 Despite all the other dishes competing for attention at Sunday brunch, the one I most remember was a delicious pea salad with big chunks of cheese, slivers of red onion, and a light, creamy dressing. I don’t even want to think about how many metric tons of the stuff I must have consumed through the [...]

When it comes to cooking during the week, there are nights when we really don’t want to do anything, when really all we can muster is picking up the phone to dial take-out, and I don’t like eating things that I have not prepared myself.  We came up with this filling recipe that only takes [...]

I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago. I used sliced pork roast instead of beef sirloin, we don’t eat a lot of beef. I think the next time I will use beef, it was not as flavorful as I think the beef would make it. I also did not use as much liquid [...]

I recommend using a strong dense wheat bread for this sandwich. It will hold up easier under the weight of the mushrooms and onions. I have also used muenster cheese along with the fontana and gruyere cheese. I also like to slow cook the mushrooms and onions in a beef stock until the stock has [...]

This recipe is easy and tasty. I love to start this mid morning and its ready by dinnertime. I will serve this with coleslaw and buns sometimes. Or I can dress it up and serve with mashed cauliflower, and a steamed veggie. It’s a versatile meat recipe.

To make this recipe a little healthier, I switched out the heavy cream and milk for just half and half. I also added Herbalife chicken soup mix to the recipe for added protein and either cooked and cut up chicken breast or roasted pork tenderloin. Which either one makes the recipe heartier and bumps up [...]
