Turkey Taco Salad with Honey Cornbread Topping

September 25th, 2008 by Lynn Hollenbeck

Healthy, fast, economical, tasty and adaptable to individual preferences – this satisfies every criterion for a weekday family dinner.

I broiled it with lemon, soy sauce, rice vinegar and fresh grated ginger. She poached it in Memmi sauce, a Japanese noodle soup base. Both versions reportedly delicious. Next time the steelhead made an appearance, I combined the two recipes. The maple syrup glaze at the end – her idea, and a stroke of inspiration that elevates this creation to the Steelhead Hall of Fame.

Spicy Steak Fries

September 22nd, 2008 by Jean Gleason

This is adapted from a Gourmet recipe published in January 2002. Sweet potatoes are not big in my house, so I replaced the sweet potatoes in the original recipe with good old spuds … and this is now a favorite. It goes equally well with an omelet or hamburgers.
