Brunch Lunch Menus

Winter Saturday Lunch at Home

In the heart of the winter when there is pending snow almost every day, Saturday lunches can be break in the cold monotony of long cold weeks…here are some ideas for a fun afternoon of food and wine:

Lamb & Clams

Clams are always an easy dish, and I prefer them to mussels – they’re smaller, have better texture and far tastier. A while back, I was making my Greek version of chili using ground lamb and other Mediterranean ingredients. I found myself grilling some clams and ladling the Greek chili on top to serve asContinue Reading

Spatchcock Lemon Rosemary Chicken

If you ever stumble upon one of my favorite restaurants, Le Petit Maison, be sure to pop in and order their lemon chicken – as well as just about everything their legendary chef, Raphael, has on the menu. You can find his spots in London, Dubai, Beirut, and Miami. The original is in Nice andContinue Reading

Lamb Hummus Bruschetta

Notes from the road… As everyone knows, our firm does most of our work overseas for our US and international clients.  Since most of work is communications on global issues, coverage of most matters is spread throughout the world, not just with our friends in D.C.  So we pack our bags and off we go.Continue Reading

Lamb Chili

I love chili, but not to the extent that it deserves half a day of work and 50 ingredients, some of which must come from specialty stores.  So this is an easy, tasty and different take on Chili that brings Tex-Mex and Greek cooking to a crossroads. Serves 8 people Ingredients 2 cups red onions,Continue Reading

The Simple Cheeseburger

I have to admit that I did indeed get caught up in the burger craziness– with double, triple burgers, all kinds of ingredients mixed in…it just did not stop.  Big burgers, mini burgers, the option were and are endless. We have created some ourselves: Boursin Burger Mini Cheddar Bacon Burgers Herbed Chicken Burgers with CilantroContinue Reading

Herbed Mustard Shrimp

This is the best and easiest grilled shrimp recipe that friends will love to get after. You can make this as a main dish or serve as appetizers. Set aside some extra grated Parmesan, red pepper flakes, olive oil, and chopped dill to sprinkle on top before serving. Ingredients 2 pounds peeled and deveined shrimpContinue Reading

The “Morton’s” Steak Sandwich

When we were interns and wanted a big night out on the town, we would make our way from Georgetown University summer housing (we were squatters, not students) to Morton’s for happy hour. We’d have enough money for two glasses of wine, but the bartender would bring out complimentary steak sandwiches which we would devourContinue Reading

LPB Fried Chicken

When’s the last time you walked into a dinner party and heard the sizzling of chicken frying in the kitchen?  LPB’s able Housetern Jack helped perfect this easy-to-make fried chicken.  It’s great for either an entree or an appetizer, using only legs and wings. Ingredients  4 – 6 pounds of chicken parts (legs, wings, breasts…whateverContinue Reading

Fudge, Cream Cheese & Butterscotch Fudge Brownies

A few weeks ago we created one of our favorite cookies, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies which then led to Ice Cream Sandwiches, both delicious desserts.  Someone then asked if we could make some brownies for a day party and I thought back to growing up and the cream cheese that would be mixed into brownies to bring themContinue Reading
