Recipe: Chraime

This is a great blend of fish and tomato sauce. It’s spicy, it’s creamy without cream, it’s soft but has a nice bite. It’s just an all around dish. This is best served over rice or couscous or with a nice crusty bread so you can sop up all the sauce.

Recipe: Hainanese Roasted Chicken

I make roasted chicken every now and then but I never posted a recipe for it because there’s not much to it. This is the first roasted chicken I feel compelled to share because it’s extra delicious and has just enough steps for me to feel like it might be a recipe more than just…

Recipe: Fleischnacka (Meat Snails)

This is a pretty unique recipe from the Alsatian region in France. It’s what you’d get if you combined stew, pasta, and a wrap all at once. While it does take a bit of time I found that you can freeze the rolls and then simply cook them right from the freezer which means this…

Recipe: Chili Fries

Take french fries (or really, in this case roasted potatoes) to the next level by adding chili on top of it. This comes together surprisingly quickly and can be topped with anything from cheese to jalapenos and ranch if that’s what floats your boat.

Recipe: Cranberry and Apple Stuffed Turkey Breast

Okay, so this is not your everyday meal but it also isn’t all that difficult providing that you aren’t completely hopeless at pounding out turkey breast and tying things up with string. While it does have a few minutes of hands on work, after that the meal goes in the oven for a majority of…

Recipe: Turkey Bolognese

This is such a simple sauce but it’s absolutely delicious. Served with a wide noodle to pick up all those nice chunks of turkey (or chicken or beef or whatever ground meat you end up using) and tomato there’s really something truly delicious about taking good food and making a good meal. You can add…

Recipe: Stout Braised Chicken Thighs

This is a pretty interesting stew. Using Guinness (or other stout) gives it a deep, nutty richness. The stew come together with very little effort but I still think I prefer chicken when its stewed in other things. The sauce on this one is also very thin so if you’re looking for a stew with…

Recipe: Peri Peri Chicken

This is just a delicious marinated chicken dish. It’s got a nice amount of spice to it but isn’t too overwhelming. This was a big party pleaser and it’s easy to prepare a lot. It’s probably especially nice if you have a grill but I used the oven and it worked out fine.

Recipe: Salted Cod Balls

I made these for my Eurovision party on account of Eurovision was in Portugal this year and after spending a week there last year I fell in love with salted cod, locally known as bacalhau. While I had to make my own salted cod it doesn’t involve more than just a little time and a…

Recipe: Crab Cream Croquettes

I absolutely adored these. They’re pretty simple to make and you can use canned crab or those krabsticks that are really fish puree to make them. They go well with thick dipping sauces and you can make them ahead of time and freeze them before frying for a crowd or for an easy lunch.
