Ultimate Eggs Benedict Recipe with Whole Wheat English Muffin

I’m not going to lie, this Ultimate Eggs Benedict Recipe with Whole Wheat English Muffin has been 6 years in the making.  Once upon a time not too long ago I was potentially pursuing opening up a restaurant in Chicago that served breakfast and lunch with a full spread of fresh baked breads and pastries every morning.  Well that quickly came to a halt when I staged at my friend’s restaurant for 1 day reminding me just how grueling the restaurant industry is.  Even though my breakfast/lunch spot never came to life I still had created a menu of what…

Thai Curry Shrimp Pasta Recipe

Man I have to admit, I try to avoid making things that revolve around the whole Thai Curry food world.  I’m just not that well versed in it and truth be told I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to spicy food.  I can certainly build of tolerance to eating spicy food on the regular but I need to be in training and right now I haven’t even attempted it.  However, I always believe in making things “comfortably spicy.”  Nothing more strange to me than watching someone literally dab their head with paper towels as they sweat profusely while…

Winter Salad Recipe with Roasted Butternut Squash and Pomegranate Seeds

I know, it’s a winter salad from Chef Billy Parisi that has close to 9,000 ingredients in it.  I realize quite a few of my recipes have a decent number of ingredients in it but man once I’m creating something I being to think, “Well this other thing would go great in here, and then this, and then this, and then this,” until I get completely carried away like in this Winter Salad Recipe with Roasted Butternut Squash and Pomegranate Seeds.  All I can say is, at least it’s good haha.  That’s my fall back.  However, with a lot of…
