My message to guys out there in the kitchen is to simply not be afraid and cook. Whether it’s father’s day, your birthday, 4th of July, or just any summer’s day. Whether you like to cook or be cooked for, it’s easy. Do it for your kids, do it for your wife, do it for yourself. Self sufficiency is what it’s about. If you can cook, if you want to eat well, learn to cook well. And I also say, get off the grill. I mean a lot of guys know how to grill but when they get in the kitchen, they’re inept. So the idea here, is to bring you into the kitchen. It’s to make you as comfortable in the kitchen as you are with the grill. However, there is a transition. So here are a couple of foods and how you can add a special twist to them.
So, your typical Bloody Mary can be a little bit boring. But you can give it some life by adding a little twist. Guys, of course, love gadgets. Get a smoking gun. After you light it, you’re just going to add a little smoke to the Bloody Mary. Then you can turn it off and leave the drink to sit for about five minutes. The flavor will be totally incredible. It absolutely changes the flavor. Just that little bit of smoke for five minutes, it’s great.
How about bacon in a salad? A BLT salad. It’s sort of a deconstructed, reconstructed, bacon and lettuce and tomato sandwich which you turn into a salad. Now guys love a good old BLT sandwich, but there’s nothing fancy about the ingredients here. It’s really important to start with great healthy ingredients. It’s a simple salad. Just take your lettuce, tomato, any other toppings you desire, and make sure you add that delicious chopped bacon.
Alright, let’s get to the main course. People typically like to eat some type of wings, like smoke roasted wings. Well, they smell great. Now, typical wing sauce is just melted butter and hot sauce. The special touch here, is to add a mixture of fried jalapeño chilies and cilantro. And this mixture just goes on right at the end, and it will really light up your mouth like a 4th of July fireworks show. Plus it’s that easy of a recipe that you can learn. Is this going to be a little spicy? You’ll see if you go into a falsetto! But no, in fact, they’re super flavorful. When you saute the jalapeños, it takes some of the heat away making them incredibly flavorful.
Everything is easy. Even the dessert, because every guy should have a killer seduction chocolate dessert. While you can never go wrong with bacon and beer, desserts are sort of a typical weak point for men. Well, how about combining the great taste of beer into a brownie? These are the Belgium beer brownies and they’re supernaturally moist and incredibly flavorful. You know you’ve got got to try one. Plus, I mean, don’t underestimate the importance of drinks. Every guy should know how to rock the shaker, as in bar tending style. How about that? Rock the shaker, you have bacon in the salad, beer in the brownies, wings and the sauce with it to die for. Your holidays out in the summer will be fantastic.
