This is a great recipe to make with kids, as it?s very simple and good fun putting the top circle over the chocolate and squashing the edges gently together to stop the chocolate from escaping when it cooks. This is quite a dry mixture, but don?t worry, the cookies are meant to look a bit cracked and rustic, so you can?t really go wrong! If you eat these when they have just been cooked the chocolate is quite runny, and if you eat them cold they are nice and gooey. You?ll need two cutters, one about four inches and the other about 2 inches.
Prep: 10 minutes.
A two-level fire ensures crisp skin and moist, evenly cooked meat. To create two levels of heat in a charcoal grill, spread some of the hot coals in a thin layer over half of the grill and pile the remaining coals on the other side. Cook the chicken uncovered when using a charcoal grill; covering it makes it cook faster and more likely to char.

Carbonara is a classic pasta sauce made with cream, bacon and Parmesan and is absolutely delicious. Try to buy the best ingredients you can, as that?s what really helps to make this dish amazing. I?m using a flowering variety of thyme but normal thyme is fine to use. When it comes to the type of pasta, you can serve carbonara with spaghetti or linguine, but I?ve been told by Italian mammas (who I don?t argue with!) that penne is the original, so that?s what I?m using in this recipe. Before you start cooking, it?s important to get yourself a very large pan, or use a high-sided roasting tray so you can give the pasta a good toss.
I developed this recipe for pear custard pie when I had two beautiful Korean pears and half a package of thawed filo dough staring me in the face. I thought a sweet riff on Serbian burek would be just the ticket, and it was. Here's a larger photo of pear custard pie Makes 6 to 8 servings of Pear Custard Pie

What could be better than a chocolate cake for dessert? How about a chocolate cake that is served warm with a river of chocolate running from it. Using dark chocolate makes this recipe for Molten Lava Cakes better than any you can get in a restaurant.
This tomato sauce recipe is by far the best tomato sauce recipe I have ever made. It may be a little more fiddly than some but the results are worth it; a thick chunky deep-flavored sauce. The richness of the finished sauce makes it perfect for freezing and the sauce makes a perfect base for soups (by simply adding a good stock), or a fabulous sauce for pasta, grilled meats and fish. The sauce when sieved thoroughly gives a silky tomato coulis. If you don't have super-fresh tomatoes then use canned, they work very well.
Prepare the Enchilada Sauce a few days ahead of time, and refrigerate.

Notes: Michael Recchiuti, a San Francisco chocolate visionary, prefers to make these moist brownies with a distinct chocolate such as L'Harmonie, a 64 percent dark chocolate blend available from E. Guittard consumer sales (800/468-2462). Serve wedges or squares topped with lightly sweetened, softly whipped cream, chopped fresh mint, and fresh raspberries; or crown pieces with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Truffles typically have the added richness of cream and butter. These ingredients help stabilize chocolate, which tends to scorch, separate, or become grainy if not heated carefully. We add corn syrup and evaporated milk for smooth, creamy confections.
This dish is always a big hit. It’s great rolled into a burrito, but you can also serve it on its own topped with scallions, sour cream, and tortilla chips. What to buy: You can find Aleppo pepper at most gourmet grocery stores or online at the Spice House. If you’re having a hard time locating it, use ancho chile powder instead. Game plan: Chile verde was destined to be a party dish because you can make it way ahead of the festivities and just warm it over medium-low heat when you are ready to eat. This recipe was featured as part of both our Build Your Own Burrito Bar story and our Chile Pepper Recipes photo gallery.
I wish I?d known about this dish earlier in my life, because it?s the sort of brilliant everyday dish I absolutely love. Essentially it?s a hash. Everyone I spoke to in Sweden seemed to have their preferred method of making theirs; this is mine. The one thing that seems to be consistent is that it usually involves using leftover meat and potatoes. The idea is to chop and slice all the ingredients into roughly 1?2cm cubes and add them to the pan as you go. So you're prepping and frying until everything is beautifully cooked.
This recipe for rum and pecan spice cake is adapted from one by chef John Folse of Chef John Folse & Co. in Gonzales, La. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Rural Life Museum in Baton Rouge, La. This recipe spans ethnicities and would feel at home in any Eastern European kitchen. If you like a stronger rum flavor, add the rum to the syrup once it's cooled slightly instead of simmering it with the water and sugar. Makes 10-12 servings of Rum and Pecan Spice Cake

Flavors of fall—sage and figs—pair up with tangy goat cheese for an elegant appetizer that’s a perfect pairing for a glass of bubbly. What to buy: Fig jam can be purchased at high-end grocery stores. Quince jam, a.k.a. membrillo, would also be delicious here. Game plan: The toasts can be made up to a day ahead and stored at room temperature in an airtight container. The sage can also be prepared a day ahead, loosely wrapped in a paper towel, and stored in an airtight container. This recipe was featured as part of our Thanksgiving for Six menu.

Layer grilled chicken, feta cheese, and an olive- and tomato-topping for these fantastic dinner sandwiches. The tomato mixture also tastes wonderful when served on slices of toasted baguette as an appetizer.
This is like having a breakfast dish of pasta and it is absolutely delicious! If you are a fan of sausages and eggs you?ll love this combination. Not only does it look impressive but it?s so quick to make. There?s a subtle line between having a smooth, silky egg sauce and scrambled eggs ? both will taste delicious but smooth and silky is far more desirable.
