This is a very easy pasta sauce, especially nice to make on busy nights. The basic recipe was adapted from the "Bon Appetit" November 2002 issue. The balsamic vinegar raises the sauce to a level above ordinary. It's a good sauce to play around with to make it your own.
This is based on a recipe from Second Helpings from Union Square Cookbook. Much to the dismay of family and friends, I could never learn to appreciate asparagus. It always reminded me somehow of eating grass. But I tried this recipe and finally found a way to love asparagus. This is incredibly simple, but the combination is superb. Spending the extra to get true fleur de sel is really worth it for this dish.
Yummy side dish. We especially enjoy it in the fall and winter. Great comfort food. The cooking time sounds like its way too long, but it produces an incredible texture and really lets the seasonings incorporate in to food.
The mustard idea I got from Wolfgang Puck on a recipe he used with Ribeyes. I substittuded sauted onion rings for fried,pork for beef, added the shrooms and tomato. Came out fantastic, with requests to do it again.
Fire up your grill for this elegant and tasty summer meal. The balsamic glaze can be made up to a week ahead and kept until you're ready to use it. This is quick and easy to make but also very impressive. My entry in the "Ready, Set, Cook" competition.
This super tasty recipe came from a co-worker who's wealthy family always made sure to serve this at their fancy summer parties. It is a snap to put together, making it perfect for families who want a meal in a hurry, or the host of party who wants something spectacular that won't keep them in the kitchen instead of with their guests. Either way, you will get the same rave reviews that I have over the years.
This is a quick and easy recipe that never fails to please even my picky DDs. Since chicken thighs are usually inexpensive it makes a economical meal. I like to serve these with some type of rice side dish and a green salad.
