porchetta ~

Quite possibly the easiest recipe that renders the most scrumptious pork shoulder... it does require some fore thought but is definitely worth the prep. It cooks itself to perfection in a low and slow method. I chunk the pieces off of the shoulder as opposed to slicing or pulling them. I season the shoulder the day before and leave it uncovered in the refrigerator overnight. This allows the outside of the meat to dry out rendering a crusty finished roast. ingredients 3 - 5 pound pork shoulder (the weight of the shoulder does not change the recipe, just the cooking time) [...]

roasted shrimp, tomato & feta ~

The richness of the tomato sauce blends so heavenly with the shrimp and feta in this recipe. I made my own tomato sauce in this recipe which takes about 25 mins to simmer but if you don't have the prep time any great jarred sauce will work just reduce it in the skillet about 5 minutes and add the honey to it. You want a sauce that is on the thicken side not watery or runny.  Simmering for that 5 minutes will thicken the sauce and the honey will caramelize the shrimp just slightly. I used a cast iron skillet because [...]

fried brown rice ~

Short grain brown rice is the star in this Fried Rice. Unlike most rice prep this recipe calls for boiling the rice like you do pasta.  I used my instant pot to cook the pork shoulder in the time it took to boil the rice. But you can use bbq ribs that you've removed the meet from.  What gives this rice it's flavor is the hoisin and sesame oil. The brown rice adds a nice chew to the dish. ingredients 2 c brown rice 1 T Porcini Mushroom Sous Salt 1 T hoisin sauce 2 eggs scrambled 1 t red pepper [...]

seafood chowder ~

This soup came together after a week away with the family. We needed something quick but as always ...it had to be flavorful as well.  I used Sea Bass, Shrimp and Spicy Sausage. You could use Salmon, Halibut or Cod in addition or as a substitute. There are so many different kinds of sausages being made today so experiment with some other varieties.  There is a chicken artichoke that would be tasty with cod and scallops. I used salsa because it already had the garlic, herbs and tomatoes as a base so it jump started our soup prep. I used our [...]
