Maui’s Wayfinder Sunrise

Maui’s Wayfinder Sunrise

Maui’s Wayfinder Sunrise is a tasty tropical treat that is perfect for those warm summer evenings coming our way (and remembering them during the cold winter nights!). Inspired by Disney’s Moana, this is a really simple recipe. You can leave it virgin, add a shot of rum, serve on its own, or make it into a blended drink by adding ice – there are lots of options! No matter which way you have it (and I’ve done them all to make sure. Quality control and everything.) it will be delicious.

The prep is easy. You’ll need pineapple juice, guava nectar, mango nectar, and cream of coconut. Simple, right? All of these can be found at most grocery stores. I recommend looking in the international and/or latin food section for the guava and mango nectars. Jumex makes the mango nectar in single cans, and if you’re planning to make this recipe and you aren’t sure you’ll like it, that’s just the right size.

Just measure everything directly into a blender. If you aren’t putting ice in it, you don’t have to use the blender, but I’ve found that the cream of coconut sometimes needs to be blended in or it just stays clumpy. It seems to depend on the brand I buy and whether or not its in a bottle or a can, but its just easier to blend it. And its pretty awesome with ice, made into a slushy type drink.

Pulse it a few times until it is mixed and/or reaches the level of slushiness you want, and then pour into a glass. Its thick and sweet and tropical and sometimes it works for me as a dessert on its own!

We’ll be using this at the Moana dinner and movie party in May – its a perfect way to start the evening!

Did you try it? What did you think?

Louis’ Favorite Chicken Gumbo – Princess and the Frog Inspired Dinner!

Louis’ Favorite Chicken Gumbo – Princess and the Frog Inspired Dinner!

After watching The Princess and the Frog the other night, I had the urge to try to make something more like what Tiana would cook in her restaurant. I ruled out beignets (at least this time) because I didn’t have the time, and while I love a good pastry, I don’t need to eat a million of them. So instead, we decided on chicken and sausage gumbo.

This version I created from several recipes I’ve found online and in cookbooks. If I had to tell you one specific recipe it was adapted from, I’d say probably Emeril’s – but it was more than just one! I bought file powder months ago with the intention of making gumbo, so the research had already been in the works. This evening just seemed to be the ideal time to try it!

I went out with my list of ingredients and picked up the few things I needed. Mostly it was the andouille sausage and peppers. I like red bell peppers better than green, so I almost never have those on hand. But I was warned in the past by friends that red wouldn’t taste the same in the “trinity” of onions, celery, and peppers, so I wanted to make sure I bought the right thing!

Now, before we get into making this, I must give you one disclaimer – I have no connections to Louisiana (outside of a few friends) and I’ve never been there. So I fully admit that this may not be “true” Louisiana gumbo – its just my take on the dish. I’ve tried to do it justice.

Onto the process – the first thing you want to do is chop up all the vegetables and pull out all the spices. I had plans to take lovely pictures of all the ingredients all lined up, but I made this and had to empty the spice cabinet to find a couple things and it kind of looked like my kitchen exploded. So I didn’t. I’m sorry.

Once you have all of that together, you are going to pull out a big stock pot and put it over medium-high heat. I also like to put the chicken stock into another pot on the stove to heat – putting hot liquid in the pot really helps, rather than cold. It isn’t mandatory, but I would encourage you to try it!

The first part of this recipe is getting the roux made and to the proper color. A roux is simply a mixture of flour and fat that you whisk together and cook to get the flour taste out, and toasty flavor in. Depending on how long you cook it, and the color it turns, the flavor can be mild or seriously nutty. Its other purpose, and probably the biggest purpose, is to thicken whatever you’re putting it in.

For this recipe, I used bacon drippings that I had in the fridge. Not exactly low-cal, but its BACON. How can this possibly be wrong? Anyway, you’re going to put a whole cup of it (I didn’t have quite enough, so I added a little butter – bacon and butter. Yum.) in your pan and let it melt. When it is completely melted, you’re going to whisk in a cup of flour. You want it smooth, and you’re going to continue to whisk it until your roux turns a nice chocolate brown. At first you’ll think that it will NEVER change color. But once it starts, it goes fast! When you are doing this part, don’t answer the phone or wander away from the pot. The second you do it will turn black, and that’s not a good thing. If it gets black flakes in it, its burnt, and you’ll have to throw it all out and start over. No one wants that!

Once that’s done, you can ditch the whisk and use a wooden spoon. Grab your diced veggies, because now you need to add your “trinity” – the green pepper, onion, and celery. Let it cook for a few minutes (about 5) stirring it often. Then dump in the sliced andouille. At this point, it should smell pretty good. Next, add your spices.

