Pasta alla Puttanesca with (or without) Shrimp



I am making a concerted effort to put some great vegetarian recipes together for all kinds of reasons—health, being eco-friendly and just giving us all more options for terrific meals. Recently, a fellow member of my Food Writer’s Boot Camp went to a lot of trouble to send me a great vegetarian main dish which I am working on sharing with you soon.  But it the meantime, this recipe, which came out of the February/March “Fine Cooking”, is a fantastic discovery.  You can satisfy your vegetarian eaters and/or you can take it to another level by adding some shrimp in the last few minutes.  So one dish can be served two ways—at the same seating.  It’s perfect for families where increasingly there’s a vegetarian at the table.

Smoked Salmon and Potato Breakfast Casserole


       The food pantry that our church sponsors is called The Brown Bag Program and provides lunch for about 80 people a day.  It costs about $3.25 to fill a bag and, like every other charity in the City, we’ve been feeling the pinch of the recession.  The numbers needing help are up and the help is down.  To publicize our plight, we hosted a breakfast at Christ and St. Stephen’s and I made this delicious and different breakfast casserole.  What’s great about it is that you can do the whole thing the night before, chill it and bake it in the morning.
I’m sharing the recipe for 6 servings because if you’re not feeding an Army, salvation or otherwise, you won’t need the quantity I was making.  But you certainly can double it for a crowd.  For the recipe all you have to do is scroll down.  And if you’d like to contribute to The Brown Bag Program, all you have to do is follow this link: http://www.csschurch.org

Golden Potatoes with Caper Brown-Butter Crumbs



More frequently than I wish, something absolutely delicious that I want to share with you simply doesn’t photograph as appetizingly as I would hope. Sometimes, I have to make a judgment as to whether the photograph is just going make everyone want to turn the page. But then there are dishes like this one; such a flavor hit that I don’t want you to miss it, even if it isn’t the most photogenic.
