Holiday Stuffing

Holiday Stuffing

with Grill Roasted Chestnuts and Sausage

Posted on December 14, 2016
To celebrate Roasted Chestnuts Day, I had to try roasting chestnuts over an open fire. That’s a song isn’t it? Anyway, after roasting a big bag full of these yummy beauties I needed to do something super festive with them. Holiday Stuffing with Grill-Roasted Chestnuts and Sausage seemed like a great way to use these freshly roasted nuts to their fullest potential. This dish is a great side for any roasted poultry based family dinner.

Goat Cheese Risotto

With Roasted Red Peppers

Posted on December 08, 2016
I wanted to make a meatless meal that was rich and satisfying. I was at a loss, searching until I saw a title - Goat Cheese Risotto and my search was over. I just went from there, adding roasted red peppers, a couple kinds of cheese, peas, and fresh herbs until I had a filling dish that would be suitable for both a side dish and a full meal. In the end, this meal was so much better than I could have imagined.

It’s National Sundae Day soon. Don’t relegate yourself to consuming copious amounts of ice cream layered with delicious tidbits like strawberries, chocolate fudge, and whipped cream. (Not that this is a bad thing) Why not try something layered with more savory treats? BBQ Sundaes are made with the expectation that you have prepared each of the ingredients prior to beginning this fun way of serving your favorite barbecued delicacies. If not, you better get grilling. I’ve made some recipe suggestions for you, picking out my favorites for these delicious BBQ Sundae layers.

Spicy Chili with Dark Chocolate

Spicy Chili with Dark Chocolate

on the Grill

Posted on October 25, 2016
To celebrate National Chocolate Day on October 28th, I created three savory dishes that prove Chocolate isn’t just for dessert. You can check out my Chocolate Rubbed Back Ribs and Chocolate Rubbed Steaks here. After experimenting with a few different applications of chocolate in savory food, it was decided that I had to use the real thing in a dish. Also, it’s nearly November, something warming, like a stew, was definitely needed as well. This Spicy Chili with Dark Chocolate is the strangest chili that I have ever made, though it is certainly the most delicious. If you need a warm bowl of yum on a cool day, you need to try this chili.

Skirlie

Skirlie

Savory Scottish Oatmeal

Posted on October 21, 2016
While in Scotland I tried loads of different and wonderful foods including haggis, black pudding, white pudding, mealies and Skirlie. My favorite out of all of them was Skirlie, a Savory Scottish Oatmeal side dish that is usually served with beef – particularily mince and tatties, (think shepherd’s pie). This is probably due to the fact that one of the main ingredients for this recipe is suet, the raw hard fat found on beef and mutton. Don’t let that strange ingredient phase you. Skirlie is incredible. It’s fragrant, and intensely satisfying!

A day that all Canadians, and fans of this Canadian cuisine staple, to go out and celebrate by indulging in copious amounts of deep fried potatoes, cheese curds, and gravy with all of the passion of an avid hockey fan watching the winning goal. Grilled Foil Packet Poutine is a great way to make individual or sharable pouches of semi-portable poutine for consumption. This is an easy recipe that you can also make while camping.

Grill Baked Pierogies

Grill Baked Pierogies

with Lamb and Vodka Cream Sauce

Posted on October 12, 2016
I have been itching to do this recipe for some time, however Grill Baked Pierogies with Lamb and Vodka Cream Sauce just never seemed to make it onto my weekly schedule of things to cook. Until now. My friend Jeffrey, gave me the base recipe and said that I should “go to town” with regards to meat and sauce choices. When I brought him the leftovers he polished them off with delight, saying that I had made them even better than he usually does. This from the man who made this pierogie recipe into an art form. I recommend eating this meal on your cheat day because, trust me, you’re going to want to eat a lot of it.

As House Stark is fond of saying, “Winter is Coming”. To prepare for the long months of cold temperatures we decided to make some Homemade Pickles With Garlic & Dill. These babies (baby cucumbers that is) are delicious, with the crunchy-tang that pairs perfectly with your favorite sandwiches and burgers. The perfect way to preserve the produce you grew over the summer.

It’s Pizza – For Breakfast!

Posted on September 28, 2016

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I spend a lot of time on the Internet. Recently, I saw a photo of a delicious looking pizza with cooked eggs on top. It was some sort of dinner pizza, but I immediately thought that pizza would make a perfect breakfast food, especially made fresh and topped with eggs. Thus Breakfast Pizza and its resulting deliciousness came into being. Next time though, I am adding Hollandaise sauce!

Roast Your Own Coffee At Home

Posted on September 13, 2016
In preparation for National Coffee Day on September 29th, I used my grill to smoke, and roast some green-unroasted coffee beans. Yes, you too can make your own Smoked Coffee using a grill! It was a little nerve wracking at first, but once I got everything moving, it turned out to be super easy.
