• 8 cups sourdough bread, cubed

1 . Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9-by-13-inch oven safe

or torn into bite-sized pieces

casserole dish, set aside. Add the sourdough bread to a large mixing

(about 1/2 inch)

bowl, set aside.

• 1 pound (5 links) sweet Italian sausage, casings removed • 1 large yellow onion, diced • 1 small (or baby) leek, diced • 3/4 cup (3—4 ribs) celery, diced • Kosher salt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste • 1 tsp garlic powder • 1 tsp ground sage • 1/2 dried thyme

2 . Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until deeply

browned. As the sausage cooks, use a spatula to break it into small, bitesize pieces. Use a slotted spoon to remove the sausage from the skillet, and let cool. 3 . Add the chopped onion, leek and celery to the skillet, and cook in the

leftover sausage grease until just softened, about 3 minutes, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. If there isn’t enough grease to lightly coat the vegetables, add 1 tbsp of the melted butter to the skillet. 4 . Add the garlic, sage, thyme and nutmeg, and stir to combine. Cook for

another two minutes, then remove from the heat and add the melted butter, chicken broth and sausage to the skillet. Give a good stir to combine, then slowly pour over the bread, and toss to combine. The bread should be evenly moist, but not soggy. Add the pear and toss to

• 1/4 ground nutmeg • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted • 1 cup chicken broth, plus more as needed • 2 Bosc or Comice pears, chopped (peeled if desired)

combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 5 . In a small bowl, beat the egg until blended, then drizzle over the stuffing

mixture and gently mix until just combined. Transfer the stuffing to the prepared baking dish, and spread in an even layer. 6 . Cover the stuffing with foil and bake until thoroughly cooked through,

about 30 minutes. Remove the foil, and cook an additional 20-25 minutes, until the top is golden brown and slightly crispy. Top with dried cranberries and serve warm.

• 1 large egg • 1/4 cup dried cranberries

Butternut Squash Soup with Apple & Homemade Croutons B y Wa i t i n g o n Mar t h a

In g re d i en t s

D i rec t i o n s

For the soup:

For the soup:

• 2 sticks of unsalted butter

1 . In a Dutch oven or stockpot over medium heat, melt the butter.

• 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced • 1 jar (2 lbs) butternut squash puree (I prefer Williams-Sonoma) • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced • 2 cups vegetable broth • 2 small bay leaves

Add the onion and cook until soft but not browned, 12 to 15 minutes. 2 . Add the butternut squash puree, apple, broth, bay leaves and salt and stir to

combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Partially cover the pot and simmer for 30 minutes. 3 . Remove the bay leaves and discard. Using an immersion blender, puree the

soup directly in the pot until smooth. 4 . Ladle the soup into warmed bowls and garnish with sage leaves, croutons

and pepper. Serve immediately. Serves 6 to 8.

• 3 tsp kosher salt

For the croutons:

• Sage leaves for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

• Freshly ground pepper, to taste

2. Cut bread into large squares and place into a mixing bowl. Add 2-4

For the croutons: • Crusty bread such as French, sourdough, or you can even use dinner rolls • 2—4 tbs olive oil • Salt

tablespoons of olive oil and salt, mix together with your hands. You want just enough olive oil to lightly coat each piece, but not enough where the bread is soggy. 3. Place bread on to a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes just until bread is golden brown. Switch oven to broil for 2-3 minutes to properly crust the croutons. Make sure to watch this last step as the croutons can quickly burn.

Simple Syrups How to Make

b Y K i t c h en L i v i n g w i t h C o r yanne

When making a simple syrup, remember to measure out equal parts water and white granulated sugar. Simmer it down for 3-5 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and it coats the spoon. Then allow it to rest at room temperature until it is cool enough to store in a glass container. You can dream up any flavor profile by playing with fruits, herbs and spices. Like all great recipes, taste as you go. If you find that the flavor is too strong, add in more sugar and water to dilute it. If it is not strong enough, add a bit more infusion until you have the right balance. Or‌if you don’t have the patience to fiddle with imperfection, embrace it and play with your drink ingredients to balance out the imperfections. On any given day I have one of these bottles in the fridge and they never disappoint.

For the crust:

• 1 cup raw almonds

1 . Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees and lightly grease

• 1/2 tsp salt • 1 tbsp cinnamon • 2 tbsp maple syrup • 1 tbsp vanilla extract • 1 cup all purpose flour • 1 tsp baking soda • 1/4 cup vegan margarine (I used Earth Balance buttery sticks), or more if needed to form pliable dough • Coconut oil spray or margarine, for greasing pan For the filling: • 2 packages of silken tofu (about 12 oz each) • 1 cup of Biscoff Spread, softened • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

two shallow tart pans or 6 individual tart pans. 2 . In food processor pulse the almonds, salt, cinnamon,

maple syrup, and vanilla extract until a very fine crumb is formed. Add in the flour, baking soda, and vegan margarine and pulse until a dough ball is formed. 3 . Press the crust into the bottom and up the sides of

2 lightly greased shallow tart pans (ensuring even distribution) and then bake for 15 minutes or until golden and firm. 4 . Remove from the oven and let cool.

For the filling: 1 . In a blender, quickly blend together the tofu, Biscoff

spread, vanilla extract, soy milk, and half the sugar until smooth. 2 . Taste mixture to determine if the remaining half of

sugar should be added (some people like a very sweet tart, whereas I prefer a slightly smoother tart) and add or not accordingly. 3 . With the blender running, gradually add the cornstarch

until fully blended. • 1/2 cup vanilla soymilk, or additional if needed to achieve viscosity • 1/2 cup vegan granulated sugar, to taste • 1 tbsp cornstarch

4 . Taste mixture and add salt, if needed. 5 . Fill cooled tart crusts with mixture. 6 . Cover and chill in fridge overnight to set. 7 . Serve cool and garnish with seasonal fruits

individual sprig under a ribbon. Here I tied a 2-inch wide ribbon in a soft gold hue and tucked the rosemary just off to the center. 2 . Head to your backyard or flower market for some

seasonal and easy to find leaves and flowers. Any combination of rustic greens will give this natural lush effect. Here I mixed in 2 stems of myrtle, a piece of seeded eucalyptus, feather grass and a sprig of mini white wildflowers. To secure, I tied with a burlap colored string and topped with a handwritten name tag. I love that this little bouquet can also serve as a little party favor and be taken home by your guests! 3 . Repeat with a stalk of whatever green leaf element you

chose for your mini bouquet and lay above something with gold texture. The bright, bold dash of green on a fresh napkin really makes a statement. 4 . Make a sweet mini wreath with a sprig of rosemary.

Simply tie the two ends of the sprig together with a piece of string and lay a name tag across the center.
