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…

Roasted Smashed Sweet Potatoes

I get asked a lot for side dish ideas. Sure, you may have your main protein in mind, but sometimes it becomes difficult to pair up other smaller dishes to complete your meal. That’s why it’s important to have staples — in other words, your go-to side dishes that work well with just about anything. I make sweet potatoes…

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…

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…

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…

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 into the…

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…
