I adopted this recipe and have not yet tried it. I also have a fear of yeast, but believe that Mean Chef's original pizza dough would work well for this recipe (recipe #62554). The original chef recommended another crust that was supposed to be so good your head would spin, but I trust Mean Chef's recipe. Original intro comments are: "This is a great combination. Try it! The tomato mixture is enough for two 12 inch pizzas. Adjust accordingly depending on how many pizzas you are interested in making."
The balsamic butter mixture turns these potatoes a nice, dark brown, and is delicious! You can make the butter ahead of time, chill it, then re-warm (30 sec in the microwave) and toss it with the potatoes just before serving. From Cooking Light, March 2005.
filet mignon is my favorite cut of beef, and i travel to philadelphia's italian market to a butcher who knows how to cut it right. this is yet another easy way to serve this delectable steak, from food network.
Light and flavorful, this vinaigrette in another favorite of ours. We visited the CIA in Greystone a few years back and they used it to dress greens and served them in a parmesan bowl like the one in recipe #100637. What a wonderful combination!
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.
This version of Carrot Slaw was adapted from three different recipes, and a big hit at a dinner party, with an immediate recipe request. There are some big flavors in these carrots, and this is actually better the next day.
Some time ago I bought white balsamic vinegar. I use a lot of dark balsamic vinegar and thought it would be nice to see what I could make with the white. Somewhere I read that fruit goes well with this. Tried it and this is the result. Quite nice if I may say so myself.
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.
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.
A small spin on a classic Italian dessert. This excellent summer dessert takes no time at all to prepare and is always a cool and refreshing pleaser. Be sure to use a good balsamic vinegar - remember your recipes are only as good as your ingredients!
This grilled dish, made with sweet potatoes and zucchini, gets its wonderful flavor from balsamic vinegar. It's easy to cook because you just pop it all into a foil packet. The amounts of vegetables can easily be increased for more people, since it has plenty of juice. I also enjoy making this with regular potatoes! This was created for RSC #6.
