BBQ Glazed Ham

BBQ Glazed Ham

with Smoked Honey and Dijon

Posted on October 03, 2017

BBQ Glazed Ham with Smoked Honey and Dijon was originally made as an easy Easter Dinner in 2015, however, I chose to break with tradition and make this for Thanksgiving dinner this year. Little prep time for this meal means that it’s easy to get going while you work on more labor-intensive dishes, or enjoy time with your family. This time, I tried using the rotisserie instead of placing the ham onto a baking sheet. The end result was a ham that was shiny and flavorful on every side. Caramelized crispy bits mingled nicely with a sticky outside and the salty ham inside. Smoked honey adds a new dimension of flavor that is very subtle, lending itself immediately to the flavor of the ham.

Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots

Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots

on the Grill

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!

Scottish Dijon Beef Roast

Scottish Dijon Beef Roast

Savory Scottish Sustenance

Posted on October 21, 2016
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Scotland; the food there gave me a feeling of homey, farm-y-ness that I don’t feel living in the city in Canada. Scottish Dijon Beef Roast came from my desire to relive these experiences. To make it really authentic, you need to get your hands on some Black Angus beef, though a good quality roast will be just as delicious.
