Butternut Squash Soup

Soup is not a meal (unless it's real Ramen or Pho) so let's just get that out in the open right now.  Nonetheless, this butternut squash soup came out so absurdly well that I would consider eating it as a light meal (or a hefty snack) with some toasted bread. I don't know what made... Continue Reading →

Tony’s Clam Shop Review

While in Quincy, MA, I drove by a couple of clam shacks on Wollaston Beach.  The logical result was a hankering for a lobster roll.  First thing I did, was search reviews for the best lobster roll in Quincy and the reviews seemed almost unanimous, that Tony's Clam Shop had the goods. I went to... Continue Reading →

Chicken Parmigiana (Chicken Parmesan)

It's time for a classic.  Chicken Parmagiana (or Chicken Parmesan, however you spell it).  I love this almost cliché dish.  It is the guilty-pleasure touchstone upon which I judge all Italian-American restaurants.  If a restaurant can't make a good chicken parm then there's something wrong.

Chicken Marsala

Shrimp Shumai and Veggie Stir Fry

Impress your lady friend with dim sum! A long time friend introduced me to dim sum in college and I've loved it ever since.  It wasn't until a little over a year ago that another friend told me that he made steamed shrimp shumai (dumplings) at home and sent me a recipe that I used,...
