Lemon Electrolyte Water


By adding a few simple ingredients to your water you can transform it from rehydrating to replenishing. We deplete a lot of the nutrients in our body when we exercise/work hard. The easiest way to replenish these nutrients is to drink them! Electro water is also great for replenishing nutrients after a hardcore night out. I added some fresh lemon, as well as some cucumber and basil to spice it up a bit. But ...

Braised Belgian Endive with Lemon and Tarragon


I will admit (way) back in culinary school I had no idea why anyone would ever want to braise Belgian endive. "It's just lettuce." I thought. Then over my many years of cooking I've realized endive is so much more than "just lettuce."

First of all, it's not just lettuce. It's in the chicory family, the same type of green as frisee, raddichio, and escarole. Chicory...

Jerk Grilled Chicken Thighs with Melon Salsa


My Father has been grilling Jamaican Jerk Chicken for me ever since I can remember. I will say this time, and time again, that Jerk Chicken is responsible for me becoming a chef. My obsession with the unique flavors still lives to this day. While this recipe is not a full Jamaican Jerk recipe, it satisys most of the flavor combinations. The best part of course, is this is a quick dish to m...
