I love to cook.  More than that, I love to eat.  So its very easy to make the jump of combining the two loves into one big fat delicious LOVE.  Here you will find some great recipes for dishes like Steamed Mussels, Chicken With 40 Cloves of Garlic, Pumpkin Soup, Roasted Fennel with Anchovies and Sambucca, Blueberry Pancakes.  You get the picture, good stuff!  You can post a recipe too and together we can be chefs of the city (or the country if that is where you live).  Also, I'll be telling you about some of my favorite restaurants around town.  So enjoy!

Cast Iron Pan Seared Rib Eye Steak!

Rib eye steak is one part of the great steak trifecta, rib, New York and Filet, and in my opinion is the best.  Because when you sear it right, its tender, its juicy, its well, delicious!  It goes well with a bold red wine, or an icy beer or a glass of burbon.  And good company.  Enjoy.  And if you want to give it a special loving treatment while its resting after the pan, put a pat or two of butter on top and let it melt in.  An old school trick from the days of the Rat Pack.  


Crispy Chicken with Shallots!

This chicken recipe is sooooo good!  You must make it.  Seriously. 


Dill Sauce Aioli Rivera!

You must make this simple dill sauce.  Seriously.  Its amazing on fish, steamed vegetables and slathered on crusty baguette.  And it takes all of 15 minutes.  Enjoy!


New Year's Prime Rib Roast!

You like prime rib?  You'll love this, I know I did!


Urban Roast Chicken!!

This my friends is something you should make and enjoy, especially in the Fall/Winter season.  Its a French style roast chicken that is to die for.  Its so savory and retains all of its moisture as well as having a crisp skin.  Enjoy!
