Roasted Leg of Lamb



Leg of Lamb is a very traditional Easter meal. Though it is fabulous at any time—our Ravensview Rosemary Garlic is a perfect complement to the lamb, really enhancing the delicate luscious flavors! Hand blended from cracked black pepper, rosemary, roasted garlic flakes, chives and sea salt.


This recipe is super simple to make. Lamb can seem overwhelming and difficult to make, but we promise, it is not. Roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus is a great accompaniment for this dinner. We used Herbes de Provence to season the potatoes.  


While the lamb is resting, there is a Popover biscuit recipe to make to round out your meal. We used a little Wordhouse Wow to add flavor to the popovers, the tarragon in this blend is fantastic.


We hope you enjoy!

Ravensview Garlic Instant Pot Beef Stew


The Instant Pot is another of my new favorite tools for the kitchen. The Instant Pot infuses an amazing amount of flavor into what you are cooking.  This is a very basic Beef Stew, it is amazing how a few ingredients can come together to taste soo good!


Today I made a Beef Stew with a Ravensview Rosemary Garlic blend. It is hand blended from black pepper, sea salt, black pepper, garlic, onion, chives and rosemary. It is fantastic for lamb and other red meats. Great on beef and pork ribs and roasts. We use it on roasted potatoes and other veggies too. 


This dish takes a little over two hours to make, but the time is well worth the wait! You might think, it's a pressure cooker won't it cook faster? The point here is that cooking it this amount of time makes the meat incredibly tender!


I served this fabulous Beef Stew over mashed potatoes. Very delish and healthy too!


A glass of Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect complement to this dish.

Sunday Sauce with Meatballs


Sunday sauce (or gravy as some call it) is a long standing Italian-American tradition. In Italy many years ago, very poor Italian women made their sauce mostly with tomatoes and vegetables and if they were very lucky pork. After immigrating to America most found that meat here was so much less expensive, and the addition of beef to the sauce became a symbol of prosperity! 


Italian Mama’s and Nona’s put the sauce on first thing in the morning and it puttered all day while the rest of the family chatted and caught up. Each family adds a little something unique to their sauce so really no two family recipes would be the same.


I used Evening in Tuscany because the delicate blend of garlic, Kosher salt, Mediterranean oregano, basil, crushed red pepper, black pepper, rosemary, onion and parleys perfect for a Sunday Sauce!


There are many varieties of pasta available to us today. Spaghetti is traditionally used, but any shape you like will work.


Today, most families are too busy to be cooking all day! This is a quicker version of a Sunday Sauce. Though tradition has it that it only gets richer the longer it simmers.


Mangia! Mangia! (eat, eat!)

Cuban Pressed Sandwich



I have found a sandwich that is beyond delicious! The pressed Cubano Sandwich has evolved into a sophisticated blend of flavors that dance on your tongue! Adobo Lime rubbed pork tenderloin, ham, swiss cheese and Quick Pickles on a french roll and pressed to perfection.


Adobo Lime is hand blended from fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary. This spice blend is amazing on pork, chicken, veggies, salmon and shrimp. One of my personal favorites!


This recipe includes another recipe for Quick Pickles. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP! These pickles make the sandwich a 15 instead of an 10! Super easy and truly quick! I used Devils Dust (but you can use red pepper flakes too) to spice it. Remember that as the name implies, a little bit goes a long way! For the lovers of SPICY HOT this blend is amazing! Ghost pepper, jalapeno and habanero flakes come together in this fiery mix.


A cold mug of Hatuey Beer pairs perfectly with this sandwich!

Slow Cooker Beef Brisket

Recipe courtesy of Pat Bafile, P. B. Photo/Graphics.

Brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef or veal. It is usually sold boneless. Because brisket is a tough cut of meat, it's best when braised (that is, simmered in a small amount 
of liquid), either in the oven, the slow cooker, or on the stove top. Two different cuts of brisket are available. The beef brisket is one of the nine beef primal cuts, though the precise definition of the 
cut differs internationally. The meat must be cooked correctly to achieve a tender result.

Passover Brisket


I think there is nothing more fun than to travel the world and different cultures by cooking their foods. Today I really wanted to taste a Passover Brisket. I have many Hebrew/Jewish friends and this is a compilation of what they described to me.


What is there not to love about a yummy beef brisket? Especially when you season it with Mark’s Espresso Rub II. The deep richness of coffee combined with the brown sugar provides an ideal caramelized crust on your steak. Got a little kick! DELICIOUS on beef ribs! Ancho chile powder, ground espresso beans, Spanish paprika, brown sugar, yellow mustard, sea salt, black pepper, Mexican oregano, coriander, ginger root and chile de arbol powder.


I served this with a Potato Kugel Casserole.  


A glass of Merlot paired very well with his meal.
