A spicy chicken and pesto pasta dish that's easy to adjust to any heat level. I created it after eating a similar dish at a Santa Monica restaurant, and it's one of my favorites. Serve with additional grated Parmesan, if desired. As an option, it's delicious with creamy goat cheese stirred in at the end.
This three ingredient beef tenderloin dish will melt in your mouth. We've had it for both of our Christmas dinners this year (2 families) and got RAVE reviews from everyone. Hard to believe it's so easy to prepare!
Mini jam sandwiches coated in batter and deep fried until puffy and golden brown. You may use any jam you like, or try substituting butter and cinnamon sugar for variety. Either way, the ingredients are almost always on hand, and they reheat in the oven well, too. Couldn't be easier, and the kids will love them!
Tender whole scallops and shrimp get a quick saute in hot, garlicky olive oil and butter before taking a brief clam juice simmer. Toss with hot pasta, bright strips of sun dried tomatoes and tangy bits of lemon zest for a refreshing entree or appetizer.
There's a nice tangy bite to this hearty dark rye that still has a tender crumb, thanks to the wheat flour. Cocoa and coffee powders darken the loaf, and caraway and fennel seeds impart just a bit of licorice flavor. It can be made in your bread machine or with a stand mixer.
Wile away a rainy day by making this long-simmered sauce of ground beef, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, celery, bell peppers, Italian seasonings, basil and garlic. Serve over spaghetti and top with a grating of Parmesan.
