Dinner Party Recipe: Braised Shredded Beef in Tomatoes & Red Wine
When I think about throwing a dinner party, especially a big one like this polenta supper I’m sharing with you this week, my thoughts immediately go to: What can I make ahead? Last week, I had an easy answer: a shredded, succulent mess of beef braised in red wine and tomatoes, falling apart in its juices. It’s a terrific make-ahead dish, since like most braises, this beef gets better overnight, and takes all the stress of a main dish off your hands entirely. Sound good?

Recipe: Breakfast Pizza
Breakfast pizza — have you ever tried it? No, this is not cold pizza from the fridge on a Saturday morning (not that there’s anything wrong with that either!).

Saturday morning we were crunched for time but we needed to put a hot breakfast on the table; it was a long day and fruit and toast wouldn’t do.

We would like a plate of this right now please!
