Pistachio Pesto

Pistachio Pesto

Pesto is a sauce that really needs no introduction. By switching out the pine nuts for pistachios and adding a hint of lemon, we subtly alter the flavor profile making an all ready awesome sauce a little more complex. Musical Pairing: Black Breath – Heavy Breathing. I’m pairing these two together because both the pesto …

Spicy Hummus

SONY DSC

I have people over a lot, weather it be friends, my band or other bands, there’s plenty of times where I have to cook for a bunch of people. Being kinda broke, I’m always looking to do this on the cheap.  I use hummus a lot as a way to have something for people to …

Pan Fried Yucca Cakes

Yucca Cakes

Yucca is a ridiculously underrated and underused vegetable.  Not only is the yucca a great alternative to potato but it also has a much better texture than your standard old spud. These cakes are flavorful and pack a bit of spice making them a perfect side to a mexican meal. Musical pairing: Cephalic Carnage – …

Avocado Leaf Chicken Empanadas

Empanadas

There’s a lot that goes into this meal.  It will take some time, but its a great way to add a lot of flavor to chicken, which I find to be boring and bland in most dishes.  The ingredients are cheap and they taste great assembled correctly, which is always a huge plus. Musical pairing: …
