Oven-Roasted Salmon with Green Romesco Sauce

Salmon with Green Romesco

Romesco, a Spanish pepper and nut-based sauce, is typically made with red bell peppers, producing a bright red and flavorful summery sauce. This version mixes it up a bit with mildly spiced poblano peppers and it’s easily one of my most favorite things to do with poblanos. It’s also suitably fall-ish, in my opinion.

Besides, no matter the season, what’s not to like about roasted peppers, vinegar, garlic, olive oil, and nuts? This romesco recipe is adapted from the cookbook, Grilling for Life by Bobby Flay. But really, I’ll let you in on a . . . → Read More: Oven-Roasted Salmon with Green Romesco Sauce

FFwD: Green-as-Spring Pork Stew

Green as Spring Pork Stew

Originally, this French Fridays with Dorie recipe called for veal. I haven’t really eaten veal since becoming an un-vegetarian (uh, 1994 1995?) and I didn’t really see the need to use it here. Not when there’s…PORK! So, yeah, I subbed the veal for pork shoulder. And I also made mine more broth-y by using a little bit less meat and adding some wine to de-glaze the pan.

FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is for Quiche Maraichère, which is basically a vegetable-filled quiche, but with the cheese on top. The recipe can be found online here, but of course, it’s also in Around My French Table.

My tart crust was my favorite whole wheat crust and although it shrank quite a bit during the par-baking, it turned out just fine.

I used carrot, onion, garlic, and some artichoke hearts for my vegetables (I did not use the celery or the leeks) – mainly because I did not have . . . → Read More: FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

Well, this French Fridays with Dorie was a little different — but in a really good way. I didn’t quite know what to expect but it seemed sort of like a scallop pizza to me. And what does pizza need? A little cheese. I know some people do not like to mix cheese with seafood but — I am not one of those people.

I also decided to add a little color to the top, by way of some chopped arugula leaves. The pop of green was exactly what . . . → Read More: FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

Food Blogger Cookbook Swap: Tate's Bake Shop Baking for Friends

I was recently a participant in the Food Blogger Cookbook Swap, hosted by Alyssa of EverydayMaven and Faith of An Edible Mosiac. I sent a cookbook to a fellow food blogger and received a cookbook in return – Tate’s Bake Shop: Baking for Friends from Lisa at Flour me with Love. Thanks, Lisa!

I’m trying to actually do more baking, so this was a wonderful surprise. And it also just so happens that I recently bought a madeleine pan, so even though I was tempted by . . . → Read More: Food Blogger Cookbook Swap: Vanilla-Cardamom Madeleines & Tate's Bake Shop Baking for Friends
