Homemade Vegetable Soup

In this recipe video, I make a vegetable soup that easy for anyone to make at home. I crank this soup out anytime I feel my vegetable consumption is dropping and I need a boost. Of course that boost needs to come with great flavor, and that is exactly what this vegetable soup provides.Continue Reading...

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

In this recipe video, I show you how to improve on one of the most un-improvable vegetables – asparagus. My secret, add bacon. Bacon wrapped asparagus retains, that fresh, grassy flavor of asparagus, and combines it with the salty yummy-ness of bacon.Continue Reading...

    Tortellini with Mushrooms & Peas

    Too often my friends think of pasta dishes as having to be heavy and rich.  And while I love them that way…heavy and rich certainly they do not have to be.  There are a ton of pasta recipes that are light, have subtle flavors, and are absolutely delicious.  Here’s just such a recipe for Tortellini.

    Jicama Salad

    While a simple green salad is always a “nice” option, I love to find new and interesting ingredients that really make a salad something special.  For this recipe, I show you how to make a Jicama and Apple salad, served over some butter lettuce, that has a huge variety of flavors and textures.  Those flavors and textures, enable the salad to really stands up as substantial portion o

    Coconut Curry Butternut Squash Soup

    One of my favorite soups is Butternut Squash.  The soup is sweet and savory, has a beautiful color and texture, and while it’s great all year long, it is the perfect soup for Fall.  I make a very traditional butternut squash soup that is great, but in this recipe I change it up with the addition of Coconut and Curry.  Th

    Pea Soup

    I’d say that about weekly (maybe every two weeks), I make a soup, and frequently, it’s a vegetable soup.  Vegetables soups are simple, delicious and a great way to get more healthy food in the belly…especially if you’re one (like me) who’d generally rather have another piece of bacon than another piece of broccoli.  Here, I show you how to make a pea soup, that I think you are going to love.  T

    How to Cut Carrots

    Prep work is never the fun part of cooking, and in this post we focus on prep work.  Specifically, how to cut carrots.  Now, while cutting carrots is boring and dull, there is a very good reason you want to get good at it; the faster you can go, the less time you need to spend cutting and more time you get to spend cooking and eating.  You also want to be a proficient carrot cutter, so you be c

    Carrot Puree

    I love a well-made dish of mashed potatoes, filled with good fresh butter and cream.  Of course, my long term health, could do without a bit of that butter and cream, and so I love dishes, like this carrot puree, that can give as much (albeit slightly different) satisfaction with a bit healthier spin.  This recipe for carrot puree can easily be modified to just about any similar vegetable, and

    Corn Salsa

    If you look, you’ll find quite a few salsas on this site.  I love them, and many goto salsa versions and am always looking for more.  Here I show you how to make a simple corn salsa – one of my favorites.  Obviously you can use a salsa like this on tacos, and other Mexican food (and I do use it that way), but it’s versatile enough to use with a perfectly cooked piece of chicken, po

    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

    Orzo Risotto

    Risotto is one of my favorite foods.  Traditionally made from aborio rice, it is one of those platform ingredients that you can make literally thousands of dishes from.  However, not one to hold closely to tradition, I’ve started making risotto out of ingredients other than rice.  In this recipe video, I show you how to make an Orzo risotto.  Orzo is a ric
