Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes Recipe. Lamb and Cabbage Stew with Fresh Shell Beans Recipe at Epicurious. Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings This North African-inspired stew is lighter than traditional stews because there's less meat and more vegetables. Shell beans add to the brightness and freshness of the dish. Start the stew a day in advance—the lamb needs to marinate overnight. Preparation Heat small skillet over medium-high heat.

Add coriander and caraway seeds to dry skillet; toast until aromatic and slightly darker in color, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. Finely grind in mortar with pestle or in spice mill. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in large pot over medium heat. Meanwhile, place fresh beans, if using, in small saucepan. Remove cinnamon stick and bay leaf from stew. Stir parsley into stew. Sweet Potato Parsnip Latkes with Feta and Leeks recipe from Food52. Author Notes: I was recently working on an article extolling the virtues of the classic potato latke, and wanted to contrast its perfect simplicity with some ridiculously nouveau-whatever variation. So I wrote that stripped-down basic recipes, with care paid to technique, can hold their own against the frou-frou trimmings of a latke with say... caramelized leeks, hashed parsnips, feta and sweet potatoes.

And then I looked at what I wrote. Challenge accepted! No, they're not my grandma's latkes. But oh my are they good. They're sweet yet earthy, studded with delicious briny and savory accents.

Aubergine parmigiana (aka melanzane alla parmigiana, or parmesan aubergine, for the sake of linguistic consistency) is that rare and glorious thing: Mediterranean stodge.

Despite the oft-repeated assumption that it is, as Jamie Oliver puts it, "a classic northern Italian recipe", parmigiana probably, as Jane Grigson observes in her masterful Vegetable Book, hails from the south, where it is popular fare in the rosticcerias, or roast-meat shops, of Naples and the surrounding area. True, it's almost certainly named for the northern cheese, but the aubergines, the tomatoes, and the mozzarella are all traditionally southern ingredients – perhaps the very fact the parmesan is singled out for mention suggests its exoticism. Aubergines As expected, I don't find any significant difference in the amount of oil they soak up, but I do think salting improves the flavour: the slightly saline taste the aubergines retain, even after rinsing, improves the dish immeasurably.

Cooking Breading Sauce. Pickled Beets For Canning) Recipe - - 177650. Sweet and Spicy Pickles Recipe : Emeril Lagasse. How to make fish stock. I have a confession to make -- I hate making stocks. When a recipe calls for chicken, beef, or veal stock, I open a can or a box. Unless of course, the stock is the star of the show and I am making chicken soup or tortellini in broth. Yes, yes -- I know that it's not hard. It's just boring and annoying. All that simmering, chilling, and degreasing, does not give me a sense of satisfaction. There is, however, one exception to my stock apathy. If I am in the mood for a fish soup, I ask Carl at the New Deal Fish Market to fillet a few little fish for me and to pack the fillets separately from heads and bones. Students often ask me if it stinks up the house.

Fish substitutions: branzino, sea bream, red snapper, stripped bass, cod, haddock, hake, sole, flounder, pollock, halibut, grouper, or pretty much any light colored fish (I mean the flesh color). For 6 cups of stock In a large stock pot, combine fish heads and bones, wine, water, carrot, onion and celery. P.S.

Baking. Breakfast Ideas. MEATY delights. Vegetarian. Soups! Endless Pesto Possibilities cooking with herbs and spices. By Sandra Bowens While working as a waitress at a fine dining establishment, one of my dinner guests asked what pesto was. I recited the ingredient list for her and said, "Then they whip it all up in a food processor and it's pesto. " Her dining partner looked at me with narrowed eyes. "You just took every bit of romance out of a traditional preparation. " He was right, I had. Pesto should really be made by the painstaking process of pounding all the ingredients together with a mortar and pestle. First the basics The traditional pesto, originating in Genoa, Italy, is composed of basil, pine nuts, garlic, cheese and olive oil pounded into a paste. Similar to pesto, the French prepare a “pistou.” Pesto (and pistou) are not cooked in any way so fresh, high quality ingredients are a must. Alternative ingredients Most pesto recipes will call for Parmesan cheese.

Now I contradict myself about the extra virgin olive oil being a must. Uses for pesto Or make your favorite bread recipe. You get the idea! Hands-On Granola « Miss Kathryn's. At Miss Kathryn’s summer day camp, this easy recipe is the daily morning snack. I have learned that when children participate in making something, they are less likely to announce that they “don’t like it” before even tasting it.

I spotted the attractive fruit at the supermarket, and its smooth skin and deep orange color tempted me to buy one. Unfortunately, I didn't know that the variety of persimmon I bought—hachiya—shouldn't be eaten until it is extremely ripe.

It tasted like industrial-strength cleaner. Since then, I've learned that fuyus, which are short and squat, are the variety to buy for eating fresh; pointy-bottomed hachiyas are better for baking. Fuyus have a pleasantly firm, mango-like flesh. The most similar flavor I can think of is papaya—sweet, but not overly so, with a hint of floral or spicy tones. Both fuyus and hachiyas are usually available in late fall and early winter. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Rainbow Chopped Salad Recipe at Epicurious. Petite Lasagnas « Can You Stay for Dinner?
