Put yesterday's sole, cream, and lemon to good use again with a dish that's got a completely different point of view: sole florentine.
It achieves a browned, crispy exterior with the help of crushed Ritz crackers, which have a light crunch. Old Bay, the classic seafood seasoning, adds just the right amount of spice.

Whenever I chat with someone about the film Julie & Julia, it seems the famous recipe for beef Borgignonne enters the conversation. However, when I watched the movie it wasn't this dish that stood out in my mind. It was the sole meuniere — the life-changing fish that Julia enjoyed upon her arrival in France — that I long to taste. Since I have a copy of my grandmother's Mastering the Art of French Cooking, I went home and looked for Julia's recipe.
Unfortunately it's not in the book, so I hit the Internet in search of a buttery white-fish recipe. Although it's not necessarily a classic sole meuniere, I experimented with this sole and herbed white wine lemon sauce. The final result wasn't a culinary revelation, but it was decidedly delicious. If you're looking for a light, filling meal with fresh flavors, why not channel Child? For the recipe, keep reading.

I've come to learn that anything inappropriately visible is not pretty: VPLs, VBLs (Visible Bra Lines), and now VPTs (Visible Price Tags). When you have a gorgeous shoe, like this Report Signature Guada Suede T-Strap Pump ($195), you don't want a tacky price tag that's stuck on the inside sole to take away from its beauty.
