Thank You Baked Rigatoni with Pork and Ricotta
Here’s a sumptuous baked pasta dish that will warm you to the bone. No red sauce – just lemon, rosemary, and ricotta in an al dente pasta redolent with the flavor of the most tender pork you’ve ever tasted. I love this meal! Add a green salad and a nice, light red wine and you have the makings of a feast!
Hash is one of those dishes that, when properly prepared, is the ultimate breakfast of champions. Too often it’s a greasy, gamey mess of leftovers that puts people off it forever. But this is not the hash you have may tried and found revolting.
Mango Pomegranate Guacamole with Honey and Smoke Mezcal Cocktail
Ah! It’s football season and one’s thoughts turn to … guacamole. What I like most about watching football is the food, and this is a super-charged guac recipe. As an added bonus, mezcal is big in the cocktail shaker universe these days, often offered as a tequila alternative.
Game Hens with Sage and Rosemary
It’s the time of year when we begin to get cozy at home, staying in to cook seasonal meals and enjoy old favorites. I’ve always liked game hen because they’re so tender, and they take on the flavor of other ingredients so easily. These luscious little hens are plump and bursting with rosemary, sage, three kinds of onions, and the zing of fresh oranges.
