As everyone starts to get into holiday mode with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought now would be an appropriate time to do a post on an often overlooked and underutilized but so very important component of a successful Thanksgiving dinner: stock. Stock is the very first recipe we made in culinary school.  Before

The cool mornings, warm days and chilly nights of Autumn have descended upon the Chicago area, which means I am switching into soup mode.  There’s nothing better than coming home to a warm pot of soup on a beautifully crispy Autumn evening.  This creamy and rich soup is perfect for such a night.  It’s loaded

This potato salad recipe is actually my mom’s “secret” recipe that we used to have all summer long when I was growing up.  So much so that I came to take it for granted.  I never realized how good I had it until I got married and my wife’s family had this potato salad for

My posts have been pretty inconsistent lately with the arrival of our third son, Emmett David on May 23.  However, I promised myself this would be the week that I would get back into my routine.  Fortunately, even though I haven’t been posting, I still have been cooking.  I have a handful of recipes that

I love using a leftover holiday ham bone to make split pea soup, but I was in the mood for something a little different after Easter this year so I came up with this Potato, Ham and Bean soup.  Simmering the ham bone in water transforms plain, old tap water into a richly flavored broth,

I love a good classic meatloaf but what I love even more is these individual muffin tin meatloaves.  They’re not only a hit with kids but they also cook up faster than a traditional loaf.  Most often, I use ground turkey when I make meatloaf, but you can substitute ground beef if you’d like.  They’ll

I made these short ribs for a private dining client a few weeks ago.   The recipe is a little time consuming but certainly easy and  approachable enough for any home cook.  I used one of my favorite cooking methods in this recipe, braising.  Braising basically means taking a tougher cut of meat, browning it in a

My wife asked me the other day why we haven’t been eating as many soups this winter as we did last and frankly, I wasn’t sure why.  I love a big pot of soul-warming soup as perfect end to a weekend or as a quick weeknight meal.  There are so many different variations of soup

This hearty and creamy chowder is perfect when you’re craving something to fill your belly on a cold winter day.  I used lobster from two, cooked lobster tails that I picked up at my local grocery store. They were $6 each and well worth it.  If you can’t find pre-cooked lobster or are looking for
