Impressive, elegant, and infinitely easy...Raspberry Charlotte.
Two super favorites from the Gourmet archives and an eaaaaaasy-peasy way to a restaurant worthy meal! Life's short so I put dessert first with Raspberry Charlotte. I've made this twice now and it has impressed both times. Granted, your Uncle would probably bump up the Brandy but with a few simple ingredients you'll create a memorable mouthful. But you gotta get something a little hearty in there, right? But it's summertime so you don't want heavy... then it's Fettuccine with Sausage & Kale (I recommend using the Turkey Italian Sausage over the pork.). Six ingredients with sublime results. Tonight or tomorrow or whenever...when you taste these you'll know you earned it!
