Lemon Herb Flattened Chicken with Root Vegetable Panzanella Salad

Let me first start by saying how much I’ve enjoyed creating these videos for you guys and this Lemon Herb Flattened Chicken with Root Vegetable Panzanella Salad may be one of my favorites.  I’ve only done a few of these long form videos, i.e. 10 mintues +, but still I like being able to share in more detail what and why I’m doing it instead of cramming so much cooking information into a 1 minute video.  No offense but I don’t carry any more about those and I’m not going to cook recipes that can be prepared in 20 minutes,…

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

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…

Southwest Turkey Burger with Guacamole and Chipotle Mayo

As a family we are always hanging out in the back yard and grilling up some delicious food!  In the summer time we like to try new things, like new bbq recipes or new burger recipes, so I decided to make an insanely delicious turkey burger.  I was looking for a little kick in the spice department so I whipped up a really tasty chipotle mayo, that honestly would have been ridiculously tasty with some fries, but instead I dumped it all over my burger J.  In addition, the the chipotle mayo I made a really good guac recipe to…
