Corn dogs are one of those great polarizing foods: Peeps either love ‘em or hate ‘em. Me? Call me a savage, but I need once like once or twice a year, usually in the thick of summer, right around Labor Day. They remind me of steamy August afternoons spent at town carnivals. Corn dogs. Cotton […]
OK, I’ve had a zillion requests for this, mainly from my Homemade Deli-Style Roast Beef recipe. That’s this thing here (if you like roast beef, I highly recommend it, both for flavor AND cost cutting measures): Sorry it took me so long to noodle out a version for a turkey breast! This turkey breast is […]
There’s just something about a pig in a blanket. Maybe it’s because they make us feel like we’re 8-years-old again. Maybe they remind us of the BEST SUMMER EVER when we were teenagers. Regardless. I’ve seen these little babies totally delight some of my hard-core foodie friends. I’m talking about my gourmet-est, food snobbiest […]
Grab a fork and put on your fat pants. This is one of my favorite, super indulgent, weeknight chicken dishes. I’m the first one to admit that this will never be called health food. It’s chicken fried in bacon fat, candied in maple syrup, then doused with whiskey. And it’s absolutely delicious. Just don’t eat […]
Need a little inspiration for the holidays and New Year’s Eve this year? Check out some of my favorite, succulent holiday meals from past years. (Apologies in advance to my vegetarian friends for only including one thing for you guys. We’re a very carnivorous household.) 1. Restaurant-Style Prime Rib 2. Garlic-Studded Sirloin Roast […]
Pssssst, hey you! Your goose is cooked! Mwahahahahahaha. Wait. Make that geese. I’ve been waiting for weeks to be able to say that. (It’s the little things. Such a dork, I know.) This is my first experience cooking goose. I’m super excited about how they came out. Let me tell you all about it and […]
This pizza is easy enough to pull off on a weeknight. It’s my 2nd entry in Breakstone’s Battle of the Kitchen Bloggers, hosted by Sandra Lee. (Vote & you could win $2,500!)
OK, so that’s sort of a trick title. “How to Reheat King Crab” would be more accurate. In the U.S., almost all the King Crab you’ll find in stores is already cooked. (It’s caught, cooked, then blast frozen to preserve its fresh taste.) This one is more method than actual recipe. The goal is to […]
Prime Rib: It’s not just for Christmas dinner. I’ll make this whenever I can get my paws on one at a good price (or the rare super sale). It’s a great excuse to have a party. In fact, if you’re sick of ham on Easter, consider giving Roast Beast it’s day in the (springtime) sun. This is a restaurant technique that’s practically guaranteed to produce a moist, juicy, evenly cooked roast beast. And it couldn’t be simpler.
I’m pretty sure I’d be tempted to eat almost anything if you wrapped it in bacon or prosciutto. This is my take on the classic appetizer, bacon wrapped scallops. This recipe swaps in prosciutto, bacon’s paper thin, salty cousin, which practically guarantees that your scallops will always come out of the oven wearing a crisp little coat.
