Mini-Polenta Muffin Croutons

I make soup at my friends house as she hosted a ladies cooking class at her house. I wanted to make croutons but something a little different.  I decided to make these mini-muffin croutons and each person can crumble on top of the soup.  These were a big hit.

Note:  These are not a muffin consistency as you would consider a "muffin".  These are more of a crouton texture.  Great for a salad or soup!  You can also add some cheddar cheese, chopped jalapeño or even chopped scallions to the batter!

Mixed Seafood in a Tomato Sauce

This dish was created to use up some seafood I had in the freezer.  Sometimes while at City Fish I get extra fish.  It's an Italian thing - Just in case!  We never know if last minute friends are coming over for dinner therefore I always have enough.....  You know just in case!  I freeze what we don't cook up and use.

I love (as you can imagine) tomato sauce and decided to make one but with all of the fish I had handy.  I defrosted the fish earlier in the day.  You can use any seafood you have handy or decide to pick up for this dish!  This goes great with your favorite pasta or spaghetti squash.

Mole-Style Pork Chops

This recipe was inspired when my girlfriend Diana came to the lake for the day and we always have fun in the kitchen.  I was at our local butcher Stearns getting filet mignon for my son Steven.  (Yes I know he is still spoiled) I saw the pork on the counter and the butcher cut several pieces for me fresh.  Their meats are awesome and everyone is always helpful and happy!

Anyway Diana and I started mixing these spices together and realized we were making Mole!  The flavors made this amazing fresh pork another level of perfection that we all enjoyed.  

This paleo recipe is perfect for pork or even chicken!  Go ahead it is so easy and the cocoa really bring the flavors to an amazing level.

Enjoy.
