Recipe News: Stewing away the winter blues: classic recipes with punch

"With the close of the holiday season and the cold of winter setting in, most of us will find ourselves home more, regrouping from some of the chaos. On nights when the weather keeps us in, it's nice to sit down to a cozy, warming stew.

Of course the beauty of stew, beside its delicious taste, falls in the fact you can make it ahead of time. Not only does this lighten your load, but also the taste becomes richer with age. Most stews can be stored, covered in the refrigerator for up to three days. A great idea might be to make it in the morning, double the recipe, cover it until the evening, then serve it for dinner and freeze the leftovers for another day. That was a mouthful. All kidding aside, stews are so easy to double or triple. One thing to keep in mind is that stews thickened with flour do not maintain their consistency after freezing, so you may want to separate the amount you wish to freeze before adding the flour mixture, then complete that step when reheating the frozen stew."

Includes recipes for:


  • Beef Burgundy Stew

  • Beth's Chicken Stew

Recipe News: Vegetarian recipes

"Vegetarian recipes from recently released cookbooks:

"Think Like a Chef," by Tom Colicchio (Potter, $37.50)

This dish can be made with cauliflower, endive, fennel or white asparagus instead of artichokes, but stick to white vegetables, because green will turn the dish an unpalatable shade of brown.


It is served as an appetizer, but the braised vegetables can be tossed into a salad or added to a pasta and beans recipe."

Includes recipe for:


  • Artichokes braised in olive oil and white wine

Recipe News: Fiesta time! Steal this crab empanadas recipe

"Empanadas are popular Latin fried stuffed pastries served as a main dish or as an appetizer. Although they are thought to have originated in Spain, several other Latin countries have their own versions stuffed with cheese, meat, or seafood. Rosa Mexicano in New York City has a great recipe for Empanadas de Jaiba (Crab Empanadas). These are also great as part of a “tapas” meal. Served as snacks/appetizers, empanadas can be shared by everyone."

Recipes: Macaroni and Lots of Cheese

Macaroni and cheese, for a lot of people, is a "comfort food." I tend to agree. But if your idea of Mac 'n' cheese is something created with a box from craft, or even if it isn't, the New York Times has a really interesting Dining article on it.

Like me, Ms. Spieler believes that macaroni and cheese, which is often served alongside fried chicken or barbecue, deserves pride of place as a main dish. "I love it so much that I want to focus on it," she said. A crisp green salad and a glass of wine turn mac and cheese into a meal, she added.
