“Crust-less sandwich bread, spread with a mixture of cream and blue cheeses, wrapped around an asparagus spear, then baked with a light coating of butter until golden brown. Great to have on hand in the freezer and pop in the oven for unexpected company or an anytime craving for something delicious!”

Pan Simmered Pacific Black Cod

Have you ever tried pacific black cod (also known as sable fish)? It’s a delicate, fatty fish, sustainably fished, filled with good Omega-3s, and absolutely delicious. The Whole Foods in my neighborhood has been carrying it with regularity. Here is a beautifully simple way to prepare it, taught to me by my friend and avid fisherman Hank Shaw.

The fillets are simmered in a Japanese-style broth of sake, soy sauce, rice vinegar, oil, and ginger. While the fillets are cooking, you spoon the simmering sauce over the top of the fillets so that the top gets infused with the sauce as well. The fillets are then topped with toasted sesame seeds and thinly sliced green onions.

Glazed Baked Ham

Preparing a glazed ham for Easter? Check out these, from the archives. First published 2009. ~Elise

A big baked ham is one of the easiest things to prepare for a holiday celebration.

Ham and Asparagus Strata

You know those times when you make something so good, you can’t wait for an excuse to make it again? This is one of those times. Wow. Perfect for a spring family gathering, such as an Easter brunch, Mother’s Day, or a graduation. This ham and asparagus strata is basically a breakfast casserole, taken up a notch or two. It’s a layered casserole with cubes of rustic bread, eggs, Gruyere cheese, milk, cream, diced ham, and asparagus.

It feeds a crowd. You can easily make ahead. Leftovers (if you have them, which I seriously doubt) will reheat beautifully for days.

Hawaiian Ginger-Chicken Stew

Hawaiian Ginger-Chicken Stew Recipe
This chicken stew has a bold ginger-flavored broth and provides a whole serving of dark leafy greens in each bowl. We tried it with frozen chopped mustard greens (available in large supermarkets) and it was even quicker to prepare and just as delicious. Serve with brown rice.
