Homemade ravioli is one of those home cooked meals you just have to make at some point. It doesn’t take a lot of work, it’s a ton of fun, and you can use all sorts of fillings! I’m using pancetta and asparagus in a brown butter sage sauce.
A cassoulet is a classic slow cooked dish originating from the south of France which typically has pork or duck and white beans. I picked up some sage pork sausage from L. Halteman’s at Reading Terminal Market to make this Sausage Cassoulet with Broccoli Rabe.
Homemade Grass Fed Raw Milk Mozzarella certainly is a mouthful. A mouthful of delicious accomplishment! I’ve always wanted to make cheese at home so I thought I’d give it a shot with some raw milk I picked up at the Fair Food Farmstand in Reading Terminal Market.
What’s the secret to the richest, creamiest, silky smoothest Mac & Cheese? I’ve tried The Food Lab’s Ultra-Gooey Stovetop Mac and Cheese Recipe by Kenji López-Alt and it’s quite good. But, there’s kind of a lot of steps and ingredients and I’ve heard of this secret ingredient which is supposed to […]
This beef stew with Guinness recipe focuses on developing flavor by using different cooking techniques. The beef is first broiled, the onions are fried in olive oil and butter, and the potatoes are pre-cooked in salty water.
This recipe for chicken thighs braised in tomatoes with white beans, served over homemade pappardelle is one of my all time favorites. There’s something about the chicken fat melting in to the acidic tomatoes that melds in to one of the most under-appreciated sauces ever.
Once you’ve made these chicken nuggets at home, you’ll never get them at a fast food joint again. These really are so easy that you might find yourself making them two or three time a week.
Tacos! What can’t you do with the blank slate that is the corn tortilla? And who the heck doesn’t love a taco?! I’ve lightly fried up some fish tacos for lunch today and, not only do they look pretty, they taste light and healthy. I’ve left out heavy, overwhelming ingredients like […]
Whether you’ve got people over for The Final Four, The Super Bowl The Big Game, or just some Chutes and Ladders, this healthy Turkey Taco Salad comes together quick enough to feed a hungry group.
Back in the eighties, it seemed like the pita sandwich was everywhere. I remember going to the tavern with my mom and they would serve their hamburgers on pita bread. That burger was awesome, I think, because it was so peculiar to be served on something other than a hamburger […]
You wouldn’t think it’s possible but this bread is depressing. Although it took almost a full 24 hours to get here, this is the best bread I’ve ever made and one of the best I’ve had in my life. So, whatever circumstances that led to its creation, I know it’s unlikely […]
A good Sunday morning starts with a bacon egg and cheese sandwich and a fresh cup of fair trade coffee. A better Sunday morning starts with fresh made brioche bread and a sunny playlist. I’ve been flipping through this Fannie Farmer cookbook for inspiration recently and have already started on two different […]
A completely from scratch chicken soup doesn’t take too much effort. This is a light broth so the stock is simple. The noodles were even made from flour and egg but that’s one of the easier parts of this recipe.
This recipe takes some time but the reward of a perfectly juicy, flavorful chicken breast is worth it. I won’t keep you waiting… Brine it, Dry it, Baste it.
