Fried Catfish Tacos

With Spicy Sour Cream And Avocado Coleslaw

Posted on January 20, 2016
There's a bit of a story with these Fried Catfish Tacos With Spicy Sour Cream And Avocado Coleslaw. When I was a lot younger, back in my picky eater days, I was watching a show whose main characters were focused on a Mexican family and fish tacos. They were obsessed with fish tacos. I couldn't dream of ever contaminating my tortillas with fish! Fast forward many years, and I have to try making these tacos. What happened? I still remember the revulsion of my younger self. However, I am now older an adult and have more adventurous tastes. Right? Honestly, these were delicious. The fish was crispy on the outside, well seasoned inside. The coleslaw with cheese on top, ohhh and the cream sauce bringing it all together... It was fishy heaven wrapped in a tortilla. Or something. Eat it yourself. You will understand.

Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers

Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers

Sweet and Crunchy

Posted on January 13, 2016
Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers, there's a story behind this one. I have been a very lucky person. When I was younger, my father took me to Europe. We stayed in Paris for a couple of days before going to Euro Disney and then London via the Chunnel. While in Paris, we ate at a Planet Hollywood. I was horrified to see the chicken fingers, my go to meal was breaded with Captain Crunch, my all time favorite cereal. Back then I was picky. I have learned much since then. Ever since then, I have had that thought pop into my head periodically. Could I? Should I? Well I finally did it. I finally had enough bravery to give it a try. This recipe, these Chicken Fingers... Are. Just. Amazing.

Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice

Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice

Mmmm tasty

Posted on January 13, 2016
I had pulled chicken thighs with the intention of making Spicy Rice with Chicken instead of Haddock. The husband wasn't feeling it at all that night, so I cast about the kitchen looking for something else to make. Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice sort of leapt out of the pantry at me. The ingredients list was relatively similar, with some slight modification, but it was generally where I was going for dinner. It turned out pretty dang delicious too.

Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe

Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe

Full of flavor, loads of heat

Posted on January 13, 2016
Every year for the past four years I make hot sauce for Christmas gifts. This year, I was actually grilling and making the sauce on Christmas Eve! Just like in the past, I used fresh ingredients to create a boisterous sauce loaded with flavor and heat that the recipients just love. This Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe is another on my list of Hot Sauce recipes. This one is spiced with garlic, curry, and five different peppers to give you that wallop. This sauce is as flavorful as it is hot, with a smoky sweetness hidden in there too.

One Hour Maple Bourbon Ribs

One Hour Maple Bourbon Ribs

Finger Lickin' Ribs, Lickety Split

Posted on January 06, 2016
This is another recipe that happened due to a video shoot. We needed ribs for an accessory video and we had a lot of other things that needed doing that day so these ribs had to be done, and done fast. I am one who is loathe to waste food when it's unnecessary, so I had to make them not only look good but taste good too. One Hour Maple Bourbon Ribs are the result, and let me tell you, the result  is delicious. Check out this behind the scenes shot from Napoleon's Instagram account.

Grill Roasted Salmon

Grill Roasted Salmon

With Fresh Herbs & Feta

Posted on January 06, 2016
My husband ate a lot of fish growing up. I did not. At all. So, it's been slow going getting into the seafood thing, but we are getting there. As you can see, Salmon is my favorite and this Grill Roasted Salmon With Fresh Herbs & Feta was absolutely amazing. Fragrant fresh herbs and creamy zippy feta top a meaty salmon fillet. When served with some Crispy Roast Potatoes (just add some fresh dill and a squeeze of lemon) it's perfect.

Glazed Duck

Glazed Duck

With Spicy Fried Rice

Posted on January 05, 2016
A few weeks back I made Glazed Duck With Spicy Fried Rice for dinner. There's something about this Asian-inspired meal that marries the delicious spice of the rice with a sweet glaze on the duck for a meal that covers all of the bases. The rice is full of veggies so you don’t necessarily need to make more.  Although the more veg the merrier!  This is a very filling meal – one duck breast will feed you well.

Oatmeal, Cranberry, Bacon, Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal, Cranberry, Bacon, Chocolate Chip Cookies

Perfect breakfast cookies

Posted on December 22, 2015
Oatmeal, Cranberry, Bacon, Chocolate Chip Cookies came from a desire to make a slightly themed Christmas Brunch. Theme was Bacon and Eggs, but we weren't planning on a sit-down meal. Rather we thought we would make finger foods that we could enjoy while conversing and opening gifts. These cookies aren't overly sweet, but the smokiness of the bacon, tartness of the cranberries, and the hit of chocolate creates a symphony of perfect cookiness.

Homemade Sausage Rolls

Homemade Sausage Rolls

Fresh pork makes a difference

Posted on December 22, 2015
This year instead of a traditional Christmas Dinner, we're going to have Christmas Brunch with the family. We plan on putting on a big spread with Mini Quiche, Fresh Biscuits, fruit and cheese trays, Bacon, Cranberry, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, and of course these Homemade Sausage Rolls. We are definitely thinking outside the hotdog bun this year. These Sausage Rolls are made from freshly ground pork meat that we seasoned ourselves and you will love the results if you do the same.
