In this journal I share a lot of the recipes I find online or develop myself. Since people often ask me for pointers to those, here's an index, dated to stay at the top of the page:

Occasionally I wonder why I read The Amateur Gourmet, especially now that he's living in LA. And then he posts a totally game-changing recipe like this one for Roasted Hamburgers. So easy, so much less mess than any other method, scalable, and delicious! Hamburgers have been a rare occurrence in our household, but I think that may be changing.

I paired them with this recipe for Duck Fat Hash Browns, which were also very tasty. I doubled the recipe, which may have been unnecessary, and think I didn't use quite enough fat, so further experimentation may be in order. On the other hand, when I've already got a 475F oven, maybe I'll try roasting the potatoes instead.

Wow, it's been a long time since I've cooked something new, or at least since I've recorded it.

Tonight we had friends over for dinner and tried:

One of Jason's favorite things is strawberry shortcake. So for his birthday cake I made this recipe. He was amused and pleased and it was really light and delicious, a wonderful summer dssert!

I've fallen behind, but the tabs are still open, so let me first say that for Valentine's Day I made...#8 Pan-Seared Pork Belly )

I am reminded to post about that, because tonight I cooked something else I'd never made before: sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem artichokes. I noticed them at the market and thought it was time for something new, so I bought a couple of pounds of them and made...#9 Lemon Chicken with Jerusalem Artichokes )

It's the start of a new year, so I'm starting my count again. With the two new recipes I made for Christmas dinner, I hit fifty for 2010. I didn't have a specific goal last year, so I'm pleased with a nice round number and excited to keep challenging myself to try new things.

Greek Couscous with Chicken & Feta )

I find I get very interesting results by using "ultimate" in my recipe search terms. Tonight I decided to try this recipe, which had an intriguing secret ingredient. The sauce was wonderful! Rich and complex and delicious. Served with mashed potatoes and roasted garlic cabbage it made a very good, hearty meal. I'd be very interested to serve it to someone who doesn't like pickles and see what they'd make of it (fortunately the pork is quite good even without the sauce).
