Tom Foolery's Kitchen Antics and Good Eats

Pictures, recipes (by request), and commentary on my adventures in throwing together healthy, hearty, bold meals. We don't do bland food here.

One of my trademark dishes - Hasselbeck Scalloped Potatoes. The food science behind this dish is really cool. The heavy cream-thyme-garlic sauce only covers the bottom half of the upright potatoes, but as it cooks, the oil separates from the cream and starts to splash over the top half. This basically starts to fry the top half of the potato. So every potato slice gets a little crispy and a little creamy. Load it up with some asiago cheese, and it's a beautiful side dish.

Pesto-marinated chicken breast, rosemary and thyme fire-roasted tomatoes, and homemade alfredo over penne. Quick, delicious dinner. The tomatoes turn into little marinara bombs!

Beef Tenderloin in a thyme-butter-garlic sauce, Rosemary Garlic potatoes, and sauteed brocollini.

This is a quick-and-dirty on how to cook the perfect steak every time. He says in this one to flip often to cook evenly, and in another to flip only once to preserve flavor...not sure there's a hard and fast rule on it.

My favorite place in Lyon, France - Le Comptoir des Marronniers. In the birthplace of gastronomy, you know you're going to get some great eats! Gets me in the mood to get home and get to work in the kitchen!


What a beautiful Pot Pie. Most of Wolfgang's recipes are pretty bland (he's German, can't blame him for that), but this is great technique combined with great presentation.

Instead of polluting my personal timeline with pictures of food and meandering commentary, here's a little corner of the intarwebnets where you can check out my favorite hobby - making kick-you-in-the-pants dishes to serve with friends and family. Since I'm also a food safety microbiologist and food scientist, I may take the opportunity to educate on safe food handling and the geeky side of food preparation.

As one of my culinary heroes Jacques Pepin says, "Happy cooking!"
