A list of all the recipes Pat Francis has tested.
Sticky Pecan Bites
These one-bite indulgences, mini-sticky rolls of sorts, are the fastest way we can think to get a caramel-y, buttery, nutty sticky bun fix. Are you in?
Sugo di Pomodoro ~ Authentic Italian Tomato Sauce
“Simple, quick, and delicious.” “Elegant.” “It sure as heck is good.” That’s what folks are saying about this easy weeknight supper.
One-Pot Spaghetti and Meat Sauce
A meal that requires just one pot, pleases everyone at the table, and uses up leftovers? Yes, please!

Seriously, it’s so easy to make your own sausage. Insanely easy. And holy heck, does it taste phenomenal. No meat grinder required.
Christmas Eve Calamari
The much-ballyhooed Italian Christmas classic, Feast of the Seven Fishes, stars one fish in Domenica Marchetti’s home. Calamari. And it’s the centerpiece of her Christmas Eve dinner.
Pork Loin Roast
Just like what your grandma would put on the table for Sunday night dinner. (Don’t you love how food instantly transports you through time?!)

Watermelon Moscow Mule
If you’re a fan of the classic mule, made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime, then you’re gonna love the addition of fresh watermelon and mint to it.

A ginormous, warm, gooey, chocolatey cookie baked in a single skillet so there’s no waiting for batch after batch to come out of the oven.
