A whole chicken cut into pieces and baked with a simple mixture of olive oil, chicken stock, garlic, spices and cheese - topped with balsamic vinegar just before serving. The best Chicken Savoy on the planet is served at the Belmont Tavern in Bloomfield, where it was invented by Stretch himself. Go there, order Savoy for two, and order Zita with pot cheese. They make a wonderful combination. The place is not fancy, but the food is outstanding. This is a recipe to eat with your fingers and get juices on your hands. Yum!
Bettie's Lasagna Roll Ups
This is a good freeze and eat later meal. It uses tofu, but you'd never know it! My cooking co-op loved this recipe! You can individually freeze the roll ups on a cookie sheet and place in a freezer bag.

Chef John's Beef Goulash
This Hungarian-style goulash is a thick beef stew that is great served over buttered noodles and garnished with sour cream.
Slow Cooker Spanish Beef Stew
I have never heard a complaint of my beef stew, it's a great new take on an old favorite! I prefer to serve stew over white rice, it all depends on your taste. You can season the beef with a packet of Sazon instead of salt and pepper, for even more Spanish style.
Fresh Salmon Burgers with Lemon-Yogurt Sauce
These are a little like crab cakes, but they're made with fresh salmon and grilled. The secret to juicy (not pasty!) salmon burgers is to chop the salmon coarsely with a knife.
Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction
This recipe for lamb chops is a favorite in my house. It is an easy and quick recipe for two people (we eat two chops each). Rosemary and thyme give it great flavor. If you double the recipe, remember that the sauce will take longer to reduce.
Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze
Balsamic glaze coats filet mignon medallions in this elegant dinner for two.
