Summer Beer

       When Mrs. G and I first started dating, we would go to this pub close to her place called The Old Monk. Great pub feeling and atmosphere. Phenomenal beer and whiskey list. And the fish and chips? Out of this world. If you are ever in Dallas, I would highly recommend getting them.… Continue reading Summer Beer

Bacon Wrapped Dove Breast

     I was rooting around in the freezer the other day, looking for something to cook when I came across some dove that I had shot last year. I had totally forgotten about these little beauties. How that happened, I have no clue, but I was super excited.      If you are a hunter, or… Continue reading Bacon Wrapped Dove Breast

Blackened Red Snapper

Dizzy Pig is back at it again adding to  their “-ish” rubs with the new release Bayouish. Once again, they’ve sent me a sample before they release it to try out.

Herbed Trout Fillets

     Back to the other day when I was wandering around aimlessly shopping at Sprouts and I spotted that beautiful okra. I needed something to go with the fried okra that I thought I was going to make. Fish is always a healthy choice and I figured I would make some blackened salmon or maybe catfish.… Continue reading Herbed Trout Fillets

Stewed Okra and Tomatoes

     The other day I was walking through my local Sprouts and I spotted some beautiful okra sitting in a large barrel. For those that don’t have one in their area, Sprouts touts themselves as: “Sprouts is a neighborhood grocery store with the feel of an old-fashioned farmers market. Our bright, friendly stores are filled with… Continue reading Stewed Okra and Tomatoes

Chicken a la King

     Chicken a la King is a classic dish that dates back to the turn of the century. I’m not going to bore you with details on claims that it was invented by so and so in 1880’s at such and such a place, or this other guy in the 1890’s at this other joint.… Continue reading Chicken a la King
