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!

Grilled Chicken Chimichangas

Grilled Chicken Chimichangas

Because Yummy!

Posted on February 19, 2016
I was asked to cook chimichangas for a group of friends in celebration of a certain movie finally coming out. Naturally I had to find a way to incorporate the grill into this recipe, then document the entire process. So I wound up making Grilled Chicken Chimichangas and I can’t believe the amazing flavor we were able to pack into these little packets of amazingness.

Homemade Hot Italian Sausage

Homemade Hot Italian Sausage

Making it yourself is easy and fun!

Posted on September 01, 2015
This recipe is all about How To Make Hot Italian Sausage. Actually wait. I should back up. I have been waiting for nearly a year to finally do this. Make my own sausage. I initially set out to make something a little more mild when it came to a sausage, so the flavor that we ended up with was a lot spicier than intended, but it's ALL flavor, not just heat for heat's sake. I started with research. I wanted to make something actually easy, and needed to source out good ingredients. Then I needed to make sure that I had the spices that would create the flavors we were looking for. And finally we had to just do it. 

I think the biggest thing that holds people up is the casing, and stuffing. Casings are either synthetic or animal based. They don't smell great, and they're really gross. But they're an essential part of the process. I recommend going to your local butcher (The Butcher Shop Barrie is ours) and talking to them about casings, which ones they use and if they have any tips and tricks. You will get a lot of bang for your buck that way too. We got enough to make quadruple of what this recipe makes! Now for the pork. You can use a Boston butt, and add pork fat, or ask about pork trimmings. It's a bag full of random stuff, literally. But it will also give you a lot to work with, which is good, and possibly less expensive than buying a whole pork shoulder for this project.

Sweet Heat Roasted Squash Seeds

Sweet Heat Roasted Squash Seeds

Great Tasting Source Of Protein

Posted on November 25, 2014
Sweet Heat Roasted Squash Seeds are a fantastic source of meatless protein, they go great as a snack on their own, or you can toss them into your favorite trail mix or granola for some added umph. I was making Butternut Squash and Curry Soup and had all these seeds. It felt so wrong to just throw them away, so I decided that I needed to make something with them. I just rummaged through the spice rack and grabbed what sounded like it would go best.

Beer Marinade

Beer Marinade

Acidic Marinade

Posted on June 28, 2011

This marinade is great for red meats, and only takes 20 minutes to make. You may want to have extra beer though…one for you, one for the marinade… It is great to make in batches, and you can cover it, refrigerating for up to 3 weeks if unused.
