    Besides getting great flavor of the Blackened Chicken, this is my kicked up version of an easy Alfredo Sauce. This sauce is quite rich tasting, so be sure to serve it with a side of a salad with a nice acidy dressing to help cut some of that richness.

    Recipe #474057

    This recipe for Blackened Chicken has become one of my favorite recipes, and I'll definitely be doing it again. It's easy, and took only about 30 minutes from start to eat, which makes it great to cook when you've been working all day.

    Recipe #465782

    This is one of my favorite ways of cooking chicken in the oven, and, it's the only use I have for granulated garlic. I think it's worth while to keep it in my spice cupboard though, because this dish is a winner. The tartness of the lemon, along with the garlic flavor, and just a touch of heat from the blacken, really kick up, what could turn out to be just another baked chicken meal. Just be careful not to use too much blacken, because the flavors will it will take over the dish. Butt Kickin' Blacken contains neither salt nor sugar. If you use a different seasoning blend, you'll probably have to adjust for their high salt content.Butt Kickin' Blacken is available at: For additional Instructional pictures, please visit:

    Recipe #424408

    Tired of the same old pork chops, I thought I would do them on the grill, bacon wrapped. I used a mixture of charcoal briquettes and charcoal. The briquettes last longer and the charcoal adds that campfire flavor, while the bacon added the taste of smoked hickory. Marinating them for 2 days in the Orange Juice Brine provided the hint of orange flavor, and helped to create a real moist chop.

    Recipe #424407

    Using real thick and smokey bacon really gives this plenty of flavor. It’s cooked slow, because of the bacon, and, as a result, the fillet comes out real moist. There’s so much flavor in the meat, additional sauce isn’t needed. For additional Pictures, please visit:

    Recipe #403613

    I've servedthese with, and without the "rub". The consensus is that even though you loose the strong bacon flavor when you put the rub on it, the hot and sweet flavors of the rub really kick this old time standard up. Butt Kickin' Blacken contains neither salt nor sugar, and is available at:

    Recipe #400586

    Grilled, Eye Round Roast I switched Charcoal! Due to it always being windy when I'm trying to light a fire on my little grill, I've been using "Matchlight" with just a couple of squirts of Starter Fluid. I'm now using a mix of Charcoal, and Charcoal Briquettes. The charcoal gives the smell of a campfire cooking, and the briquettes help the fire last longer. This piece of meat picked up the nice smokiness of the fire that carried through even into the cold sandwiches. Cooking for leftovers let's me eat great meals all week without the fuss of having to cook from scratch. I had Roast beef with Gravy and Baked, Smashed Potatoes, and Roast Beef Sandwiches. I had company the day I made it, and once more during the week. The end result was that I got a total of 8 meals out of this. Since this meat is so dry, not a lot of marbling, this cut of meat is really not to be cooked well done. If it's well done, it'll taste dry, and tough like shoe leather. I reheat it, by dipping it in hot gravy, only long enough to heat up the meat without continuing to cook it. Butt Kickin' Blacken contains neither salt nor sugar, and is available at

    Recipe #385350

    Whenever I cook for an Hors D'oeuvres party, everyone's always looking to see what type of shooter I'm going to do, this time. This is one of my most popular ones. As in all my recipes, if you want this one to be "hot", just use more blacken on the shrimp. This is not the recipe where you want to use large expensive shrimp. I use 41 - 50 count which are a single mouthful after you've cut them in half.

    Recipe #385348

    I've been wanting to make these ever since I came up with Better than Granny's, Maple Fried Chicken. So here I am with some extra chicken breasts, and figured that this was the time. They have a nice crispy texture. with the hint of Maple Syrup to the chicken. Butt Kickin' Blacken contains neither salt nor sugar, and is available at If you use a different spice blend, you will probably have to adjust for their salt content.

