Roquefort Pear Salad
I reviewed this recipe 3 years ago and it is still one of the best salad recipes out there. It always gets requests and compliments. I like to add a bit more sugar to my dressing however and find that blue cheese works just as well. Around the holidays, I like to add dried cranberries for color. This is a keeper.

Solianka or Russian Beef Soup
I like this soup, but find the salt content a bit much due to all the pickled ingredients.

Butter Cake
This recipe is a classic and if made properly, it should not come out like cornbread. I did add an extra egg yolk and 1/2 tsp. of almond extract to the vanilla (for a little more flavor). If your cake is coming out dry and like "cornbread", you are likely not using cake flour and you are not softening the butter and whipping it with the sugar until very fluffy. Be sure and use large sized eggs also. If your palate is only used to box cake mixes, this recipe will seem heavy and dense, but it shouldn't come out like cornbread if executed properly. One other tip, be sure your eggs are at room temperature and your butter is very soft - basics for good baking. Good luck and don't dismiss this recipe.
