BLOG | This Supper

My grandfather was a tremendous cook. From pies to roast turkeys, a meal wasn’t complete unless there were floured handprints on the cherry cabinets and bowls littering the granite countertops.

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…

Balsamic & Honey Glaze

Every now and then I enjoy dressing up a dish with this simple glaze. This balsamic and honey reduction is both sweet and savory. I drizzle it over chicken dishes, salads, and even cheeses (think burrata). I love cooking with balsamic vinegar because it’s rich in flavor and inexpensive (you can however splurge on pricey…

BLOG | Have Yourself a Merry Little Brunch

The holidays are a hectic time. If you live in New York, they can be dizzying, and even maddening. Each year though, I vow to savor them, and not just admire those glittery strings of white lights in passing on my commute home from work. Even parties this time of year seem stressful, which is…

BLOG | How to Host a Harvest

“Don’t you just love New York in the fall?” The rhythm of the city settles back into its routine of the weekday grind. Restaurant tables once vacated during slow summer weekends resume their weekend brunch rituals, becoming cluttered with bloody marys and sparkling mimosas. Football games take over the TV screens at local bars, where loyal…

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…

Mediterranean Chicken

The scene: You, in your kitchen, wondering what to do with the chicken you just bought. I get a lot of calls from friends and family in dinner distress. Chicken is usually the culprit, too. So the next time you’re feeling flustered over how to make chicken more flavorful, make this no-fail Mediterranean dish. This…

BLOG | A Post-July 4th Lunch

I’m sure by now you’re recovering from your July 4th cookout feast. The grill is on the lawn, the fridge is stocked with leftover burgers wrapped in foil, and there are a few stray bottle caps from beers gone by that litter the countertops. And after the fireworks, the parades and the endless waving of…

Maple Dijon Salmon

You know that feeling when you get home from work and really don’t feel like doing anything? You know, the kind of slump where even ordering takeout sounds like a hassle, and you really just can’t be bothered? Come, my friend, to Fieldhouse Kitchen. Because even though you don’t feel like doing anything, doesn’t mean…

Seared Pork Chops with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

You know that feeling when you buy a piece of meat or fish and then you walk home in terror and fear that you’ll end up dramatically undercooking it and die alone in your apartment? This is often the feeling I’m overcome with whenever I buy pork. Isn’t that odd? I have complete confidence when…

The 5-Minute Brownie

I’m not a baker. Baking is much too technical for me. The minute “rules” and measurements are applied, the less likely I am to follow them. But as a special treat to my sister on her birthday, I’ve decided to actually take notes and measure, and in doing so, launch and unveil my “5-minute” dessert…

Spicy Roasted Cabbage

Ever stood in the produce section of the grocery store and wondered what you’re going to make for a side dish to your meal? This happens to me all the time. As much as I love my Roasted Cauliflower, sweet potatoes, or Sriracha Lemon Roasted Brussels Sprouts, sometimes I feel like trying something a little…
