Lamb Chops and Salad with Lemon Mustard Dressing - Home & Family

Directions for Lamb Chops

1. Coat both sides of the lamb chops with olive oil so the rub really adheres to the chops.
2. After you’ve thoroughly coated both sides, do the same with the rub.
3. Place the lamb chops atop a baking sheet and place in the oven for a broil. For medium rare, broil for 4 minutes on each side, flipping them halfway through that way both sides get a nice broil goin’ and voila!

Salmon Salad Nicoise - Home & Family

Directions for Salmon

1. Buy 1 lb of salmon with the skin.
2. Bring it home, rinse and run clean hands along the salmon looking for spikey bones. Remove the bones using tweezers.
3. Preheat the oven to 500˚F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the salmon on it.
4. Make the marinade below. Pour very generously over the salmon, rubbing it in slightly. Coat it as thickly as possible.
5. Once the oven is ready, pop the salmon in for 13-15 minutes or until just flakey. Allow to cool. Remove the skin, and break into big chunks to set on the platter.

Directions for Salmon Marinade

1. Combine all ingredients and spread over the salmon.
* Ghee is clarified butter (which means the milk solids in the butter have been boiled off) often used in Indian cuisine that can be found at a health food store. Without the milk solids, it has a higher cooking temperature than butter, and it won’t burn at the high temperature of this recipe.

Directions for Tangy Apricot Dressing

1. Combine all ingredients except the olive oil in a small bowl.
2. Slowly stream in the olive oil with a whisk until combined.
3. Serve this alongside the platter for people to help themselves. I like to serve it in a little creamer pitcher, for a cute presentation.
* Look for one that is 100% fruit to avoid added sugar.
Directions for Hard Boiled Eggs

1. Place 4 eggs in a pot with water to generously cover.

2. Bring to a boil.

3. Cover. Remove from heat and set aside for 13 minutes using a timer.

4. At 13 minutes, pour off the hot water and replace with cold water.

5. Once eggs are slightly cool, peel under cool running water (makes them easier to peel). Slice in half and place on platter.

Directions for Thinly Shaved Spring Onions

*If you have a Japanese Mandolin, you will get really thin slices. They are only about $15, and they are a great tool to have. If you don’t have one, just slice as thin as possible. Either way – stay focused while slicing!

Directions for a Dozen Small Red Potatoes and 1/2 LB Green Beans

1. Boil scrubbed potatoes in very salty water until al dente.

2. Add green beans. Cook an additional 4 minutes or until green beans are al dente. Drain. Rinse in very cold water until both potatoes & beans are cool.

3. Toss potatoes in EVOO & S/P when done. Serve green beans as is. Add both items to the platter.

Directions for 1 Pint Grape Tomatoes

Rinse, drain well and add to the platter. Easy enough!

Directions for Caper Berries and Small Capers

Sprinkle around the finished platter. If caper berries can’t be found, olives may be substituted.

Directions for Mixed Greens

Rinse, if necessary. Dry well, and place in a big wooden bowl served alongside the platter.

Directions for Bread and Butter

Use Manna Bread, a sprouted bread that can be found at health food stores, authentic sourdough bread. Whichever, just slice it nicely, place neatly on a plate with a small bowl of cubed butter and serve with the platter.

4. Serve on a large platter with the rémoulade.

Variation: Fried Okra with Cajun Remoulade

When you talk about the South, you have to talk about okra. Many may be worried by the ooey-gooeyness or the natural “stickiness,” but I promise you that this southern classic will become a family favorite. Following the recipe, simply replace the tomatoes with about 2 pounds of okra, sliced into ½-inch pieces.

Fried Chicken and Waffles with Homemade Sriracha - Home & Family



  1. To make the chicken, take a heavy-duty zip-top bag and cut open one side of it. Place the chicken pieces in the bag, leaving it slightly open so as not to create an air bubble. Using a small frying pan or rolling pin, pound into even 1⁄4-inch (6-mm) thick pieces. Place the pounded chicken in a medium-size bowl, sprinkle with the seasoned salt and pour in the buttermilk. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge for 4 hours and up to overnight.
  2. To make the breading, in a large bowl, combine the flour, seasoned salt and bread crumbs, and stir until well mixed.
  3. When ready to fry, heat the oil in a heavy skillet until 360°F (182°C) on a frying thermometer. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk, but do not shake off the excess buttermilk. Place the marinated chicken into the breading mix and press the breading into the chicken. Press both sides in the breading and shake off the excess. Carefully place the chicken in the oil and fry 3 to 5 minutes, until cooked through or the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C) in the thickest part of each piece. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel–lined plate.
  4. To serve, place the fried chicken on top of the cooked waffles. Top with butter, maple syrup and Sriracha.

