Apple Puffed Pancake

Apple Puffed Pancake

This impressive golden puff of a pancake is baked in a cast iron skillet in a very hot oven. It will fall a little as you carry it, still in the skillet, from oven to table and it should be eaten right away.

Rhubarb Crumble

Rhubarb Crumble

This Rhubarb Crumble is quick and easier to make than pie. It’s versatile, too, because you can add strawberries in the spring or apples in the fall. I usually pop it into the oven shortly before we sit down to eat so it’s still warm for dessert! Continue Reading →

Grilled Salmon with Cherry-Chipotle Glaze

Grilled Salmon with Cherry-Chipotle Glaze

Most of the time, “dressing up” foods with fancy preparations and sauces just masks flavors. But curing fresh salmon with sugar and salt, then grilling it in a sweet-spicy glaze really enhances an already great tasting fish in this Grilled Salmon with Cherry-Chipotle Glaze. The chipotle chile glaze has some kick, but the cherry preserves in it helps tone down the “fire.” And it doesn’t stop there! Cilantro-Lime Butter finishes the dish easily‒and with style.

Crab, Shrimp and Pork Pot Stickers

Crab, Shrimp and Pork Pot Stickers

I absolutely love eating pot stickers. What’s not to love about them? Crispy on one side, tender on the other and bursting with a flavorful crab, shrimp and pork filling. These are simple to assemble and sheer gold sitting in your freezer! The uncooked pot stickers can be placed on a parchment-lined tray (make sure they’re not touching) and frozen. Transfer to a plastic freezer bag and store for up to a month. To cook the frozen pot stickers, add an extra minute to the cooking time after the water is added. Continue Reading →

Crab stuffed mushrooms only look difficult to make. A large tray with an army of mini-sized appetizers, each little soldier with a browned bubbling cheese crust only suggests that you’ve slaved over them for days. Really, the most work you’ve done is chop up some vegetables and spoon filling into some mushroom caps, my favorite kind of appetizer! Continue Reading →
