I was a little hesitant to watch Cooking Channel‘s Tia Mowry at Home initially. I’ve been a fan of Tia Mowry-Hardrict’s acting since she and her twin Tamera starred on Sister, Sister in the ’90s. I became an even bigger fan of hers when she starred on The CW/BET‘s The Game. The Deuce even watches her on Nickelodeon‘s Instant Mom. So to see that she was now hosting a cooking show threw me for a loop. But recently, I recorded a few of the episodes and I am very impressed with her natural presence on camera and the fabulous recipes that she makes on the show.
Here are some of my favorites from her cooking show that I want to try.
I first had seafood paella at Sangria in Royal Oak, Michigan (now closed) many years ago. I have been dying to make this dish for quite some time. I have been a little intimidated to do so. But Tia’s version is too doggone easy for me not to make it. Update: I made it!
Tia made this dish on her Breakfast for Dinner episode. But they are perfect for enjoying any time of the day. Yummy goodness from a greased muffin tin.
Not yo’ Momma’s french toast! Crusty Italian bread, rolled oats, chocolate-hazelnut spread and more. MMMMMM!
Tomato Pop Micheladas Recipe (A twist on a Bloody Mary)
This picture doesn’t do justice for this cocktail recipe. The finished product involves putting those frozen tomato popsicles into a large glass of cold Mexican beer with a rim rubbed in a celery salt/chili powder mixture. I don’t even drink Bloody Marys and I can’t wait to try this one!
Make your own tater tots! Perfect for kids and adults.
So easy and simple to make! Awesome spin on a salad course. Recipe includes a chive mayo dressing too.
Great stuff, right? Check out visits from Tia’s celebrity friends, former co-stars, and family. Three seasons of episodes from Tia Mowry at Home are available on the Cooking Channel.
