Although this dish is named for Marbella, a stylish resort town just east of Gibraltar on the Spanish Riviera., it was actually first produced in New York City by the Silver Palette Cookbook ladies, Sheila Lukins and Julee Rosso. For the 21st century, the amount of chicken and sugar has been pared way down to give it the spirit of a healthy, Mediterranean style diet. This dish goes well with rice or orzo and a vegetable side such as roasted asparagus or green beans, raisins, and pine nuts.
An easy lemon sheet cake recipe that is made in a 9×13-inch pan and has a delicious simple lemon glaze on top. This lemon cake tastes even better the next day!
Linguine with Scampi Shrimp and Basil
Prepared Mediterranean-style and tossed in a light sauce with garlic, onions, white wine, and lemon juice. Add your favorite salad to start!
Chorizo Sausage and Manchego Cheese Tortilla
This substantial tortilla is delicious hot or cold. Cut it into chunky wedges and serve for supper or a light lunch with a fresh tomato and basil salad. The addition of spicy chorizo and tangy cheese gives it a wonderful, rich flavor.
Baked Chicken and Root Vegetables
An easy, but very tasty, one dish wonder. The chicken sits supremely on top, dripping its lovely juices into the vegetables.
Peperonata is a very tasty dish, ideal as an accompaniment to meats. It is shown here as an accompaniment to Pork Spiedini. The ingredients can be found throughout the year so that one can enjoy it at room temperature on a hot summer day and piping hot in the winter.
Classic Chicken Chili
A hearty Tex-Mex stew. Perfect for family meals.
Beef and Andouille Stew
It is quite a revelation to realize how different (and better) a stew or chilli can taste when you use cubes of stewing beef instead of ground beef. Beware, of course, that this recipe takes around 2 hours to be ready, rather than 45 minutes.
Tomato Fettuccine with Basil and Brie.
With just a handful of ingredients, you can make a delicious fresh tomato sauce for pasta in 10 minutes flat.
There's a basic tomato rule of thumb when you're shopping at the supermarket: The smaller the tomato, the better, especially during the off-season. Larger tomatoes are picked while still green; if they were allowed to ripen on the vine (as all tomatoes would be in an ideal world), they'd bruise themselves under their own weight during shipping. Cherry tomatoes, on the other hand, are picked when much closer to fully ripe. Their small size means that even when ripe, they're tougher.*
One of our favourite chicken recipes. Lots of complex flavors going on. Fairly simple and fast for a weeknight meal, but also a good anchor for a fancy meal.
