What does it really take to enjoy life? Many of us are so busy in our day to day lives that we forget to enjoy the simple goodness that is all around us. A great cup of coffee to start the day. A quick, simple marinade that makes dinner special. Something to share with good friends that doesn't have to break the bank. That's the types of things you will find here.
This past week, I had the opportunity to participate in an event at the Copernicus Center in Chicago that was called The Feastival. The event featured a cooking demonstration by Chef Michael Niksic where he featured a demonstration on how to prepare Drunken Kielbasa.
1 cup chili sauce
1 cup bourbon
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 pounds sliced kielbassa sausage
Mix first three ingredients together. Pour over thinly sliced sausage in casserole dish. Bake at 300 F, 2-3 hr., until slices are glazed and sauce has thickened. Can also be done in a crock pot.
