    I'll be surprised if this isn't the best shepherd's pie you've ever eaten! This recipe is adapted from the New American Shakespeare Tavern in Atlanta, Georgia. I would like to point out that the chef at the Tavern likes to clarify that in England this would be called cottage pie because it is made with beef, not mutton (lamb) - "thus the need for the shepherd." Most Americans are more familiar with the name, shepherd's pie. No matter what you call it, this pie is something special ...chuck roast slow-cooked until it's falling apart tender with delicious vegetables and herbs, topped with garlic mashed potatoes. It smells so heavenly while it's cooking that I guarantee your family (and friends and neighbors) will gather around the oven waiting for you to serve it. Although, this shepherd's pie is fairly easy to prepare, make it on a day that you have some extra time, since it is a little time consuming...but, Oh, So Well Worth It!!!!!!

    Burgoo is the granddaddy of country stews. In its home state of Kentucky, it is one of the mainstays of Derby Day and is traditionally cooked in large kettles (usually in quantities no smaller than 5 gallons) set over outdoor fires. The ingredients vary with the cook, but to be an authentic Kentucky burgoo, the stew must contain mutton (now usually replaced by lamb). Ordinarily this good, old-fashioned stew cooks for 7 or 8 hours and is typically quite thick. In my recipe, the cooking time is cut slightly for a somewhat lighter stew.

    You can always serve this appetizer as an ordinary shrimp cocktail, with shrimp and sauce on the side (or in a martini glass). However, for a dramatic presentation and for the most effective delivery of the sauce, porcelain Chinese soup spoons are the way to go. Not only are they perfect for single servings, they eliminate the issue of "double-dipping." And, in each spoon you have the right amount of sauce to fulfill its promise of "going straight to your head." Feel free to adjust the amount of vodka in the sauce to suit your preference, either for a stronger taste or less of a bite. I promise that you'll be the talk of the town after serving this sensational (and quick and easy!) appetizer! Porcelain Chinese soup spoons are available at an inexpensive price at most Oriental supermarkets or on-line through

    This is Gingerbread with a Kick!! Once upon a time, gingerbread was spicy and bold, but over time it has become sweet ,bland, dull and dry. Now, you can serve this old, familiar dessert with "oomph"...moist, rich, and dense!!! Three sources of ginger (ground and fresh ginger in the cake and ginger ale in the glaze), along with stout beer and robust molasses turn this cake into something special.

    Recipe #490913

    How often have you ordered beer-battered onion rings just to be disappointed? Finding good onion rings is as rare (and just as welcome!) as finding a parking space in downtown Boston. Now, you can make onion rings that will bring "oohs" and "ahhs" right in the comfort of your own home. Prep time does not include time to marinate.

    Recipe #489302

    How can you beat this?? All the perfect ingredients are between two slices of lightly toasted bread...the juicy height-of-summer red tomatoes, the crunchy green lettuce leaves, the creamy mayo binding it all together, and, best of all, the incomparable meaty, smoky, salty-sweet flavor of the bacon. It doesn't get get better than this!!!!

    Recipe #486332

    Indulge and impress your guests with the perfect guacamole made to order right at the table by their very own "Guacamoliere" (YOU!!!)... you'll be known as the guacamole expert who mixes the freshest ingredients right in front of their eyes!!! If you want to get real daring, have a shot of Tequila ready to add to the other ingredients. Have all the ingredients that need to be diced, minced, and chopped already prepared and ready in separate, pretty little bowls, along with a larger bowl to do the mixing. (TIP: You may want to practice with your family, before putting on the "show" in front of company. Once you have it perfected, your performance should only be a couple of minutes.)

    The chocolate egg cream is a tasty drink that's been around since the 1920's. Popular in delicatessens throughout New York City, it contains neither egg nor cream. No one is totally certain where the name came from. While the traditional egg cream is made with a high-pressure seltzer siphon bottle, very few of us have these at home... so, you have to improvise to get that beautiful foamy white cap on top of your egg cream. It won't be the perfect deli-style egg cream, but it will come real close (I promise!!). You can also use vanilla syrup, instead of chocolate, for a Manhattan Egg Cream, the process is the same.

    Recipe #485839

    This always reminds me of the first time, many years ago, when I ate Veal Piccata at a wonderful, tiny, but always busy, Italian trattoria in Boston's North End. It has been one of my favorite dishes ever since - especially once I discovered how absolutely simple it is to make Veal Piccata at home. However, it is important to have all your ingredients prepared and ready to go, because this recipe comes together quickly. Also, for those of you who like capers in your Veal Piccata (I don't), add a tablespoon full at the time you add the lemon juice. MANGIA!!!!!

    Recipe #485787

    Many years ago, this recipe, along with 650 others, was entered into an Atlanta newspaper brownie contest and won first place. It is gooey and a hit with children...of all ages!!!!

    Recipe #485595

    The first chocolate chip cookie recipe was created in the 1930's by Ruth Wakefield, owner of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. Since Nana's cookies were based on this recipe, she always called them "Toll House Cookies." My brothers, cousins, and I (as well as many of the adults) came running when we smelled these baking. So, pour yourself a big glass of iced-cold milk, grab a couple of these cookies, sit back, relax, and return to a simpler time!

    Mama's prescription for New England's dreariest winter days: "Bundle up, and sip this soup. (Repeat as needed)" This is a very nutritious, hearty, and satisfying meal in a bowl. It's also very easy to make. Sprinkle with a touch of Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese....Hmmmmm!

    Recipe #481582

    I love my little shih tzu, Humphrey, who I named after my favorite actor. I also spoil him and this is his favorite supper. By the way, my shih tzu is smarter than many parents' "honor students".

    Recipe #481150

    I love stuffed peppers, but don't always have the time to make them. So, you might call this the "Lazy Man's Stuffed Peppers", since it has all the great taste, but is so quick and easy. This is very hearty...great comfort food!!!

    Recipe #479795

    This really is a fabulous recipe!!! I've tried a number of others and this is, by far, the best. Don't be surprised if a couple of people polish off the whole batch in one sitting. Also, the marinade makes a delicious salad dressing after you've used up the garlic. Preparation time does not include time to marinate. NOTE: You can double the garlic cloves in this recipe and still have enough marinade to cover.

    Recipe #476557

    It wouldn't be the Easter holiday without Pizza Rustica. Traditionally served at an Easter brunch or dinner, this pie is also a great brunch option on any day. There are many variations of this recipe, but this is my favorite. This is adapted from the recipe from Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey.

    Recipe #476050

    Always a hit!!...and it's easy to make!!!

    Recipe #475178

    Fantastic!!! Quick and Easy!! I usually have everything on hand to make this recipe for last minute guests. Serve with tortilla chips, corn chips, or crackers.

    Recipe #475168

    These little stuffed peppers are absolutely addictive! Buy the smallest, one-bite-size peppers, but be careful - they are hot!! Serve at room temperature with salami, wedges of Provolone cheese, and a nice bottle of white wine, such as Pinot Grigio.

    Recipe #474433

    A rich, meaty, and zesty "ragu". Bolognese Sauce is the backbone of Northern Italian cooking, and once you try it you'll never toss your spaghetti with store-bought pasta sauce again. However, there are as many recipe versions of this delicious slow-cooked sauce as there are cooks in the Italian city of Bologna. The secret ingredient to a true Bolognese Sauce is milk (or cream), which is added in such small amount, you don't even know it's there. TIP: Bolognese Sauce is best made the day before to allow the flavors to develop. Cool the sauce, uncovered, and then refrigerate in an airtight container. Can also be frozen.
