Weeknight Veal Ragu

I love a good bolognese, but sometimes I just don’t have time on a weeknight to invest in making it. That’s where this kind of pasta sauce comes in. It cooks in the time it takes to boil a big pot of water, and it uses enough veal to flavor the sauce but not enough … Continue reading »

Seared Pork Tenderloin with Grapes

The key to succulent, juicy pork like you get at restaurants is not to overcook it. Most people do. They recently lowered the FDA accepted temperature for pork to 145 degrees, which means it stays juicy and slightly pink. This makes the meat so unctuous and tender, you won’t miss red meat. Invest in a … Continue reading »

Lamb Burgers

My burgers are always a big hit and I keep my dad’s secret guarded very closely. I’m not sure if I will post that recipe at some point, but for now, it’s a secret. Sorry! For now, you’ll have to try these delicious lamb burgers. I like lamb because it’s rather lean and flavorful with … Continue reading »

Linguine Bolognese

I’m not a big fan of going out for Valentine’s Day because restaurants typically overcharge and it feels a little forced. Plus, my favorite evenings are ones spent at home over a delicious meal– why do something different? I see Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to be reminded how good we have it every other … Continue reading »

Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder and Pork Tacos

I’ve been thinking about slow roasting a pork shoulder for a while now. I’ve always thought it was some big endeavor with an expensive piece of meat, but it turns out I was totally wrong. The meat was very inexpensive and it couldn’t have been easier. A dry rub on the outside, and you put … Continue reading »

Moroccan Lamb Soup

After more than a week of eating healthy, this soup tasted so great with just a little ground lamb. I’ve started craving carbs, but not meat– until I started smelling this meat cooking. Because it had been a while, the soup was even more satisfying. I don’t cook a lot with all these spices, so … Continue reading »

2011 was a great year in the kitchen

It was a great first year for my latest project, Meatballs and Milkshakes. I had a chance to make both namesakes for my blog, spaghetti and¬†meatballs and affogato¬†milkshakes. My recipe for shaved asparagus salad won on Food52 and I got all sorts of prizes. (And my recipe will be in print in October 2012!) I … Continue reading »

Bresaola, Parmesan, and Arugula Salad

  As most people are probably doing after the holidays, I was craving a salad to balance out all the heavy, rich food everywhere. This is one of my favorites, and it’s really not even a recipe. The bresaola is from one of my favorite places in NY, Di Palo. If you haven’t been there, … Continue reading »

The Ultimate Beef Stew

I don’t talk up my own food very often, but I have to say that this stew was really killer. You can call it beef stew or beef bourgignon or brasato al chianti, but it’s all very similar. The meat was just falling apart and tender with delicious carrots and flavorful gravy. I served it … Continue reading »

Veal Saltimbocca

Leading up to a big day of cooking, the last thing I want to do is tire myself out cooking other meals. Saltimbocca is one of the quickest things you can do for dinner because you start with really thin pieces of meat and you don’t do much to them. I make this with veal … Continue reading »
