Orange BBQ Ribs

Luckily here in Southern Utah we get to enjoy summer a little longer than everyone else. That means more time to fit summer recipes and BBQs. I personally feel that ribs are a quintessential part of summer and should definitely make an appearance at your next party.

Pork Chops with Sage and Butter

Hands down, these are the best pork chops ever. Not only is this recipe savory, delicious, and elegant, it is ridiculously easy to make. A lot of people claim that pork chops are boring because of their dry texture and bland flavor, but I assume these individuals are not properly cooking them. The trick here is to use a thick pork chop, a piping hot cast iron skillet, and not over cooking the chops (yummy ingredients don’t hurt either).

Grilled Peach Salad

This week we have a simple yet impressive salad recipe. Everyone enjoys a nice salad, but lets be honest; sometimes salad can get a little old. If the wimpy greens and gloopy ranch dressing just isn’t cutting it, we’ve got you covered. With peach season around the corner, I can’t think of a better way to eat the juicy stone fruits than in a fresh salad.

Beet Salad

This week’s recipe is one of my favorite salads to eat during the spring and summer months. Whether I order it off a menu or I make my own at home, this salad packs color, flavor, and is a refreshing transition to the heavy comfort foods we’ve enjoyed the past 5 months.

Carrot Jalapeño Soup

I was inspired to make this recipe based off the carrot jalapeño soup at the Painted Pony restaurant here in Southern Utah. For years Painted Pony has made this delicious soup and for years I have continued to order it every time I visit. Last weekend I decided to try and make it myself… and I must say it is not bad.

Pantry Pasta

This week’s recipe comes from the deep corners of my pantry and fridge. Let’s be honest, we all experience those moments when you feel like there is absolutely “nothing” to eat in the house. I came up with this recipe one evening when I had nothing to make for dinner and was too lazy to go grocery shopping or order takeout. My kitchen happened to be stocked with a box of pasta, lemons, garlic, and parmesan cheese. Put these all together and voila, you have a quick and yummy dish.

Moroccan Braised Chicken

Faced with the dilemma on what to make for dinner earlier this week, I stumbled across a recipe I hadn’t made since cooking school. I remembered this dish being absolutely delicious yet relatively simple. With most of the ingredients (despite a few exotic elements) in my fridge and pantry, this North African classic was on its way to the rescue.

Swedish Pancakes

Without getting into the technicalities of pancakes, and believe me when I say there are many different types of pancakes from all over the world, a Swedish pancake is a variation of pancake with Nordic origins that is very similar to a crepe. Who doesn’t love Scandinavian pastries and French Crepes?! Instead of pulling out the old Bisquick box that has been in the pantry for 5+ years, how about trying this week’s recipe that is sure to be a pancake favorite and maybe even a new tradition.

Grilled Cilantro Shrimp

When I find fresh fish at the market, no question I buy it (befriending your local fishmongers is a great idea. They’re experts and will let you know what is good to buy). This week I stumbled across some pretty prawns that were perfect for a delicious and simple summer meal, involving my grill. Who doesn’t love delicious and simple?

Grown Up Grilled Cheese

With the cold weather lately, now is the time when cozy foods are needed most. This week’s post puts a fun twist on a childhood classic and is certain to make your feel warm inside. Forget everything your mother taught you about grilled cheese. There is so much more to a grilled cheese than bread, butter, and cheddar cheese… promise.

Lemon Cream Cheese Pancakes

I am a huge breakfast person and believe that I could survive solely on breakfast foods. Any time the opportunity presents itself, whether on the weekends or the rare weekday morning occasion, I take full advantage of making a big breakfast. Breakfast staples can usually be found in my kitchen at anytime, especially the ingredients for this week’s recipe.

Olive Oil & Ice Cream

Who doesn’t have olive oil in their pantry? It is a must-have in every kitchen. As a cook, one of the hardest things to find is a good olive oil. Ever wonder why your vinaigrette dressing doesn’t taste quite right? The low-grade “extra-virgin” olive oil is probably to blame.

Aebleskivers

I have always been a fan of Scandinavian tradition, culture, and design. Maybe it’s the fact that my ancestors are from Northern Europe, or because their appreciation for simplicity and functionality gave the world affordable, stylish furniture (they invented IKEA), or maybe it’s because of a delicious, fluffy, pancake ball.

Stir-Fried Asparagus

Asparagus is a go–to vegetable for any meal, anytime, anywhere. I find it impressive and delicious to serve asparagus for breakfast, brunch, and weeknight dinners. Not to mention every holiday dinner. Need a quick upgrade to your meal? Asparagus. The vegetable is so versatile it can be served or prepared in almost any variation. Though asparagus has a season it should never go overlooked.

Honeycomb Caramel Popcorn

Whether you are protesting to “save the bees” from dangerous climates and pesticides, or you just prefer a drizzle of sweet honey on your morning toast, bees and their honey are one of nature’s sweetest and most fascinating creatures. Respectively, even more active than the ant, a honeybee sets out to hunt, pollinate, and take care of the hive until night.
