Jägerschnitzel for #SundaySupper

This week’s Sunday Supper theme is Retro Recipes.  I was reminded a couple weeks ago about one of my favorite restaurants when I made some German Lentil Soup from Portland Oregon’s Der Rheinlander. The soup was great, but it was missing something. Something I loved to eat as a child – Jägerschnitzel.  It was one of the few ways I would eat mushrooms, the other being on supreme pizza. Jägerschnitzel is [&hellip

Pork Tenderloin with Calvados Cream Sauce

This week’s #SundaySupper is all about apples as we celebrate the beginning of Fall with an Autumn Apple Party. Immersing ourselves into the apple theme we decided to spend Saturday at a couple apple orchards near San Bernadino about a hour and 20 minutes east of Pasadena.  Our first stop was Snow-Line Orchard where the boys watched donuts being made and tried about 15 different types of apples at the [&hellip

Chanterelle Mushroom Cream Linguini

I had a great early afternoon at the Studio City Farmer’s Market today.  Our family had stopped here about a year ago when we were in town visiting family and taking the boys to Disneyland on that trip for their 5th Birthday.  It was one of the things I was most excited about when I thought about living again in Los Angeles. The Studio City Farmers’ Market is full of [&hellip

Mario Batali’s Mint Love Letters

  If you are ever in New York City, I highly recommend Babbo.  It’s an Italian restaurant from celebrity chef Mario Batali.  It’s amazing.  I say Mario is a “celebrity chef” but he is the real deal and is by far my favorite chef. His approach to Italian food that used to be featured in his Food TV Network show Molto Mario, back when Food TV had good shows instead [&hellip

Mushroom Pasta Divine

Since moving from Michigan, I have definitely missed the bounty of fresh pasta I could buy at Ventimiglia Italian Market. Tired of the occasional dry pasta I decided it was time to take action and by action I mean using some of my American Express member reward points to do some Williams Sonoma shopping. A well-reviewed pasta maker kept coming up high in my research. The KitchenAid Pasta Press attachment looked like [&hellip

Grilled Steak with Onion Bleu Cheese Sauce

While grilling a steak with just salt and pepper can be enjoyable, a cheese based sauce can add so much to the meal.  This particular sauce will make you think you are eating at a 5-star restaurant. It is so overtly decadent, yet incredibly simple to make. A sauce with grilled onions, butter, heavy cream and bleu cheese combines to add so much richness to a delicious steak. I can’t [&hellip

Emeril Lagasse’s Steak Diane Compliments of Food & Wine iPad App

My favorite way to cook filet mignon at home is to get a bit adventerous and light some cognac on fire, watch my wife’s head nod in disgust and listen to my kids say “daddy is burning the kitchen.”  Oh well, that’s what home insurance is for, right?  If you are going to catch your home on fire, and let’s hope I never do, doing it by cooking Steak Diane [&hellip
