When Sunday rolls around, a Roast Pork Loin, is near the top of my favorite things to cook list. There’s something special about a roast, that gets the whole family together around the table for a “traditional” meal, and while I love roast chickens, roast beef, a roasted pork provides a ton of great options.

Recipes and Techniques
Ribeye steak, is one of my absolute favorites. In fact, I’ve often heard them called “the chefs cut”, because the pro’s prefer them for their great marbling which brings both more flavor and a very tender texture to the meat. These Certified Steak Ribeyes deliver on all points, and I loved making them.
This Burrata Crostini is a quick and easy recipe that I frequently turn to when I’m hosing a party. Crostini, is just a fancy word for toasted bread. The great thing is, that there are tons of things that taste great on top of good toasted bread! For this recipe we top the crostini with some Burrata cheese, which is a type of mozzerlla that is more creamy and very mild tasting.
Filet Mignon in a Peppercorn Sauce, is one of my all-time favorite recipes to make at home. While it comes off as a complicated and complex meal, it’s actually very simple to make, with just a few ingredients. The star ingredient of course is the Filet itself, and for this recipe I’m using some wonderful steaks from Certified Steak and Seafood.
I see people (including myself) cooking boneless skinless chicken breasts all the time….they are so simple to do, and have a ton of great uses. However, there’s always something special about cooking meat on the bone, and here, I’m going to show you how to roast off the perfect bone-in chicken breast.
We all think of Pesto as the green pasta sauce, made with basil, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, etc…but over the past several years, I’ve come to think of pesto as a technique as much as a specific recipe. If a pesto is simply a pureed, generally uncooked, pasta sauce…well, then you can make all kinds of pestos. And one of my favorites is walnut pesto.
Coq Au Vin sounds pretty intimidating, until you realized it’s just Chicken In Wine…how hard that can be? I’ll tell ya, it’s not hard at all, but it tastes so yummy and complex, you’ll be completely blown away! Traditionally, coq au vin was made with old, tough chickens (that couldn’t lay eggs anymore) that needed to be braised a long time to make them tender.
Alfredo sauce is as simple as it is delicious. I mean cream and cheese…how you can go wrong? I keep this alfredo sauce recipe to just a few ingredients, but it’s actually a very easy sauce to modify with things like garlic, shallots, herbs, or other vegetables. And it has a ton of uses.
