Spring is in the air and I can taste it… or was that the ribs?
Had a housewarming party for a friend over the weekend. I brought the ribs. Did up 3 racks in 3 flavours and fed 6 people, with a little help from a salad and some wings. It was quite the undertaking. But I tell you, when those ribs hit the grill and started to warm, that was the most glorious smell!
Yep. 3 racks of ribs, wings and beer for 6 people. I filled a 16 inch long plate with ribs. Everyone loved them. It was really funny. I was using my Freestyle Portable Grill, and didn’t actually have the room for all the ribs at once, so they came in shifts, each flavour was enjoyed better than the last! We had Charred Chipotle, Jamin’ Jerk, and Maple Bacon. Which is your favourite flavour of ribs?
Roasted On A Plank
Blood Orange Salmon Roasted On A Plank; visually it’s stunning. The delicate scent caresses your nose. The fish all but melts on your tongue. The sauce is sticky and tangy and sweet. The whole meal is incredibly light as well.View Details
Such Spicy Garlic
The Super Garlicky Thai Chicken was tangy and spicy with all the garlic you could ever want to consume. I served it with leftover potatoes and loads of green veggies, but over rice would be superb.View Details
With Candied Bacon
Basically I saw this and said the words Stout & Chocolate Cheesecake With Candied Bacon to my husband, the Baron of Baking. Stunned, he stopped everything and slowly turned to me. “Yes” was all he said.View Details
With Roasted Potatoes
Glazed carrots and roasted potatoes were both always on the menu when it came to any major family holiday meal. These dishes were prepared in the same way every time and passed down from mother to daughter for at least four generations. Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother’s mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.View Details
