Salmon with Baked Couscous

Salmon with Baked Couscous

I didn’t grow up eating much fish, so this recipe for salmon with couscous was the only fish recipe I made for several years. It was salmon, baked under a layer of couscous flavored with olive oil, lemon juice, olives, capers, and raisins. I came […]

Country-Style Steak

Country-Style Steak

Based on my blogging trends, you would believe that I eat sweets all the time. You’d be nearly right – I do love dessert. Lest you think I don’t make dinner, I present to you Country-Style Steak. Alton Brown made cooking cubed steak so appealing […]

Beef with Capers and Garlic

Beef with Capers and Garlic

I decided upon the perfect thing to make for dinner while my husband was out of town one weekend. I would try the recipe for Beef with 100 Cloves of Garlic. Actually, I came across two competing recipes (second one here), both adaptations of the […]

Small Focaccia

Small Focaccia

Focaccia is delicious. I’m sure you already know that. Today I baked focaccia to go with a soup I made for dinner (Italian sausage with crushed tomatoes, kale, lentils, and orzo, if you were curious), and it makes me swoon a little every time. I […]

A few years ago, Alex asked all of our friends to give me recipes for my birthday. Best present ever! However, it’s taken me a little while to start making them. My friend Allison gave me five, and this is just the second one I’ve […]

347: Vanilla Roasted Pears

347: Vanilla Roasted Pears

I was enchanted with the idea of Vanilla Roasted Pears the first time I saw the recipe. I like pears, and for some reason I find the thought of roasted pears very sophisticated. I always want to make poached pears (generally in white wine), but […]

314: Peanut-Baked Chicken

314: Peanut-Baked Chicken

I had a package of drumsticks I wanted to cook, so I looked around for a recipe and settled on Peanut-Baked Chicken. The recipe looked pretty straight-forward. I had 2.5 pounds of drumsticks, so I omitted the chicken thighs but made the full batch of […]

277: Oven-Roasted Pasta Sauce

Before our first frost advisory, I picked all the green tomatoes on my tomato plant. I had 7 pounds of green tomatoes! I’ve been waiting for the majority of them to be ripe at the same time so that I could make Oven-Roasted Pasta Sauce. […]
