A hearty grain salad with your choice of add-ins and a zesty vinaigrette just the way you like it. ]]>

I went with sea bass for this excellent fish recipe. Loved the salsa, and excellent addition to any mild white fish. ]]>
<![CDATA[Pulled-Pork Sandwiches with Cabbage, Caper & Herb Slaw]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:20:30 -0500 Pulled-Pork Sandwiches with Cabbage, Caper & Herb Slaw Posted by Sheri
These sandwiches are a great way to use up all that fabulous slow-roasted pork shoulder. Loved the addition of the slaw. ]]>
<![CDATA[Smoked Turkey Ruebens]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:19:09 -0500 Smoked Turkey Ruebens Posted by Sheri
I didn't think I would like these, despite my obsession with Everything Panini. I was wrong, I loved them. Really fabulous, and different. ]]>
<![CDATA[Fresh Pasta with Sausage & Mushrooms]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:18:00 -0500 Fresh Pasta with Sausage & Mushrooms Posted by Sheri
Excellent dish. The sausage is prominent in this recipe so it's important to buy something that tastes great. I used Whole Foods spicy chicken Italian sausage, which we loved. ]]>
<![CDATA[Spicy Jerk Pork Chops]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:16:26 -0500 Spicy Jerk Pork Chops Posted by Sheri
Served with fried plantains and a black bean-corn salsa. My husband loves pork chops and loves jerk. These are the best of both and I'm looking forward to making them again. ]]>
<![CDATA[Salt & Pepper Shrimp with Garlic & Chile]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:14:07 -0500 Salt & Pepper Shrimp with Garlic & Chile Posted by Sheri
Spicy! Very spicy. But good. I made these for myself to snack on around dinnertime while I was home alone one night. A great finger food. ]]>
<![CDATA[Lemon-Ginger Marmalade]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:12:25 -0500 Lemon-Ginger Marmalade Posted by Sheri
This was a very labor-intensive endeavor, due to the work involved with peeling and cutting the rind, but so worth it. I made a bunch of small jars and gave them out to friends, neighbors and... ]]>
<![CDATA[Real Chocolate Mousse]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:08:46 -0500 Real Chocolate Mousse Posted by Sheri
I loved this mousse and wanted to eat the whole batch. It's not only super easy to make, it's absolutely delicious. ]]>
<![CDATA[Wine-Braised Chicken with Shallots and Pancetta]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:06:59 -0500 Wine-Braised Chicken with Shallots and Pancetta Posted by Sheri
I served this for a bunch of people at a dinner party. It's a good dinner party dish. It's good. Probably not a must-repeat again dish for me, but good. ]]>
<![CDATA[Classic Carrot Cake]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:04:24 -0500 Classic Carrot Cake Posted by Sheri
I'm not a fan of carrot cake, so I made this but didn't eat any. However, everyone that had some loved it. And the cream cheese frosting is to die for. I used the frosting recipe a couple of weeks... ]]>
<![CDATA[Chicken Saute with Cumin, Lemon & Parsley]]> Mon, 02 Mar 2009 00:02:33 -0500 Chicken Saute with Cumin, Lemon & Parsley Posted by Sheri
This was pretty easy to make, but we weren't super crazy about it. I don't know, something missing? ]]>
<![CDATA[Blood Orange & Mango Sorbet]]> Sun, 01 Mar 2009 23:59:12 -0500 Blood Orange & Mango Sorbet Posted by Sheri
This sorbet was terrific. Loved it... very creamy. I made everything up the day before so all I had to do was process it in the ice cream maker. ]]>
<![CDATA[Blood Orange & Radicchio Salad with Hazelnuts & Shaved Parmesan]]> Sun, 01 Mar 2009 23:58:57 -0500 Blood Orange & Radicchio Salad with Hazelnuts & Shaved Parmesan Posted by Sheri
