Earlier this week, I appeared on Good Morning America Health with the lovely Sarah Copeland from Food Network Kitchens. We tag-teamed a segment on saving money by cooking at home with our “recessipes.”

Giada Halibut

Depending on the groundhog you ask, today may or may not indicate warmer weather to come.

Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter, but Staten Island Chuck, who resides much closer to Food Network’s offices, put the kibosh on continuing cold.

We’re going with the local rodent’s choice and planning our spring menus now. The first seasonal recipes to try this year include: Read more

Gobble Encore

by in View All Posts, December 17th, 2008

I know Thanksgiving 2008 is way over, but I can’t stop dreaming of the three new side dishes I cooked. They were so fabulous that I’m planning on making them again for Christmas.

I grew up in San Antonio and had two cousins from Austin visiting me in NYC this year, so I chose a menu that reflected the foods we loved on Turkey Day when we were kids in South Texas. When it came to the turkey itself, I admit I cheated. The big bird I bought from a local BBQ joint tasted just like my dad’s version, only no one had to get up at 4am to start smoking it over mesquite in the back yard. It paired perfectly with the two types of BBQ sauce I forced my cousins to smuggle from home, and it freed up my tiny Manhattan oven.

The sides were the real winners, though. I chose these three easy but truly tasty recipes.

Fennel Orange Cranberry Sauce from Dave Lieberman
I opted to grind my fennel seeds a bit with a mortar and pestle, but I wished I hadn’t. The rush of fennel when you bite into a seed is part of this recipe’s appeal, and the flavor works so well with turkey.

Twice Baked Potatoes from the FN Test Kitchens
I ran the cooked and scooped-out potatoes through my ricer to make the filling extra fluffy and smooth. Then I snuck in some extra butter and sour cream since my taters were jumbo-sized. I also trashed the tops and served them open-faced like my grandma always did.

Creamed Collard Greens from The Neelys
Follow the instructions and let the cream reduce by half. I got impatient/hungry, so the dish was a little too runny. Mea culpa.

Remember: We’ve got your back (and your sides) here at FN.com.
