Honey Bourbon Buffalo Ribs

I’m getting a cold so maybe I just have honey bourbon on the brain. I went to the store the other day and I saw this franks red hot dry mix. I figured it looked interesting enough. I saw it a couple times before and it definitely stood out in the spice aisle. This time…

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…

Strawberry Funfetti Pancakes

What a day! I had many ideas for today. I thought i’d go full photographer and that I would get some really good shots for my home family album and maybe one or two to share here since I never do. Lets start from the beginning. So it was my sons Nolan’s birthday! (Also shared…

Chicken Fried Steak w/ Poblano Gravy

There is this place we go in San Antonio called Lulu’s Bakery and café. It’s a great small diner and I mean small. It’s a must hit place whenever we go. I’ve been to this place more than I could count throughout my childhood. It’s home to their 3lb cinnamon roll, diner burgers and their…

Fried Shrimp Tacos w/ Sriracha Tartare Sauce

I decided yesterday that I was going to have a lazy Sunday that includes consuming whatever I want, watching horror movies before I switch to sappy hallmark, minimal movement and…

Creamy Bacon and Cheese Gnocchi

I love anything loaded baked potato inspired. Its simple, straightforward and easy. I was really in the mood for loaded potato soup but I really didn’t feel like dealing with a entire pot of soup. Especially since I’m expecting clam chowder in the next couple days. That’s just too much cream based soup for me….

Lemon Sage Stuffin Muffin Cups

I had a heck of a time naming this. When I started typing this up it literally caused me to pause, close my laptop and think. I have no idea what these should be called. Technically these are dressing cups but I don’t really like the word dressing. But its also not considered stuffing because…

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…

Cheesy Jarlsberg Mashed Potatoes

Jarlsberg cheese is my new cheese obsession. I got a Costco size hunk of cheese from ya know, Costco and I had to find many of ways to use it. Now I’m not a cheese experts and there are a lot of different cheese, so I don’t keep up with cheese I have and haven’t…
