This roasted broccoli recipe, adapted from the Barefoot Contessa, is really wonderful. It has a lot of flavor. We served it with a mild pasta, and it was just a wonderful combination. Don't be worried by the lemon juice and zest. They impart a subtle flavor that adds a nice dimension to this dish.

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Italian-American in origin, this soup was really misnamed. “Wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language for 'minestra maritata', a reference to the fact that greens and meat go well together. (Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…

German Potato Salad (Insalata Patate Tedesca)

German Potato Salad (Insalata Patate Tedesca) by Robyn Savoie

Normally I am not a German Potato Salad eater but I love this tangy, potato salad and it has become a favorite of mine. I like it best served warm, when the potatoes have just been tossed in the hot bacon-and-mustard dressing. Though it is also delicious at room temperature, on a buffet or picnic table. I found this recipe in:…
