Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers

Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers

Sweet and Crunchy

Posted on January 13, 2016
Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers, there's a story behind this one. I have been a very lucky person. When I was younger, my father took me to Europe. We stayed in Paris for a couple of days before going to Euro Disney and then London via the Chunnel. While in Paris, we ate at a Planet Hollywood. I was horrified to see the chicken fingers, my go to meal was breaded with Captain Crunch, my all time favorite cereal. Back then I was picky. I have learned much since then. Ever since then, I have had that thought pop into my head periodically. Could I? Should I? Well I finally did it. I finally had enough bravery to give it a try. This recipe, these Chicken Fingers... Are. Just. Amazing.

Grill Roasted Salmon

Grill Roasted Salmon

With Fresh Herbs & Feta

Posted on January 06, 2016
My husband ate a lot of fish growing up. I did not. At all. So, it's been slow going getting into the seafood thing, but we are getting there. As you can see, Salmon is my favorite and this Grill Roasted Salmon With Fresh Herbs & Feta was absolutely amazing. Fragrant fresh herbs and creamy zippy feta top a meaty salmon fillet. When served with some Crispy Roast Potatoes (just add some fresh dill and a squeeze of lemon) it's perfect.

Pulled Pork Tacos

Pulled Pork Tacos

You're having soft tacos later

Posted on December 15, 2015
Pulled Pork Tacos happened when I realized that we didn't have any beef for Taco Tuesday. OH the humanity! Whatever shall we do?! Yep! That's right! Pull that pulled pork out of the freezer and load it up with taco seasoning, fried peppers and onions. Then toss that into soft taco shells and load them with all of the fixin's for a fast weeknight dinner that will have them asking for Taco Tuesday on Wednesday and Thursday too!

Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

A strange twist on a home-style classic

Posted on December 15, 2015
Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie is an "I have some pork and some sweet potatoes, now what?" sort of recipe. It was chilly that day, so I wanted something cozy to eat, and easy to make. That's when I thought, why not make a shepherd's pie! This recipe is overflowing with savory gravy. Instead of the typical peas and corn, I went with sweet green pepper. Then I added LOADS of pork topped it with a creamy and crispy sweet potato crust. What's not to love about this recipe?

Peanut Butter Bacon Balls

Peanut Butter Bacon Balls

Sound naughty, taste nice

Posted on December 15, 2015
This recipe began as a sad failure. Though not in the way you would expect. I tried to make the Vanilla Bean Shortbread using gluten free flour. The cookies ... well I don't know what they did. I rolled them, and cut them, and they just, kind of, melted. They didn't exactly get crispy. They definitely did not hold their shape. I peeled them off the cookie sheet after baking and placed them onto a plate where they proceeded to melt into some sort of blob of shortbread. I really didn't want to waste such delicious amounts of butter and sugar, but what was I going to do with a literal BLOB of cookie. Then I thought, why not add peanut butter, chocolate and bacon? Peanut Butter Bacon Balls were born. Think cake pops without sticks and with cookie instead of cake.

Sweet Chili Shrimp

Sweet Chili Shrimp

Sweet and spicy seafood

Posted on December 02, 2015
Sweet Chili Shrimp is a great appetizer or meal, depending how you serve them. These little guys surprise the palate with their initial sweetness, then kick it in to high gear, finishing with a little fire. Ooooh, I am on fire describing these shrimpies aren't I? When I help with photo and video shoots at work, I love ensuring the food is good enough to eat afterwards. We wanted something colorful and tasty looking for a new accessory that we're working on, and I created quite the ticket with these shrimp. With the sauce and their cooked to pink perfection, they looked great on film, and when we were done everyone got to enjoy a taste.

Brined Turkey Grilled Over Charcoal

Brined Turkey Grilled Over Charcoal

Succulent Thanksgiving Turkey

Posted on November 20, 2015
Brined Turkey Grilled Over Charcoal is an easy way to have the best Thanksgiving ever with very little work. Brining is easy and a great way to add flavor, and keep the juiciness of your meat. Case in point, we accidentally overcooked our very big bird (14+ lbs). I was feeling rather nonchalant about the whole grilling process this time., I was going to let it go for an hour or two, and then put the meat thermometers in. It should need at least 4 hours, right? Well we put the thermometers in, one in the breast and one in the thigh, and it was DONE! We're aiming for 165°F; the breast was 195°F and the thigh was 180°F! The poor thing barely got any color, but we pulled it off and foiled it, then wrapped it in a tea towel to keep the heat. When I carved it a few hours - Yes it was that early - later, it was the most succulent bird ever. Juices were running everywhere! Dinner was  awesome.

Savory Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Savory Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Super easy, better than canned

Posted on November 20, 2015
You can't have roasted turkey without Savory Homemade Cranberry Sauce. But don't just pop open a can and let that gelatinous stuff ooze out! Seriously, a bag of fresh cranberries is far less expensive, and with less than seven ingredients you will have a little something that your guests will swoon over. Best part? It's gluten free 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.
