Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

Ingredients:
  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (about 2 pounds), prepared in microwave
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 C fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 C Italian-style breadcrumbs
  • 1 C plus 3 Tbs. grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cans (28oz. Each) tomato puree
  • 2 large sprigs basil
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Make the meatballs: Brush a baking sheet with olive oil. Pulse the celery, carrot, onion, garlic and parsley in a food processor to make a paste. Transfer half of the vegetable paste to a bowl; add the ground beef, ground pork, eggs, breadcrumbs, 1 cup parmesan and 1 teaspoon salt and mix with your hands until just combined. Form into about 24 two-inch meatballs; transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Bake until firm but not cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Make the sauce: Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the remaining vegetable paste and cook, stirring occasionally, until it looks dry, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato puree; rinse each can with 1 cup water and add to the pot. Stir in the basil, oregano and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a simmer, then add the meatballs and simmer until the sauce thickens and the meatballs are cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the basil.

Use a fork to scrape the spaghetti squash flesh into strands; transfer to a large bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons grated parmesan. Season with salt. Divide the squash among bowls and top each with some meatballs, sauce and the remaining 1 tablespoon parmesan.

This recipe makes extra sauce and meatballs. Let cool completely, then freeze in a storage container for up to one month.

Tamales with Black Beans

Ingredients:
  • Black Bean Filling:
  • 2 C black beans, soaked overnight
  • 6 clove(s) garlic, peeled
  • ½ tsp. dried chili powder
  • 2 dried guajillo chilies
  • 2 dried chipotle chilies
  • 1/3 C dried epazote
  • 1 Tbs. salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 to 2 tomatillos, husk removed

  • Tamale Dough:
  • 4 C masa harina
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 C warm water
  • 15 corn husks, soaked in hot water to render pliable, or parchment paper
Instructions:

Make the filling: Place the black beans, garlic, chili powder, dried chilies, and epazote in a large pot and cover with fresh water by 2 inches. Bring to the boil and cook for one half hour. Add the 1 tablespoon salt and continue cooking until very tender. Drain. Transfer the solids to the work bowl of a food processor, add the tomatillos, and coarsely chop.


Make the tamale dough: Mix together the salt and masa harina in the bowl of a mixer. Slowly add the hot liquid, stirring to obtain a soft, moist dough. Beat the dough with the paddle attachment for five minutes to aerate the dough as much as possible. Sprinkle in the baking powder and beat 1 minute more. (Contemporary recipes contain lard, which results in a lighter product.)


Assemble the tamales: Place a husk flat on the counter horizontally in front of you. Spread about 2 tablespoons of tamale dough in a thin layer over the husk, leaving a border around the edges. Top with about 1 tablespoon bean filling. Pull up the husks on the right and left edges and nudge the dough so that it folds over the filling. Then do the same with the top and bottom edges of the husk, so that the dough encases the filling and forms a rectangular packet. Fold the right and left sides of the husk over the dough packet, then fold the bottom of the husk up and the top of the husk down. Keep folding to make a neat package. Repeat with remaining husks.


Place the tamales in a covered steamer and steam for 45 minutes, making sure that the steamer does not dry out. Serve immediately, or reheat by steaming.

Oven Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Ingredients:
  • 8 oz. elbow macaroni

  • SAUCE:
  • 2 Tbs. butter
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. flour
  • 1/2 small onion finely diced
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/4 tsp. mustard powder
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • 1-1/2 C milk, warmed in microwave for 30-45 seconds to get to room temperature
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese (alternately can be 6 oz cheddar and 2 oz of blue), grated
  • 2-1/2 oz. swiss cheese, grated

  • TOPPING:
  • 1 large slice sourdough bread ground to crumbs
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
Instructions:

Put a large pot of water on to boil and preheat the oven to 350

Sauce: In a large saucepan over medium-low heat melt the butter; once it stops foaming add the olive oil. Raise the heat to medium/medium-high and cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil and butter until softened and lightly browned. Stir in the mustard powder and pepper. Add the flour to the mixture and stir until completely combined to form a roux.

Let the roux cook for about 30-45 seconds stirring regularly to make sure the raw flour taste is cooked out. Slowly whisk in the milk in batches making sure to incorporate fully with each addition.

Once you have added the full 1-1/2 C of milk, allow the mixture to come to a simmer and check the consistency. It should just barely coat the back of a spoon. If thicker than that add more milk (slowly and incorporating each time) to thin it down.

Taste the sauce base and adjut seasoning as needed. Note that the cheeses will add quite a bit of salt so do not over-salt things.

Once the mixture is the right consistency add your cheese in batches, stirring each batch in fully before moving to the next one.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and reserve a bit of the pasta water to thin the sauce if needed. Add the pasta to the sauce, stirring to incorporate everything. If needed use some of the reserved pasta water to thin the mixture. Transfer the pasta and sauce to an 8x8 baking dish.

Topping: In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter until it stops foaming, then add the olive oil and bread crumbs. Keep the pan moving, stirring the bread crumbs until nicely browned then evenly spread the topping over the baking dish.

Bake for an hour until bubbly around the edges and browned on top; remove from the oven and let sit for 30 minutes to set up

Baked Honey-Mustard Chicken

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 C of grainy, course mustard
  • 1/4 C smooth Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 C honey
  • 3 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 - 4 small sprigs of fresh rosemary
Instructions:

In a small bowl, combine the mustards, honey, and 2 teaspoons of the olive oil.

In a sauté pan or cast iron skillet, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add the onion and sauté over medium heat until golden and tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for an additional 1 - 2 minutes, until fragrant.

Place the chicken tenderloins on top of the onion and garlic mixture, or if the pan you cooked the onion and garlic in is not oven safe, transfer the onion and garlic to an oven safe dish and add the chicken to it. Salt and pepper the tops of the chicken according to your personal preference.

Pour the honey mustard mixture on top of the chicken. Arrange the rosemary sprigs around the chicken in the pan.

Bake the chicken at 375 20 minutes or until done, occasionally basting the chicken with the sauce.


Notes: Chicken thighs also work well. I have also used pork chops, but I brown both sides of the chops first before baking.


Having a really busy or lazy day? Skip the onion and garlic steps completely. Just stir the honey, mustards, and all 3 tsp of olive oil together. Proceed with the rest of the recipe.

Stir shredded chicken, peas, and parsley into stew, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook on high until simmering.

FOR THE DUMPLINGS: Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in large bowl. Microwave milk and butter together until warm, about 1 minute, then whisk to melt butter. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until just incorporated and smooth.

Drop golf ball-size dumpling on top of simmering stew, leaving about 1/4-inch between each dumpling (you should have about 18). Cover and cook until dumplings have doubled in size, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve.
