I often lament (or maybe it's more like complain) that because I host a food blog I am so busy testing new recipes, I rarely take time anymore to prepare many foods that I love and are truly wonderful. Last night I made this Roasted Potato, Arugula, and Goat Cheese Salad that I haven't made for a very long time and was reminded why it was one of the earliest recipes I posted on Passions to Pastry many years ago. It's delicious!
We ate this salad on its own, along with a loaf of rosemary bread for dinner. But it would be a great accompaniment to a grilled steak -- or grilled chicken, or grilled pork for that matter!
For dessert I also returned to a previously-posted favorite -- Mini Chocolate Beet Cakes (recipe HERE) and again asked myself why I don't make these little cakes more often. ( I had two last night [!] and one for breakfast this morning. Hey... they're small! ). The cakes are also a great way to use up some of the many beets growing in my vegetable garden.
