An oval 3- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker works best for this recipe because of the shape of the meat. If you don't own an oval slow cooker, cut the meat in half to fit the one you have. Spoon this fork-tender, saucy beef over mashed potatoes.
Raspberry jam, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, and a couple of seasonings create a rich sauce for the chicken. This recipe is low in fat, easy to whip together, and most of the ingredients can be found in your pantry. If you don't have raspberry jam, red currant, apple, or seedless blackberry jam can stand in for great results. Sautéed green beans make a great side dish for this sweet, spicy onion chicken.
We love these thick, satisfying cookies as humble as peanut butter cookies but not as crumbly. Dried cranberries provide a slightly tart counterpoint to the macadamia nuts' richness. The dough is somewhat sticky; chilling it briefly makes handling easier.
These caramelized apples are meant to be slightly sweet, not overpowering and sugary, so they’re versatile in nature. Spicy-tart and thoroughly warming, these apples are a fabulous addition to crepes or homemade ice cream. They’re equally at home as an unexpected garnish for mildly spicy grilled chicken or a tropical menu from Martinique. Cook’s note: For a delicious “cheater” dessert, fill a store-bought tart shell with these apples. With the homemade goodness of the apples and apple cider reduction sauce, nobody will guess your secret!
This easy recipe for Hungarian goat cheese spread or korozott comes from Elizabeth Ledniczky of Florida. There are many variations but this is one her mother, Marika Magyarits, used to make. It's similar to liptauer cheese spread except the latter is made with sheep cheese. Both are made with sweet Hungarian paprika, which gives them a pink color. Korozott and liptauer are delicious spread on toasted or untoasted bread or in place of mayo in a sandwich, served as a raw vegetable dipper, and a great appetizer in scooped-out, boiled red potatoes. Makes about 1 cup Hungarian Goat Cheese Spread or Korozott

If you are the type of person who goes into a supermarket and buys prepacked chicken or duck breasts, thighs or drumsticks, then I really want to start you thinking along the lines of buying a whole chicken or duck. It?s far better to buy the whole bird and then remove the breasts or legs. I?ve also noticed that duck legs aren?t as popular, because the packs of duck legs never seem to shift from the supermarket shelves like the chicken ones do ? which is strange, because all they need is some slow cooking and you?ll get thin crispy skin and beautiful melt-in-your-mouth meat. Check out this recipe, which works a real treat.

Chicken noodle soup is a truly universal recipe, with almost every country having at least one, if not many variations on the theme.

A popular and classic primo of the Amalfi Coast, this dish can be found on menus throughout the region in countless different versions. This recipe is an adaptation from Ristorante Lo Scoglio in Marina del Cantone. One of the waiters gave me the method after our epic lunch for la Signora’s birthday. Small world. I knew him from when I worked at Don Alfonso. He grew up with Alfonso. This camaraderie led to the secret in the recipe to be revealed—the seemingly overcooked zucchini in the method is interesting and makes for very flavorful oil in which to cook the clams.
