Circle B Kitchen Potato Salad


You could probably close your eyes and throw a dart at any food website on the whole flippin' internet today and find a potato salad recipe. It seems about as ubiquitous a side dish as there is for the 4th of July, or any barbecue or picnic for that matter. I mean, who doesn't love a good potato salad?! The operative word there is "good". Call me picky (and I'll admit to it), but I honestly think that a good potato salad isn't all that easy to come by. I think we all sort of have our potato salad preferences, and I decided this is as good a time as any to share mine with you.

To start with, I prefer using yukon gold or another kind of waxy potato, as opposed to russets. I think that waxy potatoes hold up better and have a better salad kind of texture.



Secondly, I have a real issue with overcooked potatoes, so this recipe features a fool-proof way to cook them so that your potatoes will always come out just right. First, we're going to boil the potatoes until they're almost, but not quite done, and then we're going to let them steam to finish cooking, which ensures they'll be cooked perfectly every time.



THEN, while your potatoes are still warm, we're going to marinate them to infuse them with lots of great flavor,



and then we're going to mix those now flavorful potatoes with a creamy mixture of mayo and sour cream, some chopped celery and chopped eggs and serve up one of the best potato salads imaginable.


One of the best things about it is that it's even better the next day, so make this one a day ahead and give yourself a little extra time on your big cooking day.


I sort of feel like this post should be on an op-ed page somewhere; I can't remember when I've sounded so opinionated, and I do apologize for being so bossy. But it's potato salad, for crying out loud! We need to make it like we mean it!

I wish you a very happy, fun, and delicious 4th of July! And if you're in need of a good potato salad for your barbecue, this one pretty much rocks. In my humble opinion. :-) Here's the recipe...

Circle B Kitchen Potato Salad

This has been my go-to potato salad for like 30 years now and it never fails me. Cooking the potatoes until they’re still firm and then steaming them to finish cooking assures that your potatoes won’t be mushy and marinating them while they’re still warm adds a wonderful depth of flavor to the salad. Add just enough of the mayo/sour cream mixture to make it as creamy as you would like.

Serves 8 as a side dish

2 lbs Yukon gold or small red or white-skinned waxy potatoes (not russets)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups chopped celery
6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped

Marinade:
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 ¼ teaspoons celery salt
1 ½ teaspoons instant onion
¾ teaspoon celery seed
1 ½ teaspoons salt

If your potatoes are larger than 2 inches in diameter, cut them in half. Place the potatoes and 2 tablespoons salt in a large enough pan of water that the potatoes are completely submerged. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the potatoes are barely tender when pierced with a knife (they should still be fairly firm).

While the potatoes are cooking, mix together the marinade ingredients.

Drain the potatoes in a colander, then place the colander with the potatoes over the pot they were cooked in (off the heat), and cover with a clean, dry kitchen towel. Leave the potatoes to steam for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender but firm. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them into 1 or 2-inches chunks and place them in a large bowl and pour the marinade over them. Mix well, and then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the potatoes sit at room temperature for an hour or two to soak up the marinade.

Mix the mayonnaise and sour cream and fold into potatoes. You may not need all of the mayo mixture. Stir in the eggs and celery. Taste for salt and pepper and then refrigerate until ready to serve.

Cha Cha Bowls

It’s been nine years since we ripped off the bandaid, sold our place on the Monterey Bay in California, and settled here in the Midwest.  And for nine years we’ve done a fairly good job of becoming sort of hybrid transplants.  Our roots reach down fairly deep into this Midwestern soil now, and it is home.  But I’m not really sure how long it takes to transform one’s cultural identity, or if that ever actually totally happens.  For the most part, our lives in California have been relegated to history, except for one thing…

We will always and forever be die hard Giants fans.  We cannot, nay, will not give up our allegiance to the boys in orange and black, and every year we pay enormous sums of money to Directv and MLB so that we can get "out of market" games and watch as much Giants baseball as possible.  Yep.  I'm a "gamer babe" from several thousand miles away and grabbin' some pine in the Midwest.  We do miss those days of driving up the coast to catch a game in that beautiful stadium, PacBell, SBC, AT&T park.  Sigh.  And when it comes to ballpark food, AT&T has some pretty good eats.  Except the hot dogs.  I never could figure out why they couldn’t do a better dog.  I grew up on Dodger dogs, so the bar was set pretty high from the get go.  But fortunately, at AT&T, there are numerously awesome alternatives to just having a mediocre hot dog.  But I digress…  

For those of you who have been to AT&T park and ventured up to Orlando’s Caribbean BBQ and snagged yourself a Cha Cha bowl, you know the awesomeness of eating something crazy good and actually fairly healthy at a ball game.   Next to the garlic fries, I’m pretty sure that Orlando’s Cha Cha bowls are the best selling thing at the park (besides beer, of course), and for good reason.  They just happen to be completely delicious.  They cost like ten bucks, but each bowl weighs nearly 5 lbs, so there’s plenty in there for 2.  You could easily share one of these babies, but I'm not all that good at sharing. 

