Au Jus recipe from my friend Gordon McRae to accompany Prime Rib.

New Year's Day Bean Soup New Year's Day Bean Soup

 

Christine's mother Beaulah gave Sue this recipe ages ago and I've been making it on New Year's Day every year. It's a great soup, very flavorful and satisfying.

Prime Rib Prime Rib

 

My friend Gordon McRae perfected this cooking method, which works every time. You should use a constant-read thermometer, the type where the readout stays outside the oven, so you can watch the temperature rise. Keep in mind that your prime rib will cook in about two hours, REGARDLESS OF ITS WEIGHT.

Root Vegetable Gratin with Gruyere Root Vegetable Gratin with Gruyere

 

I made this for Christmas 2007 to use a new Emile Henry casserole I had given to Sue for Christmas. The recipe came right out of the Williams-Sonoma catalogue and worked perfectly with that casserole. It's really good.

This is one of our family favorites for any occasion when "special" potatoes are necessary. Great flavor.

Easy, simple, yet elegant way to serve a vegetable for a crowd. Sue's mother made this for Thanksgiving and Christmas frequently.

Great meat loaf from Williams-Sonoma, only slightly modified. A family favorite that's good for dinner and makes fabulous meat loaf sandwiches on the left over sourdough bread you'll have.

Hot California Sandwiches Hot California Sandwiches

 

My mother and Eleanor Lovett made these frequently. I loved them as a kid and I still do. You can make them on English muffins or sourdough bread.

Old Fashioned Chopped Salad Old Fashioned Chopped Salad

 

Very nice, refreshing salad from the original chef when the Occidental Grill in Washington, DC first opened. Hasn't been on their menu for years so I'm glad I got the recipe when I did.

Sweet Potato Pecan Pie Sweet Potato Pecan Pie

 

Wonderful variation on plain old pecan pie from Paul Prudhomme. Sue has been making it for Thanksgiving for years; Duane wouldn't have it any other way.

Peas with Rosemary and Pine Nuts Peas with Rosemary and Pine Nuts

 

Sue's friend Chris Van Hook gave us this recipe many years ago and it's one of those standbys that people ask for and that we like to keep making.

Brie with Roquefort and Herbs Brie with Roquefort and Herbs

 

Another recipe from Piret's, this is a good savory appetizer that works well for a crowd.
