Chili in a Whole Grain Bread Bowl

Sometimes we get carried away at Super Bowl – tons of junk food with too much salt and too many preservatives and stuff.  We had a smaller group this year so we kept it simple while preserving one of  the great traditional values – chili con carne. (more…)

Two Great Ideas for Super Bowl Sunday February 4, 2012

You may need something for Super Bowl Sunday – a dish or an appetizer to enjoy during the game or take to a party.  Check either of these recent posts – they’re perfect.

Bravado Mac & Cheese:  You may have to run to the store to get the ingredients, but it is easy to make and the crowd will go wild.   If you are taking it to a party, prepare everything and put it in the oven when you get where you are going.

Cilantro Pesto on Crostini:  If you don’t have the energy to make the Bravado Mac & Cheese, try this one instead.  Ingredients will cost you about four dollars – two bunches of cilantro and one baguette and you can make it in under 30 minutes.

Guest Post No. 2:

Horseradish Encrusted Prime Rib

The Annual New Year’s Dinner Award goes to Howard Storck – charter member of the Bravado Cooking Society – and Carla Gorsky.  (They, btw, were the ones that triggered the special post about making a one-handed pie crust – a must see with the video clip from “The Postman Always Rings Twice”.)  They were helped by sous-chef Larry Hake and their dog, Charlie.

Boy, Did I Like The Prime Rib – Hope I Can Make It Until Midnight!

Here is Howard’s communiqué:

How about a horseradish encrusted prime rib…with a red wine reduction sauce…homemade creme fraiche….roasted potatoes and onions with sage…and roasted vegetables? (more…)

Thanksgiving is Bravado November 26, 2011

Bravado cooking is all about making classic dishes from scratch, getting everyone involved and making a big show of the whole thing.  If that isn’t Thanksgiving, I don’t know what is.  Everyone has a special recipe that they’re proud of, and no one would think of buying something made in the store or supermarket.  There is plenty of time so no one is thinking of 30 minute meals.

The highlight of our day was getting the children involved.  Check out the kids peeling potatoes.
