• Chipotle Molasses BBQ Sauce

    June 11, 2013DishinandDishes

    Barbecue sauce is really easy to make at home. I remember my mom stirring together ketchup and spices when we were growing up. She would add leftover roast that was so tender she just shredded it and added it into the sauce. We piled it high on soft buns and it made a simple and…

  • A Tale of Two Salsas – Featuring Guajillo Chiles

    May 18, 2013DishinandDishes

    I have an addiction for salsas. I seek them out at Mexican restaurants and always want to know what “secret” salsas they’re hiding and not bringing out unless asked for. Many places have specialty salsas that you can only get when asked.  My salsa fetish has me on a quest during this season of my life to try out…

  • Lean Mean Game Day Chili – Superbowl!

    January 30, 2013DishinandDishes

    We love a good chili recipe at our house on game days, especially for the Superbowl.  I love to cook up a pot, put out the fixings, and leave it on the counter all day long in a crock pot to keep warm.  If I make it ahead of time, I can relax, watch the…

  • Easy Guacamole

    September 17, 2012DishinandDishes

    Now, I have two issues with guacamole. One is that you really need to make it at the last possible moment.  If not, the avocado oxidizes and begins to turn brown.  Lime juice helps a little, but you don’t want the taste overpowered by too much lime juice, so it’s best to make it at…

  • Bacon Green Chile “Jam”

    August 8, 2012DishinandDishes

    Savory is the inspiration for this Bacon Onion Green Chile Jam recipe. I’m obsessed with savory. Upon reaching 40, my tastebuds somehow switched from  obsessively sweet and sugary to insanely in-love with savory. Give me the choice between a cupcake and a handful of smoked almonds, I’ll take the almonds every time now. Add to…

    Recently my Mom-in-law gifted us with a smoker she had hanging around in her shed, and wasn’t using. I must confess, I (we) have had no experience whatsover with a smoker, so this weekend, we gave it our first go. This is how we made our first BBQ rub ..ever. And I thought it was…
