My daughter introduced me to one of her fave recipes. It’s Creamy Chicken with Sun Dried Tomatoes. If you do a search, there are many variations on this dish (and the name, although sometimes you’ll see it called Tuscan Chicken); this one is straightforward and easy and only has a handful of ingredients – but it’s no less delish for all of that!
These days, flank steak, which back in the day used to be so inexpensive can be over the top pricey! But every once in awhile there’s a great sale. This year I picked one up during the Super Bowl Sales and I knew just what I wanted to do with that lovely! I wanted to make Stuffed Flank Steak with Wine Sauce. I thought it would be a beautiful way to showcase that steak and perfect for a special occasion, maybe Valentine’s Day?
So how about it guys, do you read magazines any longer? I get so much information online that they sometimes seem obsolete. And yet I manage to subscribe to a couple of food magazines because they are just so inexpensive. And they inspire me – when I manage to get them open and actually read them! That’s how I fell in love with the idea of this Moqueca Brazilian Seafood Stew – I saw it in Food & Wine Magazine.
Usually, I think of long, slow cooking like Braised Pork Roast with Sausage & Cabbage in the fall, but a pot of this glorious dish couldn’t be better on a cold, winter night or a drizzly spring day. This is like Sunday dinner extraordinaire! You might want to try to make this sometime this spring (I’m posting this is March) before it gets too warm for a hearty dinner.
When I was young and living in the Colorado Rockies, in the tiny little village of Georgetown, I had “Spiced” or Mulled Wine for the first time. I can’t think of any recipe that says “Holiday” more than warm spiced wine on a wintery day. It doesn’t matter if it’s a holiday with family and/or friends in the cabin or on a ski or snowmobile trip, or a home-based gathering like Thanksgiving or Christmas, Spiced Mulled Wine makes the party!
