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…

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…

Stuffed Pesto Chicken

To me, chicken is one of those ‘fake it til you make it’ dishes. It often doesn’t stand a chance on restaurant menus when it’s up against the grilled branzino, braised beef short ribs or a perfectly cooked duck breast. Sorry chicken, you can be boring. So we have to dress it up. I love…
