What Were They Thinking?

I subscribed to Bon Appetit for another year. As an enticement, they promised to send me a cook book. A 30-page flyer with eensy-weensy type arrived with almost more title than substance. "Fresh and Easy Dinners in 30 Minutes or Less." Slide your tongue down the table of contents with me and if anything sounds appealing, go to bonappetit.com and print it out. Below are dishes that didn't exactly set my hair on fire...

Crab Hush Puppies with Curried Honey-Mustard Sauce
Radish-Chive Tea Sandwiches with Sesame and Ginger

Egg/Breakfast Dishes
Matzo Brei with Tomatoes and Salsa
Buttermilk Waffles with Cherry-Almond Sauce

Pork Chops and Sugar Snap Peas with Mint Juilep Glaze
Lamb Chops with Dried Cherries and Port
Grilled Shrimp Satay with Peaches and Bok Choy
Buttery Steamed Mussels with Sake and Chiles

Vegetarian Black Bean Chili with Orange and Cumin
Crispy Black Bean Tacos with Feta and Cabbage Slaw
Mango-Radicchio Caprese with Basil Vinaigrette
Orzo, Green Bean and Fennel Salad with Dill Pesto
