Goat Cheese Risotto

Goat Cheese Risotto

With Roasted Red Peppers

Posted on December 08, 2016
I wanted to make a meatless meal that was rich and satisfying. I was at a loss, searching until I saw a title - Goat Cheese Risotto and my search was over. I just went from there, adding roasted red peppers, a couple kinds of cheese, peas, and fresh herbs until I had a filling dish that would be suitable for both a side dish and a full meal. In the end, this meal was so much better than I could have imagined.

Skirlie

Skirlie

Savory Scottish Oatmeal

Posted on October 21, 2016
While in Scotland I tried loads of different and wonderful foods including haggis, black pudding, white pudding, mealies and Skirlie. My favorite out of all of them was Skirlie, a Savory Scottish Oatmeal side dish that is usually served with beef – particularily mince and tatties, (think shepherd’s pie). This is probably due to the fact that one of the main ingredients for this recipe is suet, the raw hard fat found on beef and mutton. Don’t let that strange ingredient phase you. Skirlie is incredible. It’s fragrant, and intensely satisfying!

Not fishy, just delish-y!

Salmon Casserole. I know you’re thinking that something’s fishy here, but I can assure you that this easy dinner is super delicious. This meal is hot and comforting. Serve it family style at the table with a selection of seasonable vegetables, or a hearty salad.

Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers

Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers

Sweet and Crunchy

Posted on January 13, 2016
Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers, there's a story behind this one. I have been a very lucky person. When I was younger, my father took me to Europe. We stayed in Paris for a couple of days before going to Euro Disney and then London via the Chunnel. While in Paris, we ate at a Planet Hollywood. I was horrified to see the chicken fingers, my go to meal was breaded with Captain Crunch, my all time favorite cereal. Back then I was picky. I have learned much since then. Ever since then, I have had that thought pop into my head periodically. Could I? Should I? Well I finally did it. I finally had enough bravery to give it a try. This recipe, these Chicken Fingers... Are. Just. Amazing.

Pulled Pork Tacos

Pulled Pork Tacos

You're having soft tacos later

Posted on December 15, 2015
Pulled Pork Tacos happened when I realized that we didn't have any beef for Taco Tuesday. OH the humanity! Whatever shall we do?! Yep! That's right! Pull that pulled pork out of the freezer and load it up with taco seasoning, fried peppers and onions. Then toss that into soft taco shells and load them with all of the fixin's for a fast weeknight dinner that will have them asking for Taco Tuesday on Wednesday and Thursday too!

Steak Diane

Steak Diane

With A Twist

Posted on December 10, 2015
Steak Diane is a  decadent little meal that is supremely enjoyable. The steak is tender and flavorful, the sauce is amazing, (But anything that is made with whisky and heavy cream would be right?), and everything else on the plate just makes it that much more delightful. I actually made this because I had nothing else in the house for food. I cook a lot and need groceries a lot, it's a thing. Anyway, I just happened to have some beef tenderloin, the ends that were trimmed from the Beef Wellington Recipe, the other ingredients... not so much, but it sure was delicious.

Sourdough Bacon Stuffing

Sourdough Bacon Stuffing

Perfect for turkey dinners

Posted on November 20, 2015
Sourdough Bacon Stuffing is the only thing in this year's Thanksgiving dinner that contained gluten. I made it with fresh sourdough bread, and I had bacon out to make the Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes, so I used the leftovers in this recipe. 

 

I never stuff the bird when I use stuffing. There are a lot of factors that lead to that decision. Mostly I don't feel that I get a proper cook out of a roasted bird. There is risk of contamination of the stuffing from uncooked drippings, and most importantly, you don't get loads of crunchy bits, leading to fights among guests and family over the coveted crispy stuffing. Feel free to stuff your turkey, or chicken, or not. But whatever you do, enjoy the stuffing.

Tahini Marinated Pork Chops

Tahini Marinated Pork Chops

On a bed of rice

Posted on October 01, 2015
I had these amazing thick pork chops and didn't know what to do with them. Apparently we get bored easily in the Sizzle household, because my husband was pretty "meh" about these too. But suddenly, our stomachs growled and said - Tahini Marinated Pork Chops! Okay, that didn't really happen exactly like that, but you get the idea. We suddenly had a craving for something a little bit international.

Chicken Flautas

Chicken Flautas

With Avocado Cream

Posted on August 18, 2015
Chicken Flautas With Avocado Cream are a Mexican dish that came out of nowhere. I hadn't heard of them until a coworker asked me if I had had one before. Nope, but they sound absolutely delicious! I must make some! So I did. Basically it's a fried chicken stuffed soft taco-burrito-thingy. They're sometimes called/confused with toquitos, which are very similar, but Flautas are larger and longer. So here is my take on the Chicken Flauta. (By the way they're really delicious.)

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Posted on August 18, 2015
I wanted to make something special for my friend who came to visit our house. So we went to the farmer's market downtown for some special food. We found bison at one booth, and all of the fresh produce at the others. I even got a basket of peaches that are totally blowing my mind right now. For dinner we made Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes. Everything came from the farmer's market. It was glorious.
