Grilled Cilantro Chicken

Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner and I can’t tell you how much I love eating Mexican food (Tex-Mex in the Midwest). I had a Tex-Mex Catering job, and it was so hard to walk away from because of the food. Chicken and Beef tacos with all different kinds of toppings. Yet, for…

Seafood Gochujang Noodles

There is one type of food I love more than other kinds of food. Surprise, it’s Asian food. I can never get enough of Ramen, Onigiri, Curry, and ANY type of noodle dish.  I’ve been on a fish kick lately since starting to be healthier (haha at my diet) but I can tell you that I always come back…

I could have those every day; although they might have to change a bit from day to day. Like the flavor of creamer, the filling of the doughnut, and from…

Super Summer Fare

Who doesn’t love barbecue? It is one meal that my whole family will eat and that is a very rare thing. I have an electric smoker that could almost smoke a whole pig (not really, but it is pretty big). I’d like to say that I made it myself and that I use whole pieces…
