Homemade Sausage Rolls

Homemade Sausage Rolls

Fresh pork makes a difference

Posted on December 22, 2015
This year instead of a traditional Christmas Dinner, we're going to have Christmas Brunch with the family. We plan on putting on a big spread with Mini Quiche, Fresh Biscuits, fruit and cheese trays, Bacon, Cranberry, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, and of course these Homemade Sausage Rolls. We are definitely thinking outside the hotdog bun this year. These Sausage Rolls are made from freshly ground pork meat that we seasoned ourselves and you will love the results if you do the same.

Pulled Pork Tacos

Pulled Pork Tacos

You're having soft tacos later

Posted on December 15, 2015
Pulled Pork Tacos happened when I realized that we didn't have any beef for Taco Tuesday. OH the humanity! Whatever shall we do?! Yep! That's right! Pull that pulled pork out of the freezer and load it up with taco seasoning, fried peppers and onions. Then toss that into soft taco shells and load them with all of the fixin's for a fast weeknight dinner that will have them asking for Taco Tuesday on Wednesday and Thursday too!

Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

A strange twist on a home-style classic

Posted on December 15, 2015
Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie is an "I have some pork and some sweet potatoes, now what?" sort of recipe. It was chilly that day, so I wanted something cozy to eat, and easy to make. That's when I thought, why not make a shepherd's pie! This recipe is overflowing with savory gravy. Instead of the typical peas and corn, I went with sweet green pepper. Then I added LOADS of pork topped it with a creamy and crispy sweet potato crust. What's not to love about this recipe?

Peanut Butter Bacon Balls

Peanut Butter Bacon Balls

Sound naughty, taste nice

Posted on December 15, 2015
This recipe began as a sad failure. Though not in the way you would expect. I tried to make the Vanilla Bean Shortbread using gluten free flour. The cookies ... well I don't know what they did. I rolled them, and cut them, and they just, kind of, melted. They didn't exactly get crispy. They definitely did not hold their shape. I peeled them off the cookie sheet after baking and placed them onto a plate where they proceeded to melt into some sort of blob of shortbread. I really didn't want to waste such delicious amounts of butter and sugar, but what was I going to do with a literal BLOB of cookie. Then I thought, why not add peanut butter, chocolate and bacon? Peanut Butter Bacon Balls were born. Think cake pops without sticks and with cookie instead of cake.

Steak Diane

Steak Diane

With A Twist

Posted on December 10, 2015
Steak Diane is a  decadent little meal that is supremely enjoyable. The steak is tender and flavorful, the sauce is amazing, (But anything that is made with whisky and heavy cream would be right?), and everything else on the plate just makes it that much more delightful. I actually made this because I had nothing else in the house for food. I cook a lot and need groceries a lot, it's a thing. Anyway, I just happened to have some beef tenderloin, the ends that were trimmed from the Beef Wellington Recipe, the other ingredients... not so much, but it sure was delicious.

Chili Glazed Salmon

Chili Glazed Salmon

There's nothing fishy about this dish

Posted on December 09, 2015
Chili Glazed Salmon is sweet and caramelized, the perfectly grilled salmon, flaking easily when you touch it with a fork or tongs. Pair this with your favorite seasonal veggies for a quick and easy meal that will knock your tastebuds into next week. I threw together the glaze for a video shoot. I wanted to make the salmon look super succulent, and it totally worked. When I got home and served this for dinner on a bed of rice, with a little extra sauce, the husband was blown away.

Vanilla Bean Shortbread

Vanilla Bean Shortbread

On The Grill

Posted on December 09, 2015
It's the holiday season and you can't celebrate without making cookies. So for National Cookie Day I made Vanilla Bean Shortbread. First thing you should know is that these cookies do not do well if you make them with Gluten Free flour. They melt into unidentifiable (yet delicious) blobs. Okay back on track. You have to chill these cookies before you roll and cut them, that's part of the secret. And trust me, they are delicious when done. I love shortbread.

Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake

Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake

With Brownie Crust

Posted on December 02, 2015
After Halloween, we somehow managed to have candy left. I needed to make sure that it was used in a manner fitting of such strong, warrior-like candy. It survived being eaten for over a week after the costumed children came to pillage! Not to mention that this house contains not one but TWO chocoholics! Anyway, as a fitting memorial of our first Halloween with trick or treaters, and candy that survived longer than a week, I made this prestigious, layered confection of Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake. It was good.

Sweet Chili Shrimp

Sweet Chili Shrimp

Sweet and spicy seafood

Posted on December 02, 2015
Sweet Chili Shrimp is a great appetizer or meal, depending how you serve them. These little guys surprise the palate with their initial sweetness, then kick it in to high gear, finishing with a little fire. Ooooh, I am on fire describing these shrimpies aren't I? When I help with photo and video shoots at work, I love ensuring the food is good enough to eat afterwards. We wanted something colorful and tasty looking for a new accessory that we're working on, and I created quite the ticket with these shrimp. With the sauce and their cooked to pink perfection, they looked great on film, and when we were done everyone got to enjoy a taste.

Fully Loaded Guacamole

Fully Loaded Guacamole

This recipe will get your guac on!

Posted on December 02, 2015
I've been trying to find ways to sneak avocados into more food. They're super good for you, but there is just something about the green mushy thing that I can't figure out. They're also like bananas, unripe forever, then you have a day or so of perfection, then suddenly they're gross! Just got to get into the avocado groove I guess. Anyway, I had such success with the awesome, creamy, and delightful Thai Chilli Guacamole, that when my co-worker and fellow foodie was telling about this incredible guac he made, I just had to try it. Since then I have made Fully Loaded Guacamole about 4 more times.
