Re:Tomato Bread with Ibérico

This is my go-to appetizer for all my parties and its always the first to go. The only change I make is to puree the tomatoes, garlic, EVOO, salt & pepper then spoon it on the bread and top with the ham. Delicioso!

Re:Crispy Catfish Po Boys

BLAND! My husband made a polite smile my way before reaching for the hot sauce. I whipped up a quick impromptu remoulade-like sauce to top it off but by that time the sandwich was cold and I was too disappointed to enjoy. Also added sliced tomatoes. My 5 year olds ate it though. Made southern collard greens and oven baked sweet potato fries to go with.

Re:Salt Cod and Crab Fritters

Great flavor, bad execution. Not only do they not fry up properly, they desintegrated in the oil! I tried coating them (flour, egg & breadcrumbs) salvaging half a batch, but as is, they're a no go. Such a shame, because I prepped them for a dinner party last night and ended up having them for lunch today because I wasn't prepared for the extra steps.

Re:Pan-Fried Gnocchi with Bacon, Onions, & Peas

Let me start off by saying I completely screwed up this recipe. First of all, I didn't realize I mixed maple bacon with my peppered bacon. Then I used a stainless steel skillet instead of nonstick. The gnocchi was mushy and the sauce tasted like I poured cheap pancake syrup on it. However, I will say that I'll try this recipe again because the bites with the peppered bacon were pretty good and full of potential. I will not be using the gnocchi because I realized I'm not a big fan of them.

Re:Grilled Brie, Turkey & Pear Sandwiches

I really liked this sandwich. I spread mustard on both bread slices and sprinkled the turkey with dried thyme (didn't have fresh). Served with a simple mixed baby greens salad. Yum!

Re:Sausages & White Bean Stew with Tomatoes, Thyme & Crisp Breadcrumbs

SOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!!! I modified the recipe to fit what I had on hand but the simplicity can't be beat. I used uncased sausage meat sauteed, used 1 1/2 cans of beans (pureed the half before adding instead of mashing later) and added baby arugula instead of kale. I also omitted the breadcrumb mix, but grated parm over it. My husband requested to add this to our regular rotation.

Re:Pasta with Mushrooms, Peas, Prosciutto & Sour Cream

This was really, really good! So simple yet the texture was very luxurious. I was dubious about the sour cream, but it works. I didn't have prosciutto so I used peppered bacon instead. I also used whole wheat rotini, which added a nuttiness that was a bit off with the sauce, but I'll definitely be adding this to my pasta rotation.

Re:Lentil Salad with Fennel and Smoked Salmon

The flavors were good but it was a whole lot of lentils. I think maybe diluting this mixture on a bed of greens, arugula or watercress maybe, might work better.
