Dish It Out!’s Blackening Seasoning Recipe.

This recipe is an improved version of the DCS we have used in past recipes. Cajun and Creole Cooking calls for this time and thyme again. We love it on scallops, chicken, fingertips etc. You can vary the amount of salt to taste. We make it in a large amount and keep in a jar next to the stove. The recipe is similar to Chef Sunil’s at the Temple Of The Unusual (Creative Cooking

This Post Is Brought To You By The Letter “D”

debby_holiday1Debby Holiday rules the dance floors and rocks the billboards. Her music is delicious, driven and delightful. Her style thrives and inspires. DIO! was lucky enough to get time with her for a recent lunch and Debby delivered the goods.

Debby Holiday lit up dance music with her #5 Billboard summer anthem  Dive in 2004. Holiday followed the smash hit “Dive” with her power ballad “Half A Mile Away”, which shot into the Billboard Top 10, along with Debby’s follow-up dance hit “Bring It On”.

All of Debby’s subsequent dance singles broke into the Billboard Top 20 including, “Piece of My Love” & “Surrender Me” (with the incredible Tony Moran), “Joyful Sound“, featured in the hit show Sordid Lives: The Series, from writer/director/producer Del Shores, starring Olivia Newton John.

Growing up in Los Angeles, Debby was exposed to many forms of music to encourage her expression. Her father Jimmy Holiday topped the charts with several of his own singles before co-writing smash hits like “Understanding” for Ray Charles and “Put A Little Love In Your Heart” for Jackie De Shannon. Debby’s ears were full of tremendous music to inspire her varied, passionate sound.

In 2012, Debby hit the Billboard Charts twice. Never Give Up with the amazing San Francisco based DJ Phil B soared to #9 in May of 2012.

Debby’s next single, Key To Your Soul (co-written with DJ John LePage & Jeff Fedak) hit #21 & includes an anti-bullying themed video for the song (directed by Del Shores).

Debby recently completed a staring role in the new film Blues For Willadean written by the award winning, Del Shores & co-starring Beth Grant, Oscar Winner Octavia Spencer from The Help.

Her latest single “I Like You” with Grammy Winning Producer/Dj Tony Moran is currently #8 on the Billboard Dance Charts.
