Shrimp and Chicken Etouffee

I was in the mood for gumbo. As luck would have it, I had all the ingredients for it except the key ingredients! Which would be a bag of crab boil, what I would consider not enough gumbo file and crab.. Last time I made gumbo I had no crab in it which isn’t a…

Lebanese Chicken and Fried Onion Rice

I did my spice rotation today. Which isn’t a huge task I just bring stuff like dried chili powders, turmeric, cumin, I also bring my baking items down because this is the time that I bake most. While I was cleaning the cabinet and rotating I got a huge whiff of cumin. It brought back…

Baked Chicken and Broccoli Rigatoni

I was super excited for this one. I went to the store and they had bulk upon bulk of mushrooms reduced. I knew what that meant I gotta use them up quick. Which I thought wasn’t a issue because mushrooms are my absolutely favorite fungus. I figured I could stew them, I could braise them,…

Herb Roasted Chicken w/ Roasted Garlic Brown Gravy

I’ve been dealing with a lot of styles of chicken lately. From segments to quartered from brined to smoked. But let me tell you, nothing beats a herb crusted roasted chicken with a pan gravy on the side. Ever since I made parmesan cheese a staple in my chicken seasoning blends its really changed the…

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich w/ Ghost Pepper Ranch

If I’m testing and sampling out a new recipe, during a football game is the perfect time. Most people are two things, hungry and less fussy about food during this as long…

Carolina Reaper Ranch Dressing

Getting other to try California reapers is like pulling teeth. Its reputation tends to precede itself and requires others to be approached delicately. Everyone I approached to try the pepper as is had pretty solid reasoning that I truly couldn’t make a argument for. The responses I got about this pepper were amazing you’d think…

Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich

I had to find more than one use for my lemon pepper ranch. I don’t know if I’m going through a ranch faze or what. I seem to be going through it a lot lately. So here in Texas, like mentioned before green chile products are a huge thing. That seasons coming to a end…

Honey Jalapeno Orange Chicken Wings

Annnd we’re back with the chicken wings! I know you guys love them. So do I, but what’s the point of posting what I’ve posted before. So often times, as stated before I love chicken wings see these post : Pineapple Sriracha Wings, Cajun hot butter wings,but even a one ingredient deviation won’t cause me…
