A list of all the recipes Connie Lewis has tested.
Yogurt and Cucumber Dip ~ Mast-o-Khiar
Mast-o-khiar is a chic, Persian cucumber and yogurt dip. Sort of like tzatziki but seriously pretty with the addition of golden raisins and dried rose petals.
What’s chrain, you ask? It’s a heck of a traditional condiment with a bite to it. And it’s coming to a holiday table near you.
Beer-Braised Chicken Thighs
Chicken thighs are coaxed to incredible taste and tenderness in this stew that sneaks in root vegetables bathed in beer. Simple to make. Complex in taste. Unforgettable all around.
Grated Carrot Salad
Yoohoo, you who’s trying to eat more healthfully, start cramming carrots in your pieholes with this satisfying little number.
Roast Chicken with Moroccan Spices
This is definitely NOT the roast chicken of our childhood. And with all due respect, we couldn’t be happier about that.
Roast Chicken with Citrus
The words “orange chicken” used to make us think of gloppy Chinese takeout—until we tried this orange chicken.
Baked Fish with Lemon Bread Crumbs
Quick, easy, healthful, spectacular in terms of taste, and exactly what you need these last couple of Fridays before Easter.
