Curry Udon with Beef

I have been exploring the world of Japanese cuisine recently with the help of a fabulous cookbook called Japanese Soul Cooking by Tadashi Ono and Harris Salat. Far beyond sushi and teriyaki, the book covers everything from Soba to tempura, and delivers a rich…

Salty’s Skirt Steak Tacos

steak tacos

Salty is not much of a cook, but when it comes to grilling, the man loves his craft. He also loves his steak, so nothing makes him more eager to help than a delectably marinated piece of beef. Shake throws in her margaritas, I…

Citrus Beef with Sesame Soba Noodles

A rich dressing of toasted sesame oil and soy sauce tossed with hearty buckwheat noodles is the perfect base for citrus marinated flatiron steak. Throw on a steamed veggie or five and you have dinner ready in less than 45 minutes. Ingredients Serves 6 …

Salty holds up the male end of the household by being a classic meat and potatoes guy, and his favorite snack is all about quality and simplicity. Whether you cheat like us or make the sauce from scratch, this dish is ready in less…

Oven-Baked Beef Empanadas

Beef Empanadas with Garlic Rance

I threw these little morsels together on a whim one day during the holidays for guests, and I’ve probably made them five times since. Savory, hot, and filling, these little pastries are the perfect snack for parties, football games, or potlucks. Throw in a…

Penny’s Pot Roast

The foundation of my cooking abilities is built entirely on a stack of handwritten recipe cards from my mother-in-law. Beyond chicken soup and scrambled eggs, I did not have much experience in the kitchen when I met my husband, but he was a good…

Luxury from Economy: Deglazing, Gravies and Reductions

Sauce is my favorite thing to make (I’m sure this surprises you greatly.)  Whether I’m working on the long, slow reduction of demi-glace or a quick, punchy gastrique, I always feel just a little more accomplished when sauce is involved.  I have two staple…
