Turmeric Chicken with Honey Butter and Coconut Cous Cous

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…

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…

Black Bean Tamale, Chicken and Cheese Casserole

tamale-10

I always have this grand idea that I will eat better, get back in the gym and do my darndest to get healthier with each New Year.  Sometimes I can keep it going for a few months, but most of the time failure endures and I wait months again to press the restart button and try again in the newest year.  Most of it just comes down to time and motivation, and for once I feel as if I have both.  No more getting up at two a.m. to feed a baby, no more being up five a.m. when a…
