White Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce

White Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce by Frank Fariello

This dish brings me back to my Vienna days: white asparagus and potatoes with hollandaise sauce. The appearance of asparagus in the markets of Vienna--as elsewhere--is a harbinger of Spring. Austrians (and Germans) have a thing for white asparagus. They prefer it to the green kind that is more familiar in most other places. In fact,…

Poached Pears

Poached Pears by Salad Foodie

A favorite fall dessert or breakfast fruit when pears are in season. This is a Better Homes and Garden Cookbook recipe, and the only liberty I take at times is to replace part or all of the sugar with Splenda (depending on guests and their diet requirements.) I often double the recipe (and 4 x the poaching liquid) and store pears in…
