Recipes »Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

from Epicurious

These Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes may not be much to look at but I can’t tell you ¬†how delicious they are. We were raving with every bite.

They are healthier than other recipes I’ve seen because there’s only a tb of butter. And don’t let the name Buttermilk unnerve you, it’s less fat and calories than whole milk.

I am a big buttermilk fan, so it’s nice to find a recipe that displays it so nicely.

This recipe is very easy, but leave yourself about an hour for cook time. It made me, a person with no problems with boxed mashed, never want to have potatoes any other way.

Recipes »Cajun Style Blackened Halibut, Collard Greens, Potato Gratin

from Epicurious and Martha

An evening at Astrid and Marcus’ always means we are in for a special meal. They have the patience and attention to detail to offer us friends restaurant quality food with the comfort of friendly gossip while eating off our laps and letting Van chill out on the rug.

Recently we were treated to the best collard greens I’ve ever had, a lovely kicked up blackened halibut and a refreshingly mild, lemony potato gratin. Smoky beers, great wine and a thinly sliced fennel salad (that has me wanting to buy a mandoline slicer) rounded out the delicious meal. Thanks guys, yummy and memorable as always.

Recipes »Balsamic Yams

Food.com

Yams seem to only get a walk on role for dinner during Thanksgiving and then, it’s always candied and covered in marshmallows – not that I object, I love that dish, but I wanted to try something different and savory with the root for dinner the other night and after pages of candied yam recipes found this one for Balsamic Roasted Yams. It’s an easy prep and only 40 minutes to bake. I love any roasted vegetable, but particularly root vegetables and particularly in the fall, so this was perfect.

Recipes »Brussel Sprout Chips

brussel sprout chips From the week of May 4th:

Turning a brussel sprout into a “chip”,?a snack that even my veggie fearing husband devoured in seconds, is brilliant. I first got wind of this recipe on the great food blog Serious Eats who in turn found it on Real Food for Real People (which looks like it could be a great spot for more yummy recipes, honey buttered popcorn, anyone?). I loved these so much I made them twice in one week.
