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BBQ Glazed Ham with Smoked Honey and Dijon was originally made as an easy Easter Dinner in 2015, however, I chose to break with tradition and make this for Thanksgiving dinner this year.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 Garlic Chicken

Maple Garlic Chicken

Sweet, Sticky, Garlicky!

Posted on July 10, 2017
Maple Garlic Chicken is delicious. Super garlicky, sweet, and sticky. It goes great with just about anything you can think of to serve with it. A fresh salad with a tart and vinegary dressing pairs well, so do roasted potatoes, all salty and crisp.  This recipe is great for any chicken cut, from drumsticks to thighs, whole legs, and even breasts. Just remember to keep that skin on, because that is where the flavor is at.

Pfeffernüsse

Pfeffernüsse

German Gingerbread Cookies

Posted on December 21, 2016
I made these cookies to celebrate National Pfeffernüsse day. When I read that there was a day dedicated to Pfeffernüsse, I got thoroughly excited. You see, my cat - whose name is Hubert, is nicknamed Pfeffernüsse. I don’t know how it happened, or when, but there you have it. He’s round and white and brown, much like these cookies, not that I knew what they were until I saw that there was a date dedicated to this uniquely named confection. Pfeffernüsse or German Gingerbread Cookies, are delicious, fragrant, spicy, and sweet. They’re ideal for celebrating the holiday season, when a little extra warmth is always welcome.

Ginger Crusted Turkey Breast

Ginger Crusted Turkey Breast

With Club House La Grille Teriyaki Glaze

Posted on July 20, 2016
I have been craving Asian cuisine lately. A lot. I pulled out a turkey breast for dinner on the particular evening that this recipe was created, but didn’t overly feel like roasting it and making gravy. That’s when I decided to make Ginger Crusted Turkey Breast With Club House La Grille Teriyaki Glaze. Imagine crispy-skinned turkey breast, almost breaded with ginger and garlic, red pepper flakes, and a little clove. Then, when it’s nearly done, brushing on a lacquer of sweet teriyaki glaze. Serve this with rice and your favorite seasonal veggies for a meal that doesn’t require a major holiday to eat turkey.

Glazed Duck

Glazed Duck

With Spicy Fried Rice

Posted on January 05, 2016
A few weeks back I made Glazed Duck With Spicy Fried Rice for dinner. There's something about this Asian-inspired meal that marries the delicious spice of the rice with a sweet glaze on the duck for a meal that covers all of the bases. The rice is full of veggies so you don’t necessarily need to make more.  Although the more veg the merrier!  This is a very filling meal – one duck breast will feed you well.

Roasted Duck Legs

Roasted Duck Legs

Glazed With Plum Sauce

Posted on September 14, 2015
I really enjoy the deep savory flavor of duck. It's getting easier to find, but it's still a pretty expensive meat. I wanted to use the last of those delightful in season plums, and knew that the naturally salty flavor of the duck would mesh beautifully with the sweet and smoky flavor of the plums. That's how Roasted Duck Legs Glazed With Plum Sauce was born. I learned the hard way that garlic can quickly overpower the plums when making the sauce, but when all was said and done, everything worked out in the end. 

I served this meal with some roasted potatoes, tossed with fresh dill and gouda, as well as roasted broccoli, just lightly salted. All in all, a well rounded and delicious meal.
