Meat and Fish

Did you know that a French Dip isn’t French at all? I certainly didn’t. It actually comes from Southern California. It’s kind of like Ciopinno. For the longest time I thought Ciopinno came from Italy. Nope. A restaurant from San Francisco definitely takes the credit for “inventing” it. This just goes to show you how …

Well, it’s more like an enchilada pie, but we will get more into that later. I know it sounds weird, but trust me, it’s delicious. The original thought process behind this recipe was to use duck, but SURPRISE! No one has duck right now. Well one store had it, but it was about $30 for …

Do you ever just crave a meatball? Do you ever just crave a meatball with peaches? How about bourbon? Yes I was craving all of these things at once. I promise you I am not a lush. I do not sip on tumblers of straight bourbon every night. Only days that end in “y.” Ha, …

Zach and I are both huge fans of deviled eggs; and although they are absolutely delicious, they don’t travel very well. You need a special container, and then you have to keep them cold. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cooler larger enough to hold a deviled egg …

Most commonly though, when you think of stuffed shells you think of the traditional recipe of ricotta, a red sauce and sometimes sausage or another type of meat. Because it is fall, we decided eliminate the red sauce and sausage and add …
