The Best Roasted Potatoes Ever

Make Great Grandma Proud

Posted on December 21, 2016
Nothing goes better with a family dinner than The Best Roasted Potatoes Ever, these bites of potato are at once crispy and fluffy. Imagine a caramelized crunch, seasoned to perfection, breaking away as you bite down, to reveal the fluffiest, most perfect potato on earth. We had a little time to wait before these were served and it was very hard not to sneak a few (like all of them). This is a recipe that will make Great Grandmother proud, and be handed down to your children’s children!

Holiday Stuffing

Holiday Stuffing

with Grill Roasted Chestnuts and Sausage

Posted on December 14, 2016
To celebrate Roasted Chestnuts Day, I had to try roasting chestnuts over an open fire. That’s a song isn’t it? Anyway, after roasting a big bag full of these yummy beauties I needed to do something super festive with them. Holiday Stuffing with Grill-Roasted Chestnuts and Sausage seemed like a great way to use these freshly roasted nuts to their fullest potential. This dish is a great side for any roasted poultry based family dinner.

Layers of Savory Goodness

Posted on November 09, 2016
It’s National Sundae Day soon. Don’t relegate yourself to consuming copious amounts of ice cream layered with delicious tidbits like strawberries, chocolate fudge, and whipped cream. (Not that this is a bad thing) Why not try something layered with more savory treats? BBQ Sundaes are made with the expectation that you have prepared each of the ingredients prior to beginning this fun way of serving your favorite barbecued delicacies. If not, you better get grilling. I’ve made some recipe suggestions for you, picking out my favorites for these delicious BBQ Sundae layers.

Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb

Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb

on the Rotisserie

Posted on November 02, 2016
The rotisserie is possibly one of the best grilling accessories you can have. Cooking a Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb on the Rotisserie makes for one succulent meal indeed. Savory spices, roasted garlic oil, and a little patience went a long way to making this family dinner an enjoyable one.

PRO TIP: Remove the grids and sear plates, place Napoleon's Cast Iron Charcoal and Smoker Tray on the burners and use some lump charcoal and wood chips to give your lamb that delicious charcoal flavor.

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!

Pepper Crusted Water Buffalo Filet

Pepper Crusted Water Buffalo Filet

With Squashed & Crispy Roasted Potatoes

Posted on January 21, 2016
When I visited the Water Buffalo Festival in September I got my hands on a bunch of great cuts of buffalo meat. The filets have been languishing in my freezer since then, but I felt the need to whip out a good steak recipe. That's when we had Pepper Crusted Water Buffalo Filet With Squashed & Crispy Roasted Potatoes. The intense pepper and the succulent meat paired beautifully. The pepper didn't overpower the unique, beefy-gaminess of the meat; which can happen often if you're not careful. Serving this with a dollop of sour cream on the crunchy potatoes helped too. That little bit of sour cream mixed with the juices and you got a sauce that instantly cooled the heat of a rogue peppercorn. Naturally the tenderloin (filet mignon) melted in your mouth too. Such a simple and decadent meal.

Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

A strange twist on a home-style classic

Posted on December 15, 2015
Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie is an "I have some pork and some sweet potatoes, now what?" sort of recipe. It was chilly that day, so I wanted something cozy to eat, and easy to make. That's when I thought, why not make a shepherd's pie! This recipe is overflowing with savory gravy. Instead of the typical peas and corn, I went with sweet green pepper. Then I added LOADS of pork topped it with a creamy and crispy sweet potato crust. What's not to love about this recipe?

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

With Maple Syrup & Cider

Posted on November 03, 2015
I made these Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples after seeing a photo online. That's how it happens sometimes. I just had this image in my head and was all about making these! I started with the most gigantic apples I have ever seen. These Honey Crisp Apples - yes the ones from the Maple Walnut Apple Crisp recipe - were perfect for this. They were ginormous! Massive. Did I mention they were big?  Then I grabbed some sausage. It couldn't be just any sausage though, it had to be the right amounts of sweet and savory, something that would pair prettily with the apple and other sweet flavors. In the end I had these gigantic apple bombs that were aromatic and delectable. A perfect balance. Oh and they're gluten free too.
