Beef Pizzaiola

All the flavors of Italy come tougher perfectly in this easy and sublime recipe. Tomatoes, olives, capers, anchovies, and oregano mingle to make a truly delicious topping for a simply cooked steak. If you prefer to grill the steak, just make the sauce in a skillet. Read more

Seedy Rosemary Soda Bread

Here is another variation on the humble yet time-tested soda bread. This version includes a mixture of seeds such as pumpkin, sunflower, poppy, and sesame, but you can use just one type if you wish. The addition of whole wheat flour adds a lovely nuttiness to complement the seeds. Serve this scrumptious little loaf with salted butter to spread. Read more

Turkey Sausage and Pesto Soup

We always have basil pesto on hand and here is a dandy and delicious way to make use of it. (If you don’t make it yourself, the Kirkland brand from Costco is really good!) The soup comes together quickly because already-cooked sausages are used, and it is bursting with onions, carrots, spinach, and orzo. The small addition of lemon juice just before serving balances the acid and adds a lovely fresh flavor. Read more

Chicken Saag
