  • Poor Man’s Cupcake BBQ Chicken Thighs

    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…


  • Ninja Yeast Rolls

    Ninja Yeast Rolls

    Everyone loves bread.  If you don’t love bread, then you ain’t no friend of mine.  I try to bake bread every Sunday in the marc is a ninja household.  Bread is key to being a ninja.  It brings back those memories of being a young mini ninja which you can use to focus your chi and take down all of your foes.  I highly recommend fresh bread to help you onto your path as a..


  • 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..


  • Spicy Corn Chowder

    Spicy Corn Chowder

    I felt that last night I needed something new to eat besides pureed soup.  I have to say that I am not quite ready for it yet but this soup turned out great.  It’s been raining a lot here in Colorado and the soup just hit the right spot in this weather. These are all of the ingredients I will be using for this ninjatasitc soup. You will want to start off by cooking some..


  • Rosemary White Bean Soup

    Rosemary White Bean Soup

    This dental procedure has really set me back on what I can eat.  I’ve already devoured the broccoli cheese soup from a few days ago.  Yesterday, I decided to make a bean soup and here are the results. First, you need to soak your beans for at least 6 hours.  Preferably overnight as it makes the cooking process go faster. Chop up 3 to 4 medium sized yellow onions.  This recipes uses a lot for..


  • Ninja Broccoli Cheese Soup

    Ninja Broccoli Cheese Soup

      Tomorrow I embark on a journey to the dreadful dentist.  This will be the first time I’ve ever been put under anesthesia for any kind of procedure.  Needless to say, this ninja isn’t exactly comfortable about all of this.  I won’t be able to eat solid food for at least a few days.  This dilemma forces me to look back on my ninja training and ask, “What would a ninja do?”  A ninja would..


  • Frugality with your Vegetable Scraps

    Frugality with your Vegetable Scraps

    Everyone loves to save money.  If you don’t, then you are not a part of my ninja clan.  One way you can save money in the kitchen is to save all of your vegetable scraps.  This will also lead to some good eats (Alton Brown oh yeah!).  I make soup quite often as it is an easy meal and it leaves you with a simple feel good kind of feeling.  A lot of soup recipes..
