Italian Braised Short Ribs

Italian Braised Short Ribs

Richly flavored comfort food that’s easy to make ahead

Ready for some fall fare? This deep-flavored dish will take the chill off.

Long, slow cooking tenderizes short ribs and extracts maximum flavor from them. And this dish is best if you make it a day or so ahead of time, then reheat it right before serving. That makes it perfect for company.

So get those dinner invitations ready. No engraving required.

Mexican-Spiced Green Bean Salad

A tasty and tongue-tingling starter (or side)

When you think of Mexican-style food, you may not picture salad. Let’s change that, shall we?

This green-bean salad works with any Mexican-themed meal. But its mild spicing plays well with other cuisines, too.

Healthy, tasty, versatile. That’s our kind of Mexican hat trick.

Smoky and intriguing – with a bit of bite

Mezcal has attitude. It’s sharper tasting than tequila (a close relative) and carries its smokiness with swagger.

So what happens when you mix mezcal with Campari and sweet vermouth? A Negroni-like cocktail with spellbinding charm.

Deconstructed Fajitas with Grits

Deconstructed Fajitas with Grits

Fajita flavor taken to the next level

Don’t you hate it when your taco falls apart? Just as you’re ready to take a juicy bite, fajita strips and onions land on your lap.

Fortunately, we’ve found a better way. We disassembled this dish and substituted a bed of cheesy, spicy grits for tortilla wraps. Our version of fajitas is easier to make — and even tastier than the original. Not to mention better looking than a lap full of grease.

Take that, gravity.

The Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail

The Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail

A cool and refreshing New Orleans classic

New Orleans is famous for its cocktails. And one of the most beloved is the Ramos Gin Fizz.

Home bartenders rarely make it, though. Mostly because they’ve heard you need to shake it for ages to make it “properly.”

Well, no worries. We can offer some shortcuts that get great results.

Your wrists will thank us.
