Delicious Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

After making the shrimp creole...its no wonder why I felt the urge to try another dish from the south. This time I decided to try Chicken & Sausage Gumbo. Although, there are numerous ways of making this dish...I'm just so happy to have chosen a recipe that looked and sounded delicious after reading the reviews. The description spoken from those who tried it had me drooling with temptation which caused my eyes to tear and my mouth to water.The moment I read the requirement of spices for this dish...a feeling of redemption swooned over me for being a proud owner of so many spices in my cabinet. In other words, I finally get to put 'em to use. So...without further ado - I'm off to see the wizard as I trolley down the yellow brick road. See ya on the other end.

World's Best Shrimp Creole

I have never in my life had the opportunity of tasting Shrimp Creole. But as I watched one of my favorite cooks Ms. Paula Deen simplify this recipe...I knew she had me in mind. Okay, maybe I've fabricated that part; However, I couldn't resist and had to make it. So, I rushed in to my kitchen to take a quick inventory of my stock and I'm elated. I am now armed and dangerous. I am well suited, equipped, and confident to accept this task. As I'm stacking my ingredients on my counter, I'm starting to get a visual of my completed dish. So, while it's still set, fixed and fresh...let me get crockin!

Succulent Shredded Teriyaki Chicken

This is a recipe I actually tested and tasted months ago. I even made it for my mom's wedding reception. It disappeared so quickly I was lucky I even got a piece. Normally, it's made on the stove-top and it's absolutely mouthwatering delish. But since I started this blog...I wondered if I could make it in a crock-pot so I had to put some thought into it before my actual attempt. Honestly, I planned it all in my head to get a visual first. I'm happy to report...the answer is yes. The only difference is that the chicken will need to be shredded because the length of time to cook it---the meat will fall off the bone. Do not be weary of this because it still taste great over rice, as a teriyaki chicken sandwich, or even in a green salad. I'm positive your friends/family will be requesting you to make this many times over. Although I have made this Teriyaki Chicken recipe in the past, this is my first attempt to cook it in a crock-pot and I'm so excited for both me and you. So...I'm off to get this crock party started!

Polynesian Spareribs

From the moment I saw the title of this recipe...I just had to try it because of its name. They called it, "Polynesian Spareribs." So being from the islands...I figure here I go. Just to let you know...I'm doubling the recipe because there are seven of us in my family. Now let's see if I will add this to my collection of recipes or pass. I will get crockin and let you know what happened.

Terrific Chicken Long Rice

My husband has the Best Chicken Long Rice recipe and he knows it. Now because of that fact alone...praises are kept to an absolute minimum in order to keep him from floating into other galaxies. In other words...I need to keep it on the down-low. Anyways, since he won't share his secret recipe with me...I found a recipe by Betty Shimabukuro and decided to add it into my collection of crock-pot recipes. I'm trying this recipe for the first time with my fingers and eyes crossed. So...let me turn the music up and get crockin.

Tasty Kalua Pork

Here in Hawaii it wouldn't be a luau if there's no kalua pig. Well we all know how expensive it is to purchase  just one beast; However, you can make it in your crock-pot without spending big dollars, putting in all the labor that's required, nor would you need to dig an imu in your backyard. The only difference is...it will be called Kalua Pork instead. I remember when my hubby made this for dinner one night when we were living in an apartment. I thought he bought it or someone gave it to him. But the truth was that he cooked it in our crock-pot which was quietly sitting on the kitchen counter. I'll be honest with you...he has been my hero ever since! So...are you ready for this? Let's get crockin!

Onolicious Lau Lau

Aloha! We got this recipe from the local newspaper here in Hawaii. The contributor of this recipe comes to us from Betty Shimabukuro. She has made the selection process easy because her passion for food radiates through her joy of cooking as she extends the aloha spirit to everyone. I also chose Betty's recipe 'cause her name reminds me of Betty Crocker (just joking!). Enjoy!
