Apple Cider Spareribs

Apple Cider Spareribs

With Sticky Cider BBQ Sauce

Posted on July 02, 2015
Apple Cider Spareribs are perfect for the 4th of July, which also happens to be National Sparerib Day. These babies are sticky, and boozy, they're shiny, and snackable too. I really enjoyed eating these ribs. They're pre cut for you so, there's none of that knife play that you usually have with a big 'ol rack of back ribs (not that I'm complaining about ribs at all...ever). This recipe came about when I realized that the smoker was out of order for the weekend. We went to the LCBO (liquor store) for a bottle of Kraken. I saw the cider and was hit in the back of the head with the shovel of inspiration. Why not braise the ribs with some of the cider, and make a sauce out of the rest? Don't forget to leave a little to drink with the ribs too.

Rustic Strawberry Pie

Rustic Strawberry Pie

On The Pizza Stone

Posted on July 02, 2015
It's strawberry season and I'm over the whole Strawberry Shortcake thing, so I decided to make a Rustic Strawberry Pie on my Pizza Stone, and boy was it ever delicious! In fact these awesome strawberry recipes over the past week have been so amazing, even my picky husband is enjoying them, and he doesn't like strawberries - only because of the seeds - so that's saying something. The pastry for this recipe is super easy and I will be making it again for other pies. Just remember that it needs to chill for an hour before use.

Strawberry Quesadillas

Strawberry Quesadillas

With Cheesecake Ice Cream

Posted on June 30, 2015
It's strawberry season. I guess that's my favorite holiday. YES it should be a holiday. And there should be holiday dedicated to bacon, and one for cheesecake too. But I digress. These Strawberry Quesadillas With Cheesecake Ice Cream are insane. And by insane we have blow your mind, melt your brain, oh my gosh that's delicious, and what the heck was she thinking all wrapped up in a delicious tortilla, then tossed on the grill with fresh chocolate STUFF (somewhere between a sauce, and a ganache and a chocolate shell), and all of the strawberries. Oh yeah, then we topped it with HOMEMADE cheesecake ice cream.

Three Cheese Grilled Cheese

Three Cheese Grilled Cheese

With Roasted Red Peppers, Bacon & Onion

Posted on June 24, 2015
Three Cheese Grilled Cheese With Roasted Red Peppers, Bacon & Onion happened by accident. Yep. The cheese just landed like that and layered into a perfect sandwich with the roasted peppers. Okay, not really. But I was standing in the kitchen wondering what the heck I was going to grill, considering I forgot to pull out some meat before going to the gym that morning. My eyes alighted on a sourdough loaf lounging there on the counter, beckoning me to just slice it and eat it right then and there. And I thought to myself that would make some pretty darn good grilled cheese. So I opened the refrigerator, and noticed that, not only did I have some cheddar, the best cheese ever, but I had goat cheese and Monterey Jack too. Rummaging further, looking for the butter, I saw peppers and an onion, lazily sitting there, being all good for nothing. Actually the pepper was pointing at the bacon, hoping not to be noticed itself I guess. So bacon joined the growing ingredients list too. Finally I had it. Three Cheese Grilled Cheese With Roasted Red Peppers, Bacon & Onion.

Cheesy Baked Onion Rings

Cheesy Baked Onion Rings

Rings Of Awesome More Like It

Posted on June 23, 2015
For those times when you want onion rings but you can't wait for those awesome Smoke Rings, bake yourself some Cheesy Baked Onion Rings. I love the sharp onion-y flavor and opted to go with a white onion, but it's all about preference, sweet vidalia onions are good too. But really it's all about that crunchy baked outside. Using crushed crackers instead of bread crumbs or panko really make these things pop-able. And don't forget to finish it all off with your favorite dipping sauce. You could carry the theme and do a blue cheese dip, but I loved the sweet and savory of the Shōchū sauce.

