Last minute snack mix

Bought all the stuff to make Nuts & Bolts. Made it once (with Durango BBQ it was tasty). There was still enough of all the ingredients left to make one more round. Awesome, I thought, I’ll just have to try this again with a different blend.

One rainy day I decided to do just that. Lo and behold the only ingredients left were the three chex cereals. Somehow the other goodies (cheese crackers, pretzels, nuts) had mysteriously disappeared!

If you find yourself in a similar plight (and you don’t want to go to the store to buy the extra ingredients again) let this inspire you:

chex & parm

3 cups of each Chex cereal

2 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted

2 tablespoons Grill Seasoning

3 tablespoons olive oil

4 teaspoons rice vinegar

2 teaspoons Mustard 101

Parmesan for topping at the end

In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Mix in Grill Seasoning, olive oil, vinegar, and mustard. Pour this liquid over your cereal and stir to coat.

Bake in oven at 250ºF for an hour, stirring every 20 minutes.

Take out of the oven and grate Parmesan on top. Eat as soon as it cools down.

Happy snacking!

Roasted Potatoes

Simple. Easy. Delicious.

What more could you ask for in a side dish?

Here’s how ya make some killer roasted potatoes:

Preheat oven to 450°F. Peel or don’t peel your potatoes (it’s your choice, listen to your heart). Cut into wedges or cubes. Throw into a bowl and coat with olive oil. Sprinkle on the seasoning of your choice, and mix ’em up so they’re good and covered (we like Grill Seasoning or Oikogeneia or Durango BBQ, oh heck, we’ll put any of our blends on roasted potatoes!). Spread the potatoes out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes.

Let cool a little and ENJOY!

Grilled Corn

If I could write a love song about corn I would.

Cream it, grill it, pan fry it, throw it in a stew.

No matter what you do, I’ll love it. And I might even love you.

It’s an epic sort of love, I posted about grilled corn last year and I’ll probably post about it next year too.

I mean, look at this beauty:

Grilled Corn

Talk about tasty. YUM.

We pulled back the husk, stripped out those little white hairs, rubbed on some olive oil, and then lovingly sprinkled Grill Seasoning on all the cobs. Then we wrapped them back into their husks and tied them with string to keep all that goodness inside:

Then we threw those puppies on the grill and let the magic happen.

*sigh* Isn’t summer marvelous?

Let’s stay this way forever,

Isn’t that pretty?

It’s pretty tasty.

And easy too, just pull back the husk and get rid of all those hairs. Coat the corn with a little olive oil and sprinkle with the blend of your choice! We put our Mediterranean Oil Blend on half the ears and Grill Seasoning on the other half. Fold the husk back up and tie with culinary string. Now they are ready for the grill!

If you don’t want to mess around with the husk you can husk the corn completely. Once you have oiled and seasoned them, wrap the ears up in aluminum foil and throw them on the grill.

Dry rub ribs

July 4th 2014 RIBS

Mmmmmmm ribs. What more can we say?

Here’s how we make our dry rub ribs:

Preheat oven to 250 F.

Coat ribs with olive oil then coat with the rub of your choice. We decided to do a third with our grill seasoning, a third with cocoa nib rub, and the other third with espresso steak rub.

Place the ribs on a cookie sheet, cover with aluminum foil and place in the oven for 2 hours. And it is as simple as that!

We did this the night before we were going to be eating them so we placed them in the refrigerator after the 2 hours. The next day we threw the ribs on the grill to heat them back up and give them that special taste you can only get from a grill!
