I think I have a trend going in the last week, I have been making peeps out of everything or adorning them on something like the cake here. This is an easy to do quick last minute cake. You could even do this to a store bought cake in a real pinch. Just be sure to grab a can of frosting too!
Yesterday I decided to roast a whole chicken in my Kamado grill. I am loving this grill so much. It has never been easier to grill since I bought my Kamado grill a few months ago. It was so easy that after I marinated it, that I just had to put it on the grill and leave it alone (well, kind of) for 3 hours other than turning it one time. I built a little warmer fire than I had been doing, about 275 degrees. I placed the chicken directly across from the charcoal and that’s it. I had a perfectly cooked, roasted chicken.
I always hate to say the words best ever but to me this is the best Mexican rice I have ever had. This is full of vegetables with just a hint of garlic, cumin and chili powder. Once you make this rice you will never be the same eating the rice usually served at Mexican restaurants.
I had the best time making these this morning. I made the dough last night before I went to bed and refrigerated it overnight. As soon as I got up I put the bag of dough in a sunny spot to get the dough to start warming up. Within 30 minutes I was rolling it out and slathering it with cinnamon butter goodness. Roll the dough really thin so you get lots of layers.
The kids were here last week and it was time to take the Kamado grill out for a spin with some bbq ribs. It did them perfectly with so little effort. I don’t think I have ever used and easier grill. Once you get the temperature adjusted to where you want it, in this case about 200 – 225 degrees, just let it go. I go back several times throughout the cooking process and check the temperature and sometimes sneak a peek. I read somewhere though that “if you’re looking, you’re not cooking”. I just love that phrase! LOL
