Chicken Fingers Poutine

Chicken Fingers Poutine

The definition of sinfully scrumtious

Posted on October 15, 2015
Chicken Fingers Poutine is the most amazing, terrible for you, cheesy, gooey, holy-cow food on the planet. I am hungry and craving it, just typing about it right now! I think I could eat this every night for a week straight and still not get sick of it. SO, if you want to treat yourselves, need a creative game day recipe, or just want something different for an appetizer, making Chicken Fingers Poutine is definitely the way to go. 

I honestly don't know what I was thinking when the idea popped into my head. Oh wait. Yes I do. Okay so I went to a photography class in Prince Edward County. It's like cheese and wine capital, and of coarse I bought cheese curds. I have poutine on the blog already, so I really wanted something special for these curds. That's when I got a craving for Chicken Fingers. Then I was like, what if I put the cheese curds on the fresh Chicken Fingers and topped it all with fresh chicken gravy?! Chicken Fingers Poutine!

Easy Apple Blooms

Easy Apple Blooms

Fresh apple pastries off the grill

Posted on October 15, 2015
This recipe started with me seeing some crazy 30 second video on Facebook. Easy Apple Blooms looked - just that - easy! But I couldn't just do what I saw online. No! I needed to take it up a notch. Make these things the most amazing pastry thingadooeys that you have ever put in your pie-hole! And I did. Cinnamon, lemon juice, and cream cheese icing take these from pretty apple pies to some sort of danish delight. Try these with your leftover pastry next time you bake.

Grilled Beef Wellington

Grilled Beef Wellington

Beef Was Never So Good

Posted on October 07, 2015
I've been wanting to try making Grilled Beef Wellingtons for a very long time. Like since I started this blog. But time, bravery, money, there were a lot of factors that prevented me from just doing it. This Thanksgiving, however, I wanted to do something  different, special, spectacular. This is my first time hosting Thanksgiving for the family, they deserve it after helping my husband and I into the new house. So, emboldened by my incredible kitchen, and with uber support from everyone, I did it. 

Wellingtons are expensive. Beef is getting more and more pricy, and tenderloin is through the roof. But if you're going to do this, you want to spend the money on quality. It is worth it. This meal shut the mouths of 8 people. They were so in awe of the flavors, I can't believe how speechless they were. Among these guests was my younger sister. If she is telling you about something, there is no stopping her! This did. 

You want to impress? Make this. It's not nearly as scary as you would think. I did not make up the recipe, but instead gained inspiration from Chef Gordon Ramsay's infamous recipe. You know the one. I took a few liberties when it came to the preparation, but followed his guidelines. He's actually a great teacher.

Roasted Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Mashed Potatoes

With Paprika & Aged Cheddar

Posted on October 07, 2015
Roasted Mashed Potatoes With Paprika & Aged Cheddar are super simple but pack a huge punch. I know that my Irish Grandfather is weeping as he reads this because "potatoes are good on their own and don't need any help!" but let me tell you. Paprika, smoke, aged cheddar = help! You can make these ahead, which is what I did, and then finish them off on the grill while everything else is keeping warm. Also, having extras to share, reheat, and re-eat is so awesome.

Spicy Roasted Sweet Squash

Spicy Roasted Sweet Squash

Spicy Roasted Sweet Squash is a fun and easy way to get your veggies in. The perfect autumn side dish that goes great with turkey or beef, or... well it goes with everything. This is my first time eating the Kabocha or Sweet Mama Squash. It's texture is like a potato slightly waxy, soft, and after getting kissed by smoke and roasting on the barbecue, it's sooooo sweet. Not like sugar sweet, but a lightly flavored sweet. 

 

If you're inexperienced with hard veggies, this one is HARD. Physically. You will need a good meat cleaver kind of knife, something that will get through a turnip or pumpkin. Thank goodness my husband was helping. He actually had a blast breaking through the gourd. And he used my avocado tool to scoop out the innards in a single swipe! Once sliced it's an easy season, and bake.

Simple Roasted Heirloom Carrots

Simple Roasted Heirloom Carrots

Bright, easy, and delicious

Posted on October 06, 2015
Simple Roasted Heirloom Carrots are just that. Super simple. I needed a side dish to go with our Thanksgiving meal, something fast, simple, set and forget while I worked on the important main course. These carrots look like a showstopper, but you don't have to tell them how easy it was to make. They're buttery, and flavorful, and the bright colors of the purple and yellow carrots stand out in the field of regular orange ones so that people take note of the dish. You will run out. They're that good.

Spiced Carrot Cake

Spiced Carrot Cake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on October 06, 2015
You can't finish your perfect Thanksgiving meal without dessert, and what better way to usher in autumn than with Spiced Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Icing! Imagine a dense cake, scenting the air with the fragrance of fall, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg. It's moist but not crumbly. It's perfectly topped with thick layers of sweet cream cheese icing. This is a cake to remember and could you believe that I made it on the grill?

 

Baking time varies widely from cake pan to cake pan, so I recommend checking at the 20 to 25 minute mark, and every 5 to 7 minutes afterwards. My cake pan was 6x6x3-inches and it took nearly 45 minutes for the cake to be completely done.

Maple Peppercorn Bacon

Maple Peppercorn Bacon

The cure for the common bacon

Posted on October 01, 2015
Maple Peppercorn Bacon is spicy, peppery, sweet and bacon. It's the bacon-est bacon that ever baconed and you will love it. Not only because you put so much love and effort into it. (Flipping that bag filled with meat once per day is really difficult you guys!) Okay really the hardest parts were the waiting and then not eating it all as soon as it was off the smoker. The smell is just beyond amazing.

Allergen Free Muffins

Allergen Free Muffins

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free

Posted on October 01, 2015
Allergen Free Muffins. I'd love to say that these came from a desire to make something special for a friend who has a special diet, but no. I had no fruit to go in my yogurt, and had no ingredients to make my Oatmeal Date Muffins, or any normal muffins at all for that matter. Seriously, I needed to figure out what to make because I had no eggs either! I couldn't even make a quick omelette or anything! But I needed breakfast so I made due with what I had on hand. Did you know that you can substitute ground flax for eggs in a recipe? In the end, these moist and filling muffins wound up being delicious and shareable!
