Yaki Onigiri

Yaki Onigiri

Grilled Rice Balls

Posted on April 14, 2016
Article Rating
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.

Grilled Chicken Chimichangas

Grilled Chicken Chimichangas

Because Yummy!

Posted on February 19, 2016
I was asked to cook chimichangas for a group of friends in celebration of a certain movie finally coming out. Naturally I had to find a way to incorporate the grill into this recipe, then document the entire process. So I wound up making Grilled Chicken Chimichangas and I can’t believe the amazing flavor we were able to pack into these little packets of amazingness.

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.

 Peanut Brittle

Peanut Brittle

With Smoked Peanuts & Bacon

Posted on January 27, 2016
I just found out that there is a National Peanut Brittle Day. Naturally I had to make a brittle recipe to celebrate, but it had to be done on the grill! So I made Peanut Brittle With Smoked Peanuts & Bacon to celebrate. As you know, adding bacon to anything makes it at least 20% cooler and taste at least 50% better. You just have to try this recipe!

Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe

Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe

Full of flavor, loads of heat

Posted on January 13, 2016
Every year for the past four years I make hot sauce for Christmas gifts. This year, I was actually grilling and making the sauce on Christmas Eve! Just like in the past, I used fresh ingredients to create a boisterous sauce loaded with flavor and heat that the recipients just love. This Five Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe is another on my list of Hot Sauce recipes. This one is spiced with garlic, curry, and five different peppers to give you that wallop. This sauce is as flavorful as it is hot, with a smoky sweetness hidden in there too.

Sourdough Bacon Stuffing

Sourdough Bacon Stuffing

Perfect for turkey dinners

Posted on November 20, 2015
Sourdough Bacon Stuffing is the only thing in this year's Thanksgiving dinner that contained gluten. I made it with fresh sourdough bread, and I had bacon out to make the Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes, so I used the leftovers in this recipe. 

 

I never stuff the bird when I use stuffing. There are a lot of factors that lead to that decision. Mostly I don't feel that I get a proper cook out of a roasted bird. There is risk of contamination of the stuffing from uncooked drippings, and most importantly, you don't get loads of crunchy bits, leading to fights among guests and family over the coveted crispy stuffing. Feel free to stuff your turkey, or chicken, or not. But whatever you do, enjoy the stuffing.

Bruschetta Pizza

Bruschetta Pizza

Two of the best foods become one

Posted on November 10, 2015
Bruschetta Pizza is a marriage of two supremely delicious foods. Bruschetta topped with roasted tomatoes, onions, garlic and basil, paired with the portable, gooey, melty heaven that is pizza; forming what was probably the best thing we’ve eaten in a week!I say this because we eat some pretty awesome stuff as Chez Sizzle. I mean, have you READ this blog?


Now this recipe wasn't all sunshine and roses. I am sure that you noticed that the pizza went from round and lovely in the first couple of photos,  to a squared-off-ish shape, in the other photos. Well, I kind of, maybe, accidentally, dumped the first pizza in the sink. I would love to tell you it was some incredible story involving ninja pirates, but no. It was my own klutziness that lead to that poor pizza's downfall. Our back up was very tasty indeed, though. The moral here is make this pizza, but don't accidentally toss it in the sink.
