Foil Roasted Brisket

Foil Roasted Brisket

Foil Roasted Brisket

Posted on May 21, 2015
I've mostly successfully done a smoked brisket and it was amazing. But I wanted to do a brisket that would make a Texan proud (or at least I hope they'd be proud). So instead of smoking, this time I opted to make a Foil Roasted Brisket in honor of National Brisket Day on May 28th.

Brisket Burgers

Brisket Burgers

With Broccoli and Brusseles Sprout Slaw

Posted on May 20, 2015
May 28th is National Hamburger Day. It's also National Brisket Day. Though I think we should just call it what it really is - National Holy-Cow-Beef-Is-Delicious Day. What do you think? Anyway, I had loads of leftover Foil Roasted Brisket and I just had to make Brisket Burgers With Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts Slaw with them. These burgers are stuffed with chunks of Havarti cheese and chopped brisket, and topped with even more brisket. I made this super crazy cole slaw, but used broccoli and Brussels Sprouts instead of traditional cabbage, then I put the slaw on top of everything. Trust me you won't even need ketchup!

Easy Goat Cheese Soufflé

Easy Goat Cheese Soufflé

That's Actually Easy

Posted on May 14, 2015
If you have never made one, this Easy Goat Cheese Soufflé is the perfect recipe for you to start with. Having never made a soufflé before, I was scared. The only reference and experience that I have ever had was the sitcoms where the woman pulls this beautiful soufflé from her oven and there's a loud noise causing it to collapse to the sound of a laugh track. So imagine my panic as the cat runs up and down the halls bouncing off the walls. I thought the same thing would happen to me. But, no. Everything was perfect and in no time we were eating something that resembled a mousse and perfect scrambled eggs but tasted like the most incredible mac and cheese you have ever eaten. Served with a Grilled Pear Salad, it was the height of decadence.

Lamb Sliders

Lamb Sliders

Easy and Fancy

I made these Lamb Sliders for Mother's Day Luncheon. I wanted to do something like an afternoon tea, but with a grill spin. I still wanted it a little feminine, but manly enough for my husband to eat without feeling like he should be in a powdered wig with his pinky out. I paired the Lamb Sliders with a simple salad of fresh spinach, arugula, pecans, cucumbers,  and cranberries, and added some Creamy Poppyseed Dressing which added a light and fresh dimension to the whole dish, pairing beautifully with the Sliders.  If you make these for Mother's Day, you will be your mom's hero. Though you can also make these easy little Lamb Sliders for the next big game, tailgate party, or event too, cause they're pretty dang good. Did I mention they're really easy too?

Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing

Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing

Perfect On Spinach Salad

Posted on May 06, 2015
I prepared Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing to go with my Lamb Sliders for Mother's Day luncheon and it paired perfectly. Lamb has an earthy flavor that needs to be lightened up with colorful and bright flavors meaning a fresh salad is perfect, and Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing sticks to that salad's bones when you use it.  It's thick, and has all the makings of a perfect dressing. The tang, the sweet and onions.

Grilled Chicken Enchiladas

Grilled Chicken Enchiladas

With Homemade Enchilada Sauce And Refried Beans

Posted on April 30, 2015
Cinco De Mayo is just around the corner. If you plan on celebrating, you have to serve food. These Grilled Chicken Enchiladas With Homemade Enchilada Sauce And Refried Beans are spectacular. They don't look like much, but flavor wise? Muy Bueno! So many different layers of texture and taste wrapped into one tortilla! It's like Cinco De Mayo on your tongue. Wait! It IS Cinco De Mayo! 

Now I opted to make everything (except the tortillas) fresh, but you certainly don't have to. And you can definitely taste the quality and difference. I also suggest that you double the recipe for the beans, they're pretty good, and like that Thai Chili Guacamole, which I highly recommend you make and have on hand for this meal, you will want to put that stuff in/on everything.

Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas

Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas

Posted on April 29, 2015
Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas. I guess that sounds really weird. I mean it does sound really weird. But they're super strangely yummy. My first foray into the land of tequila has resulted in success. This slushy drink, was inspired by a title that I read somewhere, though I may have read like two different recipes and conglomerated them into one. I do that a lot. Mother has a dusting mitt in her car, I totally thought it read disgusting mint. So you can see where this went. Where was I? Oh right. Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas. After slaving toiling joyously in front of a grill all day, something cold and fun is definitely in order. Not to mention it's totally the traditional drink of Cinco De Mayo - I think?

Margarita Curd Cheesecake

Margarita Curd Cheesecake

Perfectly Balanced Sweet And Tangy

Posted on April 29, 2015
Part of celebrating Cinco De Mayo is having a fantastic dessert to go with your amazing meal. I was going to do some sort of "Mexican" food like a quesadila or chimichanga filled with fruit and chocolate, but I had all these limes and tequila, and let's face it, you know my opinion on cheesecake. So I made Margarita Curd Cheesecake instead. First of all I was quite inspired by a dessert I taste tested at Costco a few weeks back and fully intended on recreating - a lemon curd, crumble topped cheesecake pie, and with Cinco De Mayo around the corner too, I had all the stuff to make a rockin' lime curd. Well I added tequila and things got a little out of hand, and into my mouth. You have to make this delicious, creamy dessert.

Lemon Rosemary Chicken

Lemon Rosemary Chicken

With Honey Basil Carrots

I made Easter Dinner last week so that you were good and prepared. But it also happened to be Passover on April the 3rd of 2015. As a food blogger, I feel that it's my duty to make food that represents all people and cultures, and pay respect to the food they eat and why it's eaten. I made this Lemon Rosemary Chicken With Honey Basil Roast Carrots for Passover, and hopefully I did this right. 

 

Now I was supposed to make a roasted chicken for this meal, however when I opened the packaging, I discovered that my beautiful, properly prepared, kosher, organic, chicken had gone rancid! Such as the case, we had to improvise. Lucky for us, there were some chicken breasts in the freezer. I can't guarantee that they were prepared in the proper fashion, but we made do with what we had. The rest of the meal I was careful. I did not mix dairy with meat at all, nor did I incorporate flour or leavening agents into the meal. So all in all, aside from the chicken and my camera battery dying, I believe this was a success.

Crispy Potato Galette

Crispy Potato Galette

Your Potatoes Will Never Be The Same

Posted on April 07, 2015
Crispy Potato Galette is like crunchy potato heaven. A delicious pie of crispy potatoes. It's like nothing I have ever had. And I think this may be the only way I prepare potatoes forevermore. Can you tell I enjoyed it? Are you sure? Yes, I thought that it was strange that this recipe is named like a razor, but the only thing this recipe is cutting is your preconceptions of what a potato side dish could be. I took it a little easy on the flavors, opting for salt and pepper and a little fresh rosemary basically, and what we got in return was pure awesome. Go ahead, try this for yourself! Right now! I mean it! I say that a lot don't I? What can I say? I love food.
