Peachy Porkebabs

Peachy Porkebabs

On A Bed Of Rice

Posted on August 25, 2015
Peaces are spectacular, sweet and juicy. But they' not just for desserts. These Peachy Porkebabs prove that. I bought a basket of peaches at the farmers market and knew that I couldn't eat them all, no matter how hard I tried. So I decided that they needed to be cooked in to things. But not just desserts, however sweet my sweet tooth is, I don't think that baking a bunch of peach pies and cakes, and other sweet treats was going to cut it, especially on a grilling blog. I needed to go savory, but how? Pork, is good with apples. Apples are round and sweet, they're a fruit, so are peaches. YES! That's it. I will make a peach barbecue sauce to go with my pork.

Peaches And Cream Cupcakes

Peaches And Cream Cupcakes

With Peach Drizzle

Posted on August 25, 2015
It's peach season. It's CNE* season too. Summer is winding down, not that this prevents me from grilling in any way, and in homage to both peach season and the CNE, I have made a portable and peachy dessert that you will love. These Peaches And Cream Cupcakes With Peach Drizzle, were light, and sweet, and definitely easy to make. 

*CNE is the Canadian National Exhibition, Canada's largest fair, with the best and most wackiest street food, rides and vendors from everywhere. It's a big deal.

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

With Tahini Sauce

Posted on August 25, 2015
The success of the Chicken Shawarma recipe made me realize how delicious Shawarma can be. I wanted to make it again, but I also wanted to make a meal that was just a little different too. Lebanese Beef Shawarma With Tahini Sauce fit the bill exactly, using some traditional spice combinations you can take beef to a whole new level. The only thing we didn't have was the fries to go in the pita. But man was this  ever some good food. 

Actually, having just moved into our new home, my husband and I have had some issues with appliances and unfinished stuff (new build), so having nowhere to put our dishes for the most part left us in kind of a pickle. A pickle that is solved by making food that is portable. I know, all my pretty dishes seem to be making it onto the site okay, and I guess I could use paper plates and what not, but there's no fun in that! I want to make the food work for me! So we did.

Grilled Bacon Lettuce And Tomato Sandwiches

Grilled Bacon Lettuce And Tomato Sandwiches

Introducing the GLT

Posted on August 18, 2015
Bacon is a treat for some. For others, myself and the husband included, it's weekend required eating. When asked what she would like to eat after a successfull Girl's Night In, my firend really wasn't up for eggs. What can I say, it was a big Bison Steak dinner! But, the thought of bacon was too much to turn down so instead I decided on BLT's for breakfast. So here I am prepping the ingredients, mulling over the acronym "BLT", I suddenly thought G.L.T!! Lightbulb! Grilled Bacon Lettuce And Tomato Sandwiches! YES! They were exquisite, by the way.

Chicken Flautas

Chicken Flautas

With Avocado Cream

Posted on August 18, 2015
Chicken Flautas With Avocado Cream are a Mexican dish that came out of nowhere. I hadn't heard of them until a coworker asked me if I had had one before. Nope, but they sound absolutely delicious! I must make some! So I did. Basically it's a fried chicken stuffed soft taco-burrito-thingy. They're sometimes called/confused with toquitos, which are very similar, but Flautas are larger and longer. So here is my take on the Chicken Flauta. (By the way they're really delicious.)

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Posted on August 18, 2015
I wanted to make something special for my friend who came to visit our house. So we went to the farmer's market downtown for some special food. We found bison at one booth, and all of the fresh produce at the others. I even got a basket of peaches that are totally blowing my mind right now. For dinner we made Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes. Everything came from the farmer's market. It was glorious.

Grilled S'mores Poutine

Grilled S'mores Poutine

Even better than it sounds

Posted on August 12, 2015
While eating dinner at my Grandparents' home, we were discussing different kinds of poutine. Then, out of nowhere, Grilled S'mores Poutine just kind of popped out of our mouths. The idea snowballed until we couldn't contain it any longer. But why would we want to? Graham cookie "fries" topped with marshmallow "cheese curds" and topped with chocolate ganache "gravy"? I have chills just typing about it. This will be a hit the next time you have a sleepover I can guarantee.

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

With Sweet Potato Fries

Posted on August 11, 2015
An elegant meal that is perfect for your next special occasion, Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon With Sweet Potato Fries was tender and delicious. The first official meal that I grilled at our new house, I thought it was about time to celebrate. It also happens to be Filet Mignon Day on August 13th - hey my lucky number! Sure you can just grill up a filet and be done with it, but I wanted to do something a little bit special. When you go to the butcher, ask for the cut you like the look of best, thickness and color is important. Then season up those beauties on all sides before wrapping with bacon and a secret ingredient.

How To Grill Corn On The Cob

How To Grill Corn On The Cob

In The Husk

Posted on August 10, 2015
So I've never done this, and my kitchen wasn't quite ready when we moved in. So we didn't exactly have a stove to even boil a pot of water. I needed another way to cook the side dish for dinner, my Bacon Wrapped Fillet Mignon, How To Grill Corn On The Cob was the first thing I searched online. I mean sure I could do the foil wrapped corn (Recipe Club August 2014), but I didn't want to cover the taste of the sweetest sweet corn, which would pair beautifully with the beef and bacon. So this is what you do:

Asian Beef Tenderloin

Asian Beef Tenderloin

With Tempura Onions And Gyoza Sauce

Posted on August 05, 2015
This is the recipe for my first ever video recipe. Asian Beef Tenderloin With Tempura Onions And Gyoza Sauce, it's elegant, yet easy. And boy does it taste good too. The beef nearly melts in your mouth, and the tartness from the sauce makes it sing. The Tempura Onions are a nice crunchy offset to the tender beef. All in all a very successful meal. You need to try it yourself. Video equipment and crew not required.