Chef Tip: You can substitute chicken thighs or even whole pieces of chicken in the recipe. You can double the breading and use it to fry up one whole fried chicken cut into 8 pieces.


  1. Preheat a waffle iron to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a large bowl using a hand mixer or a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, beat the eggs until fluffy. Add the flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla and beat just until smooth. Transfer the batter to a 4-cup (960-ml) measuring cup to make it easy to pour.
  3. Spray the preheated waffle iron with pan spray. Pour the batter onto the hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve hot.


  1. Place the peppers, garlic, both sugars and salt in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Transfer the mixture to a clean container, cover and let sit at room temperature. A mason jar with a loose-fitting lid or a clean bowl with plastic wrap will work. Fermentation should begin in about 2 days. When bubbles begin to form, stir your “mash” once or twice a day to combine and help settle. Continue until the mixture stops bubbling, 6 to 8 days.
  2. Transfer the mash to a blender, add the vinegar and purée until very smooth. Strain the sauce through a fine sieve. Add the xanthan gum and purée again until smooth and thick. Store your sauce in squeeze bottles in the fridge for up to 3 months.

Chef Tip: If you love really spicy Sriracha, reverse the proportions of the serrano and jalapeños. And if you think that’s not going to be hot enough for you, substitute the chiles for Scotch bonnets and Thai chiles. I’m not responsible for the burning of your mouth or bottom if you go this route!

  • Kosher salt
  • 3 cups shelled English peas
  • 2 cups shelled fava beans
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano, plus more for serving
  • 4 large eggs
  • All-purpose flour, as needed
  • 1 recipe Chef Anne’s All-Purpose Pasta Dough, rolled for ravioli (see below)
  • Semolina flour, as needed
  • ½ pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 to 1½ cups chicken stock

Ingredients for Chef Anne's All-Purpose Pasta Dough

  • 1 pound all-purpose flour
  • 4 whole eggs, plus 1 yolk
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water or more if needed

Spring Pea and Ricotta Ravioli with Fava Beans - Home & Family

Directions to Ravioli

1. Bring a medium pot of well-salted water to boil and set up a bowl of well-salted ice water. Drop the peas in the boiling water, let the water return to a boil, and cook the peas for 2 more minutes. Scoop the peas out of the water and plunge them immediately into the ice water. When the peas are cool, remove them from the ice water and reserve. Repeat this process with the fava beans. When the favas are cool, peel off the tough outer layer and reserve the beans.
2. In a food processor, pulse the peas to make a coarse paste. In a large bowl, combine the pea paste, ricotta, Parmigiano, and eggs; mix well, season with salt, and taste to make sure it’s delicious.
3. To assemble the ravioli, dust a clean work surface lightly with flour and lay out sheets of pasta about 12 inches long; use a pastry brush to brush the bottom half of the pasta sheets lightly with water. Fill a disposable pastry bag (or a zip-top bag with one corner cut out) with the pea mixture and pipe 1-inch balls of filling onto the pasta about 1½ inches apart. Fold the top half of the pasta sheet over the filling so the top edge meets the bottom edge. Use your index fingers to press around the filling and seal the edges shut. Use a fluted ring cutter or fluted pasta roller to cut out the ravioli; put them on a baking sheet dusted with semolina.
4. Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil.
5. Bring a large saucepan to medium heat and add the butter and 1 cup of the chicken stock; season with salt. When the butter has melted, add the fava beans.
6. Add the ravioli to the boiling water and cook for 4 to 5 minutes; scoop out the ravioli and add them to the sauce. Cook the ravioli in the sauce for a couple of minutes, shaking the pan frequently, until the sauce begins to thicken and cling to the pasta. If the sauce seems too thick, add a bit more stock. Put five ravioli on each serving plate, spoon a little extra sauce and some fava beans over each, and sprinkle with Parm to serve.

