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.

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.

Chicken And Waffles

Chicken And Waffles

Yep, you can grill it!

Posted on June 03, 2015
The month of June is National Soul Food Month. I've been wanting to do Chicken And Waffles for a while now, having never tried them, and National Soul Food Month was the perfect opportunity to do so. This meal is by no means, in any way, the least bit healthy. But it is delicious. For added grillitude, once the chicken was fried, I glazed it over direct heat with maple syrup, 'cause, you know, I had to make it more awesome somehow. I truly recommend making this outside if you can. Frying food inside can be a messy business.

Candied Pecan Banana Bread

Candied Pecan Banana Bread

A Most Versatile Quick Bread

Posted on May 27, 2015
I needed something to serve to guests on a Sunday evening, and I also needed a nutritious breakfast for the next day. So I decided to make some Candied Pecan Banana Bread. This quick bread recipe is not only moist and tasty as any banana bread should be, but it's actually full of things that are pretty good for you too. I used gluten free flour and you couldn't tell the difference, which is rare, and the candied nut topping gave you a satisfying crunch to top it all off. You'd never guess that this was made on the grill. Oh, did I mention that it's also versatile as heck too? You can throw it in a loaf pan for quick bread, muffin tins, mini loaves - which make fantastic little gifts, and even a cake pan if you wanted. You just have to remember to watch that baking time.

Sweet Garlic Dry Wings

Sweet Garlic Dry Wings

With Spicy Dip

Posted on April 21, 2015
I've done sticky, saucy, and even spicy wings, but I haven't done dry wings since the Lemon Pepper Wings a while back (they're really good by the way you should try them). These Sweet Garlic Dry Wings With Spicy Dip have a caramelized coating of garlic and brown sugar that is at once salty and sweet. Then you dunk it in a creamy dip that you think is going to be something like buffalo ranch, but you're blown away as a spicy mixture of sour cream, sriracha and sambal olek tackle your tongue.

Honey Dijon Glazed Ham

Honey Dijon Glazed Ham

Hamming it up

Posted on March 31, 2015
Honey Dijon Glazed Ham is perfect for a family dinner any time, but I made it for Easter. When you place it on the table for slicing, people will be in awe of the thick and shiny glaze, the aromatic steam and the succulent meat. I've got a small-ish family, and so we always have leftovers, even when making smaller meals. But fear not, because the Honey Dijon Glazed Ham is a superb addition to your lunch box too! Sandwiches, quiches, frittatas, stratta, breakfast, you name it!

Grilled Vegetable Wraps

Grilled Vegetable Wraps

Like a burrito only better

Posted on March 25, 2015
Having recently discovered the joys of Panera (a sandwich restaurant chain) I've been slightly inspired to make delicious grilled sandwiches. Thing is, the weather needs to be a little bit warmer. Just a little. For my vegetarian grilling class, I decided that Grilled Vegetable Wraps in the style of a panini were in order. Like the Grilled Vegetable Quesadillas, these wraps are stuffed to overflowing with delicious vegetables, different cheeses and super awesome Thai Chili Guacamole

Smoked Beef Brisket

Smoked Beef Brisket

Tender, smokey, delicious.

Posted on January 13, 2015
I've been meaning to... itching to - smoke a beef brisket ever since I discovered the smoker. But time, availability of meat, and life itself seemed to get in the way. Yes I know. I can get aligator and bison, but I can't find a blinkin' brisket?!  Well I got my hands on one, and after 10 hours of smoking, it was still a little rare, but oh so delicious.
