Excellent for Christmas gifts, as persimmons are only available for a brief time. Moist spice cake type bread. This is the top seller at our company bake sale at Christmas!

Short Ribs Braised with Mushrooms and Tomatoes

Rating: Unrated

The short ribs are slowly braised with easy-to-find dried porcini mushrooms (for real, ask someone at the fancy grocery store and they'll find them for you!) until they turn into a triumph of fork-tender goodness. I love these short ribs over mashed potatoes, but the rich tomato and mushroom gravy is fantastic over soft polenta as well. I really hope you give this cool weather wonder a try.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don't know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!

Chuck roast is marinated overnight then braised in hearty red wine for hours to render a flavorful and succulent meat. This is a traditional dish from Northern Italy typically served on Sundays. Serve with creamy polenta or mashed potatoes. Don't forget to buy two bottles of the wine so you can enjoy one with the meal!

This is a dish my brother prepared for me in Seattle. It is by far the best salmon I've ever eaten. I like to serve it with an Asian-inspired rice and roasted asparagus.