You can probably already guess my dilemma, in that getting to a game is not something we can now easily pull off.  So if we want a Cha Cha bowl, we’re going to have to rely on the Circle B Kitchen to provide.  And as it turns out, that’s not a bad thing at all.  A little internet research turned up sort of a half-assed recipe put out by Orlando’s Cha Cha people, but it was easy enough to fill in the blanks and tweak the quantities, and after a little trial and error, lo and behold, here you have it...a chance to make yourself your very own Cha Cha Bowl!  Just think of it! 

So let’s get down to the nitty gritty here.  You’re going to need some rice.  I like using brown jasmine rice, but they use white rice at the park, so pick your fave and go with it. 

Next, we’ll need some black beans and for this you’re going to want to start from scratch and infuse those beans with lots of flavor, but of course, you can use canned beans if time is not on your side. 

The beans get topped with some tender, tasty chicken that spent a good amount of time in some Caribbean jerk marinade before hitting the grill...

The chicken then gets topped with a wondrously spicy and flavorful zucchini pineapple salsa, although the last time I had one of these at the ballpark, the pineapple was nonexistent :-(, but believe me, it's not optional.

And then I added avocado chunks, fresh cilantro and lime wedges.  I don’t even need to explain my thinking there, right? 


Cha Cha bowls are completely customizable, so play with the seasonings and heat levels.  We like spicy, but not so that it sets your hair on fire, and that's what you'll get with this recipe (moderately spicy). We think good baseball and good food should be friends for life, so Go Giants!  And how 'bout a Cha Cha Bowl??  Here's the recipe...
 

Orlando Cepeda's Cha Cha Bowls

Click here for a printable recipe

The original Cha Cha bowl served at AT&T park in San Francisco (go Giants!!) didn’t include avocado, cilantro or lime wedges, but those are no-brainer additions and make these rice bowls extra delicious!  The recipe here may look rather long and involved, but each component is pretty simple to make.  Make the beans a day or two ahead of time to cut down on same day prep.  You can certainly use canned beans if you prefer, but cooking them up from their dried state brings a lot more flavor to the party.  Most jerk marinades will be fairly spicy, so adjust the heat levels of the beans and the salsa to your own preferences.  I sometimes like to chop up a poblano pepper and add it to the beans too.

Makes approximately 4 cha cha bowls

Black Beans (*see below for instructions on using canned beans)

1 lb dried black beans
½ of a large onion, cut in half through root end
2 large cloves garlic, smashed
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chile powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 or 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, chopped fine (or more to taste)
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro 

Pour the dried beans onto a baking sheet, and pick out any small stones or debris. 

Place the beans in a heavy pot and cover with about 4-5 cups of water.  Cover and bring to a boil.  

Boil for 2 minutes and then remove the pot from the heat and let it sit for about an hour and a half. 

Drain the beans.

To the same pot add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil along with the coriander, oregano, chile powder, salt and cumin.  Saute for about 2 minutes or until fragrant and then return the beans to the pot with about 3 or 4 cups of water. 

Partially cover the pot, bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat and let the beans simmer for about 2 hours. 

Remove from the heat and let the beans sit for about an hour to finish absorbing the liquid.  Taste for salt and seasonings and then stir in the cilantro.

*If using canned beans...

2 cans of black beans
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon chile powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 chipotle in adobo sauce (or more if you prefer)
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro 

Drain the beans and rinse them well.  Set aside

Heat the oil in a heavy pot over medium high heat.  Add the chopped onion and saute for until softened.  Add the garlic and the remaining spices to the oil.  Saute until fragrant, about 3 - 5 minutes and then add the beans along with 1/2 to 3/4 cups of water.  Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pot and let simmer for at least an hour, longer if possible.  

