Homemade Pasta + Tomato Sauce with Parmesan Rind

Homemade Pasta + Tomato Sauce with Parmesan Rind

Boy was this a delicious meal. We stopped by our local cheese shop, and on a whim bought some fresh burrata. When we tried to decide what we would actually eat the burrata with, all we could settle on was some kind of awesome pasta. I set my sights on making a damn good tomato sauce…

Fancy BLTs

Fancy BLTs

This post should really be called PATJs, which is short for Pancetta, Argulua, and Tomato Jam sandwiches, but I don’t think you’d be able to understand what I was talking about if that was the title. But all of the ingredients in this sandwich are fancied up version of the classic BLT sandwich served on…

Cubano Pork Tenderloin

Cubano Pork Tenderloin

We recently went to a cuban restaurant and dined on a delicious Cuban sandwich. When I think Cuban sandwich, I want to sign up and dig in fast. While perusing a newly purchased cookbook, I couldn’t not volunteer to cook Cubano Pork Tenderloin when we came upon it. Even though this might seem or look…

Hatch Chile Goat Cheese Cakes

Hatch Chile Goat Cheese Cakes

This deceptively simple title belies the amazing combination of flavors that live in this dish. We took Dustin’s great appetizer from awhile back and turned it into possibly our favorite dinner from Hatch chile week(s)— Hatch Chile Goat Cheese Cakes with Caramelized Bacon and Spinach Salad. To make the delicious goat cheese cakes, I blended…

BLTA Pasta

BLTA Pasta

I know the final product was not what Dustin was expecting when I told him I was making him BLTA pasta, but in the end I think he was pleasantly surprised with how nice and gourmet-feeling this dish came out. Typically a BLT is not what you’d consider fancy, but take all of its standard…

Asian-Style Pork Belly with Snap Peas

Asian-Style Pork Belly with Snap Peas

Pork belly is a fun challenge. Since its so fatty you don’t want to feel like you’re biting into pure fat (even though you pretty much are). You want tender meat, soft and moist from the fat with perfectly crisp exteriors to compliment with a crunch. We served our asian style pork belly over a…

Pineapple Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Pineapple Marinated Pork Tenderloin

I’ve never really gotten behind Hawaiian pizza. That much pineapple on a pizza just seems like it would be too sweet, even for someone like me. But the idea of marinating pork in pineapple is something I was totally on board with. This grilled pork tenderloin came out better than we expected. This meal (along…

Red Beans and Rice

Red Beans and Rice

I first had red beans and rice at a party back in Seattle. Immediately afterwards, I begged Erin to make red beans and rice for me. Years later, I had to finally give in and make it myself :) This creole dish is so tasty and flavorful, you can’t help but have multiple bowls. We followed…

Pepperoni Pizza Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Pepperoni Pizza Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Seriously, at this point what flavors haven’t I incorporated into macaroni and cheese? Well, the answer would be pizza. We took all of our favorite pizza flavors, eliminated the crust in favor of whole wheat pasta shells ands this pepperoni pizza mac ‘n’ cheese was born. We actually didn’t use pepperoni, but salami instead, so…

Fennel Sausage Pizza

Fennel Sausage Pizza

As good as the Animal Style Cheeseburger Pizza was, it was not, however, our special Valentine’s pizza. For that evening, we went with something a little fancier feeling and more sophisticated in flavor (we did make double the amount of pizza dough when we made the cheeseburger pizza to cut down on our Valentine’s evening…
