Featured Recipes

Baby Egg Rolls

This easy appetizer is made with wonton wrappers that may be found in the produce, dairy or freezer section of many supermarkets.

Steak with Steak Butter

From Episode 601 of "Sara's Weeknight Meals", this quick entree makes a weeknight meal a celebration.

Warm Chocolate Cheesecake

Although I’m not a fool for traditional cheesecake, I’m very partial to this chocolate version, especially when it’s eaten warm.

Chicken Piccata

This easy dish is one of my "Four Quick Chicken Recipes" from "Sara Moulton Cooks at Home." They all start with the same easy prep and become entirely different entrees.

Stuffed Strawberries

I’m a big fan of cannoli, especially the filling. In this dessert, I swap the cannoli’s crunchy cylinder of deep-fried dough for a large succulent strawberry.

Grilled Lamb and Onion Kabobs

Lemon, olive oil, rosemary, and garlic – this is my favorite marinade for lamb, whether I am cooking a roast or skewering kabobs.

Spiced Baby Back Ribs

One of my favorite field trips was to Memphis for their annual barbecue cook-off. This is my own version of oven-baked ribs inspired by those I tasted.

Pasta Pizza

Anytime you make angel hair pasta, just cook double the amount you need. The leftover pasta, recast as the star of this recipe, can provide you with the base for dinner the next night.

Chorizo Chicken Wings

These spicy wings make a perfect weeknight meal as well as a snack. If you don’t have rice krispies in house you could substitute cornflakes or crackers.

Roasted Salmon with Hot Mustard Cracker Topping

A topping of sour cream and mustard with a sprinkle of wasabi rice crackers adds heat to this flavorful salmon.

Dried Apple and Cheddar Strudel

A variation on the old New England custom of serving a slice of warm apple pie with a wedge of sharp Cheddar. The strength of the flavors make this a winner.

Det Burgers

This generously-topped burger is one of my all-time favorites. I learned to make it at my first official cooking job in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
