Recipe: Chicken Enchilada Soup

My wife has been a big fan of this type of soup for a long time, but this is only the first or second time I’ve attempted to make it for her myself. Fortunately, it turned out so well that I had to record the recipe for the future. To make it fancier, you can leave out the sour cream and cheese and instead add these as a garnish in individual bowl, along with a small sprig of cilantro.


Recipe: Teriyaki Marinade

I got tired of buying small bottles of marinade for $3+ every time I wanted teriyaki chicken or beef, so I went Googling to find how to make it myself. As usual, I found a wide variety of recipes with different ingredients, so I cherry-picked what I liked from each. This is the result, suitable for 1 – 2 pounds of meat. This could also be thickened with arrowroot powder or cornstarch and served over vegetables.


Recipe: Basic Hummus

Now that I’ve pretty much switched to a “slow-carb” diet based on the one Tim Ferriss uses, I wanted something to give raw vegetables some flavor. I’ve enjoyed hummus for years, but usually on pita bread, which I’m not eating right now. Like most of my recipes, I arrived at this one by combining the aspects I liked from a number of recipes found while searching Google.


Recipe: Chicken Souvlaki Pizza

I was feeling creative this weekend. I wanted chicken pizza, but I also wanted Greek food, so I just decided to mix the two. Since I’m still following a slow-carb diet, I used a whole wheat low-carb tortilla instead of the pita, which wasn’t bad. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.


Review: Rich Dad's Prophecy

I recently finished reading Rich Dad’s Prophecy by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter, and I must say it gave my paradigm a real working over. To be honest, it scared me half to death! Not really for myself, since I’ve never believed that I’d get any of the money back that’s gone from my paychecks to Social Security. I just consider that yet another tax. Nor have I planned to fund my retirement via 401K.
