Patacon Carne

Slow cooked beef, deep fried plantain, sauteed veggies, cilantro cream, red cabbage, avocado... Venezuelan street food at it's best! This meal will take you a little time to prepare, but I promise it's worth it. If you've got a crockpot, and I'm sure you do, you'll be enjoying these fresh flavors in no time! 

Soy Glazed Salmon w/ Pink Rice

Butter and soy sauce are incredible friends. If you've never introduced them to each other in your kitchen, then you need to stop messing around, and go try this recipe. You won't be sorry, I promise. Grab some fresh farm-raised salmon, and get ready to pan-sear that sucker. I used pink Madagascar rice, but really any rice will do! 

Pork Belly Bao Buns

Asian street food is hard to beat. Thick, syrupy sauce on crispy pork belly that's been salted and seared. A few pickles for the crunch, and a little acidity to balance out the sweetness. And a steamed bun. What are you waiting for? 

Rustic Minestrone w/ hand-cut pesto

So America has really destroyed the idea of Minestrone. This Italian masterpiece has a few tricks up it's sleeves though, and I'll help you discover them here. 

Pan Seared Salmon w/ Radish & Asparagus

It took me awhile to fall in love with salmon, but what I discovered is that most of the time it is overcooked - which turns it fishy real quick, and you lose the beauty of the fish itself. Not so here. In this simple dish, the salmon is the star and everything else shines the light on what it really SHOULD taste like.

Alder Smoked Swordfish w/ Avocado Crema

I love my smoker, and I love seafood. I also really enjoy Mexican cuisine. When you combine the three, you get an amazing appetizer, fit for any ocean loving human. The secret in this dish is the two types of smoke - alder & chipotle. 

Banana Miso Butterscotch Tartlet

Miso: sweet, salty, savory - it's umami! Which makes it so incredibly versatile. Even in dessert. Trust me - if you like salted caramel, you'll love this miso butterscotch. 

Southern Italian Polenta Lasagna

With the trend of Gluten free meals - which I realize is a necessity for many - you end up feeling like you lose out on some serious comfort food. Lasagna is a good example. But this recipe is not an answer to the need for gluten-free - it's a beautiful, hearty regional dish that stands on its own two feet. While also being GF ;)
