Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing

Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing

Perfect On Spinach Salad

Posted on May 06, 2015
I prepared Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing to go with my Lamb Sliders for Mother's Day luncheon and it paired perfectly. Lamb has an earthy flavor that needs to be lightened up with colorful and bright flavors meaning a fresh salad is perfect, and Creamy Onion Poppyseed Dressing sticks to that salad's bones when you use it.  It's thick, and has all the makings of a perfect dressing. The tang, the sweet and onions.

Grilled Chicken Enchiladas

Cinco De Mayo is just around the corner. If you plan on celebrating, you have to serve food. These Grilled Chicken Enchiladas With Homemade Enchilada Sauce And Refried Beans are spectacular. They don't look like much, but flavor wise? Muy Bueno! So many different layers of texture and taste wrapped into one tortilla! It's like Cinco De Mayo on your tongue. Wait! It IS Cinco De Mayo! 

Now I opted to make everything (except the tortillas) fresh, but you certainly don't have to. And you can definitely taste the quality and difference. I also suggest that you double the recipe for the beans, they're pretty good, and like that Thai Chili Guacamole, which I highly recommend you make and have on hand for this meal, you will want to put that stuff in/on everything.

Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas

Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas

Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas. I guess that sounds really weird. I mean it does sound really weird. But they're super strangely yummy. My first foray into the land of tequila has resulted in success. This slushy drink, was inspired by a title that I read somewhere, though I may have read like two different recipes and conglomerated them into one. I do that a lot. Mother has a dusting mitt in her car, I totally thought it read disgusting mint. So you can see where this went. Where was I? Oh right. Grilled Jalapeño Margaritas. After slaving toiling joyously in front of a grill all day, something cold and fun is definitely in order. Not to mention it's totally the traditional drink of Cinco De Mayo - I think?

Margarita Curd Cheesecake

Margarita Curd Cheesecake

Perfectly Balanced Sweet And Tangy

Posted on April 29, 2015
Part of celebrating Cinco De Mayo is having a fantastic dessert to go with your amazing meal. I was going to do some sort of "Mexican" food like a quesadila or chimichanga filled with fruit and chocolate, but I had all these limes and tequila, and let's face it, you know my opinion on cheesecake. So I made Margarita Curd Cheesecake instead. First of all I was quite inspired by a dessert I taste tested at Costco a few weeks back and fully intended on recreating - a lemon curd, crumble topped cheesecake pie, and with Cinco De Mayo around the corner too, I had all the stuff to make a rockin' lime curd. Well I added tequila and things got a little out of hand, and into my mouth. You have to make this delicious, creamy dessert.

Lemon Rosemary Chicken

Lemon Rosemary Chicken

With Honey Basil Carrots

I made Easter Dinner last week so that you were good and prepared. But it also happened to be Passover on April the 3rd of 2015. As a food blogger, I feel that it's my duty to make food that represents all people and cultures, and pay respect to the food they eat and why it's eaten. I made this Lemon Rosemary Chicken With Honey Basil Roast Carrots for Passover, and hopefully I did this right. 

 

Now I was supposed to make a roasted chicken for this meal, however when I opened the packaging, I discovered that my beautiful, properly prepared, kosher, organic, chicken had gone rancid! Such as the case, we had to improvise. Lucky for us, there were some chicken breasts in the freezer. I can't guarantee that they were prepared in the proper fashion, but we made do with what we had. The rest of the meal I was careful. I did not mix dairy with meat at all, nor did I incorporate flour or leavening agents into the meal. So all in all, aside from the chicken and my camera battery dying, I believe this was a success.

Crispy Potato Galette

Crispy Potato Galette

Your Potatoes Will Never Be The Same

Posted on April 07, 2015
Crispy Potato Galette is like crunchy potato heaven. A delicious pie of crispy potatoes. It's like nothing I have ever had. And I think this may be the only way I prepare potatoes forevermore. Can you tell I enjoyed it? Are you sure? Yes, I thought that it was strange that this recipe is named like a razor, but the only thing this recipe is cutting is your preconceptions of what a potato side dish could be. I took it a little easy on the flavors, opting for salt and pepper and a little fresh rosemary basically, and what we got in return was pure awesome. Go ahead, try this for yourself! Right now! I mean it! I say that a lot don't I? What can I say? I love food.

Creamy, Crunchy Scalloped Potatoes

Creamy, Crunchy Scalloped Potatoes

Creamy, Crunchy Scalloped Potatoes

Posted on March 31, 2015
Creamy, Crunchy Scalloped Potatoes feature the best of both worlds when it comes to texture. Then there's the flavor. You won't get this kind of awesome from a box. No sir! It may take a little prep work but this side dish is completely worth the added labor. Although, getting into that box of "scalloped potatoes" that's been in your pantry for who knows how long is really a lot of work. This recipe is far easier than trying to stick your thumb through that "perforated" top. And when you can't do that you resort to using a knife, which works, but you stab the packet with the flavor powder in it. The powder goes everywhere and you have the dog licking at the floor and you haven't even gotten to the cooking part yet. Naw, go the route of home made and save yourself the hassle. Plus you get all the flavor!

Cadbury Cream Egg Brownies. What more is there to say about that? Okay well the fact that they're gooey and rich, featuring the epitome of the coveted easter candies to make something that is already one of the best things on earth just that much better. Imagine yourself biting into a dense, fudgy brownie and your teeth sink through a layer of milk chocolate that reveals a hidden gem of creamy egg middle-ness that drips onto your chin!  ...I may be a little passionate about these brownies. Which, I should mention, are perfect for easter dessert.

Wilted Kale Salad

Wilted Kale Salad

With Grilled Vegetables And Homemade Dressing

Posted on March 25, 2015
I have now taught my first grilling class. I needed to prepare a program that covered as many different ways to grill in one lesson. One thing though, it had to be vegetarian. That's where Wilted Kale Salad With Grilled Vegetables And Homemade Dressing came in. Actually a bunch of things crossed my mind, but the main thing was that I wanted to come up with four different meals that incorporated the same or similar ingredients. After class I asked which was their favorite. This Wilted Kale Salad With Grilled Vegetables And Homemade Dressing was number one on the list.

Grilled Vegetable Quesadilla

With Homemade Guacamole

Posted on March 24, 2015
I am a self proclaimed meatatarian. I won't go out of my way to eat a vegetarian meal. But I was asked to teach a class, the one rule was that it had to be vegetarian. Well, after the Wilted Kale Salad With Grilled Vegetables, the Quinoa And Grilled Vegetable Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, and Grilled Wraps Stuffed With Veggies And Quinoa, we had some leftovers. These Grilled Vegetable Quesadilla With Homemade Guacamole are the result of creatively using what's left for an incredible and delicious meal.
