Gourmet Breakfast Toast Recipes with Poached Eggs

One of the most difficult meals to prepare in my household is breakfast.  It seems as if there are so few options.  Cereal, oatmeal or eggs, what would you like?  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have any issues with any of those things, but man can it get boring when it becomes routine.  It also seems as if breakfast is carb heavy in order to give us energy early in the morning, but truth be told we should be looking to protein and vegetables to help in that department.  Again, I’m not knocking carbs after all I’m Italian and…

New York Strip Steak Recipe with Lyonnaise Potatoes

Whether I’m doing it live in a demonstration or for some guests, people are always so interested when I cook a New York Strip Steak, as well as other cuts of meat.  I think it’s because most folks are trying to learn how to perfect their skills by cooking steak to their perfect liking.  One thing I can say about cooking steak and getting it to that beautiful desired internal temperature is that it takes a ton of practice.  There really is no science behind, it’s just going through the motions of mastery through repetition.  I mean even though I…

  Is there anything better than a simple delicious dessert that takes less than 30 minutes to make?  If you love these types of recipes then you will fall head over heels for this Homemade Apple Fritter Recipe with Cinnamon and Sugar.  Apple fritters are those tasty odd shaped donuts that you see at your local donut shop usually covered in some sort of glaze.  While I usually dig the glaze, I thought a cinnamon and sugar dusting would be more complimentary to the apples as well as the vanilla bean ice cream and honey I put over top!
