Goat Cheese Pasta

Goat Cheese Pasta

With Bacon And Grilled Asparagus

Posted on July 07, 2015
Left to my own devices one evening, I had nothing planned for dinner,  and nothing but scraps in the fridge. It sounds like I never have any groceries, I swear I do! Anyway, that is where this all started. Goat Cheese Pasta With Bacon And Grilled Asparagus is a conglomeration of my craving that evening, and what I happened to have left over after making Stuffed Bison Burgers and Goat Cheese Vanilla Ice Cream. I love grilled asparagus, and I love bacon, so adding the two of them to a creamy pasta sauce was a no brainer. I hope you enjoy this easy and pretty quick gourmet meal as much as I did.

Apple Cider Spareribs

Apple Cider Spareribs

With Sticky Cider BBQ Sauce

Posted on July 02, 2015
Apple Cider Spareribs are perfect for the 4th of July, which also happens to be National Sparerib Day. These babies are sticky, and boozy, they're shiny, and snackable too. I really enjoyed eating these ribs. They're pre cut for you so, there's none of that knife play that you usually have with a big 'ol rack of back ribs (not that I'm complaining about ribs at all...ever). This recipe came about when I realized that the smoker was out of order for the weekend. We went to the LCBO (liquor store) for a bottle of Kraken. I saw the cider and was hit in the back of the head with the shovel of inspiration. Why not braise the ribs with some of the cider, and make a sauce out of the rest? Don't forget to leave a little to drink with the ribs too.

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.

Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Glorious circles of bacon-chocolate goodness

Posted on June 03, 2015
Last week we posted a recipe for Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies on our Facebook page. It was a re-share of a share - well you know how it goes, but I want to thank the Recipe Girl for the original recipe which you will find here!! Basically I couldn't not try making these. I did not make them Gluten Free and they were enough to entice someone who shouldn't be eating gluten to eat at least five cookies! She told me later that it was well beyond worth it. The husband's co-workers? Totally beyond jealous. Seriously. Grown men, carpenters, openly weeping as he eats the cookies in front of them, smirking.

Candied Pork Back Ribs

Candied Pork Back Ribs

Sticky And Rib-Tickling Tasty

Posted on May 28, 2015
We had a real craving for ribs recently and I just had to act on it. So we made these Candied Pork Back Ribs to fill that void. Usually we make Maple Bacon Ribs, but I wanted to go for something a little different this time round, something special for the first ribs of the season. So I seasoned, smoked, melted and basted my way into these amazing ribs.

Pulled Pork Pizza

Pulled Pork Pizza

With Jalapeño Cheddar

Posted on May 27, 2015
I love pizza. I love a good home smoked pulled pork. I decided that the two of these needed to be put together again so that we could eat something awesomely delicious. This Pulled Pork Pizza with Jalapeño Cheddar was sweet and spicy. It rocked our tastebuds, and we ended up eating all of it instead of sharing. In other words, you may want to consider doubling this recipe, because even the leftovers are ridiculously good.

Eggs Benedict With Asparagus Wrapped In Prosciutto

Eggs Benedict With Asparagus Wrapped In Prosciutto

And Sourdough Toast

Posted on April 14, 2015
April 16th is National Eggs Benedict Day, so you need to eat something eggsy and smothered in hollandaise sauce. May I suggest Eggs Benedict With Asparagus Wrapped In Prosciutto And Sourdough Toast? Perhaps I should demand you make this. Or any of these recipes too. This decadent and filling food had a fantastic balance of salty and creamy, the juicy asparagus had just the tiniest crunch to it and the sourdough toast just makes everything magical.

Honey Dijon Glazed Ham

Honey Dijon Glazed Ham

Hamming it up

Posted on March 31, 2015
Honey Dijon Glazed Ham is perfect for a family dinner any time, but I made it for Easter. When you place it on the table for slicing, people will be in awe of the thick and shiny glaze, the aromatic steam and the succulent meat. I've got a small-ish family, and so we always have leftovers, even when making smaller meals. But fear not, because the Honey Dijon Glazed Ham is a superb addition to your lunch box too! Sandwiches, quiches, frittatas, stratta, breakfast, you name it!

Korean Style Grilled Pork Shoulder Steak

Korean Style Grilled Pork Shoulder Steak

Fantastic Korean Fusion

Posted on February 17, 2015
Korean Style Grilled Pork Shoulder Steak, marinated in garlic, mirin, and chilies, then seared and slow roasted, served with rice and stir fried veggies, this meal is Korean Fusion at its best. The outside of the pork is spicy, but the inside is tender and porky. I guess, it should be porky, because if it were like chicken-y we would be worried. What I mean is that the outside is caramelized with the garlic and rice wine marinade, while inside the pork is perfectly cooked to absolute tenderness. I should stop typing now. Just make it and try it and enjoy this dish would you?

Rosemary Grilled Pork Roast

Rosemary Grilled Pork Roast

With Roasted Heirloom Carrots

Posted on February 09, 2015
Whether it's for a nice family dinner, or something a little more romantic, Rosemary Grilled Pork Roast With Roasted Heirloom Carrots is definitely a meal that will please the mother-in-law and the romantic partner. The best part about this recipe is that you don't have to be a crazy good gourmet chef to make it happen. You just need some bacon fat, garlic, and a roast.  ...well I guess you need a grill too.
