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…

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? …

Irish Apple Cake Recipe with Vanilla Custard Sauce

While some are having the time of their life, I’ll always remember St. Patrick’s Day as the day I moved to Chicago.  I was so excited as I began to approach the beautiful skyline of the city and then skuuuurt.  Dead. Stop. Traffic.  I didn’t realize it was St. Paddy’s Day weekend because I was too focused on moving up to Chicago, but dang did I get a rude awakening when I realized everyone was gathered down town drinking Guinness and taking in all of the local green river festivities.  Now that I’ve been settled in for 9 years I…

Turkey Sloppy Joe Recipe with Mozzarella and Pickles

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I had making these Homemade Sloppy Joe Sandwiches with Ground Turkey. I knew as the recipe was coming together that it was going to be a bomb flavor combo! It also brought back some great memories growing up in St. Louis.

Now because I didn’t want just the sloppy joes on a bun, you know I had to take it up a few…

Pineapple Cherry Tequila Slushy

This Pineapple Cherry Tequila Slushy encompasses everything I love about summer. When I was young we used to wait forever in line to get a huge juice loaded slushy from our favorite spot in town, Do Yourself a Flavor. It was this little shack in the middle of a parking lot, but dang was it good! What can I say I love slushy’s! To me this drink is perfect at the backyard bbq or while entertaining some guests on a warm summer evening. It’s fun, tasty and extremely versatile. I mean you could make a margarita slushy, a Texas Two-Step…

Any great drink starts with a premium spirit, which would categorize Lunazul Tequila to the T. In fact since making this drink I have noticed some of the trendiest restaurants in all of Chicagoland that have been pouring out this tasty Agave Blanco Tequila. As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to appreciate food and beverages in it’s natural…
