I Made Me a Chicken!

It occurred me to the other day that while I’ve probably made countless chicken recipes over my cooking career, I’ve never actually made a WHOLE chicken at once.  I’ll admit that secretly, I had always been a little intimidated by the whole chicken.  Something about it being broken down into its various parts always made […]

Artichoke Aglio e Olio

Frequently I get home from a long day at work, take a look in my fridge and pantry, and realize I haven’t been to the grocery store in at least 2 weeks….Needless to say, in times like this, it’s important to fall back on some classic, simple food that you probably have most of the […]

Garlic Basil Shrimp

I’ll admit, I’ve been on a bit a shrimp kick lately (and I have yet another shrimp dish planned for later this week…).  I can’t help it.  It’s healthy and tasty and just really hits the spot in the summertime.  This one can be thrown together pretty quickly. This garlicky shrimp dish would be excellent […]

Oven-Cooked Steak with Pan Seared Cherry Tomatoes

Today was exhausting and I spent a good portion of the day sitting in the car in stop and go traffic.  Needless to say, by the time I got home I was NOT in the mood to make a huge, complicated meal. Fortunately, I had some steaks defrosting in the fridge as well as some […]
