Red Beans and Rice - Spicy!

Watching "Wild Kingdom" inspires you to write a cookbook.

Follow along for an Awesome Red Beans and Rice recipe.

Here is what I did, and this is what you will need.


2 Stalks of Celery.
1 Big Onion.
2 Green Peppers (I used Jalapeño Peppers for extra spice instead).
2 Cloves of Garlic (I used a heaped Tbsp of minced Garlic instead).
1 Stick of Butter.
1 Ring of Spicy Sausage of your choice (I used a pack of Hot Links instead).
2 Cans of Red Beans.
1 Cups of water.
1-2 Cups of Long Grain Rice. (Cups depends on how many your feeding).
Spices to me listed later.

I chopped the "The Trinity" of vegetables and sautéed them in butter in my deep Cast Iron Skillet until Onions where translucent. Then I added the 2 cans of Red Beans, liquid and all. I added the 1 cup of water and then turned up the heat to medium. I added the Hot Links taking the skins off, messy but worth it. I like Hot Links skins on or off, all good either way for me, but decided to take the skins off to make the concoction thicker. Worked really well.

At this point I added the Garlic along with all my other Spices.
1/2 tsp of Chili Powder.
1/2 tsp of Red Pepper.
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper.
1/2 tsp of Onion Powder.
1/2 tsp Ancho Chili Powder.
1/2 tsp Salt & Pepper.
1/2 tsp of Garlic Powder.
(Yes I know but I like to add Garlic Powder even if I am using crushed or minced Garlic.)
 As your pot is cooking, make sure to take time to check your seasonings.
 I cooked this for about an hour, lowering the temp after 15-20 minutes to a low Medium, then as the hour drew nearer, lowered the temp again to a low simmer. I can't tell you how delicious these Red Beans and Rice where, well yes actually I can. They where DELICIOUS!!!
 20 mins or so before your ready to eat, cook up your rice. Follow instructions on packet. Then plate and serve, YUMMY!

Deviled Eggs - House Special!

Well I have to tell you that this recipe was cause of some contention in our home as this is my hubbies own personal recipe! However in the spirit of Memorial day weekend and "for the greater good", (Chant - the greater good - Hot Fuzz reference lol), I have permission to share; you are special indeed!

So for this recipe I used the following:

1 Dozen Eggs.
1 Tablespoon of Mayonnaise.
1/2 Tablespoon of Caesar Dressing.
1/2 Tablespoon of Ranch Dressing.
1 Teaspoon of chopped/minced Dill Pickles, reserve 1 teaspoon of   
1/2 Teaspoon of Mustard, we use yellow mustard.
1/2 Teaspoon of White Vinegar.
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Paprika for later, to sprinkle over finished Deviled Eggs.

Boil your eggs. When ready, pop the eggs into a bowl of iced water. This prevents the egg yokes getting that blueish color around the edges. Shell the eggs, then slice them in half. Pop out the yellow yokes into a separate bowl  and place your empty halved egg whites onto a tray. Cover these and place in…
