Chicken breast that is pounded thin, sauteed quickly and topped with a shallot caper lemon wine sauce. It’s a light healthy dish depending on how much butter you add at the finish. Very quick to make and can be modified by switching stock for wine or garlic for shallots. Even adding thyme or basil can create a nice variation.

This is a great dish taught to me by a chef named Dion Calcutta many years ago. The creamy sage sauce with sausage and apples make such an exciting flavor combination.

This is unique in that it has no sour cream in it. It’s an old family recipe and my grandmother told me in the part of Hungary her parents were from they didn’t use sour cream. She also served it on the bone so eating was a bit of work but worth the trouble.

Cioppino over linguini

This is the NY version of a San Franciscan Italian seafood stew. They focus on crabs while I focus on a nice variety of seafood. It’s quick to cook once the seafood is prepped and guaranteed to please every seafood lover. You can make the sauce white or red and once in a while I make it pink with just lobster tails, shrimp and broccoli florets.
