Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing

Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing

And Feta, Raisins, and Cranberries

Posted on April 18, 2017
I’ll be honest, this recipe happened for two reasons. One, I happened to immolate the roasted beet and asparagus side dish that I was going to serve with my Espresso Rubbed Prime Rib. Two, I went WAYYYYY overboard when making some carrot cake for dessert. Luckily that meant that I had loads of perfectly shredded carrots for a Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing, Feta, Raisins, and Cranberries, which turned out to be a delicious side dish.

Lemon & Blueberry Cake

Lemon & Blueberry Cake

A Fresh & Spring-y Dessert

Posted on April 12, 2017
This Easter season, try a light and fresh Lemon & Blueberry Cake for dessert. This confection tastes as good as it looks, and boy does it ever look good! The light lemony flavor of the cake pairs perfectly with the tart blueberries. The cream cheese icing just makes it all even better. I served this to finish off a beautiful family dinner. Everyone made room for this cake after eating their fill of dinner - and whomever you serve this too, will as well. This cake is so ideal for the season; it even smells like spring.

Red Wine Chocolate Cake

Red Wine Chocolate Cake

with Wine Soaked Berries, Red Wine Ganache, and Creamy Frosting

Posted on March 07, 2017
Red Wine Chocolate Cake with Wine Soaked Berries, Red Wine Ganache, and Creamy Frosting is a mouthful, both to say and to eat. This double layer cake is rich with a light frosting to compliment the dark flavors. This cake was at once dense and deep, while light and tart, the cream frosting tying everything together nicely. I made this recipe gluten free so that a friend could enjoy it with us, and you couldn’t even tell that it was. If you want to celebrate spring, add this recipe to your menu, you won’t be disappointed.

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).

Homemade Hot Sauce

Homemade Hot Sauce

With Roasted Garlic & Cayenne

Posted on January 04, 2017
It’s become a tradition to make hot sauce as a holiday gift for friends, and my Homemade Hot Sauce With Roasted Garlic & Cayenne was a huge success again this year. This sauce isn’t overly vinegary, instead relying on the intense cayenne pepper for punch. Easily adjust the heat of this recipe by subtracting hot peppers and adding sweet bell peppers, which also bulk up the sauce without watering it down. The roasted garlic and blistered skin of the peppers add a hint of smoke to the finish, giving this hot sauce flavor along with the heat.

Smoked Salmon

Smoked Salmon

Cold Smoked on a Gas Grill

Posted on November 09, 2016
The day I received my Apollo Water Smoker from Napoleon was the day that my grandmother asked me to make Smoked Salmon for her. Generally for smoking you want to keep the grill or smoker between the temperatures of 200°F and 275°F, perfect for ribs and pulled pork. For Smoked Salmon, you need a colder temperature of 140°F or so. The idea is that you’re not cooking the fish but using the smoke to preserve and flavor it. I’ve never been able to keep the smoker lower than 200°F when using charcoal. But then I had a brainwave. What if I used my Prestige™ PRO500 instead?  One burner on super low with a PRO Stainless Steel Smoker Tube full of chips would fill the grill with delicious smoke and keep the temperature low. Well guess what? Success! Delicious, delicious, fishy, success!

Roast Your Own Coffee At Home

Posted on September 13, 2016
In preparation for National Coffee Day on September 29th, I used my grill to smoke, and roast some green-unroasted coffee beans. Yes, you too can make your own Smoked Coffee using a grill! It was a little nerve wracking at first, but once I got everything moving, it turned out to be super easy.

National S’mores Day occurs every 10th of August and this year we wanted to take part by making something extra special! Planked S’mores with Homemade Marshmallows! Homemade marshmallows are rich, fun, and surprisingly easy to make. Turning them into s’mores seemed like the logical next step. Making S’mores on the grill, even more so. Dazzle your friends, family, and guests with these sweet treats. It takes about 45 minutes to make the marshmallows themselves; the trick is having the patience to let them set. Once set, it’s the work of a moment to get these beauties grilling for an amazing dessert of ultra homemade S’mores.
