The Book is Done! (And for sale…)

Introducing “Beyond the Red Sauce.” A labor of love that is finally complete. And of course that means your long-awaiting chance to order this culinary masterpiece is also at an end. Go on over to my site, and order yourself (and all your friends, family members and people you hardly know) a copy today! Looking [...]

I Have Proof!

The physical proof of my cookbook arrived today. This has been a source of serious consternation for me since I have spent much of the last weeks emailing my designers furiously asking them to please put a move on things to keep up with the deadline I gave them a few months back. The last [...]

Indexing the Cookbook: From “A – Apple” to “Z….” ummm… “Zapple”?

Editing is mainly done, and that’s a big part of why I haven’t been writing as of late here to the blog. Sure, my wedding was a big part of why I’ve been absent as well, (it was wonderful) but with respect to the work I’ve been doing at the computer, it’s been all editing, [...]

Artwork for the Book

Well it has indeed been a while since I posted here, but only because I’ve been swamped with both cooking classes as well as the final editing stages of the book. It’s amazing how much work it takes to run through a cookbook, and finally releasing the manuscript to the designer is one of the [...]

Cooking a Pork Shoulder

I would have been really upset if I couldn’t include this recipe in my cookbook. Please don’t think it’s because I hate tomatoes! I LOVE tomatoes!!

It’s time for an update on the cookbook. I’ve been giving you all a lot of recipes as of late, and I’m not against sharing that, but I think occasionally I need to remind you all of the progress on the cookbook. Simply put, the manuscript is over 100 recipes, and it is with the [...]

The Recipe Box

An antiquated version of keeping all of one’s personal recipes together in one place, the recipe box is still a term widely used by all chefs as to where they go to find their own list of ideas, creations and notes on what works and what doesn’t. I would keep them like this, but my [...]

Blind Gnocchi Taste Test

Don’t they look awesome?!? I really have to make an effort to be sure that this cookbook of mine gets written, but starting a new business seems to be getting in the way of course. This cookbook isn’t going to write itself, that’s for sure, but all the same, I don’t want it to be [...]

So, What Am I Doing Now?…

I guess the main question you all want to know is what am I currently up to? If I were to fill in the blanks of everything I have done in the past 16 months, that would take quite a while. I promise I will tell most of that story, but it’s such a daunting [...]
