Lamb Burgers

Before Miss Madison was born, I had an idea in my head of what life would be like post-baby… She would be napping a lot, so I’d have no problem preparing three meals a day and keeping the house clean.  I would have no need for battery-powered baby toys to keep her occupied, since I’d…

I’m all about simple and easy meals lately… I know that’s not usually my M.O. (that’s modus operandi for those of you not obsessed with Law and Order), but things have changed a bit around here. While I would love to be making homemade ravioli and spending hours in the kitchen making homemade puff pastry,…

Friday Favorites – Episode 94

Things are a bit slow around my house at the moment.  My husband is doing a great job helping me out in the kitchen, and I have even mustered up the energy to do a few (small) things myself. Baby steps! While I have managed to put a few dishes in the dishwasher, chop some…

Kitchen Bootcamp Roundup – Sandwiches

I hope everyone had fun with this month’s Kitchen Bootcamp challenge! I know that sandwiches may not have been the most challenging chapter in The Professional Chef, but I think it’s fun to do something different once in a while! For this month’s challenge, I developed two new sandwiches - Italian Panini with a Sundried Tomato and Olive…

Italian Panini with Tomato Olive Spread

Though it seemed like a great idea at the time, I’m not totally sure why I picked sandwiches for this month’s Kitchen Bootcamp challenge. The thing is, I’m not really a sandwich person. Some people can eat a sandwich for lunch every day, but I’m not one of those people, so it’s been a bit of…

Saucy Chipotle Burgers

If you’re thinking that I am crazy for posting a burger recipe the day AFTER Labor Day – after the official end of summer and one of the biggest grilling weekends of the year – you may be right… But let’s just say I’m a risk taker like that. Here’s the thing… I think that…

Kitchen Bootcamp Roundup – Salads

It’s that time again… Time to showcase everyone’s hard work for this month’s Kitchen Bootcamp challenge! I am so thrilled that so many of you took the time to participate and cook along side of me, especially because I rushed this challenge a bit to get it in by the end of the month.  It’s so…

Grilled Eggplant and Squash Caprese (Kitchen Bootcamp)

This month’s Kitchen Bootcamp challenge is flying by… In fact, it’s almost time for this month’s roundup.  I’ll be posting everyone’s Kitchen Bootcamp salads and dressings on Saturday, so you still have a few days to submit a post. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone’s been working on! In the meantime, I thought I’d…
