    Stuffed Eggplant

    While I never really liked Eggplant as a kid, I’ve really grown to like it over the years.  I still  think it’s a bit of weird vegetable…kind of like a cross between a squash and….a….sponge?  Which I know doesn’t sound appetizing, but they really are tasty.  In this recipe video, I show you one of my favorite applications, stuffed Eggplant.  I happen to be using baby eggplants that

    Steak Fries

    Steak Fries, are really just big fries right?  Pretty much…with the exception that my wife likes a steak fry a whole lot more than a standard fry.  In fact, as fries gets thinner, her smile successively turns around, into an sad little frown.  As a husband and cook who knows what’s good for me, that means, when I’m in the mood for fries…I’m really in the mood for Steak Fries.  In this recipe vi
