Moqueca Brazilian Seafood Stew

Moqueca Brazilian Seafood Stew

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.

Braised Pork Roast with Sausage & Cabbage

Braised Pork Roast with Sausage & Cabbage

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, drizzly spring day. This is like Sunday dinner extraordinaire! You might want to try to make this sometime this spring before it gets too warm for a hearty dinner.

Spiced Mulled Wine

Spiced Mulled Wine

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!

Poor Man's Mock Prime Rib

Poor Man’s Mock Prime Rib

It’s been a long time since I’ve made a roast. I mean a real roast, in the oven. I did do a 30 Minute Instant Pot Roast, which was fun, but that was way back in January. So when I saw roast on sale this last week I decided it was about time to try another. Now Prime Rib isn’t in my budget, and truthfully, neither is a Standing Rib Roast but here’s my go-to method to take a cheap, grocery store roast and make it taste better, kind of a Poor Man’s Mock Prime Rib. This is a super easy recipe, but it’s a bit different and I’ve taken you through each step; don’t be worried about the length of the post!

Chicken Bordeaux from the New York Times Cookbook

Chicken Bordeaux from the New York Times Cookbook

I have really fond memories of this recipe, Chicken Bordeaux from the New York Times Cookbook. At least Chicken Bordeaux was in a New York Times Cookbook in the late ’70s, maybe early ’80s. In Craig Claiborne’s day, I think. He was a food writer and editor for the New York Times. This harks back to when I was young, and if the pictures are correct, wearing a bikini!
