Grandma’s Goulash Pot Roast

Spaetzle with beef, carrots, and potatoes in a gravy-like sauce

I love my grandmother’s goulash recipe, which I’ve actually never posted. This pot roast is inspired by her goulash, as is this beef stew. I had a hard time naming this recipe. It’s definitely a pot roast, but has some goulash-like qualities in the way it’s finished. Goulash is more of a stew, but this

Red Wine Pot Roast

I was hosting a holiday party for my horseback riding club last weekend, and I needed a recipe that would be a crowd-pleaser but still relatively easy to make. Braising is one of my favorite cooking methods, so a pot roast was perfect. I was cooking for 20 or so people, so my go-to of

Red Wine Braised Short Rib Pot Pie

Red wine braised short rib pot pie

I was invited to a pie-themed party this weekend and wanted to make something unique. I was torn between a beef bourguignon pot pie and a short rib pot pie. I decided to go with the short rib pie because I knew I could do the short ribs well. I decided to incorporate some saffron

Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli slaw

I made this broccoli slaw to go on fish tacos, but it also makes a good side dish. It’s easy to make a lot, so it would be a good make and take side for a potluck. This recipe uses Greek yogurt, which I used to hate, until my boyfriend made a corn salad using

Turkey & Dumpling Soup

Thanksgiving leftovers! Last year, I made a turkey cranberry flatbread. In addition to the turkey and dumpling soup I made yesterday, I still might make one more thing for this year’s Thanksgiving leftover edition. This recipe is similar to my grandmother’s chicken & dumpling soup recipe. You wouldn’t really need to do anything except switch

Gnocchi Bolognese With Braised Short Rib

Gnocchi bolognese

I have a “book club” with a group of girlfriends that really isn’t a book club – we get together and eat good good and drink wine. Why is it called book club, then? Long story! Last week, we were at a restaurant that has some great short rib dishes. One of my friends ordered

Chicken Fried Rice Tacos

I ate at a restaurant last time I was in Charleston that had hibachi tacos on the menu. They were so good, so I decided I needed to try to make something similar at home. I’ll definitely be making these again! You could easily make this vegetarian by nixing the chicken and increasing the proportion
