Blue Cheese Risotto with Sautéed Apples and Bacon

December 4, 2012

I’ve been known to get inspiration for recipes in the weirdest places, but I think the story of this recipe takes the cake.  The idea for this recipe came after I washed my iPhone in the washing machine.  Yes, it was as insane and cringe inducing as it sounds.  I was attempting to keep on [...]

Spicy Pumpkin Grits with Bacon & Cheddar

October 24, 2012

Last month we played with apples for our 5 Star Makeover challenge.  This month we got another seasonal ingredient in the form of squash.  I’ve played around with squash a fair bit in the time I’ve had this blog.  Though pumpkin in particular takes most Americans to a sweet place, most of my experimentation has [...]

Grilled Wild Alaskan Black Cod Tacos with Pineapple-Bacon Relish

April 16, 2012

For this installment of the wild Alaska seafood blogger fish taco contest our challenge was to do a grilled taco. While I will admit that a fried fish taco in all its battered, crispy glory is more my style, I was curious to experiment with something a little lighter. As with my last recipe I [...]

Aloha-Inspired Fish Taco with Ginger Slaw, Caramelized Pineapple and Macadamia Nuts

I had a blast working with Alaska Seafood to conceive a dish for the Foodbuzz Blogger Fest so when they reached out to ask if I’d like to participate in an Alaska Fish Taco contest for bloggers I was game.  The contest started back in February (though I’ve been a bit late to the party [...]

Chicken with Apple Balsamic Cream Sauce

January 9, 2012

Back in November while at the Foodbuzz Fest I tried for the first time, and consequently fell in love with, Apple Balsamic Vinegar.  Made from apple vinegar and apple juice it had the characteristic depth of balsamic vinegar with the sweetness of apples.  And having been aged for 5 years it was also slightly syrupy [...]

Beef Stroganoff Burgers

December 28, 2011

This was one of those recipes I never intended to post.  I made them for one of my friends over the summer, a casual dinner enjoyed on the back porch with copious amounts of wine and good conversation.  Because of all the socializing, snapping a good photograph of this dish was the last thing on [...]

Turkey Noodle Soup with Butternut Squash, Pancetta and Cider Broth

December 14, 2011

I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but I’m known for changing what I’m making for dinner once I’ve already started cooking.  As in, the butter’s melted, the pancetta is crisping in the pan and I’m onto something entirely different than where I originally started.  It seems like terrible evidence of my short attention [...]

Pumpkin, Brie and Bacon Pasta Bake

October 26, 2011

When it was announced that this month’s 5 Star Makeover would be tailgate food, immediately I thought of doing a take on Mac and Cheese. It’s one of those perfect tailgate foods in my mind because it can easily be stretched to serve more people than its original intent, which is perfect if your tailgate [...]
