Seared Steak

Seared Steak

with Foil Pack Potatoes & Grill Wok Veggies

Posted on May 16, 2017

Not every meal needs to be fancy, intricate, or crazy. With simple ingredients that you should already have at home, you can make Seared Steak with Foil Pack Potatoes & Grill Wok Veggies. This recipe works with just about any kind of steak; you just need to remember that it will take longer to achieve a delicious medium-rare if the steak is thicker than an inch. If you don’t have baby potatoes, regular potatoes work just as well for this recipe, and any veggies that you have, even frozen ones, are perfect. 

The timing for this whole recipe should be dictated by the thickness of your steaks. The ones I cooked were nearly 2½ inches thick. That meant, to reach an internal temperature of 135°F, it took around 40 minutes, after searing, for the steaks to cook. Keep this in mind if your steaks are thinner, and cook them after the vegetables and potatoes have been on for a while.

Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing

Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing

And Feta, Raisins, and Cranberries

Posted on April 18, 2017
I’ll be honest, this recipe happened for two reasons. One, I happened to immolate the roasted beet and asparagus side dish that I was going to serve with my Espresso Rubbed Prime Rib. Two, I went WAYYYYY overboard when making some carrot cake for dessert. Luckily that meant that I had loads of perfectly shredded carrots for a Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing, Feta, Raisins, and Cranberries, which turned out to be a delicious side dish.

Vegan Zucchini Bread

Vegan Zucchini Bread

Gluten Free, Egg Free, Dairy Free

Posted on April 18, 2017
It’s difficult, in this day and age, to make something that absolutely everyone can eat. That’s where this Vegan Zucchini Bread comes in. It’s gluten free, egg free, and dairy free, much like my recipe for Allergen Free Muffins. Although this zucchini bread is a bit on the dense side, it’s still pretty awesome. If you want to make this using eggs instead, make sure to beat the eggs very well, it will lighten the recipe up significantly, creating a very fluffy version of this quick bread.

Easter Mixed Grill

Easter Mixed Grill

Something for Everyone

Posted on April 12, 2017
Many people are a little leery of doing a mixed grill because of the different times that all of the meat will need to be cooked, however,  it’s a lot easier than you think. An Easter Mixed Grill just requires you to pick your favorite meats and organize them by cook time. The veggies are easy; they generally manage themselves once you get them onto the grill. Here’s how it’s done.

Lemon & Blueberry Cake

Lemon & Blueberry Cake

A Fresh & Spring-y Dessert

Posted on April 12, 2017
This Easter season, try a light and fresh Lemon & Blueberry Cake for dessert. This confection tastes as good as it looks, and boy does it ever look good! The light lemony flavor of the cake pairs perfectly with the tart blueberries. The cream cheese icing just makes it all even better. I served this to finish off a beautiful family dinner. Everyone made room for this cake after eating their fill of dinner - and whomever you serve this too, will as well. This cake is so ideal for the season; it even smells like spring.

Roasted Potato Salad

Roasted Potato Salad

With Black Garlic Vinaigrette

Posted on March 29, 2017
While shopping for ingredients, I found a package of black garlic. “What is that?” you may ask. Well, black garlic is whole heads of garlic that have been fermented in a process that is a lot like dry aging meat. Black garlic generally has a sweeter taste than fresh garlic, which makes it perfect for this tasty treat. I made Roasted Potato Salad With Black Garlic Vinaigrette when I decided that I wanted something a little different than a creamy potato salad. Looking through my pantry of spices, I spied the black garlic I had just purchased and things just happened from there.

Red Wine Chocolate Cake

Red Wine Chocolate Cake

with Wine Soaked Berries, Red Wine Ganache, and Creamy Frosting

Posted on March 07, 2017
Red Wine Chocolate Cake with Wine Soaked Berries, Red Wine Ganache, and Creamy Frosting is a mouthful, both to say and to eat. This double layer cake is rich with a light frosting to compliment the dark flavors. This cake was at once dense and deep, while light and tart, the cream frosting tying everything together nicely. I made this recipe gluten free so that a friend could enjoy it with us, and you couldn’t even tell that it was. If you want to celebrate spring, add this recipe to your menu, you won’t be disappointed.

Kahlua Chocolate Cake

Kahlua Chocolate Cake

with Strawberries & Cream

Posted on February 22, 2017
Kahlua Chocolate Cake with Strawberries & Cream was created in celebration of National Kahlua  Day and National Strawberry Day. How fortuitous is it that these two things would share a dedicated day. Mashing the two of these delicious flavors together was far easier than I had imagined. The sweet fresh strawberries, creamy icing, and dense cake come together for a flavorful dessert that is at once hearty and light.
