Venison Shank Osso Buco

  I’m pretty sure this post will piss some people off, but I’m not here to please everybody and I reall don’t care. I live in Texas, our family (the family I married into) has a ranch and this is just what people do. The shot was good, the kill was clean and the deer did… Continue reading Venison Shank Osso Buco

Italian Meatloaf

     Mrs. G has been off in Atlanta doing her work thing for the past 8 days. On one of our last conversations, she asked if I would cook up some home cooked food for her return and who could blame her? I like eating out now and again just like everybody else. But 8… Continue reading Italian Meatloaf

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

     It’s not very often I stumble on a recipe (actually Mrs. G stumbled on this one), try it out and immediately think to myself, “I’ve got to share this one with my readers.” See, the thing is we are not real good at following recipes. We’ll use it as a broad outline, maybe change a few… Continue reading Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

     We’re gonna take a step back from BBQ today and go down a little different path…Pasta! This dish holds a very special place in our hearts. It was actually the very first thing I ever cooked for Mrs. G when we were dating. It was also my first attempt at cooking it. I don’t know… Continue reading Farfalle with Italian Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Spaghetti and Meatballs

     Sorry Folks, I don’t have any interesting stories to go along with this post. No story about cute kids calling it “sketti”. No stories about sitting in my Italian Grandmother’s kitchen while she loving prepared her meatballs. In fact, as far as I know, I don’t have any Italian blood in me. But what… Continue reading Spaghetti and Meatballs

Chicken Rosemary

     I’ve kinda been on a slump with my cooking lately (I know you can’t tell by all the recent posts). I just haven’t had much of an appetite lately and nothing sounds good. So when I asked Mrs. G what she wanted for dinner, she suggested chicken rosemary, a dish that has always been… Continue reading Chicken Rosemary

Fire Roasted Shrimp Scampi

     I woke up Sunday morning thinking about seafood. Mussels to be exact. Those black shells glistening in a simmering bath of white wine and butter. I’m not really sure why….I wasn’t hungry…but never the less, I wanted seafood. And then later during the day, it changed from mussels to little neck clams due to… Continue reading Fire Roasted Shrimp Scampi
