Oven Fried Green Tomatoes

This is a great way to fix that Southern classic, fried green tomatoes, without last-minute fussing and standing over a hot frying pan. It’s also a lot healthier (=lower in fat and calories!) than the traditional version.

Pan-Broiled Salmon (Sake Nanban-yaki)

From Shizuo Tsuji, Japanese Cooking: A Simple Feast, which came out in the early eighties with an introduction by M.F.K. Fisher and color illustrations apparently subsidized by Suntory whisky, which (it’s noted) pairs well with many Japanese dishes. My friend Annie lent me this cookbook as an artifact, and because of my M.F.K. Fisher addiction. Mostly the recipes were too rigorous to make it in to my regular routine, but this salmon dish is simple and amazing.

Pecan Bars

This is a good way to use pecan pieces. (Bought from Green Acres Farm of course) This bar will bake up like a brownie. If your New Years resolution is weight loss, wait a month or so.

Perfect Grilled Zucchini with Tomatoes and Herbs

Zucchini has a tendency to overtake summer gardens — and one can make only so much zucchini bread! Facing this challenge was America’s Test Kitchen, an organization that employs dozens of cooks to develop the best recipes and methods for popular American dishes. This recipe and methodology was the result. It’s a delicious way to use some of summer’s bounty. The technique is the key to perfection — you can freely substitute other summer squash for the zucchini, and use parsley, mint, clinatro, or tarragon in place of basil, if desired.

Poofy Top Cobbler

This easy recipe is both delicious and adaptable. Peaches are an obvious choice for the fruit part, but it also works with berries of many kinds. You assemble it in layers without stirring, and the batter poofs up to make a golden brown topping.

Quick and Easy Bok Choy Stir-fry

This simple cooking method works equally well for all sorts of fresh tender vegetables, including bok choy, chinese cabbage, and broccoli. (Don’t try to substitute olive oil for the suggested oils; it has too low a smoke point for good stir-fry cookery.)
