Pulled Pork Pizza

Pulled Pork Pizza

With Jalapeño Cheddar

Posted on May 27, 2015
I love pizza. I love a good home smoked pulled pork. I decided that the two of these needed to be put together again so that we could eat something awesomely delicious. This Pulled Pork Pizza with Jalapeño Cheddar was sweet and spicy. It rocked our tastebuds, and we ended up eating all of it instead of sharing. In other words, you may want to consider doubling this recipe, because even the leftovers are ridiculously good.

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.

Foil Roasted Brisket

Foil Roasted Brisket

Foil Roasted Brisket

Posted on May 21, 2015
I've mostly successfully done a smoked brisket and it was amazing. But I wanted to do a brisket that would make a Texan proud (or at least I hope they'd be proud). So instead of smoking, this time I opted to make a Foil Roasted Brisket in honor of National Brisket Day on May 28th.

Brisket Burgers

Brisket Burgers

With Broccoli and Brusseles Sprout Slaw

Posted on May 20, 2015
May 28th is National Hamburger Day. It's also National Brisket Day. Though I think we should just call it what it really is - National Holy-Cow-Beef-Is-Delicious Day. What do you think? Anyway, I had loads of leftover Foil Roasted Brisket and I just had to make Brisket Burgers With Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts Slaw with them. These burgers are stuffed with chunks of Havarti cheese and chopped brisket, and topped with even more brisket. I made this super crazy cole slaw, but used broccoli and Brussels Sprouts instead of traditional cabbage, then I put the slaw on top of everything. Trust me you won't even need ketchup!

Homemade Mac 'N' Cheese

Homemade Mac 'N' Cheese

With Goat Cheese

Posted on May 20, 2015
Homemade Mac 'N' Cheese With Goat Cheese, well if you remember last week, we celebrated Cheese Soufflé Day with Easy Goat Cheese Soufflés, and the cheesy delicious base that made it all come together was so good I wanted to turn it into my cheese sauce for some good 'ol Mac 'N' Cheese. Let me tell you, you have been making macaroni and cheese wrong for a long time and it's time to change our ways. Adding a crunchy cheese flavored cracker top and baking it until it's super crisp doesn't hurt either.

Easy Goat Cheese Soufflé

Easy Goat Cheese Soufflé

That's Actually Easy

Posted on May 14, 2015
If you have never made one, this Easy Goat Cheese Soufflé is the perfect recipe for you to start with. Having never made a soufflé before, I was scared. The only reference and experience that I have ever had was the sitcoms where the woman pulls this beautiful soufflé from her oven and there's a loud noise causing it to collapse to the sound of a laugh track. So imagine my panic as the cat runs up and down the halls bouncing off the walls. I thought the same thing would happen to me. But, no. Everything was perfect and in no time we were eating something that resembled a mousse and perfect scrambled eggs but tasted like the most incredible mac and cheese you have ever eaten. Served with a Grilled Pear Salad, it was the height of decadence.

Grilled Pear Salad

Grilled Pear Salad

With Feta

Posted on May 14, 2015
Grilled Pear Salad With Feta is a surprising salad. The smoky sweet, warm pears are matched well with the feta cheese for a rich, lavish flavor without spending the big bucks. We made this to go with the Easy Goats Cheese Soufflé because I didn't want to have something too heavy with it. All in all, this was a very satisfying and light meal that didn't leave us wanting more.

Mediterranean Lamb Pita

Mediterranean Lamb Pita

With Pistachio Pesto Wet Rub And Greek Yogurt Sauce

Posted on May 14, 2015
A mouthful in more ways than one, these Mediterranean Lamb Pita With Pistachio Pesto Wet Rub And Greek Yogurt Sauce were absolutely delightful. Even the picky ones enjoyed this meal. I was dubious about the pistachio pesto to begin with, it tasted like it needed something, was missing something, but when we slathered the lamb bites with it, the pairing turned into heavenly morsels of meat. The runny greek yogurt sauce was flavored with garlic, dill and a little lemon pepper for a hit of tangy, garlicky goodness. All of this was piled onto a steamed pita (they're more flexible) and you had some sort of Mediterranean lamb taco thing happening.

Lamb Sliders

Lamb Sliders

Easy and Fancy

I made these Lamb Sliders for Mother's Day Luncheon. I wanted to do something like an afternoon tea, but with a grill spin. I still wanted it a little feminine, but manly enough for my husband to eat without feeling like he should be in a powdered wig with his pinky out. I paired the Lamb Sliders with a simple salad of fresh spinach, arugula, pecans, cucumbers,  and cranberries, and added some Creamy Poppyseed Dressing which added a light and fresh dimension to the whole dish, pairing beautifully with the Sliders.  If you make these for Mother's Day, you will be your mom's hero. Though you can also make these easy little Lamb Sliders for the next big game, tailgate party, or event too, cause they're pretty dang good. Did I mention they're really easy too?

Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing

Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing

Perfect On Spinach Salad

Posted on May 06, 2015
I prepared Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing to go with my Lamb Sliders for Mother's Day luncheon and it paired perfectly. Lamb has an earthy flavor that needs to be lightened up with colorful and bright flavors meaning a fresh salad is perfect, and Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing sticks to that salad's bones when you use it.  It's thick, and has all the makings of a perfect dressing. The tang, the sweet and onions.
