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…

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…

Lemon Blueberry Muffin Recipe with Chia Seeds

It’s that time of year again where the kiddos are heading back to school and the laziness of those long summer days subsides.  One of the things that’s always been a challenge is just getting our daughter to eat something for breakfast.  It’s one of those meals that offers like 3 things: eggs, oatmeal or cereal, and as you can imagine those options can get pretty old within about a month’s times.  To keep things interesting I try to change it up dramatically by making things like shakshuka or scaling it back for a guaranteed winner with things like this…

Zucchini Noodles with Pesto and Shrimp Scampi Recipe

One of our favorite things to make the past few years has been zucchini noodles.  If you’re often on Pinterest or Instagram then you’ve certainly seen the craze of zucchini, squash or even carrot or sweet potato noodles that have been filling your newsfeed.  Zucchini noodles are a fantastic alternative if you’re trying to avoid all the crabs or if you’re gluten free, plus you get all the benefits of eating vegetables.  The only thing you really need to do to make the effect is purchase a spiralizer.  It’s funny that zucchini noodles have become a think because I remember…

Spicy Grilled Shrimp Tacos Recipe with Papaya and Mango Salsa

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Bush Brothers & Company . The opinions and text are all mine. I’m doing everything I can to soak in every last second of this summer, which means I’m doing as many meals as I can outside on the grill. Don’t get me wrong I grill all year round, but it’s much more fun to do in shorts and a t-shirt instead of a winter coat and boots. On average I grill about 50% of the meals I create out on the grill throughout the summer, and this Spicy…

Homemade Salmon Cakes Recipe with Tartar Sauce

We just got back from Portland, Oregon and it is currently salmon season out there.  Since salmon is as abundant in Portland as Italian beef is here in Chicago, I made sure to overindulge in the local seasonal fare!  The fresh local caught salmon was literally 4 inches thick, no joke, and while I didn’t bring any home with me, it inspired me to make this Homemade Salmon Cakes Recipe with Tartar Sauce!  My wife who is not a salmon fan loved the salmon we had in Portland, so I figured I would try it again at home!   Fresh…

How to Make a Classic Ratatouille Recipe

One of my first experiences while working as a line cook at the age of 15 at one of my favorite restaurants in St. Louis was making risotto and ratatouille.  They were the staple side items that we often served up to accompany main entrees on the menu.  I remember everything from prepping the zucchini, squash and eggplant to the sautéing of the vegetables and then finishing it off with herbs and cheese and sending it out the door to dining room guests.  I’ll forever cherish those foundational moments of my culinary journey. While my first restaurant experience opened the…
