Chef's Hat: Mini pies are all the rage
There's something special about having a whole pie to yourself - even if it is a mini pie. You can honestly say, "I ate the whole thing all by myself!" Mini pies are also a great dish to take to parties or family get-togethers because there is no cutting required. These pies can be...

Chef's Hat: Don't hesitate to use that forgotten broiler in oven
A few weeks ago I was discussing recipes with a friend and I was surprised to hear that she had never used the broiler in her oven. I don't know if it's because I'm short on time or because I find broiling an easy cooking method, but I use my broiler once or twice a week. Broiling...
