PORTOBELLO BURGERS

On Labor Day I did what most Americans do—which is heat up the old grill and have a barbecue. So, what else is new? With me, it was that I didn’t go the usual burgers and franks route. I decided this time around to grill portobello burgers.… Read more...

ROSEMARY-OLIVE FOCACCIA

GRILLED PORK CHOPS WITH GARLICKY FRUIT SAUCE

This is my favorite grilled pork chop dish. Why? Simply because it can include a fruit spread, jelly or jam—whatever you have in the fridge to give it a sweet touch. That, combined with the garlic (and we love garlic), makes it divine.… Read more...

The most common way to cook mussels is simply, after cleaning the suckers, place in a pan, add a splash of water (or white wine or broth), bring to a boil, cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes.  Stir the mussels and check to see if they have open, and serve.… Read more...

SMOKEY AND FIERY SKIRT STEAK WITH AVOCADO-OREGANO RELISH Relish
