Gourmet's Top Ten, April '09

It's that time of the month again! When all of you get to play armchair chef and order me around in the kitchen. The new issue of Gourmet is out, and I'm itching to get my hands dirty. Also, to get a bite of that strawberry tart that's on the cover. Does that not look yum? When, oh when, will spring actually SPRING??

Here are the editors' top ten favorites (with comments by *me*):
Golden Potatoes with Caper Brown-Butter Crumbs
*Looks like haute hash browns.*
Ham and Rice Croquettes
*Let's have a cajun cocktail party!*
Spice-Rubbed Cornish Hens with Haroseth Stuffing and Sherry Jus
*Just so you know, I can get frozen Cornish hens at my local market sometimes.*
Strawberry Mascarpone Tart with Port Glaze
*Oh, come to Mama!*
Rustic French Meatloaf
*Would give me a chance to use my gorgeous little Le Creuset pate loaf pan--always a plus.*
Sweet-and-Sour Celery
*I'm thinking this one doesn't stand a chance in the polls. At least, I kind of hope. Ugh.*
Lemon Glazed Butter Cake
*Two of my favorite flavors united in one cake? Sign me up!*
Spinach and Red-Pepper Calzones
*Cute little packages, aren't they?*
Herb-Roasted Pork Loin
*Could this recipe possibly beat my favorite Pork Tenderloin with Apples and Onions?*
Pasta in Garlic Almond Sauce
*Tempting, especially since I have a bag of that darling curly pasta just waiting in my pantry.*

So what tickles your taste buds? Which recipe calls out to you and makes you curious? Vote for one, and I'll make it, documenting every step with my little honey of a camera. Customized, personalized food porn!


I'm loving the sound of the ham and rice croquettes, especially because my mom and I were just talking about croquettes and how you never see them on menus anymore!

Lemon Glazed Butter Cake...OMG AND DAMN. that is it! Make it and like it! And send me a slice.

Your fellow Lemon lover...

Pasta in Garlic Almond Sauce. I love the sound of the almond sauce. Yummy. Too many good pick here.

Got one Facebook vote for Strawberry tart. YOu guys are all over the map today!

Okay, I vote for the meatloaf. Simply b/c meatloaf is meatloaf, you know? I'd love to see a different spin on it.

The lemon thingy - save the tart for strawberry season!

Meatloaf, definitely meatloaf...

So far, the meatloaf and the lemon cake are winning...

Lemon cake!!! please.

Jess broke the tie! The lemon cake wins. Although, I'm thinking about cheating this month. That meatloaf sounds too good to resist, and the pasta with garlic almond sauce is calling to me. Think they'd all be good together?
