I couldn’t decide what to grill between chicken thighs or pork tenderloin. So what’s the answer? Both, of course! That’s usually the best answer. And veggies to accompany, kabob style. I marinated the chicken and pork in a Sweet Bourbon Glaze by Pepper Palace. It’s one of those really easy marinades where you don’t have … More Mixed Grill!
Yes the title is a mouthful, but what a delicious one! And I didn’t even add to the title the side of smoked maple sweet potatoes. Together they were a deliciously complex and satisfying dish! This one is really just about the ingredients. I was inspired by the morel mushrooms I finally saw available at … More Pork Chops with Morels, Asparagus and Cherries in Wine
This is definitely a malleable recipe, loosely held together with an egg, where you can change up pretty much anything in it to suit your fancy. You could probably even do canned chicken instead of salmon, but then you’d have to change the title! I happen to be enjoying success right now with my herb … More Baked Salmon Burgers
We had a couple of recommend “must dos” for our trip based on my research and inquiries. The one common denominator was to do a carriage ride through the historic city of Charleston. They offer group or private ones, we went with the private one. What a nice treat!! The carriage picked us up at … More Charleston, SC: Part 3 (Carriage Rides and Fort Sumter)
Ok, now for the amazing dinner part. We definitely ate our way through Charleston and sometimes it felt like I was just passing time strolling through this lovely town between meals!! Our first night at dinner was the best. The Charleston Grill. This restaurant is inside of the Belmond Charleston Place. It’s definitely fine dining … More Charleston, South Carolina: Part 2 (Fine Dining, Fresh Breakfast, and Walking)
Charming. You feel it immediately. That Southern Charm. The “yes, Sir” and “yes Ma’am” is something this Yankee always gets a smile out of hearing. So much so that I even say it quite a good bit myself. And it abounds here. The soul of the south runs deep, and the breezes off the water … More Charleston, South Carolina: Part One
I’m not sure what technically makes an egg on toast kinda thing a “Benedict.” I call anything with a poached egg and some kind of protein on top of a bread-like vessel a Benedict. So here’s the one I made for breakfast when I had some smoked salmon I needed to use and some farm … More Quick Smoked Salmon Benedict (ish)
Ok, I know I don’t usually blog about desserts/baked goods, but this treat was blogworthy for sure. My sister and I both saw the same thing or Facebook recently showing these cookies, and we already had plans to get together over Memorial Day Weekend. And the kids saw it too. It’s fun to be like, … More S’mores Cookies
Yay three day weekend! Plenty of opportunities to cook and eat good foods. The weather for our gathering yesterday was iffy, so I didn’t count on grilling. Instead, I did an all-indoor-made spread. Starting with one of my favorites – a spinach and artichoke dip. I make this different ways, and it’s very easy to … More Simple Dips and Baked BBQ Chicken
This year for Mother’s Day, we brought in some home town Maryland steamed crabs. The line was long, but the wait was worth it!! Who knew so many people would want crabs for Mother’s Day? They were delicious. We made some steamed shrimp and corn on the side and got fancy with Prosecco instead of … More Maryland Crabs and Crab Pizza!
