Starky’s Chicken Enchilada Soup Recipe

Starky’s Chicken Enchilada Soup Nothing speaks to chilly weather like a steamy, hearty bowl of spicy soup!  It simmers a bit on the stove and creates an unstoppable “yum” aroma in your kitchen.  We like it packed with cooked chicken, but it’s a cinch to use veggie stock and delete the chicken for a vegetarian soup.  Go a step further for a vegan adaptation and replace the butter with all vegetable oil in the roux.   Using rice flour makes it gluten free for our people who don’t touch the wheat.   There is huge flavor packed in the ingredients so those options will render a super tasty soup.  In the Starky kitchen, we roast our own pasilla peppers over an open gas flame which gives rich, authentic flavor to the soup.  In a pinch, you can use canned green chilis.  The ingredient list seems long, but it goes into the soup fast and you don’t have to be disciplined with uniform chopping as the soup gets pureed with an immersion blender or a regular high speed blender.   Just be careful when using hot liquids in a blender, they tend to blow the top off if you fill it too full or let the steam build up.  We position a towel on top and start the blending on low speed.  As with most soups, they taste better when allowed to sit overnight for all the flavors to heighten but you can serve this one as soon as it is hot and ready.    Load it up with toppings such as tortilla strips, cheese, scallions, cilantro, sour cream, super thin jalapeno slices, or... read more

Starky’s Lazy Sunday Apple Butter Recipe

There is nothing quite like picking apples from your own apple tree.  We giggle as we hang on a rickety ladder surrounded by delightfully perfect red orbs    Rational thought tells you not to extend beyond your reach, but that one unattainable apple beckons from a high branch …pick me now!  Luckily, no injuries occur and baskets of apples are transported to the test kitchen as we prepare to test a few recipes that have waited for harvest.  Today’s project:  create massive amounts of deep caramel colored apple butter!  The day was cloudy with chilly weather  moving in so why not settle into the cozy kitchen and spend a little time cooking for colder days ahead.  This method could not be more simple.  There is a small amount of attention towards the end of cooking time, but other than that, you simply load the crockpot and turn it on.  You will swoon for hours as your home fills with the aroma of cinnamon, ginger and apples as they cook gently down.   Dreams of apple butter on toast, apple butter bbq sauce on wings, and pork loin with apple butter & cabbage become a reality.  Here’s your recipe from the Starky Test Kitchen this week! Crockpot Spiced Apple Butter Ingredients: 3-4 lbs of baking apples, or as many will fit in your crock pot, such as Gala, MacIntosh,  Rome or Jonagold 1 cup filtered water 1 tablespoon cinnamon 1 tablespoon ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon clove 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg pinch of sea salt honey if desired to taste Wash all of your apples.  Using an apple corer/slicer if you have one,  cut... read more

Challah Bread Stuffing for your Thanksgiving Feast!

From our Family Recipe Book to yours:  Our Famous Starky Challah Bread Stuffing for Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is kind of a huge deal in our house.  We’ve been hosting Thanksgiving dinner for so many years and although new dishes might make an occasional appearance, the tried and true family recipes prevail.  Making challah from scratch has been a family activity since I can remember and nothing smells better coming out of the oven.  It never lasts long and gets demolished the same day…sometimes without any butter or jam.  Grandpa Saul always proclaimed about the challah in his booming, craggy voice;  “it eats like cake!”  For the Thanksgiving feast, there is no better bread to use for stuffing than challah.  It’s eggy, slightly sweet, and has a dense texture that holds up to gravy. Since we have to be genius about oven space on Thanksgiving Day, we went way outside the box and tried cooking the stuffing in a crock pot last year.  Skeptical, we held our breath and watched as the stuffing puffed up, browned up nicely on the edges and was held on warm while everything else baked in the oven.  It got a little baste of turkey drippings at the end and then was tasted-oh my!  The stuffing was tender & moist and served right out of the crock pot vessel which kept it nice and warm for the second wave.  We share this method with you as it sure did save time, pans and space when you are in high gear to get this dinner on your Thanksgiving table! Our challah recipe is not listed here; they... read more

Orange Garlic Shrimp Recipe from the Starky’s Test Kitchen

This week’s inspiration came from an unlikely place…the bottom drawer of our home refrigerator. You know those adorable little clementine oranges that you purchase in big quantities in the netted bag? We love to buy those, eat about 3 and then forget about them. Weeks later there they sit, too cute to throw out, too mushy to eat, just taking up space. So the question is:   “What can you do with over-the-hill mini oranges?” The answer came when we were discussing making dried porcini mushroom “dust” to coat lamb chops. What if we dried the clementine peels in the oven, pulverized the peels and used them as a dry rub? As fate would have it, we came across a Bon Appetite article about dehydrated fruit peel and vegetable “powders”…we knew we had to try it with those aged little clementines. Maybe something amazing would happen.   Bingo! We peeled (easily) all the old clementines, juiced all the oranges (for smoothies), and spread the misshapen peels on a parchment paper lined baking sheet with sides. The peels took about 3 hours to dry completely in a 200 degree convection oven. They must be very dry and brittle as any remaining moisture would prevent them from being ground into a powder. This will vary depending on your oven and the thickness of the peels. They should “crack” when you break one in half.   The aroma in your house will be insane. The equipment you need to finish the job is a cheapy coffee grinder. We had an old one from years ago, but you can pick one up in... read more

Cinnamon Scones from the Test Kitchen

This week the Starky’s Test Kitchen is bringing you a little sweet breakfast treat to surprise your Valentine! We make scones often at Starky’s and they are buttery, light, and super flavorful. Usually we follow the same simple recipe and just play around with additions of chocolate, cheese, nuts, or fruits. It’s great way to kick off the day with a steamin’ hot cup of Joe. The Test Kitchen usually would not even think of offering a “healthier” treat considering the decadence of Valentine’s day. But, recently we have been watching our health a little more closely. We still want deliciousness, texture, and overall satisfaction with our baked goods, but here and there we can add some more healthful elements/additions/substitutions to make what we eat just a little better for us. This is not your traditional scone…it has some ingredients that the purists will not like. The texture is crunchy on the outside with a  soft crumb that is almost muffin-like inside. It hit all our buttons for a perfect breakfast treat. We’d like to share with you our healthier version of a simple scone recipe! <h1>Cinnamon Cottage Cheese Scones</h1> 1 cup 4% cottage cheese 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup white flour ½ cup whole wheat flour ½ cup oats 1 tablespoon baking powder ½ teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar (we use the organic here) 5 Tablespoons butter-cut into small pieces and kept very cold ½ cup cinnamon baking chips (we used Hershey) Schmoo: This is the glaze that we brush on top of our scones and muffins…it is optional, but gives baked goods a shiny, crackly... read more
