Chicken Mole

Chicken Mole

On The Grill

Posted on May 02, 2017
This year for Cinco De Mayo, I wanted to grill up something a little more authentic than the usual enchiladas and tacos. Chicken Mole On The Grill is spicy, thick, and definitely different. The dried pepper based sauce is full of chocolate, tomato, and chicken stock, making for a delicious addition to any Cinco De Menu

Homemade Pretzel Bites

Homemade Pretzel Bites

with Jalapeño Cheese Beer Dip

Posted on January 31, 2017
Pretzels and dip are a mainstay when it comes to any gathering. However, pretzels are usually dry and salty and no one really likes them. Not this time, though Homemade Pretzel Bites with Jalapeño Cheese Beer Dip are made just for each other. The pretzels are soft and flavorful; the dip is ooey-gooey amazingness. Together they are a flavor blast perfect for watching a championship match, nibbling while dancing awkwardly at a party, or just snacking on because you love to cook and love bread and cheese.

Mexican Style Brownies

Mexican Style Brownies

with Dark Chocolate and Chillies

Posted on August 16, 2016
This is our third brownie recipe in 3 months; that definitely constitutes a brownie kick. Who can resist these dense bars of chocolaty goodness? I, for one, can’t. Neither can my friends who requested another batch of brownies for our Sunday night gathering.  These Mexican Style Brownies with Dark Chocolate and Chillies are just the thing for National Hot and Spicy Day on August 19th. Thick and dense chocolate brownies, balanced with out with the right amount of sweetness, they sneak up and bite your tongue with a warmth that is as unexpected as it is pleasant.

Grill Roasted Extra Thick Pork Chops

Grill Roasted Extra Thick Pork Chops

With La Grille Roasted Garlic & Peppers Rub

Posted on February 25, 2016
You all know how much I love garlic. I love it as much as I love chocolate and cheesecake. When I got the chance to try a wet rub chock full of garlic, I just leapt at the chance. Grill Roasted Extra Thick Pork Chops With La Grille Roasted Garlic & Peppers Rub is succulent, savory, and oh so tasty! The rub melted into the meat creating this penetrating flavor full of garlic. Yum! I used a roasting technique, instead of a fast sear and then indirect heat to finish it off. That is because I didn’t want to burn anything with unpredictable caramelization of the rub. Our patience paid off though, because after resting, this meal was unbelievable.

Grilled Chicken Chimichangas

Grilled Chicken Chimichangas

Because Yummy!

Posted on February 19, 2016
I was asked to cook chimichangas for a group of friends in celebration of a certain movie finally coming out. Naturally I had to find a way to incorporate the grill into this recipe, then document the entire process. So I wound up making Grilled Chicken Chimichangas and I can’t believe the amazing flavor we were able to pack into these little packets of amazingness.

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!

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.)

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.

Grilled Duck Breast Curry

Grilled Duck Breast Curry

Crispy Skin, Medium Rare, Spicy Curry Veggies

Posted on November 12, 2014

I have been meaning to try Curry for a long time. A "proper" curry, I say proper in quotation marks, because I am sure that some legitimate, professional, curry chef is rolling their eyes and shaking their head at me right now... But anyway. A friend of mine was always making curry and suggested I try it. I finally got around to it. So rich and creamy, slightly spicy and marvellously tasty. I ended up making Grilled Duck Breast Curry 3 nights in a row, and having the leftovers for lunch at work every day.

Ground Sirloin Tacos

Ground Sirloin Tacos

Grind your own meat for freshness

Posted on September 03, 2014

I have been lucky enough to get my own meat grinder. With it I decided to grind our own beef for tacos. Ground Sirloin Tacos are delicious, they're fresh and you know exactly what's in them. You can grind in your favorite flavourings, like garlic, onions and even the taco seasoning itself, to achieve maximum awesome. These tacos were amazing. I added the homemade taco seasoning, garlic, onions, and peppers, and ground it right into the meat itself before grilling. Just remember to grind from frozen, the meat fat gets caught in the grind wheel and makes an awful mess.
