Gourmet Steak Pizza

Gourmet Steak Pizza

on Cheese, Herb & Garlic Mini Focaccia

Posted on June 15, 2016
If you’re creative enough just about anything can become pizza. Gourmet Steak Pizza on Cheese, Herb & Garlic Mini Focaccia proves that. I used very fresh ingredients for this recipe, and you can taste the difference. The tomatoes served as the sauce instead of using a traditional tomato sauce. I did this because I didn’t want to top the cheesy goodness of the fresh herbed focaccia with anything that would mask its delicious flavor. Instead, I enhanced the delicate herb and cheese flavor by adding succulent steak slices and red onion.

Steam Whistle Pilsner Marinade

Steam Whistle Pilsner Marinade

Perfect for beef

Posted on June 12, 2016

A pilsner, like Steam Whistle, is the perfect addition to any marinade. The acidity in the liquids of your marinade will soften the connective tissues in the meat you are marinating, making the meal not only more flavorful, but even more tender. Using a lighter beer, like Steam Whistle, helps keep things light as well. Your meal won't feel weighted down by the marinade you use. Try it on a beef roast, or lamb chops tonight.

Grilled French Toast

Grilled French Toast

with Cinnamon Sugar Walnuts

Posted on June 08, 2016
Grilled French Toast with Cinnamon Sugar Walnuts is the perfect weekend breakfast. Using a sturdy loaf of Italian Style Bread, like COBS Bread Pane di Casa, is ideal. The thin, yet crispy crust holding the fluffiest bread imaginable is superb for grilling directly on your cooking grids. The resulting slightly smoky, sweet, bread-pudding-like texture is what French toast is all about. I added some Cinnamon Sugar Walnuts and then yelled, “Bring on the Maple Syrup”!

BLT with Egg

BLT with Egg

on a COBS Bread Sourdough Roll

Posted on June 08, 2016
The BLT is made better with an egg and perfected when put on a COBS Bread Sourdough Roll. I know what you’re thinking. You are thinking that they’re just rolls, you eat them with butter at supper. I’m sorry; I can’t do that. It would be sacrilicious. I mean, yeah, they’re good as dinner rolls to accompany some sort of grilled delight, but why stop there? Why not worship a little roll of the best bread flavor – sourdough is a flavor right? – by making these buns of heavenly deliciousness into a breakfast that would top all of the top ten sandwich lists.

On the Napoleon Pizza Stone

Posted on April 26, 2016

Tasty Taco Pizza is so delicious. Like, how did I never think of doing this before delicious. Try, I am making this again tomorrow night for dinner, delicious. Need I go on?

So I was toodling around the internet and was reading an article somewhere when one of those side bar video ads starts blaring. It’s a cooking segment and they’re talking about Garth Brooks and taco pizza. I think they said that he invented it. Anyway, it was just a light bulb moment. I saw what the end product looked like and knew I just had to make something that amazing sounding right away. As an added bonus, it’s Cinco De Mayo soon, and you can celebrate with some amazingly Tasty Taco Pizza too!

Posted on April 26, 2016

Marinated steak served on a sizzling bed of fresh veggies, cradled in cheese, and wrapped in a delicious blanket of flour tortilla goodness. What I am describing is a staple in our household. What I am describing is   Steak Fajitas On The Napoleon Cast Iron Skillet, with La Grille Roasted Garlic & Peppers Rub.

This celebration of Mexican-like flavors is the perfect and simplest dinner for Cinco De Mayo celebrations. Add some cervezas and you have a match equal to queso and jalapeños.

Stone Baked, Layered Enchilada

Stone Baked, Layered Enchilada

On Napoleon’s Pizza Stone

Posted on April 26, 2016
Making Mexican style takeout food to celebrate Cinco De Mayo is fun and flavorful. Utilizing spices in unique ways makes for some interesting meals. Instead of making Enchiladas, I wanted something that would be a little more interesting when cut into. This Stone Baked, Layered Enchilada turned out to be crunchy, tangy, and spicy. Seeing the layers and tasting the flavors when we ate it was about as fun as making it. Think of this Layered Enchilada recipe like a savory Mexican birthday cake. How many layers high can you go?

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.

Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter

Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter

With Fire Roasted Pecans

Posted on April 07, 2016
I love pecans, so when I heard that they have their very own day - April 14th by the way; I just had to make some extra recipes to celebrate. I generally have peanut butter in the house for making Peanut Butter Banana Bread and Peanut Butter BBQ Sauce, but it got me thinking...What if you made peanut butter out of pecans instead of peanuts?? After some research, and a little innovation, I grilled up some pecans and turned them into Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter. The deep nutty tone is slightly sweet, and super perfect for just about everything you would want a nut butter for! Do you want to know the best part? It takes NO time at all to make!

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.
