Chicken in Sweet-and-Sour Coconut Sauce

Chicken in Sweet-and-Sour Coconut Sauce

Tip for cooking with fresh coconut: when the internet says that you should be able to hear the coconut milk sloshing around inside of a mature coconut, you should listen to the internet. Otherwise you will spend ten bucks on a bunch of dried up and worthless coconuts from your local grocery, and have to […]

Super Bowl Recipe: Baked Hot Wings

Super Bowl Recipe: Baked Hot Wings

Last year in our first January in St. Louis Dr. Fiance and I tried to organize a Super Bowl party. After mentioning it several times our friends finally told us that unfortunately our television was just too small to accomodate a true Super Bowl party. Our television, which was enormous in our NYC apartment has […]

Farmer’s Style Bone-In Chicken Cacciatore Deconstructed

Last month I had an assignment from Sauce Magazine to photograph Paul Manno’s Cafe which was one of the tougher food shoots that I’ve done in a while, mainly because of the near-pitch black ambiance of the restaurant (works well for a stylish dinner, a bit challenging for photography). In addition to a review of […]

Superbowl and Cupcakes

Superbowl and Cupcakes

The day after the Superbowl is always a sad one for me, because it means that football is over until the fall. This means that I will no longer have an excuse to drink beer and eat badly on a Sunday morning (at least until I find a new excuse, that is). The funny thing […]

Chicken Rice Soup Recipe

I haven’t really left the house since Monday when we were supposed to have a three days of world ending ice and snow. I went out Monday morning after deciding that I’d better be safe than sorry and came back with four gallons of water and canned chili (which we could eat in the event […]

Chicken Lo Mein

Chicken Lo Mein

I love noodles. Specifically I love lo mein, chow mein, chow fun, mei fun, you name it. I like non-Asian style noodles too, but I can really dig Chinese take-out noodles like nobody’s business. Often when I get the hankering for noodles of this type I end up not being able to scratch that particular […]

Skillet Roast Chicken

I think that the thing about learning how to cook that is most interesting to me is my continued surprise when I make something delicious. I suppose that this stems from the fact that I’ve always made mediocre food a home, depending on others for most of my meals. Mainly restaurants. It doesn’t help that […]

Chicken Paillard with Clementine Salsa

It is really starting to feel like the holidays now, eh? We are deep in some December, there’s no turning back now. There was a couple of dudes outside the market yesterday pounding out carols by the Salvation Army bucket. I suppose playing a french horn is better than ringing that damn bell all day. […]

Stock Investment (Part 2)

Stock Investment (Part 2)

When we last checked in with Shoot To Cook I was researching recipes, shopping for chicken parts, and locating a pot of sufficient size to make stock. And what is our hero doing now? Trying to find the appropriate stock-making music. Can’t cook without music. Duh. For some reason the combination of 70s era cookbooks, […]

Stock Investment (Part 1)

Stock Investment (Part 1)

The more I time I spend reading cookbooks the more I’m starting to realize just exactly how many recipes call for stock. Even recipes that aren’t soup require the stuff, it’s like the crack of the food world. Cooks can’t get enough. So I’m going to have to figure this stock situation out. In the […]