Directions for Pasta Dough

1. Mound the flour on a clean dry work surface. Make a hole (this is also called a well) in the center of the flour pile that is about 8 inches wide (bigger is definitely better here). Crack all of the eggs and the yolk into the hole and the olive oil, salt and water.
2. Using a fork beat the eggs together with the olive oil, water and salt. Using the fork, begin to incorporate the flour into the egg mixture; be careful not to break the sides of the well or the egg mixture will run all over your board and you will have a big mess! Also, don’t worry about the lumps. When enough flour has been incorporated into the egg mixture that it will not run all over the place when the sides of the well are broken, begin to use your hands to really get everything well combined. If the mixture is tight and dry, wet your hands and begin kneading with wet hands. When the mixture has really come together to a homogeneous mixture, THEN you can start kneading.
3. When kneading it is VERY important to put your body weight into it, get on top of the dough to really stretch it and not to tear the dough. Using the heels of your palms, roll the dough to create a very smooth, supple dough. When done the dough should love VERY smooth and feel almost velvety. Kneading will usually take from 8 to 10 minutes for an experienced kneader and 10 to 15 for an inexperienced kneader. Put your body weight into it, you need to knead! This is where the perfect, toothsome texture of your pasta is formed. Get in there and have fun!
4. When the pasta has been kneaded to the perfect consistency, wrap it in plastic and let rest for at least 1 hour. If using immediately do not refrigerate.
5. Roll and cut the pasta into desired shape.

Benne Seed Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches - Home & Family

Start to finish: 45 minutes, plus cooling and chilling
Makes 30 cookies, or 15 ice cream sandwiches
Recipe Courtesy “Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street” –


1. Heat the oven to 350°F with racks in the upper- and lower-middle positions. Line 2 baking sheets with kitchen parchment.
2. In a 12-inch skillet over medium, combine both sesame seeds and toast, stirring frequently, until the white seeds are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool completely; wipe out but do not wash the skillet.
3. Set the empty skillet over medium and melt the butter. Cook, swirling the pan frequently, until the milk solids at the bottom are browned and the butter has a nutty aroma, 1 to 3 minutes. Immediately pour into a medium heatproof bowl and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.
4. To the butter, whisk in the tahini, sugar and salt; the sugar will not fully dissolve. Whisk in the egg. Using a rubber spatula, stir in the sesame seeds. Add the flour mixture and stir until combined.
5. Form the dough into thirty 1-inch balls (1 rounded tablespoon each), rolling the dough between the palms of your hands. Arrange 15 balls on each prepared baking sheet, evenly spacing them. Using the palm of your hand, flatten each into a disc about ¼ inch thick.
6. Bake until light golden brown at the edges, 12 to 14 minutes, switching and rotating the baking sheets halfway through. Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks and cool completely.
7. Line both baking sheets with foil and stack on top of each other. Transfer cookies to the top baking sheet, placing half of them flat side up. Chill in freezer 15 minutes. Remove top baking sheet with cookies, leaving second sheet in freezer. Scoop ¼ cup ice cream into a ball shape and release onto the flat side of a cookie. Place a second cookie flat side down on top of ice cream. Press gently to spread the ice cream to the edges. Repeat with remaining cookies. Place them onto the baking sheet in the freezer and chill until solid, about 2 hours. If keeping overnight, wrap baking sheet in plastic.

TIP: Pair these cookie sandwiches with ginger, dulce de leche, vanilla ice cream, or mango sorbet’’

TIP: Don't toast the black and white sesame seeds separately. Since the black sesame seeds won't darken in color as they cook, the color of the white seeds will help you gauge doneness. As you toast, stir frequently and pay attention, as they burn easily.

Salmon Cakes - Home & Family


1. First make the dressing: Simply place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk well to combine.

2. Place the salmon, sesame oil, sesame seeds, egg, ginger, chili, spring onions, red onion and coriander in a food processor and blitz together, making sure you retain a little texture.

3. Divide the fish cake mixture into little patties. On a clean surface, carefully shape into four cakes about 2.5cm thick. Transfer to a plate, cover and chill for 30 minutes (or up to a day).

