Recipe News: Favorite cookbook recipes: Boneless Buffalo Wings from “Comfort Foods Made Healthy”

One of my favorite cookbooks of 2008 is EatingWell Comfort Foods Made Healthy: The Classic Makeover Cookbook, by Jessie Price and the editors of EatingWell magazine (Countryman Press, $24.95, 255 pages). Among the many appealing recipes is the Tofu Parmesan I posted a few months ago.

For another sampling from Comfort Foods Made Healthy, take a look at the recipes below. Buffalo wings (named for the city where they originated) are classic bar food, usually deep-fried and then tossed in a mixture of hot sauce and melted butter. The original recipe is literally dripping with fat.

  • BONELESS BUFFALO WINGS

  • SPICY BLUE CHEESE DIP

Recipe News: Christmas diner starters

OVER the next three Sundays, we'll show you how to make a magnificent Cook School Christmas dinner. The menu for this modern four-course festive feast is as follows: rillette of smoked, poached and hot-smoked salmon; white bean, bacon and chorizo soup; roast partridge with caramelised apples, chestnuts and cider; Helston pudding and Cook School custard. The only thing you really need to order is a couple of partridges from your butcher – the rest of the ingredients are all widely available. Partridges are also fairly easy to get hold of, but it's better to be safe than sorry at Christmas. We've usedADVERTISEMENT

estate-reared red-legged partridges. The wild birds are grey-legged and just as good, but are more difficult to find.

We begin this week with the two starters. Each would work perfectly well alone, but why not do both? It is Christmas, after all. First off is the rillette of smoked, poached and hot-smoked salmon. Rillette is a bit like pâté, but much lighter. For this, almost everything can be done in advance, with just a quick mix at the last minute.

Includes recipes for:


  • RILLETTE OF SMOKED, POACHED AND HOT-SMOKED SALMON

  • WHITE BEAN, BACON AND CHORIZO SOUP

Recipe News: Simple recipes make sweet success for young bakers

Holiday baking with children can be a sweet experience. Bath resident Beth Kaczmar, who was a finalist in a Mrs. Fields cookie-baking contest in 2007, said she grew up baking and now she shares that tradition with her own children.

“We do lots of cookie decorating, and we always make a gingerbread house every year,” Kaczmar said. “That’s a lot of fun. It usually takes a lot of time and patience.”

Those are two virtues the baker suggested adults have plenty of when it comes to having a little helper. She also said you’ve got to approach the task with a light heart.

Recipe News: Recipes for Diabetics

If you have diabetes, you may think that keeping your blood sugar in check means eliminating carbohydrates, such as bread, potatoes and pasta, from your diet. Not so, says dietitian Amy McArthur of Madison, Miss. (pop. 14,692). “It’s important for diabetics to eat foods from all of the food groups,” McArthur says. “Totally eliminating carbs can lead to the opposite problem—hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar.”

McArthur recommends eating the complex carbohydrates available in vegetables and dried beans, and low-fat proteins such as chicken, fish, and lean cuts of beef or pork. Unlike the simple carbohydrates in cakes or candies, which give your blood sugar a quick spike, complex carbohydrates break down more slowly and provide your body with a steady stream of energy.

  • Winter-Busting White Chili

  • Chicken Vegetable Soup

Recipe News: Recipe: Vanilla Sugar Cookies

The elusive hit of cardamom in these otherwise innocent-tasting sugar cookies gives them a compelling quality that keeps folks going back for more. We got the idea from reading the ingredients label on one of those pink frosted sugar cookies that show up so often at Seattle espresso stands. Minus the off-putting pink, they are downright delectable. The dough for these cookies can be shaped into logs then chilled and sliced, or it can be rolled out like other sugar cookies to be cut out into snowflake patterns. Be sure to pipe or spread on the vanilla frosting; these cookies really come to life when they're frosted.

Includes recipe for:


  • Vanilla Sugar Cookies

Recipe News: Vegetarian recipes for Thanksgiving dinner

People have different reasons for choosing vegetarian diets. Some love animals so much that eating meat is a moral issue for them. Some do it for health reasons. And still others do it for religious reasons.

Regardless of the reason why they choose to go meatless, vegetarians must make certain adjustments.

Take Thanksgiving, for instance. The holiday is steeped in the tradition of serving main meat dishes such as turkey, ham or prime rib roast.

So what's a vegetarian to do?

Recipe News: Easy Thanksgiving recipe: stuffing 'cupcakes'

Since our annual Mock Thanksgiving party was a bit spur of the moment this year, we decided to eschew a traditional sit-down meal in favor of bite-sized, hors d'oeuvres-style versions of Thanksgiving classics. Also, since I was working with a short timeline, I also chose to take the easy way out on each and every dish. For the stuffing, that meant a) dressed up Pepperidge Farm stuff, and b) foil cupcake liners.

Includes recipe for:


  • Stuffing "Cupcakes"
