Wed, 07 Jan 2015 21:18:33 +0000 hourly 1 Fall Harvest Mash Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:44:42 +0000 Fall Harvest MashNext up for the week of Thanksgiving recipe ideas happens to be my very favorite recipe lately. I’m in love with this mash recipe. I like mashes, like this Maple Butternut Squash Mash and Cauliflower Carrot Herb Mash – which both would be awesome on your Thanksgiving table too. The thing I love about this mash is the combo of all these amazing seasonal produce that creates a dish that has a combo of sweetness with the added spice of the cinnamon. It’s awesome, so please make it. If not for Thanksgiving, make it to pair with another dish. Like this pork tenderloin recipe, I bet it would work nicely with it. Hmmmm….I just might try that. I love it when I start writing to all of you and my mind actually works. By the way, when you spend a day with two almost 5 year old girls your brain is consumed with all things princess, rainbows, ladybugs, and make believe so when you sit down to write a blog post your brain isn’t 100% there… your kind of still in princess land. Which by the way is a totally fun land to be in! Takes you back to when you were a child. Ahhh, I miss those days! Ok, I’ll shut up! Now and lets talk nutrition because there are some major powerhouses in this recipe with amazing health benefits. So if you don’t believe me that you should make this maybe the nutritional information will win you over. ]]> Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:44:42 +0000 Slow Roasted Pork ShoulderI keep meaning to get back to regular posting,but 4-month old babies keep you surprisingly busy. ;) There's not much time for cooking,much less writing blog posts!

The salmon flavor stands up nicely to the relatively strong flavor of the olives and capers ]]> Braised Wild Boar with Sauerkraut and Bacon Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:44:42 +0000 Braised Wild Boar with Sauerkraut and BaconWith all the pork products that are readily available at the market, is it really necessary to seek out wild boar? Hunters who kill and butcher wild boar with their own hands so they can smoke, slow-roast or pan-fry the meat for its intensely satisfying pork flavor would say yes. So would chefs who prize boar for adding variety to the menu and for elevating dishes like cassoulet and Bolognese sauce with its rich flavor. With a taste that is similar to regular pork but more intense and a texture that is richer, wild boar is something that all meat lovers should try at least once. Boars are ancestors of the domesticated pig and have existed since before the Ice Age. In many parts of the world, boar has been part of a traditional diet for centuries although it’s still considered a novelty in the US. When domesticated pigs were brought to the Americas by Spanish explorers some escaped from farms, becoming wild, feral pigs. In the early 1900s, wild boars from Europe and Asia were brought to the US and released on hunting preserves and again, some escaped to freedom. Over time, the feral pigs and wild boars intermingled and created a hybrid breed in the US. ]]> Squash and Crab Bisque Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:44:42 +0000 Squash and Crab BisqueCreamy squash and rich coconut milk are a perfect complement for sweet crab meat.

Chop the onion. 2. Melt the coconut oil and fry the onion over a low flame until it softens and just starts to brown. 3. Cube the sweet potato and add it to the onion. Add enough water to cover the sweet potato about half way. Cook on low heat. 4. Add the turmeric and chopped parsley and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally. As you cook, keep an eye on the water. You don’t want to fill the pot with water so that you’re boiling the sweet potatoes, but you don’t want it all to evaporate either. I add a little water several times as it cooks. 5. After it’s softened enough to tastes, add the salt and pepper. ]]> Chicken Tarragon Burgers Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:44:42 +0000 Chicken Tarragon BurgersOn my travels I had a great time exploring and enjoying delicious French food. If you saw Top Chef Master's last night you got a taste of how serious French chefs are. Their training is like the military; structured,no-nonsense,all about technique,full of pride. A lot of my meals in France contained tarragon,a classic French cooking favorite. No stranger to Irish cuisine,its taste is similar to anise and licorice and is often combined with fresh parsley,chives,tarragon and chervil,otherwise known as fines herbes. Besides it's unique taste,tarragon has a long history of health benefits,such as treating stomach cramps as a digestive aid while promoting a healthy appetite. Gotta love it when your food does double duty. I was inspired by the tastes of France to liven up an American staple,the burger. These are made with ground chicken,an excellent low-fat alternative to high-fat mince. Having a barbecue? Try them as sliders.

In a glass baking dish toss together the cut up beets,garlic cloves,and coconut oil. Bake for 35-40 minutes,stirring every 10 minutes. Remove the beets and garlic from the oven and pile the kale on top. Put back in the oven for 10 minutes,stirring half way through the cooking time. The kale will start to shrink down after that first 5 minutes,making it easier to stir. While the kale and beets finish cooking,add the shrimp to a medium sized mixing bowl. When the kale and beets are done,pour over the shrimp,add the balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper if you like,stir,top with crumbled pecans and eat!

I could also add any number of modifiers such as “delicious,“ “mouthwateringly delectable,“ and just plain old “awesome,“ but I think the name includes the most important bits. This recipe is dead simple: poke holes in the brisket and shove in some garlic cloves, season, throw in a load of sliced mushrooms and more garlic cloves, and slow cook away for a day or overnight (8hrs). I originally watched Emeril way back when garlic stud his roasts and loved the idea. I’’ve used it before in my recipe: Not Your Mama’’s Pot Roast. It is a great way to flavor the meat and insert little pockets of meltable deliciousness into the beef. ]]> Parsnip-Sweet Potato Casserole Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:44:43 +0000 Parsnip-Sweet Potato CasseroleWinter root vegetables are the base of this simple, yet elegant, seasonal side dish.
