recipe

Garlic bread, Spanish-style: Rub baguette slices with garlic cloves, brush with extra-virgin olive oil, and grill to a crisp, then rub with cut plum tomatoes -- that's the traditional version of these Catalan toasts. Here, they're given the special-occasion treatment with oven-dried tomatoes, fresh herbs, and other toppings, all inspired by the flavors of the region.This recipe originally appeared in Martha Stewart's Appetizers (Clarkson Potter).

recipe

An authentic Louisiana gumbo almost always begins with a flour-and-fat roux to thicken the stew while adding an earth-and-smoke undercurrent. Browning the flour dry, scattered and stirred in a pan, achieves virtually the same effect -- without all the calories.Just one link of andouille sausage gives the dish heaps of flavor, and okra slices bring on a velvety texture.
