Barbar’s Granola

Toasty, sweet, crispy, and a hint of tart mixed in, this is Jordan’s favorite granola. Since granola is so expensive, we set-out to make it from scratch, saving about $10 per batch. It’s the perfect granola. [wprm-recipe-jump] [wprm-recipe id="1086"] Quick background about where this recipe came from, and how it’s used When we were first […]

Gramma’s Soup

Oddly satisfying, deceptively simple, and my go-to dinner on exhausted nights when dinner must be made, but I have no oomph left to make it.

Mexican Chorizo

Mexican Chorizo is a Mexican staple. It’s a fatty ground pork made with dried chilies and just a few of the most noteworthy southern spices. Ground coriander (ground cilantro seeds) gives a fragrant and fresh floral tone accented by lime, while the chilies only lend their awesome flavor without the heat of fresh chilies. Included […]

Mexican Breakfast Omelette

Designed to be a bit lighter on the flavor and fatty side for breakfast, I started making this Mexican Breakfast Omelette right after discovering Chorizo. It was a natural fit. Chorizo softened by lean ground beef, eggs, garlic, onions, cheddar, sour cream, salsa… need I say more? [wprm-recipe-jump]   [wprm-recipe id="1064"] Quick background about where […]

Jordan’s Most Totally Amazing Mashed Potatoes

Having a stand-alone recipe for mashed potatoes is a must. No need to slather on the gravy here. Jordan has a distinguished palette, and came-up with this stellar stand-alone one day, and since the proportions of the typical stand-alone ingredients were dead-on, we immortalized them into the Emerson Mashed Potatoes Hall of Fame.

Oven-Roasted Chicken

This recipe is more about the technique of roasting a chicken than the recipe. An ingredients recipe is included, but outside of the chicken itself and the way it’s roasted, everything else is up for interpretation. Your interpretation. What sounds good right now?

Beef & Bean Chili

Hearty and rich, this mildly spicy beef & bean chili is full of fresh veggies and light on the digestion, warming me from head to toe on cold nights. It’s reminiscent of Wendy’s Chili, but heartier and thicker, making it the perfect chili to top a chili-dog, or eat straight from a bowl.  [wprm-recipe-jump]

My perfectly-seasoned Bread Pudding that won’t put you in a sugar coma. I was never one for overly-sweet desserts when I came to America, and this dish was designed to scratch all my Bread Pudding itches without putting my adrenals in crisis. [wprm-recipe-jump]

Zuppa Toscana

Purely from scratch, and better ingredients and proportions make this Zuppa Toscana a creamy, hearty, and robust sausage-potato soup; every bite is perfection. For around 25 years, I’ve been making and tweaking this recipe to make it better, and more like its Olive Garden counterpart.  The result is a flavor that hit the mark and […]

Barb’s Italian Beef Sausage

Since we’re allergic to pork, and so many of our favorite recipes call for sausage, a few years ago I set out to create an Italian beef sausage recipe that hit all my favorite flavor notes. This is it, and it’s my favorite sausage. It’s floral, and I think pretty wonderful. I’m always surprised that […]
