To start off, again it’s good to be back and making Soigne [swan-yay] recipe videos again for you all and I hope you are enjoying them, as well as this one for Pork Milanese with Spring Kale Salad Recipe.  If you missed last week be sure to check out Salmon Recipe with Lemon Butter Sauce, it’s a hit!  In these Soigne videos I’m trying to take super classic dishes, or even classic dishes with my own Chef Billy Parisi twist, and then putting them into super sexy (soigne) videos to show just how easy they are to make.  So many…

Pan Seared Salmon Recipe with Lemon Butter Sauce

I can’t even tell you how happy I am to be doing this Soigne [swan-yay] videos again.  I loved doing them back a few years ago but dang did I get busy in between then, and honestly just didn’t have the time.  Well, things have chilled out a bit and I’ve re-introduced the series with my bone-in ribeye steak recipe with whisky cream sauce a few weeks ago and am following up with this Pan Seared Salmon Recipe with Lemon Butter Sauce.  I know that these recipes may sound a bit on the elegant side but honestly they are some…

Smoked Country Style Ribs with Mustard BBQ Sauce and Texas Toast

First off, drop a comment below in the comments section and tell me your favorite bbq dish to eat for a chance to win a $50 gift card!! I’ve been having a ball the past 2 years whipping up delicious smoked goodies out on my smoker.  From smoked salmon, to chicken to pulled pork, I’ve been loving experimenting and of course eating all of it.  Something about being outside smoking food and then lighting up the grill to finish it off is just so therapeutic. The grill to me means spring, summer and fall, which in Chicago, means nice weather…

Oven Baked Sheet Pan Chicken Recipe with Vegetables

Not sure if you caught my Facebook live post the other day, but I actually prepped up this Oven Baked Sheet Pan Chicken Recipe with Vegetables while live.  The intent of the post was more around doing a Facebook Live since it had been so long and I figured I’d cook while on camera and chat all things food while doing it.  The sheet pan chicken craze online seems to be just about everywhere these days and the best way I can define it is it’s the new pot roast meal, only it’s quicker… Oh yeah, it’s chicken instead of…

Bone In Ribeye Steak Recipe with Whisky Cream Sauce

You’d most likely assume that I prefer grilling over searing when it comes to cooking protein.  Well you’d assume wrong believe it or not and it’s no different when making this Bone In Ribeye Steak Recipe with Whisky Cream Sauce.  Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love the flavors from the open flame but I feel that protein has the most opportunity to lose its juiciness and moisture on the grill.  Let me break it down for you.  When you season up a steak, or a bone in ribeye like this recipe, you then place it on the grill right? …

Smoked Chicken Greens Salad with Zucchini and Cilantro Lime Dressing

There are two things that I’ve really enjoyed preparing over the last year, making homemade bread and smoking food, see this smoked chicken recipe.  Making bread is therapeutic and delicious, smoking is time consuming and delicious :-).  I’ve only been smoking food for the last few years and up onto that point I didn’t have a ton of experience with it.  A lot of people just assume because I’m classically trained and logged a decade and a half in the restaurant industry that I know everything there I to know about all cuisines.  Sorry to pop that bubble but most…

Easy Falafel Sandwich Recipe with Lentils and Cucumber Salsa

I remember the first time I had falafel and thinking what odd flavors of ingredients am I eating?  I was in my teens so my palette hadn’t quite developed yet even thought I was already in the restaurant industry.  I never attempted to make falafel for some years later and when I did it I was blown away at how easy it was to make and how simple the ingredients were.  While making it I immediately remembered when I ate it for the first time several years prior and thinking why on earth did I think it was something crazy. …

Taco Salad Recipe with Chicken and Avocado Lime Dressing

When coming up with this recipe all I could think about was that weird taco salad rendition that you would get in elementary school from the cafeteria.  Truth be told it was my second favorite day of the month behind pizza day J.  Fast forward 25 years I decided to make my own, un-inspired from what I used to eat back in the day lol.  Don’t get me wrong, the classic tortilla shell with iceberg lettuce, ground beef, salsa, cheese and avocado is super good, especially if you’re craving some grease while trying to be healthy, yes I know the…
