Grilled Tri-Tip Roast

We here at Cuisine Capers know our cuts of meat. We encounter them often. So we don’t take it lightly when we announce that we’ve now named the tri-tip roast the perfect cut of grilling beef available.

Bolognese Carbonara

May 11, 2008

Bolognese alla Carbonara Bucatini I’m not too sure what to call this recipe, for it is not a traditional bolognese, and it is certainly not a traditional carbonara.  On the other hand, it combines elements of both of these dishes into a hearty, satisfying pasta fitting for Sunday dinner. I start with a base of good quality Italian Sausage, […]

Giada De Laurentiis Strikes Again

Orechiette with Sausage, Beans, and Mascarpone

Orechiette with Sausage, Beans, and Mascarpone There are few episodes of “Everyday Italian” that I watch that do not inspire me to make something… immediately.  We affectionately call Giada the “Skinny Italian Chick” around these parts.  We watch her Food Network show, get really hungry, and refuse to believe that she eats more than the […]

The Best Roast Beef… Ever.

October 29, 2007
Sirloin Tip Roast

I’ve made a beef roast or two in my time.  My repertoire ranges from a quick yet elegant tenderloin to an extremely slow roasted brisket, braised in a tangy liquidy base. This weekend I was in the mood for a slow roasted cut of beef.  Not a stringier brisket, and yet not a fattier prime […]

Gorgonzola Galore

May 16, 2007

Gorgonzola has rapidly become one of our favorite cheeses. We cook with it, we eat it after dinner as a cheese course with wine or port, and we always have it on hand. Much of the reason for this is because we are fortunate enough to live close to one of the top Gorgonzola producers, […]

Penne with Grilled Beef and Arugula

August 24, 2006

Penne with Grilled Beef and Arugula One of the shows that I still try to catch on Food TV is Everyday Italian. It never fails that something is prepared on that show that is sure to make me very hungry. We sit and watch it on Saturday mornings, and comment on the fact that “the […]

Braciole with Farfalle It’s always a dilemma when a holiday like Valentine’s Day comes along. The desire to make a special meal is strong, but on the other hand, we make so many “special” meals routinely that it’s really hard to come up with something truly special. We discussed it a bit, and actually came […]

Beef Brisket

December 5, 2004

We’ve pretty much gotten settled down into our new house. Time to get back down to cooking! Dinner tonight was a beef brisket. It’s a great meal to make when you want to slow cook your dinner. I brown the brisket in the pot, take it out, add onion, garlic and a bit of tomato […]

First Dinner In The New House

November 27, 2004

Well, it wasn’t really the first dinner we prepared in the new house, but it was the first “real” dinner we prepared. We had decided we were going to celebrate the move in style, and so we prepared a special meal, accompanied by special wines. On the menu was a tenderloin with a red wine […]

Carbonara and Bruschetta

June 9, 2004

This was no low carb meal. Oh, no. This meal was carbs in all their splendor. Pasta Carbonara is one of our favorite dishes. It is a pasta treatment that is practically impossible to find locally in restaurants, and even more impossible to find done well. Our most memorable Carbonara was found in a small, […]
