    Fried Onion Straws/Strings

    Sorry it took me so long to get this posted. Kept meaning to do it and kept forgetting. It's more of a technique than anything. I don't know why we don't do these more often because they are good and fairly easy to make. I used a mandoline to thinly slice a red onion (you could use...

    Belly for Chinese pork belly buns

    This is the piece I cut off from the porchetta. It cured for 2 days. I used the cure from Squirrel's post, then roasted in oven via Momofuku's method via Food 52 to a temp of 170. We'll be having the buns in the next day or 2. The drippings will be used as the fat in the buns.

    All Belly Porchetta

    1 piece around 4-pound skinless pork belly. I started out with a 5.29 pound belly, cut off the thicker end for another use, so that left a fairly equal thickness of pork belly. Kosher salt 1 Tbsp black peppercorns 1-1/2 Tbsp fennel seeds 1/2 Tbsp crushed red pepper flakes 1 tsp dried rosemary...

    Orecchiette with a bacon soubise sauce

    It's not a traditional soubise since it uses bacon grease instead of butter, but it came out really good. I used all scallions/green onions the first time I made this. The second time I used 1 bunch of scallions/green onions and a new/spring onion. We liked the all scallions recipe the best...

    Mascarpone brownies

    The last time I made this I cut down the butter to 3/4 cup and the sugar to 7/8. Didn't really taste any difference, but would check about 5 minutes earlier for doneness. I also added 1/2 tsp instant espresso powder each to the brownie batter and the chocolate ganache. Since I know that some...

    Double cut lollipop lamb chops

    I don't really have a recipe for these. At least an hour before cooking, make a paste with garlic, salt and rosemary (or thyme), work in some lemon zest (I zested half of a large lemon for an 8-bone rack of lamb, i.e. 4 double chops), pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice, then some EVOO to make...

    Leek and bacon flan

    These have a pretty strong leek flavor so need an assertive lamb or beef dish, or they totally will take over. They could also be used as a starter or a light lunch (maybe in a slightly larger cup with a longer baking time) over a bed of sweated leeks or spinach and either leeks or onions...

    Craig fell and broke both bones in several places in his lower left leg about 3 inches above his ankle Friday evening. He had surgery Saturday and ended up with plates, screws and a rod. Yesterday was really bad. He was disoriented and kept asking what happened to him and what were THEY doing...

    Prosciutto bread

    I have served this with an oven dried tomato pesto, butter, marinara sauce, and a cannellini bean pesto (Lydia Bastianich). I like it best with the pestos and butter. Craig likes the tomato sauce best, with the oven dried tomato pesto second. Prosciutto bread (makes 1 loaf, can be doubled...
