Peach & Basil Grilled Chicken

One of my absolutely favorite things to do is to take a marinade preparation and turn it into a smoking masterpiece.  Peaches and Basil come together to elevate the average bird to something really special.  You can follow the recipe using a grill, or you can use an entire bird and place it on a vertical non-stick chicken roaster.  Norpro sells these for less than $8 A quick google search will yield several sources for you to acquire one of these beauties.  The wonderful thing about this product is it allows the smoke to get at the meat from...

Chicken Tikka Masala

Indian food can be a mystery for many culinary adventurers. Cooking a classic from another culture can be a little daunting, at first.  However, once you get the technique and the portions of spices you will find that your confidence level will rise, and your ability to explore will increase.

Thanksgiving in the United States is a time where we sit down and share memories and food with loved ones.  The food that we share often times, can be nostalgic that respect time honored traditional dishes we had in our childhood.  However, I suggest that not all of those recipes were actually good. Too often in fact the Turkey you remember that your Grandmother made was dry, tasteless, and you covered with a brown gelatinous substance that while brown – wasn’t really gravy at all.  If you are willing to take a step out of your comfort zone –...

Slow Cooker Sweet & Spicy BBQ Pot Roast

In September I became a Grandfather.  One of the great blessing of being PaPa (what my daughter calls me to my Grandson), is having my Daughter coming over on Wednesdays and Fridays.  It’s not quite Tuesdays with Morrie type of a deal – however, I do relish our Father / Daughter discussions.  This is where a lot of the life lessons I laid down earlier in my Daughter’s life have come back up and let me know that they were not lost or forgotten lessons.  They are actually stuck and are now being applied in her day-to-day life.  I...
