Channeling Julia Child
I put some black pepper on each side and seared them and then finished them off in the oven. As they were cooking, I microwaved some potatoes, scooped out the middle and added an ounce of light cream cheese, cut up some green onions, pepper and skim milk. I returned the dreamy mixture to the potato shells, topped them with a little asiago and broiled them for a few minutes. While that was going on, I made a quick garlic herb butter and after the steaks rested, I put about 1/2 tbsp of it on top and served it to the salivating hubby. Here's a crappy pic of it with the point and shoot...
He sunk in his chair, eyes rolled back, groaning that groan that symbolizes total foodgasm and makes every cook, professional or not, feel accomplished. It was damn good. He raved from beginning to end and even gave me a big ol' smooch. He said that we have eaten better in the past few years since we began our journey than we ever did when we ate whatever we wanted when we wanted. Curious yet true!
What signature dish do you make ensures you'll get rave reviews?
