Pomegranate Cheesecake

Pomegranate Cheesecake

with Pomegranate Syrup

Posted on July 24, 2017
It’s nearly National Cheesecake Day again - like I needed an excuse to make another cheesecake recipe. I wanted to make something a little different than my already copious chocoholic recipes and this tart Pomegranate Cheesecake hit the spot like a laser-guided dessert – What?! Those don’t exist? 

 

This gluten free dessert recipe is a take on the first cheesecake recipe that I posted on the blog. Don’t be fooled by the number of ingredients, the recipe does come together fairly quickly once you have the syrup made. The hard part is waiting for the cheesecake to cool so you can eat it.

Smoked Pulled Pork

Smoked Pulled Pork

Kansas City Style with a Canadian Twist

Posted on July 18, 2017
Smoked Pulled Pork is the ultimate summer party food. Soaked in sweet and spicy sauce, served on a bun, stuffed into a roasted potato (regular or sweet), and eaten with your closest friends and family, there is no doubt that summer is incomplete without making some smoked pulled pork. This recipe is KansasCity Style, with a bit of a Canadian Twist. I served this to my neighborhood when we had a block party to celebrate summer. It was the perfect porcine potluck provision to share. 

 

If you are making the pork ahead of time or to freeze for later, you can skip adding the sauce to the shredded pork. If packaging for the freezer, instead of serving it all at once, make sure that you freeze it for maximum freshness by following the directions in this blog post. I generally pack 1 lb. at a time; that will feed about four when reheated.

Corn Fritters

Corn Fritters

With Roasted Garlic Dipping Sauce

Posted on July 11, 2017
Corn Fritters are delicious little cakes of corn filled dough, like a deep fried pancake. They’re synonymous with southern cooking like biscuits and gravy and chicken n’ waffles. With corn fritter day arriving soon, I knew I needed to try this southern treat. Think biscuit, but thinner, and pancake, but not as sweet, and then there’s the grilled corn kernels. Sweet corn, with it’s slightly charred and light flavor is the secret. It takes the biscuit-pancake batter to the next level with a salty sweet combo. The added pop-crunch you get from the crispy outside and tender corn is a textural treat while you eat. Dip these delightful dumplings in a homemade roasted garlic dip and you’re in heaven.

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.

Big Juicy Burgers

Big Juicy Burgers

The Ideal Burger for a Summer BBQ

Posted on July 04, 2017
You’ve probably had some pretty delicious barbecue in the last little while, what with it being “officially” summer now. Though, you haven’t had great barbecue until you’ve devoured some Big Juicy Burgers, and not just any old recipe will do. These burgers were the biggest and juiciest yet! I was feeling lazy after making 8 batches of homemade strawberry jam, so after a long and sweet day, these burgers hit the spot. Make the patties ahead of time and freeze them with some waxed paper in between, or just eat them after letting the meat rest and you won’t be disappointed.

Smoked Sirloin Sandwiches

Smoked Sirloin Sandwiches

with Club House La Grille Southern Style BBQ Seasoning & Montreal Steak Spice

Posted on June 27, 2017
Smoked Sirloin Sandwiches are ideal for a unique 4th of July, or Canada Day main course. They’re easy to make, incredibly flavorful, and definitely not just another burger! (Though we do have some pretty good ones!) These sandwiches are perfect, topped with Spicy Alabama White Sauce, piled high with perfectly tender sliced beef. You don’t need to do much with this recipe once it’s on the grill, especially if you have a Wireless Digital Thermometer like this one. That means you have plenty of time to decorate or relax. When serving, remember to pick a bun with a slightly crusty exterior, and pillowy soft interior. Potato salad and Coleslaw are the sides of choice to go along with this delightful delicacy.

Smoky Plank Bacon

Smoky Plank Bacon

A.K.A. Delicious

Posted on June 22, 2017
This past weekend we celebrated all things fatherly. As a gift, I made my father some homemade Smoky Plank Bacon, because what says “I love you” more than homemade smoky bacon? NOTHING! Seriously, if someone you loved showed up with fresh bacon as you read this, you would be ecstatic! For the sake of making this manageable, I will leave the original measurements as Chef Ted Reader has set them out. But, you can buy a whole pork belly, cure and smoke it for a fraction of what your bacon addiction actually costs – depending on the price of pork at the time. Freeze whatever you don’t use, and pull it out as needed. This Smoky Plank Bacon will keep well if frozen properly (here’show).

Bone Dust

Bone Dust

BBQ Seasoning

Posted on June 22, 2017
Really this is a Ted Reader signature seasoning. If you’re really lucky and see him live at a show like the Cottage Life show, then you can go to his booth and buy some. BUT when you run out and need more, here is the recipe to make it yourself.

I always keep a supply of this on hand. A nice big jar will last for ages, and it is ideal for putting in and on pretty much anything you can imagine.

Father’s Day is coming and your Father deserves something delicious and unique to eat. Make him a Himalayan Salt Seared Steak this year; he will be overjoyed from the delicious flavor. Subtle salt brings out the beefiness of the sirloin steak making for a most tender bite. This will win you uber-points and makes the perfect gift for Dad, much better than a BBQ themed tie for sure!

Grilled Asian Salad

Grilled Asian Salad

Obsess over the dressing

Posted on June 12, 2017

June 16 is National Fruits and Veggies day, so get ready to veg out with this delicious recipe. If you’ve ever been to a Japanese restaurant, they will give you a crisp and fresh salad with this ginger dressing on it. I don’t know why, but I LOVE this dressing, don’t you? That’s what inspired this recipe for Grilled Asian Salad, a vegetarian meal in a bowl that will blow your mind. Fresh grilled veggies with crisp lettuce and cucumbers, topped with a ginger based dressing, peanuts, and some sesame seeds. Who needs meat?
