Columbian Chicken Soup


I adore creating new soups. Especially this time of year when it's chilly outside and we want to be healthier!  


Fish Delish is so versatile, hand blended from thyme, Greek oregano, basil, rosemary, sage, orange zest, lemon zest and fennel. It is truly fantastic on fish, chicken and veggies.


The Columbian Chicken Soup is a hearty yet healthy chicken and potato soup with corn and a wonderful salsa on top. I also served this with a savory whipped cream, optional, but added a richness.


I made may own chicken stock, but to make this a quick and easy soup, you can use store-bought stock and use shredded chicken.


A nice ice-cold Corona goes beautifully with this soup!


Wine and Spice makes everything nice!

Stuffed Poblano Peppers with Easy Mole Sauce

spp1.jpg

I adore Mexican foods.  Love playing with all the fantastic ingredients, today I decided to stuff  poblano peppers and make a fabulous Mole sauce using It’s a Mad, Mad, Mole seasoning. Mole sauce is something that usually is very time consuming and complicated to make. Using Milford Spice’s Mole seasoning made this a breeze and fantastic!  Not spicy, just enough to tickle your taste buds.  Soooo good!

I hope you enjoy!

Sweet Heat Honey Chipotle Street Tacos


We love our small town of Milford, Michigan. Everyone supports one another, there is a parade for nearly every occasion, stands are packed at the football games, and if anyone is experiencing trying times, you can bet a meal train is in the works. For years a group of committed individuals have been laser focused on building a skate park in the village, a place for the youth to go and get out to enjoy the fresh air and a little exercise. We are super proud and excited to announce Milford Spice Company has donated 1000 packs of our best selling HONEY CHIPOTLE, and we hope it will raise at least $1,000 for the cause. The Honey Chipotle is our best seller for good reason, it's incredible on salmon, chicken, shrimp, in soups, on sweet potatoes. Will you consider supporting the Milford Skate Park? 100% of your purchase price will be given to support the park. You'll receive a two ounce pack, with a nifty skate park label, as seen in the above photos.

Chicken Provencal


This is an elegant version of comfort food! Juicy chicken thighs paired with cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, and a creamy sauce. Yum…


I used Wordhouse Wow in this dish because of the lovely blend of granulated garlic, white lemon pepper, parsley flakes, tarragon and chervil. Very sophisticated and absolutely delicious.


This is one of my favorite blends for egg dishes, salads and dressings, dipping oil, fish and chicken.


A nice cold glass of White Shiraz pairs really well with this dish.

Cauliflower Mushroom Risotto


I love substituting cauliflower for many different starches. Today I decided to try my hand at a risotto using Johnny Pizza. This flavorful mix is hand blended with Mediterranean oregano, basil, garlic, onion, thyme, fennel seed, red bell pepper, crushed red pepper, parsley and marjoram. Fabulous as an Italian blend or amazing in your pizza sauce or my favorite—bake it into the crust! You can also use it to add pizzaz to a frozen pizza.


You can vary this recipe to accommodate any diet. I used parmesan cheese but you can use brewers yeast just as well. If you are using real cheese make sure you get a chunk of parmesan and freshly shred for the recipe, it makes all the difference!


This risotto is so rich and creamy! You will not miss the rice.


A nice glass of Chianti Classico tasted fabulous with this dish.

Perfect Chicken Soup


This cold/flu season has been brutal! Lots of runny noses and coughing at my house, so I decided to make a healing, feel-better soup. My Instant Pot is one of my new favorite kitchen tools. Not only does is cook quick, but it infuses so much flavor. The cooked chicken is tender and juicy, practically falling off the bones.


You can also make this soup in a crock pot or on the stove top. In a crock pot it takes 8-10 hours on low, stove top simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Use the same directions.


For my soup today I am using Perfect Chicken Soup Mix (Perfect Poultry). It is hand blended with just the right balance of freshly ground marjoram, thyme, oregano, sage and rosemary. One of my favorite salt-free blends.


You can literally use any combination of veggies that you wish. I used a traditional blend of carrots, celery, onion and peas. I made the noodles separately and placed in my bowl before the soup itself. I find that if you add the noodles as part of the soup, the soup gets gummy and the noodles mushy.


I think you will love this soup!

Instant Pot Green Chili Chicken Soup

Instant Pot Green Chili Chicken Soup

After the holidays we all like to eat a little lighter. I had some green chilies in the freezer and decided to try a soup (if you do not have frozen green chilies, canned from the grocery store is fabulous as well). Cooking in the Instant Pot is so amazingly easy! This soup is light, flavorful and great on a cold day. Freezes great!


I decided to use Adobo Lime. I love this in my Green Chili Stew, perfect complement to the green chilies. Adobo Lime is hand blended with fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary. Fantastic on beef, chicken, seafood and veggies.

An ice cold Corona Light with a lime is perfect with this dish!

Big Easy Bourbon Molasses is truly one of my absolute favorites!  It is flavorful and bold with the smoke of bourbon barrel smoked salt, a touch of bitter sweet with natural granulated black strap molasses from New Orleans, and other flavors to give you a unique taste of Louisiana. 


Today I decided to immerse myself in the South.  I made Bourbon Molasses Shrimp, succulent and so flavorful!  I served with white cheddar cheese grits and sautéed collard/mustard greens.

We have a new partnership with Gourmet Gary’s Natural Foods.  He has the most amazing beef and seafood, sustainably raised without any hormones, antibiotics, or any GMO's.  To see Gary's introduction, chick here.

