Recipe – Unphiladelphia Cheesesteak

Unphiladelphia Cheesesteak

Unphiladelphia Cheesesteak

Summary:

Philadelphians love their cheesesteaks.  They get quite passionate about whether or not it should have onions, what kind of cheese, roll, etc.  If I asked for this ridiculous concoction at any of the popular Philadelphia cheesesteak places, I’d be crucified.

Imagine making a cheesesteak with an Americanized Asian chili sauce, a Mexican chipotle meat marinade, fried onions and garlic, some classic Philadelphia chipped steak, shredded pepper-jack cheese, and a buttered garlic-bread roll.  Sounds ludicrous?  It is.


Recipe – Creme de Menthe Brownies

Creme de Menthe Brownies

Summary:

This is a family classic that my mom has been making for years.  I’m not sure where she got it.  It’s pretty simple (especially if you take my advice and don’t bother cooking the brownies from scratch).  It’s delicious (it has lots of butter and sugar and also has a bit of booze).

Go!


Recipe – Cinnabons

Yeah. Ridiculously good.

Cinnabons

Summary:

One of the most evil and delicious things human beings have invented.  Of all of my silly little specialties that I make, this one has had the most time, effort, and revisions put into it.  This recipe is quite a process to undertake.  It takes a few hours to make and it probably takes more than a few hours off of your life.  They’re so damn good though.

Honestly.


Recipe – Fire Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Fire Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Summary:

This is a recipe that I originally  stole from my friend Dan.  This is quite easy to make, the ingredients are fairly inexpensive, and if someone says they don’t like this, you have a good reason to permanently break a friendship and eject them from your home.

Seriously, just make this.  And some grilled cheese.


Recipe – Fire Roasted Salsa

Fire Roasted Salsa - Final

Fire Roasted Salsa

Summary:

Mysterious.  Smokey.  Delicious.

This is a neat and simple recipe I’ve been revising with time.  This doesn’t taste like any salsa I’ve ever had from the store.  Fire roasting the vegetables really makes the flavors very interesting.  I’ve had friends and family try this, and they have all been quite impressed with it.

Yeah.  You will be too.
