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… Continue reading Red Wine Braised Short Rib Pot Pie

Southern Deviled Egg Potato Salad

This recipe combines two of my favorite foods - deviled eggs and potato salad! I brought this to my horseback riding club's monthly potluck last night, and there was hardly any left. The dressing is creamy and tangy, and the ingredients provide a nice contrast of textures. The dressing uses mayo, but I'd also really… Continue reading Southern Deviled Egg Potato Salad

Fish & Shrimp Chowder

I made this for dinner last night, and it was so good, but I pulled some out of the fridge today to take a photo and decided it's even better the second day.

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… Continue reading Turkey & Dumpling Soup

Gnocchi Bolognese With Braised Short Rib

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… Continue reading Gnocchi Bolognese With Braised Short Rib

Sausage & Apple Stuffing

I didn't host Thanksgiving this year, which is one of my favorite things. This was the first year in a really long time I haven't hosted, but I'm glad I was still able to make some contributions to dinner. (Thanks Annie & Dave for having me - I had a great time!) I brought stuffing… Continue reading Sausage & Apple Stuffing
