Hot, hearty, comforting and utterly delicious! Beef Stew for a Crowd is best when made in advance, which is perfect for […]
One of my favorite ways to ensure tenderness when it comes to cooking a protein (almost any type), is to first give the meat a little splash of balsamic vinegar, and then let it sit for about 20 minutes before cooking.
That’s my trick, and it’s one that lends a tenderness (and slight sweetness) to this recipe for Christmas Pork Roast with Cranberry Relish Glaze.
This recipe for Garlic Lovers Pork Chops was completely inspired by a trip I’d taken to our local warehouse superstore (aka Costco).
During that trip, and on a whim that I picked up one of those mega-sized bags of whole, peeled garlic cloves and tossed it into my cart. While I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with so many peeled garlic cloves (there must have been at least 500 or more cloves of garlic in that bag), my mind was excitedly thinking of all the delicious possibilities!
Boneless French Onion Pork Chops are my go-to meal when I’m craving a highly flavorful meal but without all the carbs.
This recipe is one of the most popular on my site, and after you make them, you’ll understand why!
Imagine if you will, deeply caramelized onions (cooked in a slow cooker) with red wine, butter, beef broth and thyme until they’re sweet and pungent. The onions are stuffed into large, perfectly cooked pasta shells until they’re practically overflowing. The stuffed shells are then layered on top of toasted, garlicky French bread, topped with an abundant mixture of grated Swiss, and Gruyere cheeses, and popped into the oven, so the cheese melts into a blanket of golden, gooey, goodness…Be still my French onion loving heart!
When it comes to Thanksgiving turkey, skip the brining, people! It’s messy, time consuming, and simply not necessary. This simple recipe for Better Than Brined Balsamic Basted Herbed Butter Turkey will beat the pants off of a brined turkey with absolutely no fuss, and no muss!
When it comes to French Onion soup, I can’t decide what my favorite part about the soup is. Whether it’s the deep rich broth, the abundance of sweet caramelized onions, the hearty slice of bread crouton that’s soaked in the broth and floats the perfectly browned and melted cheese.
Since I love every part of the soup, I’ve incorporated every part into my recipe of French Onion Chicken, including the bread crouton that sits atop the abundance of sweet caramelized onions, and acts as a platform for the moist and meaty chicken thigh and the melted cheese! Be still my heart!!!
Moist and meaty chicken thighs, along with red potatoes are cooked low and slow in a white wine caper sauce for this Italian […]

Since this Pork Pot Pie takes advantage of leftover pork (from the pork roast I made that could easily feed eight to ten people), it also did double duty in this pie that can also feed eight people. Maybe someday I’ll get the hang of cooking for only two…but don’t count on it. LOL
