for serving it composed (a.k.a. arranged). What to buy: Piccante blue cheese is older than the sweeter dolce variety and has a washed rind that is thicker and drier. The cheese delivers a spicy flavor and strong aroma that complement the vinaigrette. This recipe was featured as part of our Fall Ingredients photo gallery.
Add additional moistness and flavor by replacing the wire roasting rack with a colorful rack of carrots and celery ribs. Tuck in a few sprigs of fresh herbs, some unpeeled whole shallots, and apple slices to enhance the flavor of the chicken.

These little bites of pastry filled with dulce de leche are a special treat. I like to make pastelitos de dulce de leche when I have leftover scraps of pastry dough - after rolling out a pie crust, for example. But they are so delicious you will want to make a whole batch of pastry dough dedicated only to these little cookies. It's difficult to keep the dulce de leche from leaking out during baking, but don't worry about it. When the leaking dulce de leche pools around the pastries in the oven, it gives them a delicious candy crunch on the bottom.
Simple twists make for big flavor in this recipe: a little spice in the roasted vegetables, lentil instead of chickpea hummus, and tangy pomegranate molasses to top everything off. What to buy: Pomegranate molasses is a sour, syrupy liquid that adds a tart note to this recipe. It can be found in Middle Eastern markets and in the Asian section of grocery stores. Whole-wheat lavash comes in a hard, crackerlike form or soft like a tortilla, which is what we use here. Look for lavash in the bread aisle of your grocery store. This recipe was featured as part of our Supercharge with Superfoods and The Most Delicious Sandwiches photo galleries.
These are the fluffiest, loveliest American-style pancakes ever. My girls ask me for them all the time and I get big brownie points whenever I make them. The recipe couldn?t be easier to remember and what?s brilliant about it is that it works like a charm every single time. You can have fun with it by switching up the fruit; strawberries, apples, blackberries, blueberries and bananas are all delicious in these pancakes so feel free to swap out the pears for any of those. The batter will keep as good as gold in the fridge for a day or two if you have any left over.
