Vegetable Tempura On The Grill

Vegetable Tempura On The Grill

With Fresh Dipping Sauce

Posted on August 05, 2015
After making tempura battered onion rings for the Asian Tenderloin recipe, I needed to find out what else I could tempura-ize. Vegetable Tempura On The Grill was easier than you would think and super fun to serve with dinner. We ate this with Salmon Teriyaki for a complete meal and it was an amazing Asian themed dinner off the grill.

Garlic Fingers

Dough Sticks of Garlicky Goodness

Posted on July 24, 2015
Garlic Fingers, you know those cheesy, garlicky sticks of dough that you get for extra money with your pizza? Well now you can make them at home! It's super easy and makes pizza night even more authentic. Dip them in extra pizza sauce if you have it, but salsa or bruschetta mix will do just as well. Now that I have a craving... excuse me. I need to make me some more Garlic Fingers.

Cheesy Baked Onion Rings

Cheesy Baked Onion Rings

Rings Of Awesome More Like It

Posted on June 23, 2015
For those times when you want onion rings but you can't wait for those awesome Smoke Rings, bake yourself some Cheesy Baked Onion Rings. I love the sharp onion-y flavor and opted to go with a white onion, but it's all about preference, sweet vidalia onions are good too. But really it's all about that crunchy baked outside. Using crushed crackers instead of bread crumbs or panko really make these things pop-able. And don't forget to finish it all off with your favorite dipping sauce. You could carry the theme and do a blue cheese dip, but I loved the sweet and savory of the Shōchū sauce.

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

With Shōchū BBQ Sauce

Posted on June 17, 2015
Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings With Shōchū BBQ Sauce, I guess I could have shortened it to just Smoke Rings, but then you wouldn't know what I was talking about right? These are smoky, sweet, and the barbecue sauce adds that little extra kick.

It was quite the comedy of errors when I went to make these. They were supposed to go on the Goat Cheese And Mushroom Stuffed Bison Burgers, but that didn't happen. I got a call as we were leaving to go to my Mother's, she had forgotten to tell the Grandparents what time the party was at. So, that was great because it gave us the extra time to smoke the onions. So we arrived and immediately went about trying to set up a dry place for my TravelQ™.  There was loads of space on the deck, but you couldn't see it for the sheets of rain falling. 

With the TravelQ™ set up on a wheelbarrow and warming, I prepped the smoker tube and placed the rings. Not ten minutes later, the Grandparents arrived early, and hungry, for our little party. Off came the rings and on went the burgers instead. And the tube had just started smoking too. Sigh.

Thai Chili Guacamole

Thai Chili Guacamole

And Creamy Garlic Queso

Posted on February 24, 2015
Thai Chili Guacamole And Creamy Garlic Queso are essential to a good plate of nachos. Let me tell you, sure my first Guacamole recipe was pretty darn good, but this one? This one is THE one. You won't just have people devouring it, you will have them battling with nacho chips being used as swords. And the Queso? I thought the Buffalo Chicken Queso was good, but this... well let's just say that a dish for 6 was being licked clean by 3 and a half people within 45 minutes.

Planked Chilli Nachos

Planked Chilli Nachos

With Sausage And Sour Cream

Posted on February 24, 2015
I'm sick of the deep freeze. We're still here living in negative 25 to 45° weather, waiting patiently for the sun to come out and melt the snow. It's gotten to the point where it's a warm day if it's only -10°C (14°F)! So I needed a siesta from the wretched cold. I decided to have a little fiesta instead. We made Planked Chilli Nachos With Sausage And Sour Cream, some crunchy tortilla chips topped with mountains of cheese, fresh peppers, grilled spicy sausage, loads of my Ghost Pepper Chilli, and topped off with a crown of sour cream. I also served it with some fresh Thai Chili Guacamole, Super Creamy Garlic Queso Dip, annnd a fantastic grilled blood orange drink that I called Pink Happiness

With tailgate season upon us, not to mention the plethora of championship games to watch, there is no shortage of reasons to have food that requires dip. That's where Buffalo Chicken Queso Dip comes in. This dip is super thick, bursting at the seams with spicy-tangy buffalo sauce and cheesy goodness. This recipe makes loads; we ran out of chips before we ran out of dip.

Ghost Pepper Turkey Meatballs

Ghost Pepper Turkey Meatballs

Nice Meat Spice

Posted on November 29, 2013
We used these for cheese fondue, the milk in the cheese fondue definitely helped in keeping the heat from the ghost peppers in control. But you could definitely use these in a cream or rosé sauce with pasta and sautéed sweet peppers. Or an appetizer with a creamy yogurt and cucumber dip! There were over 2 dozen meatballs and they disappeared. Make sure you make a lot.

Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno Poppers

Stuffed With Sausage

Posted on October 28, 2013
I actually made these for a Halloween party over the weekend. It was spooky how quickly they disappeared. I didn’t have a grilling plank, so I sliced them in half and grill-baked them. These Sausage Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers also went well with home made salsa. But however you eat them, you will love them. Leave a comment and tell us how your Jalapeño Poppers turned out. What was the occasion that you served them for?
