Brown Sugar Whiskey Bacon Jam

Make the dads in your life happy with this sweet and savory bacon jam that can go on just about everything from an amazing burger to pizza topping, on a peanut butter sandwich, or just on a spoon.

Everyday Parmesan Risotto

Will Tom Colicchio keep you on Top Chef with this recipe? Honestly probably not, but will your family think you worked really hard on dinner? Yes, yes they will and those are the only judges that matter.

Thanksgiving Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Easy and delicious way to use all those Thanksgiving leftovers, and if you’re not ready for anymore turkey after the day this freezes well.

Braised Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts slow-braised in bacon and shallot pot liquor, topped with a quick fry shallot.

Curried Cauliflower

Deep flavors of curry with perfectly roasted cauliflower and the freshness of cilantro is a perfect side dish for an easy weeknight meal.

Swedish Meatballs

Savory Swedish meatballs with a cream sauce served on sour cream dill mashed potatoes. Serve with lingonberry jam and if you’re feeling it also has a side of cornichons. We Nords love our pickles!

World’s Best Meatballs

I’ve tried everything soaking the breadcrumbs in milk, just egg yolks instead of whole eggs, I tried every meatball secret I could find. Until I fell I finally found the right ratio of beef to pork to breadcrumb to parmesan the minute it hit the libs I get like Remy in Ratatouille when he mixes the grape and cheese.

Balsamic Chicken

This an easy but impressive dinner that can also be a quick weeknight meal. I used dark meat so it doesn’t dry out, I added caramelized onions to add a bit of sweet and to add a bit of texture to the sauce, I finished it with butter to make the sauce velvety

Cheater Ramen

Whether you’re trying to stretch a dollar, don’t know how to cook, or too lazy to go to the store so you stare blankly into the pantry and fridge wondering what to make so that you’re ungrateful teenagers stop bugging you for food for one damn minute so you can enjoy a drink and a complete thought for the first time that day. But then that thought is “why can’t my 13 just try looking for his shoe before asking me where it is” or “what is that smell? Oh god it’s my kid”. On days like these minimum effort on dinner is best, and this is the best sort of those dinners.
