This is another recipe from my Italian sister in law. Its good with Italian crusty bread to mop up the broth. Prep time includes soaking. Based on some queries from other chefs, I'm expanding the directions to include more information about buying, storing and cleaning mussels.
Putting here to make soon, so I haven't actually made it yet - but I have faith in it and can't wait to try! It came from icancookthat.org blog. Went looking for Saffron Cream sauce recipe after discovering it today (served on grilled Mahi-Mahi, sauteed spinach, and gnocchi)
I don't think I've found a way to prepare potatoes that I don't like. They're all good. Mashed potatoes, in particular, just screams "comfort food" to me. When a holiday or special occasion comes around, I like to turn to this recipe just to dress things up a bit. Sounds a little fancier, but tastes delicious.
This is my "summer Tiramisu" The original recipe uses one packet of sponge fingers, but I use more to get more coverage on this size of tin. I also added the lemon zest and find it is not too tart, you can leave it out of course if you are not sure about it. You don't have to make this in a spring form pan, if you like to scoop it out of a dish, use whatever suits you. I sometimes use trifle sponges or plain cake instead of the sponge fingers. Oh... the lemons are low fat and very healthy!
Crook's Corner is a restaurant in Chapel Hill, NC. This is a dish served at the restaurant and I found the recipe in the latest Southern Living magazine. I made this last night for dinner and my husband and I went nuts for it, it's the ultimate comfort food. Don't let the long list of ingredients throw you off, this goes together quickly and easily.
This is a wonderful dinner-party dish...In the spirit of lightening up my recipes, this one still tastes great using less butter and either half-and-half or fat-free half-and-half in place of the heavy cream.
Did a restaurant dish ever inspire? Well, Bonefish Grill inspired The Gourmand Mom (blog) to recreate their fontina pork chop dish. Note: Bonefish's recipe is not breaded, but I believe this recipe is adaptable by simply browning the chops without the breading and continuing on.
Not really paella, but I couldn't think of another name! A great dish I made up tonight, using ingredients on hand. Use whatever you like - I left out a few things of this version and it was great! My 2 year old (very picky) put the first bite in his mouth and said "YUM!" and my husband went back for 4ths! Add as much lemon juice as you like, my husband liked less than I did, so letting guests decide their amount by serving lemon wedges or juice on the side. This amount I made, would serve 4.
This chicken in cream sauce recipe, famously known as volaille a la crème in the Bresse region, is delicious in its simplicity. Brown high-quality chicken in butter and then simmer it in a cream sauce. That’s all there is to it! Another recipe found on about.com for ZWT, French region.
This is Ina's variation on her Grown-Up Mac & Cheese (recipe #281825) and I have had it for a few years and decided to share it today, as I'm making it again this Sunday. Barefoot Contessa at www.housebeautiful.com/0907
