Lebanese Beef Shawarma

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

With Tahini Sauce

Posted on August 25, 2015
The success of the Chicken Shawarma recipe made me realize how delicious Shawarma can be. I wanted to make it again, but I also wanted to make a meal that was just a little different too. Lebanese Beef Shawarma With Tahini Sauce fit the bill exactly, using some traditional spice combinations you can take beef to a whole new level. The only thing we didn't have was the fries to go in the pita. But man was this  ever some good food. 

Actually, having just moved into our new home, my husband and I have had some issues with appliances and unfinished stuff (new build), so having nowhere to put our dishes for the most part left us in kind of a pickle. A pickle that is solved by making food that is portable. I know, all my pretty dishes seem to be making it onto the site okay, and I guess I could use paper plates and what not, but there's no fun in that! I want to make the food work for me! So we did.

Chicken Flautas

Chicken Flautas

With Avocado Cream

Posted on August 18, 2015
Chicken Flautas With Avocado Cream are a Mexican dish that came out of nowhere. I hadn't heard of them until a coworker asked me if I had had one before. Nope, but they sound absolutely delicious! I must make some! So I did. Basically it's a fried chicken stuffed soft taco-burrito-thingy. They're sometimes called/confused with toquitos, which are very similar, but Flautas are larger and longer. So here is my take on the Chicken Flauta. (By the way they're really delicious.)

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

With Sweet Potato Fries

Posted on August 11, 2015
An elegant meal that is perfect for your next special occasion, Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon With Sweet Potato Fries was tender and delicious. The first official meal that I grilled at our new house, I thought it was about time to celebrate. It also happens to be Filet Mignon Day on August 13th - hey my lucky number! Sure you can just grill up a filet and be done with it, but I wanted to do something a little bit special. When you go to the butcher, ask for the cut you like the look of best, thickness and color is important. Then season up those beauties on all sides before wrapping with bacon and a secret ingredient.

How To Grill Corn On The Cob

How To Grill Corn On The Cob

In The Husk

Posted on August 10, 2015
So I've never done this, and my kitchen wasn't quite ready when we moved in. So we didn't exactly have a stove to even boil a pot of water. I needed another way to cook the side dish for dinner, my Bacon Wrapped Fillet Mignon, How To Grill Corn On The Cob was the first thing I searched online. I mean sure I could do the foil wrapped corn (Recipe Club August 2014), but I didn't want to cover the taste of the sweetest sweet corn, which would pair beautifully with the beef and bacon. So this is what you do:

Asian Beef Tenderloin

Asian Beef Tenderloin

With Tempura Onions And Gyoza Sauce

Posted on August 05, 2015
This is the recipe for my first ever video recipe. Asian Beef Tenderloin With Tempura Onions And Gyoza Sauce, it's elegant, yet easy. And boy does it taste good too. The beef nearly melts in your mouth, and the tartness from the sauce makes it sing. The Tempura Onions are a nice crunchy offset to the tender beef. All in all a very successful meal. You need to try it yourself. Video equipment and crew not required.

Vegetable Tempura On The Grill

Vegetable Tempura On The Grill

With Fresh Dipping Sauce

Posted on August 05, 2015
After making tempura battered onion rings for the Asian Tenderloin recipe, I needed to find out what else I could tempura-ize. Vegetable Tempura On The Grill was easier than you would think and super fun to serve with dinner. We ate this with Salmon Teriyaki for a complete meal and it was an amazing Asian themed dinner off the grill.

Red Velvet Cheesecake

Red Velvet Cheesecake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on July 28, 2015
I don't need a reason to have cheesecake. I could have cheesecake every day, no matter what. That's probably why there are more than ten recipes for cheesecake, or cheesecake related desserts on this blog. Red Velvet Cheesecake With Cream Cheese Icing seemed like the next logical step in cheesecake recipe making. I had two reasons to make this. One, it's National Cheesecake Day, and you HAVE to have cheesecake on National Cheesecake Day, and two, I wanted to make something special for a friend who really helped us out. In both I believe that I've succeeded because dang! This cheesecake was amazing.

Serve it family style for more fun

Posted on July 24, 2015
At a loss of what to do with chicken, and wanting to avoid getting into a rut, I grabbed a grilling cookbook (Company's Coming, Great Grilling) and scanned the recipes for something chicken. That's when Chicken Tikka popped out at me. I glanced at the ingredients and ran to the kitchen. What happened next was mouthwatering magic.

Whisky Apple Chicken

Whisky Apple Chicken

In The Napoleon Cast Iron Skillet

Posted on July 21, 2015
On the 27th of ever July, it is National Scotch Day. To honor that I made Whisky Apple Chicken with some 15 year aged Glenlivet. Now before you freak out about the wastage of decent scotch, hear me out. It was a sample bottle and held just enough to make the recipe, and it was also not my Glenfiddich 18 or 30. I was dubious about the flavor combinations, and unsure of what to serve with this, but went with sweet potato purée which was complimented by the sweetness from the apples very nicely.

National Ice Cream Day is pretty awesome and fell perfectly on some of the hottest days of the year. And what better way to cool your jets with this easy, homemade, and minty-fresh, Mint Ice Cream With Cookies And Chocolate Swirl. Also, as it's my Husband's favorite flavor, I couldn't resist surprising him with it. The results of this experiment in ice-cream-y goodness went swimmingly and I will definitely be making this again.
