Welcome back to another weekly episode of Soigne!  What I am dying to know is how on earth is it October already?  I mean what the crap happened to September, or the summer for that matter?  Time is just ticking along and before you know it, I’m going to be buried in snow up to my behind trying to shovel my way out one smoked pork butt at a time!  Well enough of the jibber jabber and let’s get right into these Bone In Pork Chops with Onion and Apple Butter Recipe.  Talk about SIMPLE, I mean this recipe could…

Char Siu Skirt Steak Recipe with Sweet Garlic Udon Noodles

So happy to be back this week kicking off another video recipe with this Char Siu Skirt Steak Recipe with Sweet Garlic Udon Noodles.  I know, I know I can do some crazy things in this video, but really since my whole site is about “Simple Creations, Chef Inspired” I feel like I have to bring some of that culinary goodness that I grew up on and went to school for.  Yes, I like the easy weeknight meals too for the family, but when I do these “Soigne” videos I try to bring my culinary chops with’em!  Hopefully you won’t…

Oven Roasted Whole Curry Chicken with Vegetables and Rice

Now that school is back in session I’ve been looking to get more creative with simple to prepare meals.  Not that I wasn’t before, it’s just that I had a lot more time during the summer because there was no urgency around exact times to eat dinner.  Now that my daughter is in school I’m all about convenience and bold flavors, which can sometimes be difficult to do.  While most people think simple and delicious should be done in under 30 minutes, I lean more towards an hour or less except of course when it comes to braising things in…

Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with Brandy Caramel Recipe

It’s September, so it’s time to say goodbye to fresh berries and welcome in apples and pears.  By the time the summer is over, I’m ready to switch over to the next seasons produce so I have no problem moving into fall and winter.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like winter, but I have no problem eating the fresh vegetables and fruit that it produces.  Since we are in the apple season, I thought it would be super cool to make some single serving Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with a Brandy Caramel Recipe.  I like the idea of a…

Homemade Italian Wedding Soup Recipe with Moroccan Cous Cous

I say it all the time, but soup is hands down my favorite thing to make across any cuisine, cooking technique, or course.  This Homemade Italian Wedding Soup Recipe with Moroccan Cous Cous is as classic as it comes with a small twist using some baby spinach and the smaller cous cous.  One of my favorite things about soups is how incredibly versatile they are with the opportunity to swap out or enhance a few ingredients without skipping a beat in the flavor category.  Often times changing out ingredients in soup can make things better and more customizable for someone’s…

Homemade Lobster Tortellini Recipe with Brown Butter

Dude! Whoa! Holy Smokes!!  This Homemade Lobster Tortellini Recipe with Brown Butter is R.I.D.I.C.U.L.O.U.S.  I know there is a lot going on in this video and it seems like it may be more difficult than it actually is, but I promise stick with me because this is way easier than you may have though, and honestly it only took 2 hours total to make.  Yes, if you aren’t used to cooking than 2 hours can seem a little long, but when you are making some pretty cool elegant meals then that’s really not that bad at all.  When I do…

Chicken Cassoulet Recipe with Chicken Sausage

There are few recipes I enjoy in this world more than Chicken Cassoulet.  It is everything that’s good and right in cuisine.  It’s incredibly comforting, hearty and meant to graze upon all day long, and the best part is that it’s actually incredibly easy to make.  The first cassoulet recipe I ever made didn’t actually even have chicken in it, it had duck which is a bit more traditional French.  Duck is one of my favorite things to eat, but I’m a little hesitant because I’m not sure the family would enjoy it quite as much as I would, so…

Homemade Rose Apple Pie Recipe with Cinnamon and Streusel

I’ve been dying to make an apple pie like this for the longest time, but again finding time to do it is always impossible.  Since I want to do a lot more videos on my site I’ve made it a point to put it on my calendar once a week just to make sure that I follow through with it.  My daughter started school last week and the stressers of that alone has been beyond overwhelming for me.  To be honest I’ve been getting migraines for the first in my life and I’m not sure if it’s work, or my…
