Our one-year wedding anniversary was celebrated this past Sunday; and though we vowed to use our wedding china for a home-cooked dinner date to celebrate, I thought I'd surprise Alex with a less-expected dish for the antique dinnerware.
The richness of risotto is absolutely perfect for this time of year. I especially love how much the winter white theme of the Caramelized Supper Club comes through; the subtle sweetness of crab and hominy balance the sharp parmesan and bite of al dente arborio rice. Cozy up to a bowl with crisp white wine or champagne. You'll never forget this one!
Challah bread is the coveted tradition of my Jewish upbringing; it's the sweet and unifying symbol of our Shabbas meal together every Friday evening, whether spent with family or friends or during Jewish Summer Camp meals where I met my husband. It's also the greatest french toast foundation out there.
If you've never had smashed potatoes, you'll quickly see what you've been missing! A crisp exterior with an interior that melts in your mouth, this recipe adds irresistible flavors of garlic and parmesan. Plus, the presentation is gorgeous (and the red potato matches the Supper Club spread quite nicely!).
