More Rum For Your Money

If you’re anything like me then you might have a serious sweet tooth! Like hiding from your dentist serious lol! As adults we also have a thing for alcohol too! Why not combine the two and get a buzz and have a snack? These fried rum cake bites have  literally hit the spot and are my current favorite for a late night snack.



  • Your choice of bundt cake. I used angel food cake for this recipe.
  • 3/4 cup of rum. ( you can add more depending on how strong you want your bite to be.)
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Veggie Oil
  • Rum of your Choice
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Cream cheese frosting (optional)


  1. In a bowl take your bundt cake and break it into smaller piece. Make sure they are not too small and try to make the pieces cubed.
  2. Pour the rum into a bowl with the cubed cake. Add the lemon juice and mix.
  3. On medium heat fry the cake bites in veggie oil until they turn a golden brown.
  4. Place in a bowl or large goblet and let cool.
  5. Drizzle cream cheese frosting on top ( optional)
  6. Add powdered sugar to top.
  7. ENJOY!!!

Rule The Roost

Rotisserie chicken is a classic! You can purchase them at the hot bar in your favorite super markets or fast food chains. Well honey, Boston Market won’t have nothing on you once you make this simple yet delish bird for your family and friends! Pair it with any side and BOOM you have a meal! Let’s get into this bird!

rotis. chicken 1




  1. Whole Chicken ( usually about 4-5 lbs)
  2.  Paprika ( I liked to use smoked paprika.  Something about that extra zing of flavor gets me every time)
  3. 2-4 Tablespoons of olive oil
  4. 1-2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  5. 1-2 teaspoons of onion powder
  6. sat and pepper
  7. 1 tablespoon of butter



  • Clean off your chicken. Rinse it off and then squeeze some lemon juice inside the cavity as well as on the outside.
  • Pat dry the bird once it has been cleaned.
  • In a bowl mix together the olive oil, paprika, garlic and onion powder. Make sure the spices and seasonings are well combined.
  • Using a brush or your hands rub the spice mix on to the outside of the chicken and inside the cavity. Make sure it is coated well! We want all of the flavoring to really seep through.
  • Cover and set in refrigerator for 30 mins -24 hrs. ( This step is optional and the time truly depends on you. I personally like to leave my bird to marinate for 24 hours to really let those flavors stick and settle.)
  • Once you are ready to cook . Add the tablespoon of butter inside the chicken. Place inside oven uncovered for about 1 hour and 15 mins on 350 degree. Don’t forget  every 20 mins to base your chicken with the juices it will release. This will keep it tender and moist.
  • If you like your skin to be crispy such as I, you can set your oven to broil for about 3-5 min. That will brown and crisp the top up very nicely.
  • Serve.

The Journey Begins

For me cooking is liberating. It allows me to be creative. Sometimes that’s what we need. Our lives become so repetitive that we just need a burst of creativity. Cooking does just that. It is my zen and I am happy to share that with you all.
