about me:

I have been cooking since I was three and putting dinner on the table since I was thirteen. I view food as a universal language. A few years ago I attended culinary school to earn my diploma in French Pastry Arts. I am a Graduate of L Academie de Cuisine. Well prepared food is a true joy of life.

favorite foods:

Seafood, fish, chicken, beef, pork chops, ham and bacon. Pasta is a biggie. Must haves are garden fresh fruits and vegetables. I adore frozen treats, French pastry, cakes, cookies, chocolate and pies. I do not care for hot, very spicy or extreme, unique foods. My palate is simple yet profound.

New Fried Chicken Wings

I've been frying chicken wings since age ten. I wanted to give my fried chicken a fresh prep, so I could see if incorporating a different ingredient would make a difference over using buttermilk. Sour cream won the day!

I was drinking a toast to Christy (my late kitty) and remembered I hadn't eaten. The beer and cherries gave me an idea, so I began grabbing ingredients and POOF! This is dedicated to little Christy.

Lemon Curd is a paste which resembles a hot marmalade. It can be made into a mousse by folding it into freshly whipped cream. It is used in tarts and tartletts and may be eaten alone. It is also used on top of shortbread cookies dough before baking.

Crepes Batter (Jam Filled)

star_onstar_onstar_onstar_onstar_off Comments (5)

Crepes can be used as hors d'oeuvres and in sweet and savory dishes. Better to prepare this batter the day beforehand, or hours before using…it is better rested as the flour must absorb the liquid. The next day adjust the liquid / mixture and add flavorings.

Shrimp Artichoke Pasta Marinara

Shrimp Artichoke Pasta Marinara

star_onstar_onstar_onstar_onstar_off Comments (2)

Shrimp, artichoke & pasta in a red sauce. Delicious and filling, with a side of grilled mozzarella sandwich. Note* Your seafood department usually has large steamed cocktail shrimp. These are perfect to use, because they are not overcooked and all you will be doing for this dish is heating them and adding the sauce on top.

A light, fragile, melt-in-your mouth cookie. Great for all occasions. We made these in Pastry class. Be sure to keep your hands wet when you roll the cookies into balls, otherwise it sticks all over your fingers. Fun to prepare.

    My wife is always wanting me to let her cook. She works all day and I work around here all day. Even when my business was at its peak, I still found time to cook, clean, do laundry and attend to the ‘fix-it’ list. That’s also along with rebuilding two bathrooms, a deck and a kitchen. Our agreement is that she can cook on the weekends.

    Last nights dinner was simple but good. Tonight, however, I have an official request; Pizza! My wife has been on a rather strict diet for about 8 months now. She and I both are dying for a pizza. I have been cooking to please her and keep her on track with her diet. So tonight, screw the diet! It’s pizza: A plain pepperoni and cheese for me and a white pizza for her; made from scratch.
