This week our Friday Night Date Night took us out on the town to a Wine Dinner Fleming’s in Tysons Corner. The theme of tonight’s Wine Dinner was “Big Reds” and we were excited to try these wines on a cold winter’s night. As it is with most wine dinners we met up with our dear […]
Our week of making stir fry dishes continues featuring this tasty Pork Tofu stir fry dish. Quick and easy this recipe is a keeper! Once again my plan to break in the Lodge Cast Iron Wok was foiled by the weather. The rain, sleet, and snow kept me inside and away from the Big Green […]
Debbie and I love going to Mon Ami here in Reston. In addition, we adore their Moules Marinieres and will go there just to eat that dish along with a bottle of wine (or at least that is what we tell ourselves before we end up ordering a full meal). We have made mussels at home several […]
What is sous-vide?! That IS the question. Well, I didn’t know it was a question until I visited London last year and had the pleasure at eating at Dinner By Heston Blumenthal in the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. During dinner we had a chicken course that was made using the Sous-vide technique. I can tell you of […]
For this Friday Night Date night (at home) I was excited to break in my new Lodge Cast Iron Wok. Unfortunately, the sleet, freezing rain, and snow prevented me from cooking outdoors and I moved the operation inside. On tap was a good looking recipe I found on the Food & Wine website, Thai Chicken Basil Stir Fry.
Want to spice up those baby back ribs?!?! Well try your ribs with Gochujang BBQ sauce! I have smoked ribs for years always using the 3-2-1 method. They always turn out great so I haven’t had the motivation to change… that is until I read a post from Kamado Jim about his Damn Simple, Damn Delicious […]
This year started off fast and I wasn’t able to get in the kitchen for several days. Once I found some time to get caught up I wanted to make something lighter and on the healthy side to get 2015 going in the right direction. I found a great recipe from another Blog I follow […]
This incredible recipe was found and adapted from an issue of Wine Spectator I received in 2014. The marinade is fantastic and really adds a new dimension to Rib Eye steaks. The Mushroom Panzanella was a great side dish for this delicious grilled steak! I paired this wonderful meal with a nice Malbec. Enjoy this interpretation of Rib […]
Panzanella is a Tuscan salad usually made with bread and tomatoes. This recipe replaced the tomatoes with various mushrooms which really gave the Rib Eye steak a dose of umami which balanced the dining experience. This recipe for Summer Mushroom Panzanella pairs perfectly with the Rib Eye Steak with Miso Red Wine Marinade recipe I posted earlier.
I had lunch with a friend of mine at a local Thai restaurant. On that day I decided to get the Thai Beef salad and it was so delicious I wanted to recreate that flavor profile at home on my BGE. I started to research the flavors of Thailand and in the process came across […]
