Sam's Blog


Here is where I'll be sharing my latest thoughts, rants, goings on and food stuff from my travels. 

It might be just visual or textual... humorous or profound… technical or novice-like (I'm not professing to be the greatest writer) but with my food storytelling, I hope to share the importance of cooking with your family.

Thank you Chandler & Glendale, AZ

Thank you Chandler & Glendale, AZ

Here's a snapshot of some of the awesome locals that came out to say hi, at Safeway in Glendale, this weekend. Not sure what's in the water, but boy were they happy hanging out and eating shrimp poached in #FinlandiaButter.

PARSLEY BUTTER CHICKEN

PARSLEY BUTTER CHICKEN

I know what you're thinking, and if you thinking buttery, delicious and amazing… you're right. If that's not what you're thinking, maybe you should try this first.

BTW, this is perfect tailgate dish, so start the NFL kickoff the right way.

National Hot Dog Day recipes

National Hot Dog Day recipes

Yep, it was National Hot Day Day on 23 June. So, to honor this American staple food, here are 3 of my ultimate dog recipes, to help switch it up, from the old mustard-and-ketchup routine.

THE HAWAIIAN DOG

This tangy hot dog packs a punch full of flavor – dogs will never be the same again.

RECIPE

 

GREEK HOT DOGS

Yes the tomato and cucumber are nice, refreshing & certainly delicious.  But what really makes this is the quick tzatziki. It adds a crazy amount of flavor that had us wanting a 2nd & 3rd.

 RECIPE

 

PASTRAMI REUBEN DOG

I love a Reuben, but always make it with coleslaw instead of sauerkraut. So it just makes sense that if I was going to turn it into a dog I would do the same.

FATHER'S DAY: My food centric gift list

FATHER'S DAY: My food centric gift list

There should be something here to suit most tastes, I'm confident these are all guaranteed Dad pleasers.





Send Fresh fish

Catalina Offshore

San Diego's premiere seafood supplier - both wholesale & retail. And while I'm not necessarily suggesting you give a gift of a side of fresh salmon (though you could) - their website is perfect for sending seafood gifts anywhere in the country.  Imagine your recipient's joy when they open a gift of Baja Yellowtail, or huge white Mexican shrimp, and the list goes on.


A SAN DIEGO CENTRIC SELECTION OF LOCAL PRODUCTS

SPECIALTY PRODUCE

Specialty wholesales fruit, produce and tons of other stuff to pretty much every restaurant in San Diego, but regular people like us can go shop there - which I do pretty much every week.  But they also have a great collection of local, San Diego products that are perfect for a San Diego Centric gift.  Sauces, jams, charcuterie, mustards, oils etc.

National Eggs Benedict Day 4/16

MY #1 BREAKFAST CHOICE

I love a good Benedict, and I have experimented plenty over the years to create some easy recipes for you. It's key to get the eggs just right, so I have included how to make perfect over-easy or poached eggs. You could buy your sauce, but I prefer to make mine fresh - it's so quick when you use a blender. Enjoy your Saturday!
