Roasted Chicken with Mole BBQ Sauce

Have you noticed how I seem to go through special food phases? I’m very toddler-like when it comes to that. Apparently I’m in a Mexican food phase now. I’m sure it’ll pass soon, so hang in there! Imagine how I thrilled I was when I received a beautiful package filled with all sorts of different dark chocolate Mexicano discs from Taza Chocolate. It couldn’t have come at a better time…

Roast Chicken, Saffron, Lime & Chilli

I know it’s getting old, me saying I have found yet another ultimate roast chicken recipe, but really… I did. Even though nothing beats my Peruvian Roasted Chicken, this beauty combines all that is good in this world, and then it kicks it up a notch… or two.

I guarantee you that. The magic to getting this succulent…

Let’s spice up those boring cans of brown beans that are now collecting dust in your pantry! Seriously, nothing screams autumn more than a big pot of simmering beans on the stove, right? Now let’s raise the bar and kick it up a notch and turn them into a Surinamese-style brown beans and rice dish that will blow you away. Not literally, of course, only in a good way. Unless…

Sweet & Sour Chicken

This is one of those dishes that keeps me coming back to Chinese food over and over again. It rocks. ‘Nuff said. It’s comfort food to the max, but light and fun to eat at the same time. Very family friendly too because it’s not spicy, not overly acidic, sweet or salty. It’s just right. J-man loves this dish. Also, it’s not MSG-laden, which is a big plus to me because…
