Ground sumac adds a hint of citrus notes to this versatile sweet spice rub.
My wife loves teriyaki beef jerky. While I was busy making my sweet and hot Dr. Pepper and Jalapeno jerky I thought I’d be the super awesome husbandy-type guy I am and make some that she could enjoy as well.
So, I did my homework. I watched a PILE of videos. Read a bunch of websites. I kept hitting posts about Dr. Pepper jerky and was intrigued. Dr. Pepper and jalapenos? Sounded like a sweet heat style jerky to my brain.
I love potato chips.
There. I said it. They’ve been an eternal weakness in my life for as long as I can remember. There’s just something about that crunch.
They’re not something wildly complicated to make, but they’re cheap and easier to just buy, right? Well, yes. But it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it at home anyway.Continue reading “Air Fryer Potato Chips – Worth It?”
Sadly, I have never been to Nova Scotia.
I have never had the chance to have an authentic Halifax donair.
But I’ve made it to New Brunswick and had donairs there a few times. Greco’s does a good job, to my tastebuds at least. Nova Scotians would probably scream blasphemy at that.
Anyway, that will have to be my frame of reference until I can get a Blue Noser over to taste these. (Luckily, I have family who qualify!)
So, what the heck is a donair?Continue reading “Lockdown-friendly Halifax-style Donairs (Travel to Nova Scotia Not Required)”
Shortbread. I don’t get the name. It’s not bread, it’s a cookie! But nomenclatures aside, they’re freakin’ delicious.
I’ve always enjoyed when Christmas rolled around and store shelves would be filled with boxes of little shortbread fingers. Probably the best thing to come out of Scotland, right after bagpipes.
It all started innocently enough. Walking past the cooler section at Costco, hoping to spot a big container of peach-mango salsa. (Spoiler: did not find it.) But there it was … Good Foods “Queso-style Dip.”
When you live in a home with the lactose-intolerant, you pay attention to any non-dairy cheese-like product.
That’s how it all started.Continue reading “Think All Vegan Things Suck? That’s Not The Queso!”
These are probably my wife’s favourite cookies. And they’re really, really easy to make.
My daughter has also discovered, through various attempts, that it’s also really easy to create things that do not resemble cookies through carefully not measuring things or quadrupling the amounts of one ingredient. It’s really just best not to ask about those.
But for the record, quadrupling the amount of cocoa powder results in a substance that almost resembles fudge. Almost. It was … uh … interesting.Continue reading “Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Oatmeal Cookies”
As soon as I tried The Greatest Dinner Rolls Ever, I knew this would happen.
Those buns were exactly the kind of soft, fluffy bread that would make an amazing cinnamon roll.
And oh yes, they did!
The best part? They’re really, really easy to make. They just take time … like any double-rising bread product.Continue reading “Big Fluffy Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosted Cinnamon Rolls”
So, as good as the soft, fluffy milk buns were, I found one that’s even BETTER!
I am a solid believer in Tangzhong now. The difference in the texture in the finished bun is major. They’re like the softest, most tender, amazing bakery buns you’ve ever bought in a store – except you made them yourself!
Yes, that’s a lot of hype – but the buns live up to it.Continue reading “The Greatest Dinner Rolls Ever. No, SERIOUSLY.”
