    Broccoli Gratin

    Broccoli was a hard vegetable for me to learn to love.  I hated it as a kid, and the lasting memories of over cafeteria trays of broccoli, overcooked, limp and watery, turned me off for years.  But then entered broccoli soup....mmm…not to bad.   Broccoli Mac and Cheese or Fettucini alfredo

    Pumpkin Macaroni 'n Cheese

    I amazing me, that you can put just about any ingredient in Macaroni and Cheese and it makes a great dish (ok maybe mackerel wouldn’t be too good).   And while the traditional version is quite awesome, I love to “mix it up” with new ingredients.  I especially like it when I can match those new ingredients to a season or time of year.  That’s the case in this recipe video, where I show you how t

    Pan Roasted Pork Chop with Succotash

    There are a lot of great cuts of pork, but perhaps the most common (other than bacon) is the pork chop.  Over the past several years, the pork council as done a great job marketing the other white mean and I'm seeing chops served across the gambit from the most inexpensive restaurants, up to the Michelin Star places.  And there’s a good reason…they are quite tasty, and work really well with a t

    Pea, Corn and Potato Succotash

    In my book, and admittedly my book make be wrong, a succotash can be made up of just about any vegetables, all mixed together.  That means that I can change up the ingredients as the seasons roll on, and that I can mix and match flavors and textures to get a composed dish greater than the sum of each of its parts.

    Pulled Pork Sandwiches

    A pulled pork sandwich is a thing of simple beauty.  First, you’re off to a great start, by using pork, one of the all time greatest things ever.  Slow roasted in the oven at barely 200 degrees, with a sweet & spicy rub, the meat gets super tender, and stays deliciously moist.  Second, (at least in my version) you’ve got coleslaw that adds a crunchy texture, and a tangy flavor.  Finally, th

    Man there are a whole lot of coleslaw, and coleslaw like recipes.  Obviously, you can use a ton of different ingredients….then of course, the variations on dressings, is almost as endless.  I could spend a few years creating a website solely dedicated to coleslaw, but I’m not going to do that.  Instead, this recipe video, I’m going to show you a fairly simple, straightforward coles

    Pulled Pork

    Pulled pork is kinda a labor of love.  I throw the kinda in there, because while it does take a long time to make…it’s not hard and most of that time, it’s just quietly doing its thing in the oven – rather than “active” cooking.  Now, I don’t use a smoker, and I know based on that statement alone some of you have already left.

    Roast Chicken with Polenta and Mushroom Sauce

    I love cooking a roast chicken.  Even the most straight forward preparations or they are tender and delicious.  In this recipe video, the chicken itself is simply prepared; as is some cheesy polenta; as is an easy mushroom sauce.  But the combination of the three, create a complete meal, with complex flavors and textures – perfect for Sunday supper any time of the year, but especially as summer

    Mashed Potatoes

    Near the top of the any “comfort” food list should be the classic mashed potato.  Besides my Irish roots forcing my love of the simple potato, there are intrinsic properties that just about everyone is going to love.  You can have them chunky or smooth, whipped or mashed, or simple or flavored (like blue cheese mashed
