  • braised short ribs in red wine sauce
    This is such a delicious and easy way to prepare braised short ribs. The pressure cooker does most of the heavy lifting. You just need to brown the meat, soften the veggies, toss in some flour, then add everything else. The frozen pearl onions help reduce prep time. We dug this out of a vintage Jacques Pepin book, The Short-Cut Cook. short ribsrendered fatfrozen pearl onionscarrotsgarlicflourherbes de Provencesaltblack pepperred bliss potatoesred wineparsley
  • chicken caesar salad recipe from the anthonys
    When our family travelled to Washington DC in 2010 to visit the Anthonys, their long-time family friends, they came home with this amazing chicken caesar salad recipe. We'll often make this after a trip to Costco. We'll shred the breast from the rotisserie chicken, make the croutons from their roasted garlic bread, and cut up romaine lettuce from there. This is a versatile and tasty dish that can be portioned as an appetizer or as a meal. We are always excited when this dish is on the menu for the day. chicken breastsolive oilgarlic breadgarlicsaltlemon juiceWorcestershire saucelight mayonnaisesalt and pepperanchovy pasteextra light olive oilromaineparmesan cheese

  • fast pork and tomatillo stew
    This is a really tasty, hearty, yet healthy way to enjoy pork tenderloin. In the first step, the pork browns beautifully. Once combined with the vegetables and beans, this one-pot meal quickly comes together. It is easy enough to pull off on a weeknight, but good enough for a comforting Sunday supper. I found this as a newspaper clipping amongst my mother-in-law's recipes. porkolive oilwatertomatillosjalapenooniongarliclime juicecilantrosaltblack beanscilantro sprigstortillascooked rice
  • jacques pepin's consommé recipe
    Broth is one of the most fulfilling things you can make in the kitchen. Consommé is the funnest magic trick you can do with your broth. Here’s how I got there. Sick in bed one day in May with the worst allergy attack of my life, I watched the DVD that came with the Jacques Pepin (JP) book Essential Pepin. In a KQED radio interview, JP said that the DVD was more valuable than the book, so I think to myself, "word, I better check this out!" In addition to lots of timeless techniques that he integrates into his show, the DVD also contained a segment where JP turned cloudy soup stock into crystal clear broth called consommé. I was so amazed that I made consommé as soon as I was feeling better.
