Lemon Parmesan Asparagus


Asparagus is in season! Yay! I have another tasty recipe for you that got lot's of good reviews at our Easter dinner. Very easy to prepare ahead.

Lemon Parmesan Asparagus

1 lb asparagus
2 T. olive oil
zest of one lemon
1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 425 F degrees

Place prepared asparagus on a large baking sheet, lined with parchment paper or a silpat. Drizzle with olive oil and toss until asparagus is coated.



Sprinkle lemon zest over the asparagus, then top with half the cheese.

Roast for 5-8 minutes or until it begins to sizzle.

Top with remaining cheese.

Saturday night was the annual Easter weekend dance at Outlaw clubhouse on property. Mogollan plays every year and pretty mush everyone comes dressed in their western clothes. We hosted our daughter, son in law, his parents and our grandchildren for this fun event!

Irish Lamb Stew

  

What could be more delicious than a bowl of heart warming Irish Stew? This is the favorite in Ireland and is loved all over the world! Irish stew is traditionally made with mutton (older sheep) but, nowadays, it is made more often with lamb....may seem like a waste but the flavor is amazing.

Bolognese Sauce


This sauce is the best sauce I have ever tasted! It is worth every minute! The layers of delicious flavor will delight your palate! I like to double the recipe and freeze in increments that we know we will use.

Making this very authentic Italian sauce is easy and requires no special skills. I perfected this bolognese sauce over several years. Adding this, taking out that. The end result is stunning and miles away from that awful tomato sauce from a jar.

This traditional spaghetti bolognese is a real winner. Your family will thank you for it!

Cambozola Tarts




Blue cheese is one of Wee Bears favorite cheeses, he loves a couple tablespoons crumbles on his salad. He loves blue cheese on his hamburger.....he loves it! It is a cheese you love or hate! So, here comes a milder version. Cambozola has a particular mildness similar to a buttery triple creme or a brie. Cambozola is a combination of Camembert style cheese and Gorgonzola.  You sort of get half of each! You get a delicious mushroomy brie quality- it has delicious pockets of blue cheese, tiny little pockets....perfect for introducing someone to the world of "Blue".

Instant Pot Baby Back Ribs





My mouth is watering as I sit finishing up this blog just in time for Super Bowl. I made these delicious baby back ribs a few months ago for football season. They are so delicious! Of course so tender because, as in my previous rib recipe, Baby Back Ribs, I used the instant pot. So much quicker than the oven or boiling method. The sauce contains a Hoisin sauce, similar flavors as in the  Asian Style Flankin Ribs  I made a year ago. You won't be disappointed, these are KILLER!

Pork Piroshki




Pork Piroshki is a sure hit for any occasion!  The herbed pork filling wrapped in a cream cheese pastry is a one, two punch! These can be made ahead and frozen for 3 months. Just pop a few out when company comes, or when you just want a simple salad and some quick appies for dinner! I have been baking these for years and quite frankly do not know how they haven't made it to the blog until now! Just in time for Superbowl and Valentines day! This is my absolute favorite appetizer!
