Toasting spices

Another really quick tip for you! When you have a recipe that calls for a spice being toasted, I will show you how to do so and explain why you want to do this, and to do it even if it doesn’t call for the spice to be toasted.

“Chicken” Marsala in a butter sauce

For many of my years as a chef I worked at Italian restaurants, and one of the most popular dishes was Chicken Marsala. It was usually either made in a heavy cream sauce or a butter sauce, I personally enjoyed the butter sauce more, and I have veganized it for you.

Fried potato skins and Vegan cheese sauce

Today I will be making fried potato skins and a super easy base for cheese sauce. You can add some jalapenos, or spicy salsa, or cayenne pepper, oregano, and chili powder to make it more spicy for some great nacho sauce if you would like, or just about anything else to make it yours. Yum!!

Moraira, Spain

​Today I am going to show you something just a bit different than usual. In 2013 and 2015 I ​traveled to Spain. I decided to make a few videos of my travels there. I made them in a tourist/travel guide type format. This is the first video I made, it is of the little village I stayed in when I was there. Moraira. Watch this fun video to be introduced to this charming little village known as Moraira in Costa Blanca Spain. An hour away from Valencia and Alicante it is the perfect place to spend your holidays and get away from the cold.
​I hope you enjoy this video, you fall in love with Spain as I did, and you want to see more. ​
