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…

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…

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…

Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon

I love salmon. Sometimes I’ll just lightly coat it with olive oil and a little salt and pepper while other times I’ll get more creative. This glaze is robust and flavorful and pairs wonderfully with salmon (I’ve also used this marinade on chicken and pork and it’s just as yummy). I prefer salmon on the…

Charred Broccolini

It’s no secret; I love to grill. I love it because it epitomizes the perfect summer evening, sitting in chairs around the barbeque, listening to music, drinking a glass or wine or a beer and laughing. I love grilling even though the majority of cooking scars I’ve sustained have involved outdoor grills. But neither here…
