A few years ago, I made a Pork Tenderloin Marsala for the first time, for the simple reason that I didn’t have any chicken handy. And while Chicken Marsala may be more the common, the wine flavored mushroom sauce goes really well with a perfectly cooked piece of pork tenderloin.
This is a debugging block
New York Strip, is one of my all-time favorite cuts of steak. Cooked to a perfect medium rare, the New York Strip has great favor, a tender texture, and is perfect with all the traditional steakhouse side dishes. The quality the meat, as always is super important, and here I’m cooking some of the best from Certified Steak and Seafood.
Filet Mignon in a Peppercorn Sauce, is one of my all-time favorite recipes to make at home. While it comes off as a complicated and complex meal, it’s actually very simple to make, with just a few ingredients. The star ingredient of course is the Filet itself, and for this recipe I’m using some wonderful steaks from Certified Steak and Seafood.
We all think of Pesto as the green pasta sauce, made with basil, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, etc…but over the past several years, I’ve come to think of pesto as a technique as much as a specific recipe.

Alfredo sauce is very simple to make, with just a few ingredients and it’s a perfect match for chicken. The cream in the sauce provides a bit of fat, that the lean chicken doesn’t have, and of course the flavor of alfredo sauce is almost magical. Just a little bit on the pl

This sauce, still with meat, drops most of the tomato, adding a bit more cream and ricotta…which leaves it…well…white.
I love a good pesto…but I also love to tinker with recipes, and it’s in that spirt that I made this broccoli pesto. Traditionally, pesto is a very tasty combo of ground, garlic, pinenuts, parmesan cheese, olive oil and…basil. I love it. But I also love broccoli. And I really love the health benefits of eating broccoli, so I fiddled around a bit, and started make broccoli pesto essentially,
As a kid, my mother cooked spaghetti sauce. And it was great, but there one recipe and one recipe only. Over the years, I’ve come to discover the wide variety of different pasta sauce recipes, and one of my favorites is Arrabiata Sauce. Arrabiata sauce in preparation is not much different than a marinara sauce, but what makes it distinct is the addition of hot chili
I’ve got another great recipe, to add to your (hopefully growing) list of great boneless, skinless chicken breast recipes. This one an Italian Classic - Chicken Marsala. I just started making this dish a few years ago, and it’s developed in a pretty consist hit in my house. And frankly, once you learn the cooking techniques…out will come pork marsala, veal mar
