Crispy Heirloom Potatoes

Crispy Heirloom Potatoes

With Thyme & Chives

Posted on October 27, 2015
Crispy Heirloom Potatoes are crunchy on the outside and almost creamy, and definitely fluffy on the inside. If you're a lover of all things potato, then these are definitely worth a try. They went perfectly with my Rustic Slow Roast Beef, but will make an awesome side dish to just about any meal you make.

How To Make Hot Italian Sausage

How To Make Hot Italian Sausage

Making it yourself is easy and fun!

Posted on September 01, 2015
This recipe is all about How To Make Hot Italian Sausage. Actually wait. I should back up. I have been waiting for nearly a year to finally do this. Make my own sausage. I initially set out to make something a little more mild when it came to a sausage, so the flavor that we ended up with was a lot spicier than intended, but it's ALL flavor, not just heat for heat's sake. I started with research. I wanted to make something actually easy, and needed to source out good ingredients. Then I needed to make sure that I had the spices that would create the flavors we were looking for. And finally we had to just do it. 

I think the biggest thing that holds people up is the casing, and stuffing. Casings are either synthetic or animal based. They don't smell great, and they're really gross. But they're an essential part of the process. I recommend going to your local butcher (The Butcher Shop Barrie is ours) and talking to them about casings, which ones they use and if they have any tips and tricks. You will get a lot of bang for your buck that way too. We got enough to make quadruple of what this recipe makes! Now for the pork. You can use a Boston butt, and add pork fat, or ask about pork trimmings. It's a bag full of random stuff, literally. But it will also give you a lot to work with, which is good, and possibly less expensive than buying a whole pork shoulder for this project.

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

With Tahini Sauce

Posted on August 25, 2015
The success of the Chicken Shawarma recipe made me realize how delicious Shawarma can be. I wanted to make it again, but I also wanted to make a meal that was just a little different too. Lebanese Beef Shawarma With Tahini Sauce fit the bill exactly, using some traditional spice combinations you can take beef to a whole new level. The only thing we didn't have was the fries to go in the pita. But man was this  ever some good food. 

Actually, having just moved into our new home, my husband and I have had some issues with appliances and unfinished stuff (new build), so having nowhere to put our dishes for the most part left us in kind of a pickle. A pickle that is solved by making food that is portable. I know, all my pretty dishes seem to be making it onto the site okay, and I guess I could use paper plates and what not, but there's no fun in that! I want to make the food work for me! So we did.

How To Grill Corn On The Cob

How To Grill Corn On The Cob

In The Husk

Posted on August 10, 2015
So I've never done this, and my kitchen wasn't quite ready when we moved in. So we didn't exactly have a stove to even boil a pot of water. I needed another way to cook the side dish for dinner, my Bacon Wrapped Fillet Mignon, How To Grill Corn On The Cob was the first thing I searched online. I mean sure I could do the foil wrapped corn (Recipe Club August 2014), but I didn't want to cover the taste of the sweetest sweet corn, which would pair beautifully with the beef and bacon. So this is what you do:

Asian Beef Tenderloin

Asian Beef Tenderloin

With Tempura Onions And Gyoza Sauce

Posted on August 05, 2015
This is the recipe for my first ever video recipe. Asian Beef Tenderloin With Tempura Onions And Gyoza Sauce, it's elegant, yet easy. And boy does it taste good too. The beef nearly melts in your mouth, and the tartness from the sauce makes it sing. The Tempura Onions are a nice crunchy offset to the tender beef. All in all a very successful meal. You need to try it yourself. Video equipment and crew not required.

Salmon Teriyaki

Salmon Teriyaki

On The Grill

Posted on August 05, 2015
I need to eat more seafood. That's a fact. Salmon is still my favorite fish. It's meaty and hearty, fills you up. Being in a mood for Japanese one night, I decided to make Salmon Teriyaki On The Grill. It turned out fantastic. Paired with Vegetable Tempura, we had a meal made in grilling heaven.

Vegetable Tempura On The Grill

Vegetable Tempura On The Grill

With Fresh Dipping Sauce

Posted on August 05, 2015
After making tempura battered onion rings for the Asian Tenderloin recipe, I needed to find out what else I could tempura-ize. Vegetable Tempura On The Grill was easier than you would think and super fun to serve with dinner. We ate this with Salmon Teriyaki for a complete meal and it was an amazing Asian themed dinner off the grill.

Red Velvet Cheesecake

Red Velvet Cheesecake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on July 28, 2015
I don't need a reason to have cheesecake. I could have cheesecake every day, no matter what. That's probably why there are more than ten recipes for cheesecake, or cheesecake related desserts on this blog. Red Velvet Cheesecake With Cream Cheese Icing seemed like the next logical step in cheesecake recipe making. I had two reasons to make this. One, it's National Cheesecake Day, and you HAVE to have cheesecake on National Cheesecake Day, and two, I wanted to make something special for a friend who really helped us out. In both I believe that I've succeeded because dang! This cheesecake was amazing.

Honey Garlic Sausage Stuffed Pork Chops

Honey Garlic Sausage Stuffed Pork Chops

With Cattle BoyZ Chipotle Maple Bacon Sauce

Posted on July 14, 2015
Honey Garlic Sausage Stuffed Pork Chops With Cattle BoyZ Chipotle Maple Bacon Sauce, not only is it a very delicious mouthfull, it's also hard to say three times fast. (I totally dare you) 

So I asked myself, what would make these boring old pork chops taste even better. Three things came to mind. Sweet flavors like maple and apple, garlic, and more pork! So I decided to go with all three, 'cause how could that possibly go wrong? I can tell you now that it really didn't. And the best part about this recipe? Unless you have a gaggle of pork chops, (or would it be a herd?), you are going to have leftover sausage to make meatballs!

Goat Cheese Pasta

Goat Cheese Pasta

With Bacon And Grilled Asparagus

Posted on July 07, 2015
Left to my own devices one evening, I had nothing planned for dinner,  and nothing but scraps in the fridge. It sounds like I never have any groceries, I swear I do! Anyway, that is where this all started. Goat Cheese Pasta With Bacon And Grilled Asparagus is a conglomeration of my craving that evening, and what I happened to have left over after making Stuffed Bison Burgers and Goat Cheese Vanilla Ice Cream. I love grilled asparagus, and I love bacon, so adding the two of them to a creamy pasta sauce was a no brainer. I hope you enjoy this easy and pretty quick gourmet meal as much as I did.
