Food You Wish You Had the $$ to Cook

Warm Spiced Apple Punch

This sugary, candied apple gets its bite from whiskey and fire from cloves and ginger, a scintillating concoction that’ll help get you hot and ready for any trouble coming your way. Lose the skivvies quick, because this punch literally feels like rolling around naked on a bearskin rug in a rugged mountain lodge.

Spiced Beef Tenderloin with Chipotle Hollandaise

Make this spiced beef tenderloin with pork if you like. When you rub chipotle hollandaise all over the place, it doesn’t matter what protein you invite to be the star of the show. Everyone will be coming. Repeatedly.

Happy Belated Birthday Mel with Dirty Girl’s Fried Oysters Rockefeller

What happens when you make a crisp from parmesan and top with crispy pancetta, creamed spinach and a fried oyster? A fucking celebration! It was Mel’s birthday on the 18th (of the amazingly tasty food blog Edible Things) and because we need to make it up to her that we were fucking sloshed on the actual day AND she is all about the oyster, I’ve got those bitchin’ bivalves on my mind.

Bacon, Leek and Raclette Tarte with Frisée Salad

Kick up your ho hum quiche with creamy raclette cheese, crisp bacon and slow-cooked leeks for a tart that is so good, you’ll want to break all the rules and make out hard core. Plus, the accompanying frisée salad screams three way – do we see a deliciously dirty menage a trois in your future? Yes, we do.

Easy Sleazy Coq au Vin

Our coq is easy and tasty, leaving you plenty of time to putter around the kitchen getting tipsy before it’s time to dig in. Nothing better than this easy-sleazy, as we take Julia Child’s classic version of coq au vin and pare it down for simple midweek cooking.

Pancetta Wrapped Turkey Breast with Morel Mushroom Stuffing and Truffled Mashed Potatoes

To celebrate National Bird Day (I kid you not), this recipe, my darling readers, is for the dirtiest of birdies. And I don’t say that in jest – with the combination of crispy bacon imbuing all of its salty goodness into a gloriously moist turkey breast and lux morel mushroom stuffing to gild the lily, you have no excuse but to love the proverbial shit out of this one.
