This was delicious and even great leftover the next day – I made a few changes as noted below:

–substituted walnuts for the pecans (just because I like them better)
–added some dried cranberries
–added some chopped red onion since I had some extra sitting around
–I roasted the sprouts instead

Next time I may try a balsamic vinagrette rather than the red wine vinaigrette or even just a balsamic syrup on the salad.



No real recipe for this but inspired by Barefoot Contessa, who is a big fan of roasting vegetables.

Preheat over to 400.  Trim ends off of asparagus.  Drizzle with olive oil and kosher salt.  Roast for about 20 minutes.

Spinach Gratin

Yet another Barefoot recipe.  Haven’t made this in a long time but it’s definitely worth it.

Corn Salad

An all-time favorite from the Barefoot Contessa.  I usually double to make sure I have leftovers.  Great for barbecues as can (and should) be prepared ahead of time.


Pesto, Spinach and Peas

This is crazy easy and tasty.  Great for big crowds.
