Pucker Up! Sweet and Savory Recipes That Use Cranberries

November 25, 2015 1:19 pm

If you thought that cranberries were reserved only for the wintertime, think again! These equally sweet and tart berries taste just as delicious in fall weather recipes, and they can even be turned savory for an unexpected dinnertime treat. Here are just three favorite cranberry recipes to test out this fall.

Pumpkin and Cranberry Crostinis with Maple and Brie [bakeaholicmama.com]
There’s a lot going on in this elegant appetizer, but don’t worry, because it’s all delicious. These crostinis are also much easier to make than you might think, so they’re perfect for a last-minute dinner party or unexpected visit from friends.

Savory Cranberry Sauce [epicurious.com]
While your family’s tried-and-true cranberry sauce is likely sweet and a bit sour, this one brings an unexpected savory taste to the classic side dish. Simply add chopped onion, balsamic vinegar, and a garlic clove to bring a warm, autumnal taste to seasonal cranberries.

Quick Savory Cranberry Glazed Pork Loin Roast [allrecipes.com]
If you’re looking for a way to incorporate cranberries into your main course, this cranberry glazed pork loin is a wonderful choice. The sweet taste of the cranberries balances the salty pork, and best of all, it only takes one hour to make.

Pittsburgh Rick’s: French Fries in Every Sandwich

November 18, 2015 4:52 pm

Rick Allison has been in the restaurant business one way or another for more than 30 years. He cut his teeth in the early '80s alongside his grandmother, who owned a restaurant in Pennsylvania. Together, she and Rick would handcraft pasta, shape burgers, and do everything in between. Rick caught on quickly, which is why he decided to enroll at the Culinary Institute of America and pursue a career in restaurateuring.

At Pittsburgh Rick's, Allison shows off everything he's learned for the people of Leesburg. Many liken the restaurant to Primanti Bros, a well-known sandwich eatery in Pittsburgh. It serves the same Pittsburgh-style sandwiches—that is, sammies stuffed with French fries. Trye the loaded grilled cheese with bacon, the pastrami and cheese, or the butter-poached lobster. They all have fries built right in to the sandwich's structure.
