Horseradish Potato Salad

Horseradish Potato Salad

Perfect potato salad with a kick

Posted on May 10, 2016
Horseradish Potato Salad is the perfect creamy potato salad with one heck of a kick. Craving potato salad one evening, I found that I didn't have all of the proper ingredients for traditional potato salad. I substituted cabbage for celery, but was running out of mayonnaise. Since I had some horseradish mayonnaise kicking about, I thought “why not?”. Turns out that it was the right decision indeed. You have to be careful when adding horseradish to things. It will clear your sinuses. If you love hot stuff, kick things up a notch with extra horseradish. Pair this side dish with sweet and sticky ribs or wings, and you will have the quintessential barbecue meal. Perfect for #BarbecueMonth.

Yaki Onigiri

Yaki Onigiri

Grilled Rice Balls

Posted on April 14, 2016

Yaki Onigiri is a very popular snack or takeout food made from rice formed into triangle or cylinder shapes, served wrapped with nori (seaweed) paper. Yaki means grilled or cooked To celebrate Rice Ball day on April 19th, I needed to try my hand at such a popular dish. They turned out fantastic, and I quickly got a handle on forming the sticky rice into a shape that resembled the pictures of Onigiri that I have seen. Traditionally Onigiri is stuffed with pickles or other sour things like pickled Umeboshi (Japanese salt plums), salted salmon, kombu (pickled seaweed), pickled tuna flakes, or salted Pollock. Feel free to substitute any of these for the chicken if you want to go super traditional.

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.

Super Perogies

Super Perogies

With Cheese & Chives

Posted on March 10, 2016
I was at a complete loss as to what I should make for supper one night. I was hungry, alone, and it was after 8 pm. I hadn’t pulled anything out to defrost, and driving to a takeout joint seemed like so much work. Then; a shining light from the freezer. Angels sang and inspiration patted me on the back. Super Perogies With Cheese & Chives was born.

Homemade Caramel Corn

Homemade Caramel Corn

on the Grill

Posted on February 19, 2016
I have been itching to make Homemade Caramel Corn on the Grill for some time, but I’ve always been a little bit scared to try it. After the success of the peanut brittle recipe, I had a little extra confidence and thought why not? So I threw caution to the wind, popcorn in the popper, and butter in the pot. I combined it all to make a sweet, salty, slightly smoky, and totally delicious snack. Needless to say myself and three others have already demolished half of this recipe meant to serve at least twelve.

Fresh pork makes a difference

Posted on December 22, 2015
This year instead of a traditional Christmas Dinner, we're going to have Christmas Brunch with the family. We plan on putting on a big spread with Mini Quiche, Fresh Biscuits, fruit and cheese trays, Bacon, Cranberry, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, and of course these Homemade Sausage Rolls. We are definitely thinking outside the hotdog bun this year. These Sausage Rolls are made from freshly ground pork meat that we seasoned ourselves and you will love the results if you do the same.

Fully Loaded Guacamole

Fully Loaded Guacamole

This recipe will get your guac on!

Posted on December 02, 2015
I've been trying to find ways to sneak avocados into more food. They're super good for you, but there is just something about the green mushy thing that I can't figure out. They're also like bananas, unripe forever, then you have a day or so of perfection, then suddenly they're gross! Just got to get into the avocado groove I guess. Anyway, I had such success with the awesome, creamy, and delightful Thai Chilli Guacamole, that when my co-worker and fellow foodie was telling about this incredible guac he made, I just had to try it. Since then I have made Fully Loaded Guacamole about 4 more times.
