I love corn on the cob. It’s one of the true culinary joys of summer time. And while I love to have corn on the cob, cooked in the traditional ways…steamed, grilled, roasted with a bit of butter and...
Parsley is maybe the most ubiquitous of herbs, and I use it all the time…despite my memories of the curly, leathery version tucked into the corners of the buffets of my childhood. Today, I know to...

I love to incorporate fruit into both sweet and savory dishes. Not only does it get more healthy food on our plate, but fruit can add textures and flavors that really enhance savory food.

The purpose of roux is also very simple – they allow us to thicken liquids into sauces. In this video (and below), I show you how to make a roux.

Those little guys, despite be very small and harmless looking, are hard and rocks, and it could really ruin someone’s day to bite unexpectedly into a pit; So, is this quick cooking video I show you my technique for removing an olive pit. Granted, you can find olives that are already pitted…and if you like them, and can find them…by all means use them. But, if you come across some that need pitting, you can follow these simple steps.
