May Bon Appetit's Cover Recipe Dinner

As some know, once a month I cook the cover recipe of Bon Appetit. With all the demands on my time, this meal went down to the wire. But it is always a little oasis from "real life." I found the herb-and-cheese foccacia and dessert from my fellow bloggers. A teaser is below. Full details can be found at Cover Girls Cooking.

The salad was fresh from the Saint Paul Farmer's Market.

The herb-and-cheese foccacia was from Katherine Aucoin's Smoky Mountain Cafe.

The Beef Shanks and Sausage Ragu was the cover recipe of Bon Appetit.




And the "sweet-death-by-chocolate" brownies which was culled from the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook can be found in Foodie with a Little Thyme.
`
Deciding to do these Cover Girl Dinners was one of those ideas that have worked out better than expected. I not only am actually fulfilling a New Year's Resolution (that's a first!) but have a built in excuse to say, "Stop the world, I want to get off and cook." Something that everyone should try! Again, for more details about the dinner, go to Cover Girls Cooking. I had a grand month cooking from your blogs and am busy compiling the listing so hope to catch you later.
