Back by Popular Demand: Positively Luscious Salmon with Anchovy-Garlic Butter...

When looking for something truly delicious to make this week, I was reminded of this NYT recipe for salmon with anchovy-garlic butter. For the record, I don’t like anchovies. Also for the record, this is one of the most delicious fish recipes I have ever eaten. Never say never.

My Luscious Potato Gratin

In search of an easy potato casserole good enough to serve to company, I decided to trial Martha Stewart’s recipe for a classic potato gratin. I had two criteria. It not only had to be delicious. It also had to lend itself to being cooked ahead and reheated in the oven the next day.

Chickpea Stew with Rosemary

Whether you call them chickpeas or garbanzo beans, if you love these versatile beans you welcome new recipes using them. This stew- you might consider it a soup- is easy to make. As an extra bonus, it is not only vegetarian, but vegan too. I cooked it for about an hour, but you can cook it just until the ingredients are tender, about 30 minutes. 

Quick and Easy: Pierogi with Peppers

When you’re hungry, but don’t have the time or energy to cook, try our Pierogi with Peppers. Not my grandma’s recipe – her delicious version was homemade and deep fried – but still tasty and satisfying.

Even Easier Homemade Pizza

There is a lot of mystery and drama around when it comes to home cooking. In fact, you might be reading this and thinking pizza has to be way too hard to make. To be honest, the most difficult part is remembering to take the dough out of the fridge in time. Make it a family project, and you’ll have fun too.
