Right now, and presumably for another month or so, New York City is experiencing perfect weather. It's chilly early in the mornings and at night, but still warm and often sunny in the afternoons. It's a good time for light sweaters and cardigans but there isn't yet need for a jacket. I don't know about you (and feel free to share in the form of a comment) but this type of weather makes me painfully nostalgic; and hungry for warm, rustic foods. Like this stew. Although the cooking time is approximately two hours, they are mostly inactive, so you don't have to . . .
The recipe for these meatballs is loosely based on Alton Brown's recipe - watch the video. It's quite educational. But the sauce was all my idea. This is one of those recipes with lots of ingredients and several steps so I recommend reserving it for a weekend dinner. (Yield: 18 balls/about 6 serving) Ingredients: 1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey 1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese 1 egg, beaten 1/2 c bread crumbs, divided 1 tsp dried parsley 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper Sauce: 4 red bell peppers 2 tbsp olive oil, divided 1 tbsp butter 1 yellow . . .
I went over to my friend Michelle's house the other night to unwind after a long work day and we decided on the perfect activity - we made tiramisu. I'm not a fan of tiramisu, or creamy desserts in general, but Michelle adores the stuff and she had all the ingredients ready to go. Neither of us had made it before so we followed this recipe. Michelle's awesome photos of the process: We didn't have whipping cream so we whipped egg whites instead. Mascarpone mixture + egg whites Dipping ladyfingers into espresso Then in Kahlua Dusting with cocoa powder And dark . . .
This breakfast is creamy, sweet, delicious and beautiful. It works wonders on significant others. Doesn't it just implore to be eaten in bed? I assure you the other in question will be impressed. And you might even get some. You're welcome. "T.J's Cream Cheese and Strawberry-Stuffed French Toast" from the Deen Family Cookbook, 2009 (Yield: 1 luscious breakfast) Ingredients: 2 slices white Wonderbread 1 heaping tbsp cream cheese 4-5 strawberries, sliced 1 egg 2 tbsp milk 1 tsp butter Maple syrup or powdered sugar for the grand . . .
The idea for this salad came from a wrap I ordered for lunch one day - a bad wrap. It consisted of poorly seasoned grilled chicken pieces and a medley of vegetables with a peanut dressing on the side. The wrap was overstuffed with vegetables and when I tried to pick it up and eat it, it fell apart. I gave up on its false identity as a wrap and consumed it with a knife and fork like a salad. Although the wrap was technically a failure, I loved how those vegetables tasted with that dressing. I decided to recreate that wrap, as a salad, without chicken. The salad was not . . .
This roulade is perfection: it has a crispy, buttery crust (my tried and true recipe), and a gooey, savory filling. If you are going to try any one of my recipes, do yourself the favor and make this roulade! (Yield: 12 pieces) Pastry: 2 c all-purpose flour 1 tsp salt 6 oz butter ½ c ice water Filling: 1 tbsp butter 3 c chopped spinach 1 egg, beaten 1 c farmer cheese 1/2 tsp salt + 1/2 tsp black pepper Start by making pastry: cut butter into small cubes and place into freezer for about 10 minutes.

I found this recipe on Smitten Kitchen and I just knew I had to make these. I've been meaning to make Linzer bars for a while but was waiting for the perfect recipe to come along and now it finally has. However, I also added a sliced peach to the blueberries. These crumbly, buttery, fruity treats are super-easy to make... The dry ingredients are combined first... Then the butter is cut in and the egg is added. Half the dough is then pressed into a pan, fruit goes over that and the rest of the dough is crumbled over the fruit. Into the oven for 45 minutes and . . .
