  • Sailor's Meatballs

    Sailor's Meatballs

    Pure comfort food that can be modified for meatless diets without sacrificing rich umami flavors. If you have time, mix and form meatballs a few hours ahead of time and chill in the fridge.  They will firm up nicely and be easier to handle in the pan. Alternatively, as a healthier and less messy option, you can freeze the meatballs and cook them in an air fryer, but you'll be sacrificing some depth in your sauce.

  • Bobbie's Best Cheese Straws

    Bobbie's Best Cheese Straws

    I hesitated on creating this recipe since using store-bought puff pastry goes against my "make it as complicated as can be" mentality around baking.  But not only are they easy to make, they are too good not to share .  Keep puff pastry in your freezer with the knowledge that you can create a showstopper in less than 25 minutes!

  • Pantry-Raid Linguini and Clam Sauce

    Pantry-Raid Linguini and Clam Sauce

    When it comes to making a stellar and low-maintenance pasta,  Bobbie's Boat Sauce creates a deeply flavored pan sauce that is much more than the sum of its parts.   I recommend the Marirara editions in a traditional and fast preparation of a pantry linguine and clam sauce, but the OG Boat Sauces will work here too.  Amounts are approximate, to accommodate your own tastes.

  • "Mom's Meatloaf" aka Bobbie's Boat Loaf

    "Mom's Meatloaf" aka Bobbie's Boat Loaf

    Though I'm sure there are people out there who don't like meatloaf, I still have yet to meet anyone who doesn't hold a candle for this comfort classic.  And like nothing tastes as good as the water you grew up with, so goes for meatloaf recipes...that is until you put your own spin on it.  I present to you my mom's recipe, with an umami infusion of both mushroom powder and Bobbie's Boat Sauce.

  • Zucchini Pancakes

    Zucchini Pancakes

    Is it really basic to say that zucchini is my favorite seasonal vegetable?  Maybe just because it's such a great vehicle for my favorite flavors, but I look forward to bumper crops from my CSA, and my neighbors, and it just occurred to me to start trolling Nextdoor for zucchini offers. 

    After scanning dozens of recipes and spending weeks trying out different techniques and finally landed on that makes me proud.  These are protein packed, yet light, and versatile : omit or change up the cheese, change the herbs, use yellow squash instead of zucchini.  I really like these with Bobbie's Marinara, but OG Boat Sauce is great too.  And as a leftover fetishist, I almost like them better the next day!

  • Grilled Flank Steak Bobbie Cauda

    Grilled Flank Steak Bobbie Cauda

    I am a lifelong lover of anchovies, and the Italian dish Bagna cauda, or hot bath, is one of the most decadent things you can do with some raw, fresh vegetables.  It's also a great preparation for everything from steaks to seafood to pasta, but I had the idea to turn the major components into a marinade for flank steak.  But instead of using anchovies, I reached for my favorite fish sauce. Instead of butter I chose olive oil, and apropos of nothing, I added some Bobbie's Boat Sauce, because it makes great flavors greater.  Cook this steak hot, serve it rare, and enjoy the results.