Taste the beans for salt and seasonings, adjust if needed, and stir in the cilantro.  Keep warm until ready to serve. 

Zucchini Pineapple Salsa

1 medium zucchini, grated
1 small-ish carrot, grated
1 cup diced fresh pineapple
2 (or 3) green onions, thinly sliced (white and light green parts only)
1 or 2 jalapenos, seeded and minced
½ cup chopped cilantro
¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar 

Grate the zucchini and place on a paper towel to remove some of the moisture.  Mix with the rest of the ingredients and store covered in the fridge until needed, but no longer than a couple of hours.  Bring to room temp before serving. 

Rice

You will need about 4-5 cups of cooked rice.  I like to use brown jasmine rice, but choose whatever rice you’d like.  Add 1 teaspoon of granulated garlic along with the salt to the water before adding the rice.

For the Chicken 

Note:  I used a prepared Jerk marinade, but if you’d like to make your own, here’s Bob Marley’s recipe.  A stovetop grill pan works great to cook the chicken if you can’t use an outdoor grill. 

1 ½ - 2 lbs boneless chicken breasts
1 cup Jamaican Jerk marinade 

Place the chicken in a bowl or Ziploc bag with the marinade for at least 1 hour, but preferably longer.  If marinading for longer than an hour, place in the fridge. 

Heat an outdoor grill to medium high heat and grill the chicken breasts until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on their thickness.  Do not overcook the meat.  (These can easily be grilled on a stovetop grill pan) 

Let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes and then cut into large-ish chunks. 

To Serve:

1 large or 2 medium avocados, diced
chopped fresh cilantro
Lime wedges 
 

Place some rice in the bottom of each bowl.  Top the rice with some beans and then the chunks of chicken.  Top this with a good amount of the zucchini salsa and then the diced avocado and a good sprinkle of chopped fresh cilantro.  Serve with lime wedges.

Lemon Muffins with Blueberries

There has been an ongoing, heated debate in the Circle B Kitchen lo these past few days.  And when I say “in the Circle B Kitchen”, I mostly mean in my head.  And the heated argument has mostly to do with what to call these very special little muffins. 

They were originally billed as blueberry muffins, because, of course they contain blueberries, but the more I make them, the less I want to present them to you as a blueberry muffin and there are a couple of reasons for that. 

The first is that if you were to go look in your recipe file right now, I bet you’d find no less than 5 recipes for blueberry muffins (probably more).  And if you only have one, then it’s probably because it’s your very favorite and you’re not ready to welcome any newcomers there.  I mean, everyone has their go-to blueberry muffin, right?  And if not, you could probably right now go online and choose from 400,000 different blueberry muffin recipes.  So that would make this one instantly superfluous, no?  I think yes, and you would just move on.  And that would be a terrible shame. 

The second reason is that if you were to make these muffins, you would not instantly go “mmmmmm… blueberries”.  No, you would instantly, go “LEMON!!  Yay!!  This muffin is so deliciously lemony!”  And then you would totally enjoy the blueberries because they’re awesomely good in there too. 

So for those reasons, I have made the executive decision to change the name of these succulent little pods of lemony goodness to Lemon Muffins with Blueberries.  Are you a tad more interested now?  I hope so.  I guess that would depend on whether you are into lemon muffins, but this is the risk I take.  Gladly. 

Now that we’ve settled the nomenclature issue, let me attempt to describe these impossibly tender little muffin morsels to you.  I’ve already mentioned the first thing you will notice if you eat one while it’s still warm from the oven… tender and sort of pillowy.  Then, yes, lemony, but it’s the topping that’s the real showstopper here. 

After you have baked these muffins, you are going to brush them with a lemon-syrup glaze

and then you’re going to dunk them into a pile of lemon-sugar

which is going to have the effect of a two-ton mack truck full of lemons crashing head on into your mouth at full speed, which (cue the screeching brakes)… sorry.  

These really are some very special little muffins, and I’ve been serving them almost every weekend for the last month or two (almost) and The Husband has not tired of them yet.  Nor have I.  In fact, we will be having them probably a whole lot more weekends to come, cuz they really are my muffin crush right now and I just don’t feel like I need to apologize for that.  For every one I eat, I want 3 more, so I just thought maybe you’d like to try them.  Here’s the recipe…

Lemon Muffins with Blueberries

Click here for a printable recipe

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 large egg
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 ¼ cups sour cream or yogurt
1 ½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries 

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray standard muffin tin with nonstick vegetable cooking spray.

