    Although I seldom use processed foods like dehydrated mashed potatoes, this is very good. Would think you could just use leftover mashed potatoes instead of the dehydrated ones. This is slightly adapted from DEANN'S POTATO CHEESE HALIBUT which I ran across years ago on Deeann, whoever and wherever you are, thanks so much!

    Recipe #506664

    This recipe is based on one from Sarah Leah Chase's cookbook, COLD WEATHER COOKING. In the original recipe, Chef Sarah uses a Hazelnut crust, which will be included at the end of this recipe. I prefer a regular pie crust. Although not a baker, I make a foolproof crust with my food processor. However, even a ready-prepared purchased crust works fine, too. I won't tell if you won't. Pears can be poached and custard made a day ahead and refrigerated, just bring to room temp before baking.

    Recipe #491060

    This recipe was born last year when i had an abundance of blueberries and little tart tins that I had never used before. If you take a pie crust and mold it into a tart shell, bake it, fill it with lemon curd, then top with blueberries, you have a nice bite-sized pie that doesn't need a plate or a fork, only a napkin. It is pretty to look at, and if young little hands can help in the assembly, it makes it all the better. One 9 inch pie crust will yield about 16 little tart shells. You can either use your own pie crust recipe, or use a prepared one. Four cups of lemon curd with five 9-inch pastry shells will make enough for eighty little pies (tartlets) If you are only making a dozen or so tartlets and are pressed for time, you can use prepared lemon curd. But when you make your own, it is just magic when it thickens!

    Recipe #505874

    What can be more comforting on a chilly autumn day than braised short ribs served over a creamy mash or polenta? After reviewing several recipes, I came up with this one. I enriched my chicken stock with veal bones that I was able to find at a nearby ethnic market. If you cannot find veal bones, then just use chicken stock or veal stock from demi-glace. I use duck fat whenever I can, so I browned the short ribs in some duck fat. To add a little brightness to the sauce, I added the zest of an orange along with some of its juice. At first this sauce just did not work, but I kept tweaking it. And when it was served over my roasted pureed cauliflower with blue cheese, it was sublime. Sorry to sound so boastful, but it was really very good. Will serve to my guy tomorrow, and the flavors will be even better. For an extra special touch at serving time, top with a gremolata of grated orange zest, a very finely minced clove of garlic, some toasted pine nuts and some chopped flat-leaf parsley.

    Now that I know how to cure salmon, I will never buy lox-style salmon again. This is great on a bagel or on brown bread with either cream cheese or creme fraiche and the usual garnishes of sliced tomato, red onion, and capers Served on a platter with additional grated citrus atop the cured salmon makes for an elegant presentation for serving a crowd. Please note, the format here does not want to accept singular "fillet" and is stating "fillets." However, a whole side of salmon fillet is used in one big piece, not several fillets. Happy Cooking!

    Recipe #488258

    Ohhhh for the love of duck. If you use my recipe on this site for Roast Duck with Apricot Glaze, you will have a lovely duck stock, as well as some decadent duck fat. I love to enrich my duck stock further with veal bones from my nearby ethnic market. This recipe is adapted from one on the Saveur web site. Although typically Parmesan cheese is used, Manchego is also very good; and since that is what I had available, that is what I used.

    Recipe #511465

    My favorite way to prepare tuna steaks is from the cookbook, ONE POT SPANISH, by the late Penelope Casas. A Greek-American writer from Queens, she helped introduce Americans to Spanish cuisine in the 80s. Sadly, she passed away in August, 2013, at the age of 70, following complications of treatment for leukemia. In this recipe she suggests cutting the tuna into 1 inch cubes for a tapa. As a sidebar, thanks to Chef Casas, I learned to add more depth to paella by serving it with a dollop of garlicky and pungent aioli.

