Birthday Round Up: Patricks's Picks!

Today's a special day... it's my husband's 40th birthday and so I'm dedicating this post to highlight some of his favorite dishes! He selected these specific recipes because they have been highly requested at our kitchen table... and believes you'll like them too. So in honor of him on his big 4-0 birthday, here are Patrick's Picks, from our table to yours!

Beer Braised Corned Beef Brisket

A beef brisket is slow cooked with broth, spices and aromatics until tender and sliced across the grain for serving. Get some bread ready for leftovers, that is if there are any!...



Juicy Lucy Burgers & the World's Easiest French Fries

These burgers had a delicious cheesy surprise in the middle that will have any cheeseburger fan raving. Even better was pairing them with the World's Easiest French Fries!



Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri

This Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri Sauce is one way to prepare steaks and simply incorporating fresh herbs...



Baby Back Ribs

If you're looking for lip-smacking, finger-licking good ribs, just like the Chili's commercial (only better!), these Baby Back Ribs will have you singing in no time!



Smoky Shrimp & Chicken Gumbo

A rich shrimp stock makes for a wonderful base to build a classic Cajun gumbo full of flavor with chicken, Andouille sausage and the 'trinity' of onions, bell peppers and celery...



Garlic & Prime Rib Roast

If you love garlic, you'll love the flavor and aroma while this bakes up in your oven.




Chicken & Chorizo Paella

Full of colorful vegetables, tender chicken, and spicy chorizo tossed in a bed of seasoned rice, the only accompaniment you'll probably need is a crisp green salad.



Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Parfait

Beautifully layered in a martini glass, the smooth and creamy mousse
is heavenly decadent and rich...



Unfried Ice Cream

It's cool, creamy, crunchy, and sweet with a touch of spice... 
and perfect for any celebration, including birthdays!



Best Ever Yellow Butter Cake

It was a buttery cake with a tender crumb, adorned with 
colorful sprinkles atop creamy, glorious chocolate frosting...
