Chicken Pot Pie
Making your own crust takes this pot pie to the next level.

Italian Wedding Soup
This is the kind of soup that can actually be a main meal.
Roasted Corned Beef and Cabbage with Carrots, Potatoes & Horseradish Cream Sauce
Corned beef isn’t just for St. Paddy’s Day! While most recipes call for boiling the meat and veggies, the key here is slow-roasting the meat and horseradish-butter spiked vegetables separately in the oven. The corned beef comes out tender and flavorful, and the bronzed veggies are impossible to resist eating straight from the pan.
Beef Stew with Carrots & Potatoes
In this classic French beef stew, chunks of beef are seared in olive oil and then braised with garlic and onions in a wine-based broth. After a few hours in the oven, the meat becomes meltingly tender and enveloped in a rich, deeply-flavored sauce.
