Awesome Roast Chicken!

Ok, so as promised in the CousCous post, here is a recipe for some KickAss roasted chicken! Now you can do just about anything to a chicken when your roasting it, so feel free to add whatever you like, or take away what you don’t . We can promise you that it will still most likely be tasty! This recipe creates some smoke so be prepared to have a window open or and your fan on for a little bit, but the end result is worth it! Add to it a pan sauce made with white wine, and the result […]

Cast Iron Skillet Pizza!

There’s nothing better than a good home made pizza! Just the smell and taste of a nice crispy crusted pizza that you made yourself! The store bought frozen things just can’t beat that! And since we just bought a new cast iron skillet we’ve been aching for a chance to make something just a little bit different with it.

Rustic Roma Tomato Basil Soup!

IT’S FREAKING COLD!! ha Right now here in KickAssVille we are experiencing an ice storm and temperatures of about 20 degrees! COLD! Luckily, my work is closed today so it’s a friday I get to spend doing whatever I want at home. Which means that I’ll probably end up sledding down some stairs or creating a house full of traps like Kevin McCallister. Ha. Or I’ll end up making this awesome recipe again! Whenever it’s colder than your ex-girlfriends heart outside, I always like to make up some chili or a big pot of soup! Not only does this use […]

KickAss Music: Karnivool!

Anyone who knows me knows that I listen to a large variety of music. Anything from John Mayer, to old school mid 90’s country,to GOOD rap, to dubstep, to metallica, and everything in between ( as long as it isn’t new country…..ugh….). And anyone who REALLY knows me knows that I like a lot of foreign bands like Biffy Clyro (whom I mentioned in another post), silverchair, Birds of tokyo, and this band…..KARNIVOOL! Anytime I try to describe them to people the only way I┬ácan think of is to call them the Australian version of Tool. But that isn’t really […]

Garlic-Rosemary No Knead Bread!

So there are very few times I’ve actually baked anything and it’s turned out awesome. ha. I’m just not a baker. So when I came across a recipe for bread that didn’t require any kneading or attention I thought I’d give it a try.

Basic Hot Sauce!

Ok, So by now you’ve realized we love all things hot! Your actually probably thinking we’re a little obsessed….and you would be correct! ha. But it’s all for good reason. Hot sauce, if it’s a good one, can add both flavor and heat to whatever your eating. Most store bought ones taste like someone dropped a salt brick into a pot of vinegar, and the fancy independent ones are just designed to get you to buy them or create permanent burn marks on your underwear! So in keeping it simple, and with flavor in mind, here is a basic method […]

Chicken Saltimbocca!

HOLA! Buenos dias! and happy Sunday! Around here, Sunday is usually the day to catch up, relax, and not worry about the coming week ahead. It’s also the day when we plan to cook something good for ourselves or friends. Now I’m not talking about a huge feast that takes all day, i mean c’mon, that would defeat the purpose of Sunday! What I’m talking about is a laid back, easy to prep dish that tastes amazing! And here is it, KickAss Chicken Saltimbocca! Chicken wrapped in prosciutto with a wine lemon sauce on top? What’s not to like about […]

Creamy Avocado Pasta!

Happy New Year!! So let’s recap….we survived the mayan/zombie apocalypse, another horrible Adam Sandler movie, and 1 more year with Justin Bieber on the planet. I know, I know….Bieber is still alive despite my…oops..I mean OUR trying, ha, but now that that’s all behind us let’s look forward to this awesome new year that is upon us! One of the things I’m going to do this year is try foods that I come across that sound weirder than a 3 legged spider monkey waving a lit sparkler. Weird right? So in that fashion I came across this recipe that looked […]
