My boyfriend, Bill, cannot get enough of this cake, which I would venture to say is his all-time favorite! I finally decided to post it for all the pumpkin-lovers out there! It is very easy to make, and is a nice alternative on your Thanksgiving or holiday dessert table.

This is a very tasty breakfast/brunch dish! For variation, I have added grated sharp cheddar cheese right on top of the English Muffin before adding anything else. I can see many variations of this simple dish. Normally I bake my bacon, but for this recipe I fry it as you need to use a pan anyway. I also use half and half instead of the cream. From Bon Appetit.

Very simple to make, and absolutely delicious, everyone raves about it and always wants the recipe! I highly suggest to make 2 days ahead (or at least 1 day) as the flavors only get better with time, plus you may want to skim off the excess fat, so plan ahead. This also makes it perfect for a do-ahead dinner. I use half beef broth, half chicken broth for more depth. Any good red wine will do, the additional 1/2 cup of broth may not be necessary, use your judgement. Reducing the sauce down after removing the solids enriches the flavors, add a bit more salt and reduce for about 45 minutes before serving. I have also used a boneless chuck roast, cutting it up into approx. 12 to 14 large chunks. (the size of a short rib). This is less expensive and there is less fat, more meat, but we still like the short rib method! I also urge very strongly to serve with your favorite mashed potato recipe, the sauce is to die for! This is adapted from Bon Appetit, Jan. 2002.

This is a nice salad dish for the holiday season or special dinner. Much of this can be made ahead...a real time-saver! They suggest saving the poaching liquid for a spiced-wine spritzer or served warm as mulled wine. I tried the wine spritzer and it was very refreshing. From Bon Appetit December, 2009.

Recipe #435721

This is a wonderful and easy brunch dish...or anytime for that matter! The potatoes get brown and crispy around the edges. I have served this with bacon or sausage for breakfast, or a simple green salad as well. You do need to keep an eye on the eggs, they can overcook fast, I check mine at 10 minutes. The hash brown portion can be made up to 2 hours ahead, keep in the fridge, but let it come back to room temp before putting in the oven. This recipe can easily be halved to serve 4. Adapted from Cooking Light, Feb. 2010.

Recipe #435729

This is excellent! I just saw Guy make this, very quick and very fresh! He serves it with his Brick Chicken. Don't leave out the anchovy paste, it really adds to the dish. Guy just used 1 piece of a roasted red pepper from the har, he did not chop it up before adding it to the food processor. From Food Network.

Recipe #432501

This is VERY good! I must tell you, tho, the original recipe calls for 4 sticks of butter in the sauce! To be fair, the episode she made this on WAS called "Everything's Better With Butter." LOL I read thru many reviews on the other site and almost all cut the butter back, some even to 1 and 1/4 sticks with no problems. I used 2 sticks of butter and also used bacon instead of pancetta, out of personal preference. Dried or fresh herbs, such as tarragon, thyme, basil, oregano, even an Italian seasoning can be used to season while sauteeing the chicken. I also use the artichokes packed in water, not the oil. The last time I made it, I added some minced garlic while sauteeing the veggies and a bit more lemon (to taste) to the sauce. That said, this is one helluva a good dish! Adapted from Food Network, Paula Deen.

Recipe #431073

This is a wonderful, different potato salad! You can use red poatoes if you can't find the fingerlings, they are much cheaper! If using reds, I nuke them first for about 3 minutes, then I start the potatoes going, then half way thru add the corn, don't want the corn to overcook. The tarragon flavor is terrific, but I can see using fresh basil as well. .Serve room temp or chilled. From Cooking Light 2010.

Recipe #434059

You can use up a bumper crop of corn here and save up to six weeks. Serve with any grilled meat or fish, or spoon over salad greens. This makes 6 cups but Zaar would not let me say that. From Cooking Light 2010.

Recipe #434055

A very nice summer cocktail! I cut the sugar back to 1/3 cup. I have also used peach nectar with good results, but the fresh peaches are much better. I don't know how many ounces a bottle of champagne is, but just use a regular bottle. LOL Time doen not include chilling time. From Cooking Light 2010.

These are very simple and very delish! I usually pound the breasts to about an inch thick, so they cook evenly. Depending on who is coming for dinner, I will add more seasonings to make it more spicy. Before adding the mayo mixture, I season the chicken with a bit of Lawry's salt. This is adapted from Paula Deen, (actually her sons) Food Network.

Recipe #435382

A very refreshing summer beverage! I think vodka can be used for the gin or even make as a non-alcoholic drink. Also, it doesn't have to be jasmine tea, but that does give it a nice flavor. I use fresh lemon juice, but use store-bought grapefruit juice. I also use only 1/3 cup of honey. Be sure to start early enough to allow tea and honey mixture time to cool/chill. Time does not include the chilling time. From Bon Appetit Magazine.

Recipe #434279

This is a GREAT summer dessert! I don't bother to strain the berries, but that is my preference. For the cream, I reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. I have found that using fresh baking powder, not something that has been in my pantry for 6 months, works best. From Bon Appetit, 2006.

Yummm, a perfect Spring or Summer dessert! This recipe tops fresh strawberries with a batter that produces an airy cake and a wonderful crisp crust. The fruit becomes almost jam-like. The fruit filling can also be made with a combo of berries, including blackberries, raspberries, etc. The vanilla bean in the filling is very nice, but pure vanilla extract can be subsituted. I serve this warm with vanilla ice cream. This is adapted from Food & Wine magazine. Hope you enjoy!

These are such great little appetizers, especially with fresh tomatoes and basil in season right now. The recipe calls for fontina cheese, but I have used freshly grated parmesan with good results as well. The trick of laying another baking sheet over the dough while they bake really makes them crisp. This is adapted from Food Network, hope you enjoy.

Recipe #385672

Perfect dessert for the summer! I think this would be great with other fruits as well. In a pinch, I have used frozen peaches, tho fresh are much better. Prep time does not include cooling time or the standing of the peaches. This is adapted from Bon Appetit magazine, July 2002. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

Recipe #363789

Looks yummy, easy and cheap to make...what's not to like? I may add a bit more chili powder when I make it. From Sunset Magazine, All You, Feb. 2006. Posted for ZWT 2010.

Recipe #423673

This is a very refreshing summer dessert. I dipped into the creme fraiche first, then the nuts, and THEN the sauce. Adapted from Bon Appétit, August 2005. Hope you enjoy!

Recipe #367932

The original recipe calls for blade steak, but we use flank steak. To cut a flank steak into the proper-sized slices for stir-frying, first cut the steak with the grain into 1 1/2-inch strips, then cut the strips against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices. White pepper lends this stir-fry a unique flavor; black pepper is not a good substitute. I have also used green onions in place of the shallots with good results. We serve this with steamed jasmine rice, but any rice will do. Cooking time does not include marinating time. Adapted from Cooks Illustrated magazine, July 2005. Hope you enjoy!

Recipe #367045

Sounds good and economical too! Be careful not to salt the soup too soon; because ham hocks are so salty, the soup may not need any added salt. And of course, I would add some minced garlic as well. One reviewer from the other site suggested adding some mustard into the stock. (to taste?) Also, her Swedish grandmother mashed 2/3 of the peas only and a third left alone for some texture. From Food Network, Emeril Lagasse, 2004. Posted for ZWT 2010.
