Next Level Chicken Wings

My Next Level Chicken Wings are just that…next level. Flavor beyond this mortal plane.

These wings have become a favorite of my fiancé’s. If I send him a text letting him know that next level chicken wings are on the menu for dinner, he texts back that I’ve just made his day and he couldn’t be any happier.

As a matter of fact, he’s the one that named this recipe. The first time I made them, he kept pausing between each wing to sing the praises of how incredible they were. “I just…wow. They’re next level. Next level wings.”

I told him I thought that was a pretty solid name for a recipe, and bestowed him with the power to name all the different chicken wing recipes I come up with. So things might get a little weird around here, but bear with me.

Maple Mustard Salmon

I’m the kind of person that truly enjoys the simple things in life. A cool, sunny morning. A hot cup of coffee. Lots of ghee and maple syrup. Together. Over salmon.

People tend to gravitate towards the flavors they like, and I’ve got a crush on ghee and maple syrup. Ghee’s nutty, buttery flavor would make cardboard taste amazing. And maple syrup is my go-to paleo sweetener, since honey tends to make my stomach hurt. Naturally, I combine ghee and maple syrup whenever possible, and that’s one of the reasons this Maple Mustard Salmon was born.

Mache Salad with Beets, Pecans, and Goat Cheese

Mâche Salad with Beets, Pecans, and Goat Cheese

The mâche story

Much like my adventures with kohlrabi, mâche showed up in the early weeks of my CSA share.

It was right about the time I felt like I was going to be drowning in salads for the duration of the CSA…there was absolutely no light at the end of the tunnel – I was destined to eat just salad for weeks and the burden of that might just do me in. You see, there was just so much lettuce at first! As a meat and potatoes kind of girl, I didn’t think I would survive so many boring-ass salads.

Mâche saved my salad-heavy meal rut. Luckily, I also realized that salads could be a lot more creative than just lettuce and dressing. But seriously, mâche is awesome.

Let’s learn a little more about mâche, shall we?

Dry-Rubbed Crockpot Pulled Pork

I’ve been meaning to post a crockpot pulled pork recipe for a long time. I probably could have posted one waaaaaay back when I first started this blog…but the problem is, I tend to make up my dry-rub mix on the fly and never write it down.

Even when I did write it down, I didn’t know how to take a pretty picture of pulled pork. Not with my phone camera, anyway.

Well, things change. Now, I have a DSLR. And even though pulled pork wasn’t on my “recipe ideas” list…

I made pulled pork for a big housewarming taco party (along with 2 other kinds of meat), I wrote down the recipe as I made it, and I got rave reviews and compliments on the pork. My partner’s dad has asked me to make it again every time I’ve seen him since.

Tuscan Salmon with Coconut Basil Sauce Banner

Tuscan Salmon with Coconut Basil Sauce

Okay, so this Tuscan Salmon with Coconut Basil Sauce was seriously fun to make. And fun to photograph with my new DSLR!

I’ve still got a lot of learning to do with this new piece of equipment, but some of the pictures turned out pretty dang well (although, let’s face it, I’m probably going to retake pictures once I get more practice). I haven’t had a ton of time to play around with my camera, but now that I’ve moved and I have more space for fun hobbies like this, the learning curve will be drastic.

Admittedly, I haven’t posted a recipe in a while. I hope this one makes up for it. I seriously miscalculated how much time and energy moving would suck out of me. We’ve been living at the new (totally awesome) apartment for a little over a week now, and the creativity and motivation is just starting to trickle in again.
