  • potatoes COOKING WITH SIMON: Don’t forget about the Christmas potato

    Yes, that’s right if we can have a Christmas pickle, why not a Christmas potato? Potatoes are probably the most versatile ingredient in the kitchen, but we always cook them the same way.
    Whole baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, potato salad, roasted red potatoes – yeah, yeah, yeah – show me something else in the potato department.
    Lately, I have been making a lot of Dauphinoise potatoes. This potato dish is sliced very thin and layered with plenty of cheese, onions, cream and milk. It is one of my favorites.

    Food is about presentation, not just the recipe. And sometimes the plate or serving bowl holds as much importance as the food.

  • Beef & Mushroom Pie COOKING WITH SIMON: Warm up with a savory beef, mushroom pie

    We all love our sweet pies filled with fruit and cream filling, but there’s a lot to be said for savory pies, too. And usually the best savory pies are personal size, and completely wrapped in a pastry you can hold onto.

  • Beer Braised Steak COOKING WITH SIMON: Beef and Beer Equals Flavor

    When the weather begins to change from summer to fall I begin to crave all of my recipes for braised meat. As the weather cools down and we experience more rainy days, the smell of something cooking low and slow on the stove warms you body and soul.

  • simon pomegranate chicken COOKING WITH SIMON: Scary Fruit is a Sweet Delight

    Remember that scary movie from the 1980s where the little girl is staring in to a blank television scream and then turns to her mother and says, “They’re here.” We get a lot of blank stares from kids these days, but their staring at phones and IPods, not televisions.
    I am talking about the movie “Poltergeist” and no this recipe is not about ghosts. It’s about a scary fruit that some people are afraid to even and aren’t really sure how to eat.
