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.

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.

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.

Grilled Pear Salad

Grilled Pear Salad

With Feta

Posted on May 14, 2015
Grilled Pear Salad With Feta is a surprising salad. The smoky sweet, warm pears are matched well with the feta cheese for a rich, lavish flavor without spending the big bucks. We made this to go with the Easy Goats Cheese Soufflé because I didn't want to have something too heavy with it. All in all, this was a very satisfying and light meal that didn't leave us wanting more.

Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing

Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing

Perfect On Spinach Salad

Posted on May 06, 2015
I prepared Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing to go with my Lamb Sliders for Mother's Day luncheon and it paired perfectly. Lamb has an earthy flavor that needs to be lightened up with colorful and bright flavors meaning a fresh salad is perfect, and Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing sticks to that salad's bones when you use it.  It's thick, and has all the makings of a perfect dressing. The tang, the sweet and onions.

Posted on April 14, 2015
April 16th is National Eggs Benedict Day, so you need to eat something eggsy and smothered in hollandaise sauce. May I suggest Eggs Benedict With Asparagus Wrapped In Prosciutto And Sourdough Toast? Perhaps I should demand you make this. Or any of these recipes too. This decadent and filling food had a fantastic balance of salty and creamy, the juicy asparagus had just the tiniest crunch to it and the sourdough toast just makes everything magical.

Crispy Potato Galette

Crispy Potato Galette

Your Potatoes Will Never Be The Same

Posted on April 07, 2015
Crispy Potato Galette is like crunchy potato heaven. A delicious pie of crispy potatoes. It's like nothing I have ever had. And I think this may be the only way I prepare potatoes forevermore. Can you tell I enjoyed it? Are you sure? Yes, I thought that it was strange that this recipe is named like a razor, but the only thing this recipe is cutting is your preconceptions of what a potato side dish could be. I took it a little easy on the flavors, opting for salt and pepper and a little fresh rosemary basically, and what we got in return was pure awesome. Go ahead, try this for yourself! Right now! I mean it! I say that a lot don't I? What can I say? I love food.

Creamy, Crunchy Scalloped Potatoes

Creamy, Crunchy Scalloped Potatoes

Creamy, Crunchy Scalloped Potatoes

Posted on March 31, 2015
Creamy, Crunchy Scalloped Potatoes feature the best of both worlds when it comes to texture. Then there's the flavor. You won't get this kind of awesome from a box. No sir! It may take a little prep work but this side dish is completely worth the added labor. Although, getting into that box of "scalloped potatoes" that's been in your pantry for who knows how long is really a lot of work. This recipe is far easier than trying to stick your thumb through that "perforated" top. And when you can't do that you resort to using a knife, which works, but you stab the packet with the flavor powder in it. The powder goes everywhere and you have the dog licking at the floor and you haven't even gotten to the cooking part yet. Naw, go the route of home made and save yourself the hassle. Plus you get all the flavor!
