Time for Giving

Happy Thoughts At Holiday Time When I started to update this introduction, it occurred to me how much progress we have made toward a return to “normalcy.” At this time of giving thanks, we have so Leah S. Dunaief much to be thankful Publisher for. We are rerunning a previous column as proof. Happy Thanksgiving! LSD Time for Giving, the catalogue you hold in your hands or are viewing on the web, is a package of hope. In its pages are gifts for the holiday season that arrives every year, regardless of what else may be happening. These gifts are symbols of caring, of love, of normal. Help is on the way. We are about to be rescued by science. We now know that a vaccine will be available sometime in the next year. That should begin to restore

life as we have known it pre-virus. There eventually will be a happy end in sight to this bizarre time. We can all agree, it’s been a tough year. That certainly includes for those small business owners and professionals trying to survive in our villages. Many have been deemed nonessential and have shut down for part of what I call, pandemic-time. Others that have remained open have seen their customer base slip down to a trickle, as worried people shelter in place. And what seemed like an improvement of the monster in the summer is returning, as predicted, to torture us again as we face the cold weather of late fall and winter. Take heart. We may not be able to hug our loved ones and dear friends this season of joy and light, but we can send them cards and perhaps gifts, as we always have, to carry our affection and let them know they are a presence in our lives. COVID-19 has taken away a lot from us, but it can’t take away what we want to express to those

This holiday season give the gift of

Stylish Eyewear

who matter to us. We have tried to be of help by doing what we do every year at this time. We have assembled listings of goods and services that we hope will make your search for the appropriate gifts easier. At the same time as you make your selections, please note that these stores and offices are local. They are pillars of our community whose owners serve our needs with their products and their support for local causes. If you do not wish to go inside their places of businesses, they will surely be willing to bring your orders out to the curb for you if you phone or email. And as you shop and rejoice in the deeper meaning of the season, please know that you carry our best wishes for your good health and a brighter future in the year to come. Leah S. Dunaief Editor & Publisher Times Beacon Record News Media 631-751-7744

Holiday recipes for entertaining Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes with Kale and Gruyere

INGREDIENTS: • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper • 2 cloves garlic, smashed • 3 sprigs fresh thyme • 2 tablespoons butter • 3 cloves shallots, diced • 4 large kale leaves, finely chopped (discard stems) • 2 pounds red potatoes, sliced 1/8 inch • 2 ounces gruyere cheese, grated • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 325 F. In small saucepan over medium heat, combine cream, salt, black pepper, garlic and thyme; stir constantly, until cream starts to bubble, 4-6 minutes. When bubbling, remove from heat and stir until slightly cooled. Let cream sit. Heat large (12inch) oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter. When butter melts, add shallots and kale leaves. Saute until kale is tender and bright green, about 4 minutes. Turn off burner. Add sliced potatoes to skillet, fanning over top of kale. Use slotted spoon to remove garlic and thyme from heavy cream. Pour heavy cream over potatoes. Cover skillet tightly with foil and bake until potatoes are tender, 75-85 minutes. Remove skillet from oven and turn on broiler. Discard foil. Sprinkle gruyere and Parmesan cheeses over potatoes, tucking some cheese between potato slices. Return skillet to oven and broil until top is golden brown, 5-6 minutes.

Roast Chicken with Whole Roasted Garlic Recipe courtesy of Rachel Ray

YIELD: Serves 4 INGREDIENTS: • 1 4-pound chicken • Kosher salt • 2 lemons, one pierced several times with the tines of a fork and one halved • Few sprigs each of thyme and rosemary • 4 large bulbs garlic, 1 per person or portion, ends cut to expose the cloves (keep the hairy root end intact) • EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil) for drizzling • Freshly ground black pepper • 3 tablespoons butter • 1 cup white wine • Warm, crusty bread DIRECTIONS:

Place the chicken in a shallow baking dish. Salt the chicken inside and out and place uncovered in the fridge overnight. Preheat the oven to 450 F. Pat the chicken dry and fill with the pierced whole lemon, thyme and rosemary. Tie the legs up. Dress the bulbs of garlic with EVOO; season with salt and pepper. Arrange the garlic in the baking dish around the chicken. Rub the skin of the chicken with butter and season with pepper. Pour the wine into the bottom of the dish. Roast the chicken for 1 hour or until an instantread thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the dark meat reads 165 F. Let the chicken stand for a few minutes on a carving board until just cool enough to handle. Carve the chicken, dividing the white and dark parts and slicing the breast meat on the bias. Arrange the chicken on plates or a platter and top with drippings, juices and the juice from the remaining halved lemon.

