Better Homes & Gardens January 2018 Recipes
Habanero Beef Tacos
If you're a fan of spice and short ribs, you'll be in heaven when you try these slow cooker braised beef tacos. Habaneros err on the h-o-t side, so stick to one if you prefer your meals more mild.
Classic Buttermilk Pancakes
Pancakes are the ultimate brunch comfort food. But as simple as the classic recipe is, it's just as simple to trip up on and get far-from-fluffy hotcakes. Follow our foolproof method and pick your perfect topping (cinnamon pears or fig and proscuitto, anyone?) and you'll never be afraid of the morning meal mainstay again.
Boozy Orange Crème Brûlée
This whiskey-spiked dessert is unlike any crème brûlée you've ever tasted before. With a caramel base, a cream filling studded with kumquats and oranges, plus a crunchy, sweet topping, it's decadent with a capital "D".
Pan-Seared Salmon with Kumquats
Who says cold-weather dinner recipes have to be casseroles or stews? Kumquats—sour, citruslike fruits—peak November through March. Once caramelized, they showcase their often-hidden natural sugars and give this colorful supper pops of gold. This seafood recipe is easy enough for a weeknight and showy enough for a dinner party all at once!
Citrus Couscous Salad
This pasta salad showcases the versatility of oranges. Zest infuses both the couscous and the oil that tops the salad, while orange segments and juice are tossed with the circular pasta pieces. Finish with onion slices, hazelnuts, and olives and you'll think of those big bags of oranges at the supermarket very differently from now on! (In other words, not just for juice and snacking as-is.)
Bacon, sage, and clementines make every ounce of this roast chicken recipe taste off-the-charts incredible. Spoon a citrus vinaigrette over the chicken as it cooks, then squeeze a fresh clementine over the crispy chicken just before slicing for extra freshness.
Tuscan Tortellini Soup
Fennel and oregano in the broth mixture, plus Parmesan sprinkled on top, give this slow cooker tortellini soup its location-specific name. Try it with any stuffed pasta (even ravioli) you like—we love spinach-cheese tortellini.
Blood Orange and Beet Upside-Down Tart
Think of this fruit and vegetable tart like a side dish version of a pineapple-upside down cake. Bake it pastry side up for a crispy crust, then flip and serve to reveal the honey-soaked beets and blood oranges.
Sausage and Sweet Pepper Hash
Wake up to a better breakfast by tossing the ingredients for this chicken sausage, red potato, and sweet pepper hash in your slow cooker before bed. Or serve it alongside an omelet as a hands-off breakfast for dinner option.
Roasted Carrots and Oranges
After just one bite of this sensational side, you'll never serve plain old steamed carrots again. Roast oranges and carrots in one big pan, then toss with a dressing that's equal parts sweet (courtesy of blended dates) and spicy (we see you, chipotle pepper and paprika).
