Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and pour into a 9x13 inch pan and spread evenly across the bottom. Generously sprinkle parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle other seasonings all over the butter. Place potato halves face down on the butter and seasonings. Place in preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool for at least a FULL 5 minutes before removing from the pan, otherwise the parmesan crust won't stick to the potato. Serve on a plate with a side of sour cream for dipping.

6 tablespoons fig balsamic vinegar, divided
8 thin slices prosciutto (from two 3-ounce packages) cut into strips
1 sweet onion, carmelized
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
8 cups arugula
Preheat grill to 450°F. Sprinkle large rimless baking sheet generously with cornmeal. Roll out dough on floured work surface to 12x10-inch rectangle; transfer to prepared sheet. Sprinkle Gorgonzola over dough. Sprinkle with pepper. Place figs in medium bowl; drizzle 1 tablespoon vinegar over. Set aside.
Sliced onions thinly, and carmelized over medium heat stirring constantly.
In separate pan place remaining 5 T. Vinegar and cook until reduced by half and thickened into a glaze.
Bake pizza until crust is golden brown on bottom, 15 to 20 minutes. Immediately drape prosciutto slices over, covering pizza completely. Arrange fig slices atop prosciutto with onions. drizzle vinegar glaze over all. Bake until figs are just heated through, about 1 minute. Transfer pizza to cutting board. Whisk remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar and oil in large bowl; add arugula. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Mound salad atop pizza. Cut into pieces and serve.

(Original recipe found at Epicurious, but I've changed the recipe to make it my own) 😊 This pizza is also made at Antonio's Italian Deli and Market in Maitland. It is unbelievably delicious! Pair it with 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon.
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 large carrot, peeled and cut into fine dice
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg. chicken and apple sausage sliced
2 teaspoons dried tarragon
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon paprika
5 plum tomatoes, diced
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups lentils
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Pepper to taste
Fresh tarragon chopped for garnish
1. Preheat a large pot over medium heat and add oil. Saute' the onion and carrots for about 10 minutes, until onions have browned a bit. Add the garlic, tarragon, thyme, and paprika, and saute' for 2 more minutes. Add the tomatoes and sausage and a little splash of water if necessary, and stir to deglaze the pot. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
2. Add the chicken broth, lentils, bay leaves, salt and pepper, then cover and bring to a boil. Once the soup is boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, covered for about 45 minutes, or until the lentils are tender. If the soup looks too thin, uncover and simmer for a couple more minutes. If it looks too thick, add a little water. Serve with fresh tarragon on top and hot, crusty bread.
