Leftover Turkey Gumbo Recipe with Shrimp and Brown Rice

Every year after thanksgiving I have a ton of leftover food.  Whether it be mashed potatoes, vegetables or turkey, it’s a mess of food that could feed the entire neighborhood.  I usually eat a few turkey sandwiches or make turkey pot pies, but man this year I’m totally going to change things up!  I’m going to make a turkey gumbo with shrimp, andouille, ham, and brown rice!  I’m sick of eating the same old thing, in fact if our family wasn’t so married to turkey I’d be eating a big ol’ prime rib roast!  What I need to do is…

Hickory Smoked White Chicken Chili Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BUSH’S Beans. The opinions and text are all mine. There are few cooking techniques I’ve enjoyed lately more than the art of smoking food. Not only does the food come out so flavorful, tender and juicy, I literally get a standing ovation from my neighbors from the wonderful smells that fill our block. Smoking food is one of the oldest forms of cooking, and it was mostly used to preserve meats since back in early centuries of the world there was no refrigeration. Nowadays it’s used to incorporate delicious…

Oven Roasted Whole Curry Chicken with Vegetables and Rice

Now that school is back in session I’ve been looking to get more creative with simple to prepare meals.  Not that I wasn’t before, it’s just that I had a lot more time during the summer because there was no urgency around exact times to eat dinner.  Now that my daughter is in school I’m all about convenience and bold flavors, which can sometimes be difficult to do.  While most people think simple and delicious should be done in under 30 minutes, I lean more towards an hour or less except of course when it comes to braising things in…

Chicken Cassoulet Recipe with Chicken Sausage

There are few recipes I enjoy in this world more than Chicken Cassoulet.  It is everything that’s good and right in cuisine.  It’s incredibly comforting, hearty and meant to graze upon all day long, and the best part is that it’s actually incredibly easy to make.  The first cassoulet recipe I ever made didn’t actually even have chicken in it, it had duck which is a bit more traditional French.  Duck is one of my favorite things to eat, but I’m a little hesitant because I’m not sure the family would enjoy it quite as much as I would, so…

Summer Salad with Quinoa Recipe and Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

As I’ve been writing the last few weeks in some of my blog posts, we are on a mission to indulge in all things clean eating and that’s why I created this Summer Salad with Quinoa Recipe and Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing.  We aren’t perfect, nor are we striving for perfection, and we still appreciate a once a week cheat day.  We are still learning on what to cook and how to cook it, but one thing that is for certain, man do we feel better and our bodies seem happy with what we are putting in it. One of…

Baked Chicken Recipe with Wild Rice and Apples and Plums

Lately I’ve been going back to my culinary roots while in the kitchen and have been rediscovering some of the simple flavors that got me so interested in cooking when I was just a pup.  One of the first things you learn to cook when in the restaurant or in culinary school is a roast chicken.  It’s one of the simplest things you can make but man is it just so good with only few ingredients.  This Baked Chicken recipe literally consists of the whole chicken, cut in half, seasoned with Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper and then baked. …

Oven Baked Sheet Pan Chicken Recipe with Vegetables

Not sure if you caught my Facebook live post the other day, but I actually prepped up this Oven Baked Sheet Pan Chicken Recipe with Vegetables while live.  The intent of the post was more around doing a Facebook Live since it had been so long and I figured I’d cook while on camera and chat all things food while doing it.  The sheet pan chicken craze online seems to be just about everywhere these days and the best way I can define it is it’s the new pot roast meal, only it’s quicker… Oh yeah, it’s chicken instead of…
