Gluten Free Baked Chicken Parmesan


I dream of Chicken Parmesan. At our favorite local Italian spot, it is always a toss up between the Chicken Parmesan and Chicken Milanese. The crispiness of the breadcrumb and cheese coating topped with marinara is hard to beat and it’s equally tough... (more...)

Thai Turkey Meatballs


When we visited Thailand in 2013, we experienced many different flavors from the Kaffir lime leaves to the bitter eggplants. Since we live adjacent to NYC, we are spoiled that we can find many of these ingredients locally including freshly made coconut... (more...)

Cocoa Kissed Pressure Cooker Short Ribs

Savory Waffle Bison Burger


Dana asked me where I got the idea for this, and it is kind of a funny story.  When I was walking our labradoodle, Madison, I was thinking about what to make for dinner: Chicken and Waffles. The only issue is that I didn’t have time to slow cook... (more...)

German Bratwurst with Caramelized Onions
