Competition Chili

Competition Chili

I have always wanted to enter into a chili competition but never had the time.  So I decided I would make a nice competition chili at home to see what the differences are between it and normal chili.  For one, Competition chili does not have beans.  It can not have any fillers such as noodles … Read moreCompetition Chili

Dana has been craving pumpkin pie for a couple weeks now.  I decided that I should break down and make her one.  I wanted to try something different so I found a recipe from Paula Deen that uses cream cheese instead of evaporated milk.

Birthday Lasagna

Dana's Birthday Lasagna

This week Dana got a year older.  For her sake, we will not divulge the exact age.  However, her only request was to have lasagna made with beef and not Italian sausage.  So I whipped up some homemade noodles and put together her Birthday Lasagna.  It was a great little lasagna.  I may not be Italian, but I … Read moreBirthday Lasagna

Balsamic and Honey Glazed Nectarines

Balsamic and Honey Glazed Nectarines

I love to grill.  It is as simple as that.  I love whole meals that can be made outdoors.  I have discovered that stone fruit works great on the grill.  This is the type of fruit with a hard pit in the center.  Peaches, nectarines, etc.  The other day I came across this article where they grilled nectarines with a balsamic and honey glaze.  This sounded amazing. I must say that if you have never combined honey and balsamic vinegar, you have never lived.  It is delicious.  A must try.

Bacon Chicken Kabobs

I love grilled chicken.  However, if you cook boneless skinless chicken breasts life can become dry and boring.   So I devised a surefire way to cook chicken, keep it moist and give it a smokey bacony flavor.  Yep, skewer the chicken with a couple strips of bacon.  The fat keeps the chicken moist and imparts a nice smokey flavor that everyone will love.

I love bourbon!  It is one of my favorite liquors in the whole world.  I am always messing around with it and I finally made a nice light and refreshing cocktail with it.  I know there are others, but I wanted to create a cocktail for the summer.  One that could handle the hot summer temperatures … Read moreBourbon Breeze
