This sauce is so tasty! It’s sweet and spicy and everything nicey. I eat this sauce with egg rolls, lumpia, chicken tenders, mac and cheese… almost anything really. This is a great way to use any extra jalapenos you have laying around too. Toss all of your ingredients in a blender, allow the sauce to [...]
Le sigh… it’s been a very hot summer. Even still, I feel like it’s flown by. It’s almost the end of Summer now. Do you know what that means? It’s almost the end of zucchini season too. Say a little prayer for these guys and devour ‘em. Zucchini alone can be a bit bland. They’re [...]
To get restaurant quality Hollandaise sauce is a little tricky. The emulsion of egg yolks and butter that has dated as early as the 17th century is not something that comes easy to the novice chef. Hopefully with these tips, you’ll crank out the perfect Hollandaise sauce in your own home. The most important part [...]
Now that the holidays are over, everything is coasting back to normal. I still enjoy pajama time on the weekends, I still refuse to go to the store because they are too busy (I’m an avid online shopper), and finally I still enjoy time spent in front of a grill. I absolutely love this marinade recipe [...]
My ever growing list of things that I dislike about HOA’s They don’t like the fact that I had my bike stored on my patio (where else am I going to store my bike, in my bathroom?) They don’t like grills, especially my beautiful 3-burner grill, on patios either. Something about a fire hazard? Yadda, [...]
Please read this document regarding garlic-in-oil mixture safety before continuing. Who needs a stake to ward off evil vampires when you can dump garlic-infused olive oil all over them instead? If only Buffy had been more domesticated. Other reasons why you should roast garlic cloves in an entire bottle of extra-virgin olive oil: Garlic makes just about [...]
Nothing says summer to me more than a fresh mango salsa. I could eat this by itself, but I prefer to scoop some onto a nice piece of grilled fish or chicken. I love this flavor combination. Unfortunately, this is not something you can make ahead of time. Even after a day the salsa will [...]
Okay, so I don’t really speak German. I barely got by in my Spanish classes in high school. Good thing I am an avid Google translator user. Wha-bam! If you don’t know what schnitzel is, you really haven’t lived. Schnitzel is almost as fun to say as it is to eat. Almost. This dish is [...]
As my good friend Willis would say, “It’s all about the saauuuuuuwwwwwssss!!” Amen brother. This is one of the best marinara sauces I’ve ever tasted. Making a red sauce from scratch is really easy to do too! Canned sauces can be just as good but you usually have to spend quite a bit more [...]
At first I had no idea what “Divan” meant. I originally thought it was a specific way you prepare the dish, like a souffle or to sauté. After researching online, I still don’t really know if it has a meaning outside of being a dish consisting of chicken, broccoli and cheese. Either way, those three [...]
Spaghetti and meatballs is an adored meal from my childhood. My single mother worked hard and often to provide for us and didn’t have a lot of extra time to cook. When she did find some time, spaghetti and meatballs was always a favorite dish. There are so many different recipes out there for meatballs [...]
Use the drippings from your beef roast or turkey if possible. Otherwise, you can start from scratch. The method is easy enough, but the drippings are the best way to go if you can swing it. When you start with the roast drippings, use this guideline – for each cup of gravy you want to [...]
