Luxe Recipes You Won't Regret Making

By Kristin Donnelly Posted July 08, 2008

The grim economic reports may have you holding onto your pennies, but yesterday, Wall Street Journal columnist Robert Frank wrote about a Harvard Business Review article that says we all might be a little happier splurging, even in the long run. The authors wrote, “Our research shows that forgoing indulgences today can feed strong regrets later, and that near-term regrets about self-indulgence dramatically fade with time.” To test out the theory, treat yourself to a few summery luxe ingredients and try one of these fantastic recipes:

Lobster Sliders

King Crab and Avocado Shooters

Corn and Chanterelle Crostini

Tex-Mex Porterhouse Steaks

Mixed Berry Hand Pies with Raspberry and Mascarpone Whipped Cream
(for an extra splurge, add the rarer and often pricier black raspberries).
