These bark cookies have a coconut/pecan/chocolate chip topping. They are so easy to make, which is a good thing because they don't last long! The recipe is similar to one I found in Martha Stewart's Food Everyday magazine. This recipe is a great way to use up those Southern U.S. pecans.
This is a fantastic and different way to roast potatoes. It's great with grilled or roasted chicken and was featured in Martha Stewart Living with trout. From Martha's magazine: "Oregano is Greek for "joy of the mountain." Greek oregano has a more mild flavor than the Mexican variety usually found in the spice aisle of your supermarket. Look for Greek oregano at Italian or Greek markets." (Or you can order it from www.penzeys.com, a wonderful herb and spice shop.) Enjoy!
Each summer, many lobsters tough shells are replaced by thin ones. These lobsters, called shedders, are a delight to eat it takes no effort to get at the tail and claw meat. Still, i t is smart to keep a pair of crackers at hand, just in case. Boiling lobsters in court-bouillon, a staple for poaching seafood, makes them quite flavorful in the absence of seawater.
