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..

While many rice pudding recipes are as simple as that, we wanted to bring a few extra ingredients to the table to really make this dish shine. In our recipe, we call for..

My Cook: Breakfast Sausage Casserole

May 2, 2019
- Pork,

Serves 6-8

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Cook Time: 4 hours and 30 minutes

We wanted a savory breakfast that packed eggs, sausage, and hashbrowns all into one easy-to-make dish. Better yet if it required minimal prep so that we could assemble it the night before and have it ready to go in the morning. Instead of peeling, shredding, and draining raw potatoes, we call for frozen, shredded hash browns to speed the recipe along. To save on clean up,..

My Cook: Texas Chili and Cornbread

April 10, 2019
- Beef,

Serves 4

Active Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 7.5 hours

Texas chili is distinguished from other chilis by two things. Number one, it must be made with whole pieces of beef, no ground meat here. Second, it must not have beans. Our Texas chili recipe features smoky and spicy chipotle peppers, as well as the bitter addition of unsweetened cocoa powder. Chocolate is an influence from south of the border where it is prominently used in molé, a..

My Cook: Spaghetti Carbonara with Roasted Caesar Broccoli

March 15, 2019
- Pork,

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 1 hr, 45 minutes

Spaghetti Carbonara is a simply perfect dish. A silky, rich egg sauce coats the tender al dente noodles which are dotted with crispy bites of pancetta and topped with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Cooking the egg yolks low and slow thickens them into an unctuous sauce and has the added benefit of pasteurizing the egg. Tossed with a little of the starchy pasta water, the sauce perfectly coats..

My Cook: Manicotti

March 13, 2019

Serves 2

Active prep time: 15 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Traditional manicotti recipes call for rolled, homemade crepes instead of store bought pasta. While homemade crepes stuffed with ricotta and topped with marinara sound delicious, we wanted a recipe that wouldn’t take hours to make. Our version only takes about 15 minutes to assemble thanks to the uncooked manicotti tubes, which are a breeze to fill. The filling for the..

My Cook: Short Rib Mac and Cheese

March 8, 2019
- Beef,

Active Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 13 hours

Mac and cheese gets an adult upgrade in this recipe, but kids of all ages will love this dish. Beef short rib braised in red wine and aromatics is the perfect accompaniment to creamy, Gruyere-laced, breadcrumb-topped mac and cheese. Short ribs are well-marbled cuts of beef taken from the bottom ends of the ribs. The marbling means a good amount of fat helps to keep the meat moist during the long..

Sesame chicken is a classic Americanized dish found in Chinese restaurants across the United States. Sweet, sour, and sticky, this dish is usually deep fried, but we have adapted this recipe for your Suvie without sacrificing any flavor. Typically this dish is sweeter than it is spicy, but if you want to up the heat feel free to increase the amount of chili sauce to 1 tbsp...
