Stuffed Pork Chops – Food Wishes

From Food Wishes. I’ve never been a big fan of stuffing steaks and chops, since it makes the cut of meat trickery to cook, and the stuffing is almost always better cooked separately, and served alongside. But, I make an exception when it comes to these double-cut pork chops, especially when they’re being flavored from…

Salmon Medallions – Food Wishes

However, sometimes we end up with the much thinner tail piece, and when that happens, this medallion technique will save…

Whole Plum Tart (FAIL) – Food Wishes

Antipasto Pasta Salad – Food Wishes

If you’re a fan of garlic shrimp, this Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp Scampi recipe is an absolute “must try.” The procedure is very simple, but you will have to decide whether to do them the traditional way, with the shells on for max flavor, or the more “user-friendly” way, with the shells off.…

Garlic Scape Pesto – Food Wishes

From Food Wishes. I’ve been wanting to do some extra "quick and dirty" bonus videos on the channel, and this garlic scape pesto is an experiment in doing just that. Besides them being shorter, they also contain no "You’re the…" rhyme, or any "That’s right!" in the intro. Regardless, I hope you enjoy this great…
