Lemony Chicken with Green Beans

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans - simple enough for every day; elegant enough for company! There are potatoes, too, making it a complete meal. Try it with artichokes in the spring!

A gorgeous dish, it really should have a fancy name…a little wine, lemon and a handful of sun-dried tomatoes spark up gorgeous green beans, chicken and a few potatoes. Fingerling potatoes or Yukons are perfect but a red potato makes a great budget stand in. And everything is napped with that bright sauce. Shhh…don’t tell anyone how simple this dish is and they’ll think you’re a genius.

Snowy Chocolate Truffles

 A simple but delish rustic chocolate truffle rolled in powdered sugar

I just love a simple, rolled truffle, don’t you? Well, I won’t turn down one with a gorgeous chocolate coating, but for making, you can’t beat these, tossed in confectioner’s sugar or cocoa, and besides, we all know the center is the best part anyway, right?

Buche de Noel Yule Log, slightly adapted from Martha Stewart's Birch de Noel

Buche de Noel Yule Log

I try to make this cake every Christmas season – from Martha Stewart’s 2003 Christmas Book. She calls it Birch de Noel, and I always thought it was fitting because up here in the North Country all the logs are generally covered with white in the winter. Of course, it’s divine, with the chocolate cake wrapped around a White Chocolate Mousse filling, all topped by sparkling billows of snowy white Seven Minute Frosting.
