I used the Buttery Rolls  recipe to make some buns and came out like Ciabatta.  We loved it!

I made the dough according to the recipe then divided into 12 pieces.  I shaped each into a circle about 3 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick.  Place the rolls on a baking sheet and let rise for about 20 minutes. 
Bake at 350 for 20 -25 minutes, until golden brown.  Brush with margarine while still warm.

Slice in half by making a horizontal slice.

Seared Salmon with Tomato Relish

Seared Salmon with Tomato Relish

4  salmon fillets (I used the individual frozen ones that are about 4 oz each - thaw before cooking)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 small tomatoes, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1 tbsp butter or margarine
1 tsp dried cilantro

Once the salmon is thawed, heat the olive oil in the skillet to medium high.   Add salmon - salt and pepper as desired - and cook on each side for 4-5 minutes.  Remove and set aside, keep warm.

Melt butter in the same skillet and add the tomatoes, pepper and cilantro.  Cook and stir 1 minute.  Serve over the salmon.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

2 medium sweet potatoes
1 tbsp honey butter

Peel and dice the sweet potatoes.  Place in a large mixing bowl.  Melt honey butter in the microwave and pour over the potatoes.  Sprinkle on some cinnamon and nutmeg and stir to mix well and coat the potato pieces.
Arrange on a greased baking sheet.  Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes or until soft and slightly browned.
