Believe it or not, winter has made it’s way to Arizona! We have been in the 50’s and 60’s all week, and my mind has completely switched over to comfort foods. Of course the disaster in my kitchen could also be part of the appeal, but it was time for something thick, creamy, and hearty to try and warm me up……..
Who is ready for some cold weather? There is nothing better on a cold day, than a big ol’ bowl of hearty Southwest Chili with Black Beans and Corn to warm you up! I won’t lie, Guinness Chili is still my favorite go-to chili, but it was time to change things up and create a chili with exciting new flavors and ingredients now that the weather is finally starting to cool down here in AZ……..
Are you ready for some hearty, comfort food? Everyone has their own preferences for comfort food, but most of mine include beef. I know, you’re shocked. What if I told you that you could have this amazing Simple Pot Roast with Carrots and Squash for dinner without all the guilt? I mentioned the other day that I was going to……..
The moment that you have all been waiting for has finally arrived! May I present to you….Beef Tenderloin with Tomato Butter Shrimp and Grilled Corn Relish for your dining pleasure. Not only was this an absolutely amazing birthday meal, but it would also be the ultimate Dinner for Two. I mean seriously, who would not fall in love with you after you prepare them this meal……..
If you are Bobby Flay, you grill your steaks with a heavy dose of salt and pepper. If you’re in a hurry that method will work perfectly fine, but if you have a couple extra minutes to spare this Canadian Steak Marinade will take your grilled steaks to all new levels of heavenly deliciousness! Either way, you need your steaks to come up to room temperature……..
Have you ever gotten a burger at a diner, or fun burger joint, and wondered how they make it soooo juicy and delicious? I have been seeing “Smashed Burgers” and “Smash Burger” all over the place lately, and it reminded me of the way that Culver’s makes their Butterburgers. Alex worked there in high school, so I decided to have him show me how to recreate them at home……..
It’s 116 degrees outside and you need to make dinner…what do you do? Well, you definitely don’t turn on the oven! I have a covered patio, so it makes much more sense to go outside and throw some hot dogs on the grill. Not just any hot dogs though, these are extra special Barbecue Bacon Hot Dogs topped with crispy onion rings……..
Do you ever go out to dinner and think to yourself “my version tastes better”? That happened to me last week when my mom and I went out to dinner. This is Arizona, I was expecting authentic, mind blowing Mexican food….but that’s not what we got! I ordered the Shredded Beef Chimichangas, like I always do, and it’s hard to describe what arrived at the table……..
