    • tuscan-scrambled-eggs.jpg
    • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
       1 large yellow onion, peeled and chopped
       1 1/4 lb (600g) plum tomatoes, peeled and chopped or 1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
       6 eggs
       Salt and freshly ground pepper




      1 Heat olive oil on medium heat in a nonstick skillet. Add the onions and cook until translucent, just starting to turn golden in color, about 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook over low heat until the liquid evaporates, about 40 minutes.




      2 Whisk the eggs in a bowl until well blended. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add the eggs to the tomato and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, and scraping from the bottom with a wooden spoon. Remove from heat as soon as the eggs begin to set, but are still moist, about 3 minutes. Turn out onto a serving plate. Serve immediately.




       Serves 3.

    • stuffed-herbed-chicken.jpg
    • Ingredients
       2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, 1/2-pound each
       Fresh basil leaves, (or other green - beet green, swiss chard, spinach), enough to cover each chicken breast
       2 Tbsp finely chopped toasted walnuts
       2.5 oz Boursin garlic and herb cheese (or 2.5 oz of herbed cream cheese recipe, see below), room temperature
       1/3 cup bread crumbs
       3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
       1 egg, beaten well


      Herbed Cheese
       2.5 oz cream cheese, softened
       1 garlic clove, minced
       3 teaspoons fresh parsley, minced
       3 teaspoons fresh chives, minced
       A pinch of cayenne
       1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black peppercorns
       A pinch salt


      1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Put each chicken breast half between two layers of plastic wrap, on a chopping board, and use a meat mallet to pound until 1/4-inch thick.


      2 Dip each basil (or other bitter green) leaf in boiling water, drain and set aside.


      3 If you are not starting with Boursin herbed cheese, make your own by mixing together the Herbed Cheese ingredients mentioned above. Mix the walnuts into the cheese mixture, set aside.


      4 Lay the chicken breasts flat, season each side with salt and pepper. Spread the cheese-walnut mixture over each breast, covering the surface of the breasts. Layer on the basil leaves. Starting at the shortest end of the chicken breast, roll up as tightly as possible and tuck in the ends to form a neat roll. Secure each breast with 2 toothpicks.


      5 Put flour, beaten egg, and bread crumbs combined with the Parmesan cheese on to 3 separate flat dishes. Dredge each chicken breast roll first in the flour, then the egg, and finally the Parmesan bread crumbs. (Skip this step if you are going low carb and/or gluten-free.)


      6 Transfer chicken breasts to a greased baking dish, seam side down. Bake at 350°F for 40-50 minutes, depending on the size of the breast, until the internal temperature is 165°F, the juices run clear, and the chicken is slightly browned.


      Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.


      Serves 2-4.

       1/4 cup grapeseed oil
       3 garlic cloves, minced

      Optional - 2 Tbsp chopped roasted walnuts or pistachios
       1 Tbsp chopped cilantro

    • potato-sausage-casserole.jpg
    • 1 1/2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, plus extra to grease the baking dish
       2 teaspoons of olive oil
       8 oz fresh spinach, washed, dried, and stemmed
       1/2 lb of Italian sausage (we like 1/2 sweet and 1/2 hot Italian sausage), broken out of casing into small pieces
       1 large red onion (about 3/4 lb), peeled and sliced thin
       1 small garlic clove, minced
       1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes (about 3 medium sized potatoes), peeled and cut into 1-inch chuncks
       1/4 cup heavy cream
       2 Tablespoons chicken broth
       1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
       dash of nutmeg
       3/8 teaspoon of salt
       1/4 teaspoon pepper
       1 cup of shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese


      1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Butter a 6x9 or 8x8 inch baking dish.


      2 Heat one of the teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add spinach and cook, stirring often, until wilted, about 3 minutes. Transfer spinach to strainer and drain. When cool, squeeze out liquid and roughly chop the spinach.


      3 Wipe skillet clean. Add sausage to skillet and cook over medium-high heat until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Use slotted spoon to transfer sausage to bowl. Wipe skillet clean. Heat remaining oil in skillet and add onions, cooking until golden, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Scrape mixture into bowl with sausage.


      4 Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring potatoes to boil over high heat, then lower heat to a simmer. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain potatoes, wipe pot dry, put potatoes back into the pot, and mash with butter, cream, broth, vinegar, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir in spinach and 1/2 cup of the cheese.


      5 Transfer potato-spinach mixture to prepared baking dish. Top with sausage-onion mixture and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Bake until potatoes are very hot and cheese is golden and bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.


      Serves 4.

       1 Trim some of the fat from the meat. Pat dry with paper towels. Season generously with the salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, shimmering but not smoking, add the roast and cook, turning it a few times, until it is nicely browned on all sides, 10-12 minutes. Transfer the meat to a platter.

      2 Reduce the heat to medium. Add the carrot, celery, and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are golden brown and begin to stick to the bottom of the pan, 10-12 minutes. Add the garlic, parsley, and sage, and stir until the herbs are lightly colored and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add 1 cup of the wine and stir quickly, lifting up the richly browned caramelized vegetables that stick to the bottom of the pan. When the wine is almost all evaporated and thickly coats the vegetables, return the meat to the pan and turn it over a few times to coat it with the savory base.
