Ingredients:

  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1¼ cups milk at room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more as needed
  • 4 Macintosh or other small apples
  • Warm maple syrup, as an accompaniment

Kitchen Tools: Shop all Food NetworkShop in store or kohls.com/foodnetwork for Kitchen Tools to Make this Recipe

  • Reversible Grill/Griddle
  • Whisk
  • Small Bowl
  • Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Wire Rack
  • Baking Sheet
  • Plate
  • Apple Corer or Melon Baller
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Measuring Cups
  • Rubber Spatula
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F. Set a wire rack on a baking sheet and place in the oven.
  2. Whisk 1¾ cups flour, the sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl. In small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk the eggs with the milk and vanilla extract. Melt 3 tablespoons butter. Whisk the butter into the milk mixture. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry mixture, and whisk just long enough to make a thick batter (if there are a couple lumps that's okay).
  3. Using a melon baller or an apple corer, peel and core the apples keeping them whole. Slice the apples crosswise to make ¼ inch rounds. Put some flour on a plate and dredge the apple slices until lightly coated, shaking off any excess flour.
  4. In the griddle over medium to medium-low heat, place 3 apple slices about 3 inches apart in the griddle. Cook without turning until browned, about 3 minutes. Ladle about 2 tablespoons of the batter over each apple ring. Cook, until bubbles break the surface of the pancakes, and the undersides are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add a nut-sized bit of butter to the griddle, as needed, and flip the pancakes; cook until golden on the underside, about 1 minute more.
  5. Serve immediately or transfer to oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining apples and batter. Serve with warm maple syrup.

Makes about 20 four-inch pancakes.

  1. Put butternut squash in a medium pot with broth, scallions, adobo sauce, garlic, salt and cumin. Bring to a simmer and cook until squash is tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove squash with slotted spoon; reserve broth. Set aside half the squash for filling; mash remaining squash in large bowl. Mix in masa with a fork. Slowly pour seasoned broth over filling, mixing with a fork (or hands) until smooth. Slowly stir in oils, a little at a time, until dough is soft and moist. Cover with plastic wrap; set aside.

    Filling:

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add scallions, garlic, chiles, cumin and salt and cook until soft, about 1 minute. Add reserved squash, olives, raisins, capers, and cook, stirring gently, until well combined, about 1 minute longer.

Place about ¼ cup dough in center of each husk, leaving enough corn husk free to enclose tamale. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons filling on top. Cover filling with about 2-3 more tablespoons dough. Wrap husks around filling and twist and tie ends with reserved strips to close.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat oil in an ovenproof Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, Herbes de Provence and bay leaf, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes, salt and pepper, to taste, breaking the tomatoes into rough chunks with a spoon. Once the vegetables sizzle, put the ratatouille in the oven and bake, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and browning, up to 1½ hours. (If you prefer your vegetables al dente, you can cut the baking time by as much as half.) Remove from the oven and stir in basil and parsley. Transfer to a bowl and serve warm or at room temperature.

Lightly brush the salmon flesh first with olive oil and then with some of the tamarind sauce, using about half the sauce for the 4 fillets. Season with salt to taste. Carefully lay fish, skin side down, on the hot broiler pan. Broil the fish until just firm and brown, brushing with more sauce halfway through the cooking, for a total of 7 to 8 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes to let the salmon finish cooking. Divide the fish among serving plates, spoon some salad next to each fillet, and pass any remaining tamarind sauce at the table.

  1. Preheat the broiler. Line a small pan with aluminum foil and broil the tomato, turning as needed, until the skin chars and splits on all sides. Wrap the tomato in the foil and cool.
  2. Core the tomato and chop it roughly, skin and all?it is going to be quite juicy and you want to keep all of it. Puree the tomato with the juices in a food processor or blender with the tamarind concentrate, brown sugar, chipotles, vinegar, garlic, and salt until smooth.

    Glaze:

  • ½ cup pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Aleppo pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce

Kitchen Tools: Shop all Food NetworkShop in store or kohls.com/foodnetwork for Kitchen Tools to Make this Recipe

  • Measuring Spoons
  • Knife for slicing vegetables

  • Nonstick Roasting Pan
  • Meat Thermometer
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Baster
  • Serving Platter
  • Large Stock Pot
  • Large bucket or pot
  • Kitchen Twine
  • Medium Saucepan
  • Electric Knife
  1. For the brine and turkey: In a large stock pot, bring water, 1 ½ cups kosher salt, sugar, coriander, ginger and bay leaves to a boil over high heat. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure the salt and sugar dissolve. While the brine is simmering, place the ice in a bucket or pot big enough to hold the turkey. Pour the brine over the ice. When the brine has cooled, add the turkey. Place a heavy object like a plate or lid on top of the turkey to keep it submerged in the brine. Refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours.
  2. Position an oven rack on the lowest level of the oven and preheat the oven to 450°F. Remove the turkey from the brine and pat it dry; discard the brine. Tuck the wings underneath the turkey. Sprinkle the turkey inside and out with salt. Put the celery, lemon, onion and parsley into the cavity of the turkey and tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Place breast-side down in a roasting pan fitted with a rack. Roast for 30 minutes.
  3. For the glaze: While the turkey roasts, combine the pomegranate molasses, 3 tablespoons water and Aleppo pepper in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Adjust heat and simmer, uncovered, until thick and syrupy, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the butter and soy sauce and remove from heat.
  4. After 30 minutes of roasting, turn the turkey breast-side up and lower the oven temperature to 325°F. Roast 3 hours longer, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh but not touching bone registers 160°F. When the thermometer registers 155°F, or during the last 30 minutes of cooking, begin basting with glaze every 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the turkey from the oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving.

Makes 16 to 18 servings, allowing 1 pound per person.
