Virtually every civilization on our planet has at least some type of sausage to their credit. It’s one of my all time favorite activities in the kitchen. I chose my Cajun sausage recipe for this tutorial… Read More February 25, 2016February 25, 2016 Chef ChipLeave a comment Super Tonic I have been making this tonic for many years and it’s very potent! All the anti-inflammatory ingredients do a great job of relieving cold symptoms and seasonal allergies. We keep a supply of it on the kitchen counter at home. We don’t get sick very often, but when cold season comes around, it comes in… Read More January 26, 2016January 27, 2016 Chef ChipLeave a comment Homemade Limoncello Limoncello is the most popular liqueur in all of Italy and is increasingly popular here in the US. But I’ve never had limoncello as delicious as homemade, where crafty individuals can manipulate the basic recipe to their own taste. The concept of making limoncello is very simple and takes literally no skill: remove the zest,… Read More October 24, 2015 Chef ChipLeave a comment Cajun Chicken & Sausage Gumbo Gumbo is the quintessential Louisiana dish. When a Cajun makes a gumbo, it’s always chicken & sausage. The sausage can be spicy or not. It’s usually smoked, but that’s optional, too. The only important thing is the sausage should be a local brand.

I serve these, stuffed with mashed potatoes, over hanger steak rubbed in a delicious chile-coffee rub and molé roja, as shown in the video. I… Read More September 30, 2015 Chef ChipLeave a comment Mujadarra I know of no other meatless dish that can satisfy a meat eater’s appetite quite like Mujadarra. I love beans. And lentils are of my top two favorite beans. I rank navy beans (the ones used in Baked Beans or Pork & Beans) and lentils as my two favorites. Lentils win only because they pack… Read More September 20, 2015September 20, 2015 Chef ChipLeave a comment Cajun Pork Jambalaya Jambalaya has its origins in New Orleans as a Creole dish and is generally believed to be a cousin to Spanish Paella.

A perfect crab cake or crab fritter has as few ingredients as necessary so the crab is the star of the show. Bread crumbs are necessary to hold the crab together during cooking. But we want only what is absolutely necessary! I’ve been… Read More August 27, 2015August 27, 2015 Chef Chip4 Comments Water Kefir Ginger Tonic I have been enjoying fermented foods for several years now.

My favorite flavor enhancers, especially for grilling, are onions and lemons. My first experience with these two was when following a recipe for grilling lamb.
