Creamy Lemon Bars

These are THE creamiest lemon bars I’ve ever eaten. Lemon bars were probably the first thing I baked when I first started out. They were also the first recipe I got comfortable enough with to start tweaking and experimenting. One of my early experiments included using sweet and condensed milk and since then I never…

Nopales (Cactus) Breakfast Tacos

Cactus breakfast tacos are always a treat! Adding potato and egg is a great way to be introduced to cactus. Cactus for the unfamiliar, is similar to aloe. It has a gel like inside. To remove this gel you’re going to need to boil it in the water, salt and vinegar. Cactus done correctly has…

Bruschetta Cod

Cod not to be confused with salt cod is something I eat often. Most seafood I’m really not that into but ill make a exception for cod. I prefer meatier fish like cod, mahi, or tuna. The challenge is keeping me interested so I’m always trying to think of different ways to get it in…

Cajun Jambalaya

Jambalaya is something I’ve eaten a lot of and I loved since I was kid. I just love the mix of crunchy peppers and veggies. The assortment of meats and of course the kick of the spices. It really brings out my inner Newman. When I was a kid though it used to leave this…

Jalapeno and Cheese Cast Iron Cornbread

In the South cornbread is always a option. Always. Everyone does it differently and its a generational thing. Some recipes have been handed down from generation to generation.

Guajillo Chicken Tacos

Let me start off by saying “Heat Advisory”. Now I consider myself a heat lover and feel I can handle myself with heat. Im not one of those people that necessarily are on the hunt for the next spiciest meal. I’m by no means a glutton for punishment in that area. Its crazy to me…

Sausage,Sundried Tomato, and Spinach Rolled Egg Kolaches

I have many things about the cold I just love one thing in particular is a toasty house. When the house is nice and warm I love to pull out a frozen loaf of bread dough and proof it on the counter oven night covered with a towel so I wake up in morning and…

Garlic Habanero Lamb Loin Chops

‘Its really cold out right now here in Texas. But it’ll be 71 by Monday. Classic Texas weather. So when I have windows to get that “cold weather” food in that we all know and love about winter, I generally have a very short time frame. Heck I wouldn’t be surprised if its 80 tomorrow….

Shrimp Burgers with Lemon Kewpie Mayo

Shrimp is something that I indulge in often but sometimes I have to remind myself to do something different. Fried shrimp used to be my go-to but I find myself really limiting my fried food intake to maybe once a week. I find that the healthier I eat the more the desire for bad food…
