  • 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

  • mother-in-law's veggie dip
    We just love this dip. It reminds us of visiting our family during the holidays, and it gets us to eat lots of vegetables. Whenever we, in turn, make it for guests, they always ask what's in it. We'll typically serve it with cucumber as an anchor, and then mix in whatever fresh vegetables are in season. The amounts below are estimates, so feel free to adjust all ingredients to taste. chivesdillmayonnaisesour creambeau monde seasoningcucumber
