Sweet Potato Puree with Streusel Topping

Now that we’re back in Indiana, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving at my mom’s rather than hosting.  My assignments included the sweet potatoes.  I asked if anyone had strong opinions about them, and my sister replied that she would only eat them if they’re loaded with butter and brown sugar.  This recipe should do the trick.

Skillet-Baked Ziti

Like a number of the items on this blog, my friend Virginia turned me on to this.  The great thing about this recipe is the versatility.  It can be cooked quickly (30 minutes from start to finish) and in a single pan, making it a great weeknight dinner.  It can also be cooked in advance and finished much later in a hot oven.  You can also double or triple the recipe, using a pot instead of a skillet and transferring it to a baking dish before sprinkling with the Mozzarella and finishing in the oven.

Rosemary-Cayenne Walnuts

This is one of those recipes where some kind of voodoo happens that makes the result way better than you’d imagine it would be.  My friend Virginia Fox makes these occasionally for parties, and I always find myself camped-out by the bowl.  There are only 5 ingredients and it takes about 11 minutes total (including 10 minutes in the oven) to make, but they’re outstanding.

Grilled Vegetables with Scallion-Serrano Vinaigrette

This may be the perfect summer appetizer (or side dish, if you prefer).  You can use whatever vegetables are in season and available and you can put them on the grill while it’s heating up for cooking your main course.  The green chile and cilantro in the vinaigrette work very well with the grilled vegetables, but would also make the dressing perfect for grilled salmon, pork, or chicken.

Roast Vegetable Green Chile Enchiladas

This is another recipe from the Rick Bayless Twitter contest (see the post on Chipotle-Glazed Baby Back Ribs for more details).  As with the ribs, I missed the contest deadline due to the move, but still wanted to give it a try.

Leek Bread Pudding

When I was looking for a starch to accompany some grilled meats, I came across this one from Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc at Home.  Everything I’ve made from that book has been a hit, and this was no exception.  The leeks, herbs, butter, and cheese make this perfectly savory (if not exactly low-fat).

Salsa Mac and Cheese

This recipe is another Rick Bayless original.  It’s really just a standard mac and cheese recipe with some jarred (or homemade) salsa included.  Because we made this for a family meal, we used mild salsa, but this would be even better made with a fairly spicy salsa.
