New Year’s Tenderloin Bruschetta

I’m calling this recipe New Year’s Tenderloin Bruschetta (a) because I made it as a New Year’s Eve accompaniment to a veritable bacchanal of premium caviar and Russian vodka shots, and (b) because I made my recipe, Marinated Tenderloin of Beef with Sauce Béarnaise for Christmas and had a fair amount of leftover tenderloin that

Meatloaf in a Minute

Minus the chopping, it will take you all of a minute to put this meatloaf together and one hour to cook.  I was charged with putting together a dinner very quickly and used what I had on hand.  To be sure, this isn’t my signature meatloaf recipe, with a lattice of bacon or a pancetta

Kicked Up Meatloaf with Mac and Cheese

In the preceding post, I included a recipe for Boursin Macaroni & Cheese.  It was great, fit the bill for the evening I had planned, but was not to be repeated on this occasion.  This was not just about Mac & Cheese.  This was about the totality of a Comfort Food Dinner.  After a grueling

Crock Pot Beef Stew

This kind of cooking doesn’t get any easier.  Simply put all these ingredients together in a crock pot, set it on “high” for six hours, and you’re good to go.  The secret to a delicious stew is in not using the cuts of beef typically sold at your grocery store as “stew meat.”  These are

Roasted Beef Short Ribs

I love short ribs.  They are a very rich, special dish that can be prepared in a variety of ways.  Here are links to ones I’ve created: All of these recipes have one thing in common:  they are all cooked in liquid, or “braised” using culinary terminology.  Some of these recipes also call for two

Easy Crock-Pot Short Ribs

I did a Slow Cooked Beef Short Rib recipe which was modified from a recipe found on the Pioneer Woman website.  It was great, I stand by it, and I’ll make it again some day.  But not yesterday.  I just didn’t want the hassle of using three different cooking vessels to make short ribs.  I

Low Carb Beef Stir Fry

You can easily carb this up by serving it over rice, but on its own, this is a pretty delicious and healthful dish.  Truth be told, my Number One Fan had several “Reduced For Quick Sale” cuts of beef in the freezer, which was very frugal of her, but she had no plan to prepare

Versatile Italian Meatballs

Inspiration for this dish came from the South Your Mouth website, but with some modifications, as any reader of the Kitchen Tapestry should come to expect.  My Number One Fan gets all the credit for finding, modifying and preparing this really great version of the classic Italian meatball. I labeled this “Versatile” for a reason. 

Braised Short Ribs

This another short rib recipe from the Pioneer Woman website.  Short Ribs are good dinner fare; the aroma of them simmering away in a rich broth, filling the house on a lazy Sunday afternoon is the stuff of culinary legend.  I’ve adapted several short rib recipes into my Kitchen Tapestry, including Beef Short Ribs &

Swedish Meatballs

I’ve had versions of this dish over the years generally as an hors d’oeuvres at a cheap happy hour buffet somewhere, along with miniature egg rolls and those little cocktail sausages in barbecue sauce.  They were prefabricated and plastic, and just damned awful if not good for soaking up alcohol.  This recipe is nothing like

Shepherd’s Pie

In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, I decided to try my hand at making Shepherd’s Pie.  Normally for St. Pat’s day, I would do my version of Corned Beef & Cabbage for this non-holiday holiday (recipes here: Roasted Corned Beef Brisket with Mustard Sauce; Fried Cabbage with Caraway), but I made those dishes just a

Sloppy Joe Stuffed Bell Peppers

I have no idea where I got this recipe, but I’ve had it filed away for some time.  Stuffed bell peppers were a staple on our table when I was growing up.  I suspect that was because bell peppers were cheap and my dad even grew them in our backyard garden in the summer.  The
