Flipping the Bird!

You all were probably wondering when we would get to the turkey, it wouldn’t be a pre-Thanksgiving without one!  Well, here it is in all its glory.  Shiny, brown and full of flavor, a brined turkey is pretty amazing.  We love them because the flavors from the brine seep into the entire bird and are…

Warm Garlic Soup!

This week we’ve got three wildly different soups simmering on the stove! Since we eat soup year round and put garlic in nearly every dish we make, this first pairing seemed perfect. Not only do you get to ingest spoonfuls of warm garlic goodness, but it’s ridiculously easy (and cheap)! Once it’s put in the…

Buffalo Sausage Bites with Red Pepper Salsa and Charred Broccoli!

Today’s Cook It Local! dish is wonderfully simple but with some amazing flavor combinations.  Don’t let the buffalo sausage turn you off, it is wonderful, full of flavor and so addictive that we almost ate it all before the pasta was finished cooking.  Buffalo is a lean meat, high in protein and low in fat….

Goodness Gracious, It’s Fried Corn on the Cob!

Sometimes we think our week boils down to “What are we going to fry on Friday?”  And, it is probably true!  We ended up making Fried Corn on the Cob to go with our Beer Can Chicken.  We needed something with a satisfying crunch.  So, inspired by an appetizer we read off the menu at…

Beer Can Chicken with Maryland Potato Salad

We do a lot of things to chicken, but this is by far the most deranged (see the pics) and delicious!  Throwback Thursday features Beer Can Chicken, Maryland Potato Salad, Fried Corn on the Cob (recipe to be featured tomorrow), and our Curiosity Cola BBQ Sauce.  We also went local with our beer:  Coastal Empire…

Going Bananas!

We are going bananas over this recipe!  At first we were a little incredulous, bananas as the base for ketchup?  But, Banana Ketchup is our new favorite condiment.  It is kind of sweet, slightly spicy, and definitely full of banana flavor.  It goes well with burgers, fish, fries, hot dogs, and so much more. Banana…

Green Horsey Sauce

This week is going to be a little different.  We are hitting the sauces.  All week long, we will be featuring a different sauce and recipes from other blogs that we believe would go well with our tasty concoctions! We love horseradish.  It has a fresh, zesty kick that can spice up any dish.  Our…

Ooo La La Caprese Pasta

We made it to Where in the World Wednesday!  It’s been a long week so far and we are keeping it simple with an amazing Caprese Pasta.  Homemade pesto shines in this dish.  It is so easy, and light which of course, is what this week has been all about!  Fresh basil, garlic, and cheeses…

Fasolia!

Where in the World are we going this week?  We are going to Ethiopia with a wonderful dish called Fasolia!  Ethiopian food consists mainly of vegetable and spicy meat stews.  They are aromatic and wonderfully spiced.  Usually Ethiopian food is served with Injera, a sourdough flat bread (kind of like a crepe) made from teff….
