Chicken Fajitas

Recipes posted a year ago:

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo – so what better recipe to post today than one inspired by the great flavors of Mexican and Southwest cuisine.  While purists may complain that fajita traditionally refers to a specific cut of beef, no one can argue that the word today has been broadened to include any number of meats seasoned, grilled, and mixed with sautéed bell peppers and onions and served with a healthy helping of guacamole.

This recipe needs to marinate overnight, so you’ll want to run out and get the ingredients today so that you can have these ready to serve at your fiesta tomorrow!

Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I was looking for a quick weeknight recipe to take advantage of the warmer weather we are finally starting to experience here in the Pacific Northwest.  Rather than fall back on the standby of using a pre-mixed herb blend from the spice drawer, I decided to try something using fresh ingredients instead.  The resulting lemon pepper marinade was great with pork chops, and would be equally tasty with chicken or fresh shrimp and scallops.

Garlic Mint Shoulder Roast

Recipes posted a year ago:

With me working lots of long hours the past six months, we seem to have had a bit of a pattern emerge with our weekends – Sunday has become “roast day.”  It turns out to be the one day where we seem to have enough time to get a large cut of meat fully thawed (starting the night before) and cooked on the grill or in the oven.  This past Sunday was no exception…

With spring finally “officially” here, and with a mix of weather that certainly shows promise of an end to the gray and gloom, we also see the trees, flowers, and herbs showing signs of new life.  Among those herbs is mint – whose flavor is traditionally paired with lamb this time of year.  Rather than lamb, I decided to give mint a twist and try it with one of the elk shoulder roasts we had in the freezer from this past fall.

Fennel Rhubarb Pork Roast

Recipes posted a year ago:

Last weekend, with spring slowly trying to make an appearance around here, I had rhubarb on my mind.  And since we had our friends Sonya and Chris coming up for dinner, it was a perfect time to try something entirely new (we knew they’d be game for it).  We had a pork roast thawing, and the tangy character of rhubarb was a perfect pairing for the roast – along with a few other additions.

Date and Mushroom Stuffed Elk Roast

Recipes posted a year ago:

This recipe came about while standing in the doorway of the pantry tapping my fingers on the door frame thinking, “I should really use up some of these dates…and what the heck am I going to use these dried chanterelles for?”  After a little rifling through the spice cabinet, I had some notes scribbled on a sticky-note, and the ingredients were on the counter.

Simple Pork Roast

Recipes posted a year ago:

We recently took delivery of a heritage hog from April Joy Farm, and I wanted to cook one of the roasts using a recipe that would let the character of the meat shine, without a bunch of other flavors competing for center stage.  Here’s what I ended up with.

Barbecued Thai Pork

Sorry for being slow on the posts.  We went to Seattle this last weekend.  We had a great time and ate some Chinese food and some Moroccan food.  It is always fun to try dishes traditional of other countries.  It gives us a lot of inspiration! We went to the Space Needle of course and also Pike Street Market, although it was a bummer we weren’t cooking ourselves last weekend as I definitely would have been buying some fish to watch the guys toss it back and forth.  Next time!
