    My Signature Recipes

    [Cover photo by NimrodCook.] By which I mean recipes that--among people who I have cooked for--have proved especially popular and are requested by family and friends. (The salmon log is actually a recipe of my sister's which I've appropriated--repeatedly. Similarly, the hot chicken salad, parmesan acorn squash and oven pork chops I inherited from my mother.)

    A wonderful marinade for chicken. If you don't have Miracle Whip, mayonnaise may be substituted. I usually marinate chicken in the marinade at least 30 minutes before cooking. However, I once took chicken sitting in the marinade to a cook-out, and other people there who had brought their own chicken started dipping their chicken in my left-over marinade to coat, then barbecuing right away without waiting for it to marinate. It was still delicious! I've found I can coat over a dozen chicken pieces with a single recipe of the marinade. These days I make this without the Tbs of salt when making it just for myself, but people's tolerance for low salt varies widely and so I've posted it the way I've found suits most people best. I'd say be guided by your own tastes when it comes to amount of salt used.

    Recipe #88939

    I love the combination of roast beef, horseradish and dill. If you have leftover roast beef on hand, you can make this in minutes. This cold dish encompasses all three. If you like, you can add 1 or 2 baked potatoes, diced, though I don't usually do this unless I have to extend the salad to more people than usual. Please note that, as written, the lettuce is just meant as a bed to serve the beef salad on (I usually omit it when making it just for myself). If you want to mix the lettuce INTO the meat salad, increase the amount of dressing.

    Recipe #91878

    I bring this to dinner every Thanksgiving, give it as a Christmas gift and eat it year-round. Yum!

    Recipe #91667

    Very very good,especially if you like tarragon. Serve as a dip with a raw veggie tray or as a sauce on cooked vegetables as a side dish.

    Recipe #100471

    The revelation here is the salad dressing (including the dill). Substitute whatever vegetables you like. Sometimes I like to include 1/4 cup sliced radishes or to add sweet yellow pepper and carrots sliced paper thin.

    Recipe #112040

    A yummy cheese appetizer for fans of pumpernickel bread. If you can't find the cocktail size loaves of pumpernickel (slices about the same dimensions as a cracker), just use regular pumpernickel bread and cut the slices into quarters. Number of servings assumes you use about 1 whole loaf, but you can make however many or however few you want. Sometimes I sprinkle with a little dill in place of the chives or use dill havarti. Amounts are approximate.

    Recipe #103341

    The main components of this salad are the macaroni and the dressing. The other ingredients can be changed to suit your tastes. I sometimes omit the tuna and add sliced radishes and chopped scallions. Preparation time includes cooking time for the macaroni, but not the time for chilling.

    Recipe #91474

    Adapted from a Chinese cookbook by Jim Lee that was published around 1970. This is one of my all-time favorite cookbooks; I was introduced to it by friends who were Chinese students I knew at University of Virginia. The gai laan which the Chinese eat is not actually broccoli, but broccoli is a good substitute which works well in America, where most of us don't have access to gai laan.

    Recipe #103243

    Carrots rich and sweet, a Moroccan side dish that goes well with middle eastern-style dishes. Very quick to make. If you don't like the idea of combining raisins with carrots, leave them out--it will still taste good. To feed more people, just add a carrot per person. I also like to make this for holiday meals sometimes, because they seem a little "special."

    Recipe #96258

    This is a filling for a 4-egg omelet or two 2-egg omelets for when you're having breakfast, brunch or dinner with somebody special. The combination of wine, cream & the delicate taste of Gruyere cheese makes it rich and delicious. The recipe can be doubled.

    Recipe #91223

    Heavenly. Great for a dinner party for somebody you really want to impress!

    Recipe #99209

    The "crust" of this pizza is actually hamburger rather than dough. Sure cuts down on the carbs!

    Recipe #93078

    Salmon is my number one favorite "meat" so I'm always looking for a variety of ways to cook it. Here is another of several ways I like to prepare it. (I only make this with REAL maple syrup, so can't vouch for the results if you substitute.)

    Recipe #102139

    The title of this vegetable-rice dish refers to the colors in the dish which are similar to autumn foliage--however, you can eat it year-round (as long as you have summer squash available to you at the grocery store). The cooking time shown does not include time to cook rice, so add this if you're not using left-over rice.

    Recipe #91476

    My parents gave a Christmas party for about 30 people with a buffet dinner (followed by charades) every year for many years. My mother often served this dish (multiplied) because it was relatively easy and people liked it so much.

    Recipe #92976

    The first dish I ever served to guests and the response I got was so positive I've been making it ever since. Needless to say, it's a very simple recipe. One of the few chicken dishes I still make using bone-in, skin-on chicken parts. When feeding known garlic-lovers, I'll increase the garlic. I generally serve it with noodles. While I post the original amounts from the recipe below, I actually do not measure the butter & lemon juice when I make this, but rather use 1 lemon's worth lemon juice and approximately the same or just slightly more butter, so that the butter comes to about 2-3 Tbs I would guess.

    Recipe #131020

    This is a very easy recipe for a chicken dish that will suit people who like their chicken spicy, but not TOO hot. Served on a bed of rice, it is colorful and elegant enough for company. UPDATE: I suggest that you not substitute regular mustard for dry mustard. Regular mustard is made by mixing dry mustard with a substantial amount of vinegar and will completely change the flavor of the dish.

    Recipe #90739

    My favorite dessert! Comes out cake-like on top and pudding-like on the bottom. Adapted from a recipe from Cooking Light Magazine.

    Recipe #90353

    The texture is very chewy rather than cake-like. The almond and chocolate flavors blend well. Nowadays I melt the chocolate & butter in the microwave.

    Recipe #89244

    The recipe my mom always made. The mustard-brown sugar sauce it cooks in makes it still the best I've ever tasted.

    Recipe #90434
