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 »





Gruyere, Mushroom & Caramelized Onion Puff Pastry Tart

3 12 2016

puff-pastry-bitesThis year for Thanksgiving, I delegated more than usual. Typically I love to do most of the cooking but that said, we had two households of grandparents joining us and they all like to contribute too.

I smoked a turkey breast outside, blue cheese mashed potatoes and pretty much that was going to be it. Feeling restless that that was all I was going to do, I needed to find an appetizer, something interesting that I hadn’t done before but also, something that wasn’t going to take a ton of time or space in the oven.

Through searching around, I found something very similar to this puff pastry tart. It was super easy, the prep being able to be done the day before (important in holiday cooking land) and only take a total of about 25 minutes the next day.

Hope you enjoy my version. I can see this being adapted a thousand different ways so this might just be my master recipe that I’ll alter just about every time I make them from now on. Read the rest of this entry »





Dang Cold Asian Noodle Salad – Updated

31 01 2010

I know, goofy title but this is an old recipe from a Guy Fieri TV show that is long gone and I’ve adjusted some things to my taste. It’s a great, easy salad to put together and it goes with any number of other dishes. We have a group that is having a sushi party tonight and it aught to be a great match. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Funny, I just noticed that I originally posted this recipe exactly 5 years ago today (1/31/15 as of update), that’s some weird voodoo stuff right there!
