Chicken Tacos

In this recipe video, I show you a chicken taco recipe. There are probably as many chicken taco recipe versions as there are cooks, and admittedly I change my own up pretty frequently. This version has you making a wet rub to season the chicken, and then I serve them with some awesome garnishes.Continue Reading...

    Chicken Tacos

    Chicken tacos are pretty common in my house.  I’d say I cook them every couple weeks, usually during the week, because they don’t take too long to make after getting home from work, and of course, because they are pretty tasty.  You can also vary up the spices and the toppings to keep things interesting with different versions.

    Maple Glazed Pork Chop

    I probably have pork chops at least once a month, and I love them, but similar to chicken, I’m always looking for new twists to make them a bit more exciting.  In this recipe video I make a maple glazed pork chop, that takes me back to my New England days.  With a rich maple flavor, this sauce lends a sweet and tangy spin to the standard chop.

    Mushroom Bruschetta

    Traditional bruscheta is fresh tomato and basil on a crostini, and I love them.  But there is no reason not to take that same technique and apply it to hundreds of different toppings.  This recipe is a simple appetizer or h’ordeauvs that can be made ahead of time and assembled at the last minute.  It’s also great to make this with a traditional tomato bruschetta as a counter point.
