Traditional Osso Bucco is made with veal shanks. We don't raise veal, but we find that our grass fed beef shanks are a great substitute. Perfect for a hearty fall dinner. Serve with creamy rissotto, it makes for an impressive, but easy meal.
MAKE-YOUR-OWN PIZZA WITH GROUND BEEF
Make your own pizza is a weekly dinner at our house. Start with a basic ball of dough from the grocery store (or even better, make your own), add sauce and cheese, and any other topping. We love using some of our ground beef!

We think pulled pork is just about the most delicious, easiest thing you can make from a pork shoulder -- one of the most affordable cuts from the pig. Here's a recipe so simple, your kid can do it.

I love this recipe for basic cocktail meatballs not just because they make them with both ground beef and ground pork, but because they show you how to make them three ways. It's the story of my cooking life: learn the basics and riff from there.
Again, we think simple is best. Here's a recipe for roast chicken that's pared down to basics. Once you've mastered this, feel free to experiment with adding more and different herbs and aromatics. CLICK HERE.
PERFECT SOFT BOILED EGG
Put enough water in a small saucepan to just cover the eggs. Put the eggs back in the fridge. Bring the water just to a boil and add the eggs directly from the fridge. Return to boil and continue to boil for 6 minutes (from the time eggs go in the water). Remove from boiling water and rinse under cold water for 30 seconds (this stops cooking and makes it easy to handle eggs while peeling).
