Rum cream coffee cooler


"Icy Cool"


This is probably the most delicious way to enjoy a cold iced coffee, spiked with creamy rum. I have made several versions of this recipe each time having a hit or miss and using the past miss to make the next better. Once night I finally got it right. And since this month is all about cool refreshing icy cold things for summer I decided to share the wealth.

Sorrel glazed smoked pork chops


My Dinner

My husband has been asking me for smoked pork chops for weeks. I’ve not exactly been ignoring him, but because I’m not really a pork person it’s not one of the things I remember to pick up in the grocery store. So today we went grocery shopping together and he made sure to pick up a pack of pork chops for me to cook for dinner today.

Jerk sausage beef burgers with a roasted red pepper mayo


My Dinner


If you want a burger that incredibly juicy and flavorful you should probably mix some seasoned pork sausages into the beef. Specifically, jerk pork sausages. Smoked paprika, pepper jack cheese and jerk sausage are a match made in heaven when it comes to burger making.

Boozy Java grilled shrimp skewers


My Dinner


Its time for a shrimp dinner. I think my husband was getting tired of chicken and fish. He loves shrimp, but loves it fried. I decided to go a healthier route to get the best of both worlds. Grilled shrimp is another great easy dinner idea. And putting them on skewers makes your life even easier.

Sesame garlic fish nuggets



My Dinner


How about we have some fish. Light crispy deep-fried fish tossed in a sweet garlic sauce. I call these fish nuggets. Delicious dinner option when you are tired of chicken. This fish is full of Asian flavors, a melting pot of garlic, sesame seeds, green onions and honey. Serve this with some fried rice and that’s dinner.

Sticky Pineapple rosemary drumsticks



My Dinner

I really had no idea what to do for this month of recipes. However I cook dinner 3 to 4 even 5 times a week most weeks. So I figure I will blog whatever I cook for dinner. So this month I am posting whatever I cook for dinner so you can cook it for your dinner too. Now let me just warn you, I am the easy dinner queen. I want full flavor with little effort.

Rotisserie chicken and cheese Hoddeok


Rotisserie revamp!


Store bought rotisserie revamp 7: Rotisserie chicken and cheese hoddeok
This is the last recipe for rotisserie chicken month. Hoddeok is a yeast dough filled with sugar, nuts and cinnamon then pan fried. When fried the sugar and cinnamon melt on the inside leaving you with a sweet gooey filling and crunchy nuts. That’s how its normally done. Today I decided to revamp it and add chicken and cheese to the mix.

Rotisserie chicken pizza


Rotisserie revamp!

Store bought rotisserie revamp 6: chicken pizza


It’s almost as if rotisserie chicken was made for pizzas. It’s another great way to use up left over rotisserie chicken meat and make a brand new and delicious dinner, that everyone will eat without even realizing their eating 5 day old chicken.

BBQ Chicken and green onion loaded potato skins


Rotisserie revamp!

Store bought rotisserie revamp 5 Loaded potato skins

At this point you would imagine everyone in my household is sick and tired of rotisserie chicken. Now is the time when the recipes will masque the chicken instead of putting it front and center. Sometimes you will want to serve the chicken in all its glory. But let’s say you have had a rotisserie chicken in the refrigerator for longer than 5 days and a few breasts are left in the back of the refrigerator in a bit of foil, you might not necessarily want to celebrate that. This is where these amazingly delicious potato skins come in handy.

One pot chicken and rice and beans


Rotisserie revamp!

Store bought rotisserie revamp 4: Rice and peas and chicken
This recipe I really pulled out of thin air. I had a half of rotisserie in the refrigerator and you know that means dry. You could easily pop it in the microwave and make the rice separately, but I wanted to see how best I could infuse the flavors of the coconut milk and rice into the chicken. Similar to what happens when we make an arrzo con pollo. The thing that I had to be mindful of was the fact that the chicken was already fully cooked and I did not want the risk of it turning to mush.
