Mezzelune al brasato (Half-moon Pasta filled with Braised Beef)

Mezzelune al brasato (Half-moon Pasta filled with Braised Beef) by Frank Fariello

Here's a wonderful way to 'recycle' leftover brasato (beef braised in red wine) or other pot roast—as a filling for stuffed pasta. In Piemonte, where this dish originates, the usual pasta to be stuffed with this brasato filling is actually agnolotti…

Garlic & Lemon Butter Shrimp

Garlic & Lemon Butter Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe for pan searing shrimp is one of my favorites. I adapted it from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. It is full of flavor and the shrimp will come out brown and slightly caramelized if you pan sear them as described. We tried two different recipes the same night and compared side by side. This was the consensus, but not…

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Farro Salad

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Farro Salad by John Spottiswood

This recipe is adapted from one by Susan Spungen. I thought it was phenomenal. If you can't find Farro, you coud substitute brown rice or pearl barley, but get Farro if you can. It's wonderful. You might consider serving this as a side for Thanksgiving. It would make a great addition.

A Taste of Utica Chocolate Filled Cookies

A Taste of Utica Chocolate Filled Cookies by Joanne

Not too difficult and certainly worth every effort. This delightful cookie comes in a log and you simply slice as desired. It's a good thing the recipe makes 3 large cookie logs because you'll want a lot of extra.

Pere al vino rosso (Pears in Red Wine Sauce)

Pere al vino rosso (Pears in Red Wine Sauce) by Frank Fariello

Dessert is our house is normally a piece of fruit, perhaps with some cheese, and, in winter, some mixed nuts in their shells. This is why you will not find very many desserts featured on this blog. But there is at least one prepared dessert that makes its way on to our table in the colder months: pere al vino rosso, or pears poached…

Funghi trifolati ("Truffled" mushrooms)

Funghi trifolati ("Truffled" mushrooms) by Frank Fariello

This is one of the easiest and most versatile vegetable dishes in the Italian repertoire: funghi trifolati, or 'truffled' mushooms, so called because the thinly sliced and sautéed mushrooms are said to resemble that other, more highly prized tuber. I use two methods to make funghi trifolati, and both are equally easy:
