Watch: This Dad Can Cook!

The dinnertime struggle of working parents is real: You have limited time and often a limited budget, and you’re cooking for an audience of outspoken, pint-sized food critics whose palates are less than exemplary. James Briscione knows the feeling — he might be a chef and culinary instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education by day, but at night he’s just a regular dad trying to get dinner on the table.

In his new online series for Food Network, James shares his tips, tricks and solutions for eliminating dinnertime drama and cooking family-pleasing meals in a pinch. In Episode 1, he whips up an easy Flank Steak Stir-Fry, making adjustments to the meal so it can feed the entire family (picky eaters and all!). He’s a pro at getting his kids in on the action to help with meal preparation and get them pumped about tasting new things.