Whisk flour, baking powder, lemon zest and salt in medium bowl until combined.  

Whisk egg in second medium bowl until well-combined and light-colored, about 20 seconds.  Add sugar and whisk vigorously until thick and homogenous, about 30 seconds; add melted butter in 2 or 3 steps, whisking to combine after each addition.  Add sour cream or yogurt in 2 steps, whisking just to combine.

Add blueberries to dry ingredients and gently toss to combine.  Add sour cream mixture to the dry ingredients and fold with a rubber spatula until batter comes together and berries are evenly distributed.  Do not overmix - O.K. to have small spots of flour or thick batter.

Use an ice cream scoop or large spoon to drop batter into greased muffin tin.  Bake until light golden brown and toothpick or skewer inserted into center of muffin comes out clean, 25 or 30 minutes, rotating pan from front to back halfway through baking time.  

Remove muffins from the pan and cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before applying the glaze.

Lemon Glaze
Bring ¼ cup lemon juice and ¼ cup sugar to simmer in small saucepan over medium heat; simmer until mixture is thick and syrupy and reduced to about 4 T (this should take about 5-6 minutes). 

Lemon Sugar Topping
While muffins are baking, mix 1 tsp grated lemon zest and ½ cup sugar in small bowl and set aside.

After muffins have cooled 5 minutes, brush tops with glaze, then, working one at a time, dip tops of muffins in lemon-sugar.  Set muffins upright on wire rack.  Serve warm or room temperature.

Crepes with Asparagus and Gruyere Cheese

 

We’ve only got one week left of spring and I can hardly bear the fact that I’m only just now talking to you about these asparagus crepes.  Sure, we can get asparagus practically year-round now, but there’s just something about those first bundles that appear in early spring with their fat, flavorful stalks.  I am powerless to resist, and buy them with abandon the minute I spot them in early June. 

As luck would have it, we’ve had an abundance of asparagus this year because, in addition to the bundles I keep on hand in the fridge, my daughter brought us a bag from a friend’s garden that couldn’t have been any less than 5 lbs of fresh-out-of-the-ground spears.  Lordy, but that was some good asparagus!   I now have several containers of asparagus pesto in the freezer, just waiting for some al dente linguini; 2 jars of pickled asparagus in the fridge; and some crepes just waiting to be filled with barely blanched asparagus spears and grated Gruyere cheese, rolled and baked with a little more of that cheese on top until slightly crispy, but still sort of soft and oh so incredibly delectable. 

This really is how we we’ve eaten most of that gorgeous asparagus, and I will tell you in all honestly that this stuff is so good, that even though I’ve made them several times this past week, the few spears of asparagus left in the fridge will be donated to the filling of more crepes.  We are besotted and infatuated and have no plans to desist. 

The recipe for these asparagus crepes is one I’ve been making for years.  They’ve shown up at many a holiday table as a side dish, but recently I’ve been making them smaller and serving them up at happy hour.  We’re so hooked it’s not even funny.  They really are easy to make, but serve up so elegantly and would be equally awesome as a side for a special dinner or a casual barbecue.  And because they can also be the perfect little finger food, they really do make a great hors d’oeuvre. 

OK then, people.  I hope you’re duly inspired.  Get your crepes made and your cheese grated; asparagus season is still in full swing and these things aren’t going to make themselves.  Here’s the recipe…

Crepes with Asparagus and Gruyere Cheese

Click here for a printable recipe without photos

Makes 10 side dish servings or 20 appetizer servings

For the Crepes:
½ cup milk
2 eggs
6 tablespoons warm water
2tablespoons melted butter
¼ tsp salt
½ cup flour

2 cups grated Gruyere cheese
3 scallions, chopped (optional)
20 asparagus spears, trimmed to 6 inch lengths

Blend the first 5 crepe ingredients together and then whisk in the flour.  Cover and let sit while you prepare the asparagus.

Blanch the asparagus in boiling salted water for 2 minutes (no longer). 

Place in a bowl of  ice water to stop the cooking and set aside.

Melt a teaspoon or 2 of butter in a 6-inch non-stick pan (I use nonstick cooking spray).  Pour about 3 tablespoons of the crepe batter into the hot pan.  Swirl to cover pan.  Cook for about a minute or until the edges begin to loosen and the top looks dry-ish.  