    Recipe #510705

    With good fresh salmon, less is always more. But sometimes I like to kick it up a notch with some Indian spices. This curry sauce can be made ahead and reheated while your salmon (or whatever type of fish you have) grillls. You can serve with steamed rice, but to be more carb friendly, sometimes I serve with cauliflower puree. In reviewing the nutritional content listed here, I don't agree with the carbohydrate content that has been calculated. The can of coconut milk has 2 grams of carbs per serving listed. So am stymied with how this system came up with over 50 grams per serving. Now if you include a few glasses of rose wine with this, maybe your carb content will be higher, but still not over 50 grams.

    Recipe #506586

    This is a modified version of an authentic curry from the Urban Rajah's web site. It also works great with fish, too. To make it a little more carb friendly, I serve it on steamed baby spinach, rather than rice. When using fish, I will add in a little light cream during the simmer time; with chicken, I add in a little chicken stock.

    Recipe #489866

    Many thanks to Ivor, of, for graciously granting permission to post his recipe here! Follow him on Twitter! check out his blog! and get his cookbook/ebook! I promised him that a billion home chef would be able to view his recipe....I probably lied about the "billion." But even a small fraction of 1% of a billion is still a LOT of home chefs! Sorry, Ivor, I had to modify the 500 grams of lamb, because this format would not accept that particular measurement.

    Recipe #498471

    The flavors in this modified Saveur recipe are very complex and spicy. Being unfamiliar with quince, fruit that cannot be eaten unless cooked seems unusual. Quince are ripe when yellow in color and are usually available during Fall. Adding an exotic component to the complexity of this dish, nothing can substitute for its tartness and sweetness. Now the poor little misunderstood okra often gets beat up by those who have never had it prepared correctly. Related to cotton, hollyhock, and hibiscus, okra grows in warm climates. Look for young pods under 4 inches long, which should yield tender results when gently simmered a few minutes. Keep in mind that a food processor can speed up the prep work. Although meat is not traditionally browned in making a tajine, I do anyway. Served with couscous and a garnish of preserved lemon on the side, you just might imagine eating outside under a partially open tent, looking out on the desert, all shimmering and silver beneath the starlit Moroccan sky.

    Recipe #488783

    In this recipe, Jamie Oliver meets Nigella Laswon. His Spiced Lamb Stew with Walnuts and Pomegranate is transformed into a tagine, which was inspired by her Lamb Tagine with Dates and Pomegranate. I had no dates, so to balance out the sourness of the pomegranate, I used honey. It needed far more heat for my own preference. But with a little Harissa (prepared) on the side with a tangy Onion-Pomegranate Relish and some fluffed couscous, this was good and so very unusual. I had pondered grinding the walnuts after toasting them so they would act more as a thickener, but I liked the different texture and crunch with them being chopped. I found pomegranates that were reasonably priced at a nearby market. But since I was unable to extract very much juice from them, I purchased pomegranate juice at Trader Joe's. I have heard on foodie-type TV shows that the way an onion is sliced affects its flavor. Seems the flavor is more acrid when sliced horizontally, so I suggest slicing vertically.

    Recipe #489609

    This recipe is adapted from Guy Fieri's recipe on Food Network. When cooking any type of animal protein, my own personal preference is cook with bone in. I like to think that the oozing marrow from the bone adds richness and flavor. Guy's recipe included green beans, but we used our favorite veggie, cauliflower. Allow at least 4 hours for marinating. If you are refrigerating your lamb while marinating, allow to come to room to room temperature before grilling. Guy F. suggests 20 minutes. Often times, Indian recipes are served with rice. However, to be a little more carb smart, serving pureed cauliflower is a great alternative to starches like rice or potatoes.

    Recipe #487098

    Adapted from Emeril’s recipe, on FoodNetwork,Tequila Marinated Chicken in Mole Sauce, the first step in creating Mole Sauce is to make this paste, which yields 3 1/2 cups. The paste is then further combined with additional chocolate and chicken stock to make an exquisitely complex Mole Sauce to serve with roasted chicken, turkey, pork, fish, Emeril's Tequila Marinated Chicken or in enchiladas. Garnish with the usual in Mexican cuisine, diced avocado, corn tortillas, cilantro, and pickled onion. Since only about a cup is used at a time, the remainder freezes well for use at a later time. I will try this with duck and/or rabbit and get back with you on this one.

