Braised carrots are one of the simplest things you can cook. All you need is whole carrots, a little liquid, and some seasoning, and you’re guaranteed a delicious dish. The slow, low temperature cooking process helps convert the carrots into their sweetest, most tender selves. To give this dish a Moroccan flair we used Ras el Hanout, which is a spice blend from the region. Ras el..

Sizzling skillets sure sound like fun, until you get oil splatter all over your shirt! Suvie’s super simple steak fajitas recipe is an easy way to get your fajita fix without having to fix your shirt. We use a pre-cut shaved beef from the grocery store (like what you would use for Philly cheesesteaks) to maximize our marinade and produce a tender steak with minimal effort, but you can..

Serves 6-8

Total Cook Time: 2 hrs 15 minutes

Spanakopita is a traditional Greek pastry that is made with the notoriously finicky and labor-intensive phyllo dough. A paper-thin sheet of pastry is brushed with butter or oil, and then rolled up and filled with a mixture of spinach, herbs, and feta cheese. We took all of the fantastic Spanakopita flavors and piled them into an easy to prepare frittata! Scallions, fresh..

Dijon and honey are the dynamic duo marinade that imbues the..

- Beef,

Serves 2

Active Time: 15 minutes

Total Cook Time: 11.5 hours

Ropa vieja is a Cuban dish that translates to “old clothes”. While this may not be the most appetizing description, it refers to this dish’s signature meat, flank steak, when it breaks down to long, juicy strands of meat after a lengthy braise. While we often think of flank steak as a quick-cook cut best marinated and then grilled over red-hot coals, in this dish we skip the grill..

Total Cook Time: 13.5 hours

Short ribs are one of the most versatile cuts of beef. They can be seared, glazed, braised, roasted, grilled, the list goes on and on. There are two reasons for this versatility: first, short ribs have lots of delicious beefy fat, and fat means flavor. Second, short ribs have a really fine texture, so when you braise them they get very tender and melt in your mouth. This is all a..

Most chicken enchilada recipes require you to have pre-cooked chicken.

Then simply roll up the fillings with the flour tortillas,..

My Cook: Salmon and Asparagus Orecchiette

June 3, 2019

Serves 2

Active Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 1.5 hour

While salmon and asparagus are the stars of this dish there’s a secret ingredient that steals the show. Crème fraîche is the richer, thicker, French cousin of sour cream and it single-handedly takes this dish to a whole new level. Crème fraîche is not quite as tangy as sour cream, but still has a little pucker that works well with the lemon and complements the mellow flavor of the dill. The..
