My first recipe with Cook the Book Fridays! I was looking forward to another interesting recipe from Dorie, pasta is a dinner we turn to often in our house. I chose acorn squash as my winter selection, linguine as my pasta and substituted pecans for walnuts. This was a fairly easy recipe, Dorie’s instructions are always detailed, but this was a little more involved for a week night meal than I had anticipated. My son hated it, he tried the squash but then picked it all out. He completed his meal so kudos to him for that. My husband loved it which I was thankful for as he is not a squash lover. I enjoyed it but it is not a new favorite. I think the verdict is still out on whether we will make it again.
I plan on doing all the recipes that have been done so far in the group. I have printed the list and I am off and running. Up first is this easy miso-glazed salmon. I am flush with a new container of miso from making Puffed Grain Miso Cookies from Dorie’s Cookies so this was the logical next recipe. This was so easy a paste of miso, honey, lemon juice and soy sauce. Salmon is our favorite fish and we all liked it, or at least my son didn’t complain, ah teenagers. This one will definitely be a repeat in our house. I am happy to be cooking with you all again and look forward to all the make-ups I can do to catch up. Happy Friday!