    Recipe #486722

    With the bone attached, these bite-sized lamb chops are a great finger-food/appetizer for a small crowd. Also, they can be made a day ahead, refrigerated, then served at room temperature. The gremolata topping adds some nice color and brightness but should be prepared on same day of your event. If you would like to prepare your own Ras el hanout, there are many blends, including my own, here on If you are using a blend commercially prepared, the only one I can recommend is from Williams/Sonoma. I have tried another one that is popular and available in markets and online, but the Williams/Sonama blend is far better, JMHO. If you purchase preserved lemon, they are quite spendy. It is easy to make your own, but they need to be made a month ahead of time so they can ripen.

    Recipe #513988

    Adapted from Saveur, this terrine is always a winner. Pre-sliced when served (for the ease of others), and garnished with the luscious gelee that forms, this terrine makes an elegant and impressive presentation, especially with cornichon, a couple of French mustards, and picholine olives. You also want to have sliced baguette available. The Saveur recipe (from Aussie Chef Philip Johnson) uses Macadamia nuts, and those oils are splendid. But being a Francophile, I prefer hazelnuts or pistachios. Then again French terrines (or at least the recipes I have run across) are often much more complicated than this. The very few steps involved in preparing this might sound daunting but are really quite simple. I am not able to bone a chicken as quickly as Julia could have, but the process is not complicated.

    Recipe #489168

    I like to serve oysters on special occasions.This bisque is based on a recipe from Sarah Leah Chase's cookbook, COLD WEATHER COOKING. It begins by first making your base by sauteing onion and celery in butter, adding rehydrated wild mushrooms, then seasoning with thyme and nutmeg, making a rue with some flour, then stirring in your juices from the rehydrated wild mushrooms, oyster liquor, fish stock, and sherry. While the soup base simmers, prepare wild rice, and saute your fresh mushrooms. This is where you can really be creative with different types of mushrooms, like my fave, Hen of the Woods, AKA Maitake, which adds an intense earthiness and an interesting texture. Once the soup base has simmered, add in your light cream and blend with an immersion blender. Add in your sauteed mushrooms, wild rice, and oysters.The base and the wild rice can be made ahead. The original recipe uses heavy cream and cream sherry. Makes a lovely first course for a holiday dinner.

    Recipe #491037

    This recipe has been adapted from FoodNetworks Halibut in Sicilian Sauce. I guess any firm white fleshy fish can be used, but I used Black Cod, also known as Sablefish or Butterfish. I always prefer to buy a whole fish and fillet it myself, as I feel that it is fresher and has a better flavor. Then I can make stock out of the bones and freeze away for later use. The sauce is a savory, salty, sweet combination that combines unlikely ingredients creating a lovely marrying of flavors and could probably be prepared a day ahead. As you prepare the sauce, add salt sparingly, since you are adding salty ingredients toward the end of the preparation. I have served this over risotto before, but it is still excellent without starch-stacking.

    Recipe #486175

    One of my favorite desserts to prepare, this recipe is right out of Conde Nast's 1997 publication of PARTIES, page 119. I like it because it is low in gluten and not too sweet. Next time, I will try using gluten-free flour. The cardamom glaze adds a nice surprise.

    Recipe #514277

    We were wondering what to do with our rack of lamb. Since we had some Ras el hanout, preserved lemon, pomegranate molasses, and pomegranate seeds, we prepared this with excellent results. I have never been to Morocco. But from what I have seen of recipes by Paula Wolfert, the preparation of Moroccan cuisine seems much more complicated than this. Your own Ras el hanout will be better than anything you find already prepared. And if you can find spices at an ethnic market, it will cost less, too. ( has many very good Ras el hanout blends, including my own :-)) As for preserved lemon, guess where you can find a recipe? You guessed it--right here on But I will also provide one at the end of this recipe
