187. Roasted Spiced Sweet Potatoes p.584

187. Roasted Spiced Sweet Potatoes p.584

The recipe
I served these sweet potatoes along with Lillie’s North Carolina Chopped Barbecue , and they were a lovely accompaniment. I should have though about the colour palate of our dinner before pairing sweet potatoes and barbecue, the plate was a little orange. You may eat with your eyes first, but the important bit is [...]

156. Dry-Cooked String Beans p.523

156. Dry-Cooked String Beans p.523

I couldn’t find a recipe for this one online.
I was in a frying mood the night I made these beans and the onion rings. The combination of a fried appetizer, and a fried main course was just a little too much. This stir fry was more than greasy enough all by itself.
In this dish trimmed [...]

138. Macaroni and Cheese p.223

138. Macaroni and Cheese p.223

The recipe
I haven’t eaten all that much macaroni and cheese since I graduated to shoes with laces, but most of the kids I knew, and the stoners they grew up to be, loved the stuff from the box. As a child, macaroni and cheese was just the brand neutral way of saying your mom was [...]

114. Foolproof Grilled Chicken p.363

114. Foolproof Grilled Chicken p.363

The recipe
The blurb before the recipe says that the secret to perfect grilled chicken is to brine it then toss it in a vinaigrette once it’s done. I’ve never really had a problem with my non-brined, non-dressed grilled chicken, but this version does have its charms. Brining makes things taste good by saturating them with [...]

39. Penne with Broccoli Rabe p.206

39. Penne with Broccoli Rabe p.206

I can’t find an Epicurious recipe for this one. If I had this might have been a 4.5 mushroom dish, but I can’t bear not to share this simple flavourful Tuesday night supper with the world. Here it is.
2 pounds broccoli rabe
1 pound penne
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 teaspoon red [...]

13. Toasted Walnut, Roasted Red Pepper, and Cumin Spread p.12

13. Toasted Walnut, Roasted Red Pepper, and Cumin Spread p.12

the recipe
This was an absolute winner. Easy, cheap, packed with flavour, unusual, brightly coloured, exploding with garlic, what’s not to love? I’ve made this twice and I’m sure a third time is not too far away. There are flavours pulling in all sorts of directions here, sweet roasted red peppers and molasses, earthy cumin and [...]