Today I used the Prawns.  They are huge, plump and sweet.  You get two, 2 lb frozen sleeves in a box.  I seasoned them with our new Louisiana Blackened Seasoning.  This is a SALT FREE mix hand blended from paprika, garlic, yellow mustard, onion, black pepper, oregano, cumin, cayenne, thyme, bay leaves and celery seed.  It has a touch of heat and is great as a traditional blackening seasoning or as a dry rub.  It has an amazing complex flavor.

Lemon Risotto


I wanted to make a side dish that made my Blackened Prawns sing.  What complements Prawns better than a Lemon Risotto!  Creamy, lemony, luscious risotto!

I seasoned this risotto with our Citrus Sea Salt.  This is hand blended from smoked sea salt, ginger, lemon, lime and orange zest, and a hint of black pepper.  It is incredible on green beans, fresh or roasted tomatoes and asparagus.  Also great on fish and chicken.   We love to squeeze a little fresh lemon, lime or orange juice first and then add the salt.

While this dish takes a little time, it is really easy and well worth the effort.

Any ice cold Italian Moscato works great with this dish.

Best Burger Ever!


Nothing says summer like grilling burgers!  Juicy, cheesey and flavorful!  This is a mini tutorial on how to make the Best Burgers Ever!


A couple of key points!  1) Buy freshly ground meat from the butchers counter-needs to be 80/20, anything leaner is too dry. You want beef that has been processed as little as possible and that is loosely packed.  Anything in a tube in too tight.  The extra effort is totally worth it!  2) Minimal handling when mixing at home!  3) Indentation. Make a thumb print in the middle of each patty.  This helps cook it evenly.  4) DO NOT press down with spatula!  This makes the juices flow out (bad) and compresses the meat (bad).


These are truly the best burgers that I have made.  As with seasoning any  dish, you can use any spice blend that sounds good.  Same with burgers, your imagination is the limit.  Play with the toppings, buns, condiments and cheeses.  Some ideas to try are:


Brighton’s Burger Blast:

 - Cheddar, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion.  Basic Condiments


Mark’s Expresso II:

- Blue Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion & Whole Grain Mustard


Cow Conditioner:

- Swiss and Caramelized Onions, Dijon Mustard 


Kenny’s East Texas Cajun:

- Pepper Jack with Caramelized Onion and Green Peppers, Mustard


Tantalizing Thai:

- Jack Cheese, Fresh Pineapple & Teriyaki Sauce


Pontiac Trail Pig Powder:

- Smoked Gouda, Caramelized Onions & BBQ Sauce


Big Easy Bourbon Molasses:

- Brie, Roasted Red Bell Pepper & Fig Jam


Evening in Tuscany:

- Fresh Mozzarella, Tomato & Pesto


Fabulous Fajitas:

- Queso Cheese & Salsa


Mix and match the toppings too!  Some fun thoughts:


Assorted Cheeses

Lettuce

Tomato

Onion

Onion Rings

Pineapple

Caramelized Onions

Roasted Red Bell Pepper

Over Easy Egg

Bacon

Mornay Sauce


Also play with the condiments:


Various Ketchups

Assorted Mustards

Sriracha Sauce

Mayo

Salsa

Teriyaki Sauce

Sweet & Sour Sauce

Pesto

BBQ Sauce


Any iced cold beer works with this dish!

Vegan Tikka Masala




I am beginning to really love Vegetarian and/or Vegan entrees once or twice a week. It makes you feel soo good! My daughters and I adore Indian food and decided to try a vegan version of Tikka.

MSC Tikka Masala is hand blended from guajillo chili powder, bay leaves, smoked sweet paprika, turmeric, roasted garlic, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, cumin, fenugreek, cardamom, nutmeg and cloves.

A lot of recipes call for a can of coconut milk and yogurt. I chose to make mine without. The result is a light and delicious Tikka Masala. But, you certainly can add one or both, but not needed.

The flavor is amazing! A touch of heat, just enough to tickle your taste buds.

A lovely glass of Pinto Grigio pairs beautifully with this dish.

Baked Zucchini Coins


Who doesn’t adore the bounty towards the end of summer? Zucchini has been plentiful and delicious. I tried something similar to this recipe at a restaurant years ago and thought it would be fun to replicate.


Today I used Louisiana Red Beans & Rice, this is hand blended from onion, garlic, parsley, celery, cumin, cayenne, bay leaf and red pepper flakes. The name is deceiving as you can use this very versatile blend in just about anything! It is a bit smokey with just a hint of heat and is great in anything from beans (check out Instant Pot Baked Beans) to salad dressing.


This is great as an appetizer on warm summer nights! I used a ranch dressing to dip the coins in, but you can use any type of dipping sauce you wish.


An iced cold Blue Moon beer paired really well with this.

Recipe courtesy of Marie Kelly, Milford Kitchen.

This fantastic salad with couscous and spring vegetables was created by Marie Kelly from Milford Kitchen. The recipe uses asparagus and spring onions which are excellent this time of year. The chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans or chi-chi beans) complement this healthy salad with their crunchy goodness and are also high in fiber and protein.


The dressing is seasoned with Moroccan Vegetable Rub from Milford Spice Company. This spice blend is blended from cumin, coriander, chili powder, smoked sweet paprika, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cayenne and cloves. It will add a delicious pop of flavor to the salad.
