Spicy Baked Chickpeas
(3X5 Recipe Format)


  •  2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas

  •  2 tablespoons olive oil

  •  1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  •  Pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste

  •  Kosher salt


Kerry's Beef Short Ribs

  • 6-7 lbs.-meaty beef bone-in short ribs

  • Kosher salt

  • Fresh ground pepper

  • flour

  • Olive oil

  • 1 pkg. Knorr French Onion soup mix

  • 1 bottle cabernet sauvignon

  • 1-2 cans beef broth

  • 3 carrots

  • mushrooms

Trim excess fat from short ribs.  Sprinkle ribs liberally with kosher salt and pepper.  Dredge ribs in flour shaking off excess.  Coat bottom of Dutch oven or oven-safe pot with olive oil; heat to medium high-high heat.  Brown ribs well on all sides in batches (make sure the ribs aren’t too crowded at the bottom of the pot or they will steam, rather than brown).  Drain ribs on paper towels.  If the oil and flour are burned after browning wipe pot with paper towels.

Bring bottle of wine and soup mix to a simmer and add ribs.  Ribs do not need to be completely covered—if more than an inch or so of ribs remains uncovered by liquid add beef broth as to bring up level of liquid.

Place pot in center of preheated 325 degrees oven for about 3 hours.  Occasionally (once or twice) stir to flip top ribs to bottom of the pot. 

Cool pot, then refrigerate over night. 

About four hours before serving remove ribs from fridge and, using a spoon, remove excess fat from top of pot.  At this point it is often easy to remove bones from ribs (they usually just slide out).  This leaves room in pot for carrots and mushrooms, and makes it easier to serve ribs.

Return ribs to 325 degrees oven; about an hour before serving put in carrots (peeled and cut into about 2 ½” pieces and slice mushrooms (I usually put in as many as I have room for). 

Serve with mashed or roasted potatoes.

Clementine Jicama Salad
(3X5 Recipe Format)

  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

  • 8 clementines (1 3/4 pounds), peeled and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices

  • 1 pound jicama, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick matchsticks (3 cups)

  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced

  • 3/4 cup packed cilantro sprigs

  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco or mild feta

  • 1/3 cup raw green (hulled) pumpkin seeds (pepitas), toasted


Mince and mash garlic to a paste with 1/2 teaspoon salt, then whisk together with lime juice, oil, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl.

Just before serving, add clementines, jicama, onion, and cilantro and gently toss. Season with salt. Sprinkle with cheese and pumpkin seeds.

Cooks notes:

  • Vinaigrette can be made 4 hours ahead and kept at room temperature.

  • Clementines, jicama, and onion can be cut 4 hours ahead and chilled.

(3X5 Recipe Format)

  • 4 tablespoons flour

  • 4 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa

  • 1 egg

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 3 tablespoons oil

  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) A small splash of vanilla extract

  • 1 large coffee mug (Microwave safe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.  Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.  Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.  Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.  The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!  Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.  EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?  Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

Six-Pack Chili
Print Version

 Recipe courtesy of Peter Skottegard of Mason, OH for the Manly Man Chili Cook-Off

Kit Carson's last words were, "I wish I had time for one more bowl of chili." He had the right idea - you shouldn't take anything too seriously, except maybe chili. Chili was given to us by the gods especially to go with good music, good friends, good beer, and good times. If this recipe doesn't do that for you, then you don't have a pulse.

1 6-pack of Corona beer, chilled

2 1/2 lb tri-tip roast, cut into 1/2" cubes

  • 2 1/2 lb ground chuck

  • 1/2 tablespoons dried Mexican oregano

  • 7 tablespoons Gephardt's chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 2 large Vidalia onions, diced

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 1/2 can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, diced (about 4-5)

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced

  • 1 4-oz can diced green chilies

  • 15-oz can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • Masa Harina

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Sour cream

  • Your favorite salsa

1.  Drink a beer and read the directions.

2.  In a large Dutch oven brown the beef with 2 TBL chili powder. Drain the fat, but don't go overboard cause there's lots of flavor in there. Add two beers, the rest of the chili powder, oregano, cumin, paprika and get it to start to boil. Simmer for an hour.

3.  Have a beer to reward yourself for all that hard work.

4.  Heat up a skillet and caramelize the onions. During the last couple of minutes, add the garlic and sauté. Add onion and garlic to the chili along with chipotles, jalapeno, green chilies, red bell pepper, and tomato's. Simmer another 1-2 hours.

5.  You'll want another beer here. Make sure your friends have put on some kickin tunes.

6.  Add sugar and vinegar. Whisk together equal parts of Masa Harina and cold water (I use about 1/3 cup each). Bring to a boil and stir until it thickens. Season to taste.

7.  Ladle into bowls, top with sour cream and salsa. Serve hot sauce on the side.

8.  Open your final beer and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Try not to get a swelled head from all the compliments.
