Red Wine Braised Pot Roast

I feel like I’m constantly multi-tasking, so I love recipes where the oven does most of the work for me. Words can’t even describe how good this beef is – the red wine adds a wonderful depth of flavor and provides a perfect pan sauce for the beef. I served ours with celery root puree, Red Wine Braised Pot Roast

Cherry Burgers with Goat Cheese Pesto

It’s cherry season and that means it’s time to scoop some up from the farmers market and grocery store while they are at their sweetest.

The goat cheese and basil pesto helps to compliment the burger by adding another Cherry Burgers with Goat Cheese Pesto

Beef Empanadas with Avocado Lime Crema

I love any appetizer that is bite-sized because it’s great for serving guests without being messy. These beef empanadas pack so much flavor thanks to all the spices in the beef mixture. And the avocado dipping sauce is one of my favorites – it’s also really good on tacos, grilled fish and crab cakes. Serve Beef Empanadas with Avocado Lime Crema

Meatballs are always a client favorite. With the Super Bowl right around the corner, these would be the perfect appetizer to bring to your party.
