    CRISPY PARMESAN PORK CHOPS

    CRISPY PARMESAN PORK CHOPS

    Other than my RESTAURANT-QUALITY BBQ RIBS (recipe for which can also be found on my Vocal posts), I have to admit - pork is one protein I never had much confidence cooking.

    Six and a half years ago, my boyfriend made these ribs the first time he and I ever cooked dinner together while we were first dating.

    COPYCAT CHIPOTLE CHICKEN BURRITO BOWLS

    Unlike most people, I was a little late to the Chipotle Party. Chipotle had been around and popular for at least a year or two before I finally had my first experience.

    Baking Millionaire’s Shortbread

    Working at the restaurant, I was brainstorming ideas for new cookies to add to our petit fours plate. We offered a complimentary cookie platter at the end of the meal as a “thank you” to our guests to round out their luxurious, Italian dining experience.

    ULTIMATE FUDGE BROWNIES

    ULTIMATE FUDGE BROWNIES

    When I say that this is the only brownie recipe you’ll ever need for the rest of your life, I’m really not kidding. So decadent and custard-like, I’m not even entirely sure I understand the physics behind how the near-liquid fudge suspends its shape as you lift a gooey square to your awaiting lips. Still don’t believe me? I dare you to bake them just once and not fall head-over-heels in love.
