  • cook's illustrated thai chicken soup (doubled for parties and to store)
    We made this soup for friends and family during the 2013 holiday season. Everyone loved it! Processing the lemongrass and shallots felt like the most time-consuming part, so next time we will try chopping it all up in a food processor. Adapted and adjusted from the base recipe published in the January-February 2007 issue of Cook's Illustrated. vegetable oillemongrassshallotscilantrofish saucechicken brothcoconut milkcoconut milksugarwhite mushroomsskinless chicken breastslime juiceThai red curry pastefish saucecilantro leavesserrano chilesscallionslimes
  • fast pork and tomatillo stew
    This is a really tasty, hearty, yet healthy way to enjoy pork tenderloin. In the first step, the pork browns beautifully. Once combined with the vegetables and beans, this one-pot meal quickly comes together. It is easy enough to pull off on a weeknight, but good enough for a comforting Sunday supper. I found this as a newspaper clipping amongst my mother-in-law's recipes. porkolive oilwatertomatillosjalapenooniongarliclime juicecilantrosaltblack beanscilantro sprigstortillascooked rice
  • jacques pepin's split pea soup with cracklings
    We were drawn to this recipe for several reasons. * We like split pea soup. * It makes use of leftover chicken skin. * Split peas are inexpensive. * It makes a big pot that can stretch over several meals or feed a party. * Leftovers freeze well. * It’s a Jaques Pepin recipe! We were pleased with the result and would definitely make it again the next time we have unused chicken skin. The crisped chicken skin kind of tastes like chicharon (deep-fried pork rind) in this dish.
