I served this for dinner on Christmas Eve. I usually make something more grand, like a crown roast of pork, or beef wellington, but this year, my sister was coming with her two small children (aged 2 and 8 months), so I wanted something that would cook quickly because I start cooking when we get […]
We had lots of guests (primarily my family) over Labor Day weekend, and on Saturday night we had a huge crowd for dinner. Some of my sister’s friends were in Greenport, so they joined us. We were 12 children and 14 adults. I was looking for something that was nice enough for company, but easy […]
This has been one of my go-to barbeque recipes this summer. I can’t tell you how many times I made these pork chops. Each time I had the scale the recipe up because I was serving a crowd, but they’re perfect for a crowd because they cook so quickly and the sauce […]
My brother recently competed in the NYC Triathlon and the night before the race, I made him (and a number of his friends) a carbo-loaded dinner of spaghetti and meatballs. Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never in my life made meatballs other than Swedish meatballs. I don’t know […]
I’m on a peach kick because they’re in season here in the Northeast. We just had some friends visit from Atlanta, and they like pork chops, so I searched for an interesting pork chop recipe. My go-to pork chop recipe (wow, I need a better picture of it!), which I love involves […]
We had a small Cinco de Mayo dinner party the other night and I tried a bunch of new Mexican recipes. I always try new recipes out on guests. So far I’ve been pretty lucky that all of the recipes have been decent. I’m just waiting for the day that one of […]
Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite weeknight meals because it’s so quick and easy to cook. I used to buy a bottle of marinade, dump it into a ziploc bag with the pork tenderloin and let it sit in the refrigerator for a while – sometimes all day, sometimes for an hour. Since I’ve […]
This is a recipe that I grew up with. My mom cut the original recipe out of the Long Island Press in 1962. The Long Island Press was our daily newspaper until it went out of business in 1977. This recipe with my mother’s modifications was part of her regular dinner rotation and […]
This is an ideal recipe for a weeknight meal when you don’t have too much time to cook. It comes together in less than 15 minutes, and it’s incredibly tasty. Served with rice and a vegetable, it’s a fantastic meal.
Want to guess if the boys liked it? Yep – you got it – not one […]
I made these Swedish Meatballs tonight and they were so good I had to post the recipe. The photo doesn’t really do them justice, but I wanted to put the recipe up, so I decided to go with it.
In my post-college days before I began to do a lot of cooking, I used to eat […]
