Paella

Written by LWM STAFF. Posted in Chicken.

Paella

My paella is not traditionally Spanish. It is more like a Portuguese dish in the sense that it combines seafood and meat. But I’ve been making it for years and it is a family favorite—one that, I might add, I often serve to guests. Served with crusty bread, a simple green salad and some good white wine, it makes a perfect Friday night dinner with friends. Gluten-Free Friendly

Large skillet or paella pan
1 red bell pepper, roasted (see Tips, page 166 in book)
4 cups chicken stock
1/8 tsp saffron, crumbled
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL

Tagine of Chicken with Apricots

Tagine of Chicken with Apricots

Tagine is the name for a type of earthenware vessel as well as the stew-like dishes that are cooked in it. They are popular throughout North Africa and differ among locales. This one is my own invention, but the addition of harissa gives it a Tunisian spin. I love the juxtaposition of hot and sweet flavors. It is easy enough to make for a weeknight meal, but with a tiny bit of dressing up, it is also perfect for guests (see Tips, below). Gluten-Free Friendly

 

Dutch oven
2 tbsp olive oil
3 lbs bone-in skin-on chicken pieces, cut into serving-size pieces (breasts and large thighs halved)
2 onions, thinly sliced on the vertical

The Amazing uses of Vinegar

Vinegar is often touted as the magical liquid fit for every job. It can remove mold, soothe a rash or sunburn, and make your toilet bowl shine. The humble liquid can also help prevent the spread of infections like the flu when used properly. But the praised cleaner can’t do everything. Here are nine times to put down the bottle and look for another cleaning solution.

 CLEAN STONE COUNTERTOPS
Don’t ruin your beautiful countertops or stone tiles with vinegar! Vinegar is 5 percent acetic acid, and that’s enough to damage or etch your marble, granite, limestone, travertine, or concrete tiles. Vinegar can also remove the sealant on your countertops or tile and make it more prone to future stains. Instead, wash with a simple soap and water solution. Check with the manufacturer before using vinegar on man-made countertops like quartz.
