The Smoked Gouda Duck Confit Grilled Cheese is a standard casual entertaining food around here. One of Chef B’s little treasures; it’s savory and smoky with just a hint of salty, buttery toasted-ness, and always a big hit. Now it can be a big hit in your house.
The Pulled Pork Po Boy is like spicy, saucy bacon-y goodness on a nice chunk of French bread. In Louisiana, Po Boy sandwiches come in a couple different flavours; there’s fried, featuring battered shrimp, crawfish or oysters and then there’s pulled, featuring pork, cooked low, slow and saucy.
Certain members of the family won’t eat their veggies? Nothing a little olive oil, garlic and parmesan cheese won’t cure. Super simple, super easy, super cheesy, four ingredients. Here we've added brussles sprouts, yes, brussles spouts, tiny cabbages. Yum.
Who says Thanksgiving has to be all about turkey? It’s your Thanksgiving, make your own rules (you rebel you). What says Fall Feast in your kitchen? You’re not bound by convention, you're a freethinker. (But, just in case we've got you covered on that whole How To Cook a Turkey thing.)
Somehow apple pie has become a symbol of appreciation. The simple act of being grateful for what you DO have brings forward more to be grateful for, thus the attitude of gratitude Apple Gogi Berry Pie.
One last kick at summer, a simple, elegant execution for the last of the season’s peaches with this Peach Basil Goat Cheese Galette. The beauty of a gallette is it's rustic, rough appeal. Even those ‘pasty-challenged’ can manage a gallete and do it well.
It’s comfort food season, a chilly day found me in the kitchen whipping-up a batch of spaghetti & meatballs, singing “On Top of Spaghetti” and pondering the nature of the sobriety of those writing children’s songs.
Lobster Chili, you’ll be the hit of the tailgate party. MAN FOOD, with a refined twist (and buttery, garlicky, cheesy biscuits).
Our resident French Girl and Food Gypsy Editor, Astrid Deslandes, takes one for the team, testing a recipe from David Lebovitz – Gluten-Free Brownies. It’s a tough assignment, bound to add inches to the thighs.
Inspired by Greece it's not a hamburger, but a lamb burger favoured with oregano and garlic, punched up with spinach and salted by feta. It borrows from keftedes or Greek meatballs, made with beef, garlic, oregano and mint or our Burger el Greco.
Sometimes it’s the simplest things that strike a cord. Like this pretty little Thai Sweet Chili Chicken. Didn’t intend to post because two ingredients; “chicken” and “jar o’ sauce” does not a “recipe” make, but it's a solid thecnique for the grill and using it, you'll get beautiful results every time.
This is a cake that takes time, patience and effort. Therefore I only make my Double Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cake for those who will not just appreciate, but worship it. It is only fitting for one of nature's most perfect foods.
