Boswell Seasoned Salt

Recipes in this PostBoswell Seasoned Salt

This is the recipe for the not so famous Boswell Seasoned Salt.  I make this because it does not have anti-caking additives or anything else I can’t pronounce. It’s a bit on the spicy side, and you could add other spices to it to make it your own. Enjoy!

Boswell Seasoned Salt

Ingredients

1/2 cup Kosher or Sea Salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

    Mix all the ingredients together well, and put in a jar, cover and keep in a cool dry place.

Notes

If you want your salt to be a little spicier, add more cayenne. If you want to give it a little smokey flavor, then add a little dried chipotle powder.

Chicken Stew by Douglas

Chicken Stew

This recipe is courtesy of Spane’s father, Douglas. When we were dating, before Spane was born, he came by and offered to fix dinner for us. He went to the store and bought everything he needed, except the spices. He knew I had myriad spices and that I would have just what he wanted.

I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty this was. I thought of it this weekend and made it, but I reduced the amounts for just Spane and I. Spane was hungry, he got three thighs! Actually, with a salad, or other side dishes, this could easily make enough for 12 people, if each person is allocated one chicken thigh.

Hasselback Potatoes in the Microwave

So I was hunting around Big Oven one night, getting hungry and trying to find something interesting to make with our dinner. It had to be visually appealing, and it had to go in the microwave, because a) I didn’t want to heat up the house, b) I was hungry! When I saw a picture of these, I was intrigued, and even though all recipes said to put use the oven, I figured the microwave would work just fine. I was right, it did.

Braised Pork with Leek Sauce

Recipes in this PostBriased Pork with Leek Sauce

I was surprised at just how good this came out when I made it. Even Spane liked it once I explained what leeks are.

Leeks, I have told him and others, are a mildly sweet member of the onion family. They look like giant green onions. The only part that is edible is the white part, the green part is too tough to eat. No matter, there is plenty of the white part.

You don’t have to use a pork loin to make this. Pork chops would be fine. You could even use a rather tough piece of beef that does well with braising.

Fettuccine with Sauteed Chicken and Asparagus

Fettuccine with sautéed Chicken and AsparagusRecipes in this Post

So, Friday, I bought asparagus and didn’t use it. Saturday was the 4th of July, and asparagus just didn’t seem to want to go with Nesco ribs, potato salad, and beans. They are much too delicate and cultured a vegetable for that, although, if I were able to grill in Glendale, they would do nicely there as well.

This is a very easy dish to throw together, and makes a nice Sunday meal. It’s quite filling, and goes nicely with a light salad.
