I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

chili chouriço

I’m the culinary king of adapting, if I do humbly say so myself!! Ok, maybe king of making shit up on the fly, but king nonetheless! So when my Portuguese lady friend Lina recently offered some of her home made chouriço (she smokes the shit herself in her backyard smoker too, y’all), I knew exactly how to put it to good use!! Make my SuperBowl chili as per usual, then slice&toss these badboys into the mix for that extra oomph!! And, with temps reaching minus 25 in these here parts, nothing beats a hot bowl of chili w/ grated Jack and a dollop of sour cream, along w/ plenty of crusty peasant bread (along w/ plenty of beer of course *wink wink*) on a cold Canadian wintry day!!

best burger at my house … and I didn’t even make it!!

… ok, ok, MAYBE not numero uno, but def in contention … we’ve (I, I folks, lol) made many a great burger through the years, this ranks right at the top. It’s Whole Foods ultimate burger … they have a gazillion to choose from, and I was being lazy (and running late), so I went old school basic (good quality beef, with 80/20 lean/fat ratio – minimum) and dressed it up myself … cremini mushrooms, jalapeño jack cheese, vidalia onion … w/ my homemade bomber sauce (low-fat mayo, mustard, bbq sauce, horseradish) … check out the pics, y’all!

look at the amount of fat …

fluffy omelette

… almost souffle like!! Something I’m strivin’ for when whipping up an omelette. The shape, (ain’t bustin’ open – staying intact), colour & texture look perfect … almost as if I used a mold, lol. Threw in leftover steak, onions and mushrooms … that’s Monterey Jack cheese you see oozing out … fill it as you please. Oh, and it’s 4 of the most free run, hormone free brown eggs ya can get – that’s key btw, use the best/freshest eggs … ALWAYS!!
