Elegant-looking enough for gift-giving, almond-cherry chocolate bark takes almost as much time to make as to read this post.

As I write this post, it's a balmy 35F degrees outside, with a windchill of about 0 kelvin. Well, crank up the heat, Dear Reader 'cos it's time to cool down with a smoothie!

Continuing my story from the other day about a lovely dinner theHubby and I shared with friends at a local Italian restaurant. One of the friends had a pasta dish containing shrimp (a kosher no-no, but what's a little traif among friends?). The stuff underneath the shrimp, though, looked so delicious that I attempted to create a reasonable clone-like veggie version.

Had dinner with friends at an Italian restaurant last week. I had a salmon dish that almost exploded my brain over the bright layers of flavors. Drizzled on and around the bottom was a basil pesto vinaigrette, topped with lightly sauteed baby spinach and covered with a diced sweet potatoes and tomato mixture. On top of all that were grilled red peppers, feta cheese, salmon, more potato/tomato mixture, grilled asparagus and finally topped with a balsamic reduction drizzle. A true delight in every bite. It was just too good not to share. So as soon as I could, I managed to to recreate this dish at home just to share. You're welcome.
