The concept is simple. Sauté shrimp with shallots, garlic, lemon, and toss with spinach and linguine. Pretty straightforward, right?
Here's where it gets interesting. Instead of just squeezing some lemon juice over the pasta, or grating lemon zest, we are sautéing thin slices of lemon until they are well browned and caramelized. Those sautéed lemons slices get minced and added to everything else.
These apple carrot cupcakes are what happens when you can't decide between carrot cake and apple cake; they're the best of both, combined. They are a little sweeter than a muffin, but with all of the texture and flavor from apples, carrots, coconut, and pecans, and topped with cream cheese frosting.
Move over kale, cauliflower is now the "it girl" these days. There are just so many wonderful dishes you can make with it! This simple pasta with cauliflower, tomato, and Parmesan is a great example. I've adapted the recipe from a Sicilian recipe by Vincent Schiavelli that appeared years ago in Saveur.
It's outrageously good; I've been eating the leftovers for days, which just seem to get better as the flavors have more time to meld.
Is there anything more comforting than homemade chicken noodle soup? Perfect for cold weather, and especially good if you are fighting off a cold or flu. There are probably as many ways of making chicken noodle soup as there are moms who make it.
The key is the stock, homemade from bones. The iron rich gelatin from the bones is good for you, and one of the reasons why homemade chicken stock is so beneficial.
If you don't already have a cache of homemade chicken stock, the following is a recipe for making the entire soup from scratch, starting with a whole chicken, parted out. This recipe makes an especially clean tasting soup with a rich, clear broth, and plenty of noodles.
Years ago, the way most people I knew prepared cauliflower was to steam it or boil it, and serve it with a little butter. Then came the discovery of the magic that happens when you roast cauliflower. That simple, plain, sometimes soggy (if boiled) white vegetable that we ate because we were supposed to, now became something crunchy and nutty and crazy good that we fought over to finish.
Please welcome Hank as he shares a simple Italian classic, pasta e fagioli, or pasta and bean soup! ~Elise
Pasta e fagioli. I knew—and loved—this dish years before I knew how to spell it. Growing up in New Jersey, pasta e fagioli is a staple on every red sauce place's menu, along with spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, alfredo and cannolis.
Now here's a soup to brighten up a cold winter day! I looked to the flavors of Morocco for inspiration for this lemon chicken chickpea soup. The soup is seasoned with turmeric, cumin, and ginger—spices that not only warm the belly but give the soup its vibrant golden hue.
Please welcome Hank Shaw as he shares a Southern favorite, collard greens! ~Elise
I grew up with a healthy affection for sauteed greens: Bright, vibrant, spiked with garlic and red pepper and maybe a little citrus at the end. This was how greens were supposed to be served—alive, vigorous and most of all, emerald green. So you can imagine my shock when I first encountered Southern-style collard greens.
