Beef Stew in Red Wine Sauce - For this beef stew, Jacques uses a special piece of the shoulder called the flatiron steak. This long, narrow piece is extremely lean, tender and moist, and it makes an ideal stew. He does not use stock, demiglace or even water. He makes his stew strictly with a robust red wine. This rich, winey beef stew is always a hit with his chef friends.
Quick Summer Fruit Salad - 1 pkg vanilla instant pudding, 1 can pineapple, 1 lb. strawberries, 1 cup blueberries, 3 bananas, sliced. In a bowl combine the pudding mix and canned pineapple with the juice. Stir until well blended and all the pudding mixture has dissolved. Fold in the rest. (I use SF FF pudding and make sure I dip the bananas and apples, I love the crunch, in Diet 7-UP to keep them from getting brown). Yummy on yogurt.
