How to Cook a Holiday Ham for Easter or Christmas

Never baked a ham for Easter before? Never fear. This guide will help take the mystery out of shopping and baking the perfect ham for the holidays.

County Fair Special: Homemade Corn Dogs

Corn dogs are one of those great polarizing foods: Peeps either love 'em or hate 'em. Me? Call me a savage, but I need once like once or twice a year, usually in the thick...

Spicy Roast Turkey Breast with Honey Butter Glaze

OK, I've had a zillion requests for this, mainly from my Homemade Deli-Style Roast Beef recipe. That's this thing here (if you like roast beef, I highly recommend it, both for flavor AND cost cutting...

Pigs in Blankets with a Twist

  There's just something about a pig in a blanket. Maybe it's because they make us feel like we're 8-years-old again. Maybe they remind us of the BEST SUMMER EVER when we were teenagers. Regardless. I've seen these...

Maple Whiskey Chicken

Grab a fork and put on your fat pants. This is one of my favorite, super indulgent, weeknight chicken dishes. I'm the first one to admit that this will never be called health food. It's chicken...

Roast Goose: Two Recipes (Plus, What To Do With a Smoked Goose)

Restaurant-Style Prime Rib Roast

Prime Rib: It's not just for Christmas dinner. I'll make this whenever I can get my paws on one at a good price (or the rare super sale). It's a great excuse to have a party. In fact, if you're sick of ham on Easter, consider giving Roast Beast it's day in the (springtime) sun. This is a restaurant technique that’s practically guaranteed to produce a moist, juicy, evenly cooked roast beast. And it couldn’t be simpler.

Roasted Scallops Wrapped in Prosciutto

I'm pretty sure I'd be tempted to eat almost anything if you wrapped it in bacon or prosciutto. This is my take on the classic appetizer, bacon wrapped scallops. This recipe swaps in prosciutto, bacon's paper thin, salty cousin, which practically guarantees that your scallops will always come out of the oven wearing a crisp little coat.
