Sticky Rum Pudding

Sticky Rum Pudding

With Cream

Posted on June 16, 2015
Sticky Rum Pudding With Cream was inspired by a visit last weekend with the Husband's Granny. We were making fun of my lower than average tolerance of alcohol, and her amazing rum cake that I managed to get drunk off of, all while enjoying a restaurant's version of Sticky Toffee Pudding. I had this brilliant idea to make the cake in little bundt tins, not the full sized one, and have individual, beautiful, little puddings. Their middles would be filled to overflowing with the Sticky Toffee sauce, and you would top it all with cream. So imagine, if you will, a perfect marriage of a rum and date cake with a boozy toffee sauce, served hot, with ice cold cream on top. Let's just say we were all right happy at the end of the evening.

How To Cook A Whole Lobster

How To Cook A Whole Lobster

The easy way to cook your first live lobster

Posted on June 10, 2015
With June being Soul Food Month, World Oceans Day June 8th and National Lobster Day on June 15th, I ended up with Lobster on the brain. Having never done a whole live lobster before, I needed to know How To Cook A Whole Lobster. I started where most people do, by shouting "To the Googles!!!" and running to the computer. After youTube-ing a few videos, it seemed easy enough. Boiling water, toss it in. Now we needed to find one. There's generally a live tank at most good grocers, but you want to make sure that you talk to the person at the counter. If they have no idea, go somewhere else. We hit the jackpot on our first try and got Pinchy. It was a little too early for a lobster dinner when we got her home, so we just let her run around until we were ready to cook. Introduced her to the cats, made her feel at home. Okay not really. I was hoping for a little Captain Kirk vs. Gorn action with the cats and Pinchy, but they were indifferent, so she went into her little box and chilled out in the fridge until dinner.

Posted on June 09, 2015
Chicken 'N' Biscuits With Gravy, another recipe perfect for Soul Food Month. Juicy chicken with flakey buttermilk biscuits, served with some greens and topped with creamy milk gravy, who could ask for anything more? Oh wait! I could! How about we throw this all on the grill? I did and it was glorious.

Nectarine Crumble

Nectarine Crumble

In A Cast Iron Skillet

Posted on June 09, 2015
Usually my go to comfort dessert is Apple Crisp, but we were out of apples. So I opted to use nectarines instead, and thus Nectarine Crumble In A Cast Iron Skillet was born. This dessert comes together pretty quickly and the end result smells and tastes beautiful. Placing the still steaming fruit onto a bed of fresh vanilla bean ice cream just takes these nectarines to the next level. Now I bet you're wondering, what happens if I have a bad batch of nectarines? Well I actually DID have a bad batch, they weren't juicy, but pasty when they're ripe. If that's the case, this dessert will take these horrible and tasteless fruits and turn them into a dessert fit for kings, and queens, and little princes or princesses.

Blackened Catfish

Blackened Catfish

All that is blackened is not burnt

Posted on June 03, 2015
June is National Soul Food Month, so I did some research into what foods were considered to be Soul Food. Blackened Catfish was very close to the top of the list, and I definitely thought "I could grill that". And grill I did! Buttery and flavorful, you would be surprised, blackened is not burned, or at least not burnt tasting. And we paired it with rice and lemon for a very awesome meal. Catfish, for those like me, who don't really do the seafood thing, is definitely a fishy flavored fish but it's not overpowering. I quite liked it. Not only that, but this recipe turned out to be super fast and pretty darn easy to make too!

Chicken And Waffles

Chicken And Waffles

Yep, you can grill it!

Posted on June 03, 2015
The month of June is National Soul Food Month. I've been wanting to do Chicken And Waffles for a while now, having never tried them, and National Soul Food Month was the perfect opportunity to do so. This meal is by no means, in any way, the least bit healthy. But it is delicious. For added grillitude, once the chicken was fried, I glazed it over direct heat with maple syrup, 'cause, you know, I had to make it more awesome somehow. I truly recommend making this outside if you can. Frying food inside can be a messy business.

Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Glorious circles of bacon-chocolate goodness

Posted on June 03, 2015
Last week we posted a recipe for Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies on our Facebook page. It was a re-share of a share - well you know how it goes, but I want to thank the Recipe Girl for the original recipe which you will find here!! Basically I couldn't not try making these. I did not make them Gluten Free and they were enough to entice someone who shouldn't be eating gluten to eat at least five cookies! She told me later that it was well beyond worth it. The husband's co-workers? Totally beyond jealous. Seriously. Grown men, carpenters, openly weeping as he eats the cookies in front of them, smirking.

Candied Pork Back Ribs

Candied Pork Back Ribs

Sticky And Rib-Tickling Tasty

Posted on May 28, 2015
We had a real craving for ribs recently and I just had to act on it. So we made these Candied Pork Back Ribs to fill that void. Usually we make Maple Bacon Ribs, but I wanted to go for something a little different this time round, something special for the first ribs of the season. So I seasoned, smoked, melted and basted my way into these amazing ribs.

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.
