My Cook: Spaghetti Carbonara with Roasted Caesar Broccoli

March 15, 2019

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 1 hr, 45 minutes

Spaghetti Carbonara is a simply perfect dish. A silky, rich egg sauce coats the tender al dente noodles which are dotted with crispy bites of pancetta and topped with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Cooking the egg yolks low and slow thickens them into an unctuous sauce and has the added benefit of pasteurizing the egg. Tossed with a little of the starchy pasta water, the sauce perfectly coats..

My Cook: Glazed Lemon Cake Bars

March 14, 2019

Serves: 8

Active Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Cooking Time: 4 hours 15 minutes

Lemony, sweet, and tangy, these lemon cake bars are bursting with bright flavor. We use lemon peel as well as lemon juice to pack as much citrus flavor as possible into this dessert. Not only do we use lemon in the cake, but we also call for it in the syrup that’s brushed onto the hot cake and the glaze that’s poured onto the cooled crust. We didn’t shy away from..

My Cook: Manicotti

March 13, 2019

Serves 2

Active prep time: 15 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Traditional manicotti recipes call for rolled, homemade crepes instead of store bought pasta. While homemade crepes stuffed with ricotta and topped with marinara sound delicious, we wanted a recipe that wouldn’t take hours to make. Our version only takes about 15 minutes to assemble thanks to the uncooked manicotti tubes, which are a breeze to fill. The filling for the..

My Cook: Blueberry Coffee Cake

March 12, 2019

Serves: 8

Active Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Cook Time: 4 hours 15 minutes

Coffee cake is a true morning hero. A crunchy, crumbly topping of butter and sugar sits nestled on a pillow of soft, vanilla cake, and we call this breakfast. You might raise a few eyebrows if you tuck into a slice of devil’s food or birthday cake with your morning coffee (except here at Suvie, we don’t judge), but coffee cake is given a free pass. Eat your cake! And..

My Cook: Short Rib Mac and Cheese

March 8, 2019

Active Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 13 hours

Mac and cheese gets an adult upgrade in this recipe, but kids of all ages will love this dish. Beef short rib braised in red wine and aromatics is the perfect accompaniment to creamy, Gruyere-laced, breadcrumb-topped mac and cheese. Short ribs are well-marbled cuts of beef taken from the bottom ends of the ribs. The marbling means a good amount of fat helps to keep the meat moist during the long..

My Cook: Sesame Chicken

Serves: 4

Total prep time: 20 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Sesame chicken is a classic Americanized dish found in Chinese restaurants across the United States. Sweet, sour, and sticky, this dish is usually deep fried, but we have adapted this recipe for your Suvie without sacrificing any flavor. Typically this dish is sweeter than it is spicy, but if you want to up the heat feel free to increase the amount of chili sauce to 1 tbsp...

My Cook: Garlic Confit Chicken with Braised Carrots

March 4, 2019

 

Confit is a classic French technique that was originally used to preserve meats (primarily poultry) in fat. The slow poaching of the meat in its own fat slowly evaporates off water and creates an airtight seal once the oil cools. In this recipe, we impart more flavor into the chicken by using olive oil and including garlic cloves and shallots. Braising the carrots with chicken stock and honey adds depth and sweetness, and the barley adds..

My Cook: Baked Stuffed Shells

March 1, 2019

Serves: 2-3

Active prep time: 25 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Baked stuffed shells are the perfect parcel of pasta, filling, and sauce. We stayed with a classic combination of large pasta shells, marinara sauce (jarred or homemade, up to you), and creamy ricotta filling flecked with basil and red pepper flakes. No need to boil the shells before you put them in your Suvie, the long cook time will adequately soften them. Filling..

Packed with oats, applesauce and bananas and topped with crunchy nuts and coconut this cake is as satisfying as it is tasty.

Saag paneer is a beloved Indian dish featuring lots of chopped leafy greens, which in this case is spinach, and cubes of paneer cheese simmered in a spicy, creamy sauce.
