Cannellini Beans with Lemon, Roasted Red Peppers, and Bacon

Share

What a delicious side dish!   A big bowl of these beans could have been my whole dinner the other night, they were that good and that satisfying. They’re also full of flavor.  It didn’t hurt that the dish is full of bacon.  Isn’t everything better with bacon?

I used canned cannellini beans because they’re so […]

Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin with Peanut Sauce

Share

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 […]

Grilled Pork Chops with Garlic Lime Sauce

Share

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 […]

Five-Treasure Fried Rice

Share

Recipes from the Fine Cooking magazine or website never let me down. One recipe is better than the next. My niece made this last week and suggested that I try it. A couple of friends came by for dinner last week so I made these risotto cakes and this five-treasure […]

Pork Chops with Peach-Ginger Chutney

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 […]

Chicken, Ham and Swiss Roulades

Share

What a quick, easy dinner these roulades were.   And they were tasty too.    We eat a lot of chicken, so they were a nice change from breaded chicken cutlets.    If you use thin chicken breasts, they’re pretty easy to roll up.   The thicker the cutlet, the tougher time you’ll have rolling them and getting them […]

Asian Pork Tenderloin

Share

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 […]

All American Chili

Share

I’ve made this a couple of times now and it’s my favorite chili recipe, and I’ve tried lots of them. I’ve made Texas chili, turkey chili, white chili, and my mom’s chili and this is my hands-down favorite. I made a double batch last weekend for the Jets-Indianapolis playoff game. We […]

Go Green Giant Calzone

Share

I tore this recipe out of a magazine last month because it looked so easy and so good.  I made it recently when a couple of friends stopped by for dinner.   I threw this together as a quick weeknight meal and it was really delicious.   How can you go wrong with sausage, spinach and cheese?  […]
