Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese
(no ratings)

A healthful way to prepare traditional macaroni and cheese. Substitute half the cheese with pureed butternut squash; here, you can steam squash until tender or simmer squash in a simple mixture of garlic, milk, and broth. Combine squash with cheese and macaroni for a healthy take on an American favorite. I'll never make macaroni and cheese any other way!

Smoked Salmon Pâté (pronounced:
(no ratings)

This recipe comes from the Harrowsmith Fish & Seafood Cookbook (1985). I love fish and shellfish, and it can be extremely difficult to find a recipe book that offers easy, simple seafood recipes for such a wide variety of dishes. For anyone who cooks seafood regularly, this recipe book is a must. Plus, with its current age (1985), most copies can be found in Used, or Good condition on Amazon for 1-cent plus shipping and handling.

Creamy Saffron Bamboo Rice with Cardamom
(no ratings)

This recipe is prepared in the Spanish-style in which saffron, peas, and quality rice make a side dish filling enough for a main course. The episode of Spain . . . on the Road Again with Mario Batali and Gwyneth Paltrow published the recipe for Paella and suggests some other ways this dish could be made even more flavorful with prawns, tomatoes, and authentic Spanish paprika.

Shrimp Bisque by Denicola's Food
(no ratings)

The pre-packaged bisque requires only a few ingredients: water, canned corn, a little bit of cream and your choice of crawfish or shrimp. And, the process? Unbelievably easy. Simply bring each ingredient together in gradual steps, making sure not to boil the mixture, and a seafood bisque suddenly appears. What I can appreciate best about pre-packaged foods is the ease with which a recipe can be made and the lack of self-doubt when tasting the final product. Please note that the nutritional information for Denicola's Shrimp Bisque mix here is an educated guess.

Butternut Squash Lasagna with Blue Cheese and Mozzarella
(no ratings)

This recipe takes butternut squash from side dish to main course with just a few tweaks to a traditional lasagna recipe featuring blue cheese. Create two cheese sauces—one with ricotta and one with blue cheese, and roast butternut squash with an onion until tender. Combine into a layered lasagna for a new and attractive blend of flavors!

Steak Tenderizer

Corn Chowder
(no ratings)

This recipe is a variation of a previous chowder recipe using corn on Clearly Delicious. For the new version, I’ve included a little kick with the addition of chopped jalapeńos and increased the broth so it’s more soupy and less chunky like the first one. I’ve also revised cooking times and made the process shorter.

Chicken Tamale Pie
(no ratings)

This recipe has been adapted from the blog Pinch of Yum. Lindsay's take on the "deconstructed tamale" includes all of the same ingredients, just inside out. For this recipe, I've adjusted many of her ingredients--everything from proportions to the corn layer are a little bit different. Here, I've made the cornbread layer from scratch, but see Lindsay's for using Jiffy Mix as well as a couple of other shortcuts.

Stuffed Baked Potato with Egg
(no ratings)

This recipe is adapted from the blog Our Best Bites (http://www.ourbestbites.com/2012/02/an-idaho-sunrise-egg-stuffed-baked-potatoes/). Although the ingredients, proportions, and methods are a bit different, the concept is still the same as the original’s. Check out Our Best Bites for a cheese-filled version that serves four people, or read on here for a 2-person serving of stuffed baked potatoes with eggs that can be adapted any which way.

Buttery Scrambled Eggs
(no ratings)

A tried and true classic, this simple three-ingredient Scrambled Eggs recipe is the same one I've been using since I was a little girl. I can still remember being shown how to take a spatula and move it across the pan of eggs and create a "scramble." I show how in the video that you can find by following the link below.

Cranberry Salsa
(no ratings)

This recipe is adapted from Corinne Cook at The Advocate. After the White Christmas photo-shoot in November, we went back to Corinne’s for coffee and snacks. The first (and only thing) I ate was this Cranberry Salsa. Its perfect amounts of sweet, salty, and spicy made it a must this past holiday season.

Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower Au Gratin
(no ratings)

This recipe is adapted from the blog Running to the Kitchen (http://www.runningtothekitchen.com/2012/11/roasted-broccoli-cauliflower-parmesan-gratin/). I've made this recipe several times and, liking it so much, decided to double it because I just wanted more gratin. Here, I've used regular milk instead of almond and added a sweeter, homemade version of almond meal.

Mango Salsa
(no ratings)

Below is my take on a sweet and summery version of salsa made with mangos. Although Russ Turley’s variation suggests the addition of onions and a cucumber, I skipped this step, but found the resulting version to be truly delicious. Add cucumbers for a satisfying veggie crunch, or keep it simple with tomatoes and mangos.

Grilled Pork Loin Chops
(no ratings)

Skip brining your pork if you can help it. In the past, I've followed Bon Appétit's rule to brine before you pan fry or grill your pork chops (and I did so when reading up on this article earlier this spring). But, 4 out of 5 times, the pork ends up too salty no matter how much I cut back on the salt or follow the directions closely.

A chocolate indulgence not for the faint of heart inspired by Southern Living's recipe in their All-New Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook (2009). This cake is filled with a chocolate truffle filling, topped with a chocolate ganache, and decorated with hazelnut wafer cookies.
