Guacamole Tex-Mex

Guacamole Tex-Mex by Amos Miller

Super simple - fast - packs just enough punch. It will be the best you ever tasted. Bring on the cervesas, margaritas - and lots of quality tortilla chips! Just like Chipotle - but homemade!

Cinghiale in agrodolce (Sweet and Sour Wild Boar)

Cinghiale in agrodolce (Sweet and Sour Wild Boar) by Frank Fariello

Genuine Italian cookery generally has straight-forward taste profiles. As I’ve said before, one of the best ways to tell if a recipe is really Italian is to count the ingredient list: you should have your doubts about any recipe with over, say, seven ingredients; more than ten, and you should turn the page. Well, here’s the exception…

Asian-inspired Mini-Meatballs

Asian-inspired Mini-Meatballs by Amos Miller

A perfect appetizer, great hot or cold, and can be easily made the day before the party in a large crock pot. All you’ll need is toothpicks and tiny plates! I’ve built upon an interesting recipe I found for meatballs with a teriyaki sauce and the inclusion of, yes, dried cranberries. This was so tasty when I first made my…

Mario's Kick-Ass Barbecue Sauce

Mario's Kick-Ass Barbecue Sauce by Robyn Savoie

This sauce recipe deserves 5 stars! I adapted the original recipe by adding the zest from the fresh orange and lemon. Also used coarse-grain brown mustard instead of Dijon; your preference. Finally, my hot sauce of choice is Cholula plain but I think the lime flavored would work great too. I Shanghai'd this recipe and the…

Texas Style Barbecued Chicken by Robyn Savoie

This recipe and sauce deserves 5 stars! I used hickory chips but next time, I'm using mesquite. I Shanghai'd this recipe and the attached barbecue sauce from Mario Batali's cookbook "Mario Tailgates NASCAR Style" published in 2006.

Grilled Pork Scallopini

Grilled Pork Scallopini by Robyn Savoie

This dish has all the flavors of my favorite Italian pork dishes but without the cleanup or tricky pan work. You can make it with lamb, veal or boneless chicken breast/thighs as well.

Garlic-Roasted Chicken Strips With Tequila Dip

Garlic-Roasted Chicken Strips With Tequila Dip by Robyn Savoie

Fresh boneless chicken thighs taste the very best here, but the frozen variety will do. This looks like a lot of garlic, but it becomes quite mild during cooking. You'll smell it though!

Brickyard Barbecued Game Hens

Brickyard Barbecued Game Hens by Robyn Savoie

I found this fantastic grilled game hen recipe in Mario Batali's "Mario Tailgates NASCAR Style" cookbook published in 2006. These game hens are grilled under a foil wrapped brick Tuscan style or Pollo al Mattone. Then the herb pesto rub makes them tastier, so try to let the birds marinate overnight before cooking. "As for…
