Squash Casserole from 'Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

Squash casserole is an enduring favorite at Southern potlucks. I know that I ate plenty of the stuff growing up, but it was mostly because the flavor of the squash was covered up by ungodly amounts of cheese and butter. These days, I prefer actually tasting my vegetables. Luckily, Nathalie Dupree's version in Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking contains enough squash, onion, and peppers to taste more of summer produce than bulk cheese. More

If fudge is the inspiration for the original, penuche (a "blonde" fudge made with brown sugar, butter, milk, and vanilla) is the muse for this honey-hued variation. More

Rainbow Trout with Red Chili and Pecans

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

The same thing that originally attracted me to this recipe from the Colorado Farmers Market Cookbook, also gave me pause. I couldn't wait to see how the sweet heat of the honey and red chile glaze would pair with the fish fillets and the chopped pecans. This is even though I feared the honey would burn and the nuts would fall off, which is exactly what happened on the first round. Luckily, a little tinkering fixes everything. More
