    Found this in one of those Moosewood cookbooks--forget which one--and just love it.

    Roasted Asparagus


    1 lb. asparagus, cleaned and tough ends removed
    2 tsp. olive oil
    1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
    1/8 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 tsp. minced fresh tarragon (basil is good too!)

    Mix all ingredients except asparagus in bowl then toss with the asparagus. Arrange on a pan and roast at 400 degrees for 20 or 25 minutes, maybe turning them halfway through.

    Nice in the springtime, especially, when the asparagus is coming in furiously! ;)

    Hmmm. I love asparagus caserole. I once made a very tasty one, but all attempts after that ended in failure, mainly because I could not make what the recipe called "white sauce" without scalding it. I will have to try your recipe. At least it does not call for white sauce.

    Thanks Pecker,

    This thread is wonderful. I am going to have to go upstairs and dig out one of my aunt's pie recipes. My grandfather wouldnt let us in the house until we had paid him tribute of one of her pies. It is a shame that my psychotic cousin stole the last coconut pie my aunt sent him. The poor old dear only had a few things that he asked for and my cousin really deserved a beat down for that.! Well I am off it get my recipe book.....

    Okay, here I go with a recipe that no one will try!

    Poulet Gaïotti

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 small pkg. Philadelphia cream cheese
    4 green onions, chopped (including tops)
    12 rashers turkey bacon
    Butter-flavoured cooking spray
    Olive oil-flavoured cooking spray
    Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

    Pound the chicken breasts to ¼" - ½" thickness. Spray breasts with butter-flavoured cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Divide block of cream cheese into four equal portions and place one on the middle of each chicken breast. Press some chopped green onion into the cream cheese. Bring up the edges of each chicken breast to cover the cream cheese; secure with toothpicks. Wrap each chicken breast bundle with three rashers of turken bacon, securing with toothpicks. Spray the whole with olive oil-flavoured cooking spray. Bake 30 minutes at 325°, then transfer to the broiler for a few minutes until the bacon is slightly crisp.

    Serve with a salad of baby spinach leaves, cucumber, celery, mushrooms and grated Romano cheese dressed with a tarragon and white wine vinaigrette. A glass of fumé blanc goes well with the meal.

    If your gonna Cook, COOK!

    I only substitute applesauce into my cakes, and use real milk instead of water.

    One of my favorites is to poach eggs in Bloody Mary Mix (Hot & spicy) and serve with parmesan cheese.

    Thanks to my late aunt, here is a quick recipe for a blueberry pie that is easy to make. When invited to a "bring something to eat" party, I usually make it.

    Blueberry Pie:

    Two 9-inch baked pie crusts, cooled
    3/4 box of 4X powdered white sugar, preferably sifted
    One 8 oz tub of softened cream cheese
    1/2 cup of chopped nuts (my aunt used pecans)
    One tub of Cool Whip
    Blueberries

    Thoroughly blend the cream cheese and sugar, preferably with a powered mixer
    Spread the mixture into the two pie crusts
    Sprinkle with chopped nuts
    Spread with blueberries
    Cover with Cool Whip
    Thoroughly chill in the refrigerator before serving
