Breakfast Butternut Squash

Breakfast Butternut Squash

Back in my day, a common trope was the idea that carrots somehow gave you super vision. You’d see a cartoon bunny eat a carrot and then be able to see something miles away. I know I paid particularly strong attention to this and spent much of my childhood...

Raichini Muffins

Raichini Muffins

When  I came up with the name for this recipe, I was reminded of the movie Willow and the Brownies telling Madmartigan that he was a stupid Daikini. “I stole the baby from you, Daikini! While you were taking a peepee!” Now that I’ve alienated most of...

A unique guest post this week! We haven’t been posting recipes for a while, so we enlisted the help of Dave Wendel, husband of Ann Wendel of Prana-PT. You may remember Ann from our vacation team where she was helpfully involved when we could not or from the fact...
Buffalo in a Pig’s Blanket

Buffalo in a Pig’s Blanket

We’re extremely lucky. We happen to have two tenants that live in our basement who happen to be in no position to pay their agreed upon rent! How is this a good thing, you ask? Well, our favorite freeloaders are my younger brother and his girlfriend, both of...
Our Easter and Mint Lamb Meatballs

Our Easter and Mint Lamb Meatballs

Wow, what an amazing weekend we had. This post is uber-picture heavy, so I’ll keep the words to a minimum. Friday afternoon I left work early (yeah!) and the family headed out to Algonkian Regional Park. We stayed in a beautiful 4 bedroom cottage on the Potomac...
Rendering Suet into Tallow

Rendering Suet into Tallow

A few weeks back we visited Mt. Vernon Farms and, among the other goodies we got, picked up some grass-fed beef suet. Suet is essentially pure fat that is sometimes used in its natural form, but is usually used to render into tallow. We love to use tallow and lard in...

Lamb Neck Stew

Lamb Neck Stew

As we mentioned earlier, we’ll be making an effort to teach you how cook more unusual cuts of meat. That’s because we’ve committed to only buying pastured, humane meat from now on. And that’s not cheap. Guess what? Unusual cuts are much more...

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Caramelized Tomato Eye of Round

Caramelized Tomato Eye of Round

We’ve been saving this recipe to share for just the right time. Since Stacy rarely cooks dinner, it’s a nice treat for us all. Her imagination varies from mine, so when she told me she was working on a one-pot recipe for an Eye of Round inspired by Bill...
