Re:Classic Rice Pudding

Just like mom used to make it :)

Re:Molten Spiced Chocolate Cabernet Cakes

I love these things! So freaking easy to make. The cloves flavor is way too strong though. I just leave out the cloves entirely and it tastes much better in my opinion.

Re:Wild Mushroom Risotto

Love this recipe!! I've made it 5 or 6 times now and it's always fantastic. Gordon Ramsey makes risotto look so hard but this recipe makes it a lot less intimidating as long as you give it TLC and attention. I serve it with pork tenderloin, white wine, and a baguette. Always a hit with the friends and family.

Re:Classic Chicken Pot Pie

Made this for my boyfriend's parents but I think it was a little too decadent/rich. I loved the pearl onions and cremini though. In my opinion it's lacking something to make it the classic chicken pot pie. The search for the perfect pot pie continues!

Re:Summer Corn Chowder

I made this yesterday and it was exactly what I was craving! So warm and comforting! I think the chicken broth I used was a little salty even thought it said 33% reduced salt or some nonsense like that, so next time I will probably make my own broth. The base tasted amazing even before adding in the corn! I may use the base for chicken noodle soup next time.

Re:Red Peppers Stuffed with Feta, Orzo, Lemon & Oregano

Don't bother with stuffing the peppers. When I did, they came out rather flavorless and soggy. Instead I cut the peppers up and saute them in with the other veggies. It works as a hot or cold pasta salad type dish and It's always delicious. To make it more hearty, I sometimes add ground beef seasoned simply with salt and pepper. Tastes great!

Re:Roasted Lamb Loins with Mustard-Herb Crust

I also used lamb loin chops instead of roast because it was all that my store had available. This recipe turned out very delicious and the temperature on the meat was perfect medium rare after 18 minutes. The crust crumbled a little more than I expected so maybe next time I will use a bit less breadcrumbs and a bit more honey/dijon. I loved the flavor on the mixture of herbs and added a little bit of thyme as well.

Re:Smoky Chipotle Black Bean Chili with Fresh Salsa

This is the best chili I've ever had, much less made. I have made it several times and every time it has been absolutely amazing. My friends always love it. I don't even notice that it's vegetarian, which is the mark of a truly good vegetarian dish in my humble carnivorous opinion. I often don't have all the chili peppers, but substitutions can be made to taste and the flavor is always complex and fantastic. I like the goat cheese but my boyfriend prefers it with sour cream.

Re:Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

The braising liquid for this recipe is fantastic and very flavorful. I chose to braise on the stovetop instead of in the oven because I can monitor it more closely. If I make it again I will sear a bit more and use a slightly higher temperature to fully cook off the fat. I used flanken cut because that was all my butcher had, it was still amazingly flavorful. I served it with a puree of mashed potatoes and parsnip as well as a winter root vegetable hash with chicken and apple sausage. I got rave reviews. It was great paired with a rioja wine. We also served a syrah but I think the syrah didn't pair as well.
