I found a small frying chicken on sale so I made Barbecue Rosemary Chicken. This is an easy barbecue recipe with few ingredients and gives a great result. One you spatchcock your chicken you won’t want to go back to cooking it any other way! There's also a how-to video available at: http://oldfatguy.ca/?p=368
If you like smoked or grilled food, chances are you like cornbread. I've made cornbread from mixes, but it usually comes out a little sweet for my liking. I make this version that has no flour in it, just cornmeal for a base. It has a nice coarse texture, but is still tender & makes a great side dish for ribs, BBQ chicken, pulled pork, chili & most Mexican dishes. You can trust me... everyone knows Canadians make the best cornbread!
Serves: 8 to 12
A perfect recipe for St. Patrick's Day or frankly any day of the week. Creamy, delicious, easy to prepare & pairs up nicely with steak, chicken or seafood & a potato side dish.
Serves: 4 to 6
The question is... what can't you use this on? It's so great as a topping/garnish on all Mexican Dishes like Tacos, Chili, Burritos, Huevos Rancheros & so on. I use it on my Loaded Mexican Hot Dogs along with mustard (see recipe in the Sandwiches category). I also love it on scrambled eggs, it gives them a scrumptious creaminess... I'm sure you'll love it!
Roasting these healthy green jewels is the best way to cook them, not only for excellent flavor, but to keep in all the precious nutrients!
Get out of the doldrums with the same old boring hot dog & move on to this spicy, tasty version!
Broccoli is one of those vegetables that people either love or hate. Once they try it roasted though... a lot of those haters change their mind. Roasted broccoli has a whole different taste & smell than broccoli cooked any other way. Broccoli is considered a superfood & something you want to have in your diet regularly.
Ever hear of food synergy? It's when certain superfoods are combined together to create an even healthier food. This recipe contains 3 examples of food synergy; Kale & Almonds, Avocado & Tomato, Orange & Avocado making this one delicious, super healthy salad. Definitely something you'll want to add to your daily diet or at least a few times a week!
Carne Adobado is basically chile marinated shredded pork. Mostly used as a filling for tacos, burritos, enchiladas & quesadillas, but you could also serve a pile of it on a plate with couple of side dishes like Refried Beans & so on. It's hard to say how many servings you'll get from this recipe, it all depends how you serve it. I like to make this & then freeze it in portioned containers & it'll last quite a long time... so it's well worth the effort!
Just about everyone who has created their own chili recipe, fusses over it, tweaks it over many years & keeps it a secret. Mine is no different... I started creating this recipe in the mid 1970's & have changed it many times over the years. Now I'm going to share my Signature Chili Recipe with you... enjoy!
Serves: Approximately 10 to 12
