Lamb Chops with Pistachio Tapenade

Seared for just a few minutes in a hot pan, then spread with a quick, very good tapenade before going in the oven for just 5 minutes, these lamb chops will be on the table in less than a half hour! Throw together a salad, and dinner is served. 

Lily's Beef Stew

This is a simple, hands-off stew, perfect for a chilly fall or winter evening.

Slow Cooked Boeuf Bourguignon

Boeuf Bourguignon relies on slowly building layers of flavor, starting with bacon, then searing the beef in the bacon fat, then deglazing with red wine before the final long, slow simmer to result in a rich and complex dish. It fills your kitchen with the deep, savory scents of beef, red wine, and onions. This particular recipe gives you two options to complete the cooking: either in a slow-cooker, or in the oven. The slow-cooker method will take an additional 4-6 hours, so keep this in mind!

 

Lamb Shanks, Osso Buco-Style

Swapping out full-flavored lamb for the usual mild veal, this is a twist on the classic Italian stew with tomatoes, carrots, and onions. 

Pot Roast with Cranberries

This complex-flavored pot roast with cranberries is rich and warming, with a light sweetness from caramelized sugar and citrus.

 

Steak alla Pizzaiola

Canned crushed tomatoes and fresh herbs make a savory, quick, rustic sauce for steak.

Coconut-Braised Beef

When braised, chuck becomes one of the most tender cuts of meats. This recipe has you brown the meat and then cook at a long, gentle simmer in coconut milk. Whatever you do, don't rush the cooking, or the beef will end up chewy. Try serving this over white rice.

Braised Lamb Shanks with Puréed Root Vegetables

Braised in red wine and broth with aromatics, this lamb dish turns fall-off-the-bone tender. It goes perfectly with the root vegetable purée outlined in this recipe, but would also be nice served alongside creamy polenta, classic mashed potatoes, or wide egg noodles.

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas

Serve this flavorful pork dish on its own, or with chopped cilantro, diced onion, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and refried beans for the ultimate taco night! This makes enough for 20-30 tacos, so you'll have enough to feed a crowd. Carnitas are also a great filling for burritos or tamales.

Individual Pot Roasts with Thyme-Glazed Carrots

Pot roast is typically a weekend dinner, requiring loads of time in the oven. Scented with rosemary and thyme, these delicious, individual-sized ones speed up the process to get dinner on the table in under two hours, most of which is hands-off time on the oven. This makes a great meal on its own, or with some good bread and a salad. 

Roast Pork Sandwich

Made with roasted pork tenderloin, pungent sliced provolone, and spicy, juicy broccoli rabe, this is a seriously good sandwich!

Green Chile Shrimp Enchiladas

Using the packaged skillet sauce this recipe recommends means that you can have a healthy delicious dinner on the table without much work.

Pear and Buckwheat Pancakes

These pancakes are gently scented with pear. For best results, make sure the pears you use are ripe and fragrant.

Apple Pancake

In spite of its name, this is more of a baked custard, redolent with apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

Broccoli and Apple Crunch

This hearty salad is loaded with crunchy, lightly cooked broccoli and dressed in creamy almond vinaigrette.

Roasted Chicken with Cippolini

When roasted, cippolini onions turn sweet and flavorful. Serve this dish with a big green salad and mashed potatoes for a heavenly fall meal.

Quinoa Pasta with Spinach and Tomatoes

If you've been looking for a gluten-free pasta, quinoa pasta should earn a spot on your pantry shelves. It holds it shape, stays firm, and most importantly, tastes great.

Sweet Potato Tempeh Stew

Along with tempeh and sweet potatoes (a perfect pair!), this hearty stew is scented with warming spices and is served garnished with a dollop of yogurt and nutty toasted pumpkin seeds.

Apple Hemp Muffins

High in protein, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, hemp seeds pack a serious nutritional punch.

Roasted Tomatoes and Cipollini

Besides the task of peeling the onions, the oven will do most of the work for you here, bursting and concentrating the tomatoes, and turning the onions silky-sweet and tender.

Heirloom Tomato Salad

Locally-produced Renaissance Farm's Sweet Basil Vinaigrette is great to have in the fridge to make a simple dish special. Delicious over salads, of course, but also nice drizzled on grilled meats or used as a marinade.
