A large turkey will serve a crowd and it’s perfect for a make-ahead, slow cooker dinner.  For years, we have exclusively chosen turkey for Thanksgiving, or perhaps a large Passover gathering, but now, we’re serving it more and more. A few years ago I shared a recipe for turkey breast stuffed with apricots and quinoa which...

Have you ever eaten something, paused, and thought how your palette will never be the same again?  Wondered how throughout the years, no one had shared these flavors with you?  Realized in an instant, that this is a dish that you would serve over and over again? That feeling is rare.  But I found it....

It’s no secret that I have been a little off radar for the tail end of this year.  My family and I still eat well, but perhaps we entertain a little less.  I still love food, but my attention has been split.  I’m a little embarrassed to look at my recipe index and see how...

I’m struggling to write this recipe. All I can think about is how much I didn’t really like duck until I made this dish.  And at the same time, I think it’s bad form to introduce a recipe by telling you I don’t usually like the main component. But in the name of honesty and...

Back in April, I was spotlighted by The Nosher (thanks guys!) and I shared a recipe for a roasted eggplant dip. I remember the interview clearly; I enjoyed talking to Shannon and talking about everything from healthy eating to Kansas City BBQ. What I didn’t remember, was that I took all the photos to share my...

About a week ago, I was itching for meatloaf.  My wife hates meatloaf, and I love it.  At least that’s how we remember it going.  I did some research, picked a recipe, added my own touch and made meatloaf with a side of sweet potato fries.  My wife loved it, but I really didn’t.  Something...

I have always loved the Jewish ritual of Shabbat.  I’ve written about my ritual reset a few times and I really believe the chance to be present, and in the moment, for 25 hours is something that everyone should try. Some of my favorite memories have taken place on Shabbat which could be why so many of...
