I'm cooking my way through Ina Garten's new Barefoot Contessa cookbook (Back to Basics). Friends were over for dinner and I made the Indonesian Grilled Swordfish, very good but make sure not to over cook the fish on the grill. I served it with some herbed basmati rice, salad and naan. Desert was creme brulee with raspberries for the adults and brownie pudding (from the same book) with vanilla icecream for the kids.

I have a subscription to Cook's Illustrated which I love reading cover to cover, but I don't actually cook very many of their recipes. The recent issue (Jan./Feb.) has an article on cooking hearty greens. Sam's Club happened to have a two pound bag of washed and cut collard greens so I bought them and tried the version with coconut milk and curry. I loved them, but the rest of the family wasn't as thrilled and thought they had quite a bite. Which they do, but like a good southern girl I love my greens.
