I saw this very briefly on a tv cooking show and went off to find the recipe. Of course, it wasn’t available online unless you paid $35 for a 6 month subscription (yeah RIGHT!) so I made it up as I went along.
The seemingly disparate flavours combine amazingly well, and the sour cream seems to pull it all together at the end.
Of course, it could be made non dairy by leaving out the sour cream (and optional butter)and I think it would still work. If you were to do this I would cut down the heat in the relish, as the cream acts to tone this down at the end.
This is not as much work as it seems – while you need to prepare some stuff ahead of time (the marinade, the relish) it’s a perfect recipe if you’re going to home for an afternoon doing other things anyway. Also, the relish will keep in the fridge for at least a week, so you can always make extra and serve with other dishes.
These quantities serve 2. Continue reading

Banana's Foster: Serves Two….has alcohol in it though, although most of it burns off in the cooking process.
(these directions are not exact…we found that measuring them made the dessert not as much fun to make, and depending on the temp of the burner it always turns out a little different each time regardless…
Please be very careful, this is a FLAMING dessert, meaning the alcohol you add flames, making a great show!)
A simple way to make an easy meal tangy and delicious. Continue reading
My dad taught me this one. Awesome for a quick dinner with boiled, mashed, or any other kind of potatoes and a salad (especially a nice garlicky Ceasar). Living in beef country, we buy steaks on sale (good cuts are sometimes marked down as cheap as or cheaper than ground beef), and wrap, bag, and freeze until we're ready to eat them. (Freezing also tenderizes them a bit, so even cheaper cuts are really gooood.) Slicing the steak and putting in the garlic is optional, but why would you omit it? It's sooooo goooood. You can also add pepper right before you do the salt, but we find it detracts from the garlic and beef and salt flavors. Continue reading
