Sear-Roasted Salmon with Honey Glazed Fennel

I tried this recipe earlier this week. It was pretty good. Actually, it was more pretty than good. So here's a nice picture.

Mad Hungry

Lucinda Scala Quinn is one of my new favorite people.

Because she came up with this recipe for Chicken Chili.

I made it. It was delish, to borrow a Martha-ism.

You broil these guys:

and you get this:

Then you add chipotles (!), 1/4 cup chili powder, and lotsa other good stuff. It is crazy good. I often don't get final pictures of some of the best recipes I make because I am too busy eating it. That happened this time.

Mrs. Quinn has a cookbook, Mad Hungry: Feeding Men and Boys, which has all kinds of other good stuff in it. It is now on my Christmas wish list. You should put it on yours.

I just discovered that she has a blog, too.

Are you Mad Hungry yet?

my mother made this sorbet

...and oh was it good. The recipe uses raspberries as the fruit, but my mom made one with frozen triple berries and one with mangoes. Ridiculously easy (you don't even need and ice cream maker) and so yum. Recipe here. Martha came through again.

apple crisp

I think the recipe I used was this one from Martha.

I'm a bad aunt.

...because these are the only new pictures I have on my nephew. The camera never seems to be close by when I get to see him. I'll try and get some better pictures soon.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake

This recipe is from Martha. It's one of the best chocolate cakes I've ever had from scratch. And it's the easiest one, too.

The first time I made it I followed the frosting recipe, but the second time I used 1 stick of butter, 8 oz cream cheese, and about 1/2 c less powdered sugar. I thought it tasted too buttery (I know, as if that's possible, right?) and needed more of a cream cheesy taste.

I'm pretty sure I've posted about bruchetta before. But that was a while ago. So here it is again.

For the topping: Roma tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, s+p.
For the bread: Brush both sides of thinly sliced baguette with olive oil and rub each side with a piece of raw garlic clove. Sprikle with a little salt. Broil on top rack of oven for 1-2 mins each side, then top with...the topping.

Pear Galette

recipe from Martha.

Did you know that Galette and Crostata are the same thing - Galette is French and Crostata is Italian? I just found that out today. Thanks, Martha.
