I always describe Dragon Fruit as, “The Cookies and Cream” fruit, though, it has the texture of a Kiwi, it looks just like ice cream when you split them open. They grow like flowers on Cacti plants in Mexico and are known as Pitaya or Pitahaya. They are also cultivated in Southeast Asia, the United States, Israel, Australia, Cyprus and the Canary Islands.
Where to find Dragon Fruit
I found Dragon Fruit at my local Oriental Market. I bought the last two they had and I paid $1.98 a pound. I think, between the two, they weighed about 1 1/2 pounds is all. So they really didn’t cost me that much. But people have told me that these can be ridiculously priced in standard grocery markets. I’ve heard upwards of even $8 dollars a piece; which is crazy but if you can find them at lower price, I highly recommend you try one. I like to squeeze lime juice over the top of mine. So if you find them, pic up a lime or two for a little extra seasoning because the Dragon fruit tastes like a mild Kiwi.

When I think of Beef Stew, I’m reminded of those Sunday afternoon dinners my family would have after several hours of church. The only problem was that any stew that my Mom made wasn’t very good because it was always runny, watered down and flavorless. So when I set out to make Beef Stew for my own family now, I follow one simple rule; make it better than Mom’s recipe(which isn’t hard to do BTW). But don’t let this sob story fool you. This recipe is amazing and I even show you how to cheat!
How do I make Beef Stew
All I do is cook a thick hearty soup with fresh chopped vegetables from my garden and I add a well seasoned steak. Then I add a few seasonings. That’s it and that’s all. Now I do cheat a little when I don’t have time to make my own Chicken and Brown gravy. But after you try this Beef Stew recipe you’ll quickly understand why I do it. Packaged gravy is cheap, it saves time preparing it and it makes this soup taste phenomenal!
Garlic Parmesan anything, right? Well these Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts are no different and they’re just as delicious as they sound. Maybe even better. I was recently using this exact recipe on Chicken Poppers, which are amazing actually, when I realized Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts would be great for everyone at this years Thanksgiving.
Now just as a reminder, last year, I filmed Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts. So I’d highly recommend checking that recipe out if you missed it or if you’d like to revisit it, because those are really tasty too. And on a side note, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I’ll be plugging several recipes that will help you and your family celebrate this years feast below and in the next few recipe posts before the holiday.
