London Briol Recipe

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

This is a simple recipe I use for baking a London Broil. What’s great about the London Broil is after you bake it, it’s good with potatoes, or in a steak sandwich, or thinly sliced over salad. This makes for great left overs for days to come. Prep time ~ 30 minutes

Intense Salad

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

I have been a fiend for salad lately.  A while ago my mother inspired me to make my own salad mix after I had some broccoli in one of her salads.  By itself, cold, uncooked broccoli is disgusting to me.  To make matters worse, when the broccoli is uncooked, that is when most of its nutrients are preserved (the more it is cooked, the less nutrients it is left with).  I have the same feelings towards the taste of carrots (I would rather eat them cooked as opposed to uncooked).  I have found however that diced broccoli, carrots and other vegetables, covered in salad dressing and mixed together comes out to be quite delicious.

Shrimp Chicken Pasta

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Shrimp Chicken Pasta – this is a rather involved dish to make but will easily top what you’ll find at the Olive Garden.  This Shrimp Chicken Pasta recipe is basically fettuccine with shrimp, chicken, clams and a lemon/garlic sauce.  This dish is considerably easier to make when you have a helping hand, otherwise doing it by yourself will easily take over half an hour.  Making the dish with your significant other and sharing it over a bottle of wine makes quite the romantic occasion :cheers: :

Nick The Chef Presents Chicken Fingers

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

I will try to do some more of these cooking/recipe posts.  I think having pictures to accompany a recipe is pretty nice so that you have an idea of what the stuff your cooking and working with is supposed to look like.  Last night I experimented with making chicken fingers. Here is a shot of my cutting board and chicken breasts:
