Tis the season, and ham is in the air! Well, maybe not. But it’s certainly on my mind. I plan on recreating today’s recipe, Bourbon Glazed Ham, for my Christmas Eve feast. If I have time, I’ll make some bread and then sit there chomping away at chunks of bread and ham with a touch of Caribbean hot sauce until my body tells me enough.Read More
I stumbled upon a new snack, Fried Paprika Chickpeas. These babies are perfect with a cocktail or a robust red wine. Is it cocktail hour where you are right now? If yes, give this recipe a try.
Happy July 4th folks. For those of you having your friends and family over and still stuck on what to give them to eat, how about Peppered Hot Dogs? Are simple yet very tasty and will satisfy almost anyone’s appetite.
Cheese and Artichoke Dip is a yummy dish and is very simple to create and a touch addictive, so beware! Thankfully, it’s great for sharing with a crowd, hence the responsibility of eating it doesn’t rest on your shoulders alone.
Affogato is described as an Italian liqueur – ice cream topped with coffee. I have made a couple of changes to the traditional recipe and created a Jamaican affogato. Two mounds of caramel swirl ice cream topped with spiced and spiked coffee. It is delicious.
Egg on toast is a great meal. I will have egg on toast for breakfast, brunch, as a snack and even dinner. It’s the every man, any time meal.
Today’s egg on toast recipe is a fried egg on a bed of parsley, onions and radishes. It’s really simple and seriously tasty.
There are those late mornings when nothing else will do other than a buttery pastry filled with cured meat and cheese and today’s recipe is just that. Pancetta Brie Honey Croissants – pure yum!
Each croissant is filled with cooked pancetta, a slab of brie and topped with a slice of honeycomb. Pure yum! Or did I say that already?
Cranberry pecan baked brie is a really easy dish to create. Perfect for the holidays. It’s great as a party snack or an after dinner sweet treat. I like to serve mine after dinner with port. Once the dinner things have been washed and put away, so that I can relax and take in a movie.
I love bruschetta. Good quality produce on a slice of toasted or grilled bread, is as simple as it is satisfying. Today’s recipe is mushroom bruschetta. A mix of varieties of mushrooms, simply sautéed in butter with just a little watercress for flavor and garnish.
I have a friend, who shall remain nameless, who really hates Valentine’s Day. He constantly groans on that Valentine’s Day is a creation made by the greeting card companies, and he will not be fooled into spending good money on “crap” such as roses, chocolates and cards. Jeeze – he’s a real buzz kill during this time of year. Bless his suffering partner, let’s call her Julie, she deserves a medal. Today’s recipe is for Julie – maple caramel popcorn. She asked me to share a recipe for popcorn as it is my friend’s favorite thing to eat when watching a movie, and he loves to watch movies.
