Before Kaleigh joined the Coast Guard she was a line cook at a upscale restaurant in Portland, ME and before that she learned how to cook growing up in the kitchen with her dad. On this section of the website Kaleigh will be sharing her favorite recipes of her classic American South meets the Last Frontier cuisine and a few kitchen and cooking tips that will have you preparing delicious food like a pro!
SPICY whiskey ginger
Our take on a classic whiskey ginger/kentucky mule is a perfect way to cap off a great day, we swear it tastes like summer sunshine.
5 Tips for Outdoor Cooking
Whether on a mini backpacking stove or a campfire grill, being away from your kitchen conveniences is no excuse to give up on eating delicious food in favor of ramen or hot dogs (though both are also delish).
Golden Chicken Curry
Kaleigh and I often argue about who makes a better curry. She follows her recipe to more of a T and I tend to throw my ingredients into the pot by feel. Both curries are delicious, and because it's definitely easier to follow a real recipe than try to describe sprinklings, dashes and spoonfuls, I've enlisted her help to share one of our favorite one pot wonder recipes with you.
Autumn Harvest Hash
Hashes are one of our fall staples because they are easy to make with whatever root veggies and ground meats you have on hand. This is a great meal with a glass of whiskey or wine to warm your soul.