I will caution you about one thing – I marked the cayenne pepper as optional. I am a total wuss when it comes to hot things. I’ve gotten better since I got married because my husband likes spicier dishes. But I haven’t got a lot of heat tolerance. I would recommend holding the cayenne until the end, when it has had a chance to cook and you can taste it. I forgot that creole seasoning has cayenne in it already. So when I added everything in mine, I realized it was a teeny bit more spicy than I intended. It was still good, and I could eat it, but I figured I’d warn you.

Either way, stir in the spices before you add the liquid, because it lets them get a little bit of heat on them and can toast a bit. Just stir them in for about a minute, and pour in 3 quarts of chicken broth, the sugar, and the Worcestershire sauce. Stir this until the mixture is smooth and there aren’t any lumps.

Add the chicken, which you’ve cut into 1-2 inch pieces, and stir. You can use breast or thighs. Many people recommend thighs, but to me it is a personal preference. I don’t really like dark meat, so I chose to use breasts. It worked just fine. Once you stir those in, put it on a low simmer and let it cook for about 45 minutes.

At the end, taste it, add your vinegar and a couple extra teaspoons of file powder, and the cayenne (if you want it), and let it cook a few minutes more.

Then just serve this over white rice, and enjoy! If you try the recipe, I’d love to hear what you think!

  6. Pour over rice and enjoy!
“Fried” Dill Pickles – only without the frying

“Fried” Dill Pickles – only without the frying

I’m going to let you all in on a secret – I’ve got a serious pickle problem. That’s not really a big secret if you’ve actually met me, but it will explain the plethora of pickle jars that exist in my house. And my annual search for the best homemade pickle recipe for canning. I’ve got refrigerator pickles down, but canned ones… But I digress.

Last night, I saw a pic on Instagram of someone eating fried pickles (I can’t find it in my feed anymore, or I’d post it!) and I got a serious hankering for some of the crispy, warm goodness. So I got out a recipe I’d made a while ago and decided to use up the pickles in the fridge.

Its a pretty easy recipe. I recommend two large resealable bags for the flour and breading, because its a lot easier than using your fingers and a bowl.

You can use up pickles for this, or buy a special jar. That’s entirely up to you. I used half a jar of kosher hamburger dill slices and then sliced up the four remaining kosher baby dills from the jar. Only about two actually made it to the batter. Someone ate them. No idea who that could be.

First, drain your pickles in a colander, and then let them sit there while you prep everything else. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees, and line a baking tray with foil. Put a baking rack on top of it. The foil is really just there for easy clean up.

In one of the baggies, you’ll need about one cup of rice flour. You can use regular all purpose, but I happen to think that rice flour just makes it a little crispier, and it sticks better. BUT, if you’re making this on the fly, or you’ll never use rice flour again, don’t make a special trip, okay? (Though I also dredge chicken fingers in it when making Cap’n Crunch Chicken for the same reason, among other things.)

Add pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to the flour. You can add salt, but I don’t. You’re going to put season salt in the breadcrumbs, and you’re breading pickles, and they’re salty already. If you do decide to add some, just add a big pinch. Reseal the bag, toss it around a little, and then its good to go.

In the other bag, pour your bread crumbs, season salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper in, and mix that up.  it may sound redundant to add the same seasonings, but it makes a difference, I promise!

In your bowl, you want to beat one egg with a couple tablespoons of water.

Now that everything is prepped, you’re ready to get to it!

Pour your pickle slices on a large dish towel and pat them dry. They don’t need to be perfect – just not soaking wet anymore.

Now, dump them into your bag of flour it. Seal it (don’t forget this step. Trust me.) and toss them around a bit. I scoop them out with a hand and shake off the excess, or you can use a slotted spoon or a spider. Put them in the egg mixture, and then into the breading. Toss again to coat, and use the slotted spoon (or your hand) to put them in a single layer on the baking rack you’ve prepped.

Fried Dill Pickles

Now, we are baking these, not frying. If you want more “golden brown” on the breading, then lightly spritz the pickles with oil or baking spray.

Fried Dill Pickles

Put in the oven, and bake at 450 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. You may need a little longer, depending on how dark you want it.

Serve them with a little bit of ranch and enjoy! Trust me, make a little more than you think you should. These disappear faster than you think they will.

