Polenta Budino with Plum Marmellata

Polenta Budino with Plum Marmellata

Polenta Budino - like a cornmeal pudding with a dreamy plum compote. From Mario Batali. Kind of like "Indian Pudding" only better!

I could hardly believe my eyes as I turned the pages of this month’s Bon Appetit…and saw this recipe in the R.S.V.P. section. A dessert from the famed Babbo in NYC. Now, I don’t know about you, but I may never have a chance to eat at Babbo, but this? This dessert is easy to pull off.

Here’s another one of my recipes that tastes and looks all “gourmet” but gets dinner on the table in no time at all – Soused Chicken. I’ve made this for years and the somewhat unusual flavoring gets rave reviews. Seriously, people think you’re going all fancy whenever wine and a little cream or half and half are in the picture.

Chicken with Lemon & Artichokes

Happy Mother’s Day! I thought it would be perfect to post a favorite dish I used to make for my Mother after she no longer cooked. She loved this Chicken with Lemon and Artichokes. The sauce has a lot of flavor and is bright, garlicky and lemony. Couscous soaks it up beautifully and when served on a platter, this simple dish seems like so much more.
