How To Make Hot Italian Sausage

How To Make Hot Italian Sausage

Making it yourself is easy and fun!

Posted on September 01, 2015
This recipe is all about How To Make Hot Italian Sausage. Actually wait. I should back up. I have been waiting for nearly a year to finally do this. Make my own sausage. I initially set out to make something a little more mild when it came to a sausage, so the flavor that we ended up with was a lot spicier than intended, but it's ALL flavor, not just heat for heat's sake. I started with research. I wanted to make something actually easy, and needed to source out good ingredients. Then I needed to make sure that I had the spices that would create the flavors we were looking for. And finally we had to just do it. 

I think the biggest thing that holds people up is the casing, and stuffing. Casings are either synthetic or animal based. They don't smell great, and they're really gross. But they're an essential part of the process. I recommend going to your local butcher (The Butcher Shop Barrie is ours) and talking to them about casings, which ones they use and if they have any tips and tricks. You will get a lot of bang for your buck that way too. We got enough to make quadruple of what this recipe makes! Now for the pork. You can use a Boston butt, and add pork fat, or ask about pork trimmings. It's a bag full of random stuff, literally. But it will also give you a lot to work with, which is good, and possibly less expensive than buying a whole pork shoulder for this project.

Pulled Pork Rubbed With Garam Masala And Clove

Pulled Pork Rubbed With Garam Masala And Clove

Rubbed With Garam Masala And Clove

Posted on August 31, 2015
This day started like any other. With pork. Actually it did. I had bacon for breakfast, but I digress. Our mission this weekend was to make homemade sausages. Our local butcher - The Butcher Shop - suggested that we would need more than just the pork trimmings that we were purchasing for said sausage. So I grabbed a pork butt (actually the shoulder) and thought nothing of it. But as it turned out, we didn't need the extra pork for sausages. So what was I to do? Why Pulled Pork naturally! Pulled Pork Rubbed With Garam Masala And Clove is something that just materialized. I didn't want to do the same old Pulled Pork, what good would that be to you, my fine readers? So I whipped out my spices and looked for some interesting combinations that I could try.

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

With Tahini Sauce

Posted on August 25, 2015
The success of the Chicken Shawarma recipe made me realize how delicious Shawarma can be. I wanted to make it again, but I also wanted to make a meal that was just a little different too. Lebanese Beef Shawarma With Tahini Sauce fit the bill exactly, using some traditional spice combinations you can take beef to a whole new level. The only thing we didn't have was the fries to go in the pita. But man was this  ever some good food. 

Actually, having just moved into our new home, my husband and I have had some issues with appliances and unfinished stuff (new build), so having nowhere to put our dishes for the most part left us in kind of a pickle. A pickle that is solved by making food that is portable. I know, all my pretty dishes seem to be making it onto the site okay, and I guess I could use paper plates and what not, but there's no fun in that! I want to make the food work for me! So we did.

Chicken Flautas

Chicken Flautas

With Avocado Cream

Posted on August 18, 2015
Chicken Flautas With Avocado Cream are a Mexican dish that came out of nowhere. I hadn't heard of them until a coworker asked me if I had had one before. Nope, but they sound absolutely delicious! I must make some! So I did. Basically it's a fried chicken stuffed soft taco-burrito-thingy. They're sometimes called/confused with toquitos, which are very similar, but Flautas are larger and longer. So here is my take on the Chicken Flauta. (By the way they're really delicious.)

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Posted on August 18, 2015
I wanted to make something special for my friend who came to visit our house. So we went to the farmer's market downtown for some special food. We found bison at one booth, and all of the fresh produce at the others. I even got a basket of peaches that are totally blowing my mind right now. For dinner we made Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes. Everything came from the farmer's market. It was glorious.

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

With Sweet Potato Fries

Posted on August 11, 2015
An elegant meal that is perfect for your next special occasion, Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon With Sweet Potato Fries was tender and delicious. The first official meal that I grilled at our new house, I thought it was about time to celebrate. It also happens to be Filet Mignon Day on August 13th - hey my lucky number! Sure you can just grill up a filet and be done with it, but I wanted to do something a little bit special. When you go to the butcher, ask for the cut you like the look of best, thickness and color is important. Then season up those beauties on all sides before wrapping with bacon and a secret ingredient.

How To Grill Corn On The Cob

How To Grill Corn On The Cob

In The Husk

Posted on August 10, 2015
So I've never done this, and my kitchen wasn't quite ready when we moved in. So we didn't exactly have a stove to even boil a pot of water. I needed another way to cook the side dish for dinner, my Bacon Wrapped Fillet Mignon, How To Grill Corn On The Cob was the first thing I searched online. I mean sure I could do the foil wrapped corn (Recipe Club August 2014), but I didn't want to cover the taste of the sweetest sweet corn, which would pair beautifully with the beef and bacon. So this is what you do:

Salmon Teriyaki

On The Grill

Posted on August 05, 2015
I need to eat more seafood. That's a fact. Salmon is still my favorite fish. It's meaty and hearty, fills you up. Being in a mood for Japanese one night, I decided to make Salmon Teriyaki On The Grill. It turned out fantastic. Paired with Vegetable Tempura, we had a meal made in grilling heaven.

Vegetable Tempura On The Grill

Vegetable Tempura On The Grill

With Fresh Dipping Sauce

Posted on August 05, 2015
After making tempura battered onion rings for the Asian Tenderloin recipe, I needed to find out what else I could tempura-ize. Vegetable Tempura On The Grill was easier than you would think and super fun to serve with dinner. We ate this with Salmon Teriyaki for a complete meal and it was an amazing Asian themed dinner off the grill.

Chicken Tikkababs With Naan

Chicken Tikkababs With Naan

Serve it family style for more fun

Posted on July 24, 2015
At a loss of what to do with chicken, and wanting to avoid getting into a rut, I grabbed a grilling cookbook (Company's Coming, Great Grilling) and scanned the recipes for something chicken. That's when Chicken Tikka popped out at me. I glanced at the ingredients and ran to the kitchen. What happened next was mouthwatering magic.