Grilled Beef And Broccoli

Grilled Beef And Broccoli

Good Chinese On The Grill

Posted on June 23, 2015
Grilled Beef and Broccoli came about when I had a craving for Chinese food the other day. My favorite dish is Beef And Broccoli, but I wanted to put a grilled spin on the whole deal. So I did. The broccoli came out slightly spicier than I envisioned, but otherwise it was a very delicious meal. Served with rice and topped with sesame seeds and green onion, it looked like a fancy, five star restaurant version of Beef and Broccoli.

Bison Burgers Stuffed

Bison Burgers Stuffed

With Goat Cheese And Mushrooms

Posted on June 18, 2015
I love cooking for special occasions, my family loves it too. So last family get together I made Bison Burgers Stuffed With Goat Cheese And Mushrooms. These rich burgers combined the leanest meat with the most decadent flavors of fried mushrooms and creamy, unripened goat cheese. Grandmother is insisting that I open a restaurant and serve all of the delicious things that I share with you on the blog. No. I like where I am at. I like making things and keeping a regular schedule of 9 to 5-ish. I love making delicious grilled food and learning about all things barbecue with everyone. Where was I going? Oh well.

Bison Burgers! They're so good and decadent and rich. The Napoleon Burger Press is super helpful in making these, all burgers are identically formed with the perfect divot for the cheese and mushrooms to nestle in. The burger press also takes forming time down quite a bit, and you're not handling the meat as much either.

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

With Shōchū BBQ Sauce

Posted on June 17, 2015
Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings With Shōchū BBQ Sauce, I guess I could have shortened it to just Smoke Rings, but then you wouldn't know what I was talking about right? These are smoky, sweet, and the barbecue sauce adds that little extra kick.

It was quite the comedy of errors when I went to make these. They were supposed to go on the Goat Cheese And Mushroom Stuffed Bison Burgers, but that didn't happen. I got a call as we were leaving to go to my Mother's, she had forgotten to tell the Grandparents what time the party was at. So, that was great because it gave us the extra time to smoke the onions. So we arrived and immediately went about trying to set up a dry place for my TravelQ™.  There was loads of space on the deck, but you couldn't see it for the sheets of rain falling. 

With the TravelQ™ set up on a wheelbarrow and warming, I prepped the smoker tube and placed the rings. Not ten minutes later, the Grandparents arrived early, and hungry, for our little party. Off came the rings and on went the burgers instead. And the tube had just started smoking too. Sigh.

Sticky Rum Pudding

Sticky Rum Pudding

With Cream

Posted on June 16, 2015
Sticky Rum Pudding With Cream was inspired by a visit last weekend with the Husband's Granny. We were making fun of my lower than average tolerance of alcohol, and her amazing rum cake that I managed to get drunk off of, all while enjoying a restaurant's version of Sticky Toffee Pudding. I had this brilliant idea to make the cake in little bundt tins, not the full sized one, and have individual, beautiful, little puddings. Their middles would be filled to overflowing with the Sticky Toffee sauce, and you would top it all with cream. So imagine, if you will, a perfect marriage of a rum and date cake with a boozy toffee sauce, served hot, with ice cold cream on top. Let's just say we were all right happy at the end of the evening.

How To Cook A Whole Lobster

How To Cook A Whole Lobster

The easy way to cook your first live lobster

Posted on June 10, 2015
With June being Soul Food Month, World Oceans Day June 8th and National Lobster Day on June 15th, I ended up with Lobster on the brain. Having never done a whole live lobster before, I needed to know How To Cook A Whole Lobster. I started where most people do, by shouting "To the Googles!!!" and running to the computer. After youTube-ing a few videos, it seemed easy enough. Boiling water, toss it in. Now we needed to find one. There's generally a live tank at most good grocers, but you want to make sure that you talk to the person at the counter. If they have no idea, go somewhere else. We hit the jackpot on our first try and got Pinchy. It was a little too early for a lobster dinner when we got her home, so we just let her run around until we were ready to cook. Introduced her to the cats, made her feel at home. Okay not really. I was hoping for a little Captain Kirk vs. Gorn action with the cats and Pinchy, but they were indifferent, so she went into her little box and chilled out in the fridge until dinner.
