Beautiful Las Vegas. Sin City. There is nothing quite like driving hours through the barren desert and finally seeing the sparkling lights of this gem of a city in the distance. In a town known for it’s Elvis impersonators, Prostitution, and Money, there is another gem called Hash House A Go Go.
During a business trip, I had the opportunity to finally get out and experience it for myself. I had heard several people talk about this place and we decided to give it a try. It was a Thursday night and we took a drive to find this place. I had tried to get in on other occasions, but they were always SLAMMED. Coming on a Thursday night seemed to work out perfectly. I was amazed that we got in right away and were seated at the bar.
Exploring their menu, I found a wide assortment of food, not just breakfast items. Some of the best things on the menu were things like their Chicken Pot Pie, Burgers, and even a Pork Tenderloin the size of your head. Now I had heard about their most famous dish, Chicken and Waffles and had to experience that for myself.
Before we got our main dish, we were greeted with the most amazing Biscuits covered in Honey Butter. They certainly know how to make a mean biscuit. My wife would LOVE these things.
When the plates came out I had to pick up my jaw from the floor. Stacked on 3 pieces of golden waffles was 2 huge pieces of Fried Chicken. Surrounding the waffles was a beautiful bed of fried Green Onion, which I thought was a great touch. They have the Nashville Hot version, which added a nice kick to the otherwise super sweet and savory dish.
How did it taste?
Trying to deconstruct the masterpiece was a difficult task, but each bite was worth it. With each bite, I was getting all three flavor profiles. The super sweet with the Maple Syrup, the Savory with the golden fried chicken, and the spicy with the Nashville Hot. It honestly could not be any better.
My only regret this whole visit was the fact that I could not try another 10 items on this unique menu. I guess that will have to wait until next time Hash House.
Holy Guacamole is a perfect addition to any Mexican meal. Put it in your burrito, on top of your enchiladas, or just directly inject it into your veins. All are perfectly acceptable.
Why does Guacamole turn brown?
It starts with a little chemical called polyphenol oxidase which is present in Avocados. When that chemical is exposed to oxygen, it oxidizes and causes a reaction that develops a pigment, turning the avocado brown.
How you combat that, is to keep the Guacamole in an airtight container and introduce some type of acidity such as lime or lemon juice.
Holy Guacamole is the perfect addition to any Mexican food dish and it is super simple to make. Why pay the extra $1 when you can make so much more from scratch.
Today we are going to be taking a look at a KILLER Spicy Marinara Sauce. Nothing says Italian Cuisine more than a classic tomato marinara sauce. Nowadays we are saving time by opening those bottled or canned marinara sauces at the cost of flavor. Who makes the best spicy marinara sauce? I have to say that the best marinara sauce is the one you slow cook at home!
Most American’s have no idea what true, homemade marinara sauce tastes like. So let me be your genuine Italian Guido and fix that. NEVER EVER buy canned marinara sauce again. It’s expensive, you lose flavor and nutrients, and this one tastes much much better.
Sure it will add some time to your day, but YOLO right? Why waste your life with crappy marinara sauce?
Now this recipe is going to take some time, so buckle up partner, I never said it would be easy, I just said that it would be worth it.
Take your tomatoes and steam them for 10-15 minutes. This is to release the skin from the tomatoes. Peel the tomatoes and set aside.
Heat up the oil and saute the onion for about 5-6 minutes on medium heat. Add the Basil, Garlic, and Spices and add the tomatoes one by one smashing them with a potato masher or your hands, whichever you prefer.
Let the pot simmer for as long as you can let it simmer. Normally, this is about an hour so that all the flavors can marry.
Today, we are going to take a look at an amazing recipe for my favorite pasta dish, the Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta from The Cheesecake Factory. This thing is loaded with flavor (and calories) so keep that in mind. It is super simple to prepare, even though there seem to be a lot of moving parts, it all comes together in the end. It is the perfect combination of spicy and sweet and savory.
Introduction to The Cheesecake Factory
If you have never been to The Cheesecake Factory, you are definitely missing out. The huge menu is rather intimidating at first, but you soon realize that most of the menu is Cheesecake. I think that is why the Cheesecake Factory is so well liked. No matter what everyone is craving, there is something for everyone. From Cuban Sandwiches to Asian Salads, to Burritos there is something for even the pickiest of eaters.
What is the Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta from The Cheesecake Factory?
Made using Penne Pasta, the Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta has Chicken breast sauteed in honey. The sauce is a unique sauce made from Alfredo and Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce. This gives it a beautiful mild kick that you crave as well as a deep smokey flavor. The sweetness of the honey combined with the spice of the sauce makes an amazing dish that can be enjoyed by everyone.
This right here is a soup for winners. Sometimes you just need a thick and hearty soup to warm the soul after a day chasing Polar Bears through the Arctic. This Broccoli Cheese Soup is super easy to make and tastes great.
Place the butter along with the chopped onion and celery into a pot and sweat these bad boys off. Once translucent, add the flour making sure to keep stirring. If you think you can stop stirring, you are wrong. Keep stirring.
Add the broth and continue to stir. Add in the pepper and salt. After about 2 minutes, you are going to add the rest of the ingredients and let them cook down for about 7-10 minutes. Add in the milk and cheese. Make sure to keep the temperature on a solid 4/10 on the heat scale or you will scorch it and no one likes scorched soups.
Garnish with some Jalapeños and some more cheddar and you got yourself an amazing soup.
