Peach & Prosciutto Salad

I never liked peaches until I had one freshly picked from a tree at the height of summer and hand delivered to me in a basket from one of my good friends. It was love at first bite. I was ruined for all other peaches and I knew it. While I have yet to experience…

French Onion Soup

I rarely ever have butter on hand. It’s odd, I know. Julia Child would not be impressed. So when I set out to create a proper French onion soup, I thought there’s no way I could get away making it without butter. But I did. In part because I like a challenge. And, in larger…

Maple Roasted Bar Nuts

One of my favorite weekly rituals (and I warn you, I have many), is to come home on a Monday after work and make a tray of these roasted nuts. I’ll pour a glass of wine when they’re done and then go sit and watch the news or read a magazine. To me, it’s the…

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…

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…

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…

PBR Battered Baked Onion Rings

The first guy I was ever infatuated with wore blue jeans, a white t-shirt and loved PBR. It was one of the few things I knew about him as I was just a lovestruck teenager at the time who could only watch from afar in hopes that one day he might notice me. He’s married…

Irish Soda Bread Muffins

After returning stateside from Ireland for the second time, I had fallen completely in love with everything Irish. I longed for the rambling pubs, pints of perfectly poured Guinness and Bulmers cider, Celtic music and of course, Irish soda bread. I scoured through stores and recipes for that authentic Irish soda bread but could never…

Bedeviled Eggs

A friend of mine calls deviled eggs bedeviled eggs. Actually, I’m not even sure he knew they were really called deviled eggs. The name stuck with me because why have just deviled eggs when you can have bedeviled eggs? I love these eggs however they’re made. There’s just something wonderfully decadent about them. I’ve had…

Simply Seared Bay Scallops

The No. 1 Google ranked Fieldhouse Kitchen recipe is getting an upgrade in October 2017. Sign up for the newsletter, everydayFK, to join the party. Ah summer in New England. So fleeting and short lived. These bay scallops, paired with a glass (or two) of Sauvignon Blanc, bring me back to summertime no matter the…
