Lemon & Garlic Green Beans

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans by John Spottiswood

It is rare to have a side dish which everyone keeps reaching for instead of the main dish. That's especially true if its a fairly simple green vegetable side. But these green beans were truly that good. We used packaged, thin french cut green beans from Trader Joes. They are tender and tasty on their own, but I've never had them taste…

It is full of flavor and the shrimp will come out brown and slightly caramelized if you pan sear them as described. We tried two different recipes the same night and compared side by side. This was the consensus, but not…

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Farro Salad

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Farro Salad by John Spottiswood

This recipe is adapted from one by Susan Spungen. I thought it was phenomenal. If you can't find Farro, you coud substitute brown rice or pearl barley, but get Farro if you can. It's wonderful. You might consider serving this as a side for Thanksgiving. It would make a great addition.

Funghi trifolati ("Truffled" mushrooms)

Funghi trifolati ("Truffled" mushrooms) by Frank Fariello

This is one of the easiest and most versatile vegetable dishes in the Italian repertoire: funghi trifolati, or 'truffled' mushooms, so called because the thinly sliced and sautéed mushrooms are said to resemble that other, more highly prized tuber. I use two methods to make funghi trifolati, and both are equally easy:

Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala by Therese

A delicious dish to serve for dinner during the week but also fancy enough to serve for a dinner party. You will notice in this recipe that i saute the mushrooms in butter and Marsala wine first this elevates the flavor of the Marsala in the mushrooms to a whole new level of flavor.
