    DH and I enjoyed this easy to prepare salmon dish from July 2008 Bon Appetit. We cheated and used anchovy paste instead of opening up a new tin of anchovies. It worked fine. We served the fish with grilled summer squash and zucchini, which was very complimentary.

    Recipe #399262

    This fast and easy recipe is credited to Cynthia Charbeneau of Traverse City, MI. I made the recipe from the website. Fustini's is a store in Traverse City that specializes in all sorts of different olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The balsamics and olive oils also come in infused varieties (I just bought a pomegranate infused balsamic for salads). I love shopping in this store when I am up north. On the website, very few ingredient proportions are listed for this recipe, so I listed the proportions I tried tonight. I would never have thought I would enjoy strawberries with fish, but I really thought this dish was a winner. DH said he "liked it." I used Fustini's 18-year aged balsamic vinegar. I omitted the sugar and water. DH always cooks the tuna steaks by first putting them in the oven on 200F for a short time before pan searing them. This way, they are still rare (but not cold) on the inside. I put the strawberry/balsamic combination in a saucepan on the stovetop between medium low and low, just enough to warm them up. I served with one of our favorite salads, Recipe #191024 191024, using Fustini's 12-year-old white balsamic vinegar.

    Recipe #407204

    Another winner from our "The Chili Cookbook" by Norman Kolpas. This was easy to make, came together quickly, and made for a tasty lunch. We omitted the sour cream as neither of us really care for it.

    Recipe #408600

    This recipe is from Williams-Sonoma "Essentials of Roasting." DH and I really enjoyed it. Prep time does not include resting time for the meat.

    Recipe #407206

    This recipe is from my cookbook from The Stinking Rose restaurant in San Francisco. As the name implies, garlic is their featured ingredient. DH and I made this recipe a few nights ago. We really enjoyed it. I am guessing on the prep time because my rabbit already came in pieces and I did not have to cut it myself.

    Recipe #330233

    DH and I made this easy recipe from my "The New Legal Seafoods" cookbook a few nights ago. We opted to prepare the mahi mahi in our stovetop grill pan, which worked well. I halved the recipe with great success, though I only needed one pear. According to the recipe, the fruit chutney also works well with swordfish, tuna, snapper, and even pork and will keep for several days if refrigerated. However, it cautions that if you are going to save extra sauce, omit the mint until just before serving.

    Recipe #417142

    Another delicious recipe from my Williams-Sonoma "Steak and Chops" cookbook. DH and I found this to be wonderfully spicy. We used baby portabellas for the mushrooms instead of white and it worked well in the dish. Prep time includes the at least 15 minutes of letting meat stand at room temp.

    Recipe #331759

    DH and I enjoyed this very prep-friendly dish from Bon Appetit March 2009. I used a really good white balsamic vinegar that I bought from Fustini's in Traverse City. This recipe was good for a weeknight when we didn't feel like doing a lot of chopping.

    Recipe #417143

    This excellent grilled duck recipe was found in my Bobby Flay "Boy Gets Grill" cookbook. DH and I loved it. According to the recipe, the leftover spice rub works well on any poultry or meat. DH and I halved the rub ingredients (and the other ingredients) to suit 2 duck breasts and had a significant amount of rub left over. Prep time includes rest time.

    Recipe #421994

    DH and I made this wonderful recipe from Christopher Styler's "Smokin" Cookbook, shortly after getting our new Cameron stovetop smoker (which we love--thanks TxGriffLover!). To smoke the chicken, please refer to TxGriffLover's Recipe #293665 293665. We thought this recipe was very tasty. My father-in-law was also impressed by the smoky flavor that was imparted from the stovetop smoker as he is used to outdoor smoking. We used alder in this recipe and began smoking the chicken shortly after starting the piperade.

    Recipe #423677

    I made this very nice recipe for my aunt and myself from the Williams-Sonoma "Chicken" cookbook and we enjoyed it very much. I cheated and used stewed tomatoes because I was in a hurry and this seemed to work fine.

    Recipe #435444

    DH and I made this tasty shrimp linguine for lunch today and thought it was very good. We have plenty of leftovers. This is from the July 2010 "Bon Appetit."

    Recipe #436222

    DH and I made this easy, tasty recipe from Bon Appetit tonight and really enjoyed it.

    Recipe #447658

    DH and I enjoyed this way of preparing duck last night. It is from the December 2010 issue of Bon Appetit and is credited to the restaurant, Fornino, in Park Slope, Brooklyn. We used two duck breasts and halved the spice blends, but made the full amount of sauce. We served with mashed potatoes and asparagus. We found we had to cook our duck a little longer than the indicated time.

    Recipe #448014

    I made this today for lunch from the January 2011 issue of Bon Appetit. This was my first experience with Shaoxing wine and togarashi (Japanese spice blend). I enjoyed both! This recipe is really good. I cheated and used a store-bought basil oil instead of making mine fresh as this looks like it yields way more basil oil than is needed to drizzle on the dish. Perhaps in the summer, I will try making the basil oil for this dish and then using it for other recipes. Also, my sauce came out a little more liquidy than I would have expected (it still tasted good), so you may want to simmer longer. I simmered longer than 20 minutes (more like 30 or 35) and turned up the heat when simmering the clam juice and Shaoxing and also simmered the cream sauce longer and it was still liquidy, but tasted good. This is supposed to serve 8 appetizer servings. I would say it serves about 4-6 for lunch.

    Recipe #448019

    This yummy recipe hails from the February 2011 issue of "Bon Appetit." DH and I easily halved the recipe. This meal is good for a weekend when you have a lot of time on your hands--it is not difficult, but takes awhile to make. The meat came out very tender. We used merlot for the wine, an assortment of mushrooms, and dried bay leaves. We served with roasted asparagus and Recipe #251600 251600 to soak up the sauce.

    Recipe #449251

    DH and I made this recipe from the March 2011 "Real Simple" magazine last week and found it to be very easy and good. We just served our green beans boiled, so I cannot vouch for that aspect of the recipe directions. We served with Recipe #44938 44938

    Recipe #450083

    DH, myself, and my aunt had this really tasty salmon recipe for dinner last night. It is from Bon Appetit. We all enjoyed it very much and will definitely have it again. We used 2% Greek yogurt for the yogurt sauce, which I recommend. I posted the recipe as I found it in Bon Appetit, however, DH had to cook the fish longer than 3 mins on each side. Then, because he was afraid of burning the outside of the fish, he finished it in the oven until it was not translucent. He said he basically browned the fish, then finished in the oven.

    Recipe #449600

    DH and I enjoyed this nice twist on pastitsio last night for dinner. It gave me a good excuse to use up some of my ras-el-hanout spice that I have in abundance. I liked that there was very little prep involved in this recipe. I got it from the March 2011 issue of "Bon Appetit." Prep time does not include resting time.

    Recipe #450085

    I enjoyed this "peppery" mac and cheese from Bon Appetit. I found the Peppadew peppers at Hillers, a grocery chain near where I live. I used ancho chile powder. Prep time includes rest time.

    Recipe #451082
