I’ve always had a little crush on Beef Wellington. I mean, what’s not to love about a beef filet seared then covered with Pâté de Foie Gras (a pate made out of fatty duck liver….trust me it’s a delicacy), and/or Duxelles (finely chopped mushrooms sauteed with shallots and herbs) and wrapped in flaky puff pastry […]
Oh my goodness gravy (literally) but these filet mignon steaks are DELICIOUS. And you won’t even believe how easy they are to make. A quick sear on all sides and then pop them in the oven while you finish making the sauce in the pan and you can have an amazing Valentine’s Day recipe to wow […]

I am telling you, This is the best meatloaf I’ve ever made and you’ll soon see why. It’s the ultimate meatloaf, it’s a southwest meatloaf recipe full of goodness with smoked cheese, and a chipotle- red wine glaze. It’s the bomb! This is not a recipe for the semi-homemade type of cook. This is a labor […]
Okay, I admit it. I’m a sucker for anything with pie crust. So a traditional shepherd’s pie recipe with a crust of mashed potatoes seems sometimes, well….just sad to me. I have no idea how I started making this pie. I may have had something similar at a diner years ago and tried to replicate […]
We love a good chili recipe at our house on game days, especially for the Superbowl. I love to cook up a pot, put out the fixings, and leave it on the counter all day long in a crock pot to keep warm. If I make it ahead of time, I can relax, watch the […]
Sliders are such a great inspiration to play with. First off, you can have a small appetite and have just one or be ravenous and have 4. The recipes can vary from Buffalo Chicken to Portabello Mushroom or you can offer your guests or family a choice and do several, including this latest one I […]
These Kraut Bierocks are a fond memory of my childhood.
