This salsa has been a hit at several of our BBQs. Our friends have said they've never had anything like it before and it was devoured! We typically roast the corn for this recipe on the outdoor grill. From the Black Dog Tavern's Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook.
DH and I made these as a dessert for a dinner party where we would be served Merlot. Everyone loved them. This is from my book, "The Wine Club" by Maureen Petrosky. I am posting the recipe as it is written, however, DH and I baked our pears, having already halved them, as we could not fit them into the 8X8X2-inch baking dish whole. This worked out fine.
According to the recipe, these pears will serve 12 if halved, and 24 if cut into quarters.
A friend gave this recipe to me from one of her cookbooks. It did not remind me of chili in the thick sense that I usually think of it (the sauce is definitely on the thinner side). However, I found it has really nice flavor and lots of veggies. My friend typically serves this dish over rice.
We made this filling soup from recent (December 2010?) issue of Bon Appetit. The soup calls for French green lentils, which are small, dark green, and speckled with black. We found them at a specialty foods store. It is suggested that you begin with 2 Tb of your favorite curry powder (we used Madras) and then add more according to your taste. We liked the idea of adding pureed chickpeas to the soup, which makes it different from other lentil soups we've seen. It thickens the soup without adding the calories you might get from a flour roux or heavy cream. The recipe says it makes 6 servings, but DH and I were very hungry today at lunch and ate the entirety, so I am listing it as 4.
From my new "Garlic Lovers' Greatest Hits--20 Years of Prize-winning Recipes from the Gilroy Garlic Festival" book. According to the book, this chicken dish was unanimously selected as the First Place Winner in the first Great Garlic Recipe Contest and Cook-off. DH and I made this for dinner a few nights ago and thought it was really good. However, we would have liked more sauce. We are not sure if it reduced too quickly and we need to be more careful for next time or if we should double the sauce recipe. We used chicken breasts instead of a frying chicken and served over Udon noodles. I should mention that I always use reduced sodium soy sauce (I prefer San-J Tamari).
Served this recipe from Williams-Sonoma last night for dinner. It was so good!! I made the mistake of using leftover hamburger buns instead of following the directions of using sourdough rolls, which would have stood up better to the sauce, resulting in a soggy burger. This did not affect the wonderful taste, I just would not make this mistake again. I used an 18-year old balsamic vinegar from Fustini's in this dish and it was wonderful. I also used my grill pan instead of the BBQ owing to the weather. It worked well. According to the recipe, the sandwiches can be served warm (which we did) or chilled. Prep time includes marinating time.
I got this recipe a long time ago on another site. I found it to be an easy dish to prepare with nice flavor. It is good for a beginner chef. I serve this over angel hair pasta, tossed with olive oil, garlic cloves and parmesan cheese.
This recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens and DH and I liked it very much. The burgers had great flavor and consistency. DH said so far, this has been the best meatless burger recipe we have made to date. Instead of using the country Italian bread, we just used hamburger buns. We chopped the parsley. We did not top with the Easy Tomato Sauce.
DH and I have made this dish for dinner on several occasions and think it is delicious. It is another winner from Keiko O Aiko's "Easy and Healthy Japanese Food for the American Kitchen." What really makes the dish is the sliced onions--don't be afraid to use more!! One thing to watch out for is that the thin chops tend to dry up quickly and the sauce reduces quickly, which can leave you wanting for more sauce. We have also used thick chops with great results. I should mention that I always use reduced sodium soy sauce (I prefer San-J Tamari).
This delicious recipe comes from Cook's Illustrated. DH and I made these cookies for Christmas and everyone raved about them. According to Cook's Illustrated, the dough will keep in the refrigerator for up to three days or in the freezer for up to two weeks. The cookies are best eaten the day they are glazed. Prep time does not include the 45 minutes dough is in freezer (or 2 hrs refrigerated) or one hour cooling time.
This recipe is credited to Marie Saba from the Aug/Sept 2011 "Taste of Home" magazine, who makes this dish when she and her husband have a date night. DH and I made it last night and loved it. My curry powder tends to be on the hotter side, which gave it a nice kick. We served over jasmine rice.
DH and I enjoyed this pork chop recipe from my Williams-Sonoma "Steak and Chops" cookbook. It's easy to prepare, without a lot of prep. We used vermouth. Prep time includes the at least 15 minute resting time for the meat at room temp.
This recipe is from the Black Dog Tavern's "Summer on the Vineyard" Cookbook. This marinade is great on grilled fish, such as salmon, bluefish, swordfish, or tuna. DH and I made this the other night to marinate our swordfish. We thought it was excellent as well as quick and easy. The cookbook also states that the marinade can be used to season cooked fish or vegetables as well.
