Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

After husking six to eight corns rub with a little bit of olive oil and kosher salt and grill over high heat until they’re charred evenly on all sides. It would also work with boiled corn but of course it wouldn’t be as good. To serve simply douse the hot corn with the chipotle mixture and top with a handful of chopped cilantro. Double dipping is encouraged. Summer has begun!

Once you have your spaghetti boiling add some olive oil to a large pan over medium heat and cook the cauliflower mixture for 6 to 8 minutes stirring often. Before draining your pasta reserve a couple of cups of water, then drain and combine the spaghetti with your pesto adding the pasta water as needed to loosen the sauce. Serve with grated Parmesan.

Preheat your oven to 450 then line your sheet tray with parchment paper, they just don’t brown as well without it. Peeled or unpeeled, cut your sweet potatoes into quarter inch slices and toss in a large bowl with just enough oil to coat along with some salt, pepper, and paprika. Bake for approximately fifteen minutes, turn, and bake for another 10 minutes or until tender and golden brown.

Preheat your oven to 450 and wrap the center column of your bunt pan with a piece of foil making sure to completely cover the hole. Brush your chicken with a little bit of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and whatever other spices you’re working with such as granulated garlic, smoked paprika, or dried herbs. Stand the chicken up in the center of the pan by inserting the column into the cavity and roast for 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the bird. Rotate the pan 180 degrees halfway through. That’s it!
