As House Stark is fond of saying, “Winter is Coming”. To prepare for the long months of cold temperatures we decided to make some Homemade Pickles With Garlic & Dill.

The perfect way to preserve the produce you grew over the summer.

It’s National Peanut Day on September 13th and what better way to celebrate than by making Homemade Peanut Butter with the Napoleon Stainless Steel Wok! Seriously, this wok is so versatile, I have used it for just about anything on the grill and now it’s helped make Peanut Butter.

Chocolate Cheesecake

Chocolate Cheesecake

with Maple Pecan Topping

Posted on August 25, 2016

After making Homemade Lasagna, I found myself with a lot of leftover ricotta cheese. What better way to use up the extra ricotta than to make a Chocolate Cheesecake with  Maple Pecan Topping? Instead of my usual Cheesecake Recipe, I added ricotta for a more "Italian Style" cheesecake. Inspired by National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day on August 20th, I also added the crust from my Salted Maple Pecan Bars, as well as the topping. This cheesecake recipe has to be the richest one to date.

Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast

Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast

with White Nectarines

Posted on August 05, 2016

In the height of summer I am always looking for ways to take my favorite savory dishes and make them feel more seasonal. Sweet, once again, sends pork to a new level of flavor heaven in this recipe This Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast with White Nectarines takes the spirit of summer and infuses it into an exquisite roast. The best part about this whole thing was that I set the marinade, which looks so pretty, and left for the day to help a friend move. When I came home, I just threw the pork onto a preheated grill for 45 minutes and dinner was pretty much ready.

Smoked Turkey Thighs

Smoked Turkey Thighs

with Club House La Grille Smokehouse Maple Rub

Posted on July 06, 2016
Sometimes you just bump into a recipe without realizing it. I was doing a smoke which takes most of a day, so I always make sure to get as much out of my Apollo as I can when using it. I was mainly smoking up ribs for a family dinner but I had a few other bits and bobs I wanted to smoke as well. While gathering the ingredients for this flavor adventure, I stumbled upon turkey thighs. I had seen breasts in the market before, legs too, but never just the thigh. So I went for them, remembering the giant smoked turkey legs at Disney World with fondness. I wanted to recapture the feeling, and that is how Smoked Turkey Thighs with Club House La Grille Smokehouse Maple Rub came to be.

Homemade Smoked Corned Beef

Homemade Smoked Corned Beef

An Irish Grilling Recipe

Posted on March 17, 2016
This St. Patrick’s Day I decided to make Homemade Smoked Corned Beef after the wild success of the homemade bacon. A little research uncovered that Corned Beef, largely consumed on St. Patrick’s Day by people wanting to do the Irish thing, isn’t actually from Ireland. When the Irish immigrated to North America, they needed an inexpensive meat, and thanks to their Jewish neighbors, discovered the joys of brisket. Now you too can enjoy brisket that you have proudly turned into corned beef yourself! Trust me, it’s worth the wait.

Brined Turkey Grilled Over Charcoal

Brined Turkey Grilled Over Charcoal

Succulent Thanksgiving Turkey

Posted on November 20, 2015

When you go to buy a turkey for brining, remember to purchase a bird that has not been injected with a salt-water solution prior to packaging. It will say on the package if you buy it from a grocery store. You definitely don’t want to go Butterball if you are considering brining your bird. If you can, get your turkey from a trusted, local farm. You may have to call ahead and pre-order, but it will be worth the effort. 

Brined Turkey Grilled Over Charcoal is an easy way to have the best Thanksgiving ever with very little work. Brining is easy and a great way to add flavor, and keep the juiciness of your meat. Case in point, we accidentally overcooked our very big bird (14+ lbs). I was feeling rather nonchalant about the whole grilling process this time., I was going to let it go for an hour or two, and then put the meat thermometers in. It should need at least 4 hours, right? Well, we put the thermometers in, one in the breast and one in the thigh, and it was DONE! We're aiming for 165°F; the breast was 195°F and the thigh was 180°F! The poor thing barely got any color, but we pulled it off and foiled it, then wrapped it in a tea towel to keep the heat. When I carved it a few hours - Yes it was that early - later, it was the most succulent bird ever. Juices were running everywhere! Dinner was awesome.

Sweet Potato Flower

Sweet Potato Flower

Quite the tasty looking dish

Posted on November 17, 2015
This Sweet Potato Flower is as pretty to look at as it is tasty. A little fiddly to make, but well worth it when people are in awe of your grilling prowess. I thought of this recipe because I already had mashed potatoes and mashed turnip on the menu for Thanksgiving dinner. I just couldn't do another mashed dish. Instead I created something that was both visually stunning and pretty dang tasty if you happen to enjoy sweet potato.

Green Beans

Green Beans

With Bacon, Butter & Maple

Posted on November 17, 2015
I really enjoyed the way the green beans turned out in my recipe for Maple Glazed Duck Breasts. Adding bacon seemed like a logical next step. And even better, I had the Peppercorn and Maple Bacon that I recently made. Green Beans With Bacon, Butter & Maple turned out to be a fantastic side to go with Thanksgiving Dinner. Even better, this recipe is also gluten free, making it a great side dish if you have guests with dietary needs.
