Spinach Salad

Spinach Salad

Spinach Salad, may not sound like the most exciting recipe in the world. But what if I add in words like bacon, bacon vinaigrette, apple, feta? Becomes a bit more tantalizing doesn't it? This spinach salad is one of my favorites for a starter course, or as a side salad for say a big summer BBQ. It'...
Warm Goat Cheese Salad

Warm Goat Cheese Salad

In this recipe video, I show you how to make a very sophisticated, but very simple starter dish – a warm goat cheese salad. The goat cheese is crusted in panko bread crumbs and quickly fried, so that the outside is crispy, and the center warm, creamy and delicious. To offset that unctuous cheese...
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

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. It’s pretty easy to make, so I break this...
Salad Lyonnaise Recipe

Salad Lyonnaise

In this recipe video, I show you how to make a Salad Lyonnaise. This salad may be my all time favorite...because let's face it, how you can not love a salad with bacon and eggs. To the traditional ingredients, I add some sauteed mushrooms which add some more body and earthiness to the dish...
Jicama Salad Recipe

Jicama Salad

In this recipe video, I show you how to make a Jicama Salad...or perhaps more accurately, a Jicama and Apple Salad. Jimaca is a vegetable that many aren't familiar with, and if you're one, I'd urge you to give it a try. It's Mexican in origin (I think) and tastes a bit like a...

ColeSlaw Recipe


In this recipe video, I show you how to make pretty traditional coleslaw. Coleslaw is one of my favorite summer salads to server on the BBQ days, but frankly, I think the hearty cabbage, and the different herbs/spices you can use, allow you customize it for whatever season you'd like. This...
