I confess that I'm a soup fanatic. I find a big bowl of good soup so warm and satisfying. I've been making this Butternut Squash & Apple Soup for decades. You can purée the squash and apples in a food processor but, if you have one, I prefer to use a food mill because the soup has so much more texture. Hope you love it too!!
The two secrets to light and fluffy scones are the same as for making flaky pastry – use very cold butter and don’t mix the butter into the dough completely. Now that autumn is literally “in the air” I’ve started making these Cranberry Orange Scones again – they’re sweet and buttery and everyone will rave! Who doesn’t love that?
Just as the weather turns chilly at night in East Hampton, I want something for dinner that's comforting and warm like my Roasted Ratatouille with Polenta. Who wouldn't love a big bowl of creamy Parmesan polenta piled high with caramelized roasted vegetables for dinner? I can think of one person in particular who will be very happy!
This Week's Question
When I want to buy a gift for someone who's a cook, I very often choose a great knife because it's a luxury that lasts for a lifetime. Another great gift would be a collection of wooden spoons, plastic spatulas, and stainless steel mixing spoons.
