Three Cheese Grilled Cheese

With Roasted Red Peppers, Bacon & Onion

Posted on June 24, 2015
Three Cheese Grilled Cheese With Roasted Red Peppers, Bacon & Onion happened by accident. Yep. The cheese just landed like that and layered into a perfect sandwich with the roasted peppers. Okay, not really. But I was standing in the kitchen wondering what the heck I was going to grill, considering I forgot to pull out some meat before going to the gym that morning. My eyes alighted on a sourdough loaf lounging there on the counter, beckoning me to just slice it and eat it right then and there. And I thought to myself that would make some pretty darn good grilled cheese. So I opened the refrigerator, and noticed that, not only did I have some cheddar, the best cheese ever, but I had goat cheese and Monterey Jack too. Rummaging further, looking for the butter, I saw peppers and an onion, lazily sitting there, being all good for nothing. Actually the pepper was pointing at the bacon, hoping not to be noticed itself I guess. So bacon joined the growing ingredients list too. Finally I had it. Three Cheese Grilled Cheese With Roasted Red Peppers, Bacon & Onion.

Cheesy Baked Onion Rings

Cheesy Baked Onion Rings

Rings Of Awesome More Like It

Posted on June 23, 2015
For those times when you want onion rings but you can't wait for those awesome Smoke Rings, bake yourself some Cheesy Baked Onion Rings. I love the sharp onion-y flavor and opted to go with a white onion, but it's all about preference, sweet vidalia onions are good too. But really it's all about that crunchy baked outside. Using crushed crackers instead of bread crumbs or panko really make these things pop-able. And don't forget to finish it all off with your favorite dipping sauce. You could carry the theme and do a blue cheese dip, but I loved the sweet and savory of the Shōchū sauce.

Grilled Beef And Broccoli

Grilled Beef And Broccoli

Good Chinese On The Grill

Posted on June 23, 2015
Grilled Beef and Broccoli came about when I had a craving for Chinese food the other day. My favorite dish is Beef And Broccoli, but I wanted to put a grilled spin on the whole deal. So I did. The broccoli came out slightly spicier than I envisioned, but otherwise it was a very delicious meal. Served with rice and topped with sesame seeds and green onion, it looked like a fancy, five star restaurant version of Beef and Broccoli.

Bison Burgers Stuffed

Bison Burgers Stuffed

With Goat Cheese And Mushrooms

Posted on June 18, 2015
I love cooking for special occasions, my family loves it too. So last family get together I made Bison Burgers Stuffed With Goat Cheese And Mushrooms. These rich burgers combined the leanest meat with the most decadent flavors of fried mushrooms and creamy, unripened goat cheese. Grandmother is insisting that I open a restaurant and serve all of the delicious things that I share with you on the blog. No. I like where I am at. I like making things and keeping a regular schedule of 9 to 5-ish. I love making delicious grilled food and learning about all things barbecue with everyone. Where was I going? Oh well.

Bison Burgers! They're so good and decadent and rich. The Napoleon Burger Press is super helpful in making these, all burgers are identically formed with the perfect divot for the cheese and mushrooms to nestle in. The burger press also takes forming time down quite a bit, and you're not handling the meat as much either.

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

With Shōchū BBQ Sauce

Posted on June 17, 2015
Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings With Shōchū BBQ Sauce, I guess I could have shortened it to just Smoke Rings, but then you wouldn't know what I was talking about right? These are smoky, sweet, and the barbecue sauce adds that little extra kick.

It was quite the comedy of errors when I went to make these. They were supposed to go on the Goat Cheese And Mushroom Stuffed Bison Burgers, but that didn't happen. I got a call as we were leaving to go to my Mother's, she had forgotten to tell the Grandparents what time the party was at. So, that was great because it gave us the extra time to smoke the onions. So we arrived and immediately went about trying to set up a dry place for my TravelQ™.  There was loads of space on the deck, but you couldn't see it for the sheets of rain falling. 

With the TravelQ™ set up on a wheelbarrow and warming, I prepped the smoker tube and placed the rings. Not ten minutes later, the Grandparents arrived early, and hungry, for our little party. Off came the rings and on went the burgers instead. And the tube had just started smoking too. Sigh.

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.

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!
