In our home we call it "lupper". Sounds like a strange fish. Yours sounds like a different nationality.

From the photo in the link that dish looks absolutely stunning! If it tastes half as good as it looks it must be really special. However, when I looked at the ingredient list it filled the entire page of my notebook! I'm a "six ingredients or less" kinda girl most of the time.

Actually, it could be "linner". They all sound like exotic fish. Or a law firm: Lupper, Linner, and Dunch, Attourneys at Law.

Yeah.... I REALLY like Bon Appetit recipes in general, but they seem to always call for a bajillion ingredients - and they are never the easy ones. For this one, it seemed reasonable to sub what I did for the sake of time and money. I mean, really, do I NEED dried raisins AND cranberries? Probably not. Do I really NEED to do the technique where they partially cook it and then steam the entire dish? Probably not. If I had more time, perhaps.

Anyhoo, I thought it was good and my wife liked it - WINNER!

WE had a Norman Van Aken chicken wing recipe, along with a sweet potato fry recipe of his. We also deep fried some cubes of leftover mac and cheese. Very, very nicey and spicy!

Me too. Too many ingredients in a recipe is a deal breaker for me. If I got all those ingredients together my counter would be full and I would have no place to work.

I too am going to have the asparagus I've been shuffling around in the fridge.
And that's as far as I've gotten, too.

What gives? I have asparagus ready to go too! I bought it a week ago and finally got it cooked night before last. Taking some to work tomorrow.

I had Chicken Osaka for lunch, so I got to have Cheerios for supper and some sleepy time tea...
