Chorizo Sweet Potato Chili:


My Rating: 4.5/5 stars

My Review: Wow, what a pleasant difference between chorizo chili and plain old beef chili. It was much fattier– if that makes sense. Much spicier and more flavorful. I loved the sweet potatoes and the dish altogether was pretty fantastic but, I wish there were beans included. I don’t feel the sweet potatoes were enough to distract me from the fact that I was eating chili with no beans.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 2 cups peeled and diced sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp cooking fat – ghee, coconut oil, bacon fat, etc.
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 4-6 slices uncured bacon cooked and drained
  • 1 lb ground chorizo sausage
  • 1/2 medium onion diced (or one small)
  • 14.5 oz can Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Green onion and avocado for garnish

Baked Fish & Chips:


My Rating: 4/5 stars

My Review: The potato fries turned out lovely!! It was simple and easy for boyfriend to make both the fish and the fries on the same sheet pan. The panko crust really stuck to the fish and added a nice crunch. Sadly, the meatier parts of the fish– with no crust, tasted a bit bland.

Ingredients Needed:

For the fish:

  • 3-4 medium sized russet potatoes
  • Seasoned salt and Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon each chili powder & garlic powder
  • Pinch ground cumin
  • 10 ounces cod
  • 1 cup Panko
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, separated
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Lemon

For the tartar sauce:

  • 1/2 tablespoon minced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1/2 tablespoon pickle relish
  • 1 large lemon (1/2 teaspoon zest and 2 tablespoons juice)
  • 1/2 cup full fat mayo
  • Salt and pepper

Baked Sausages with Apples:


My Rating: 5/5 stars

My Review: Yum, yum, yummy!! The honey sauce all over everything was so delicious! The char on the potatoes, onions, and sausages… mmm! I loved the apples in the mix, too. It gave it a little tartness so it wasn’t overly sweet at all. For our side: baked beans.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 4 large pork sausages
  • 2 large apples
  • 1 1/2 lb fingerling potatoes
  • 1/2 lb baby carrots
  • 1 large red onion
  • 2 tbsp. sage leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. rosemary leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt & pepper, to taste

    1. Lol OH NO! I’ve heard that happens to people after pregnancy often! Or they start to really hate something because they craved it so much during pregnancy! I haven’t ate chorizo that much but I think I really like it. 😀

      1. Yeah. There are some foods I no longer eat because the smell was so repulsive lol.
        I like longaniza more than chorizo, it’s almost the same, but I think chorizo definitely tastes a bit more spicy
