    Default Your Favorite Silver Palate recipe?

    Sheila Lukens, the co-author of the Silver Palate cookbooks, died this
    weekend of brain cancer. Julia may have given us France, but Sheila
    gave us the world.

    I am only familiar with the Chicken Marbella recipe. I had it twice. The
    first time, my husband brought home leftovers from a party and it was
    amazing. The second time, I tried to make it, and it wasn't as good.

    I keep meaning to try it again.

    Definitely the banana cake. It bears no resemblance at all to plain
    old banana bread. This really makes a wonderful layer cake. I prefer
    the lemon icing used for another cake in the book, and put sliced
    bananas and strawberries in between and on top of the layers, but the
    cream cheese frosting that goes with the cake recipe is good, too.

    Just one?

    We love the chicken mirabella and the pesto recipe is my go to one. The
    lentil soup and the potato cheese soup get made every winter.

    The ham & avocado salad with lemon viniagrette.

    The sausage-stuffed french loaf is a close second.

    I like the pureed sweet potato and carrot side dish - it's a little on
    the soupy side but the taste is fabulous. Also, the fruit-stuffed pork
    loin. I'll have to try the banana cake - I have a great recipe for
    banana bread already.

    There is a fried chicken with lemon dish I really liked. I've never made
    it, but was served it. It is intensely lemony and has like 2 cups of lemon
    juice in it!

    The one that comes to mind combines wild rice, and other rices (I
    think plural--I'd have to look), raisins, nuts... Also, banana bread.

    Well, it looks interesting and pretty much foolproof. I rarely use
    Spanish olives or prunes, though, and I can imagine that if I chose
    the wrong ones when I went to the store that might affect the final
    dish. Other than that, why not try again since you have a mental
    benchmark already..... -aem

    It was several years ago, and I'd like to think that my cooking
    instincts have only improved over time, so I think yes, I will be trying
    this again soon for sure. I almost always have olives and prunes around
    too.

    Maybe this weekend if the weather stays cool - 70s as opposed to 90s....
    We are going to a football game on Saturday. I could marinate it in the
    morning and have for dinner after the game.

    Thanks for the url. Do you know what the difference is between this
    recipe and the original one? I think I'll try dried apricots, like
    one of the comments suggested.

    I think the original uses bone-in chicken. The major difference is I
    think this one is scaled down.

    We have a little break in school right now, so I am peeking in again.
    My favorite recipe from Silver Palate is the lemon buttermilk cake with
    lemon glaze. I alternate that cake and a flourless chocolate cake for
    my birthday cake almost every year.

    Growing up in the south, our potato salad was made from potatoes, boiled
    eggs, onions, pimentos, chopped celery, mayo & a little mustard. My
    mother also made German potato salad to please my father.

    My husband likes "white" potato salad, so I do a variation of their recipe.

    Scandinavian Potato Salad

    Yield: 4 servings

    8-9 new potatoes (about 1 pound)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Freshly grated pepper
    1 cup sour cream
    1/3 cup chopped red onion
    1/3 cup chopped fresh dill

    Procedure:

    1. Scrub potatoes with soft brush under running water. Quarter them and
    drop into large, heavy pot of cold, salted water. Bring to boil and cook
    until tender but still firm, 8-10 minutes after the water returns to
    boiling.

    2. When potatoes are done, drain and remove them to mixing bowl.

    3. Season with salt and pepper to taste; add sour cream to the still-hot
    potatoes and toss gently. Add onion and dill, toss again and cool to
    room temperature before refrigerating at least 4 hours.

    4. Before serving, toss again, correct seasoning and add more sour cream
    if salad seems dry.

    I use that lemon glaze for the banana cake. It is wonderful on it.
