Inspired by the upcoming National Garlic Day (April 19th), we decided that this French classic was in order. Do not be afraid of the amount of garlic in this recipe, when garlic slow cooks it loses its bite and becomes the aromatic, flavorful star of the show.
One of the things I love about traditional boiled dinner is the leftovers. Homemade Corned Beef Hash is one of my all-time favorite treats. I often serve it for dinner with poached eggs because it is so filling.
This classic vegetarian chili is accented with smoky, sweet, roasted red peppers and topped with a vibrant avocado salsa. Cook this on a workday—it’ll be just fine if you’re late getting home.
According to my son, Evan, “These oatmeal, chocolate chip cookies are tasty and crunchy and perfect with milk.”
This is such a pretty (and healthy) stew. Cut the potatoes, carrots, zucchini and sausage roughly the same size for the most attractive presentation. No worries if you don’t have a crowd to feed—leftover soup makes a wonderful brown bag lunch.
All props for this recipe go to my dear friend, Dyan who gave me the idea for this classic combo many moons ago when we were writing our first book. Tender chicken simmers with tomatoes, oregano and cumin. The finished dish is garnished with fresh herbs, feta and olives. The rice can be mixed into the sauced chicken or served on the side. YUM!
Happy New Year!
We adore stuffed cabbage, but when time is short, this is our go-to recipe. It’s got everything we like about stuffed cabbage, without the fuss.
Do you still have apples hanging out in your fridge from apple season? We can’t think of a better way to use up those apples than sweet, thick apple butter. Try it stirred into hot cereal, serve it alongside pork chops, or make apple pie sundaes by spooning it over vanilla ice cream.
With most of our neighborhood trees looking quite bare, winter seems much more imminent. A steaming, satisfying bowl of chowder will certainly warm spirits and bellies alike.
