Well, okay, there’s a little bit more to carrots in this tasty fall soup. Ginger, and onion and garlic (oh my!). And the pesto that finishes it off is, quite literally, the top of the crop, which is to say, this is the perfect recipe for getting the fullest use out of those gorgeous bunches of carrots hanging out on the farmer stand.

Sloppy Sweet Potatoes

Sloppy Joes are a classic hot sandwich, but packed with meat and sodium and often served over low-nutrition bread, they’re not necessarily the best choice over all. This recipe updates the dish with lentils in place of meat, served up over sweet potatoes. We think you might just like it better than the dish that inspired it.

If you’ve got a little extra time to make your family dinner extra special, making your own pita bread is easy and a fun task to get the kids involved with.

Smoky Pork, FTW

Pork tenderloin is a fantastic choice for sandwiches. It’s cheaper per pound than your average deli meat, cooks up in a jiffy as roasts go, adapts itself beautifully to a huge range of flavors, and tastes great cold. And because you’re cooking it yourself, you can control the flavors and the amount of salt. It’s a win-win-win-win-win sandwich filling, and this is the perfect recipe to start playing with it.
