Flipping the Bird!

You all were probably wondering when we would get to the turkey, it wouldn’t be a pre-Thanksgiving without one!  Well, here it is in all its glory.  Shiny, brown and full of flavor, a brined turkey is pretty amazing.  We love them because the flavors from the brine seep into the entire bird and are…

Eat All the Sides!

We are about to conclude our non-traditional week!  Sorry for the delay, we had some cookery up our sleeves this weekend and our poor hands and minds were a bit too tired for posting!  But, with the weekend behind us, we are ready to keep on with the Thanksgiving craziness!  We went a little veggie/healthy…

The Bird is the Word!

We love Thanksgiving! It not only reminds us of all that we have to be thankful for (which is a lot) but we get to make and eat some crazy amazing food.  This year we decided a little planning was in order and decided to give the bird to our turkey cooking fears with little…

Perfect Puka Bread

Hi, there!  This is Kelly, I’m taking over today to introduce you to Puka Bread!  Puka (Poo-kah) bread is my family’s go to dip for entertaining.  It is named after puka shells, or at least that is what my mom tells me!  It is perfect for large fall parties.  It is wonderfully warm and savory, with cheese, meat and…

Beer Can Chicken with Maryland Potato Salad

We do a lot of things to chicken, but this is by far the most deranged (see the pics) and delicious!  Throwback Thursday features Beer Can Chicken, Maryland Potato Salad, Fried Corn on the Cob (recipe to be featured tomorrow), and our Curiosity Cola BBQ Sauce.  We also went local with our beer:  Coastal Empire…

Kanpai! Sushi Rolls!

We’ve always wanted to try to make sushi rolls but they always seemed like such a huge process, and we will admit it, we were kind of nervous to attempt them.  So we figured it would make for a perfect (or disastrous) Where in the World Wednesday.  We did have to go to Fresh Market…

Fantastic Fish Tacos!

Sometimes traditional just works and this is one of those times!  Fresh fried fish tacos (try saying that five times fast) and a bright corn relish make for one of the best summer meals out there.  Fish tacos are our go to taco.  They are fast, taste like summer time, and relatively healthy!  We fried…

Vegetable Pancakes and Cucumber Fennel Salad

Meatless Monday is back with delectable Vegetable Pancakes and a Tasty Cucumber Fennel Salad!  Since we are a big fan of our Asian vegetable pancake mix to use as a batter for many of our fried dishes, we thought it was time to actually make some vegetable pancakes.  It was a first for us and…

Watermelon Agua Fresca…with Vodka

Watermelons are our favorite sweet treat during the summer.  Sweet, cold, a perfect cool down treat.  We whipped ours up into an even more refreshing summer drink.  A traditional Agua Frescas (fresh waters) contains fruits, cereals, or seeds blended with sugar and water.  We took the extra sugar out of ours and used straight watermelon…
