Jack Daniel’s Smokey Sour Cocktail

Jack Daniel’s Smokey Sour Cocktail

Bacon Drink

Posted on August 26, 2011

Repeat after me… “Everything is better with Bacon!”

Serve this cocktail with Smoked Beef Ribs, and have a taste experience like no other. This citrus-y drink has a smokey finish, will leave you wanting more,
or breakfast, either way, there is bacon involved.

Okay so the husband and I visited my grandparents the other day. My grandfather knows everything there is to know about alcohol. I was telling him all about the blog and the adventures that I was having cooking things and makin’ my own bacon. In fact, I brought some bacon (we make some fresh every couple of weeks now) as a gift. Well doesn’t he have a drink that requires some bacon! I can’t even begin to describe this. I mean I am not a big whiskey person, but this was awesome.

Caramelized Onion and Bacon Pizza

Caramelized Onion and Bacon Pizza

on the Grill

Posted on August 24, 2011

Discussing the iterations of grilled pizza I have posted on the site with a colleague, they were surprised to note that I had not posted this particular recipe yet. To be honest, there is so much food out there that I want to try and to talk about, that I had plain forgotten about it. She was stunned, this was her and my obsession when we were in college.

So here it is, my favorite pizza of college time, in all of its delicious glory.

Tomatoes Arugula and Goat Cheese

Tomatoes Arugula and Goat Cheese

Grilled Pizza

Posted on August 22, 2011
Over the weekend we ended up with a theme for our food. Okay it was more a combination of themes, GreeTalian. Lots of cheese, olive oil and pasta and tomatoes. Whatever, it was good.

I tried flaming goat’s cheese. So good! So immediately found someone who sells cheeses and purchased some, (that was NOT on fire). Then some tomatoes at the farmers market, along with some fresh arugula. Immediately made fresh grilled pizza for lunch.

Grilled Peach and Raspberry Parfait

Grilled Peach and Raspberry Parfait

A giggly treat for summer

Posted on August 19, 2011
It’s summer, the local fruit is fresh and, at the farmer’s market, I find myself drawn to the sweet smelling peaches and raspberries. As a treat for myself, I picked up a basket of each. I was even able to find the cookies in a baked goods stall. This turned out to be a great little treat. Obviously I cut the recipe down, as this would serve six.

Grilled Date Cake

Grilled Date Cake

with Caramel Pilsner Sauce

Posted on August 13, 2011
Similar to Sticky Toffee Pudding of Scotland, this gooey, tooth rotting, sweet treat is awesome. The beer adds a whole new dimension to the caramel sauce flavor, and the dates give a weight to the cakes that make you feel like you had a lot, when you only ate a little.

Eggs and Salmon Haida

A Spa for the Senses

Posted on August 12, 2011
Boys, if you’re in the dog house, make this! Girls if you’re having a Girls’ Spa Day, make this. Rich hollandaise sauce, smokey salmon, and poached egg make something that is decadent, and you can make yourself. I tell you, it sure beats cereal.

Spicy Lamb Kebabs

Spicy Lamb Kebabs

with Pita, Tatziki and Sweet Peppers

Posted on August 08, 2011
There is more to life than beef, chicken and pork. I like to experiment a little in that way, looking for other fantastic meats that I can try. I actually discovered a similar dish to this while eating at the bistro in the King’s Riding Golf Club. Perfectly seasoned lamb with creamy tatziki and thick pita. You will have to make this to know just how good it is. I had to create a recipe that created the delicious fusion of Mediterranean flavors.

Buffalo Steaks

Buffalo Steaks

And Uses for the Leftovers

Posted on August 05, 2011

It is my goal to try something different as often as I can. Now that doesn’t mean I am going to go to an ethnic restaurant and order squid boiled in its own ink and still moving. No I am far to squeamish for that. But I will dip my toe in the different pool at least a couple times a month. So, while down at the farmer’s market, that I try to frequent as often as I can, I saw Buffalo Steaks and asked about them.

Buffalo and Bison meat is low in colesterol and fat, but high in protein. It is very high in flavor and has the same cuts that beef would. Just like beef, it is best served medium–rare, and there is little preparation that is required.

So I purchased some prepared Buffalo Steaks and this is how it went.

Adventures in Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adventures in Chocolate Chip Cookies

on the Grill

Posted on August 02, 2011

You are ever unprepared when it happens. It sneaks up behind you and with terrifying speed, snatches your rational thought right from your head. I am talking about cravings. And the other night, at someone else’s house, I was attacked by one. Cookie! ME WANT COOKIE!

A word of advice, if I may. Never, ever, ever, use a recipe that has been endorsed by people you don’t know when you are being attacked by cravings. We were not at home. We wanted cookies. It was so bad that we were sporting goggly eyes and everything. Being the technologically brilliant person I am, I pulled out the iPhone and looked for a reasonable sounding cookie recipe.

User Submitted Recipe

Posted on July 30, 2011
I’ve been following this blog since April, and think it’s great I can post my own recipes now. I loved a lot of the dishes that have been posted so far and I like to serve them with salad, it’s a nice light side for a grilled dish. I find most salad dressings from store shelfs to be full of stuff I can’t pronounce, so I decided to try making my own. This is what I made.