4. Heat the olive oil in a large, non-stick sauté pan over high heat and cook about 4 - 5 at a time (don’t overcrowd the pan or they won’t brown up as they should). Cook for a minute, then reduce the heat a little, turn and cook for another 60-90 seconds (they are small so will cook quickly). Repeat until all the fish cakes are cooked and serve warm, drizzled with a little Asian dressing, and a mixed leaf salad.

Ingredients for Filling

  • 2 medium lemons
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs, beaten well
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Ingredients for Nancie's Double-Crust Pastry

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, very cold
  • ¼ cup vegetable shortening, very cold
  • 4 – 7 tablespoons ice water

Shaker Lemon Pie - Home & Family

Directions for Filling

1. Using your sharpest knife (a serrated knife is ideal), trim each lemon to remove the stem end and tip. Slice each lemon crosswise, as thinly as you can possibly do it, into paper-thin circles. If you can drape them over the knife blade like the watches in Salvador Dali’s surrealistic paintings, you’re on the right track. Scoop up as much of the escaping lemon juices as possible while you work, and add them to the bowl of sliced lemons.
2. Chop the thinly sliced lemons coarsely, so that the largest pieces of lemon rind and pith are barely 1-inch long, again gathering escaping juices back into the bowl, to capture their bright flavor.
3. Add the sugar to the bowl of lemons, and stir to mix them together well. Cover and set aside at room temperature, for at least 3 hours and as long as overnight. Stir occasionally with a big spoon, to mix everything together well.
4. To complete the pie, heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 9-inch pie pan with crust, leaving a 1-inch overhang.
5. Add the eggs, flour, and salt to the bowl of sugary lemons. Stir to mix everything evenly and well. Pour this filling into the piecrust. Roll the remaining dough into a 10-inch circle and place it carefully over the filling. Trim away the extra pastry, leaving a 1-inch overhang extending beyond the rim of the pie pan.

6. To seal the pie, fold the top crust over the edge of the bottom crust, Press the two crusts together very firmly, all around the pie. Crimp this folded edge in a pointed design. Or press the tines of a fork into the pastry rim, working around the pie to make a handsome design.
7. Cut 8 steam vents in the top of the pie, so that steam can escape, and the pie’s juices can bubble up. Place the pie on a baking sheet and place it on a rack positioned in the middle of the 400 degree F oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
8. Reduce the heat to 375 degrees F and bake until the filling is bubbling and thickened, and the pastry crust is cooked and handsomely browned, 30 to 40 minutes more. Place the pie on a cooling rack or a folded kitchen towel and let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature. Ice cream or whipped cream complement this pie wonderfully.

Directions for Double-Crust Pastry

1. Pulse flour and salt in a food processor until combined, about 3 or 4 times. Add cubed butter and shortening, and pulse until butter and shortening break down into pea-sized bits and flakes. With machine running, add 4 tablespoons ice water. Stop and pulse 4 times. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons water and pulse a few times more, until dough just begins to clump together.
2. Spread 2 layers of parchment paper or waxed paper on countertop. Turn piecrust dough out onto paper. Gather edges of paper up and use them to pull dough into a big lump. Open paper and divide lump in two. Wrap each half in plastic and gently shape into a flat plump disk. Chill 2 hours or up to 2 days.
3. To bake a pie, place one lump of chilled dough on a floured surface. Dust a rolling pin with flour, and roll out the piecrust. Starting from the center, roll outward, up and down, and on the diagonal, stopping to move the crust clockwise as you roll, so that it doesn’t stick to the surface. Add more flour as needed and keep moving around the crust to make a big circle.
4. When the crust is at least an inch larger than the rim of the pie pan, gently roll it onto your rolling pin and transfer it to the pie pan. Unroll it to line the pan, moving it around gently, to center it with even edges. Trim edges to 1 inch from the edge of the pan overhang. Push and tuck gently to place the pastry --- avoid stretching and pulling it to make it fit. If time, chill the pastry lined pie pan for an hour or longer.
5. When ready to bake, fill the crust, place top crust over filling, tuck it in, trim and crimp the edges to seal well, cut vents in the top, and bake as directed.

