Cassolita: Moroccan Squash with Caramelized Onions

Sometimes cooking a dish sends me into another orbit – in this case, Morocco.  I find myself wanting more experiences from this cuisine.  This was the case with Cassolita, a Moroccan Butternut Squash with Caramelized Onions from Paula Wolfert’s “The Food of Morocco” cookbook, which was featured in our Meals in Minutes cooking class last month. The combination of the ingredients are so wonderful together.

Turkey Stock from your Holiday Turkey…10 minutes hands-on time.

Since it’s Hanukkah, I’ve been seeing a lot of latkes on the blogs and in the news.  I was going to a holiday party at a friend’s house, so I decided I would use the yams, carrots, red onion and cilantro I had in my refrigerator to make some latkes for the party. (more…)
