poutine-8

It’s pretty much a given that every weekend I’m watching football and with this Poutine Recipe with Sausage and Pepper Jack Cheese it’s even better.  In fact, I even get sad after the opening weekend because that means I’m one week closer to the season being over, ridiculous, I know… But never-the-less the greatest weekend in all of sports is upon us which means it’s time to pull out the big guns in the food department.     I’m a huge fan of cooking with sausage and not just because I’m Italian.  There are so many delicious sausages out there,…

Pork Saltimbocca Recipe

pork-saltimbocca-8

I used to work in this restaurant where we made veal saltimbocca so feeling a little nostalgic and a little more in love with pig these days, I whipped up this Pork Saltimbocca Recipe! It all starts with the pork of course, so get’em cut thick! Once they are all seasoned up go get out that big ol’ cast iron skillet, spray it up with PAM Original No-Stick Spray and sear’em until they are a perfect golden brown. Next place on a few fresh sage leaves followed up with some prosciutto ham slices and fresh sliced buffalo mozzarella.  From there, they’re…

Pasta-Ragu-15

There is nothing, I mean nothing like homemade pasta.  Sauce just sticks to them better, they are more tender, more flavorful and just DANG ARE THEY GOOD!  I’m sure to some folks it can be really intimidating to make homemade pasta dough, but I promise it really isn’t that bad.  Heck you can even use a Kitchenaid® to roll out the dough for you.  However, I much prefer rolling it out by hand because that way I can gauge when it’s done by the feel of it.  I also think by doing it by hand you get the full feel…

Pork Confit and Split Pea Soup Recipe

split-pea-1

Always enjoy making soup in the fall and winter months.  I also like to change up classics with my own twist, just like in this split pea and pork confit soup recipe.  Obviously the traditional version is ham and split pea, BUT if you’ve never had pork confit that you have no clue what you’ve been missing. Confit is the process of cooking something in it’s own fat.  You can confit just about anything, literally.  You just put the pork tenderloin right in a pot with veggies, herbs and olive oil and pop it in the oven on 300° for…
