Homemade almond milk made at a fraction of the cost of the store bought variety. We use a lot of almond milk at home particularly in breakfast smoothies. While I normally purchase almond milk from the supermarket I decided to give it a go myself at home. It works and tastes great!
Spice rubbed and slow cooked beef chuck with a side of crispy Hasselback potatoes and oven roasted vegies. Great for a warm winter meal!
We think Brussels sprouts cop a bit of an unfair reputation. On their own yes, we agree they’re not the tastiest food out there but serve them with some tasty sides and they come to life. Topped with a hazelnut, cider vinegar and maple syrup dressing this bacon salad is great for a quick and healthy meal.
Kangaroo meat is extremely lean and as a result needs to be cooked quickly and is best served medium rare. Grill or pan fry the fillets, make the dressing in a food processor or Thermomix and feel free to mix things up with the salad ingredients.
Lightly spiced chicken wings, oven baked with a BBQ honey glaze. Great for entertaining or as an appetizer. This recipe calls for the wings to be oven baked but they will taste equally as good (of not a little better) grilled on the barbecue or smoker.
Pulled pork makes a regular appearance at our dinner table and as a result there are plenty of opportunities to change things up and experiment. Pork shoulder is the most popular cut for pulled pork and rightly so. However this time I decided to give pork collar a try.
With a barbecue loving husband who likes to fire up his Weber Smokey Mountain most weekends its my job to come up with salads to compliment the low and slow cooked meats. While I do enjoy my not so traditional cauliflower ‘potato’ salad sometimes you just want the real thing which calls for roasting some potatoes and including some bacon.
The first time I tried buttermilk fried chicken I was really impressed with the taste and texture. It was served in a burger and it was only a matter of time until I tried it at home. It may seem like there are a lot of steps involved but it’s not as complicated as you may think. You will, however, have some very messy benches by the end of it!
Chicken, bacon, cheese and jalapenos. These really do tick a lot of boxes. The jalapenos are stuffed with cheese, cumin, garlic and a hint of lime then wrapped up in a chicken breast that is wrapped with bacon. They can be grilled in the barbecue, baked in the oven or smoked over coals.
Beef cheeks have a deep, rich flavour that deserves more recognition than it currently has. Although they are relatively small in comparison to most cuts associated with barbecue they still require a long low and slow cook. When fully rendered the gelatinous streak that runs through the cheek breaks down making the meat tender and juicy.
