Sriracha Soy Salmon

When you’ve been together a long time, there comes that inevitable need and desire to stir things up a bit.   Sriracha and I have been together many years now, and while things are still hot, I figure it’s time to mix things up — or rather, mix it up with different things.   Enter…

Chili

I arrived into the world a week or so past my springtime due date during the first few hours of the first day of summer. It’s safe to say, I’ve been waiting on summer since before I was even born. I could go on about my undying love for that fleeting, magical season on the…

Chicken Parmesan

Balsamic Steak & Mushrooms with Sauce Verte

I visited a friend on Long Island a few summers back and can still recall the bustling Friday night scene sitting at the bar of a popular neighborhood restaurant tucked just outside the village. We ordered some wine, chatted with our neighbors and then the hanger steak arrived. What made it so memorable? Perhaps the…

Caprese Chicken Milanese

In a perfect world, I’d be cooking this dish from a Tuscan villa perched high on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean, using ingredients found at specialty shops or open air markets with a gorgeous Italian guy by the name of Lorenzo or something waltzing in with a crate of wine from a nearby vineyard and…

Cod Piccata

I’m from Boston so it’s no surprise, I love Cod. It’s such a New England staple. While it may just be a plain flaky white fish to some, to me it represents that weathered hell bent city tucked in the arm of Massachusetts that I call home. This dish is lemony and fresh, and the…
