    A cast iron pan is a perfect way to cook shepherd's pie. It's a great way to saute the meat and spices to form the base, and then you can spread the potatoes right into the pan and put the whole thing into the oven. It's also a great presentation for the dish. Lamb is the traditional choice for…

    This is a great winter soup that has a lot of ingredients but is easy to make. If you can't find kale, any other leafy green will do fine. This also benefits from a little hot sauce.

    I love making cajun and creole dishes like gumbo and jambalaya. Most of the recipes I use recommend homemade shrimp stock, advice that I always ignored, and my dishes turned out fine. One day I finally made stock with this recipe, and then used it in my next gumbo. The dish was miles better tha…

    Using bacon at the beginning of this recipe gives it a great smoky flavor. The whole thing comes together really quickly, and can easily be made on a weeknight. Cod is the classic fish to use in this dish, but other flaky fish such as haddock or even tilapia will work as well.

    Fettuccine Alfredo is an incredibly rich dish, and can be a little intimidating. But the truth is, it's really easy to make, and can be put together in just a little more time than it takes to cook the pasta. The incorporation of two egg yolks really puts this over the top, but it's also delicio…

    We always make extra rice, to have leftovers for fried rice. There are almost infinite fried rice variations, and it's a great way to use leftovers. Breakfast Fried Rice is a good use for the last few slices of bacon in the pack, and the extra flavor from the soy sauce really makes this work. I…

    This is a really easy weeknight dish, that comes together quickly yet has great taste. Orecchiette are shaped like little bowls, and are great with a chunky sauce like this one. If your grocery store doesn't have them, bowtie, penne, or rigatoni pasta works just as well.

    An easy but luxurious meal. Tomato sauce and Italian sausage is always a great combination, and the addition of a touch of heavy cream to the sauce at the end makes this a really special dish. Johnsonville Italian Sausage has a nice blend of spices for this dish.
