Baked Brie En Croute Recipe and Baked Brie with Cranberries

brie-1

I have to admit, when I was growing up I couldn’t stand the thought of baked brie.  I thought the brie cheese in the center that was oozing out was delicious, but what on earth is this weird fuzzy layer on the outside protecting all that goodness in the middle?  I know now that the rind of the brie is intended to be eaten, but even to this day it’s a little weird.  It kind of has an earthy mushroomy flavor to it that is just plain odd.  However, when you bake brie with all the goodness that I did…

How to make potato rolls with goat cheese and honey butter

potato-rolls-7

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays I often take for granted.  We have so much here in the US, and so many things are readily accessible that we often don’t think about being thankful for the little things.  The past year has been incredibly challenging for me, mostly from a health standpoint.  I’m only 35, but man has 2016 beat me up, chewed me up and spit me out a couple of times.  I’ve had horrible back pain, surgery, been super sick, been deaf in 1 ear for a month, I mean I’m one whipped puppy.  Not-too-mention all the political…

Mediterranean Turkey Burger with Zucchini Fritter and French Remoulade

Every summer that comes along I always get pressured to buy turkey burgers by the pound at least once a week from my wife, so I whipped up this Mediterranean Turkey Burger with Zucchini Fritter and French Remoulade.  She is literally obsessed with turkey burgers, as are my in-laws, so every time I make them they seem to make arrangements to come over J; Needless-to-say, I live with Turketarains!  If you aren’t sure what that is, it’s someone who has taken the concept of eating turkey as much as possible to another level.  Now I’m not saying that it’s all…

Grilled Chicken Satay with Sweetened Soy Noodles

chicken-satay-7

I love simple foods, both to make and eat, and this Chicken Satay with Sweetened Soy Noodles is that to the T.  Big flavor, easy to prepare, and something a little different is what I am always on the lookout for.  If my daughter isn’t digging the peanut buttery taste from the chicken I know she’ll at least dig the sweetened soy noodles, which has veggies in it! To begin this recipe, I boiled the noodles first and then chilled them.  You can use a rice noodle, udon, soba, you name it, it can be used.  One of the coolest…

Roasted Sweet and Savory Acorn Squash

squash-8

When it comes to cooking for the holidays I know how stressing it can get.  You’ve got “those” family members coming over that you only see like 3 times a year, kids are running around, your house is trashed and your kitchen has crusty foil lids laying around and food is everywhere.  Yeah, I’ve been down that road a few times.  But, it’s all good because eventually that delicious meal you’ve been working up to will get served, people and kids will eat, and your favorite relatives will eventually go home :-).    One of the biggest questions I get…
