NOT MY COOKING
Ladies and Gentlemen, I cannot express how wonderful my experience was at @jinyaramenbar today. I have searched for a great Ramen Bar for quite a while, and by happenstance I came upon this gem. It surpassed all expectations.
The service was beyond fantastic. The food was phenomenal. The atmosphere was such an experience.
I left grinning ear to ear. I called several people just to talk about how amazing it all was.
THIS is why I love food. THIS is why I try new recipes and bombard you all with whatever culture or dish tickled my fancy.
This was not just a meal, but an experience. Visit them... you will not be disappointed.
Please! Send me your favorites. Let me get to know more about you through your inspiration. Food is more than just fuel. It has shaped our various cultures and communities. I am very excited because I will be in California this weekend and Mexico next week... so here's to food 🍻
Im 35 years old today. Here’s some truths about me: I love my family, a lot. Being a dad and a husband is really a dream come true. My favorite food is probably nachos, but why limit myself? My favorite meal is brunch. Anytime I can mix savory, salty, sweet and #coffee , I’m in. I’m not a trained chef, I’m self taught and just cook what I like to eat. I like #bourbon , it’s a proud staple of my home state. In 35 years I’ve come to realize some universal truths, people always find the time and money for things important to them. Always. Don’t begrudge them that. Just recognize that each of us is capable of making choices based on our own value system. In the coming year I hope to laugh more, stress way less. I hope to challenge myself to do new things and get out of my comfort zone. I hope I read more, phone less. I hope I grow and learn as much as i expect my children too. I hope I make my wife feel radiant and beautiful. I hope that I can learn to cling tighter to my God and my convictions. I hope that I can eat delicious food, and share my life with anyone willing to walk with me. #thekentuckykitchen
HOT PEPPER APPLE JELLY
Combine peppers to adjust flavor and heat or just go super hot and use all Reapers! Delicious spread over cream cheese and served with pita chips or crackers. Use a tart apple to balance the pepper flavors. Chop apple and pepper as finely as possible -- food processor works great.
1 cup finely chopped apple
1 cup finely chopped hot peppers
3 cups white sugar
1 packet low-sugar SureJell
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
Put peppers and apples in a saucepan. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup of sugar with SureJell. Stir this mixture into apples and peppers. Heat over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Stir in the rest of sugar, vinegar, and water. Return to a full boil and boil for 1 minute. Pour into hot jars, wipe rims, seal, and hot water bath for 8 minutes. Let sit 24 hours before storing.
