Grill Roasted Tomato Sauce

Grill Roasted Tomato Sauce

With Roasted Veggies

Posted on April 21, 2016
Homemade spaghetti sauce is the ultimate comfort food in my home. Both my mother and father have mastered the marinara, and each have their own unique way of making it. Funnily enough mom is of Irish descent, and father is English/French Canadian - how this Italian food staple became a fixture on the dinner table I will never know. What I do know is that it’s my favorite comfort food. I love to make gigantic batches and freeze it for later. This Grill Roasted Tomato Sauce is a grill-tastic vegetarian version of my childhood favorite and a great way to sneak those veggies in to a meal.

Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad

with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Posted on April 14, 2016
My fantastic grandmother served this salad one evening with dinner. Cucumber Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette is supremely light, and packs a flavor punch that you are not expecting. Adding the onion and carrots elevates this side from possibly pickles to positively divine. It is unexpected and fresh. It would make a great topping for a turkey or veggie burger, or perfect for pretty much any meal where you need a quick and light side.

Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter

Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter

With Fire Roasted Pecans

Posted on April 07, 2016
I love pecans, so when I heard that they have their very own day - April 14th by the way; I just had to make some extra recipes to celebrate. I generally have peanut butter in the house for making Peanut Butter Banana Bread and Peanut Butter BBQ Sauce, but it got me thinking...What if you made peanut butter out of pecans instead of peanuts?? After some research, and a little innovation, I grilled up some pecans and turned them into Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter. The deep nutty tone is slightly sweet, and super perfect for just about everything you would want a nut butter for! Do you want to know the best part? It takes NO time at all to make!

Parmesan Crusted Mashed Potatoes

Parmesan Crusted Mashed Potatoes

With horseradish and butter

Posted on March 24, 2016

Parmesan Crusted Mashed Potatoes are creamy, crunchy and have a slightly spicy kick that can’t be beat! The parmesan cheese adds the perfect notes of cheesiness to the whole dish making these mashed potatoes shine.

I was surprised when serving this for dinner. When I scooped them out (the sides and bottom of the potatoes) the ones touching the sides of the dish, had crisp-i-fied too while they cooked! YUM. I love crispy mashed potatoes. Don’t you?

Lemon Butter Brussels Sprouts

A great green side

Posted on March 24, 2016
Lemon Butter Brussels Sprouts are the perfect addition to your family dinner. Zippy, tasty, tart, and spring-y - another great way to serve one of the most dreaded vegetables. Personally I think that if you prep your sprouts in any manner outlined on this blog, you will turn just about anyone into a sprout lover.

Irish Potato Farl

Irish Potato Farl

Also known as Potato Bread

Posted on March 17, 2016

Irish Potato Farl is a quick, flat bread made with leftover mashed potatoes. Sometimes just fried up and eaten with butter as a snack, it is also served with a full Irish breakfast called an Ulster Fry, along with baked beans, tomatoes, sausage, bacon, black and white pudding.

Funnily enough, I never tried to make this because I was afraid I would mess it up. I had an Irish great grandmother who would make it by hand for the family, then my wonderful grandmother started making it too, but it always seemed to be magical and secret. Until I finally learned that my grandmother at least was using the food processor. So I decided that this St. Patrick’s Day I should grill some up.

Citrus Glazed Pork Roast

Citrus Glazed Pork Roast

With Ginger Carrots

Posted on February 03, 2016
Feeling a little bored with plain old pork roasts, I jazzed things up by adding a little sunshine. Actually I used oranges and lemon pepper, but the effect was the same. This Citrus Glazed Pork Roast With Ginger Carrots tasted like eating sunshine. It completely brightened dinner time and added some much needed zing to mealtime.

Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe

Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe

Full of flavor, loads of heat

Posted on January 13, 2016
Every year for the past four years I make hot sauce for Christmas gifts. This year, I was actually grilling and making the sauce on Christmas Eve! Just like in the past, I used fresh ingredients to create a boisterous sauce loaded with flavor and heat that the recipients just love. This Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe is another on my list of Hot Sauce recipes. This one is spiced with garlic, curry, and five different peppers to give you that wallop. This sauce is as flavorful as it is hot, with a smoky sweetness hidden in there too.
