As a going away-have to celebrate-birthday-need dessert for this event thing, I found a recipe for Salted Maple Pecan Bars. I just had to put a grill-spin on it. Okay, so there were five and a half of us (one guy had one piece and disappeared somewhere) and we demolished the 9 x 13-inch tray that I made. These were so good that I had to make them again two days later. So good that when asked for seconds from someone, I lied and said that they were all gone. Yeah. THAT kind of good.
It's always good to try something different. That is what I did with this recipe. First, I purchased a cut of steak that I don't often get. The flank steak is usually mis-cooked and often tough and not so great. But like many things, just needs some tender loving care. Flank is porous and benefits from the marinade treatment. The other thing I tried was some different photography techniques. I'm not sure I like how the dark and moody thing came out. But the photos make the food look tasty. I guess that's what matters.
Sure, you could celebrate national peanut day with just one thing, and that thing was delicious grilled chicken legs, slathered with Peanut Butter Barbecue Sauce, but what's the fun in that when you can celebrate with TWO recipes? Basically, I don't like to have a meal without something a little sweet at the end. I have a sweet tooth. It's right beside my garlic tooth and my meat tooth.
This loaf of pure deliciousness is fantastically gluten free and vegan if you can believe it. It's like a granola bar got married to cake and had an oatmeal muffin baby, then sprinkled it with chocolate chips. No seriously guys, it's that good. It makes a filling breakfast, but it's perfect for a relatively guilt free after dinner sweet too.
Sometimes you just need something a little more filling than nibbles when you're cooking for a crowd or game day. These Boneless Ribs With Apple-Hickory Barbecue Sauce fill the hole, can be eaten as finger food, proper like with a fork and knife, or on a bun for portability. They're sticky, sweet, and oh so delicious. Finished with some brown sugar on top, you'll have people screaming for you to "gimme some sugar".
Nothing's better than bacon. Well, there's chocolate, that's really good, and butter, and garlic, garlic-butter... okay there are several things AS GOOD AS bacon. But when you wrap things IN bacon, well, you're upping the game to the next level of delicious. This recipe for Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Rings With Sriracha And Brown Sugar Baste are bacon-y and sweet, and spicy, and all around YUMMY.
With tailgate season upon us, not to mention the plethora of championship games to watch, there is no shortage of reasons to have food that requires dip. That's where Buffalo Chicken Queso Dip comes in. This dip is super thick, bursting at the seams with spicy-tangy buffalo sauce and cheesy goodness. This recipe makes loads; we ran out of chips before we ran out of dip.
Today, September the 18th, is National Cheeseburger Day! How do you plan on celebrating?
I made some supremely cheesy beef burgers to celebrate, and I really recommend that you whip some of these up for tonight's dinner too! Last year we had the pleasure of Sultana's Bacon Cheeseburgers, but this year, we have something even better! What could be better you ask? These Super Cheesy Swiss Stuffed Cheeseburgers With Cheddar And Jalapeño Havarti. I know that the recipe time says that it takes 105 minutes to make, but it's all in the prep, and then there's 30 minutes of chilling time too. But I can assure you that these burgers are worth it.
I needed a whitefish for a lunch recipe at work. Yep. I grill, at work, on the job, feeding the people in the office. That is what I do, when I'm not typing. I have the best job.
Okay I digress. Needed fish. Needed something different. So, pacing in front of the seafood counter in the local supermarket, I asked for a reasonably priced fish that I could get a lot of right then and there. The kind person who helped me suggested the Rockfish. Yep. Still new to the seafood world I goggled at her. What's a rockfish? It doesn't sound that great. Maybe a little hard. (ba dum) You may know it as Black Snapper. And this is how you grill it up quickly for a fantastic meal.
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.
Happy National Peanut Day everyone. Well actually it's September 13th... BUT I had to celebrate and share with you! Instead of doing something Thai with a peanut sauce, or a delightful dessert, I opted to do something slightly unexpected. I made a peanut butter laced barbecue sauce. Was it ever delicious! Creamy. Slightly spicy, and definitely a little sweet. You gotta try this on your next meal with chicken.