Pepper Pot Pork Chops

Pepper Pot Pork Chops

This afternoon I decided it was time to try another grill recipe. Since I found two lovely butterfly pork chops at the store the other day, I went on the hunt for a recipe on my list of recipes to attempt – and came across Pepper Pot Pork from Boma! So far, all the things I’ve made from Animal Kingdom restaurant recipes have been awesome. Pepper Pot Pork was not a disappointment!

The original recipe calls for a pork roast and its cooked differently. There are also some differences in the seasonings. But this recipe was really delicious and perfect for the grill on a warm spring evening. (Though it was pretty hot today – we’re quickly working at skipping spring and heading straight for summer!)

The first thing you need to do is pull out a bowl or (my preference) a resealable gallon baggie, and mix up the marinade. This part is easy. Just dump all the ingredients into the bag and then add the pork chops. You can mix it separately in a bowl and pour it in, but this works just fine. I made sure I massaged the pork chops a bit to distribute all the spices and make sure they were covered, but that’s as much fussing as you need to to.

Once its in the marinade, put it in the fridge and leave it for anywhere from 2-4 hours. I recommend putting that baggie down in a bowl, just in case, but its up to you. I only needed the bag to leak once to make me err on the side of caution. No one wants to clean marinade and meat juice from the fridge. Seriously.

So you’ve got a couple hours to kill. Read a book, watch a movie, do something productive. Take a nap. Whatever. When the time’s up, you’ll need to prep your grill, as well as your sauce.

The sauce is also pretty easy – don’t let me list of ingredients throw you off. Just dice your onions and peppers, put your olive oil in the pan and saute them until they begin to get a little tender – anywhere from 5-10 minutes. Once that’s done, you just add all the rest of the ingredients. Make sure all the spices are well mixed in, and let it come to the boil. Once it does, turn the temperature down to medium low and let it simmer for 5-7 minutes. Don’t let this reduce too much – you’ll run out of sauce!

Once its has simmered, you’re going to make a cornstarch slurry – a tablespoon of cornstarch in a couple tablespoons of water or cold stock. Mix it until its smooth, and then pour in about half. Make sure you mix it as you pour it into the pan. At this point, you can add more cornstarch for a thicker sauce, or leave it as is. The thickness is all personal preference! Once you have your cornstarch mixed in, cook about two more minutes and then remove from the heat.

While your sauce is cooking, you’re going to grill the pork chops. I made this with butterflied pork chops and they worked beautifully. There are only two in this recipe, but if you need more, just adjust the amounts as you need to. Its pretty easy to double or even triple it, and it should work out just fine.

I serve this with rice made with vegetable stock, because if I can use flavor instead of water, why not? There is a lot of flavor going on here, so you don’t need seasoned rice. (Though if you want to, do what makes you happy!)

I’m enjoying the grilling part of these recipes because my husband is the grill master (so he’s in charge of cooking that part) and because there is one less dish for me to wash when its all over. Priorities, right? 😉 But whether it is grilled or cooked on the stove top, the flavors are fantastic!

This recipe does differ from the original, which you can see at AllEars.Net if you like. All the same, its a really tasty recipe. I hope you try it, and if you do, I’d love to hear what you think!

The Best Dill Pickle Flavored Popcorn Recipe for a Movie Night!

The Best Dill Pickle Flavored Popcorn Recipe for a Movie Night!

There’s a flavored popcorn stand in EPCOT that I’ve heard many people rave about. And apparently flavored popcorn is a big thing in Disneyland and some of the other parks across the world. What a perfect snack! I mean, who doesn’t love the smell of popcorn? (Unless its burnt. No one, except a friend from college, likes that. She used to hunt down the burned popcorn smell and take it off our hands, so I suppose it wasn’t a bad thing in the end, right?)

I’ve got a fun, tasty flavor for you to try this weekend. If you do a family movie night, this is a fun way to up your popcorn game. Keep an eye out, because I’ve been working on a handful of these. This is just the one I finished first. This spice blend is easily kept in a jar and used a little at a time. While I’m writing a recipe designed to flavor a lot of popcorn, you can easily just sprinkle it with a spoon over your personal bowl, and then everyone can have what they like! That way too, if you follow the blog and get the other recipes (they’re coming soon!) you can pass around the bowls and see which ones you like best.

What flavor are we making? Dill Pickle, of course!

If you like pickles, you’ll like this. Now me, I don’t like pickles. I LOVE pickles. Its a problem. I have no problem sitting and eating an entire jar by myself. Whenever someone tells me it isn’t good for me, I wave and hand and remind them I’m eating vegetables. They seem to think this doesn’t count. Whatever.

