  • Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

    Being a large lover of all things sweet potato, I decided I'd mix it up a bit last night and try something new. This recipe can be doubled as an appetizer or a side dish for your main course. But best yet, it is easy. Ingredients
    • Sweet potatoes
    • Extra virgin olive oil
    • Freshly cracked salt & pepper
    • Rosemary sprigs
    You'll also need: Instructions
    1. Rinse under tap water to remove any dirt (you can peel the skin off if you like). Cut into thin slivers (about ¼'' thick).
    2. Arrange the slices on a baking sheet and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Make sure you turn the pieces over so to get olive oil on both sides. You can use a basting brush to even out the olive  oil if you like.
    3. Season with salt and pepper and throw a few sprigs of rosemary on the top.
    4. Pop it in the oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes.

  • Super Simple Stuffing

    • 1/4 c diced yellow onion

  • "Real" New England Clam Chowda

    This recipe was submitted by a chef that is a member of the Foodservice Community. He graduated from New England Culinary Institute (best culinary school in the country in his opinion) and has been working in restaurants since the age of 15. He started at a little Italian restaurant run by a 70 year old that made everything from scratch. "I think I could make a marinara with my eyes closed now," he told us. The amounts for ingredients are not exact, but close enough (everyone likes to add their own touch). This is his grandmother's recipe that was tweaked a bit and won second place at the Cape Cod chowda festival.
    • 1 cup Diced Bacon (or Salt Pork)
    • 1/2 lb Butter
    • 2 tbsp Canola Oil
    • 2 c Diced Celery
    • 2 c Diced Onions
    • Clam Base
    • 4  c Diced or Minced Clams (canned or frozen - just thaw out)
    • 1/2 gal Water **
    • 1 qt Heavy Cream
    • Light Roux (equal parts butter & flour)
    • Dill
    • Thyme
    • Garlic
    • Salt & Pepper
    **Can use clam juice if you can find a good quality. Kitchen supplies you'll need:
    1. Add butter and oil to a pan and let butter melt.
    2. Sauté bacon until rendered, add celery and onion. Sauté them for a few minutes until they begin to soften.
    3. Add garlic, dill, thyme, salt and pepper (real New England clam chowder goes heavy on pepper).
    4. Add in water and clam base to taste. I like to thicken the water at this point when it comes to a boil. This will prevent you from having to boil the cream later and potentially scorching it.
    5. Add in heavy cream and lower heat, slowly bring up to temp to avoid scorching the cream.
    6. Once the soup is almost to boiling point add the clams and turn off the heat. Clams need to be last to avoid making them chewy. If you like, you can sauté the clams with garlic and butter.
    Serve in a bread bowl and enjoy!
  • Homemade Pumpkin Bread

    There are literally hundreds of different recipes online for pumpkin bread. We found ones that were made with raisins and nuts, some that were made for vegans, others that used Splenda instead of sugar, and the list goes on. This recipe below was submitted by two of our very own Mission employees. After tasting the final product, I have to say that it comes out perfect! The lovely ladies put about a ½ cup less sugar than the recipe calls for, but it was still delicious! Try it out for the upcoming holidays.
