Sausages Al Vino with Red and Green Grapes with a Red Wine Reduction

Sausages Al Vino with Red and Green Grapes with a Red Wine Reduction

It’s December, and we all know what December means, right? It means we can have martinis every night since it’s “the holidays!” It also means, of course, that we have all sorts of parties and such to attend and to cook for. In my case I am working on a menu for Dr. Fiance’s lab […]

Bread and Water

Bread and Water

Fall is turning into winter, it gets dark far too early, it’s cold and dark out. Yes, winter has started to creep into St. Louis. And as the wind whistles around outside, it is blowing through the empty halls of this blog as well. Sorry about that. What happened to me? What happened to November? […]

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 […]

I'm Back with Baguettes

I’m Back with Baguettes

On Friday I wrapped on the last shoot in a several week assignment that took me to Dallas, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Scottsdale and finally Silicon Valley. Before that another project had me on the road to DC, Raleigh, San Francisco, middle of nowhere Arkansas, and New York City. After the jet lag sorted itself […]

Lemon Lime Shortbread Cookies with Fresh Basil

Lemon Lime Shortbread Cookies with Fresh Basil

I like single serving foods, particularly single serving desserts. I don’t eat a ton of sweets as it is, and when I make something large like a cake or a pie, I end up eating too much of it at once or letting it go to waste by not eating enough of it. We are […]

Asian Broccoli Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

Asian Broccoli Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

Last week I had some friends over for some pulled pork and I made cole slaw to go with it. My recipe called for both red and green cabbage. The thing is, if you use two whole cabbages to make slaw then you have enough slaw for about fifty people. So I made half that […]

Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto

Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto

Sunday mornings are generally for sleeping late, coffee and the paper, maybe some football if it’s in season. When we lived in New York Sunday mornings often meant brunch out somewhere as well. It is perfectly acceptable in New York to have brunch at 12 or 1pm meaning there is no rush to get up. […]

Business Maintenance

The lady is out of town this week at a conference, and while I expected to do a lot of cooking while she was gone I’ve found that without her around to share the food I haven’t felt much of a drive to cook. Instead I’ve been eating like a bachelor. Lots of sandwiches (with […]

Oat Soda Bread

Oat Soda Bread

Soda bread. Sounds all old timey doesn’t it? Conjures up images of John O’Hara novels and aproned grandmothers in country kitchens. I’ve been making all of my bread from scratch these days (once you go home-made it’s hard to go back) but I have been sticking with yeast breads. I ran across a post over […]

Creating Sun on a Cloudy Day

Creating Sun on a Cloudy Day

Yesterday I spent some time testing some new lighting techniques (and tweeted about it) and got a number of inquires for more information about what I was doing. I have started to put together a longer post about some of the techniques that I am working on. But as I got into it I realized […]
