South Carolina “Bird Dog”

This recipe is inspired by the “Bird dog”, a dish at one of our favorite local hole-in-the-wall restaurants near Greenville, SC called Mac Smith’s. This is one of those hyper-local regional favorites, to the point that Google doesn’t really know what a “Bird dog” is! Check out our blog associated with this recipe and how to make the homemade version of this classic South Carolina special, wherever you are!

Chicken & Sweet Potato Hash

One of favorite things to use when we go camping is our cast iron skillet! This five ingredient Chicken & Sweet Potato Hash was delish and so easy to make. This recipe takes a long time with marinading time, however, could be sped up if making or baking at home.

Colombian Carnitas Marinade

Ya’ll know I love anything that can start as a base for tacos, and this citrus marinade is no exception! I wanted to adapt a typical citrus carnitas marinade recipe to include the Naranjilla (Colombian citrus) puree from our friends at Wislla Distribution. However, if you can’t find this from your local Mexican grocery store, you could sub that out with orange or lemon juice in equal quantities.

Greek Lamb Tacos

This was a fun take on tacos we made one night, fusion style! We used some ground lamb we had in our fridge and made a tzatziki sauce with cucumbers for the added crunch factor. Definitely a winner for a quick easy way to mix up #tacotuesday!

Shark Bait Shrimp Pasta

This one is for all the Shark Week lovers out there! I was inspired to make this Shark Bait Shrimp Pasta with a lobster-based sauce as I had some leftover lobster bisque from Cousins Maine Lobster in my fridge. Check out the second link for the story of how I first found out about the awesome food truck along with more on my inspiration for this recipe. Perfect for date nights in too!

Rachel Ray Inspired Sausage Baked Ziti

We were inspired by the original Rachel Ray recipe (linked below) to create this dairy-free version of her Sausage Baked Ziti! This was a really cool thing to make as a family-friendly meal prep dish, as it makes a lot of leftovers (our favorite). We also found that after making the dish, it ended up tasting better if you mixed the bechamel, cheeses, and tomato sauce together and then baked it, as everything combined better, but it’s simply a taste preference for us there. Try it either way and let us know which way you prefer in the comments below!
