  • Turkey chili scores with Super Bowl fans Jan 30, 2013 1:19 PM
    For me, chili always screamed football food. When we used to have friends and family over to watch the big game, I would make batches of it and have it simmering for our guests. It's easy to customize each bowl with lots of toppings for every fan.

  • Kitchen Scoop: no precooking necessary for stuffed manicotti Jan 23, 2013 12:10 PM
    "With a stuffed pasta like manicotti you have to do things differently ... never, never, never precook your manicotti noodles ahead of time." That's the advice Kitchen Scoop writer Alicia Ross got from a reader and her testing has proved it's the easiest method for stuffing pasta tubes and shells.

  • Rich greens give low-fat soup flavor, texture Jan 17, 2013 1:24 PM
    Dark leafy greens — namely collards, kale and mustard greens — are powerhouses of vitamins, fiber and other plant-based health benefits. But the taste and texture of these strong greens are a bit much for some people. One way those who don't love greens can enjoy their obvious health benefits is to mix them in with other savory flavors, like in today's recipe for Greens, Sweet Potato and Chicken Soup With Almonds.

  • Kitchen scoop: Steak for one a delicious dinner Jan 9, 2013 2:20 PM
    Alicia Ross says she's tired of feeling like she must eat blah food when she's home alone. What's wrong with sizzling up a steak every now and then? No special occasion is required to make her Steak for One.

  • Fight post-holiday hunger with Asian wraps Dec 31, 2012 11:26 AM
    New Year's resolutions aside, after six weeks of mostly eating outside our normal guidelines, January needs to be a "slimmer" month. Kitchen Scoop's Alicia Ross turns to Asian-inspired flavors that are bold and mouth-popping and that don't have high levels of fat and calories of cream, butter and sugar.

  • Herb roasted tenderloin perfect for holiday grazing Dec 27, 2012 5:00 AM
    Today's recipe for Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin is wonderful with roasted or mashed potatoes and steamed green beans or a simple salad. It's also special enough to stand as the star on a table laden with treats for a small to medium gathering.

  • Kitchen scoop: Ambrosia a healthy holiday salad Dec 19, 2012 10:14 AM
    Cranberry Ambrosia has a modern, mature flavor. It is perfect to pair with any type of roasted meat or vegetable combination, as it stands completely on its own. The leftovers (if you are that lucky) make a luscious side for sandwiches at lunch the next day.

  • Lighter-than-air snowflake cookies a hit for the holidays Dec 12, 2012 5:00 AM
    Snowflake Cookies are sometimes called wedding cookies or pecan puffs, but at my house these have always been a special December treat. These delicate cookies are light as a snowflake and melt-in-your-mouth tender.

  • Holidays the perfect time to try 'best ever' cookies Dec 5, 2012 1:40 PM
    These are crispy oat and chocolate chip cookies, not your traditional Toll House cookies. They spread as they bake; when hot out of the oven, they are moist and gooey-good. After cooling on a wire rack, they get crispy and are perfect with a hot beverage or a cold glass of milk. But the best part is they are perfect to give away.

  • Creamy soup makes midweek dinner feel like a holiday Nov 28, 2012 10:45 AM
    Planning a special menu during the holiday season is fun and festive. But it's not the special menu that stresses me out. It's dinner tonight! It seems I get even more desperate around those big “cooking” days than I do on the big day itself. I feel as if I spend so much time planning the special meal that my everyday dinners suffer.

  • Whip up sweet potato pie for a special holiday treat Nov 20, 2012 11:40 AM
    Alicia Ross says the secret to her Traditional Sweet Potato Pie is whipping the egg whites and folding them into the potato mixture just before putting the mixture into the pie shell. This single step creates a light and fluffy pie that will surely be the best sweet potato pie you have ever tasted.

  • Start off Turkey Day with a tasty quick bread Nov 13, 2012 10:40 AM
    Thanksgiving is the perfect time to pull out Butternut Squash Quick Bread. Breakfast on this day is often overlooked, because with the feast yet to come, you definitely don't want anything heavy. Serve with fruit and coffee, and breakfast on the big day is done.

  • Delicious chocolate biscotti will have you saying ‘ooh’ Nov 7, 2012 1:07 PM
    Double Chocolate Biscotti is a crunchy, wonderful chocolate biscuit that deserves to be in a category all by itself (with or without a long "o"). Since we will all need extra desserts during the upcoming holidays, it's a perfect time to dust off this old favorite.

  • Culinary memories revisited with grandmother’s sirloin Oct 31, 2012 2:02 PM
    Kitchen Scoop's Alicia Ross has reworked a favorite childhood recipe to match her scaled-down family. Instead of country-style chopped sirloin for a crowd for a Sunday dinner, she offers a quick recipe for a weeknight dinner for two.

  • Fresh-baked bread perfectly complements hot caprese sub Oct 18, 2012 10:52 AM
    I have a new food love in my life: take and bake baguettes. Have you seen them in your grocery store? They're usually hidden on the bottom shelf in the deli or bakery section, below the baked breads. Cheap, pale and often overlooked, this is one of the best culinary secrets in the grocery.

  • Kitchen scoop: Memories of mom’s cookies inspire old-time peanut butter favorites Oct 10, 2012 10:05 AM
    I have such fond memories of baking these cookies alongside my mom, mixing and stirring and getting to lick a spoonful of peanut butter while the cookies baked. Then, when my girls were young, this is one of the recipes I used to teach them how to bake.

  • Creamy chevre pulls together flavor of simple pasta dish Oct 3, 2012 3:45 PM
    There is a super-easy pasta sauce that I've missed creating until now. I'm talking about using chevre (or goat cheese) as the creamy binder for simple pasta dishes. I've sampled several versions at restaurants and friends' homes, and maybe you have, too. Some had additional protein; others did not.

  • Kitchen scoop: Chili powder adds sizzle to Mexican-style corn Sep 12, 2012 3:17 PM
    Today's recipe is based on a Mexican-style street corn. You can use parmesan if you can't find cotija cheese, and sour cream works well as a substitute for the Mexican-style cream. Some people even substitute mayonnaise for the cream.

  • Make the most of afternoon break with apple tea cake Sep 6, 2012 11:27 AM
    Apple tea cake is the perfect small sweet; it goes well with brunch, but also works as an after-dinner delight. Leftovers that are wrapped tightly will keep up to four days, so there isn't pressure to eat the whole thing. But, best of all, the cake is a cinch to stir together; you don't even need a mixer.
