Lamb loin chops may seem fancy, but they're super easy to cook in a single pan. Just sear, roast, and rest for juicy perfection.
Easy Philly Cheesesteaks
Philly cheesesteaks are delicious but divisive. This easy version has thin-sliced rib eye, sautéed peppers, onions, and optional mushrooms, and Provolone (sorry, Whiz fans).
Authentic Black Bean Recipe by Gregory
Perfectly tender and deeply seasoned with garlic, onions, peppers, and bay leaf, these authentic black beans take a while to cook, but are totally worth it.
Three Cheese Mac and Cheese with Panko Bread Crumb Topping
This three cheese mac and cheese with Cheddar, Asiago, and Romano is creamy, gooey, gloriously cheesy, and beautifully crisp on top thanks to the panko bread crumbs.
Cornbread is a Southern staple, and a must with chili. This version is moist all the way through, with a lightly crisped top and a touch of sweetness. Mix in cheese or jalapeños for extra flavor, and feel free to bake as muffins if you prefer.
Sauteed Calamari with Parsley and Garlic
