Stuffed Peppers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook red bell peppers in the boiling water until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse peppers with cold water.

Stir eggs, 3 cups of spaghetti sauce, instant rice, onion, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper together in a bowl. Crumble ground beef into the mixture and stir until ground beef is thoroughly combined with sauce and rice mixture.

Stand peppers in a large baking dish and fill each pepper with beef mixture. Pour 2 cups spaghetti sauce over the peppers. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

Bake in the preheated oven until peppers are tender, the filling is set, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the middle of a pepper reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), 55 to 60 minutes. Uncover and top each pepper with 1 tablespoon Cheddar cheese.

Corn Salad corn
Fresh Corn Salad

I’ve been hooked on this corn salad lately. It goes so well as a side or topping to any of your favorite Mexican or even barbecue dishes and it’s fairly simple to put together. I’m a huge fan of cilantro and lime so I add a ton of it, … I usually just roughly tear it and add it and the cheese to the salad right before I serving.
Great for a potluck summer barbecue…or to add to your Cinco de Mayo menu! Enjoy!

Roast Poblano on grill or in 425 degree oven turning often until skin is charred. Place in a bowl with lid or covered in saran wrap for about 10 minutes (this helps with removing the skin). Once peppers have cooled, gently remove skin, seeds and stem and chop.

Cook corn in boiling water for about 5-8 minutes. Carefully cut kernels off stems and add to salad bowl. If you want a roasted corn, cook in water first, and then throw onto hot grill for a few minutes to char skin.
Combine corn, chopped roasted Poblano, chopped onion and jalapenos into a bowl. Add lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Right before serving add cilantro and queso fresco and toss gently to combine.

Corn Soup corn
Corn Soup with Piri Piri Yogurt

I like this soup just like this, but if you're looking to make more of a meal of it - try serving over a bit of hot farro or barley. Or alternately, topped with a poached egg and sprinkled with toasted, sliced almonds.

Start by bringing the water to a boil in a large pot. While it is heating use a knife to cut the kernels from the cobs of corn, reserving them in a bowl. Take the cobs and place them in the water. Let them simmer there into a stock/broth while you're prepping the rest of the ingredients, ideally 15-30 minutes. Remove the cobs from the broth when you're ready to use it.

In the meantime, heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and jalapenos, stir until they are well-coated, add a big pinch of salt, and sauté until the potatoes are cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. When the potatoes are nearly cooked, add the shallots and garlic.
Add this mixture, along with the corn kernels and the salt, to the corn broth. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes. I like this soup a bit chunky, so I remove about half of the soup while I puree the rest, then stir the reserves chunky portion back in - combining smooth/chunky in the end. Taste and adjust with more salt and pepper, to your liking.

Serve dolloped with a bit of plain yogurt, salted, and then swirled with a spoonful of piri piri paste. And a
sprinkling of fresh, chopped dill and crumbled feta cheese.

Garlic Fried Tomatoe Orecchiette tomatoes
Garlic Fried Tomatoe Orechiette

Garnish: For Serving - (Serves 4) basil leaves, top with more arugula, add splash of lemon juice, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with parmesan
Bring a large pot of moderately salted water to a boil.

In a large sauté pan on medium-high heat, add the olive oil and let heat until it’s shimmering in the pan. Add the sliced garlic and fry until the pieces begin to cook through and shrivel around the edges. Just before they are about to brown, act quick, and add sliced cherry tomatoes to the pan. – You want to hear the greatest sizzling sound of your life. Next, give mixture a toss, ensuring the hot garlic oil is adhering to and frying tomatoes. Next, add crushed red pepper flakes (optional) and let simmer on low for about 4-6 minutes.

In the meantime, once pot of salted water is at a full rolling boil, drop in the orecchiette pasta and cook for about 7-8 minutes until al dente. Remove pasta from water and drop into pan of tomatoes and garlic. On low to medium heat, toss until pasta has been evenly coated. Add pasta water to mixture, this will help the sauce emulsify and loosen up while adhering to the pasta. Next, add 1/2 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and stir.

Sauce should be truly emulsified with cheese addition. Take sauté pan off heat, and gently fold in 1/2 bunch of arugula, it should just slightly melt and wilt against pasta. Add lemon zest and stir. Taste for seasonings, adjusting salt, pepper, and zest. Portion out pasta on plates, ensuring equal parts tomato and orecchiette.

Garnish each dish with the remaining arugula and cheese, fresh basil leaves, add a splash of lemon juice over greens if desired, and finish with a light drizzle of olive oil.

Crostini sweet pepper
Goat Cheese and Roasted Pepper Crostini

Cut peppers in half, removing ribs and seeds. Place cut side down onto a baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Broil on high on the top rack of your oven, until peppers are blistered. Place into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to steam for about 15 minutes, then remove skins. Cut peppers into short, thin strips. Transfer strips to a medium bowl and toss with pepper and 2/3 cup olive oil. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours and up to 8.

Preheat oven to 325º. Brush baguette slices with oil on both sides and place on a baking sheet. Bake until dry and lightly toasted, about 15 minutes. Pierce half of garlic clove with a fork and rub the crostini while they’re still warm. Repeat with the remaining half clove when needed. This step can be performed one day ahead of time. If preparing in advance, allow baguette slices to cool before storing in an airtight container.

Jardinière
zucchinis
Jardinière

Vegetables and other low-acid foods are normally processed in a pressure canner. Here, the high vinegar content is a preservative, allowing use of a boiling water canner. Count on this mix to adorn relish trays and team up with cheese and meat.

In saucepan of boiling water, blanch onions for 30 seconds. Immerse in cold water; drain and peel. Set aside.

In saucepan, bring vinegar, sugar, salt, celery seeds, mustard seeds, peppercorns and bay leaves to boil; boil for 5 minutes.

Add beans, zucchini, cauliflower, carrots and onions; return to boil. Remove from heat. Discard bay leaves.

Into 2-cup (500 mL) canning jars, tightly pack vegetables to within 3/4 inch (2 cm) of rim. Pour in vinegar mixture, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) headspace.

Cover with prepared lids. Screw on bands until resistance is met; increase to fingertip tight. Boil in boiling water canner for 10 minutes.
