(Short for Rescue Recipes).. dishes to save your night!

It's finally here!!

My name is Kenyatta Smith a career firefighter-paramedic for the city of Cincinnati Ohio and a published cook.
In the firehouse culture, life evolves around the kitchen and mainly the cook.
Sharing cross cultural meals on a daily basis brings harmony in our chaotic world.

Rescupies is the perfect destination for every occasion! Try the delicious "Spring to it Chicken" for your next night in, the        "Rosemary Lamb Chops" as an intimate dinner for two and the "Monterey Chicken Chili" for a large group celebration.
In this first series of Rescupie cards you will find a collection of recipes that will save your palates from ordinary taste and give it the much needed jaws of life!

My inspiration for cooking comes from watching my family challenge each other with creative dishes, in keeping up with that tradition, I challenge myself by creating new twists on traditional meals and experimenting on my fellow co workers who have become my ultimate food critics (if you cook a bad meal in the firehouse you will hear about it until the day you retire).
This card series is dedicated to the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and to my mother the late
Gwendolyn Ann Smith-Turner.

These meal cards are a sweet treat to rescue you from the boredom of the traditional meal,
I hope these Rescupies will inspire you & save your night!
