« Black Bean Soup (make this and dinner's ready by lunchtime) | Main | "Steakhouse" Salad: Tomatoes, Sweet Onions, and Blue Cheese »



Sounds delicious. I have the same problem with wine, but I freezer the leftover wine in small containers so I have a bit to add to sauces and things. Works great.


Ok, that should say freeze the wine, not freezer the wine!


Love love love this. Is great for fall.


Delicious. I should make some soon...my nearly 3 year old loves the tender beef in stews and pot roasts.

I am the same way when it comes to wine. I only drink one glass. Unfortunately my husband finishes the rest so we rarely have leftovers!


I just recently started reading (and drooling over) your posts - what a gorgeous blog you have!

Thanks so much for the great recipe for Black Bean Soup - it was perfect for the weather 'round here last weekend.

This sounds wonderful, even if I have to open a new bottle of wine!


Wow, we don't have that problem with wine in our house. Even if I did have any leftover, I bet I would drink it all while I was browning the beef. But this looks so good and I know my husband would love it.

How long can you keep Julia Childs' boeuf bourguignon in the refrigerator before it will spoil? We are making it now on Thursday evening and will be serving it on Sunday. We do NOT want to freeze it now, and then thaw it because we feel that the freezing and thawing process will render it not as tasty as if we keep it in refrigerator to serve on Sunday. Will it spoil if we keep it that long before serving?

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
