I have a complicated relationship, strictly one-way, with the folks at Bon Appetit. I used to scoff at how easy they make their oh so difficult recipes sound. Yet those finished product photos kept me trying.

In June of 2012 the stunning cover photo of a Slow-Roasted Salmon filet catapulted me into the magazine to find the recipe. Whoa Nellie...there was a yogurt sauce and tomatoes and couscous that accompanied the fish. That was lot for someone like me. Instead I mastered the fish, saving the yogurt sauce and couscous for another time. Baby steps, people!
