Grilled Salmon with Bacon and Corn Relish
Absolutely fabulous. To save the fat, I didn't cook the vegetables in the bacon grease. I oven baked my bacon, patted it dry with paper towels and then diced/crumbled it. I then put the bacon in a saute pan with the veggies and a TINY bit of olive oil. I added the cayenne pepper to taste and I bet I ended up with more like 1/4 tsp. of cayenne (and it was not too spicy). Corn is not yet in season, so I used one can of shoepeg white corn (niblets) and the ratio to the rest of the relish was perfect. We grilled a 2-1/2 pound filet of salmon and this was just enough relish for that size. For a larger piece of salmon, I would have to double the relish. Everyone loved it!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints
I LOVE these cookies and have been making them for years at Christmas. I have a convection oven and cook three trays at once and they always turn out perfectly. I use insulated cookie sheets and adjust my oven according to the manufacturer's directions (for mine, I turn the oven down 25 degrees). Also, I drizzle the top of my cookies with melted white chocolate instead of the confectioner's sugar glaze. Pure heaven!

Pumpkin Yeast Bread
Love this bread! Only changes I make (for our family's tastes) are that I change the margarine to butter (to save the trans fat), I increase the cinnamon by 1/4 tsp. and add 1/8 tsp. cloves. I also use two cups of white bread flour and one cup of wheat flour. Has a great mild flavor and nice texture. I make the dough in the bread machine and then braid the dough (like challah) and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 25 minutes. Brush with melted butter (just a little!) when it comes out of the oven. YUM! My six-year-old especially loves this bread.
