Scallop Saltimbocca with Golden Delicious Apples

Ina Garten’s Coquilles St. Jacques from "Make It Ahead"

Gratin of Bay Scallops from Ina Garten’s Back to Basics (Clarkson Potter 2008) and in our reader comments A recipe for Fig, Prosciutto and Gorgonzola Pizza!

          I have a confession to make.  I was having lunch with my dear friend Barbara at one of our favorite spots.  Aperitivo at 780 Third Avenue at 48th Street (212-758-9402) is sleek and reasonable. They make an amazing Pizza Bianca with figs, prosciutto and gorgonzola […]
