Impressive Dishes

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.

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.

Ricotta-Stuffed Pannetone French Toast with Grand Marnier Syrup

There’s a time and a place for the abomination that is fruitcake, and that’s when you’re dead. Into my cold, dead, beautifully manicured hands, that’s when I want someone to hand me a fucking fruit cake. I don’t care how much booze is in that damn cake – it’s not enough.

Profiteroles with Tahitian Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

What marketing genius designated January 2 National Cream Puff Day? Does this person still believe in unicorns too? I mean, half the world hasn’t recovered from the holidays where you DO actually eat cream puffs (and unicorns) and the other half of the world doesn’t need a special day for cream puffs.
