Beef and Butternut Squash Stew

January 25, 2008

Whole Foods meats are the ultimate in food porn. When I opened up my bag of stew beef I almost swooned. No wonder everything costs $200 a pound there. It’s gorgeous! The ruby red cubes were almost too pretty to put into a messy stew, but let’s be realistic people — a girl has to […]

Mushroom Stroganoff

January 8, 2008

I don’t know about the rest of you, but after spending the last few weeks literally gorging myself on wine, cheese, chocolate, more wine, dip, crackers, wine again, and then some beer I’m starting to feel like I need to promptly go to a spa, a yoga retreat, the gym, and possibly rehab. So to […]

Erin Cooks The Internet: November 28, 2007

Disappointingly I’ve only managed to purchase two gifts for family members so far this holiday season and they were gift cards.

Cowboy Steak and Garlic Fries

March 17, 2007

I made a phenomenal steak the other day for Chris and Anna and now I’m a huge fan of the “rub.” The rub I’m gushing over actually consisted of chili powder, coriander, mustard, brown sugar, espresso and salt & pepper — who knew such an odd assortment of flavors could taste so incredibly amazing!

Ellie Krieger’s Triple Chocolate Cookies

January 28, 2007

Confession time: I am having way too much fun with my new pink KitchenAid and I’m happy to report that Ellie Krieger’s (surprise! surprise!)
