Sweet Apple Cake

Sweet Apple Cake

In One Bowl

Posted on October 27, 2014
Sweet Apple Cake is a tasty dessert that has the warmth of cinnamon and the sweet fall taste of apples. Serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (or both, no judgement). I also used the leftover Homemade Caramel Sauce from the Apple Tart recipe as an added bonus. With apples in season right now, use this opportunity to bake with your favorite kinds of apples.

Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

With Bacon And Sharp Cheddar

Posted on October 09, 2014

Believe it or not, I've never done a Green Bean Casserole. It's just a thing. I always bring something like homemade buns or dessert to any potluck event, unless I am doing the main dish, and someone else always shows up with something au gratin. So if you want a great tasting, creamy, cheesy, vegetable dish for your next potluck, or something amazing to serve at Thanksgiving, try this Green Bean Casserole. I mean it. Right now. Hop to it people!

Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

On The Grill

Posted on September 30, 2014

Talking food one day, someone mentioned to me that they had a craving for Butter Chicken, an Indian dish that I had never tried. Instantly curious, I searched the web for a simple version of the recipe. None of them mentioned grilling, but all wanted it to be baked in a covered dish. I have to be different so instantly I was thinking of ways to make this delicious recipe on the grill. I came up with this and it was very delicious.

I was worried about finding all of the spices and the cheesecloth. No need to fret at all. If you go to a larger grocery store, one that has a fresh market and deli, you should be able to find the cheesecloth with the tea-towels. As for the spices, I found the ones I needed almost all side by side! As long as you have access to a store with a bulk section or a bulk dry goods store, you should be fine. The curry paste was in the International/Asian section. If you can’t find paste, you can substitute curry powder, and make it into a paste with water.

Beef Shortribs

Beef Shortribs

Korean BBQ Style

Posted on September 24, 2014

I've never done short ribs before. Considering that, I decided to buy some short ribs at the supermarket and make Galbi, Korean BBQ Short Ribs. I marinated the ribs overnight and grilled them up with great success. They were demolished in no time.

Salted Maple Pecan Bars

Salted Maple Pecan Bars

Smoked On The Grill

Posted on September 24, 2014

As a going away-have to celebrate-birthday-need dessert for this event thing, I found a recipe for Salted Maple Pecan Bars. I just had to put a grill-spin on it. Okay, so there were five and a half of us (one guy had one piece and disappeared somewhere) and we demolished the 9 x 13-inch tray that I made. These were so good that I had to make them again two days later. So good that when asked for seconds from someone, I lied and said that they were all gone. Yeah. THAT kind of good.

Buffalo Chicken Queso Dip

Buffalo Chicken Queso Dip

The Ultimate Tailgate Dip

Posted on September 15, 2014

With tailgate season upon us, not to mention the plethora of championship games to watch, there is no shortage of reasons to have food that requires dip. That's where Buffalo Chicken Queso Dip comes in. This dip is super thick, bursting at the seams with spicy-tangy buffalo sauce and cheesy goodness. This recipe makes loads; we ran out of chips before we ran out of dip.

Buttery Grilled Snapper

Buttery Grilled Snapper

With Grilled Veggie Salad

Posted on September 09, 2014

I needed a whitefish for a lunch recipe at work. Yep. I grill, at work, on the job, feeding the people in the office. That is what I do, when I'm not typing. I have the best job. 

Okay I digress. Needed fish. Needed something different. So, pacing in front of the seafood counter in the local supermarket, I asked for a reasonably priced fish that I could get a lot of right then and there. The kind person who helped me suggested the Rockfish. Yep. Still new to the seafood world I goggled at her. What's a rockfish? It doesn't sound that great. Maybe a little hard. (ba dum) You may know it as Black Snapper. And this is how you grill it up quickly for a fantastic meal.

Grilled Swordfish Kebabs

Grilled Swordfish Kebabs

Fresh ingredients make the difference here

Posted on September 09, 2014

I needed something to make for dinner one night. I was perusing the seafood isle at my local grocer while waiting in line for the deli attendant when I saw a gigantic swordfish steak sitting there pretty as you please. The skin was still on it, smooth and shiny, a dark green-ish-black-y-blue, and the colour was bright. It looked kinda good. The price was right too. So I snagged that lonely steak and capered home with my find.

Peanut Butter Barbecue Sauce

Peanut Butter Barbecue Sauce

With Grilled Chicken Legs

Posted on September 08, 2014

Happy National Peanut Day everyone. Well actually it's September 13th... BUT I had to celebrate and share with you! Instead of doing something Thai with a peanut sauce, or a delightful dessert, I opted to do something slightly unexpected. I made a peanut butter laced barbecue sauce. Was it ever delicious! Creamy. Slightly spicy, and definitely a little sweet. You gotta try this on your next meal with chicken.

Grilled Peach Ice Cream

Grilled Peach Ice Cream

Grilled Peaches In Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream

Posted on July 31, 2014

It's peach season, it's summer, it's hot. Why not get the best out of the seasonal produce and beat the heat with Grilled Peach Ice Cream! No I didn't grill the ice cream, I grilled the peaches and put them into the ice cream. This dessert is kid friendly and super easy to make. It was creamy and smoky and sweet. 

I guess I should explain the asterisks on the time it takes to make the Grilled Peach Ice Cream. It really doesn't take long, but the freezing time is where it gets you. I don't exactly have a place to put that. But basically you have to wait, impossibly hard because it smells and tastes so good, for the ice cream to set for at least 2 hours in the freezer.
