Cumin Grilled Chicken Breasts

Cumin Grilled Chicken Breasts

I got this recipe from the Food Network. I had some chicken breasts in my freezer that I wanted to use up in a new way and since it is summer, I looked for a simple grilled chicken recipe that didn’t require marinating (because I didn’t have the time) and this is what I found. Best part is the whole process of prep and cooking only takes about 25 minutes.

Bourbon Glazed Peameal Bacon Sandwich

I absolutely love peameal bacon. I usually just slice and fry in a frying pan and enjoy with a little mustard. When I saw this recipe, I just KNEW that I had to go buy some peameal bacon to try it out! Definitely worth the wait (I couldn’t find peameal bacon in my local grocery store for about 2 weeks, and it was driving me nuts with all the anticipation).

Grilled Lemon Herb Trout

This is the first time I’ve cooked a whole fish (minus the head) and I think it was a success. Granted, the fish was cleaned and headless, I was pretty impressed with myself. Not only does grilled whole fish look impressive, it’s often cheaper than buying pre-cut fillets at the fish counter. I bought frozen from the grocery store, but if you go to a fish monger, you can probably get fresh.

Asparagus, Chard & Soba Summer Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Asparagus, Chard & Soba Summer Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce

This recipe is a nice light dish to make on a hot summer night as a meal for 4 people or appetizers for 6 (the recipe makes 12 rolls). You want to make sure you have everything prepped and organized before you start cooking because the individual cook times are very short and as long as you are ready, you can go pretty fast. Once everything is cooked, you can even have everyone make their own rolls (less work for you!).

Pulled Pork

Ginger Ale Pulled Pork

I had a craving for pulled pork, I went to the grocery store and beautiful pork shoulder was on sale… clearly, it was fate. And this recipe definitely hit the spot, cooking low and slow in the crock pot, and made one of the best (and easiest) pulled pork sandwiches I have had.
