Smoked Barbecued Brisket with Grilled Poblanos & Onions

I appreciate a 3-ingredient, quick-to-assemble supper just as much as you, and this recipe is certainly not that. But it’d be a crying shame to look a gift steer in the mouth. Back in June, I’d received a brisket certificate from Downtown Home & Garden (part of their Big Green Egg package), which I recently redeemed at Knight’s Market. This … Full recipe post »

Grilled Paella with Chicken & Shellfish

Got any items on your to-do list that you’d like to check-off before the first snow flies? Fly a hot air balloon ride over Pinkney; paddle a canoe down the Huron River at sunset? For me, having friends over for a cookout featuring grilled paella tops the list. Paella is to Spain what risotto is … Full recipe post »

Asian Grilled Shrimp and Tofu with Sriracha-Ginger Cocktail Sauce

Seriously. You can’t go wrong serving these kebobs as an appetizer or main course; your guests will love you. Horseradish (fresh grated preferred) has always been my favorite part of a classic cocktail sauce, but all tasters of the following sauce agreed it would have been a bit much in the following recipe. The lovely … Full recipe post »

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Romesco Sauce

Romesco, romesco where have you been all my life? What’s not to love about a piquant and savory sauce whose primary ingredients are sweet, juicy tomatoes and red bell peppers – especially in September, when these vegetables are at their peak in Michigan. And your waistline will surely appreciate a lusciously rich sauce that’s thickened … Full recipe post »

Chef Alex’s Barbecued Beer-Butter Chicken

As sure as autumn leaves will turn to gold, in three short weeks (Friday evening, Sept. 13), The Ann Arbor Farmers Market will, once again, serve as backdrop for an Evening at the Farmers Market presented by Domino’s for Ozone House Youth and Family Services. This is one of my favorite events of the year, and indulge … Full recipe post »

Grilled Lamb & Eggplant with Sorrel Sauce

What’s with the sweaters and umbrellas? Brrrr. Into the middle of August, some of us feel ripped off by summer. My garden sorrel disagrees. Like lettuce, sorrel is a cool-weather crop, and the sorrel I purchased in early May at The Produce Station is loving these damp days and below-average temperatures. Without a hint of bolting, it’s gifted me several batches … Full recipe post »

Smoked Pork Tenderloin with Cherry Sauce

Duck with Cherry Sauce, Chicken with Cherry Sauce, Whitefish with Cherry Sauce…most certainly, Ice Cream with Cherry Sauce. Why not make a big batch of cherry sauce and freeze it to enjoy through the year? There are many ways of spinning cherries, the great fruit of the Great Lakes, into savory meals. Mary Bilyeu, in … Full recipe post »

Smoked Barbecued Baby Back Ribs

With a sniffle and sigh, I put my old Webber charcoal kettle – mottled with rust and wear – out to pasture last month. I’ve had the grill well over 15 years, and have many fond memories of the get-togethers we’ve co-hosted: smoked pork butts for BQ sandwiches at my son’s graduation party, cedar-planked Copper … Full recipe post »

Beef Brisket Tacos with Grilled Onions & Poblanos

I’m the grill-master in my family; my husband and kids know that the 8 feet of footage surrounding the Weber charcoal kettle and Jenn-Air gas are mine; no trespassing. That hasn’t dissuaded me from suggesting to my husband, Richard, that perhaps he’d like a Big Green Egg (an egg-shaped barbecue smoker) for Father’s Day. After all, I’ve been coveting one for … Full recipe post »

Grilled Chicken Breasts and Strawberries with Balsamic Syrup

“Strawberry Fields Forever” — what inspired the illusive lyrics to one of John Lennon’s most masterful songs, penned in the 1960s? Nothing, really, for according to the words, “nothing is real.” That hasn’t dissuaded millions, perhaps over a billion, people to try decoding the music hoping to shed light on life’s discordance. But does the meaning, in … Full recipe post »

Bourbon-Pepper Flat Iron Steak and Mint Juleps

Bourbon. As deeply carved into the American landscape as George Washington is into Mount Rushmore; as iconic of the American palate as hamburgers, fried chicken and apple pie. Bourbon, to beat the dead mule, is as quintessential to the American spirit as the presentation of homecoming queen at a football game’s half-time, Super Bowl Sunday, … Full recipe post »

Grilled Tuscan Steak

As evenings grow shorter and cool winds disperse the last perfumes of summer, I’m reminded The Ozone House dinner, “An Evening at the Farmers Market,” is just around the corner. The open-air feast will be held this year on Friday, Sept. 7 at 6 p.m., served beneath lights strung high above tables set with wildflowers, … Full recipe post »

Firecracker Flank Steak with Margarita Flavors and Mango Salsa

It’s that time of the year and I’m not talking fireworks; I’m talking the great media grilling  blitz. An hour doesn’t pass without some TV personality, electronic feed, or magazine headline firing off their ultimate recipe for “whatever” on the grill. Recipe overload, no doubt, and why not? Grilling on the Fourth of July is … Full recipe post »

Charlevoix: Bacon-Jam Burger Knock-Off

What inspires many of us of down-state Michiganders to pack our backs and head north each summer? The scratch of sand through toes as we traverse dunes and traipse along water’s edge…endless days evaporating into a purple-pink patina, as the sun sinks into the lake. Yes—certainly—but a few weeks back, Richard and I packed our … Full recipe post »

Balsamic Lamb Ribs with Tomato-Goat Cheese Salad

Haul out a lawn chair and fill a cooler full of ice; hallelujah, the three-day weekend is upon us, officially kicking off the summer. For some, the long weekend begins with cleaning out the grill in preparation for a cookout. Burgers, chicken breasts, fish and beef steaks are the usual suspects for celebrations — common … Full recipe post »
