I love little bites. Call them canapés, Hors d'oeuvres, finger food…or anything else, I say good things come in small packages. And in this recipe video, I’ve got a really good one for you – a savory Apple and Brie bite that's scented with a bit of thyme. I’ve made these for parties, but sometimes the mood strikes and I’ll make up a batch for just my wife and I. They aren’t com

I gotta say, I have never been a huge broccoli fan. But I’ve promised myself to never completely swear off any food whole sale; and I know broccoli is really good for me. So I’m always looking for recipes that transform the vegetable enough to increase its appeal, without overwhelming every notion of “healthy”, with cheese, fat, bacon, or any number of other flavor enhancer

Of all the soups out there, French Onion Soup may just be my favorite. Great broth, good bread…and gobs of cheese; how can you go wrong. I’ve shown you how to make the traditional French Onion Soup before. This version uses the exact same ingredients, but I use a different presentation to put a modern/deconstructed spin on the classic.

I love a good Tex-Mex meal, and near the top of the list for me are steak fajitas. Since I was a kid, I’ve loved those sizzling plates of chicken or steak, onions and peppers; and making them at home can be really simple. Fajitas (steak, chicken, shrimp) make a great option for parties, as they are great crowd food, forcing people to be a bit interactive as they build their own

Of my favorite Italian classic is Spaghetti Bolognese (Spaghetti with meat sauce). This is the spaghetti of my childhood, with the ground meat, tomato sauce over spaghetti noodles with some garlic bread on the side. While I haven’t taken my mom’s recipe line by line (sorry mom) it’s reasonable close and I think it’s absolutely delicious. The sauce does take some time to make, but it’s not h

Simple is no slight when it comes to great food. Simple dishes don’t have to be simple flavors at all. They can pack a real punch, and can also be among the most visually stunning. For example, is this recipe video, I’ll show you how I make a zucchini (or squash) carpaccio; and it hard to find a simpler dish that doesn’t skimp at all on flavor. Carpaccio is traditionally make with beef, bu

Morel mushrooms are a wild mushroom variety that to my knowledge can’t be farmed or cultivated. Which is truly a shame, because they are one of the best mushrooms out there. When I see them in the store, I forget whatever I had planned for dinner, because it’s going to be morel mushroom night come hell or high water. You can prepare them in a ton of different preparations, but one of my favo

Come Spring, two of my favorite culinary pleasures are grilling and asparagus. so, in this recipe video, you probably know where I’m going…yes, grilled asparagus. I love asparagus prepared just about any way, shape or form, but grilling is definitely one of my favorites. The char and smokiness that you get from grilling, really adds to the flavor of the asparagus, and make it a lot more inte

As the seasons change, so do my pizza ingredients. This recipe, Asparagus Mushroom Pizza is perfect for spring or summer, when the Asparagus is tasty and in season. The basic techniques are the same, but the asparagus gives the pizza a fresh grassy taste, that offsets the earthy rich mushrooms. This is a good pizza to play around with the chesse as well.

Mac ‘n cheese is one of the my favorite comfort foods/side dishes (although it’s pretty good as a main course too…). One of things I love is that you can add a ton of different ingredients to make different version….from the very exotic to the most simple. In this recipe video, I make an Asparagus and Mushroom Mac ‘n Cheese with penne pasta, that I served with a roasted chicken.
