  • beet salad in sour cream dressing
    Beets have been on my radar for a while. I often associate them with the delicious salad they serve at SF’s House of Prime Rib and with the salad bar at Portico’s. I’ve never prepared them myself though, but with the onset of the CSA food basket that my friend Brent bequeathed to me, I was obliged to finally try. I went to the index of my favorite go-to resource, Jacques Pepin’s Essential Pepin, and found this recipe for beet salad with sour cream and onions. Like many of this recipes, this one turned out delicious. beetsonionsour creamcider vinegarsaltblack peppersugar
  • chicken caesar salad recipe from the anthonys
    When our family travelled to Washington DC in 2010 to visit the Anthonys, their long-time family friends, they came home with this amazing chicken caesar salad recipe. We'll often make this after a trip to Costco. We'll shred the breast from the rotisserie chicken, make the croutons from their roasted garlic bread, and cut up romaine lettuce from there. This is a versatile and tasty dish that can be portioned as an appetizer or as a meal. We are always excited when this dish is on the menu for the day. chicken breastsolive oilgarlic breadgarlicsaltlemon juiceWorcestershire saucelight mayonnaisesalt and pepperanchovy pasteextra light olive oilromaineparmesan cheese

  • cook's illustrated thai chicken soup (doubled for parties and to store)
    We made this soup for friends and family during the 2013 holiday season. Everyone loved it! Processing the lemongrass and shallots felt like the most time-consuming part, so next time we will try chopping it all up in a food processor. Adapted and adjusted from the base recipe published in the January-February 2007 issue of Cook's Illustrated. vegetable oillemongrassshallotscilantrofish saucechicken brothcoconut milkcoconut milksugarwhite mushroomsskinless chicken breastslime juiceThai red curry pastefish saucecilantro leavesserrano chilesscallionslimes
