Turkish Pomegranate-Glazed Lamb Chops and Carrots

Turkish Pomegranate-Glazed Lamb Chops and Carrots

Pomegranate molasses tells me it's time for a lamb indulgence.
Chicken and Parsnip Pulao

Chicken and Parsnip Pulao

Red rice, it turns out, is a phenomenally flavored hearty grain, and chicken skin is the new bacon. Who knew?!
Cheesy Mushroom, Rutabaga and Parsnip Parmentier

Cheesy Mushroom, Rutabaga and Parsnip Parmentier

Don't bother calling a "parmentier" a "French shepherd's pie." Rather, call it what it is: a pleasant (vegetarian) mix of stewed mushrooms atop a cheesy potato/veggie mash.
Parsnip, Sage and Mascarpone Risotto

Parsnip, Sage and Mascarpone Risotto

I need not be coerced into a risotto: the scent of the evaporating white wine in the pot is enthralling enough to make me happy to keep stirring.
Burnished Chicken Thighs with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Parsnips and Fresh Asparagus Soup with Parmesan Crisps

Burnished Chicken Thighs with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Parsnips and Fresh Asparagus Soup with Parmesan Crisps

How does a cook "burnish" a chicken thigh? I giggled -- curiously -- at the notion, when I saw this recipe.
Salmon, Fennel, Parsnip, and Coconut Stew

Salmon, Fennel, Parsnip, and Coconut Stew

Do you like coconut milk? I do. I'm pulled into its smooth sweetness: luxurious, exotic, yet obtainable (in cans!).

Pecan Dijon Chicken and Skillet-Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

The “Chicken Breast Quest,” for me, is the continuous lookout for an easy, flavorful costume -- one that turns an average, dull chicken breast into a tasty meal. The “Pecan Dijon Chicken,” from Allrecipes.com, was easy to put together, and provided moist chicken, covered with a thick, tangy, sweet, and nutty sauce. Hooray!

Grilled Turkey Breast and Honey Parsnips

I don’t cook turkey nearly as often as I do chicken, so the “Grilled Turkey Breast,” from Cooking with the Diabetic Chef, by Chris Smith, interested me. I did marinate my cutlets overnight, and this resulted in a decent sweet/tangy flavor. I did need to sprinkle salt on my cooked cutlets, however.
