Re:Three-Herb Turkey Broth

This is the best turkey broth recipe I've ever used. It's the one I use to guarantee great gravy and also use for other Thanksgiving weekend needs. It's rich, flavorful and much better than your basic broth.

Re:Roasted Medley of Winter Roots

I love to roast vegetables and this is a fantastic way to use a variety of root vegetables some people may not eat often. I've been making this for clients to rave reviews, served with roast chicken and roast pork tenderloin. The beets do give it a nice pinkish color. I've had one client request the recipe to do for Thanksgiving. Thanks Molly!

Re:Classic Tomato Soup Recipe

Just terrifc. Simple and satisfying for a great lunch in an hour. I used dried herbs as I was out of fresh. Splashed in a bit of half and half at the end, and garnished with a little thinned pesto. Served with a grilled cheese sandwich using Manchego on sourdough. Perfect! Thanks Fine Cooking and Perla Meyers.

Re:Bloody Mary Cocktail Sauce

Used this recipe for a dinner I catered this weekend, serving a classic shrimp cocktail in martini glasses. Terrific sauce. Great flavor and tang. I used ground chipotle powder instead of the canned. This is now in my "go to" recipe file for parties.

Re:Grilled Skirt Steak with Quick Romesco Sauce

Great recipe. Simple. Versatile. Goes equally well with chicken and roast pork tenderloin. Also good to use with appetizers. I've also mixed leftover sauce with marinara for a great pasta topping!

Re:Apple Brown-Butter Jalousie

I've made this many times and always keep puff in the freezer. It's become one of my "go to" desserts. Nice to be able to make it a few hours ahead in total or even the apple filling a day ahead. It's impressive looking too. Everyone loves it. Need to be careful when slicing the apples to get them thick enough as noted in the recipe. I also get more apples than specified for thick perfect slices, discarding (or snacking on) the thinner end slices. Terrific, although it does not serve eight, better at six.

Re:Sear-Roasted Halibut with Tomato & Capers

Terrific, simple, fast, fresh tasting. All I added was a good sprinkling of fresh chopped Italian parsley. Fresh oregano or marjoram would work nicely as well.

Re:Asparagus Soup with Saffron Croutons

Terrific recipe. Simple and tasty. My edits - added garlic to the croutons for more flavor, pureed soup very well and did not strain, kept a few tips for garnish. Made this for a client dinner I catered. They loved it and asked for the recipe.

Re:White Bean Soup with Wild Mushrooms & Chive Mascarpone

Terrific soup! Will definitely make it again. I pureed only half the beans and left the other half whole and used all of the cooking liquid. Also added shredded roast chicken breast I had from the night before. Had creme fraiche, so substituted for the mascarpone. The beans were so creamy. Wonderful, simple, hearty and tasty. So glad I have leftovers!
