Balsamic Onion Confit

"This is a dish adapted from Diamond Dishes: From the Kitchens of Baseball's Biggest Stars. A-Rod cooks it for T-Bond Steak but I made it for a baked salmon and it was delicious. I baked the salmon with spices and sealed in foil - the right before serving, I spread the Balsamic Onion Confit on the top."

<p>I guess it's been awhile since I've updated my info (that's an understatement!). I live on 10 acres outside San Luis Obispo with my hubby and our 6 cats and very large dog. Sam (my icon cat) passed away a few years ago. Bob, the feral cat that is the biggest and clumsiest goofball in the world is still around.? Big Red, an overweight sweetie that was partially tame, especially at mealtime passed a year ago due to a rattlesnake bite and Spook - another feral - pure black with yellow eyes is also still with us. Our little Dash passed away about 6 years ago at 18 months and broke our hearts in the process. There's a picture of her on my Soups & Stews cookbook. Since that time, (4 years ago) we got our beloved Franci (Great Pryrenees/Lab mix) and 2 months ago adopted a litter of kittens - 3 in all.? We have Skipper, Ginger and Marianne.? Who says you can't have a houseful of children and herd cats when you're in your 70s? I love to cook and garden and now that I am semi-retired, I have more time to do both. My husband is a willing guinea pig for my cooking and since he's still among the living, I guess I haven't had too many klunkers. This site is the best thing since sliced bread. All my cookbooks are now on display. I only use 4 and 5 star reviews - why hurt someone's feelings with a mediocre or bad review. Just don't make the dish again.</p>
