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…

Homemade Pizza with Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe

If you haven’t noticed by reading my blog billyparisi.com, I love pizza.  No, like I really love pizza and especially pizza dough.  Whenever I travel to other cities I do my best to research and identify that city’s best pizza and then go try it out.  Out of all the places I’ve traveled to or have lived in, Chicago, New York, St. Louis, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles, I still have a favorite pizza place and it’s where I went to college.  The university of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri has the best pizza joint of all time, Shakespeare’s.  It’s so…

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,…

Vegetable Quesadillas Recipe with Chipotle Ranch Sauce

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of BUSH’S® Beans. The opinion and text are all mine. I have a family that loves a variety of flavors and options so when we make quesadillas they get exactly what they are looking for.  Quesadillas are so versatile as you can literally put anything you want in them, so when I made this Vegetable Quesadillas Recipe with Chipotle Ranch Sauce, it was almost like making a quesadilla buffet and letting my family choose whatever they want to put in them.  After all, it’s always more fun to have an…

Garlic and Herb Beef Tenderloin Recipe with Roasted Wild Mushrooms

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 together and it’s good it just makes the day that much…
