Lemon Chicken Piccata + Reverse Hollandaise

Lemon Chicken Piccata + Reverse Hollandaise

Lemon Chicken Piccata + Reverse Hollandaise | It was the best day ever. It was summer. I was sitting at a small white table under the shadows of a tomato orchard, at a cliff-side restaurant on the Amalfi coast. And what was on the plate of food in front of me?  Veal. A Veal Piccata to be exact. It was simply ridiculous. Full of lemon and fresh flavors. I could have had 15 of them. This recipe is a nod to that experience, to that place, that I would sell my soul to get back to (well not really, but you get the idea).

Heartburn Chili Sloppy Joes

Heartburn Chili Sloppy Joes | It’s official. I just renamed Bruin, “Chili”, because this chili recipe has stolen a place in my burning heart. It’s so good, yet so bad for you, but who cares at this point. It’s October. By far the best month of the year. Football is already here. The World Series is in full swing. Winter is coming. How can you not love this month. So this is a tribute to all the October chili lovers out there…don’t wait to make this one.   

Sweet Pork Medallions + Butter Beans

Sweet Pork Medallions + Butter Beans

Sweet Pork Medallions + Butter Beans | What’s your favorite part of a pig? Bacon? We love our bacon too, but that’s not our prized cut. That title belongs to the Tenderloin. If you treat her right, she is just darn amazing and not too hard on the wallet either. She’s like the Neiman’s of pork on Black Friday. And she only gets better after a brine bath and a dose of our sweet sauce potion.

Andouille Cheese Dogs

Andouille Cheese Dogs | Man, if this isn’t comfort food, than I don’t know what is. This is silly good, and for a guy, the equivalent of eating a pint of ice cream after watching Ryan Gosling anything. In this recipe we smother spicy andouille sausage in a 3 cheese mustard sauce and serve it…

Cream Poached Pork Sliders

Crispy Airline Chicken

Crispy Airline Chicken

Crispy Airline Chicken | If you’re a reader of this blog, you know I tend to reminisce about my glory days as a member of the Sharks growing up in the mean streets of Boston. Ok that’s a joke, I never joined a gang and I grew up in the suburbs, but we did get into the city to see the sights once in a while. And one of those sites stands proud at Park Plaza, the old Hotel Statler. And you know what this place was famous for? Its fancy “Statler Chicken,” which was a chicken breast with the first wing joint attached (aka the drumette). Soon it became a hit, and the airlines started serving them up in the 60’s when people thought it was ingenious to smoke on planes, and that’s how they adopted their better known name today, the “Airline Chicken.”

Happy Hour Chicken Nuggets

Happy Hour Chicken Nuggets

Happy Hour Chicken Nuggets | When I was kid in North Andover, Massachusetts, I used to eat chicken nuggets everyday for breakfast. And I mean everyday. It was the true breakfast of champions. Or it was just plain weird and I have no idea why my parents let me do it. I used to go through one of those giant frozen bags and a bottle of BBQ sauce by sunset, only to rise again the next day to depopulate the chicken world. I’ve since changed my breakfast menu (in case you were wondering), but that doesn’t mean I still don’t get nostalgic about my nuggets. And when I do, we go all out in my kitchen.
