Garlic and Herb Beef Tenderloin Recipe with Roasted Wild Mushrooms

<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> If there is one thing I am sick on Thanksgiving, it’s turkey.  I mean I’ve been eating turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas for the 33 years and I am OVER it!  For the past few years I’ve been trying up new things like a prime rib roast, or even smoking the turkey as opposed to the regular toss it in the oven at 6am and forget about it.  Thanksgiving is a day filled with thanks for all that we have, family, friends and food.  Food will always bring people…

Filet Mignon Recipe with Brussel Sprouts and Bacon

I recently was in Miami, or Ft Lauderdale rather, for ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) and did a couple of live demos showing off the Franke Chef Center while making this Filet Mignon Recipe with Brussel Sprouts and Bacon.  I made a total of 2 recipes between the 2 days I was there and the other one you can check out on my site at Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with Brandy Caramel Recipe. While the desserts always go over well during live demonstration settings, this Filet Mignon Recipe with Brussel Sprouts and Bacon by far stole the stage. With every…

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…

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…