Run the edge of a thin spatula around the edge of the crepe to loosen, and then flip the crepe over and  cook an additional  minute or so. Continue with the rest of the crepe batter, keeping the crepes covered as you make them so they won't dry out.

To assemble, take one crepe and sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of the grated Gruyere cheese evenly over the crepe

and then place 2 asparagus spears in each crepe (if making for a side dish; use 1 asparagus spear if making for an appetizer), and roll up tightly.  

OR

Place in a buttered casserole.  

Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and sliced scallions (if using).  Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.

Spaghetti With Clams in Parchment

I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for most anything served up in a little parchment packet, but whoa, people, you gotta grab yourselves some clams and get this done.  Boy howdy, is it ever something special.  I mean, who wouldn’t get excited about their own personal packet of deliciousness in which al dente strands of pasta soak up an incredibly flavorful broth that’s created as your clams cook, tucked into their parchment wrapper with wine, garlic, green onions and crushed red pepper.  That was a very long sentence, but deservedly so… this is just lovely stuff, folks.  

Now if you’ve never cooked with clams before, nothing could be easier.  Just make sure your clams are fresh – they should be closed when you buy them.  If you have a reputable fish monger, this shouldn’t be a problem.  Keep them on ice in the fridge until you’re ready to use them.  I’ve kept them for a couple of days with no ill effects.  Do not seal them in a plastic bag or container – the little guys need to breathe.  Until it's time to kill them.  Geez.

Now, clams also need to be cleaned before you use them cuz they usually have a little sand in them, but this, too, is quite easy.  Right before you cook them, place them in a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes to an hour and they’ll just spit the sand out.  Cute, huh?  Some people add cornmeal or salt to the water, but I just used plain cold water and it always gets em clean.  If any of your clams are open, give them a gentle tap on the counter; if they don’t close, toss em.  They’re goners.  Likewise, if any of them stay closed after cooking, give em the heave ho.  Not good eats. 

And that’s all you need to know about cooking with clams.  Except the actual cooking of them, that is.  And again, this is super easy cuz it only takes about 5 to 7 minutes for them to cook, open, and offer up their briny goodness. 

And oh, what goodness it is.  Linguini with clams is one of my dearest food crushes (here’s my recipe), but Mr. Vetri (Rustic Italian Food) has elevated this classic to something rather extraordinary.  This is pretty tasty stuff; I think you’ll be as happy and amazed as we were.  Here’s the recipe…

Spaghetti with Clams in Parchment 

Click here for a printable recipe

The flavors created inside these parchment packets is really quite extraordinary.  The pasta soaks up all of that flavor and makes for one very tasty dish.  Store your clams on ice in the refrigerator (in an open bag or bowl) for up to 2 days before using them.  When ready to cook them, soak the clams in cold water for about an hour to rid them of any sand or grit.

Recipe by Marc Vetri (Rustic Italian Food)

1 pound refrigerated extruded spaghetti, or 12 ounces boxed dried spaghetti
8 tablespoons olive oil
4 scallions, trimmed and top quarter removed, sliced crosswise
4 cloves garlic, smashed
50 to 60 small clams, cleaned (I like to use little neck clams - about 6 or 7 per person)
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop in the pasta, quickly return to a boil, and cook until slightly underdone and chewy, 1 to 6 minutes, depending on how long it has been refrigerated (or 7 to 8 minutes for the boxed stuff). Drain the pasta, reserving the pasta water. 

Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the scallions and garlic and cook until soft but not browned, about 3 minutes. Add the clams, wine, pepper flakes, and water. Cover and simmer until the liquid reduces in volume by about half, 5 minutes. When the clams have opened, discard the garlic and any empty clam shells. 

Add the drained pasta to the pan along with the remaining 6 tablespoons olive oil and the parsley. Cook over medium heat, tossing until the sauce gets a little creamy. 

Tear 4 sheets of parchment paper, each about 2 feet long. Place one-fourth of the pasta mixture in the center of each sheet of parchment. Bring the long sides of the parchment up above the pasta so the edges meet. Fold the edges together and keep folding down until tight over the pasta. Flip over and pull each side of parchment over the center to make a tight packet. Flip back over so the folded seam side is up. 

Transfer the packets to a baking sheet and bake until the paper browns lightly, 
5 to 7 minutes. If you have convection, turn it on to help the paper brown. Transfer to plates and allow guests to slit open the packets lengthwise with a knife. (We just unwrap them).
