Gourmet Pub Burgers
I made burgers similar to these in my college training, and tweaked them a little to satisfy picky eaters at home! Moist and juicy burgers guaranteed every time. Garnish the burger with a slice of pancetta, ancient grainy mustard, red onion slices, iceberg lettuce, and Swiss or blue cheese.
Cajun Seafood Pasta
This recipe is a hot one, but delicious! If you are weak of tongue, then divide the amounts of peppers in half. Better to add more than spoil your creation! Bay scallops are preferred, but the larger sea scallops can be used if they are cut in half. This dish can also be placed in a casserole dish and placed under the broiler until top turns golden brown!
Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce
Succulent herbed boneless pork loin chops paired with a tangy raspberry sauce ... heaven on a plate! This is a special family dish or perfect for company. I accompanied it with mashed potatoes and julienned steamed carrots. My husband can't wait to have it again.
Bourbon Pecan Chicken
Chicken breasts are coated in a pecan breading, and fried in a skillet. Then a rich bourbon sauce is poured over them before serving. This is a fabulous recipe that my Mother gave me from a upscale restaurant in New York. It is to die for. ENJOY!!
Crab-Stuffed Lobster Tail
Lobster tail with a New England-style cracker and crabmeat stuffing. Serve with fresh lemon wedges and homemade dinner rolls for an exquisite but surprisingly simple meal.
Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)
Chicken Makhani is one of my favorite Indian dishes. It is a full flavored dish that complements the chicken well. It can be made as mild or spicy as you wish by adjusting the cayenne. Serve with basmati rice and naan bread.
Gnocchi with Sage-Butter Sauce
A delicious sage, butter, garlic and cheese sauce makes a delicious side dish or complete meal!
Avocado Toast with Crumbled Crispy Pancetta
If you're expecting company for brunch, cook up this recipe for gourmet avocado toast with crumbled crispy pancetta and poached egg on rye.
Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice
Authentic Cajun flavor! I grew up in Louisiana and love red beans and rice; these are just like I remember. Serve with Tabasco sauce for a little kick. My family loved to splash a little cider vinegar in each bowl.
Roasted Rack of Lamb
I have had this recipe for a long time, and always enjoy making it. You can also do the same thing with beef or pork.
Chef John's Chicken Kiev
I'm not going to say this chicken Kiev is 'easy to make.' It's really not. So, why try? Because, if and when you pull this off, you'll be enjoying one of the greatest chicken experiences of your life. It's also one of the greatest garlic experiences of your life, as well as one of the greatest butter experiences of your life.
