There is one good reason—other than chicken and chilies—why I love the white chicken chili on the menu at the burrito palace in our neighborhood: sour cream.

Makes 6 servings Hands-on time: 15 minutes Total Preparation time: 40 minutes 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup) 3 garlic cloves, minced (about 1… more »

David recently e-mailed the Kitchen Shrink for help and said “I am making chicken soup for my picky eaters, and . . . . the soup has little chicken flavor and no yellow color. . . . how can I get more chicken flavor and a pleasing yellow color in my chicken soup? My biggest advice regarding flavor would be to strain out all the solids at the end and reduce the broth by about one-third. Take a look at… more »


Warm Cabbage with Bacon and Gorgonzola

This is a wonderful wintertime side dish and a great way to glorify the humble cabbage. It would go well with lean grilled sausages (lean because this is a relatively heavy side dish), pork chops, or my Blasted Chicken (Sara Moulton Cooks at Home…, page 66) 6 thick slices bacon, about 6 ounces 3/4 cup dry white wine 1 small shallot, minced 1 tablespoon drained bottled green peppercorns Kosher salt to taste 3/4 cup heavy cream 1 small more »

Cheese Sandwich Soufflé
Posted on October 2nd, 2013 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes « Uncategorized  |  Submit Comment
This is a recipe from my grandmother Ruth that I love for its simplicity. It is nothing more than a ham and cheese sandwich over which you pour some beaten eggs and milk, let it soak, and then bake. (I confess that I dressed it up a bit by adding the ham, and that my son Sam insists I should have added even more.) Any flavorful sliced melting cheese and any flavorful pork product—cooked bacon, pancetta, prosciutto, or good old-fashioned… more »
