halibut in a ponzu

Ponzu Poached Halibut And Shitake

Once again, no real story behind this, just another Friday night. The wife brought home halibut and I thought I would make a Dijon crusted dish in the oven, but when I opened up the bag and saw super thin halibut filets, I knew that wasn’t going to fly. So I raided the fridge, pantry […]

Lobster Tail

Grilled Whole Lobster

I am wondering if maybe it is time to re-title this blog to something more along the lines of “Cooking With Kids” or “Daddy Day Care Meals”. Traveling has all but ceased and most of my free time now is pretty much consumed with occupying these young minds. And now that my son is getting […]

Pizza Burger

Pizza Burger – Homework Part Deux

Souffake! It’s a pizza burger! And another Souffake for trying to write a draft post on my mobile device and accidentally hitting publish! If you read the draft from your email inbox, rest assured, I did not have a stroke, I was not abducted by aliens, and, yes, I know better than to post a […]

Chocolate Souffle Flourless Cake

This Month’s Homework Project – Make Your Own Recipe: Chocolate Soufflé Meets Chocolate Flourless Cake

  The Kimm’s Chocolate Souffake          What happens when you try and mash up a flourless chocolate cake and a chocolate soufflé recipe? You get Souffake, of course. Just in case you are wondering why I would even do such a thing, it is a two part answer. First, the whole dairy thing. Second, apparently traditional […]

California Eggs Benedict

Mother’s Day Brunch- California Benedict

Happy Mother’s Day! I don’t think there is a better way to show how much you care about the Mothers in your life than to prepare a special meal in their honor. And what could be better than starting the day off with mimosas and eggs benedict? Taking it up a notch by making it a […]

Tortilla De Patata

Tortilla De Patata

I have never had the pleasure of actually traveling to Spain, but I have been lucky enough to be blessed with a sister-in-law that comes from Salamanca who knows a thing or two about tapas. Having her around has afforded me a glimpse into a food culture that I otherwise probably would have never known […]


Pho – Beef Noodle Soup

To say that I like Pho is probably a bit of an understatement. The fact is, I absolutely love the stuff! At least twice a week I go out for lunch to the local Vietnamese restaurant and order a bowl. I am actually proud to say that, at least according to Yelp, I am “The Duke” of […]

Hopping John

Hopping John By Kalen

A wise old lady once told me, “Thank God for delays and disappointments.” While it has been years since I have heard this, I have never forgotten these words. Initially, I chalked it up to the rants of a crazy old Creole lady, but over the years, this saying has proven to be fantastic words […]

Lamb Roast

Easter Feast – Spitfire Roasted Whole Lamb

While I have not officially created a bucket list, I have in my head a sort of culinary list of things that I would like to try before my time is through here. My list is a mix of eating at different restaurants like The French Laundry, trying ethnic cuisines in their respective countries, cooking […]
