Paella

Written by LWM STAFF.

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

Written by LWM STAFF.

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

Original San Antonio Chili- The Chili Pepper Bible

The Chile Pepper Bible

If you are looking for the ground beef chili your mother made for Friday night dinner, this isn’t it. If instead you want to taste what amounts to a fabulous, highly spiced beef stew, then I highly recommend this chili. Leftovers reheat well.

Gluten-Free Friendly

Fresh Pus Pie

Written by Monster's Cookbook.

Halloween recipes, Fresh Pus Pie, Monsterly DelishFresh Pus Pie was a firm favorite on the menu of many cadaver cafes up until about a century ago. It was delicious served warm and oozing from the oven or fire pit. The best pus was extracted from diseased humans and it could be very rich so diners were advised to limit themselves to one small slice. A dramatic drop in human diseases that produced oozing boils led to its demise and this modern recipe took over in popularity.

Sufficient.—for 8 monster servings of pie
13 oz sweet shortcrust pastry
a little flour, for dusting
