I told you I was going to make soup with the leftovers! The other night we had a stay-at-home pasta making night and we made homemade raviolis filled with butternut squash, jalapeno and goat cheese. It was great, but we had some of the leftover jalapeno-squash puree. It tasted so good, I didn't want it to go to waste, and besides, who likes to waste food? This was actually very…
Tuna steaks! Funny story about these. Many years ago as I was still learning to cook, I tried to make tuna steaks for Patty in our tiny little kitchen and I botched the heck out of it. I WAY overcooked them. They were tough to eat. We're talking little bricks on the plate. I don't think I've ever been quite forgiven. Until now! When cooking tuna steaks, you really want…
Last night we decided to have a homemade pasta night. What a great way to spend a Friday evening, hanging out in the kitchen with a few cocktails, making dinner from scratch. If you've never made pasta at home, you need to give it a try. A few years ago we purchased a simple pasta maker, which is nothing more than a roller with a hand crank, but it makes…
This recipe is a bit of a mashup, but that's OK. It's fun to go with what you have on hand. Patty was out with the girls so I had to cook only for myself. I seized the opportunity to make something extra spicy. I mean EXTRA spicy. No moruga scorpions or Carolina Reapers this time, though. For this dish, I've incorporated Serrano chili peppers and the spicy Moshi chili…

Moshi Chili Pepper

November 20, 2014
The Moshi Chili Pepper originates from Tanzania, Africa. It is named for the village of Moshi, located at the base of Mount Kiliminjaro. It is a very rare but productive hot pepper variety, yielding many peppers. the chili plants grow on average between 3-4 feet in height. The peppers ripen from green to red and typically reach two inches in length with a pointed end. This variety made its way…
What is it about the humble Brussels Sprout that inspires such strong reaction? People either love them or hate them. We are clearly in the LOVE camp but it didn't used to be this way. Years ago, when Patty and I got married and I was learning more about cooking, I started off by recreating dishes from my childhood that my mother used to make. See the previous post about…
These are fun! Ever want to make your own homemade Tater Tots? We've used the sweet potato as they are readily available this time of year, and isn't it fun to do something different with sweet potatoes? Maybe you can serve these for Thanksgiving this year with a bit of sweetened sauce. You can fry these but they bake up nicely. If you want them to be more crispy, leave…

Spice Rubbed Pot Roast

November 17, 2014
Oh baby! My mother used to make a killer roast. While I was growing up, she never cooked much but this was one I always looked forward to. Simple seasoned chuck roast that is slow cooked with veggies. It was a staple. When I got older, this is one of the first things I learned how to make. Of course I have incorporated a spicy spin into my recipe and…
We have a little cabin in a nearby lake town and we try to head up there once a month or so for a quick getaway. It's more of a house, really, with a small kitchen, but since we're not there often, we can't keep certain foods there. When we decide to go, we'll visit a number of local restaurants but I still like to cook many of the meals.…
I am overjoyed to let you know that today is National Spicy Guacamole Day. Seriously. Overjoyed. Guacamole is arguably the greatest dip in the world. So creamy. So delicious. So addictive. You'll find it in Mexican restaurants across the country and what I find personally amazing is how different it is from place to place. Not hugely different, but subtle. A little bit more of this, a little bit less…
