    It all started at my friend Anthony’s house not long ago during the beginning of the so-called polar vortex. He is a gifted home cook and a food television producer, so he knows his way around a pot. He also is from Texas and we share a love of tequila, barbecue and anything Tex-Mex!

    With this nonstop cold weather, I’m hankering for food that sticks to the ribs. How better to sate those cravings than with the official casserole of Texas, tamale pie? Typically made with ground beef, this recipe cuts the fat and calories by substituting lean turkey. I didn’t find the dish spicy enough, so next time I will probably increase the cumin and cayenne and also add a little chili powder.

    I’ve always been a big fan of eggplant Parmesan. There are a bunch of ways to make this classic Italian dish, but I’m partial to what you might call the full-fat version: thick slices of breaded eggplant that are sauteed, then baked until creamy, and finally topped with tomato sauce and melted cheese.

It sometimes happens, as it did one recent night when my wife took my son to music lessons and I happened to already be home from work. I had an hour all to myself, to do whatever I wanted!

    This Cuban-inspired dish uses a mix of fresh citrus juices to mimic the taste of a traditional sour orange ingredient. The combo gives the pork a tangy punch of flavor. Fresh orange segments are mixed in with the beans to add a citrus kick.

    Using sherry as a cooking liquid produces moist and tender chicken. Mushrooms and a little cream finish the sauce. It takes only minutes to make. This dish can be made ahead and re-warmed.
