It was Super Bowl Sunday. You have to have something you can eat in front of the TV. Pizza is the perfect food. I had been wanting to try a different sourdough pizza crust that would have a bit more bite to it. This is the Sourdough Pizza I made.
I was invited to a pot luck dinner. I was assigned to bring a green vegetable. ARGH! If you cook a vegetable before you go, it will be either cold or mush from being kept warm too long. If you cook at the hosts home, you are in their way in their kitchen. I got around it by making a Broccoli Salad. Delicious cold green vegetables to the rescue. Continue reading Broccoli Salad
Smoking meat is often equated with a lot of work and preparation. Banking coals, lighting wood, mixing ingredients and careful tending of the fire. However, sometimes, you just feel butt lazy. Thanks to my Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker. I can still have great food. This Smoked Pork Loin took little effort but was tasty. Continue reading Simple Smoked Pork Loin
When I make bacon, the end pieces are strongly smoked and aren’t nice cooked on their own. So, I decided to use them to make Bacon Barley Soup. Don’t worry if you don’t smoke your own bacon, you could substitute regular bacon or back (Canadian to Americans) bacon. Continue reading Bacon Barley Soup
I love stir fries. They don’t take long to make, the short cooking time leaves the vegetables crisp and they are so versatile. I was informed by She Who Must Be Obeyed that I was making a beef stir fry. Who am I to argue? I made Beef Curry Stir Fry. Continue reading Beef Curry Stir Fry
I love Mac & Cheese. However, it often isn’t very cheesy and it can be a bit bland. So I added extra cheese, made a ham topping and added a few more adult seasonings and made a great updated Mac & Cheese. As for the name Monday Mac & Cheese, I didn’t know what to call this. She Who Must Be Obeyed heaved a long suffering sigh and said, “Call it Monday.” She must be obeyed. Continue reading Monday Mac & Cheese
Sometimes you deserve the best. That first happened for me when I met She Who Must Be Obeyed. This time, I had two nice beef tenderloin steaks. We deserved them!
When you have great beef, you don’t need to do a lot to make a great meal. I just seasoned the steak with Louisiana Grills Mesquite Rub N’ Grill and cooked it on the Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker. Continue reading Grilled Fillet Steak
The problem with most hamburger buns is that they are too large in my opinion. Either you buy the horrible pasty ones in the supermarket or you buy a higher quality bun and it is twice the size. I like a bun that has a nice flavour, a good chew and isn’t so big you don’t notice the burger or other sandwich filling. These Sourdough Onion Buns fit the bill.
