Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Confession: I am a late bloomer when it comes to my love for pumpkin. My mom doesn’t really like pumpkin, so the only encounters that I had with it before adulthood were in the form of store-bought pumpkin pies in those crinkly aluminum tins topped with a dollop of partially frozen cool whip. Not exactly the tastiest introduction! Continue reading “Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread” » Source link [page_popup id=”1″]

Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Growing up we always had a choice of two kinds of salsa – a red tomato salsa which we made from scratch, and a salsa verde, or green salsa, which we got from a bottle (Victoria brand). As a kid I always thought that green salsa was made from green tomatoes, but actually it is made with a Mexican relative of a tomato, the naturally tart tomatillo (pronounced “toe-mah-TEE-yo”), which looks like a little green tomato covered with a husk.

Maple-Glazed Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Pears

In New England, where I live, there are so many grand maple trees that the syrup goes into everything. You often find it in pots of baked beans instead of molasses, as well as in all kinds of cakes, pies, and other sweet desserts. Maple syrup also makes its way into simple weeknight dishes like this skillet chicken recipe, where it turns into a glaze.

Turkey Meatballs with Tomatoes and Basil

We used to have a cat named Jack. Jack was a sly, slow-moving, long-haired Persian that would rarely come when called, but if you put out a small bowl of vanilla ice cream, out of nowhere he would magically appear. This is sort of how my dad is with meatballs. All I have to do is say, “Dad, I’m making meatballs,” and he’s half-way out the door on the way over. He loves these turkey meatballs.

Cauliflower Pasta Bake

This is a mac and cheese for grown-ups. It is not the ooey-gooey comfort food of your childhood, but something a little more refined that just so happens to be cheesy and crispy. For this baked pasta recipe, sweet, roasted cauliflower and onions are paired with salty Parmesan and buttery Gouda and topped with a crispy Ritz cracker crust. It can be served as a simple vegetarian dinner or as a side dish for roast chicken or grilled steak. Continue reading “Cauliflower Pasta Bake” » Source link [page_popup id=”1″]

S’mores Cookies

I had a single unopened sleeve of graham crackers, several assorted packages of chocolate, and half a bag of somewhat stale mini marshmallows, all unearthed from the pantry on a rainy late-summer/early-fall afternoon. What’s a gal to do but make chocolate and marshmallow S’mores Cookies? Continue reading “S’mores Cookies” » Source link [page_popup id=”1″]