    Recipe #376121

    Chicken was on sale this week $.29 / pound for leg quarters. After I did the butchers job, separating legs from thighs, cut off the backs and tails, removed all the extra fat, I still had a little over $3.00 in 12 legs and 12 thighs. I bought so much 'cause it's Sunday and I'm cookin' for the week. I've been hankerin' for Fried Chicken so I figured I'd have another shot at it. I had some fried chicken tenders at the Super Bowl party at my local watering hole that were great and REAL moist. When I asked Charlie (head chef) how he did it, he told me that he always brines chicken prior to frying it. 6 months later I'm trying it. I looked all over my favorite web sites for different brines and found that the common denominators were; water, salt, vinegar, sweet, and spices. Lookin' around the galley for available stuff, I came up with this recipe. I took half the chicken and made it according to my Fried Chicken recipe, letting it soak in buttermilk with a little chipotle tabasco in it for a little bite. Then, I created the other marinade (recipe shown below), which is really a brine. Let both soak in the refrigerator for about 8 hours. Cooking the buttermilk batch, the smell was of normal fried chicken. The brined version smelled of the vinegar and I was concerned that the vinegar might give it an off flavor. Boy, was I wrong. Now, don't get me wrong, the buttermilk chicken was good, but, the brined chicken was GREAT. The smell of the vinegar while cooking must have been the vinegar cooking out. This brined version was more moist with a better sense of the flavors that were in the brine, especially the maple syrup. And, the Cajun Spice flavors of the Butt Kickin' Blacken really come through. Now you could say that it was just me talking about something that I made, but I had a buddy over tonight. A Southern buddy. Even he liked my version better than the buttermilk, even though the buttermilk version tasted just like his Granny used to make. So I guess it's a keeper and I figured I'd write it down before I forgot what I did. I can't even think of anything that I'd do different.

    The Pork comes out real moist and full of flavor. The only way you'll be able to tell that it wasn't smoked outside, is by the lack of smoke flavor. However, when you don't have a smoker available, this is the next best thing. To eat the sandwich "Carolina Style" place some Slaw on top of the meat in the sandwich, and serve baked beans on the side. I served it with Potato Salad. You may not be a fan of making Pulled Pork in an oven, because you'd rather be smokin' it outside. However, there are also a lot of you out there that don't have access to either a grill or a smoker, and you've got to find a different way of cooking if you want something like pulled pork.

    This may not part of a true Polish Easter Brunch, but it's something that has been made for any special occasion in our family since back in the 70's. My Mom had gone to visit a cousin in Atlanta Georgia, and came back with this great new cocktail. Once we tried it, it's become a must for all the Holiday Meals. This is the version that I usually make. The Cran-Ras has more flavor and you put enough of the brandy in so that you can taste liquor. No matter how big a batch you make remember that this version uses 1 part Southern Comfort to 2 parts Brandy. If you don't seem to have enough liquor in it add a little more Brandy. Just make sure you keep track of everyone drinking this because it will definitely sneak up on you. For additional pictures of Easter Brunch, Please Visit

    The local "Polish Sausage" we have in the South just isn't anything like what we're used to from a good Polish Butcher. In New Jersey, every butcher makes, and smokes their own sausage, and every one's just a little bit different. It took me a while, but I've been able to find a place that will vacuum bag it, then ship it to South Carolina. If you'll be making the Kielbasa Soup, use the chicken and beef broth. If you're not making the soup, you can just boil it in water. For additional pictures, please visit:

    A Gruszecki tradition and now ours, is that each person gets a colored egg at the beginning of the meal, right after "grace". Each person uses his/her egg to tap on everyone else at the table, while wishing them a Happy Easter. Part of the trick is to be the last one with an egg not crushed. After you smack eggs with everyone at the table, the egg gets peeled and eaten. The following are a few hints that will help you cook the best hardboiled eggs: The fresher the egg, the harder it will be to peal it. You should purchase your eggs 2 weeks before you'll be cooking them in order to get them to peal easy. And, the way to get the yolk to be in the center of the egg after it's boiled, is to store them on their side. This relieves the pressure on the membrane within the egg that holds it suspended. The green coloring on the outside of the yolk is caused by cooking them too long. Cooking by the directions below will eliminate that. For additional pictures, please visit:

    This recipe makes about 1 1/2 quarts. It should be enough for about 8 people. However, if you know that you've got company coming that REALLY like this dish you might want to make more. The only problems you might have is in the horseradish. The heat comes form the oils in the root. If it's been out of the ground too long, it might dry up and lose it's heat. When purchasing the root at a store, we'll scrape it with a fingernail to see if we can smell it. If there's no smell, there's no heat. In keeping with that line of thought, keep the horseradish and the horseradish and beets covered as long as possible, the longer that the horseradish is exposed to the air, the more heat it'll lose. And finally, if you've used fresh horseradish, save the tops, you can quarter them and plant them for next year. It takes 2 years to get thick roots, but you can have some fresh as early as the next year after planting. For additional pictures, please visit:

    This is a traditional Easter cheese, that is quite bland. In fact, it really isn't a cheese at all. The cheese that you see on the plate is 1/3 of the recipe. Even though this dish is not too popular at my house, we still make it as part of the tradition. Quite often guests just fall in love with it. For additional pictures, please visit:
