Quick Loaded Potato Soup | This lighter version of the beloved soup gives you more flavor, less glop, and full hearty satisfaction. With one simple extra step, the standard mashed potato process leads to a creamy soup adorned with all the great baked potato toppings. If you like the idea of some chunks of potato, mash coarsely; for a smoother soup, mash more completely. For the best texture, stick with russet potatoes (aka baking potatoes); starchier varieties won’t yield as creamy a result.

Pan-Seared Salmon with Pear and Walnut Spinach Salad | Wild salmon has less saturated fat, fewer calories, and 5 to 10 times fewer contaminants and persistent organic pollutants (POPs) than farm-raised (in early studies, POPs have been linked to impaired brain development, type 2 diabetes, and obesity). There's no need to give up all farmed salmon, and eating some is always better than none. Aim to eat at least 1 to 2 servings of omega-3-rich fatty fish weekly.

Apple Galette with Vanilla Yogurt Drizzle | Rustic is gorgeous—that’s never been more true than with this fall apple tart. We save on saturated fat and make the whole-grain crust even tenderer by swapping in low-fat yogurt for some of the butter. Make the crust a day ahead and refrigerate, or a couple weeks ahead and freeze (just remember to thaw completely before rolling). Cutting the apple crosswise for a “star” shape in the center of each slice adds a special touch, but any slice will…

Spiced Apple-Cranberry Sauce | A trio of warm spices takes this holiday staple out of candy-sweet territory and into the world of robust holiday condiments. The sauce is equally delicious with roast turkey and roast pork, an easy way to top off your holiday protein for the rest of the season. Apples counter the tartness of the cranberries and help the sauce thicken. No fine dice on the apples here; the rustic chunky look of the two fruits is what makes the sauce beautiful and enticing.

Grand Marnier Cranberry Sauce | What makes this sauce extraordinary isn’t the orange liqueur, though it rounds out the tart and sweet flavors beautifully. It’s the whole fresh cranberries reserved before cooking and stirred in just before serving. You might think the fresh berries would be too tart without simmering—we did too—but the result is simply outstanding: jammy sauce punctuated by pops of tart, juicy berries. If you prefer not to use alcohol, you can substitute fresh orange juice.

Sweet Potato Casserole with Crunchy Oat Topping | This classic casserole straddles the line between side and dessert (indeed, we’ve enjoyed the leftovers both ways). We dial down the sugar to steer the dish back to savory territory, and add a crunchy oat and nut topper for texture. A final drizzle of maple syrup just before serving gives the casserole a lovely sheen. While we call for a ricer in our master mashed potatoes, a potato masher is perfectly acceptable here since the spuds will be
