For this flatbread pizza I’m using Asparagus and some caramelized onions to create a sweet and savory combination. I love making 4 – 5 different flatbread pizzas for party’s – even letting guest assemble and bake off their own. It’s a great way to get friends involved in cooking dinner, and with a bit of wine flowing, it turns into a ton of fun.

There are a number of high quality prepared pastas on the market today, and tortellini is one of my favorite pastas to cook. This recipe is for a tortellini alfredo with fresh asparagus. Alfredo sauce is super easy to make, really just some reduced cream and a bit of parmesan cheese. But is can also be pretty heavy.
I love making pizzas at home. With a few simple tricks, they are easy to make, and the choice of toppings are nearly endless, making it easy to catere to everyone’s tastes, and even the changing seasons. Here, I show you how to make a sun dried tomato and goat cheese pizza.
Boneless skinless chicken breasts are great for the simple reason that there are hundreds of great recipes for them. This recipe for a Chicken Breast with a Mustard cream sauce is one of my favorites. The chicken breasts are easy to sear off in a pan, until they are just cooked through, with a nice flavorful crust on the outside.
Chicken breast recipes have become a staple in my house. They are really easy to cook, and very versatile, going well with so many other ingredients. For this recipe, I show you how to make a chicken breast with a morel mushroom sauce. Morel’s are perhaps my favorite mushroom. But they are wild, and can be hard to find.
Bacon and onions just go together really well. So why not on pizza? Making pizza’s at home is always a hit with my family. Partly because, everyone gets to choose their own toppings. For this pizza, I when with a combination of freshly sautéed bacon and green onions, or scallions.
Burgers are a favorite of mine because there are literally thousands of different versions you can easily make at home. Here is a Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Cheese Hamburger that is a pretty frequent player is my burger rotation. The onions are cooked until tender and golden brown and give off a sweetness that nothing like raw onion.
This Burrata Crostini is a quick and easy recipe that I frequently turn to when I’m hosing a party. Crostini, is just a fancy word for toasted bread. The great thing is, that there are tons of things that taste great on top of good toasted bread! For this recipe we top the crostini with some Burrata cheese, which is a type of mozzerlla that is more creamy and very mild tasting.
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.
Alfredo sauce is as simple as it is delicious. I mean cream and cheese…how you can go wrong? I keep this alfredo sauce recipe to just a few ingredients, but it’s actually a very easy sauce to modify with things like garlic, shallots, herbs, or other vegetables. And it has a ton of uses.
