This is slow cooking without the slow cooker.
We love veal and love that it can be simmered gently on the stove-top for an hour and be falling-apart, fork tender.
And, yes, I know I’ve said it before but in order to stave off the nasty comments I’ll say it again:
The veal that we get is from local farms … Continue reading.....
The first time I made stuffed mushrooms they were filled with bacon and cream cheese.
That was the way I made them the 2nd through gazillionth time, too.

This recipe wraps up my personal slow … Continue reading.....
