April Showers Bring Grilled Cheese

Friday April 18, 2014

Grilled Pimento CheeseApril, it turns out, is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month. (What will they think of next?) I personally don't need a reason to make grilled cheese sandwiches, whether it's with pimento cheese and bacon, or ham and Gruyere in a croque monsieur. I'd even count tuna melts and patty melts, because that's just the kind of girl I am.

Easter Salmon

Wednesday April 16, 2014

Honey-mustard glazed salmonThe problem with Easter dinner for two, as I mentioned above, is that the traditional entree choices aren't kind to a couple. If you're not inclined toward rack of lamb, why not start your own traditional with this savory glazed salmon for Easter dinner? The honey mustard glaze might even remind you of the old-school Easter ham. Pair the salmon with the rest of this elegant Spring menu for a new Easter classic.

Traditional Easter Menu

Sunday April 13, 2014

Rack of lamb

When you're cooking for two, finding a traditional Easter menu can be a challenge. I like ham, but the thought of trying to finish even a small ham fills me with despair. Likewise with a leg of lamb. Fortunately, there's a cut of lamb that's perfect for two, and special enough for holidays -- rack of lamb. This recipe, with a tangy caper-herb sauce, is a great choice for spring. Start with warm asparagus mimosa and finish with creamy lemon mousse, and you'll have a classic Easter dinner menu.

My Favorite Things: Lemon Curd

Friday April 4, 2014

Meringue shells with lemon cream

Much as I love chocolate, most of my favorite desserts start with lemon -- lemon curd, to be precise.

It's easy to make a small batch (just enough for two desserts) but it also lasts in the fridge or freezer for weeks, so if you want to make more for later, you can. Once you have your curd made, you're only a few steps away from outstanding lemon bars or lemon mousse. With a little more work, you can even make delicate meringue shells filled with lemon cream and -- of course! -- lemon curd.