Zucchini Casserole YIELD: Serves 4 INGREDIENTS: • 6 tablespoons butter • 1 small onion, diced • 3 medium zucchini, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch slices • 2 medium peeled carrots, shredded • 1 can cream of chicken soup (10 3/4 ounces) • 1/2 cup sour cream • 1 bag (8 ounces) herb seasoned stuffing mix, coarsely crushed DIRECTIONS:

In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the onion, cook until tender. Add zucchini and carrots and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Stir in cream of chicken soup and sour cream, mix well. Sprinkle half of stuffing into a 13by 9-inch greased glass baking dish. Spoon zucchini mixture on top, then remaining stuffing. Bake at 350 F for 25 to 30 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

The garlic may get dark but it won’t be charred. Serve in the skins or squeeze the paste from the skins with your knife and pass with a spoon to eat with the chicken or to slather on the warm chunks of bread.

Bake up a sweet holiday treat Sour Cream Cookies

YIELD: Makes 22 cookies INGREDIENTS: • 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled • 1 teaspoon baking powder • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt • 1⁄2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened • 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar • 1 large egg, at room temperature • 11⁄2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract • 1⁄2 cup sour cream, at room temperature

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

• 1⁄2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened • 1 1⁄2 cups powdered sugar • 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream or milk • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract • Gel food coloring (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

To make the cookies: Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt until well combined. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large mixing bowl using a handheld mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar together for 1 to 2 minutes, or until well combined. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract until fully combined, making sure to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Mix in the dry ingredients in two additions, alternating with the sour cream. Make sure to mix in each addition until just combined,

and be careful not to overmix the batter. Using a 1 1⁄2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, making sure to leave a little room between each one. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until the tops of the cookies are set and spring back when touched lightly. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes, then carefully transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. To make the vanilla buttercream frosting: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a large mixing bowl using a handheld mixer, beat the butter for 1 to 2 minutes, or until smooth. Add the powdered sugar, 1⁄2 cup at a time, mixing in each addition until well combined.

Add the heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and gel food coloring (if using), and continue mixing until fully combined. Once the cookies have cooled completely, spread the frosting on top of the cookies. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

For topping:

• fresh cranberries • sugared cranberries • rosemary sprigs • whipped cream DIRECTIONS:

To make cranberry compote: In medium saucepan, bring cranberries, brown sugar, orange juice and orange zest to boil. Lower heat and simmer 10-15 minutes, or until most cranberries burst. Remove from heat. Cool completely at room temperature then transfer to bowl; refrigerate. To make crust: Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter 8-inch springform pan and line

Easy Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

YIELD: Makes 32 cookies INGREDIENTS: • 3 cups all-purpose flour • 1 teaspoon baking powder • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt • 1 cup sugar • 1 cup cold butter, cut into chunks • 1 large egg • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract • 1⁄2 teaspoon almond extract

bottom with parchment paper. Set aside. In medium bowl, mix cracker crumbs, butter, brown sugar and salt. Press crumb mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. Reduce oven temperature to 325 F. To make cheesecake: In bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat cream cheese at medium speed until smooth. Add cane sugar and beat 2-3 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl as needed. Add flour, vanilla and salt. Beat 1 minute until incorporated. Add one egg at a time, mixing until incorporated. Add sour cream and mix 1

minute. Scrape sides of bowl as needed. In medium bowl, mix half of cheesecake batter with 1/2 cup cranberry compote. Wrap springform pan with aluminum foil and place in large roasting pan. Pour cream cheese and cranberry mixture into prepared pan. Top with remaining cream cheese batter. Place roasting pan in oven and add hot water to 1-inch of springform pan. Bake 1 hour, 15 minutes, or until cake looks set in center. Remove from oven and rest 1 hour. Refrigerate in pan overnight. Decorate cake with fresh and sugared cranberries, rosemary springs and/or whipped cream before serving.

1. Heat oven to 350 F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. 2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl; set aside. 3. Place sugar and butter into bowl of heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Beat at medium speed until well combined. Add egg, vanilla and almond extract; beat until well mixed. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed until just combined. 4. While removing dough from bowl, knead to incorporate crumbs and form smooth dough. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1⁄8-inch thickness. 5. Cut into shapes with 21⁄2-inch cookie cutter. Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until just beginning to brown around edges. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely. Tip: If planning to cut with intricate cutters, chill dough 30 minutes before rolling and cutting. This ensures the cookies will hold their detailed shape.
