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.

Autumn Baked Brie

Autumn Baked Brie

With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries

Posted on October 15, 2015
Autumn Baked Brie With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries is a cheesy, gooey, delight. Feel's kind of high brow, and can be served as an appetizer with wine, or as a dessert, with wine. I guess you don't have to serve it with wine, but yeah. The wheel was a buffalo brie from Prince Edward County. It wasn't strong like brie cheese tends to be, but mild and salty, pairing beautifully with the sweetness of the apples and brown sugar, and the tartness of the cranberries.

Smoked Chicken Wings

Smoked Chicken Wings

With Bourbon Hot Sauce

Posted on September 22, 2015
I like to make it count when I use the smoker. I mean you're there for the long haul, anywhere from 4 to 16 hours and sometimes longer. And if you're going to commit to that amount of time, you may as well get a lot out of it. So when we made Homemade Smoky Southwest Bacon, I also made sure to have some other things that could be smoked at the same time. I had some wings in the freezer, and wasn't sure what I wanted to do for dinner. But Smoked Chicken Wings sounded mighty good when you're sitting there smelling that meat smoking. That's how Smoked Chicken Wings With Bourbon Hot Sauce came about. Well the smoked wings part anyway. 

 

The sauce was sheer mishap. I didn't want to cheap out and get some store bought stuff, so I thought I would just throw together a sauce. Only, it didn't work out very well at all. My balances were way off in the beginning. But after adding a little of this and that, and a healthy dose of bourbon, I ended up with a lip tingling-ly good sauce.

Pulled Pork Quesadillas

Pulled Pork Quesadillas

With Arugula And Gouda

Posted on September 08, 2015
Pulled Pork Quesadillas With Arugula And Gouda are moderately healthy, and easy to make. Use them for a fast dinner, or as a great lunch for school. Whenever you serve them, you will be in flavor town. Pulled pork quesadillas are another fun and simple way to use that pulled pork you smoked, without just slapping it on a bun. Adding arugula to the mix gives you some dark greens, and adds an extra peppery layer to the flavor, and the gouda a mild and easily melted cheese that gives you a little hit of creaminess with the smokey pork.

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

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.
