Pecan Butter Cups

Pecan Butter Cups

Homemade Chocolate Candy Is Easy

Posted on April 14, 2016

After making Homemade Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter to celebrate National Pecan Day on April 14th, I had loads left over! 2 cups worth! Sure, it’s delicious on pretty much everything, but I wanted to do something super special. My friend tried a spoonful of the fresh nut butter and said “You know what would be awesome? This… in peanut butter cups!”. He was right. I made Pecan Butter Cups the very next day. They are pure chocolate and pecan awesomeness.

With only four ingredients, this recipe is supremely simple to make. I made everything up as I went along and I wouldn’t change a thing. I will be making these again very soon. Perfect to keep on hand for a snack, or dessert. I suppose you could share them with others if you’re truly generous.

To celebrate the pecan, a most wonderful nut that has it’s own day on the calendar, I made some Pork Chops Stuffed with Apples and Pecans. I love pairing pork with sweet flavors, and pairing apples and pecans together makes perfect sense too. Add Honey Hickory Seasoning rub on the pork with a honey Dijon cream sauce, and you have a match made in grilling heaven.

Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter

Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter

With Fire Roasted Pecans

Posted on April 07, 2016
I love pecans, so when I heard that they have their very own day - April 14th by the way; I just had to make some extra recipes to celebrate. I generally have peanut butter in the house for making Peanut Butter Banana Bread and Peanut Butter BBQ Sauce, but it got me thinking...What if you made peanut butter out of pecans instead of peanuts?? After some research, and a little innovation, I grilled up some pecans and turned them into Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter. The deep nutty tone is slightly sweet, and super perfect for just about everything you would want a nut butter for! Do you want to know the best part? It takes NO time at all to make!

Smokehouse Maple Salmon

Smokehouse Maple Salmon

On The Grill

Posted on April 07, 2016
Using the McCormick spices, especially the La Grille series, makes grilling and meal creation super easy. This particular recipe for Smokehouse Maple Salmon is so fast and easy, you will hardly believe that you made something so deliciously gourmet tasting! We wanted an easy and fast dinner, and after indulging quite a bit recently, I wanted something a little lighter. The sweet sauce caramelized on the salmon; which we served on some sticky rice with a light cucumber salad, the perfect light meal.

Mint Chocolate Cake

Mint Chocolate Cake

With Dark Chocolate & Thin Mints

Posted on March 31, 2016
This Mint Chocolate Cake was supposed to be for a birthday, but was nearly two weeks late due to a lack of kitchen (long and funny story). The wait was worth it! Imagine biting into a dense and moist cake that is perfectly chocolaty, discovering bits of minty cookie and then luscious hints of dark chocolate. That’s what this cake is like. I didn’t think that it would be big enough for my husband and I to enjoy for more than a few days. (You know we’re intense chocoholics) This cake? It lasted us over a week, and that’s with sharing over half of it with friends! You will love this chocolate cake; especially if you’re a fan of mint and chocolate together.

Rotisserie Leg of Lamb

Rotisserie Leg of Lamb

with Stuffing

Posted on March 24, 2016
Rotisserie Leg of Lamb with Stuffing is a roast that is out of the ordinary in many ways. I bought the cut of meat knowing that the bone was removed, but didn’t realize that the whole thing had been more or less butterflied (duh). Having that available space gave me an idea for a very delectable meal. Usually I would crust the outside of the lamb with savory herbs, but this time I wanted to fill the inside! So I created a quasi-stuffing with some panko and herbs, then tied everything up, and seasoned the outside very simply. Using the rotisserie the outside of the Leg of Lamb caramelized, and in the end, we ended up with a beautiful looking, delicious dinner.

Parmesan Crusted Mashed Potatoes

Parmesan Crusted Mashed Potatoes

With horseradish and butter

Posted on March 24, 2016

Parmesan Crusted Mashed Potatoes are creamy, crunchy and have a slightly spicy kick that can’t be beat! The parmesan cheese adds the perfect notes of cheesiness to the whole dish making these mashed potatoes shine.

I was surprised when serving this for dinner. When I scooped them out (the sides and bottom of the potatoes) the ones touching the sides of the dish, had crisp-i-fied too while they cooked! YUM. I love crispy mashed potatoes. Don’t you?

Lemon Butter Brussels Sprouts are the perfect addition to your family dinner. Zippy, tasty, tart, and spring-y - another great way to serve one of the most dreaded vegetables.
