For this light, healthy dish, Jean-Georges Vongerichten steams snapper fillets in foil packets with a piquant mix of ginger, lemongrass, green Thai chiles, miso, fish sauce, tarragon, scallions and orange zest.

we were wondering about last Friday? Well we didn't waste any time working it into a sweet treat...
This lightly sweet pastry, studded with caramelized apple, is one component of an elaborate dish entitled Brillat-Savarin. Its major ingredients—apples, crème fraîche, Calvados and the Brillat-Savarin cheese—all come from Normandy in France.
We got the idea for this refreshing drink from the New York City mixologist Dale DeGroff; we love the fresh yellow color of the drink. The recipe appeared on the SAVEUR 100 list from our January/February 2010 issue.
This vegetarian twist on the corn dog, with melty pepper jack cheese and a crispy jalapeño-laden crust, has flavors reminiscent of Chiles Rellenos and far surpasses boring fried mozzarella sticks served with marinara sauce. Try dipping these snacks in spicy Roasted Tomato Salsa and serving them with a round of margaritas for a little Tex-Mex flair. Special equipment: You will need a deep-frying/candy thermometer and a tall, narrow container or drinking glass, such as a pint glass, for this recipe. You will also need wood coffee-stirrers. If you can’t find them, substitute 6-inch wood skewers instead. What to buy: If you can’t find 8-ounce blocks of pepper jack cheese, cut a 1-pound block into 16 smaller rectangular blocks that are approximately 2 inches long and 1 inch wide and tall. This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Corn Dogs project.
Henry Bain, a waiter at Louisville’s Pendennis Club, created this sauce more than 100 years ago, but it has remained a favorite in Kentucky, especially on Derby Day. It’s typically served on the side, but we decided to slather it all over the tenderloin, giving the meat a sweet, spicy glaze. This recipe was featured as part of our Kentucky Derby Day menu.
This quick and tasty sandwich packs nutrition for breakfast or lunch. For Nunes, this would equal two ounces whole grains, one ounce meat, about 70 discretionary calories (from the cream cheese and cheddar cheese), and about 1/3 cup of her dairy servings.
Inspired by the Spanish tortilla, an egg and potato cake that's a regular at tapas bars, but turned off by the shenanigans involved in cooking it the classic way (sliding it out of the pan, flipping it over and sliding it back into the pan to finish cooking), I applied Italian frittata methodology to the ingredients (no flipping involved) to make it a lot easier, added some kale for color and vitamins, then finished it off with a little cheese because, let's be honest, a little cheese makes most things even better.
This top-rated pumpkin bread offers great flavor without the extra fat and calories of traditional pumpkin bread recipes. A sprinkling of chopped pecans on top adds great seasonal flavor as well.
Unlike in gluey takeout versions of stir-fry, the sauce here is perfectly balanced and light. The Chinese technique of velveting keeps the chicken succulent and tender, and prepping the stir-fry ingredients while the chicken marinates makes this dish fast—maybe even faster than delivery. What to buy: Although hoisin means “seafood” in Cantonese, there’s actually no seafood in hoisin sauce. This thick, sweet condiment is made from sugar, soybeans, garlic, sesame seeds, chiles, and spices. Look for it in the ethnic aisle at most grocery stores or in Asian markets. Special equipment: If you don’t have a wok, Grace Young suggests a large frying pan as a good substitute, but don’t use a nonstick pan because the high heat may damage it. Read our review of Young’s cookbook.

Fried slices of prosciutto provide a crisp contrast to sautéed escarole.
Time: 10 minutes. The interplay of salty cheese, rosemary, and pungent onion makes this pizza bold and flavorful.
This salad can change with the seasons; try persimmons in the fall, pears or blood oranges in the winter, and nectarines when they are in season. You can substitute mixed baby greens for the arugula and frisée. What to buy: When purchasing nectarines, look for freestone varieties—their flesh separates easily from the pit. This dish was featured as part of our Recipes for Summer Ingredients photo gallery.
It's late July and unless you live in San Francisco where it was 60 and foggy this weekend, you probably don't want to stand over a hot stove today. And if you've planted a big garden, you may be looking for something to do with all those vegetables. You also may be planning a lot of picnics and other outdoor eating events, so something portable would be nice, too. And let's not forget how handy it is to have something that can be made in advance and actually gets better as it sits in the refrigerator. Finally, whatever this is, it had better taste really good. And it does: piquant with sherry vinegar and lemon and a hint of garlic, yet subtle enough to let the flavor of the vegetables come through. Let me introduce you to Lorrie Mae's Amazing Marinated Vegetables! Recipe below the jump.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the polenta.
Your favorite blue cheese is essential for decadence here. Prep: 12 min.; Cook: 5 min.
This is a festive and unusual dish that has converted several ardent beet-haters into beet-lovers. I like to use a mixture of mild Chiogga (striped), red, and/or yellow beets in this recipe. If you bought your beets with their tops, the greens can be sautéed (see greens recipe in this article) and served alongside, or used another time.
If you like food with a little spicy heat, then this Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup will have your taste buds doing the Lambada. Round out the meal with corn muffins from your grocer's bakery or servings of packaged Spanish rice.
Frittelle di Riso, or rice fritters, are a winter tradition in much of Italy, and (In Florence) especially popular on San Giuseppe, Saint Joseph's (March 19).

This is a really good dish for kids. Even though they may not eat spinach on its own, I've never had a problem feeding this to my kids. The reason they like it so much is because they can suck on the spaghetti, and the mascarpone and cooking water make a fantastic sauce.

We should probably be storing our tomato chutney for future months when summer tomatoes are but a distant memory. But once we started thinking about the combination of sweet and tangy chutney with creamy Cotswold cheese, there was no turning back. It was time for grilled cheese.
With cool, creamy whipped topping and sweet fresh strawberries, this moist strawberry cake is a summertime treat.
jogged our memory of a similar childhood dessert that's not quite a pudding but not quite a cake, either. It's a...Spongette. Read below for the recipe...

Serve this smoky, flavorful salmon with Roasted Asparagus with Dijon-Lemon Sauce.

Every year during Passover, the restaurant hosts a Seder meal, which always includes these homemade fish patties. Game plan: Brad makes the gefilte fish over a two- to three-day period, so plan accordingly.
