Chile Rellenos

Chile Rellenos by Unorthodox Epicure

Chile Rellenos are traditionally cooked in a light, airy batter. While that is a delicious method, Panko provides more contrast in consistency — and seems to absorb less oil.

Chiles Rellenos

Chiles Rellenos by Kathleen is Cooking in Mexico

An iconic dish of Mexico -- roasted, peeled poblano chiles stuffed with cheese, dipped in an egg batter and fried. Served with a simple tomato sauce. Warmed, left-over chile rellenos are great as a sandwich in a toasted bun. Photos and more detailed instructions are on my blog, cookinginmexico.com

Perfect New York Style Pizza Dough

Perfect New York Style Pizza Dough by John Spottiswood

I have a friend, Pete Miller, who has become a pizza guru. He attended classes held by Tony Gemignani (pizza god), and has tried endless recipes at home. So I asked him for his ultimate pizza dough recipe and he gave me this. It's adapted from the book PIZZA by Diane Morgan and Tony Gemignani. The recipe in the book calls for…

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever by Mihir Shah

I love chile rellenos and this is a spectacular recipe - I use a little less cheese than you'll probably get in a restaurant, but it "feels" better that way. Feel free to add more cheese (or use different kinds of cheese). Enjoy!

Sicilian Eggplant & Ricotta Pasta

Sicilian Eggplant & Ricotta Pasta by John Spottiswood

This is yet another wonderful Italian recipe that I've adapted from Marcella Hazan's classic "Essentials of Italian Cooking". This one is good enough that my wife put a little smily face in the upper corner of the recipe and wrote "It's a keeper!". I think you'll feel the same way. We served this for friends with a wonderful citrus…

Homemade Manicotti

Homemade Manicotti by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is simple and absolutely delicious. It is a reasonable amount of work, so good to cook for a large party or family gathering. It is fun to prepare with a friend or relative, perhaps with a glass of wine in hand! I adapted this from a recipe cookoff I saw on the Food Network.

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs

Rich Sauce with White Eggplant & Herbs by Amos Miller

Eggplant has nothing to do with eggs - unless you dip and bread them. This sauce is a knockout! We grow 'Casper', an heirloom small, long white eggplant. It's mild in flavor and perfectly suited to thick, rich vegetable sauces. When cut into dime-to-quarter-sized disks, I have found Casper to be a perfect addition to other late…

Vegetable Lasagna

Vegetable Lasagna by Salad Foodie

Lasagna laced with garden vegetables makes a healthier pasta alternative to traditional lasagna. Don’t let the list of ingredients daunt you. I just consider it my afternoon therapy session. The veggies are cut in small pieces to layer better between noodles. As usual, this is way better the next day than the first (and even 2 or 3…
