Pork Chop Brine

In this recipe I make a flavored brine for pork chops or pork tenderloin, which is based on my basic brine recipe. Pork can become overcooked pretty quickly and the brining process gives you a bit more insurance by getting some additional moisture in the meat. My flavored brine for pork chops, uses...

Making a Bechamel Sauce
12 October, 2010

Making a Bechamel Sauce

Another of the French “mother” sauces, Bachemel is a pretty simple combination of roux and milk (or cream). The combination forms a thick white sauce that can be taken a number of different ways. Adding some cheese, I use it for my mac-‘n-cheese, I’ll also put it (sometimes) as a layer in my lasagna recipes, and there are a hundred other uses.

Mushroom Bruschetta Recipe
26 September, 2010

Mushroom Bruschetta

Traditional bruscheta is fresh tomato and basil on a crostini, and I love them. But there is no reason not to take that same technique and apply it to hundreds of different toppings. This recipe is a simple appetizer or h’ordeauvs that can be made ahead of time and assembled at the last minute. It’s also great to make this with a traditional tomato bruschetta as a counter point.
