  • Chocolate Mousse
    A rich and elegant dessert that is easier than it appears. When preparing caramel it is imperative to use non-organic, white cane sugar and to avoid stirring the mixture. cane sugarwatersaltbutterheavy whipping creamvanilla extractflaky saltdark chocolatemilkegg yolkegg whitessaltsugar
  • edamame hummus
    This recipe is a testament to how great recipes travel from household to household. I got this recipe from my sister-in-law, who in turn got it from the wife of her father-in-law's cousin. If you taste something that moves you from someone's home, ask for the recipe. Not only will you in turn share it with your loved ones, but you'll also make great connections with others. I've gathered many of my "keeper" recipes this way.

  • gabrielle hamilton's fennel baked in cream (finocchio al forno)
    This is a decadent and delicious way to enjoy fennel. Because fennel is the primary seasoning in pepperoni, our home smelled like pepperoni while it baked. This can be served as a side, or even as main course if paired with a simple salad. We usually make this dish around the time we make make GQ's sazerac-cured salmon so that we can make full use of all the fennel pieces. fennelheavy creamparmesankosher saltblack pepperunsalted butterparmesan
  • ina garten's fresh whiskey sour
    I ordered a whiskey sour the night I met my husband. This basic recipe can be scaled up or down as needed. It uses home made sweet and sour mix and can be measured and prepared in advance. When happy hour begins, just add the maraschino cherry to the serving glass, shake the mix with ice, and pour. Brilliant! Adapted from Barefoot Contessa.
