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…

churros-5

These may be my new favorite, especially with coffee in the morning, and how I’ll show you how to make churros and just how easy they are to prepare.  Last summer I was in Columbus, Ohio tearing up the town looking for the very best in all things culinary.  I took one of those food bus tours and landed at a little Mexican bake shop.  When we got there they greeted us with homemade churros that were literally still hot, and from there I fell in love.  Sure I’ve had churros before but it had been awhile, and ever since…
