Bratwurst Dinner

Bratwurst Dinner

with Beer & Onion Gravy

Posted on August 10, 2016
My husband and I spent nearly a month living with my grandparents while we had some work done on our house. During that time we were very fortunate to have amazing meals prepared for us every night. One of my favorites was Bangers and Mash. I was remembering Bangers and Mash with fondness when I saw National Bratwurst Day is on the 16th of August. Inspired, I procured some brats and cooked them down in German beer. Then I used that beer to make gravy and added some caramelized onions. Thus Bratwurst with Beer & Onion Gravy was born; a German variation on a traditionally British dish. I have to say, it was really good.

Toasted Turkey Sandwich

Toasted Turkey Sandwich

on COBS Bread Cape Seed Loaf

Posted on August 05, 2016
When you get your hands on special ingredients, like COBS Bread’s Cape Seed Loaf, you need to turn it into something truly spectacular. This Toasted Turkey Sandwich took your typical sandwich, and turned it into a work of art. Imagine biting into a lightly toasted sandwich, the crisp outer layer of bread, infused with smokiness from the grill, gives way to the moist and hearty insides of a sesame seed crusted loaf.  This whole grain bread is one that you could enjoy in its own right with maybe a little butter. I took it and toasted it, added some fresh mozzarella, and turned it into a Panini with some leftover roasted turkey, which I grilled to heat it up. It was hot turkey sandwich heaven people!

Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad

Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad

Potato salad with crunch

Posted on August 05, 2016

You know, some of my best recipes come from somehow messing up. Getting the wrong ingredient, not having all of the ingredients, or some other such mishap. That’s how Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad came about. I realized that I only had baking potatoes when my husband had a hankering for potato salad one evening. I figured everything would be alright, so I proceeded as normal. I peeled, sliced, and boiled, but I wound up overcooking the potatoes. To save things, I decided to make them crispy potatoes. After that decision, I wound up undercooking the eggs too! This was fine with me, but definitely not in accordance with the way you make potato salad. As I see these ingredients coming together I decided to roll with it. What’s better with eggs than bacon? I was also using baking potatoes, so under all that crunchy outside was a light and fluffy inside, another perfect place to put bacon. When all was said and done, it was like eating forkfuls of baked potato and breakfast wrapped into one, delicious, summery, side dish. It was amazing.

Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast

Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast

with White Nectarines

Posted on August 05, 2016

In the height of summer I am always looking for ways to take my favorite savory dishes and make them feel more seasonal. Sweet, once again, sends pork to a new level of flavor heaven in this recipe This Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast with White Nectarines takes the spirit of summer and infuses it into an exquisite roast. The best part about this whole thing was that I set the marinade, which looks so pretty, and left for the day to help a friend move. When I came home, I just threw the pork onto a preheated grill for 45 minutes and dinner was pretty much ready.

Homemade Lasagna

Homemade Lasagna

Homemade Lasagna With Meat and Three Cheeses

Posted on July 27, 2016
My favorite meal to share with my husband’s family is his mother’s lasagna. It is a fond childhood memory. I remember my own mother making it years ago too.  As it happens to be National Lasagna Day, I decided to pay homage to our fond childhood memories, and made my own Homemade Lasagna With Meat and Three Cheeses. I started with my Mother-in-Law's recipe, then I put a bit of a grilled spin on it, but I think you’ll like the results as much as we did.

Hassleback Style Garlic Bread

Hassleback Style Garlic Bread

On COBS Bread Sunflower Flax Sourdough

Posted on July 27, 2016
There is nothing better than a loaf of fresh bread. Well…. Okay garlic bread made from a loaf of fresh bread could tie for the top spot of nothing-better-ness. That’s why I made Hassleback Style Garlic Bread On COBS Bread Sunflower Flax Sourdough. The bread was super fresh and smelled soooo good! It was all I could do not to go all “my precious” on it. I did wind up sharing the bread with other people at dinner, much to my chagrin. Though, they did enjoy it, so I guess that makes up for having to share.

Strawberry Stuffed Brownies

Strawberry Stuffed Brownies

in Mini Cast Iron Skillets

Posted on July 27, 2016
I may be on some sort of brownie kick. Does two brownie recipes in 3 months constitute a kick? Anyway, I made these Strawberry Stuffed Brownies in Mini Cast Iron Skillets because I had just made fresh strawberry jam. Somehow this very precise jam recipe made extra on our last batch and we ran out of jars. I just had to use it for something super special, my homemade strawberry jam deserves it. So what goes better with strawberries than chocolate? NOTHING!

Sesame Chicken

Sesame Chicken

in the Napoleon Stainless Steel Wok

Posted on July 20, 2016
Sesame Chicken in the Napoleon Stainless Steel Wok is easy and faster than ordering takeout. Sesame Chicken is my favorite dish to order when we get Chinese Food, you can imagine my desire to find a perfect copy that I could make at home. This one is great, the right taste, without deep-frying the chicken bits; just stir fry them instead, which definitely makes the dish a little lighter. I definitely make this once a week for dinner. After tasting it, I think you will too.

Soy and Honey Marinated Duck

Soy and Honey Marinated Duck

with Broccoli Fried Rice

Posted on July 20, 2016
Duck is savory and definitely different. It pairs beautifully with aromatics like thyme and sage. Duck can just as easily go with a delightful and sweet maple-butter. However, in search of something a little different, I decided to make Soy and Honey Marinated Duck with Broccoli Fried Rice. These duck breasts are marinated in soy, honey, sesame oil, and sake, then grilled to a perfect medium rare and served atop a bed of fresh fried rice, chock full of veggies. This delicious dish will be a fan favorite as soon as you serve it.

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.
