Texas Red Chili – Sort of

I prefer to add a small amount of beans and tomatoes, even though that’s not really what Texas Red Chili is. This is not an authentic Texas Red Chili, but more of an inspired-by recipe.


Neapolitan Pizza

Dick is pretty picky about pizza. This recipe, only slightly modified from Modernist Cuisine, is his go-to for pizza. For best results, make sure you have the proper equipment: a baking steel, pizza peel(s), and a super hot oven.

Mango Puree

Fresh mango puree can be used in so many ways… mango raspberry trifle or spicy mango margarita just to name a couple.


A standard custard recipe that can be served alone or used an ingredient in another rich dessert.


Spicy Sour Cherry Chili Sauce

This spicy, fruity sauce could have so many applications. Pictured above it’s atop swordfish steak, but it pairs well with so many meats, as a dessert topping (think ice cream or chocolate cake), or even as a compote on a cheese slate.
