    Poor Man’s Cupcake BBQ Chicken Thighs

    I love to watch BBQ shows.  I watch them whenever I can.  Heck, I think I have 5 different BBQ shows set to record on my Tivo.  My wife doesn’t watch them with me but it’s cool, she isn’t a BBQ ninja like me.  One of the best things I love about BBQ shows are the different ways that competitors cook their BBQ.  I have to say the most intriguing to me, was watching Diva..


  • Chicken Brine

    Chicken Brine

    When you BBQ, you are always striving to get the most flavor that you can out of your meat.  One way to accomplish this is by using a brine.  Brine is a salt water solution that will add moisture to your meat.  No one likes a dry piece of chicken, and I mean no one likes a dry piece of chicken.  So say to yourself, I brine my meat!  I brine my meat!  I briiiiiiinnnnneeee..

  • Poor Man’s Homemade Salsa

    Poor Man’s Homemade Salsa

    Now I just love salsa, and so does my wife.  I figured since we are having Mexican night on Monday, I would make some fresh salsa to go with it instead of buying some crappy store bought salsa poop. The first thing that you need to do is to get all of  your ingredients together if you want to make salsa ninja style. Next you want to quarter your onion.  Then slice your jalapeno in..

  • French Onion Soup

    French Onion Soup

    I think French onion soup is probably one of the greatest things the French have ever accomplished.  Napoleon should have invented this and used it as his legacy.  I made this last Sunday as I was still suffering a little dental anguish.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did. This calls for a lot of onions.  4 cups sliced to be exact.  I used a variety of yellow and white onions…

  • Buffalo Chicken Casserole

    Buffalo Chicken Casserole

    I have seen this recipe posted on Facebook and Pinterest several times over the past few months.  I decided to make it two months ago and it was a hit with Mrs. Ninja.  I even had to make some the following weekend for her to take to a work potluck.  I’ve gotten tired of soup all week so I decided to make this casserole but I would chop the chicken up really small to make..
