One of our favorite platforms for sharing food, Pinterest holds a wealth of recipe inspiration from what to make for weeknight dinners to how to use the most trendy ingredients. Each month, we'll be showcasing our top five most popular recipes.

For November we have healthy Turmeric-Roasted Chicken, Thanksgiving-worthy Pumpkin Praline Pie, and more. See below, and check out our Pinterest page for more delicious ideas. 

Deconstructing a familiar classic is always fun. In this salad recipe the anchovy and Parmesan dressing becomes a rub for grilled chicken, and the crunch comes from a crisp panko crust instead of croutons.

Napa cabbage is an excellent choice for salads because it can absorb bold vinaigrettes without losing its crisp bite. We combined the cabbage with more crunch from sweet carrots, pungent red onion, and peppery daikon radish. 

Curcumin, the bright yellow polyphenol compound found in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects that promote weight loss, lower risk of heart disease, and improve blood sugar control. Here, we use it to add warm, earthy notes to roasted chicken.

Wheat bran and yogurt bump up the protein and fiber so you'll stay fueled with this healthy muffin recipe. Mashed banana adds moisture and sweetness without noticeable banana flavor, while browned butter lends nutty depth.

If you can’t decide between pecan and pumpkin pie, this dessert will give you a taste of both in one slice. A quick brown sugar–pecan streusel tops the pie after it bakes; the topping will set into a crunchy layer as the pie cools.
