Every time I visit my parents at home, Papa Gowdy always goes out of his way to cook us up one of his famous breakfasts. Until I went off to college, Sundays were always a brunch feast. Papa G would always prepare us pancakes (sometimes he'd make them into fun shap...

What makes this dish the amazingness that it is, is the marinade. The base of the marinade is sake, which you can buy super cheap (you don't need anything fancy). I love to marinade my salmon in sake, no matter what recipe I'm using.

The first step is creating the sauce, which is of my own invention. Roasting is an extra step in this sauce that adds a lot of depth to the flavor. Of course, using fresh/raw tomatoes and sweet peppers will taste amazing, especially if you don't have time to roast...

I find that hot sauce is a great compliment to this dish, so much so that it is listed as optional in the recipe. Papa Gowdy makes wonderful hot sauce, so this is what I use at home, personally. However, this dish still tastes great without it, and is filled with antio...

This week, we celebrated Papa Gowdy's birthday! While we have been celebrating for days, on his actual birthday we are cooking a special meal at home - rack of lamb.

We decided to make a teriyaki chicken stir fry with a medley of vegetables, served over white rice. Teriyaki chicken is always a crowd pleaser, and for good reason. It's sweet and savory, and pairs well with so many flavors.

Today I am bringing to you zucchini noodles that have been cooked in a miso sauce. They are perfect as a nest for your protein, whatever that may be. I personally love the pairing them with white fish, but the beauty of zucchini noodles is that they can go in any recip...

This salad is incredibly easy to make. We're going to start by grilling the shrimp. The easiest way to grill shrimp, in my experience, is to use skewers so that there are fewer items to flip. I usually fit five shrimp on one skewer, making sure to pierce through bo...

To kick off our wonderful food blog, I would like to bring you a classic family favorite that I often cook at family events. It's my take on a lox bagel, except I replace cream cheese with a hearty avocado mixture. I also love to stack the sandwich with different f...
