It's good to be back in the kitchen! (Here, have a giant platter of meat!) The last two weeks have been a whirlwind! Between baking dozens of practice tarts for Bon Appetit's Holiday Bake-Off Party...

Sunday Pot Roast (a.k.a. Beast in a Pot)

Pot roast is stick-to-your-ribs, winter home cooking at its coziest. It's also an economical way to feed a crowd when you're on a budget. All you need is a big hunk of beef, an even bigger pot, a handful of ingredients, and a little patience.

This recipe is so easy, it's kind of like cheating. I'm OK with that, though. (I'm all for fancy sauces and complicated meals. But there's a definite time and a place for dishes like this.) It takes no time to slap together—then your oven does all the hard work.

Rustic Veal Flank with Whiskey Cream Broth

By now, you guys probably know about the great love affair I have with my butcher shop, McKinnon's. When I go, I partly have a shopping list in mind, and I partly decide what...

Smokey Black Pepper Beef Ribs

These ribs get a ton of deep, pepper-y flavor from freshly cracked black pepper—and a fair amount of heat from ground chipotle chili. They also get a double dose of smoke from a generous amount...

Porcini-Encrusted Filet Mignon

These days, we don't eat filet mignon that often. Filet is fabulous because it's really tender. But honestly? We usually prefer the beefy flavor of slightly sturdier cuts like sirloin. Filet is also usually pretty...
