Chicken Parmesan

Chicken parm is a dish that would often come to my mind whenever my mom would ask me, “What would you like for dinner tonight?” before I headed out the door to school. And then I would arrive home, wait by the window for her little red Saab to roll up the hill and into…

Lemon Roasted Chicken with Confetti Potatoes

If you’re intimated just by the thought of roasting a whole chicken, I urge you to continue reading. This will be the easiest, no-hassle meal you’ll ever make and it will go a long way. The best part is that this little bird only costs $10 and you can stretch it all week long. Are…

Lime Quinoa with Grilled Shrimp & Summer Squash

I’m a huge fan of salads that can be served hot or cold. To me, it’s the kind of food that’s ideal for entertaining — there’s no fuss or hectic rush and nothing’s more effortless than placing a gorgeous salad on the table on your own time. This lime quinoa salad with spicy grilled shrimp…

Banana Ice Cream

When I’m not working, mingling at my local watering hole or stumbling upon hidden nooks of New York City, I’m in my kitchen churning out one-ingredient ice cream without a machine. Because why have just a banana when you can have banana ice cream? Here’s what you’ll need to make about 5-6 servings: 4 ripe…

Thai Shrimp Salad

This is the kind of dish that makes me want to invite friends over for a casual summer lunch at some big long wooden table outside ― Maine comes to mind ― and adorn it with glasses of rosé. This salad is light, refreshing and is perfectly balanced with the right amount of heat and…

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…

The Sauce Verte

I had to call this the sauce verte as it’s one of my most favorite recipes that I’ve conjured up like a mad scientist in my small kitchen. It’s a green sauce that adds a flavorful punch on top of a steak or any kind of meat or poultry. It’s a burst of freshness and…

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…

Shaved Asparagus Salad

I read somewhere once that salads are all about texture. If that’s the case, then this one has it all: the crunch from the raw asparagus, the juiciness from the tomatoes and the salty smoothness of the ricotta salata. Hungry yet? Here’s what you’ll need for my Shaved Asparagus Salad that’s dressed with my Lemon…

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…

The Basics: Lemon Vinaigrette

This is the salad dressing of Fieldhouse Kitchen. I use it all the time. It’s the perfect base. You can add Dijon, honey, balsamic vinegar — anything you’d like to it. But I love it on its own. It’s light and crisp and pairs well with every kind of salad. Here’s what you’ll need for my…

Simple Arugula Salad

I’ve always valued simplicity — especially when it comes to food. Some of the best meals I’ve ever eaten have consisted only of a few high-quality ingredients. This salad has Parmigiano-Reggiano — a Fieldhouse Kitchen splurge, but a necessary one to complete this lemony, light salad. It’s so simple, yet so delicious. It makes a perfect…
