A December to Remember (December 6)

Most families like to stick to the traditional dishes and flavors during the holiday season. After all, food is family and old favorites are comforting.
But I like to change it up and stray away from the traditional and introduce new recipes and twists to old classics. So this year I'm bringing you...
Cranberry Brie Bites
Beef Braciole (
an American Italian dish of parmesan and bread crumb stuffed beef ) 
     with Garlicky Broccolini
Pumpkin Pecan Bars with Lemon Crumb Crust and Pecan Streusel

Restaurant Knock-offs featuring Tex-Mex Fast Food (January 17)
Taco Bell, is an American-based chain of fast food restaurants founded in 1962, but is also a guilty late-night pleasure! This famous restaurant chain brought Tex-Mex food to the masses and immediately found a loyal following. TB loves to constantly change their menu, sometimes taking away some of our favs in the process. So I'm going to bring back 2 of the classics! You'll sample...
Taco Bell Enchiritos
Taco Bell Mexican Pizza
Taco Bell Cinnamon Crispas

Potstickers, Spring Rolls, Egg Rolls Oh My! (February 7)
Three classics, perfect for any occasion, served in Asian restaurants around the world. Who knew a simple fried cylinder could bring together thousands of families and friends? This is the power of food! Its language is universal—understood and appreciated by all. 
Tonight you'll sample 3 of my favorite creations...
Fried Thai Spring rolls with Homemade Sweet/Sour Sauce
Eggroll in-a-bowl
Shrimp Potstickers

Tropical Twist (March 6)
Ya mon! we gonna try some recipes with a Jamaican/Caribbean flair! Fresh bold flavors and wonderful aromas make this a class not to miss. You’ll sample...
Jerk Chicken Egg Rolls with Mango-Habenero Sauce
Tortilla-lime Crusted Fish on bed of Lime-scented Arugala
 served with Homemade Tortilla Chips and Caribbean Salsa
Semi-homemade Jamaican Rum cake

Deep Dish Pizza and more...(April 10)
Even though I'm sure there are plenty of people who love deep dish pizzas, this food is controversial to other people. Since this pizza has a thick bread crust and is covered in copious amounts of sauce, some people think that it’s more of tomato pie and isn’t a true Neapolitan pizza. I, for one, refuse to take a side on this age-old debate and instead want to introduce you to a holiday called National Deep Dish Pizza Day. This day falls on April 5th annually (sorry, we just missed it, but you can celebrate anyway) and is sure to not only bring joy to deep dish pizza lovers but also disdain from those who oppose this food. Where do you fall in the deep dish pizza debate? I guess we'll find out tonight when I prepare...
Classic Pizza Shop Salad with Fried Salami and Italian Vinaigrette
Chicago-style Deep Dish Pizza
Gooey Deep-dish Individual Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ice Cream

Steak! (May 8)
May is National Beef Month and retailers everywhere offer great savings to boost their sales.  So now is the best time to expand your beef recipes from pot roast and burgers to something better!  I'm going to bring you a whole menu perfect for entertaining. You'll sample...
Shrimp Scampi Dip with Baguette Chips
Pan-Seared & Butter-Basted Steak
Sweet Potato Hash
No-bake Key Lime Parfaits
