Recipe News: Relax in the kitchen! Two fuss-free recipes

Escabeche is a distant Spanish cousin of the Latin American favorite, ceviche, only in this case the fish is slightly cooked rather than raw, and instead of lime juice, the tart note is provided by vinegar. To get a smoky flavor, Brigit simply chars a few tomatoes under the broiler, then whizzes them up with some fire-roasted peppers, and marinates with the wine-steamed shrimp for 8 hours or overnight (this way, the flavors have a chance to get really cozy). The resulting dish is restaurant-level complex, and all she has to do when guests arrive is transfer to some pretty glasses.

Includes recipes for:


  • Smoky shrimp escabeche

  • Cannellini bean, corn and frisée salad

Recipe News: Simple recipes for squash season

With the winter squash season peaking right now, it's time to stock up at greenmarkets and specialty stores. Beyond the supermarket's butternut lies a colorful world of hard-skinned gourds with names like hubbard, kabocha, delicata and and buttercup. These beauties will keep for a couple of weeks on your counter and can be pureed into soups, roasted, stuffed, sauteed and whipped with butter to a mashed potato-like richness. In a pie, their sunny golden flesh can replace the more typical pumpkin. As a base for cookies, muffins and cakes, squash lends vitamins and other nutrients in addition to a fruity sweetness. Though the varieties are many (the greenmarkets carry more than 25, says spokesperson Gabrielle Langholtz), choosing winter squash isn't as tricky as picking out produce in the summer. "Just look for winter squash that are hard as a rock," says chef instructor Russell Moss at the Art Institute of New York City. "You don't want any wrinkles on it." Cooking winter squash couldn't be easier. Simply cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, and place skin side up in a roasting pan. Pour a little water in or oil the pan – this helps prevent sticking. Then bake, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes or until the squash is soft when you prick it with a fork.

  • Squash-Stuffed Shells

  • Winter Squash Salad with Goat Cheese "Truffles"

Recipe News: Recipe for From-Scratch Pasta Dinner

When you're cooking to impress, sometimes simple and speedy are best. While laborious meals you slave over for a day or more certainly can have panache, they also can leave you stressed and exhausted by the time you actually sit down to enjoy them. Better is a meal that can come together in under an hour, such as this menu for homemade pasta with marinara and garlic bread. Add a bottle of red wine and some candles for the perfect, impressive and affordable date. Don't be intimidated by making pasta from scratch. If you can make Play-Doh snakes, you can make pasta. This recipe uses just semolina flour and water, and produces a hearty, rustic pasta common to southern Italy.
