    Herb Roasted Chicken

    Roast Chicken is at least a once a month meal for my family.  And tonight, I’m doing a herb roasted chicken, which is simple and back a ton of flavor.  While I’m using thyme and rosemary as the primary herbs,  you can use just about any fresh green herbs that you like.  I finely chop them, add some butter to make a paste, and then rub that herb butter under the chicken skin.

    Simple dishes like this Spaghetti with Artichokes and Tomato, are among my favorite thing to make.  The sauce takes just about the same amount of time, as cooking the spaghetti it self.  So it’s super fast to make.  And treated right, the ingredients come together in perfect harmony, giving a ton of flavor and the impression, that it’s a recipe you’ve been working on for hours.

    Ribeye Steak with Chimichurri

    Ribeye steak, is one of my absolute favorites.  In fact, I’ve often heard them called “the chefs cut”, because the pro’s prefer them for their great marbling which brings both more flavor and a very tender texture to the meat.  These Certified Steak Ribeyes deliver on all points, and I loved making them.

    Walnut Pesto

    We all think of Pesto as the green pasta sauce, made with basil, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, etc…but over the past several years, I’ve come to think of pesto as a technique as much as a specific recipe.  If a pesto is simply a pureed, generally uncooked, pasta sauce…well, then you can make all kinds of pestos.  And one of my favorites is walnut pesto.
