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.  

Recipe: Chicken Tamale Pie

I can absolutely tell you that this was delicious and it was just about the ugliest thing I have made in ages. In the future I would probably add some jalapenos and made diced up onions and peppers to it but this was a big hit as is.

Recipe: No Fry Sweet and Sour Chicken

I really love this recipe because frying is just a bridge too far for me most days. I understand most people don’t fry because of health but for me it’s mostly just laziness so if you want the delicious taste of sweet and sour chicken but less work – this is the recipe for you.

Recipe: Red Thai Curry Baked Potatoes

Two great tastes that taste great together. If you like curry and you’d like to alternative to eating with the many variants of Indian breads (dosa, chapati, naan, and so on) than this is great. I actually first had this in Amsterdam of all places but wow, it’s weirdly satisfying and filling. I had it…

Recipe: Turkey Stroganoff

A staple for some people but not a food I’m personally in love with this is a fairly easy and pretty decent  version of stroganoff using ground turkey which is great because it means you don’t have to cut up any meat. You can sub in any other ground meat you like or even add…

Recipe: Spicy Chicken Sandwich

The original recipe touted that this is a copycat of Wendy’s but honestly it doesn’t really taste anything like Wendy’s except for the part where it’s spicy and fried chicken. Nothing wrong with that and this was an absolutely delicious and great sandwich/burger but just don’t expect a miracle of replicating the deliciousness of a…

Recipe: Chicken Afritada

This is a really simple dish that comes out pretty good. If you’re looking for a twist on chicken meals this one is a good place to start. I’m not usually a fan of sweet plus meat but the pineapple isn’t too clawing in this dish.
