Crispy baked wings with buffalo sauce or ginger-soy glaze

Bill made these wings after he and I had been craving them for quite some time — and these were exactly what we wanted. They were crispy on the outside and perfectly moist inside. Bill nailed it. All I had to do was shoot and enjoy.

Blueberry breakfast pastry with citrus glaze

Mom made a version of this pastry for a brunch she hosted during one of my recent trips home, and I couldn’t stop eating it. She’s made it several times over the years and first got the recipe from a friend, Mrs. Chadwick, a mother of eight who was always having people over and often employed quick, easy recipes. The original recipe includes Bisquick, but I subbed in flour, baking powder and salt instead. Mom’s favorite way to serve this pastry is with either apricot preserves or raspberry jam with a simple milk/confectioners’ sugar glaze. I couldn’t resist trying a citrus glaze on mine. Are you surprised?

I used acorn squash, but would suggest using a less-stringly squash like butternut or delicata.

For the squash

  • 1 pound winter squash OR you can substitute sweet potatoes (probably awesome)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus some greasing for the pan
  • 1 or 2 canned chipotle chiles, chopped, with 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (this comes in the same can, if you’re new to the chipotle scene)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon honey

    I actually could have gone for a little extra glaze on on my squash - might make more next time around.

  • Salt and black pepper

In a small bowl – or with a mortal and pestle – combine the olive oil, chiles, adobo sauce, garlic and honey. Toss the cubed squash in the mixture, or use brush to coat the squash. Either way, place the squash on a lightly oiled cooking sheet or glass dish. Roast at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes, or until you can easily insert a knife into the squash.

For the black beans

  • 1 can black beans (drain only SOME of the juices)
  • olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/3 cup roasted red pepper, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Sauté the onions and garlic on medium heat in the olive oil until soft. Add the cumin to the pan and combine. Add half the can of black beans to the pan, including the juices. Rinse the rest of the beans and add to the pan. Simmer the beans for 7-10 minutes (adding water if it seems to get too dry). Mash 1/3 or 1/2 the beans with a fork. Add the roasted red pepper, salt and pepper.

For the rice

  • 2 cups cooked rice (I’m a big fan of basmati rice – which comes white or brown)
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • loose 1/3 cup cilantro, roughly chopped

Once the rice is cooked, add the butter, lime juice and cilantro.

Layer – in order – the rice, beans and top with the glazed squash. Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.

Makes about 2 or 3 servings.
