Re:Grilled Steak Skewers with Arugula Chimichurri

A recipe that earned rave reviews at a dinner party -- but, I used 1) larger cubes of meat, like 1.5-2", so veggies have time to cook, and 2) more meat per person. Recipe allows for 1/4 lb per person, which is too little in my book. I'd recommend allowing at least 1/3 lb per person (after trimming meat of any excess fat), which gives each skewer three generous chunks of meat. My butcher recommended a chateaubriand cut, which was fabulous. My third recommendation is to cut down the olive oil to 1/3 cup. Last, I like a little garlic but not a lot (especially raw), so I used 1 medium clove. This recipe, with these changes, is a keeper!

Re:Roasted Parsnip, Potato, and Apple Salad with Walnuts

Healthy yet hearty. An inspired combination, & very colorful! Satisfying enough for a main dish for dinner. Highly recommended.

Re:Tomato-Cheddar Soup with Ham Toasties

We thoroughly enjoyed this soup -- nice variation from plain tomato soup, and great paired with the sandwich. One time I tried using a lowfat sharp cheddar and half n' half, but of course the soup wasn't nearly as good!
