Carne Picada: Equal Parts Versatility and Taste

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in food

I have become a big fan of using the carne picada sold in our local butcher shop for taco night. Marinated, thinly sliced beef, ready to cook that makes extraordinarily tasty tacos. Buying this product is convenient and gets a weeknight dinner on the table in a jiffy. However, I got to thinking. What exactly is this carne picada? Why can’t I make my own? And what other delicious dinners can I create using it? 

Cthurkey: Turkey Cthulhu and Cthulhu Turducken

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in food

Living in California while the rest of my family lives in Texas is hard, so I always look forward to going home for Thanksgiving. This year was no different, but when I arrived, I was greeted by strange smells from inside my home. I always looked forward to helping my mother make the last minute preparations, but this year she firmly refused to let me anywhere near the kitchen. At a loss, I wandered into the computer room. Sitting down, what to my wondering eyes would appear but a page with a turkey stuffed with an octopus.

Creating Balanced Flavor – The Best Mini Blender

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in Blenders & Juicers

A small blender can benefit you in ways you haven’t even thought of. The possibilities for between-meal snacking are endless! It’s small, so that means less counter space taken up in your already-packed kitchen. Plus, depending on your family size, you may not have the need for a large blender, so a mini-sized version can get the job done with ease.

Lessons From Duck Soup Recipes

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in food

The other night I was helping my child read a book about ducks, and I was amazed to learn that there are more than 83 types of duck in the world. Having grown up in Minnesota where duck hunting is a popular hobby, I started reflecting on all the different ways that I had eaten duck as a child. I started talking to my child about this and she started laughing. She said that Elmer Fudd was the only duck hunter she knew. I decided right then that I must introduce my child to wonderful duck soup recipes.

Eggs Devaux: A New Recipe for A Delicious Breakfast

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in food

I’m a big fan of breakfast because it’s one of the most important meals of the day, and as of late, I’ve been making a lot of unique breakfast dishes like frittatas and the cloud eggs, which have become very popular on social media. Recently, I opted to try Davy Devaux’s egg recipe, which he named after himself. One of the first places that this delicious egg recipe appeared is on Youtube, and as a result of the deliciousness of dish, the video on how to make it has received millions of views since it first appeared back in 2013.
