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.

Savory Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Savory Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Super easy, better than canned

Posted on November 20, 2015
You can't have roasted turkey without Savory Homemade Cranberry Sauce. But don't just pop open a can and let that gelatinous stuff ooze out! Seriously, a bag of fresh cranberries is far less expensive, and with less than seven ingredients you will have a little something that your guests will swoon over. Best part? It's gluten free too!

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.

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.

Blackened Catfish

Blackened Catfish

All that is blackened is not burnt

Posted on June 03, 2015
June is National Soul Food Month, so I did some research into what foods were considered to be Soul Food. Blackened Catfish was very close to the top of the list, and I definitely thought "I could grill that". And grill I did! Buttery and flavorful, you would be surprised, blackened is not burned, or at least not burnt tasting. And we paired it with rice and lemon for a very awesome meal. Catfish, for those like me, who don't really do the seafood thing, is definitely a fishy flavored fish but it's not overpowering. I quite liked it. Not only that, but this recipe turned out to be super fast and pretty darn easy to make too!

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.

Grilled Swordfish Kebabs

Grilled Swordfish Kebabs

Fresh ingredients make the difference here

Posted on September 09, 2014

I needed something to make for dinner one night. I was perusing the seafood isle at my local grocer while waiting in line for the deli attendant when I saw a gigantic swordfish steak sitting there pretty as you please. The skin was still on it, smooth and shiny, a dark green-ish-black-y-blue, and the colour was bright. It looked kinda good. The price was right too. So I snagged that lonely steak and capered home with my find.
