Recently we cooked a "Real Simple" Beef Ragu recipe. With high hopes, we were let down. The beef ended up being quite tender, but the sauce become more like a soup, no matter how much grated cheese we added-and we really were quite generous. We had to eat the meal with spoons. I even added flour to thicken the liquid. We froze our leftovers and I plan on defrosting and creating some sort of meal out of it this evening. Suggestions are recommended.

Most recently, I made it with some fresh Rosemary a lemon half in the cavity. I served it with roasted brussel sprouts and Balthazar baguette (smeared with salted Icelandic butter).

Since the commencement of 2011, I've been craving healthy, light foods. I don't know, maybe it was the month of straight reveling for the holidays, but I am ready to feel "good" in the new year, or at least in the first few weeks. Sound familiar?
I decided to make a salad with the blood oranges I recently bought. Perusing my fridge, I noticed I had some quick-pickled cucumbers thanks to the amazing Momofuko cookbook (shout out to Kiz). Perfect. I sliced the oranges and cucs, placing them on a bed of greens. Then I whipped up a dressing of chopped scallions, ginger, soy, rice wine vinegar, and olive oil. The only thing I was missing was a touch of crumbled nuts, but it was delicious nonetheless.
