  • Alex's Day Off

    Alex loves cooking for her friends. She makes one of her favorite dishes from the restaurant - a pan-fried pesto pizza with mozzarella and parmesan. Alex serves the pizza with a colorful bibb radish salad topped with bacon dressing. For appetizers, Alex serves beer battered shrimp wrapped in basil and topped with just the right hint of salt. She'll toast with her friends over a chilled apple cider drink with sparkling Cava wine.

  • Alex's Day Off

    Alex digs back into her roots and brings to life some of her favorite comfort dishes from her childhood. Alex starts with lasagna filled with creamy mozzarella and salty parmesan, then topped with a meaty Bolognese sauce. Alex serves it with the perfect partner -- wilted escarole with a pinch of chili flakes. For dessert, a dark rum pudding sprinkled with roasted almonds.

  • 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 has one dish that serves as her go-to recipe for any occasion - a simple roasted chicken. Stuffed with lemon and olives, this roasted chicken gets a little something extra once it pops out of the oven. On one side, Alex smothers it with butter and crunchy sea salt. Then, on that golden skin side, she smears a little dark olive tapenade spread. She pairs it with a chilled asparagus salad that is coasted with tangy mustard and honey vinaigrette. Then, Alex pops clams on the grill and sprinkles them with earthly charred zucchini, the perfect addition to the sweet clams.
