Friday Night Dinner: Baked Cod & Potatoes with Horseradish Cream & Orange-Olive Salad

title

So, on the fish, it’s not really a cream sauce per se. I was intrigued/concerned with the idea of baking mayonnaise in a sauce, but, this worked well. I used some fancy-pants mayonnaise made with olive oil. La de da!

Okay, so I also found the fabled horseradish mustard called for in the recipe at Whole Foods, Stonewall Kitchens brand. I got it, mainly because I love me some fancy mustards.

WCC 37: Lemon Tart Love

Okay, I guess all good things must come to an end. Weekend Cookbook Challenge being no exception. Thanks Sara for creating and managing such a fun food blogging event for the last 37 months! Wow, I guess it has been along time! Sara rocks big time.

This month’s theme for February is “love”. This recipe is something I made for dessert on Valentine’s Day, so I think it fits. Tarte au Citron. It’s from the cookbook, Bouchon, by Thomas Keller. I really want to add an ! on the end of that for some reason… Bouchon!
