Homemade Soup

Homemade Soup

with Roasted Carrots and Ginger

Posted on January 11, 2017
Homemade Soup with Roasted Carrots and Ginger is the product of my ever-increasing confidence, apparently, soup isn’t that hard to make. This particular recipe is even easier than … umm… something really easy! Okay, so it’s not as easy as using the can opener and making a can of condensed soup unless you are can opener challenged, or have one of the electric ones that never seems to work. However, this soup recipe is way easier than making our recipe for the Easiest Rotisserie Chicken Ever (and that’s a super easy recipe).

Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

with Ginger Infused Maple Syrup

Posted on January 11, 2017
The best thing about being an adult is that you can eat whatever you want for dinner. The other night, neither of us felt like eating a meal, meat and potatoes, pasta, nothing at all sounded good. You know what did though? Apple Crumble with Ginger Infused Maple Syrup. Fresh apples, sweet maple syrup with spicy ginger, and cinnamon, and top it all off with fresh ice cream for a delicious meal… I mean dessert!

Pfeffernüsse

Pfeffernüsse

German Gingerbread Cookies

Posted on December 21, 2016
I made these cookies to celebrate National Pfeffernüsse day. When I read that there was a day dedicated to Pfeffernüsse, I got thoroughly excited. You see, my cat - whose name is Hubert, is nicknamed Pfeffernüsse. I don’t know how it happened, or when, but there you have it. He’s round and white and brown, much like these cookies, not that I knew what they were until I saw that there was a date dedicated to this uniquely named confection. Pfeffernüsse or German Gingerbread Cookies, are delicious, fragrant, spicy, and sweet. They’re ideal for celebrating the holiday season, when a little extra warmth is always welcome.

Gingerbread

Gingerbread

Make a whole village of cookie people

Posted on December 14, 2016
Gingerbread is an integral part of the holidays, like lights, trees, and hot chocolate. Ever since I started working on this blog, I have wanted to do one thing. Make a Gingerbread Grill. Yes, a Napoleon Grill made of Gingerbread. My husband, a total genius, did the math and plotted out the parts, but in the end, the project was far too ambitious. The grill would have stood well over 24-inches tall! Instead, we opted to go with the more traditional Gingerbread Men, who turned out beautiful, delicious, and festive in their red jumpers.

NOTE* - You will want to use a stand mixer for this recipe unless you are very strong and have a lot of stamina. The dough gets pretty stiff near the end.

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.

Citrus Glazed Pork Roast

Citrus Glazed Pork Roast

With Ginger Carrots

Posted on February 03, 2016
Feeling a little bored with plain old pork roasts, I jazzed things up by adding a little sunshine. Actually I used oranges and lemon pepper, but the effect was the same. This Citrus Glazed Pork Roast With Ginger Carrots tasted like eating sunshine. It completely brightened dinner time and added some much needed zing to mealtime.

Mulled Autumn Sangria is a light and festive version of sangria that you should serve at your next fall party. Its scent reminds people of cool days, brightly colored leaves, and hot beverages in front of the fire. This punch-ish spiced wine drink is perfect for gatherings and definitely gives a big impact when presented.

Spiced Carrot Cake

Spiced Carrot Cake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on October 06, 2015
You can't finish your perfect Thanksgiving meal without dessert, and what better way to usher in autumn than with Spiced Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Icing! Imagine a dense cake, scenting the air with the fragrance of fall, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg. It's moist but not crumbly. It's perfectly topped with thick layers of sweet cream cheese icing. This is a cake to remember and could you believe that I made it on the grill?

 

Baking time varies widely from cake pan to cake pan, so I recommend checking at the 20 to 25 minute mark, and every 5 to 7 minutes afterwards. My cake pan was 6x6x3-inches and it took nearly 45 minutes for the cake to be completely done.

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.

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.
