Toasty Tortellini

A delicious, dipable snack

Posted on February 10, 2016
Toasty Tortellini is a super easy and very tasty snack or appetizer that everyone will love. Dip it in your favorite marinara sauce (I recommend the Roasted Garlic Tomato Sauce) or your favorite cheese sauce (Try this Goat Cheese Sauce) or just munch away for a super duper savory snack.

 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.

Spaghetti À La Vodka

Spaghetti À La Vodka

A delicious vodka cream sauce

Posted on November 10, 2015
Many years ago, I went on a girl's weekend and had the pleasure of trying some pasta in a vodka cream sauce. I haven't seen it on a menu in years, until recently I spotted an article about it somewhere. I suddenly had a craving. Conveniently, we had just gotten back from our trip to Prince Edward County, and had procured a bottle of 66 Distillery Rye Vodka, which went perfectly into my Spaghetti À La Vodka. This pasta dish is filling, rich, creamy, and a little tomato-y too. The chicken adds a smoky flavor to the whole dish, and when you taste it, you will fall in love.

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.

Allergen Free Muffins

Allergen Free Muffins

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free

Posted on October 01, 2015
Allergen Free Muffins. I'd love to say that these came from a desire to make something special for a friend who has a special diet, but no. I had no fruit to go in my yogurt, and had no ingredients to make my Oatmeal Date Muffins, or any normal muffins at all for that matter. Seriously, I needed to figure out what to make because I had no eggs either! I couldn't even make a quick omelette or anything! But I needed breakfast so I made due with what I had on hand. Did you know that you can substitute ground flax for eggs in a recipe? In the end, these moist and filling muffins wound up being delicious and shareable!

Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

On The Grill

Posted on September 22, 2015
When you slice your newly homemade bacon, you invariably get bits, chunks, slices that aren't pretty, and leavings. You can't just toss these little scraps. That would be offensive. You would be arrested by the Bacon Police for crimes against the bacon! That's where these Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins come in. I used some of the bacon ends in these delicious breakfast muffins that do more than smell delicious. They're fairly healthy, you can make them gluten free and egg free easily. There is little sugar in these too. Until you add the chocolate chips. But if you're REALLY being health conscious with these bacon-full muffins, craisins are a great addition instead.
