Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler with Gingered Biscuit Topping

Strawberries and rhubarb are a delicious way to welcome spring! The sweet strawberries temper the rhubarb's tartness.

"Det" Burgers

Det Burgers, a specialty that I learned to make at my first official cooking job in Ann Arbor, Michigan would be a perfect way to showcase your homemade "ground" beef (See above).

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.

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.

Cheatin' Jambalaya

In its authentic form this Cajun specialty is so wonderful that Hank Williams wrote a love song to it. My version is much simpler but does have many of the same elements.

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.

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.

Steak with Steak Butter

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

Red Beans and Rice Soup

Red beans and rice is a signature dish in New Orleans but now that all of us everywhere enjoy it, I didn’t see why I can’t turn this classic into a delicious soup.
