BBQ Baked Beans – Electric Pressure Cooker

22 04 2017

All right all you Instant Pot and Electric Pressure Cooker people. This one is for you. A summer BBQ staple, a picnic must, sure you can buy them in a can for $3-4 each, reheat and go. They are okay, in fact, they are pretty good. You can and should make them yourself though, an entirely different experience, they are amazing. I’m talking of course about BBQ Baked Beans! With the pressure cooker, it’s honestly just silly to buy them, check out how simple this is. Read the rest of this entry »

Mexican Street Corn Deviled Eggs

22 04 2017

I LOVE deviled eggs. The highlight of any potluck, picnic, holiday appetizer spread are the deviled eggs. My wife and I went to an upscale local restaurant a while back called Cellar Cat and they had a fancy deviled egg appetizer option (which we ordered and was amazing). All that said, I have probably 25 recipes for them all saved up…and I never make them. I have no idea why, they aren’t difficult, it isn’t expensive, I just don’t know.

I decided to get off my culinary rear end for Easter and made these eggs, inspired by Mexican street corn (Elotes). All the flavors and textures work so well as a deviled egg, I had to share. I hope you try it and enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »





Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs – Electric Pressure Cooker

24 04 2016

Hard-Boiled-EggsOne thing I haven’t typically done on this blog is to post really basic things but today I can’t help myself. There are a thousand “tips” out there for making perfect hard boiled eggs. Some kinda work, others don’t. Some say don’t use farm fresh eggs, others say you can. Here’s the one thing I know now, the pressure cooker makes PERFECT hard boiled eggs, easiest to peel that I’ve ever made and in no time at all.

I’m going to be posting several recipes in the coming weeks using the new electric pressure cooker toy but for now, here’s a perfect egg for your enjoyment. Read the rest of this entry »





Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta

1 01 2016

20151011_180732This one is a little different. I’m all about butternut roasted in salads or made in to a great curry soup, even as a filling in a ravioli but I’ve never seen the squash BE the sauce. To give credit where credit is due, Katie found this recipe. I think I actually made it the same day she sent it to me. We grow butternut in the garden every year and this year was a VERY good year for that particular plant, in fact we still have 8-9 of them wintering right now to use throughout the cold months. Alright, enough yammering, on to the recipe. Read the rest of this entry »





My Personal Roasted Tomato Sauce

19 09 2015

20150829_154721Late summer, it’s all about tomatoes. To see how many you can eat, how many ways you can use them, how many can you save for the chilly parts of the year when they are horrible in the store. Once you finish off the big slicers for BLT’s, the cherry tomatoes for snacking and salads (or you could be adventurous and pickle those, click here to check that out), it’s time for all those paste tomatoes to get ripe, sauce time! Here’s the thing, there are 100 ways to make sauce, for pizza, pasta, salsa…it can go on and on and on. I make one basic sauce, it’s much easier to adjust seasonings at the time of use than to make separate batches.

Here’s the rest of the short list of ingredients. Read the rest of this entry »





The Best Salted Caramel Shortbread Bars

7 02 2015

Salted Caramel BarsIt’s no secret that I shy away from baking and that I’m more comfortable in the savory end of the kitchen but once in a while I’ll break out and try something for fun. Superbowl weekend seemed like a good time since we had great friends coming over. There is kind of an overload of salty sweet stuff out there nowadays but this is nice and simple with great results. You don’t need much on-hand other than thinking ahead about the salted caramel sauce itself. If you are more adventurous than I, you can certainly make your own but I bought off the shelf with great results. I hope you agree! Read the rest of this entry »





Tomato Pie – A Great Way To Finish The Season

10 10 2014

Tomato PieThis time of year, you’re likely bemoaning the end of summer and the bounty that it provides, OR, tired of  roasting, canning or freezing, OR, frantically trying to figure out what to do with the end of season goodies that this late summer has brought us. Well, I have a suggestion for the tomatoes! Try your hand at a tomato pie! You can either eat it the same day or prepare the pie and freeze it before baking to save for a slightly chillier season. It can be served as a main dish or as a side.
