Mostly-Authentic Fettuccini Alfredo

Mostly-Authentic Fettuccini Alfredo

With The Napoleon Stainless Steel Wok

Posted on February 08, 2017
To celebrate National Fettuccini Alfredo Day I made myself some Mostly-Authentic Fettuccini Alfredo With The Napoleon Stainless Steel Wok. Super authentic Fettuccini is all butter and parmesan, with little else other than the pasta itself, however, I wanted a little extra, so there’s a splash of cream and a whole lot of garlic (naturally).

Pork Belly Sliders

Pork Belly Sliders

with Thai Mango Salad

Posted on January 31, 2017
Sure, you can easily make petite patties and slap them on miniature buns for your Super Bowl nosh, but why not turn your taste buds up to eleven with some unique Pork Belly Sliders with Thai Mango Salad. You’ll want to serve these on fresh brioche buns, or maybe even get real fancy with homemade steam buns. I borrowed stole some dough from the recipe for Homemade Pretzel Bites and created deliciously dense buns that worked well for this recipe, however, feel free to contain the deliciousness from this recipe in a bun-ly creation of your choice.

Coffee & Caramel Brownies

Coffee & Caramel Brownies

Strong, warm, gooey, melty and chocolaty

Posted on January 17, 2017

Coffee & Caramel Brownies happened because I needed chocolate. You don’t understand. It’s not that I have a craving. It’s more like a requirement. At that moment in time, I required strong, warm, gooey, melty chocolate. So I decided to make brownies. 

Coffee brings out the best in chocolate 9 times out of 10, so obviously, I had to add some espresso powder to jazz things up a bit. Actually, I also added some plain greek yogurt to give these brownies even more oomph too. Then, to top everything off, I capped these brownies with a heaping helping of caramel sauce. The result? Delicious, strong, warm, gooey, melty chocolate brownies!

Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

with Ginger Infused Maple Syrup

Posted on January 11, 2017
The best thing about being an adult is that you can eat whatever you want for dinner. The other night, neither of us felt like eating a meal, meat and potatoes, pasta, nothing at all sounded good. You know what did though? Apple Crumble with Ginger Infused Maple Syrup. Fresh apples, sweet maple syrup with spicy ginger, and cinnamon, and top it all off with fresh ice cream for a delicious meal… I mean dessert!

Gingerbread

Gingerbread

Make a whole village of cookie people

Posted on December 14, 2016
Gingerbread is an integral part of the holidays, like lights, trees, and hot chocolate. Ever since I started working on this blog, I have wanted to do one thing. Make a Gingerbread Grill. Yes, a Napoleon Grill made of Gingerbread. My husband, a total genius, did the math and plotted out the parts, but in the end, the project was far too ambitious. The grill would have stood well over 24-inches tall! Instead, we opted to go with the more traditional Gingerbread Men, who turned out beautiful, delicious, and festive in their red jumpers.

NOTE* - You will want to use a stand mixer for this recipe unless you are very strong and have a lot of stamina. The dough gets pretty stiff near the end.

Goat Cheese Risotto

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.

White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart

White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart

A Sweet Christmassy Treat

Posted on December 08, 2016
The idea for White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart came about shortly after making the  Chocolate & Espresso Tart. I was writing the recipe to share, and suddenly it hit me. What if I used white chocolate?! From there the recipe evolved as I considered what would taste great with the white chocolate. Initially, I had a vision of a beautiful white tart with swirls of green and crumbles of peppermint on top. Things went a little sideways when I accidentally overheated the white chocolate and it bound. (That means that chocolate went from this smooth and creamy mixture to a hard and grainy blob.) I was able to fix it a little, but the liquid separated out. To rescue this, I topped the whole thing with a layer of dark chocolate ganache. Feel free to make this look however you like, though. Swirl the white, dark, and mint chocolate together, or layer them all separately. It’s up to you and how you feel this dessert should look.

Posted on November 16, 2016
If you are looking for a soup that will fill you up and then some, this Potato Leek Soup with Smoked Cream and Three Cheeses is a soup that blasts “eats like a meal” out of the water! This soup eats like an all you can eat buffet! It’s rich, smoky, creamy, and super thick. It is packed with so much flavor! I’m not known for being a soup person (probably why there aren’t that many soup recipes on the blog), but this one will make a believer out of you. Or at least a soup lover.

Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots

Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots

on the Grill

Posted on November 16, 2016
I’ve made these Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots a few times. It is the dish most often requested when I offer to bring something to family functions. The relatively simple glaze is loaded with Umami flavor. Read more about The Science of Barbecue – Why Grilled Food Tastes Good to learn more about Umami. This is a side dish that adds a bright pop of color to your table. The deep roasted flavor of the carrots pairs perfectly with whatever dish you serve. You can use regular carrots, go fancy with young carrots with the green tops still on, or even get really crazy and use brightly colored heirloom carrots.  However you slice or peel them, this side dish is de-lilsh!
