Best Baked Beans Ever!


Summa Summa Summa time!


Did I leave the best for last? I’m pretty sure I did. You can almost bet money that baked beans will be at the next summer BBQ you attend. I can assure you however, that they won’t be like this. You know I had to add my own little special twist to the traditional fare as usual. In the case of these beans think zest!

Redpepper cornbread


Summa Summa Summa time!

Another summer staple; Welcome the cornbread. It doesn’t get any more summer than that. Cornbread is just an every occasion bread, it’s not even about summer; Christmas, thanksgiving, every BBQ, every cookout cornbread is there and it’s not going anywhere any time soon. Best thing to do is get rid of the Jiffy and Betty Crocker, save those for the lazy days home and pull out the big guns for BBQ’s this summer, try this recipe.

Creamy Honey Coleslaw



Summa Summa Summa time!


I previously wrote that the Cesar salad is the summer salad king. Well if Cesar salad is the king coleslaw is the queen or at least the prince or princess.  A perfectly seasoned and flavorful cold coleslaw does wonders for a burger, hotdog or aside some delicious fried chicken, bbq chicken or ribs. It’s a recipe we must all have under our belts for the summer.

Kale and apple salad with pomegranate vinaigrette


Summa Summa Summa time!


Its about that time when we mix veggies and fruits. The lovely and highly anticipated summer months are here. I too have joined the club but instead of bringing you the typical Cesar salad which is clearly the official salad of summer BBQ’s or worse the ready-made flavorless salad in a bag, you get this;  A fresh, crunchy, tangy, sweet, oniony and yummaaaay Kale salad. Yes you can eat kale raw, taste just like lettuce I promise.

Parsley soufflé omelette


The best way to eat an egg!


In researching omelette types I discovered the soufflé omelette. An interesting method where the whites are whipped separately from the yolks then combined to make a fluffier fuller omelette. I decided to use a few herbs, some flavored cheese and put the method to the test. It really does work.
