Caribbean Style Curry Goat

    There are days when I miss living in Brooklyn, NY. Being a born and bred California girl, living in New York was so different, so strange and so stimulating to all my senses.  I can vividly remember the first time I took the A train up to Harlem. A sea of various shades […]

Ramen Salad with Roasted Eggplant and Shishito Peppers | Black Girl Chef's Whites

Ramen Salad with Roasted Eggplant and Shishito Peppers

  There is so much more to ramen than the sodium laden noodles with dehydrated vegetable and seasoning packs.  Don’t get me wrong, those packets of Top Ramen got me through college, but my palate has since become more refined. Traditionally ramen noodles are served in a bowl of rich broth, with assorted accompaniments such […]

Slow Cooker Roast Chicken with Potatoes | Black Girl Chef's Whites

Slow Cooker Roast Chicken with Potatoes

    She’s not the most beautiful chick(en), but she is succulent. Her skin is not bronzed like her oven roasted sisters, but she is so tender and juicy.  Slow Cooker Roast Chicken is a bit of an oxymoron, as slow cooing and roasting are very different methods of cooking.  It may be contradictory, but it […]

Johnsonville Andouille Split Rope Sausage

Slow Cooker Savory Andouille French Toast

Some mornings deserve a show stopping breakfast.  Some evenings deserve a show stopping dinner. Look no further than this Slow Cooker Savory Andouille French Toast to fit the bill for both.

The Spicy Thai | Black Girl Chef's Whites

This is not a recipe for the kids.  This is a spicy, sweet and intoxicating cocktail infused with the flavors of Thai cooking, hence the name The Spicy Thai!

Lemon-Tarragon Tuna Melt with Provolone

  Once upon a time a chef entered a contest for the best grilled cheese sandwich. It was only a grilled cheese after all, how hard could it be to come up with the winning recipe? That is how I began my post about the Brie, Gorgonzola and Pork Loin Grilled Cheese recipe I developed for […]

Creme Anglais and Pureed Persimmon

Drumroll Please! The Persimmon Ice Cream Recipe!

Apparently my skills as a procrastinator have improved over the years.  I have been trying to post this recipe for two weeks now, and finally I have succeeded. It’s a cold and rainy day outside, and I have a beautiful, warm fire going in the fireplace.  And what am I writing about? Cold, cold, cold […]

Strawberry Wine Sauce

Strawberry Wine Dessert Sauce

One of the best things about living in California, is the abundant fresh produce available year round. So what if we regularly have brush fires, earthquakes and such. We have delicious fresh fruits and vegetables while we repair our homes! Recently I was near a strawberry growing region, so naturally I stopped at a roadside […]

Creamy Avocado Ice Cream

Cinnamon and Ancho Chile Scented Avocado Ice Cream

Today is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!  But I am not a big fan of chocolate ice cream, though I do love chocolate in most other incarnations.  I decided to re-post a recipe I developed, for those might want to try an ice cream that is a little different…Avocado Ice Cream. Avocado ice cream? Really?  […]
