  • Alex's Day Off

    Alex is making a special birthday dinner for a really good friend. She wants to food to be simple, but filled with flavor. So, she's taking something she eats all the time at home and dresses it up in an evening gown so that it can come to the party too. For her, that's a chicken. A tangy marinated chicken marsala, coasted in breadcrumbs and butter, then baked crispy in the oven. To go with the chicken, a beet pasta tossed with a bright vinaigrette and colorful scallions. So tasty and beautiful. For dessert, Alex bakes a bright lemon cake and coats it in gloppy chocolate frosting.

  • Alex's Day Off

    Today, Alex is all about the little bites: hors d'oeuvres. She starts with pork spare ribs just glazed with a gooey soy and vinegar sauce that create the kind of finger licking you just need a million napkins for. Next, Chinese noodles mixed with a tangy dressing and topped with vibrant scallions. Alex calls this next dish her "oceanic french fry" -- fried squid and topped with a tangy lemon sauce. Plus, tender spears of asparagus blanched and tossed with sesame oil and sesame seeds. It's nutty, earthy, crunchy, and fresh.