If you’re like me, then you should make sure there’s a separate bowl for everyone else. Cause there’s no sharing going on here.

Dill Pickle Popcorn

This is really easy. If you have a spice grinder, you can get fancy and grind your own spices. I like to do this because I think they taste fresher longer, but its not necessary. Mixing preground spices works just as well. The hardest thing to find for any of these recipes will probably be the citric acid. Its usually in the canning section of the store, or you can order it online. You don’t need very much – only a 1/4 tsp for the whole recipe! One container will  last you a long time.

Dill Pickle Popcorn Seasoning
This recipe makes quite a bit. Only use what you need – you should get a couple batches of popcorn out of this!

To do this recipe, you measure out your spices (if you’re using any whole spices) into a spice grinder, and pulse them all together. Be careful when you remove the top, because some of the spices, especially those that were already ground, will be a really fine powder. If you get too close to the puff of spice that comes out when you take off the lid, it will go straight up your nose. Ask me how I know. If you don’t have any whole spices, just measure everything into a small bowl and mix well with a spoon. I would recommend using fine grain sea salt or popcorn salt if you go this method, but that’s a personal preference.

Dill Pickle Popcorn

I cheated for this, and popped a bag of microwave buttered popcorn because I didn’t want to get out the popcorn popper (I have the kind you put on the stove and crank.). If you’re going this route, you won’t get 5 quarts of popcorn. I used about two heaping teaspoons of powder, sprinkled it into the bag, and then poured the popcorn into a bowl. You can add as much or as little as you like. If you aren’t sure you’ll like it, I’d start with one teaspoon, toss the popcorn, and then taste. You can add more from there if you like.

 

Its got a lovely dill pickle flavor and a nice pungent sour note that isn’t too strong. Before you know it, you’ll be staring at the bottom of an empty bowl and hunting down the next bag of popcorn!

What other popcorn flavors would you love to see?

Dill Honey Mustard

Dill Honey Mustard

You may be wondering why I’m putting a recipe for homemade mustard up here. You’re probably thinking, “Its not related to Disney, and I can pick up a bottle for so much cheaper at the store.” Let me put your mind at ease.

The mustard isn’t tied to Disney by itself. That’s true. It is, however, going to get used in several recipes I have planned. And seriously, if you like mustard like I do, making your own is the next step. All those fancy little pots of mustard with different additives – champagne, honey, cider, etc – will have nothing on what you can make yourself.

And its SO EASY.

No, really. It takes next to no effort. Just a little patience.

You have to get whole grain mustard seeds – which are available in the spice aisle, or at specialty stores like the Spice and Tea Exchange here in Williamsburg. I’ve also ordered from World Spice Merchants. They’re both good. You only need a couple tablespoons to start out, so don’t buy a ton. (Or do – if you’re like me, you’ll need them eventually.) You also need some apple cider vinegar, dried dill, dried mustard powder, and some local honey. (I’m all about buying local – and it usually tastes better than the cheap stuff at the store which may not be all real honey in the first place)

That’s it.

Measure out two tablespoons of each kind of mustard seed. I put mine in a mason jar, but anything with a lid will work. You’re going to pour about 1/4 cup of vinegar over the seeds. Close the jar. Leave it out on the counter to soak 24 hours. You can let it go up to 48, but it doesn’t make too much difference. I only did  it because I got sidetracked.

So a day later, you’re going to put that mustard seed and vinegar mixture into a food processor, blender, or smoothie machine. Add about 2 teaspoons of dill, a 2 teaspoons of the dried mustard, and a tablespoon or two of honey. How much honey will depend on how sweet you like your mustard. You want more bite? Add a little less.

dill honey mustard
I left mine with a lot of mostly whole grains. You can leave them even more intact, or go really smooth.

Now, this part really depends on your taste preferences. If you want lots of whole mustard seeds, you can blend only a few pulses. If you want smoother, blend longer. When it has a consistency you like, pour it into a jar and close it. You can taste if you want, but you’ll be disappointed. The mustard really needs to sit in the jar for about a week before you eat it. It needs that long to let the flavors hang out and make beautiful music together. I didn’t believe it either the first time I made this stuff, but it really, really makes the difference.

After a week, feel free to use it on whatever you like. I love this stuff – the only mustard I love more is Hot Pepper Mustard, which I’ll post a recipe for later on. Just make sure to keep some of this mustard around. You’re going to need it for some of the recipes I’m planning!

The recipe will make one small jar, but if you need more, you can easily scale this up to make any amount you like. Just remember that it isn’t canned or sealed, so it has to stay refrigerated.
