Hello to all my long lost fellow cyber chefs. I apologize for the very long absence from the blog, but unfortunately my struggle with my migraine headaches took much longer (a full two years fighting) than I had anticipated. Luckily, thanks to what my husband and I refer to as my “miracle drug,” I am just now starting to put my life back together, and part of that includes picking the blog up again. So thank you to my loyal readers who have stuck with me, and welcome to those of you who have signed on during my silence. Hopefully you will all enjoy the new posts to come.
And I hope you especially enjoy this particular dish – I think I have chosen a good one to start with. This recipe comes from the most recent issue of Bon Appetit – from their “Fast, Easy, Fresh” section. For those of you not familiar with the magazine, every month they designate a couple of pages to “every day” recipes that you can prepare quickly that are relatively healthy. This section is what I consider to be the unsung hero of the magazine. The flashy cover stories, the big photo spreads and the recipes featuring exotic ingredients are fun, but some of my best go-to meals have come from “Fast, Easy, Fresh.” So if you are a BA reader, don’t skip over this section next time (as I admit, I used to do). Instead, give the recipes a close read and see that several of them are very enticing, especially when they are offering exactly what the category promises – meals that are “Fast, Easy, Fresh.” (more…)