This salad is good, but not so special I would make it again. Probably because I'm not a huge fan of radicchio or hazelnuts. Or oranges in a green salad. ]]>
<![CDATA[Pork & Potato Hash with Poached Eggs & Avocado]]> Thu, 15 Jan 2009 00:39:43 -0500 Pork & Potato Hash with Poached Eggs & Avocado Posted by Sheri
Another great use of the leftover pork shoulder. I love hash anyway, but this is a delicious version. We loved it for dinner, but it would also be excellent for breakfast. Read more on my... ]]>
<![CDATA[Pork Ragout and Soft Polenta]]> Thu, 15 Jan 2009 00:37:19 -0500 Pork Ragout and Soft Polenta Posted by Sheri
Wow, this is a great dish. The flavors in the ragout are perfect, and marry great with the creamy polenta. In my opinion, the best polenta is made with milk (and cream, and cheese!). Read more on my... ]]>
<![CDATA[Sautéed Escarole with Raisins, Pine Nuts, and Capers]]> Thu, 15 Jan 2009 00:34:09 -0500 Sautéed Escarole with Raisins, Pine Nuts, and Capers Posted by Sheri
I've used escarole in soups, and I like it, but this wasn't my favorite dish. However, my husband and our dinner guest loved it and ate it all up. Read more on my blog, Pork Cracklins. ]]>
<![CDATA[Slow-Roasted Pork Shoulder with Carrots, Onions, and Garlic]]> Mon, 12 Jan 2009 23:55:01 -0500 Slow-Roasted Pork Shoulder with Carrots, Onions, and Garlic Posted by Sheri
Pork shoulder is my most favorite cut of meat. All it needs is some salt and pepper and low and slow cooking and it's delicious. I didn't salt the roast overnight, although I wish I would have. I... ]]>
<![CDATA[Orange & Brown-Butter Tart]]> Mon, 12 Jan 2009 21:41:53 -0500 Orange & Brown-Butter Tart Posted by Sheri
I'm a sucker for tarts. It's one of my favorite desserts to make, and generally like them more than pies or cakes. This one caught my eye because of the oranges and the brown butter. Different... ]]>
<![CDATA[Broccolini with Kalamata Dressing]]> Sun, 11 Jan 2009 23:54:12 -0500 Broccolini with Kalamata Dressing Posted by Sheri
I'm not crazy about broccoli. One of my least favorite vegetables. However, broccolini is slightly better because the tops are sparser and there's more stem. I made one change to this and roasted the... ]]>
<![CDATA[Roasted Potato and Mushroom Salad with Mascarpone]]> Sun, 11 Jan 2009 23:40:45 -0500 Roasted Potato and Mushroom Salad with Mascarpone Posted by Sheri
Made as part of of the "Any Night's All Right" menu. This was by far our favorite dish, but I love pretty much anything with mascarpone. I'm not a fan of mushrooms but they add a nice flavor to this... ]]>
<![CDATA[Pan-Seared Skirt Steak with Warm Radish & Red Onion Pickle]]> Sun, 11 Jan 2009 15:47:33 -0500 Pan-Seared Skirt Steak with Warm Radish & Red Onion Pickle Posted by Sheri
We don't eat a lot of beef, and when we do it's usually a pepper-crusted filet. So this was something different for us. Love it. Easy to make, although it needs time (2 hours to overnight) to... ]]>
<![CDATA[Creamy White Bean & Herb Dip]]> Sun, 11 Jan 2009 13:40:32 -0500 Creamy White Bean & Herb Dip Posted by Sheri
I actually made the entire menu from this article. Everything was really good. We started with this white bean dip, which was easy to make (and can be made ahead). We had it with little packaged... ]]>
<![CDATA[Buttermilk Cake with Spiced Vanilla Icing]]> Fri, 09 Jan 2009 23:43:32 -0500 Buttermilk Cake with Spiced Vanilla Icing Posted by Sheri
Loved this cake. Absolutely delicious. It's not one of those spectacular desserts that everyone ooohs and aaahs over. It's homey and understated. But the spices are subtle and just right. It's moist... ]]>
<![CDATA[Red-Cooked Tofu]]> Fri, 09 Jan 2009 01:55:11 -0500 Red-Cooked Tofu Posted by Sheri
Fast to make, and I liked it. My husband wasn't super crazy about it, though - he didn't like the carrots. Read more on my blog, Pork Cracklins. ]]>
