Recipes Worth Doing Again

I cook a lot; it is my obsession. Thus, I am always experimenting – trying to make recipes better or trying to recreate excellent food I have eaten in restaurants. Here is a selection of those I feel are worthy of doing again. Are they perfect? Probably not. I am constantly tweeking my recipes – never truly satisfied. But hey, that is the joy of puttering around the kitchen. And when you come to my house,  that is usually where I am. That or on the porch watching an amazing sunset.
