Dec 11, 2020

Uncategorized

Canned Tomatoes When grocery shopping, I always walk down the canned vegetable aisle to see which canned tomatoes are on sale. Not only is my pantry filled with various canned tomatoes (Whole, Diced, Sauce, Stewed), I've had to store some in our laundry room cupboards because I literally ran out of room in the kitchen. They're one of my favorite quick go-to's for weeknight meals and have proven to be the most versatile in my laundry room. Er, I mean, pantry. Enjoy!   Shakshuka Serves 2-4 Lately,...

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Maple-thyme glaze FROM THE CHEF: I serve this dish at EVERY Thanksgiving & Christmas dinner at both, work, and home. I found the recipe in Cook’s Illustrated some years ago. What makes this recipe work so well is that the sweet potatoes are placed in a cold oven.
