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…

Hickory Smoked White Chicken Chili Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BUSH’S Beans. The opinions and text are all mine. There are few cooking techniques I’ve enjoyed lately more than the art of smoking food. Not only does the food come out so flavorful, tender and juicy, I literally get a standing ovation from my neighbors from the wonderful smells that fill our block. Smoking food is one of the oldest forms of cooking, and it was mostly used to preserve meats since back in early centuries of the world there was no refrigeration. Nowadays it’s used to incorporate delicious…

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…

Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with Brandy Caramel Recipe

It’s September, so it’s time to say goodbye to fresh berries and welcome in apples and pears.  By the time the summer is over, I’m ready to switch over to the next seasons produce so I have no problem moving into fall and winter.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like winter, but I have no problem eating the fresh vegetables and fruit that it produces.  Since we are in the apple season, I thought it would be super cool to make some single serving Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with a Brandy Caramel Recipe.  I like the idea of a…

Homemade Italian Wedding Soup Recipe with Moroccan Cous Cous

I say it all the time, but soup is hands down my favorite thing to make across any cuisine, cooking technique, or course.  This Homemade Italian Wedding Soup Recipe with Moroccan Cous Cous is as classic as it comes with a small twist using some baby spinach and the smaller cous cous.  One of my favorite things about soups is how incredibly versatile they are with the opportunity to swap out or enhance a few ingredients without skipping a beat in the flavor category.  Often times changing out ingredients in soup can make things better and more customizable for someone’s…
