A fish sandwich recipe made with seasoned beer battered white fish served over lightly toasted buns, topped with a spicy mayo and homemade crunchy-sweet slaw. Bring on the sammiches! OK, yeah. This is a crazy-delicious, rather decadent fish sandwich recipe, but what can I say? I'm only human and I truly love this thing. Dang. What a recipe. I had a brainstorm of a vision for this just after I…
Large sea scallops seared in butter and olive oil and served with a light, slightly spicy salsa made with a combination of citrus fruits and jalapeno pepper. Ideal for brunch with a glass of white wine. This meal was inspired by a jalapeno pepper wine Patty and I recently encountered. We'd never had the pleasure of drinking a jalapeno wine. It sounded odd at first. I've had chili pepper beers,…
Make this quick and easy noodle bowl recipe with sliced smoked brisket and egg noodles, served with chickpeas and carrots, all tossed in a garlicky sriracha-soy sauce. I've been making more and more noodle bowls lately because I've realized just how quick and easy they are to prepare. When Patty and I are basically SLAMMED with our web site work or when I'm smack in the middle of another writing…
A fish tacos recipe made with white fish that has been lightly fried in seasoned beer batter, served with a crunchy habanero slaw and creamy chipotle sauce. Bring on the tacos, friends! There is ALWAYS room for tacos. What is it about fish tacos that make them so awesome? Perhaps because...THEY ARE TACOS? Quite possibly. Tacos are certainly one of life's perfections, but the fish taco is something unto itself.…
A recipe for salmon fillets, seasoned with Cajun spices, then baked and served over a bed of Cajun rice. Serve with a bit of squeezed lemon and happiness ensues. I guess it's fairly obvious by now what the favorite fish is in the Madness household. That would be SALMON. Salmon has a flavor that is unique unto itself and it's something I grew up on. When Patty and I married…
Make these classic Mexican meatballs at home with this recipe and serve them up as appetizers, the main course with a spicy red sauce, or in soup. It's a traditional Mexican comfort food with Spanish roots and they're incredibly tasty. And now, my friends, it is time to make the meatballs. But not just ANY meatballs. We're making a zesty version using more traditional Mexican flavors and we're serving them…
A refreshing cocktail recipe featuring the flavors of crisp cucumber, fragrant cilantro, tart lemon and fiery serrano pepper, made a little sweet with sugar and rallied with cilantro vodka. Cocktail time, my friends! Patty here with your next Thirsty Thirteenth. Spring is such a refreshing time of year. When everything starts blooming and people are spending more time outside, it makes me think differently about what type of cocktail I’d like…
A mostaccioli pasta recipe made with a variety of flavors, including smoked Italian sausage, Cajun seasonings, rich chili paste and plenty of melty cheese. A big flavor comfort food. It's how I cook when I think no one is looking. I'm not entirely sure what to call this recipe. It's a mashup, really, a combination of different styles and flavors, nothing you'd find in any typical Italian kitchen or Cajun…
This is an all-purpose chili paste recipe made with ancho and guajillo chili peppers. Use it to flavor soups and stews, pasta sauces, slow cooker recipes and so much more. I have this in the refrigerator all the time as a quick go-to for massive flavor. Chili pastes are essential in this wild place called the Chili Pepper Madness kitchen. A good chili paste brings a HUGE infusion of flavor…
Let's make some Italian Arancini, but with a Mexican flair using Mexican-style risotto, stuffing them with cheddar cheese, and serving them with a nice picante sauce. It's a fun mashup recipe. The first time I encountered Arancini was in a local chain Italian restaurant. We sat down for a lunch and the server brought over the specials, and on the appetizer list was something called "Arancini". I had never had…

All opinions are mine alone. #YesYouCAN #CollectiveBias Arroz con Pollo, Spanish for “Rice with Chicken”, is a classic Latin comfort food dish. You’ll find versions of this dish all over the world with slightly different ingredients and methods, though the bases remain the same. Rice and Chicken. It’s a classic pairing, really, two very basic ingredients that are…
