Habanero Pineapple Salsa #2

Over the weekend I made several attempts at making a Habanero salsa that wouldn’t blow my head off.  You can easily adjust the heat by roasting more Habaneros and adding in till you get the heat you want.  This is now my favorite salsa.  Already ate a pint of it and it’s only Tuesday.

Prickly Pear Cactus Juice (for cocktails) Recipe

If you buy this stuff in a store, it’s ungodly expensive.  We have a really big prickly pear cactus in our yard.  We picked some of the fruit and processed it, boiled it and strained it multiple times in cheese cloth.  Result was 6 cups of juice.  Here’s what we did to make it something […]

Chicken Adobo – TKD

Ok, here’s my version of Chicken Adobo and is a take on the earlier one here.   I think the chicken broth add a nice flavor to the sauce but it is non-traditional.  This time we used boneless, skinless chicken thighs but I prefer to do it with bone in, skin on chicken parts. Chicken Adobo […]

Simple Chicken Adobo and Adobo-flavored Garlic Fried Rice

I found the recipe below on a now defunct blog.  What happened was my copy of it got splattered in the kitchen so I went looking for it again to reprint it.  No luck.  Finally, pulled a copy of it from the Internet Archives (Wayback Machine) from 2004.  Here’s a link to the original webpage […]

Carne Asada with Roasted Vegetable Salsa

I’ve been wanting to make a Carne Asada for a long time now.  We finally did it and it was freaking awesome.  I didn’t have any tri-tip or flank steak in the freezer but I did have an Under Blade Roast.  It’s a tasty piece of meat but it’s tough if you don’t treat it […]

Homemade Ancho Chili Powder –

Once you make this simple chili powder you will never buy the dull, tasteless crap that passes for chili powder in a store again.  This chili powder will also transform an ordinary chili into a champion. What I look for in a chili powder is a LOT of flavor.  I’m not looking to get much […]

Braised Lamb Breast – Cheap & Tasty

We were in Walmart in Cottonwood AZ the other day and I came across a vac sealed bag of Lamb breast.  I’ve never seen lamb breast in a store before.  They were only $1.78 a pound. Since we love lamb but hate the high price of the best cuts, we decided to see if we […]

Our Favorite Hamburgers –

Tonight I worked on refining a recipe for good hamburgers.  The American meal. I cooked one for our daughter (and a small one for our Jack Russell) first.  She took a bite and said “Oh my God”.  So, I guess we did pretty good.  I was then told to ‘take a bite, a small bite’ […]

Crab Cakes and Lobster Tails

This one is AWESOME.  We picked up two small Lobster tails from Harris-Teeter.  This is a real simple and very tasty way to prepare the Lobster.  Steaming the lobster with wine improves the sauce as the juices of the lobster will go into the wine and not be lost.  This would probably be even better […]
