Grilled Red Curry Chicken Skewers with OXO

Chicken

Summer is here and we are knee deep in grilling season. I love cooking things on a stick and using this OXO 6-Piece Grilling Skewer Set makes the experience even better. The flat design prevents the meat from rolling around on the grill while the wide handles makes it easier to flip the food with […]

Kung Pao Smoked Pork Belly

This week I am sharing a Frankenstein recipe of sorts as I mashed up two things I cooked recently into one great recipe. A few weeks ago I posted a recipe for Pork Belly Burnt Ends, which is just cubed pork belly, smoked, and cooked in BBQ sauce. Earlier this week I had the pleasure of cooking […]

Shrimp Asparagus Stir Fry

Life has a funny way of getting in the way of things. Case in point, my daughter is getting married this coming weekend and as a result I have been pretty busy. The planning and prep has taken me away from my cooking and blogging. But hey, I didn’t say life getting in the way […]

Big Green Egg Curry Brined Chicken

My journey in to brining continues with this delicious recipe. I have seen people soak their chicken in buttermilk before and wanted to try this technique out for myself.

After careful thought (and a lot of self reflection) I have decided to post this for you. Warning… this is super delicious and you will […]
