Crispy Horseradish Gnocchi with Beet Greens, Goat Cheese and Pancetta (Gluten-Free)

I make ricotta gnocchi fairly frequently.  I make big batches of them and freeze them in single serving bags.  That way when I want a fast meal, I can boil the gnocchi and toss them with some greens and goat

Salmon Marinated in Spiced Yogurt (grilled or baked) with Rhubarb Chutney

I’ve been having a big craving for spicy, hot food.  We’ve been eating lots of spicy chickpea pancakes and bhel puri with very spicy green chutney.  This salmon dish does not have to be super hot, but if you use

Bengal Red Lentil Dal (to defeat seasonal allergies)
