BBQ Strawberry Shortcake

BBQ Strawberry Shortcake

With Bourbon Whipped Cream

Posted on June 05, 2018

This is a gentleman’s dessert. Manly. Or at least that was my intention when I created this recipe for BBQ Strawberry Shortcake With Bourbon Whipped Cream. I imagined gentlemen sitting around in their club chairs, talking about the big cricket game, raised bourbon glasses, and monocles…huh that fantasy went off the rails somewhere. Anyway, I figure that sure, a succulent steak or ridiculous rack of ribs is great for a meal, but men may want dessert too! So, that’s where my BBQ Strawberry Shortcake came in. Filled with bold and smoky flavors, and made on the grill, how could I go wrong?

One Hour Maple Bourbon Ribs

Finger Lickin' Ribs, Lickety Split

This is another recipe that happened due to a video shoot. We needed ribs for an accessory video and we had a lot of other things that needed doing that day so these ribs had to be done, and done fast. I am one who is loathe to waste food when it's unnecessary, so I had to make them not only look good but taste good too. One Hour Maple Bourbon Ribs are the result, and let me tell you, the result  is delicious. Check out this behind the scenes shot from Napoleon's Instagram account.

Smoked Chicken Wings

Smoked Chicken Wings

With Bourbon Hot Sauce

Posted on September 22, 2015
I like to make it count when I use the smoker. I mean you're there for the long haul, anywhere from 4 to 16 hours and sometimes longer. And if you're going to commit to that amount of time, you may as well get a lot out of it. So when we made Homemade Smoky Southwest Bacon, I also made sure to have some other things that could be smoked at the same time. I had some wings in the freezer, and wasn't sure what I wanted to do for dinner. But Smoked Chicken Wings sounded mighty good when you're sitting there smelling that meat smoking. That's how Smoked Chicken Wings With Bourbon Hot Sauce came about. Well the smoked wings part anyway. 

 

The sauce was sheer mishap. I didn't want to cheap out and get some store bought stuff, so I thought I would just throw together a sauce. Only, it didn't work out very well at all. My balances were way off in the beginning. But after adding a little of this and that, and a healthy dose of bourbon, I ended up with a lip tingling-ly good sauce.

Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Glorious circles of bacon-chocolate goodness

Posted on June 03, 2015
Last week we posted a recipe for Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies on our Facebook page. It was a re-share of a share - well you know how it goes, but I want to thank the Recipe Girl for the original recipe which you will find here!! Basically I couldn't not try making these. I did not make them Gluten Free and they were enough to entice someone who shouldn't be eating gluten to eat at least five cookies! She told me later that it was well beyond worth it. The husband's co-workers? Totally beyond jealous. Seriously. Grown men, carpenters, openly weeping as he eats the cookies in front of them, smirking.
