Summer Tomato Pie

 1014136 (1)
Recipe By:Elizabeth
“This is a simple but delicious side dish. It could also be a main course for a vegetarian. It’s great for using all those wonderful summer tomatoes from the garden! You can change the cheeses to fit your taste as well as the seasoning. Blue cheese and fennel, Swiss cheese and thyme, Gouda and dill, whatever your favorites are.”


  • 1 recipe pastry for a single 9-inch pie crust
  • 3 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced


  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie pan; prick bottom and sides with fork.
  3. Bake crust in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool completely.
  4. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Place tomatoes in a single layer of a colander; sprinkle with salt. Let sit for about 10 minutes to release moisture. Blot excess moisture with a paper towel. Arrange 1 layer of tomato slices around the bottom of the cooled pie crust, overlapping the slices. Sprinkle half the garlic and half the basil onto tomato layer. Sprinkle half the Cheddar cheese and half the mozzarella cheese over basil layer. Repeat layering with remaining tomatoes, garlic, basil, Cheddar cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Spread mayonnaise over the top mozzarella cheese layer.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.


Perfect Pot Roast


4 hr 30 min
15 min
4 hr 15 min
6 servings




Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • One 3- to 5-pound chuck roast
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 whole onions, peeled and halved
  • 6 to 8 whole carrots, unpeeled, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup red wine, optional
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 or 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 or 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Directions

    Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

    Generously salt and pepper the chuck roast.

    Heat the olive oil in large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the halved onions to the pot, browning them on both sides. Remove the onions to a plate.

    Throw the carrots into the same very hot pot and toss them around a bit until slightly browned, about a minute or so. Reserve the carrots with the onions.

    If needed, add a bit more olive oil to the very hot pot. Place the meat in the pot and sear it for about a minute on all sides until it is nice and brown all over. Remove the roast to a plate. 

    With the burner still on high, use either red wine or beef broth (about 1 cup) to deglaze the pot, scraping the bottom with a whisk. Place the roast back into the pot and add enough beef stock to cover the meat halfway.

    Add in the onions and the carrots, along with the fresh herbs.

    Put the lid on, then roast for 3 hours for a 3-pound roast. For a 4 to 5-pound roast, plan on 4 hours. The roast is ready when it’s fall-apart tender.

Chipotle Beef Tamales

Chipotle Beef Tamales

Chipotle sauce is a spicy puree of tomatoes, chipotle chile peppers, and adobo sauce, and it gives the filling a mild, smoky heat.
  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 2 tamales)
  • Ingredients

    • 24 dried corn husks
    • Cooking spray
    • 1 cup chopped onion
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 pound ground sirloin
    • 1 (7-ounce) can chipotle sauce
    • 4 1/2 cups Basic Masa Dough
    • 2 cups hot water


    1. Place corn husks in a large bowl; cover with water. Weight husks down with a can; soak 30 minutes. Drain husks.

    2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add oregano, salt, and beef; cook 8 minutes or until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Add chipotle sauce; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

    3. Preheat oven to 450°.

    4. Working with one husk at a time, place about 3 tablespoons Basic Masa Dough in the center of husk about 1/2 inch from top of husk; press dough into a 4-inch-long by 3-inch-wide rectangle. Spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon beef mixture down one side of dough. Using the corn husk as your guide, fold husk over tamale, being sure to cover filling with dough; fold over 1 more time. Fold bottom end of husk under. Place tamale, seam side down, on the rack of a broiler pan lined with a damp towel. Repeat procedure with remaining husks, Basic Masa Dough, and filling. Cover filled tamales with another damp towel. Pour 2 cups hot water in the bottom of a broiler pan; top with prepared rack.
