Homemade Mayonnaise

If you’ve never prepared Homemade Mayonnaise at home before you’re really missing out. It’s such an easy recipe to make, takes under ten minutes, and can be made with ingredients you already have.

Nicoise Salad

Niçoise Salad

Salad Niçoise is best in Spring using fresh Farmers’ Market ingredients with the help of some high quality pantry items. This started as a recipe for an easy to prepare seasonal salad you can bring to a picnic, the beach, or even to the office. It’s evolved, though, into a […]

Bourbon Butter Pancakes

Bourbon Butter Pancakes

These Bourbon Butter Pancakes are a flavorful update to the classic dull pancake recipe. Use bourbon butter instead of regular butter and brown sugar instead of white sugar for a pancake that has notes of caramel. Also, Lemon Zest! I’m not a pancake lover. I think they’re flavorless and exist […]

Eggplant Parm

Eggplant Parm

Fried planks of breaded Eggplant, fanned with melted mozzarella and topped with homemade tomato sauce. This is my favorite Eggplant Parm recipe. Fun fact – Eggplant is the original parm. Melanzane alla parmigiana or just parmigiana is what it’s called in Italy. Chicken and veal are American creations. From what […]

This pasta dish of Asparagus, Crisp-Skinned Sockeye Salmon, and Linguine is tossed with a delicious Lemon Butter Parm-Reggiano sauce.

Soft Cooked Eggs - Sousvide

What’s the best way to Soft Cook an Egg?

There was some time a couple of months back where I kept overhearing conversations about the best way to cook an egg. I genuinely wasn’t sure so I didn’t have anything to add to the conversation. What do you do when you’re not smart enough to talk about something? YOU […]

Braised Short Ribs

Braised Short Ribs

Braised Short Ribs are super easy regardless of what recipe you use. This recipe was developed using what I had on hand – without wasting any valuable, drinkable booze. Instead of wine or beer, we’ll use diced tomatoes, chicken stock, and dried shiitake mushrooms. These short ribs were staring at […]

Garlic Horseradish Mashed Cauliflower

Garlic Horseradish Mashed Cauliflower

Garlic Horseradish Mashed Cauliflower are the lighter and easier version of the classic Mashed Potatoes. Nevermind the health benefits as we’re using butter and cream here – but probably not as much as you’d use with Potatoes. I love Mashed Potatoes but I’m always trying to make a lighter version. […]
