Turmeric Chicken with Honey Butter and Coconut Cous Cous

turmeric-chicken-with-oney-butter-and-coconut-cous-cous-banner

This Turmeric Chicken with Honey Butter and Coconut Cous Cous is one of the cooler things I’ve cooked in the last few weeks.  I’ve baked a ton of good stuff lately but haven’t had much time to get creative and make a tasty meal in awhile, so when this came up I was all in.  If you haven’t cooked with turmeric before don’t be worry it’s just like using any other spice, the trick is to balance out the flavors with things it goes well with like honey. Now because I didn’t want to smother the chicken in honey before…

Classic Nicoise Salad Recipe

Classic-Nicoise-Salad-Recipe-banner

At least once a week we indulge in an all-out vegetable fest and this Classic Nicoise Salad Recipe hit the nail on the head!  I make so many rich, delicious foods and desserts that a few times a week we just crave nutrients from vegetables so I try to get all vegetarian, or in this case pescatarian, and create something amazing.  I have always been a sucker for Nicoise Salad, in fact I did one some years back but roasted every single ingredient on the grill including the romaine lettuce.  This time around I wanted to use up the new…

Man was I in it this week.  My wife’s birthday was Tuesday and Mother’s Day is Sunday…  Now that I’m married I have to account for 3 total moms and of course by something on behalf of my daughter for my wife just because that’s what good dads/husbands do right?  After cards and presents were bought I needed a cake, so I I went all in on this Southern Hummingbird Cake Recipe which I’ve been dying to do for a few months now.  One, I love all things “South” and two it’s pretty much a carrot cake, which my favorite,…

Blackened Mahi Mahi Tacos Recipe

blackened-mahi-mahi-fish-tacos-19

As I’ve gotten older and a lot more patient, mostly due in part to having a 3-year-old, I’ve been enjoying more and more the entire cooking process and the same goes with this Blackened Mahi Mahi Tacos Recipe.  Whether that’s prepping everything beforehand or cleaning up.  Maybe it’s just pride in my cooking or my kitchen, but I’m enjoying the cycle in its entirety.  The crazy thing is that it can be any recipe too, even a grilled cheese for crying out loud.  I never thought I’d be at this point in my cooking career but I remember reading about…

Hazelnut Crusted Snapper with Orange Butter

snapper-7

It’s a challenge to get the rest of my family to eat seafood so anytime I can mask a bit of the flavor, or in my case enhance it, I give it a try.  This Hazelnut Crusted Snapper with Orange Butter is not only incredibly easy to make but wow is it bursting with flavor, and the best part is the family loved it.  I haven’t decided whether or not to tell my wife and daughter that the skin was still on the fish because she may flip out on me….  Maybe next time :-). This method of crusting the…

I’m into easy these days. Chasing a 3-year-old around day and night, super busy at work, and just finishing up remodeling our kitchen I want delicious and I want simple.

I wanted to explore what it would look like to make a delicious dessert that is dairy free and loaded with fresh berries so I created this Yogurt Tart. Too much…

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes Recipe

blueberry-pancakes-4

I can’t even begin to tell you how happy these Blueberry Wheat Pancakes make me.  I feel like I am a pancake connoisseur always on the hunt for the best pancakes out there and these may just take the cake.  They are light, they are fluffy and they are absolutely delicious!!  To me there are certain criteria that make up good pancakes.  How much do they rise, do they fall apart (not good), are they fluffy, and do they taste good.  If they can hit all of those then you will be in for a treat. Great pancakes always start…
