Lamb Korma

Lamb korma: lamb shoulder braises in a spicy, creamy sauce with veggies, and is served over Indian rice. I have tried Indian food at least three times, but was never that happy with the dishes I'd tried (except naan bread — how could anyone dislike naan bread??). I'm not averse to spicy foods, so it wasn't …

Pizza with Ground Lamb, Leeks and Rosemary

Life got a little crazy. We fell into a food rut, then went through a period where we'd completely forget to defrost something for dinner, and had quite a few nights of spaghetti, or take-out, or breakfast for dinner (eggs, or pancakes). My birthday was almost two weeks ago, and my parents made a delicious …

Steak Fajitas

My family is very close. I live in Philadelphia, as do my brother and sister-in-law, and my parents live in a suburb just outside of the city. My aunt, uncle and their three kids live in a different suburb. This allows us all to get together frequently, which I absolutely love. My mom also belongs …

Steak Pizzaiola

Steak is not often on the menu in our household. But it was important to me to make The Mister Steak and Eggs for Father's Day, and steak was on sale at our local grocery store. It had to be fate! I found a nearly-2-pound sirloin steak for under $10.00. I set aside 8 ounces …

Steak with Parmesan Spinach

This dinner was a team effort. I've never been comfortable cooking steak. Probably because past efforts have resulted in overcooked steak, and therefore I'm loathe to "practice." Steak isn't exactly cheap (is anything these days?), and I'm scared to potentially waste it. So, Dave cooked the steak while I prepared the spinach.  I bookmarked the …

Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls

Before I moved to a different neighborhood in Philadelphia, I lived just up the street from the New Wave Cafe. Though many items on their menu sounded delicious, I always ordered the same thing: their Philly Cheesesteak Spring Roll appetizer. Being a Philly girl, born and raised, I love cheesesteaks. But they only come in …

Basil Burgers

I wanted something quick and easy for dinner tonight. Ground meat was on sale at the grocery store, and on a whim, I picked up a package of ground beef, pork and veal (yes, all in one package -- it's marketed as "fresh meatloaf"). These burgers are very flavorful and juicy.  Basil BurgersAdapted from AllRecipes.comServes …
