    Shrimp and Chorizo

    Shrimp, aside for being absolutely great in and of themselves, are also a great vehicle to carry other flavors.  As such, they are common is just about every major cuisine around the world (at least those near water!), and they are also one of my favorite ingredients.  In this recipe video, I show you how to make a Shrimp and Chorizo dish, that I’d call Spanish is style – although I don’t reall

    Mushroom Ravioli with Brown Butter Sauce

    I have a number of simple, fast pasta dishes, in my bag of tricks, but it probably doesn’t get any simpler than store bought ravioli and a 4 ingredient sauce that takes about 8 minutes to make.  Impossible you say?  12 minutes to an elegant, tasty dinner on the table?  I say Yes You Can ;-)...and I'll show you how to do it in this recipe video.  The main key is to use store bought ravioli, and

    Orzo Risotto

    Risotto is one of my favorite foods.  Traditionally made from aborio rice, it is one of those platform ingredients that you can make literally thousands of dishes from.  However, not one to hold closely to tradition, I’ve started making risotto out of ingredients other than rice.  In this recipe video, I show you how to make an Orzo risotto.  Orzo is a ric

    Corn Chowder

    Is it a Chowder or a Soup?  What’s the difference?  Well, I certainly play pretty fast and lose with traditional rules, but for me chowders have cream.  Chowders have potatoes.  Chowders are chunky.  That’s about it.  I say put any ingredients in that you want, as long as they taste good to you.  For this recipe, I’m going to show you how to make a Corn Chowder that'll meet all the rules I’ve s

    Stuffed Zucchini

    Lately I’ve been into stuffing vegetables.  Not sure where the inspiration came from, but it my be rooted in my increasingly climbing age.  I know I need to eat more veggies…and I also know that the more interestingly prepared the veggie…the more likely I am to consume said veggie.  Unfortunately for me,  too often even a nicely cooked carrot, green bean, or piece of broccoli doesn’t get my ful

    Roasted Halibut with Tomato Sauce and Orzo

    If your looking for an easy halibut recipe, I’ve got one for you.  Halibut is one of my favorite fish to cook, and I make it at least one a month.  Baking is one of the least labor intensive ways to cook halibut.  I’d say the majority of time I make halibut, I'm searing the fish on the stove top, quickly on both sides.  Searing it off like that gets the outside nice and crispy, and because you'

    Spaghetti with Chicken and Fava Beans

    As I’ve said before, pasta recipes are among my favorites because there are so many options, with so many ingredients.  I love the rich heavy sauces, that simmer on the stove and perfume the entire house (if not neighborhood), and I also love the light quick dishes that take 20 minutes to make, but are still packed with flavor and bite.  In this recipe video, I show you one of those 20 minute p

    Grandmas Meatballs

    One of my most fond food memories is my Grandma Beaulieu’s meatballs.  All the kids love them, but my love bordered on worship.  She lived in Massachusetts, I in Maryland, and because that meant an 8 hour drive with 4 kids stuffed in the back seat, I didn’t get my favorite meatballs all that often.  And that probably made them even more special.  In this recipe video, I show you how to make my
