Smoky Ribs

Smoky Ribs

With Dr. Pepper & Chilli Sauce

Posted on November 18, 2015
I have had a heck of a time finding ribs this summer season, but fall came knocking and suddenly there are ribs on sale almost every week! Finally ribs! Immediately I bought a few. I did the rub thing, but wanted a little something different this time around. Although to be honest the Maple Bacon Ribs are still my biggest request and absolute favorite. So I soaked some apple wood chips in Angry Orchard Cider, then smoked the ribs until tender. Then I made a spicy sweet sauce from Cattle BoyZ Sweet Chilli Sauce and oddly enough, Dr. Pepper. What I ended up with was Smoky Ribs With Dr. Pepper & Chilli Sauce, and they were awesome.

 Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes

Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes

You don't need money to be this loaded

Posted on November 17, 2015
Imagine having the most delicious baked potato, but instead of in the skin, it's in a dish, just mashed potatoes. I don't think I am describing this well. These Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes are amazing. Loaded with all of the flavor of a baked potato, but in a gravy holding, mouth watering, soft and delicious package. I baked these potatoes with the turkey over charcoal, then mashed them with all of the delightful fillings you would put on a baked potato.

Bruschetta Pizza

Bruschetta Pizza

Two of the best foods become one

Posted on November 10, 2015
Bruschetta Pizza is a marriage of two supremely delicious foods. Bruschetta topped with roasted tomatoes, onions, garlic and basil, paired with the portable, gooey, melty heaven that is pizza; forming what was probably the best thing we’ve eaten in a week!I say this because we eat some pretty awesome stuff as Chez Sizzle. I mean, have you READ this blog?


Now this recipe wasn't all sunshine and roses. I am sure that you noticed that the pizza went from round and lovely in the first couple of photos,  to a squared-off-ish shape, in the other photos. Well, I kind of, maybe, accidentally, dumped the first pizza in the sink. I would love to tell you it was some incredible story involving ninja pirates, but no. It was my own klutziness that lead to that poor pizza's downfall. Our back up was very tasty indeed, though. The moral here is make this pizza, but don't accidentally toss it in the sink.

Tomato Risotto

Tomato Risotto

With Feta And Grilled Chicken

Posted on November 10, 2015
Tomato Risotto With Feta And Grilled Chicken was a bit of an accident. Well, not accident but more of an "oh no, we're out of ___ what do we cook?" kind of thing. So there I was - having pulled out chicken for dinner without thinking about it. When I went to cook that evening I realized that I didn't have the ingredients to make any Sesame Chicken, and really wasn't feeling like slapping some BBQ sauce on the chicken and calling it a day. But I had some leftover rice, and a basket of cherry tomatoes...where did those come from? Anywho, after a little digging, I found a few more random things that would go well together, and suddenly dinner happened. It was delightful!

Cider Brined Pork

Cider Brined Pork

With Cider Sauce

Posted on November 04, 2015
I was going to throw my pork tenderloin into the crock pot and have some Slow Cooked Sake Pork. However my loving husband wrapped the loin straight instead of curled around itself and it wouldn't fit into the crock pot! Needless to say we had something else for dinner that night, but I did come up with a nifty recipe to have the next night! 

Like I mentioned in my Cider Donut recipe, we're obsessed with Angry Orchard Cider right now. So while rifling about in the fridge for something I could do to my tenderloin to make it tastier, my eyes alighted on the Angry Orchard Cider I had. Thus Cider Brined Pork was devised.

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

With Maple Syrup & Cider

Posted on November 03, 2015
I made these Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples after seeing a photo online. That's how it happens sometimes. I just had this image in my head and was all about making these! I started with the most gigantic apples I have ever seen. These Honey Crisp Apples - yes the ones from the Maple Walnut Apple Crisp recipe - were perfect for this. They were ginormous! Massive. Did I mention they were big?  Then I grabbed some sausage. It couldn't be just any sausage though, it had to be the right amounts of sweet and savory, something that would pair prettily with the apple and other sweet flavors. In the end I had these gigantic apple bombs that were aromatic and delectable. A perfect balance. Oh and they're gluten free too.

Apple Cider Donuts

Apple Cider Donuts

With Cinnamon Sugar Dust

Posted on November 03, 2015
National Donut day is coming fast, and you can't celebrate without having donuts. As we're currently obsessed with Angry Orchard Apple Cider, Apple Cider Donuts seemed like the next, perfectly logical step. Like my first attempt at Homemade Donuts, I made these for us, and a couple friends, this time, there was only one left. 

These donuts are slightly cakey, but fried and crunchy on the outside with a light fluffy interior that reminds me of those tiny donuts that you get in the mall. You know the ones. I tossed them in a cinnamon and sugar mixture, mostly because I ran out of time to do a glaze, but it worked out really well, giving a little extra texture to these delicious donuts.

Rustic Slow Roast Beef

Rustic Slow Roast Beef

Succulent and savory

Posted on October 27, 2015
To be honest, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this recipe. It was a mystery cut of beef that was wrapped and had been lurking in the freezer for a while. When it was finished I wouldn't have been surprised to find either a succulent roast, or some sort of pulled beef-ness. We ended up with an amazing Rustic Slow Roast Beef dinner, cooked to a perfect medium rare. I have chills just thinking about when I sliced this mystery meat. In the end this cut was nearly as tender as a tenderloin, but not quite. Due to the low and slow nature of the recipe, I recommend using charcoal.

Grilled Haddock

Grilled Haddock

With Spicy Rice

Posted on October 21, 2015
One evening the husband and I were driving through a shopping center, and we saw that there was a Nando's going in. He waxed poetic about their rice and how amazing it was. I knew that I needed to find a way to make it for him. If you're not familiar, Piri-Piri is the name of the game with Nando's dishes. So I set about gathering the spices that would bring that kind of flavor. That is how the recipe for Grilled Haddock With Spicy Rice was born. 

This turned out a little warmer than I had intended, but the scent was just amazing. A huge plate of veggie laden rice, topped with a perfectly grilled haddock fillet that is smothered in garlic, butter and more piri-piri spice. The husband and I were in flavor heaven. Try this and you will be too.

Autumn Baked Brie

Autumn Baked Brie

With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries

Posted on October 15, 2015
Autumn Baked Brie With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries is a cheesy, gooey, delight. Feel's kind of high brow, and can be served as an appetizer with wine, or as a dessert, with wine. I guess you don't have to serve it with wine, but yeah. The wheel was a buffalo brie from Prince Edward County. It wasn't strong like brie cheese tends to be, but mild and salty, pairing beautifully with the sweetness of the apples and brown sugar, and the tartness of the cranberries.
