Chicken Piccata

One of my "Four Quick Chicken Recipes" from "Sara Moulton Cooks at Home", this easy dish cooks in minutes.

Cream Biscuits

I developed this biscuit recipe while working in the "Gourmet" magazine test kitchen. It is so easy and versatile you can adapt it to many uses.

Oven-baked Chowder

I was born and bred in New York, but my family's roots are in New England, so you might say that chowder is in my blood.

Deep Hot Chocolate

Perfect for a cold winter afternoon pick-me-up or after dinner, spiked with a little liqueur. It's definitely Hot Chocolate season.

Serrano Ham and Manchego Roulade

The beauty of a roulade for both entertaining and family dinner is that you can make it a day ahead, chill it, and fill it just before serving.

Braised Short Ribs

The perfect candidate for entertaining, this is also a good choice for weeknight meals as it can be made a day before serving and freezes beautifully too.

Rustic Potato and Greens Pie

You can use chard, spinach, collards, mustard greens or a mixture of your favorites for this pie. For a quicker version use prepared pie crust.

Roasted Salmon with Hot Mustard Cracker Topping

A topping of sour cream and mustard with a sprinkle of wasabi rice crackers adds heat to this flavorful salmon.

Butterscotch Pudding Cake

I often tell people that this is my favorite dessert. The flavor combination reminds me of my favorite sundae when I was a child, coffee ice cream topped with hot butterscotch sauce.

Red Beans and Rice Soup

You could leave out the sausage and ham and substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stock for a lean vegetarian version. This is also the perfect opportunity to use leftover rice.

Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagne

Roasting the squash caramelizes it and concentrates its flavor in this delicious alternative to the classic red sauce lasagne.

Italian Onion Soup with a Poached Egg

This recipe was inspired by a soup I used to enjoy at Beppe, a restaurant that was in our neighborhood a few years ago.
