Candied Citrus Peel - An Ode to my Father

You are probably wondering why the connection of candy and my Dad right? Well of all the childhood memories I have eating stuff that my dad made, this one of candied citrus peel stands out the most. My dad made this for us using shaddocks (pomelo) but it was much easier for me to find grapefruits here but technically you can use any citrus fruit. I loved this snack. It is a mixture of fruit, sweet and bitter all in one. I know he continuously had to tell us, "don't eat anymore today" as my sister and I would go grab strips after strips. You will need to have a little patience for this treat, but your ingredients are simple and more than likely already in your house: Ingredients: 3 grapefruits (washed and dried) 3 cups of sugar 1 cup water Grated ginger We need to "gut" our grapefruits. I cut mine in half, then cut around the edges and use a spoon to dig out the pulp. Then cut the them into thin strips. About 1/2 inch wide strips.

Pineapple Chow

It's Friday!! The one day you don't want to have to cook. On Friday's I rather just grab something from somewhere, go out to eat or eat leftovers. Anything but having to turn my burner on. On this day I think something quick needs to be done. So for this Friday quick hit, I decided to go with something a bit more in the snack category: Pineapple Chow.

Where the cultures have cross pollinated and become totally integrated into our everyday lives. The East Indian aspect of curry everything cannot be ignored.

Smoked Paprika chicken & Sweet smoked paprika Wedges by Kiva Health

When I was given the opportunity to try KivaHealth's Hot & Sweet Smoked paprika I know I had to do more than the normal things I do with my paprika. I normally just used Paprika to add some depth to my sauces, but after reading about this product I know I need to try something more.
