It's always good to try something different. That is what I did with this recipe. First, I purchased a cut of steak that I don't often get. The flank steak is usually mis-cooked and often tough and not so great. But like many things, just needs some tender loving care. Flank is porous and benefits from the marinade treatment. The other thing I tried was some different photography techniques. I'm not sure I like how the dark and moody thing came out. But the photos make the food look tasty. I guess that's what matters.
Today, September the 18th, is National Cheeseburger Day! How do you plan on celebrating?
I made some supremely cheesy beef burgers to celebrate, and I really recommend that you whip some of these up for tonight's dinner too! Last year we had the pleasure of Sultana's Bacon Cheeseburgers, but this year, we have something even better! What could be better you ask? These Super Cheesy Swiss Stuffed Cheeseburgers With Cheddar And Jalapeño Havarti. I know that the recipe time says that it takes 105 minutes to make, but it's all in the prep, and then there's 30 minutes of chilling time too. But I can assure you that these burgers are worth it.
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.
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.
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.
My husband's granny used to pack him salmon sandwiches for lunch. Like tuna salad sandwiches, only with canned salmon. I know, not a great way to start a blog post, especially if you're like me and don't really find the sound of that appealing at all. But these Salmon Sandwiches are made with fresh salmon, seasoned lightly and grilled gently for a lovely smokey flavor. Then they're flaked with some light mayonnaise and placed onto bread that has been lovingly toasted. Doesn't that sound more appealing?
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.
