...oil on top of the potatoes and they’ll be good to go.   
 
  After they’re stuffed with butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano, you want to bake them at 400ºF for about 45 minutes to an hour. I found mine were done more at the hour mark.     
 
  When they’re done baking, you’re still a few minutes away from cheesy gloriousness! First you have drizzle the heavy cream atop the potatoes …  
 
  And then add the shredded cheddar and bake for an addition 10-15 minutes.   
 
  They’ll come out looking all cheesy and inviting. Like this.  
 
  Transfer them to your plate. Of course, you can serve them just like this. They’ll be amazing.   
 
  But isn’t everything better with a dollop of sour cream? Yes, yes I think so.  This recipe is a total winner. It’d be perfect as a main dish accompanied with a salad, or as a side dish to, say, a roast chicken? The cheese and cream make this meal cozy and comforting, which is perfect for those chilly, brisk autumn evenings....

When they are done, take an immersion blender and puree about half the soup pot.

Andy's Recipe

...Case Study 3.3 – Andy‟s Recipe Andy Garafallo owns an Italian restaurant that sits in the middle of a cornfield near a large midwestern city. On the restaurant's far wall is an elaborate mural of the canals of Venice. A gondola hangs on the opposite wall, up by the ceiling. Along another wall is a row of real potted lemon trees. "My ancestors are from Sicily," says Andy. "In fact, I can remember seeing my grandfather take a bite out of a lemon, just like the ones hanging on those trees." Andy is very confident about his approach to this restaurant, and he should be, because the restaurant is celebrating its 25th anniversary. "I'm darned sure of what I want to do. I'm not trying different fads to get people to come here. People come here because they know they will get great food. They also want to support someone with whom they can connect. This is my approach. Nothing more, nothing less." While other restaurants have folded, Andy seems to have found a recipe for success. Since opening his restaurant, Andy has had a number of managers. Currently, he has three: Kelly, Danielle, and Patrick. Kelly is a kitchen (food prep) manager who is known as very honest and dependable. She loves her work, and she is efficient, good with ordering, and good with preparation. Andy really likes Kelly but is frustrated with her because she has such difficulty getting along with the salespeople, delivery people, and wait staff. Danielle, who works out front in the restaurant, has been with Andy......

My Favorite Recipe

...process analysis How to prepare my favorite dish I have always been someone who enjoys good food, but very particular about what I eat. So for that reason only I have become somewhat of a chef. I love to entertain and have family and friends over to test new recipes. One recipe I debut have become a family favorite and have to bring it to every family gathering. I received this recipe from one of my coworkers when I was looking for something different to do with cabbage, which I love. She told me that her family loves this recipe and its super simple to prepare. It’s called Runza, similar to a calzone, without the red sauce. To get started you will want to make sure you have all your ingredients close to you. This is what you will need. When I make this recipe I rarely measure anything out. It’s all to taste. I’ll start with the most important ingredients first, One head of cabbage, one pound of ground turkey or ground beef ( which ever you prefer), one green and red bell pepper, mozzarella cheese, one large onion, garlic cloves. You will use one teaspoon of each of these spices: salt, pepper, red pepper, red curry, Italian seasoning and chili powder to give it a little kick. I usually would make my own bread recipe but for time saving measures I just use an already made pie crust. I would get two just in case you will need to double wrap. Lastly you will need, as Rachel Ray would say, one turn in the pan of olive oil to cook your vegetables. Let’s get cooking.......

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes Yield: 4 Servings Ingredients: * 10 large garlic cloves * 24 oz (750 ml) chicken stock * 4 Tbsp olive oil * 8 boneless chicken pieces (approx 3 lbs) * 1 whole lemon * 2 heaping Tbsp flour * 8 oz (250 ml) white wine * salt and pepper to taste * 1 sprig flat leaf parsley or basil for optional garnish Preparation: Note: Use chicken with skin on or skinless pieces.
