    Ten Tips for the Perfect Spaghetti

    Now I’m not here to dismiss anyone’s favorite spaghetti.  I know we all like Mom’s or Grandma’s version, and know in our heart of hearts, theirs is the best.  I understand that that notion, and I’m fine if that’s your stance.  However, Grandma’s not always around to make you a plate of the perfect spaghetti.  Sometimes we’re on our own, and what’s a person to do?  Go Spaghetti-less?  That’s not

    Orzo with Summer Vegetables

    While pasta makes for great main courses, there are a ton of different and great soup, salad, and side dish applications.  In this recipe video, I’m going to show you how to make an Orzo Pasta with Summer Vegetables that certainly could be a main, but that I generally use for either a hot side dish, or a cold pasta salad.  Orzo is a small, rice shaped pasta, that is pe

    Eggplant Parmesan

    Can “Parmesan” be used a verb?  As in, take this chicken and Parmesan it - the result is chicken parmesan.  It should be; because you cover just about anything in a good tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, and it’s going to taste great - it needs it's own verb..  In this recipe video, I show you how to make an easy Eggplant Parmesan that is absolutely delicious.  Eggplant is a perfect vegetable

    Roasted Halibut with Tomato Sauce and Orzo

    If your looking for an easy halibut recipe, I’ve got one for you.  Halibut is one of my favorite fish to cook, and I make it at least one a month.  Baking is one of the least labor intensive ways to cook halibut.  I’d say the majority of time I make halibut, I'm searing the fish on the stove top, quickly on both sides.  Searing it off like that gets the outside nice and crispy, and because you'

    Gnocchi Bolognese

    One of the nice (really very nice) things about a sauce like Bolognese, is that you can make a large batch and then freeze little containers with just enough for one night.  Then, without a ton of work, you can have spaghetti Bolognese, ravioli Bolognese, meat lasagna, eggplant parmesan…and you can also make gnocchi Bolognese, which is what I show you in this recipe video.  I love these little

    Meat Lasagna

    One of the great “family” meals of all time is Lasagna.  As a kid, I loved lasagna night, and being able to dig into that baked pile of tomato-y, cheesy, & pasta, along a tasty slice of garlic bread was great.  Lasagna is pretty easy to make, and in this recipe video I show you how to make one step by step.  Now when I say make one…I mean it, how to make one.  This is one v

    Spaghetti Bolognese

    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

    Bolognese Sauce

    There are thousand ways to make pasta, and you can be really creative.  Take just about any vegetable, toss it with some pasta, add a bit of parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, and you’ve got a great meal.  But…there is something about the classics.  Bolognese sauce is a traditional meat sauce, and while there are some standard techniques used, there are as many different versions as there are co

    Corn Avocado and Tomato Salsa

    I love making salsas that I can use as sauces to change up some the regular old hum-drum every day meals.  You can make salsas out of just about anything, and use them turn an ordinary piece of chicken…into something extraordinary.  In this recipe, I show you how to make a “Southwest” inspired, chucky salsa, of corn, avocado and tomato.  Come summer time, all those ingredients are in full swing
