Homemade Whole Wheat Honey Oat Bread Recipe

For the past 6 months or so I’ve been fascinated with making homemade bread and seeing other chefs make it.  From the crunchy outside browned crust to the fluffy pillowy inside, it is science in its finest forms.  It’s the combination of time, fire and air incorporated into a recipe and it’s so awesome!  This Homemade Whole Wheat Honey Oat Bread Recipe did not disappoint during the entire life cycle of the recipe.  I can honestly say I’m not sure if I enjoyed making it more or eating it more, I’m that intrigued by the process.  However, once you take…

Ice Box Cake with Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe and Banana Cream

“This is the best thing I’ve ever eaten” are the exact word that came out of my wife’s mouth after she tasted this insanely delicious Ice Box Cake with Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe and Banana Cream.  Sure Ice Box cakes have been around for a minute and yup I’m late to the party as usual, sorry busy chasing around a 4-year old, but dang did I come back in with a home run .  I’m trying to stay humble here, but if I had a restaurant I would figure out how to get this thing on the dessert menu it’s…

Braised Pork and Fontina Stuffed Ravioli with Sauce Pomodoro

Hands down the very first thing I miss as we enter the colder Fall and Winter months is fresh tomatoes.  Whether I grow them in my backyard or pick them up at the local produce market they seem to be on my every dish in the summer time.  Now that it’s cold that’s changed a bit, but possibly for the better? Let me introduce you to Mutti tomatoes, which are straight out of Parma Italy.  They use a unique combination of Rotondo Di Parma, Plum, Cherry, Baby Roma and San Marzano tomatoes to literally bring the freshest tasting tomatoes I’ve…

Avocado Toast Recipe and Different Gourmet Toast Recipes

For the last few years there has been an explosion of different gourmet toast recipes.  However, it seems like at least 50% of them revolve around an Avocado Toast Recipe and from there is expanded into a multitude of different types of toasts.  The latest craze has been sweet potato toasts where the toast is actually a slice of fresh sweet potato, not a dough made with mashed sweet potatoes.  Crazy I know, but we now live in a world of mash-ups where anything goes.  While I think this has drawn a lot of attention to the creative food world,…

Baked Brie En Croute Recipe and Baked Brie with Cranberries

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 a Pecan Pie Recipe with Bourbon and Chocolate

One of the things I love about pecan pie is listening to how people pronounce it.  I know, weird, but it’s so interesting to see how people say it just by where they are from.  The northeast says PEE-can pie while a majority of the US says pee-KAHN pie, fascinating I know.  Well regardless of how you say it one things for sure, it’s dang delicious!  Of course, simply because of how my mind works, I’m trying to take this pecan pie to another level by adding in some bourbon and chocolate.  Of course, not-too-mention making my own crust, with…

How to make potato rolls with goat cheese and honey butter

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…
