Peachy Porkebabs

Peachy Porkebabs

On A Bed Of Rice

Posted on August 25, 2015
Peaces are spectacular, sweet and juicy. But they' not just for desserts. These Peachy Porkebabs prove that. I bought a basket of peaches at the farmers market and knew that I couldn't eat them all, no matter how hard I tried. So I decided that they needed to be cooked in to things. But not just desserts, however sweet my sweet tooth is, I don't think that baking a bunch of peach pies and cakes, and other sweet treats was going to cut it, especially on a grilling blog. I needed to go savory, but how? Pork, is good with apples. Apples are round and sweet, they're a fruit, so are peaches. YES! That's it. I will make a peach barbecue sauce to go with my pork.

Grilled Bacon Lettuce And Tomato Sandwiches

Grilled Bacon Lettuce And Tomato Sandwiches

Introducing the GLT

Posted on August 18, 2015
Bacon is a treat for some. For others, myself and the husband included, it's weekend required eating. When asked what she would like to eat after a successfull Girl's Night In, my firend really wasn't up for eggs. What can I say, it was a big Bison Steak dinner! But, the thought of bacon was too much to turn down so instead I decided on BLT's for breakfast. So here I am prepping the ingredients, mulling over the acronym "BLT", I suddenly thought G.L.T!! Lightbulb! Grilled Bacon Lettuce And Tomato Sandwiches! YES! They were exquisite, by the way.

Roasted Sweet Potato

Roasted Sweet Potato

Stuffed With Saucy Pork

Posted on July 15, 2015
I get left to my own devices on most Friday nights. It's my "me time" so I don't really mind. The only problem is that I never know what to make for dinner. Well, this particular Friday wasn't much different. But that was when I noticed some leftover Apple Cider SpareRibs in the fridge. That's how I came up with Roasted Sweet Potato Stuffed With Saucy Pork. I fired up the grill to make a baked sweet potato, then when the potato was nearly done, tossed the meat from those ribs into my grill wok with some Cattle BoyZ Chipotle Maple Bacon BBQ Sauce, and shortly thereafter I had a delicious and pretty healthy meal.

Honey Garlic Sausage Stuffed Pork Chops

Honey Garlic Sausage Stuffed Pork Chops

With Cattle BoyZ Chipotle Maple Bacon Sauce

Posted on July 14, 2015
Honey Garlic Sausage Stuffed Pork Chops With Cattle BoyZ Chipotle Maple Bacon Sauce, not only is it a very delicious mouthfull, it's also hard to say three times fast. (I totally dare you) 

So I asked myself, what would make these boring old pork chops taste even better. Three things came to mind. Sweet flavors like maple and apple, garlic, and more pork! So I decided to go with all three, 'cause how could that possibly go wrong? I can tell you now that it really didn't. And the best part about this recipe? Unless you have a gaggle of pork chops, (or would it be a herd?), you are going to have leftover sausage to make meatballs!

Maple Garlic Sausage Meatballs

Maple Garlic Sausage Meatballs

Fast, easy, and awesome

Posted on July 14, 2015
After making the Sausage Stuffed Pork Chops, I had extra ground pork left, so I decided to make some Maple Garlic Sausage Meatballs. The husband loves taking meatballs with BBQ sauce to work for a fast and easy lunch, so making some homemade ones seemed like the next logical step. These meatballs have of all of the flavor, a bit of sweet, garlic and finished off with a swift kick in the tongue with spice. Try these to jazz up your next meatball sub, or skewer them with your favorite veggies for kebab night. Any way you eat them, you will have good times.

Double Thick Apple Smoked Pork Chops

Double Thick Apple Smoked Pork Chops

With Asparagus And Crispy Potatoes

Posted on July 07, 2015
Double Thick Apple Smoked Pork Chops With Asparagus And Crispy Potatoes are a complicated sounding meal, that looks simple once plated. If you serve them with a little dollop of apple sauce to finish it off, then you're really sailing. The sweet smokiness of the pork is offset by the simple seasoning and searing. Paired with the simple veg, you have a meal made in heaven.

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.