  • 5 1/3 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons condensed milk
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup malted milk powder
  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 1/2 ounces cooked purple yam, puréed (see note) 3 ounces ube halaya jam
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon ube extract (optional)
  • Salt & Sugar, to taste
  • 1 cup malted milk pieces, chopped

Ube Malted Crunch Ice Cream - Home & Family


1. In a 4 qt stockpot, heat whole milk on medium heat and bring to 95F.
2. Add condensed milk, malted milk powder, & sugar, reserving 1/4 cup sugar on the side. Whisk to dissolve.
3. When mixture reaches 113F, add heavy cream. Continue to whisk frequently.
4. In a small bowl, add remaining 1/4 cup sugar to egg yolk. Whisk together until pale yellow. Set aside.
5. Once mixture reaches 122F, add purple yam purée, ube halaya jam, & egg yolk-sugar mixture.
6. Whisking constantly, continue to heat ice cream base to 170F. Immediately remove from heat and transfer to an ice bath to cool.
7. Once ice cream base has cooled to a lukewarm temperature, process in a blender until completely smooth. Add extract (optional). Season with salt and/or more sugar to taste. Note: Your base should taste about 10% stronger in flavor/ sweetness than you’d prefer, as the flavors will be muted once frozen.
8. Strain ice cream base through a fine mesh strainer and transfer to an air tight container & refrigerate for at least 12 hours, or overnight.
9. Process the ice cream base through an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. Ideally, the ice cream will be ready when the mixture has reached 20F or lower. In the last few seconds of churning, add malted milk pieces.
10. Transfer ice cream to a shallow container and freeze for 10 minutes to harden before serving. Serve ice cream within 4 hours of churning. Any ice cream kept past this time will grow ice crystals rapidly in a home freezer.

Sweet purple yams of the Okinawan variety can be found at Asian supermarkets or specialty produce stores. Boil them until soft and then purée.
You can also prepare a purée from dehydrated ube powder- also found at Asian supermarkets; follow the directions on the package.
“Ube halaya jam” can also be found at any Asian market, packaged in glass jars. Be aware that the jam has sugar added to it, so consider reducing the sugar in your recipe if substituting some of the purple yam purée for ube halaya jam.

  • 3 cups peeled carrots (about 9 medium carrots)
  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2¾ cups self-rising flour + 3 tablespoons + plus additional for dusting
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1½ tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1 stick very cold unsalted butter + 1½ tablespoons, melted
  • 1¼ cup full fat plain yogurt, chilled
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons very cold water, if needed


For the Carrots:
1. Heat the oven to 425°F.
2. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
3. Cut the carrots into ½-inch thick pieces.
4. Place them on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Toss to combine.
5. Roast for 30-35 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking, until the carrots are tender when pierced with a knife.
6. Allow to cool completely, then roughly chop them into small pieces.
For the Biscuits:
1. Heat the oven to 450°F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a small bowl, add the chopped carrots and 3 tablespoons of flour. Mix to combine and set aside.
3. In another small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and honey. Set alongside the carrots.
4. Add the 2¾ cups flour, soda, salt and sage to a large, wide bowl. Whisk to fully combine.
5. Place a box grater in the large bowl and grate the butter into the flour mixture. Using your fingers, shake the grated pieces of butter into the dough to evenly disperse. Add the carrots and shake with your fingers again to fully incorporate.
6. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the yogurt-honey mixture. Gently bring the dough together with a rubber scraper. If it’s still a bit too dry, add the cold water one tablespoon at a time. The dough should be a little tacky to the touch when ready.
7. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place the dough in the refrigerator and chill for at least 20 minutes.
8. Turn the dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface. Gently pat out into a round. Using a well-floured rolling pin, roll out to 1-inch thickness. Take a 2-inch biscuit cutter, press directly down into the dough (DO NOT TWIST!) to cut out the biscuits. Place the biscuits on the baking sheet. Bring the dough scraps together. Roll out to 1-inch thickness and cut again. Place on the baking sheet. You should have 22-24 biscuits. If there is any dough left, gently form the “runt” biscuit with your hands and put on the baking sheet.
9. Lightly brush the tops with the melted butter.
10. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Rotate the baking sheet halfway through to ensure even color.
11. Serve warm or at room temperature.
