This roast is based on a recipe from The Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking, edited by Charlotte Turgeon. Allow time for the beef to marinate 12 to 24 hours. Tip: I find it easy to peel tomatoes by filling a small deep saucepan with water, bring to a boil, remove from heat, and plunging a tomato held up with a fork into the water, slow-counting to ten; the skin comes off easily without cooking the tomato.
A lovely Cajun berry and wine compote, redolent with vanilla and the unexpected flavor of bay. The restaurant used mixed berries, but if you have an abundance of one kind, this would be a good way to show them off. This was once on the menu at Artesia Restaurant on the North Shore, New Orleans, although I'm not sure it is anymore. Simple and elegant.
Out of frustration at not finding a decent blackened tofu recipe I made one up, using several recipes online as examples. The trick in frying the tofu is to remove the excess moisture from the tofu first. I always add less thyme-it not being my favorite herb...add more if you wish. Oh, this might be a good time to state that this is very spicy! Since I've posted this recipe I have actually reduced the amount of pepper.
Serve this delicious tart for brunch, lunch, or a light supper. It can also be made using mini pastry shells for individual appetizers. For appetizers, adjust baking time to 20 minutes for or until browned and filling is set.
Whenever I refer to this jambalaya, I call it brown as opposed to the red Creole jambalaya. Prepare all the ingredients the night before, ready to throw it together. Once cooked it can be frozen for future use.
This is a great recipe based on one served at the Axe Mill tavern in East Douglas, Massachusetts as presented in the R.S.V.P. section of Bon Appetit's December 1996 magazine. I tried this at home, unfortunately, not yet at the restaurant! We do keep moving closer to it as I made it when I lived in California, and now I'm in Maine. Special note in the article: "Tasso, a spiced smoked Creole ham, and capocollo, a cured Italian sausage, are available at specialty foods stores."
An absolutely delicious and elegant dish that may be deemed gourmet with minimal effort. If substituting boneless chicken breast, it's best to pound to a thin and even thickness. Also, if using very thin fish fillets, decreasing baking time may be advised. This can be halved quite successfully. I was lucky enough to snag this from Southern Living yeeeeeears ago.
Delicious with or without beans. If made without beans, the chili can be served over elbow noodles for a delicious version of chili-mac. Don't forget to top with shredded cheese. What makes this chili different is the first step. The roux base gives the chili body and a saucy texture. I like that--body and sauciness!
