  • Alex's Day Off

    Alex tackles the great American pastime - making a serious sandwich. Ingredients are key for this turkey sandwich. It calls for roasted turkey breast, bacon, creamy dressing, and crisp iceberg lettuce. French fries get all the fame, but Alex thinks onion rings are really the overlooked side-kick to a sandwich. These beer battered onion rings come out crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. She finishes off the meal with another sandwich - an almond cookie ice cream sandwich!

  • Alex's Day Off

    Alex gets away from the idea of a classical meal and into something totally fabulous and fun -- a dessert party! Alex treats her friends to three amazing desserts. To start, a crispy and crunchy biscotti filled with hazelnuts and caramel. She adds a tangy lemon curd, which serves as the perfect dunking partner for the biscotti. Alex adds strawberry tartlets; they're like a giant fresh fruit candies. And for something a little naughty and decadent, Alex makes a super chocolaty pots de creme and tops them with homemade whipped cream.

  • Alex's Day Off

    Alex shows us a little chef-y secret for steamed fresh fish that requires a leap of faith. Branzino is drizzled with olive oil, herbs, and lemon. Then, it's wrapped in a little aluminum packet and baked in the oven. She tops the freshly steamed fish with a creamy garlic aioli sauce. Paired with a simple green bean salad this meal screams freshness. For dessert, Alex bakes an apple crisp with the perfect balance of apple to crispy topping. This apple crisp is like one giant corner.

  • Alex's Day Off

    All of your favorite morning dishes will be completely transformed by Chef Alex Guarneschelli. Alex slices thick cuts of bacon and dredges them in brown sugar and spices. It pairs perfectly with simple fried eggs and crispy toast soldiers. And, in an act of ridiculousness, Alex melts a wheel of cheese on a bed of crispy hash browns. For drinks, a muddled screwdriver makes it the perfect early morning breakfast.
