Parmesan & Garlic Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Crispy roasted brussels sprouts on a serving platter with serving fork

I recently asked my social media followers for some recipe requests. One of the requests was for more vegetable recipes. I make veggies a good bit, but I’m not so great at remembering to write down the recipes so I remember to blog them. I’ll try to get better at that! I was out to

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

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

Short Rib Ravioli

Short Rib Ravioli

There is a new local restaurant in an area that desperately needs some good restaurants. One of their specials the first night I went was short rib ravioli, and it was amazing. I knew I needed to try to replicate it at home. I took a major shortcut and used sauce from Wegmans because I
