Need a chicken dish for a large dinner party? Look no further. Chicken Marbella is your answer.
Not only does it taste good, but since you prep it the night before (about 30 minutes of work) and just pop it in the oven before your guests arrive, it is not too taxing on the day of the dinner party.

It felt like spring this weekend, even though were are still piles of snow all around. David Wippman (a friend of Phil's from high school) came for dinner and I made a quintessential spring menu: lamb, roasted baby potatoes and parmesan-roasted asparagus. My friend, Diana, had mentioned making panna cotta when I saw her earlier in the week, so I decided to make that for dessert. (It can be made ahead of time, which is very handy.)

My old roommate, Michelle, used to make the best chocolate chip plus everything-in-the-kitchen-sink cookies. One time she used tahini for half of the butter. Those were really tasty, and I told her so between mouthfuls of cookie!

I'm a fan of tomato soup, especially paired with grilled cheese sandwiches. This soup is easy to make, uses ingredients you can find all year-round, and has a bright tomatoey taste. It is easily made vegan by swapping the chicken broth for vegetable broth.

I made this last night for the first time and it came out perfectly. It's a quick recipe that is simple to prepare, but is very flavorful. Choose a nice thick salmon fillet and cut it into four equal-sized pieces for best results.
