Blackberry Muffins

By Elise Bauer

Blackberry Muffins

Pssst… you know what the secret is to making the best blackberry muffins?

Muffins that are rich, tender, and loaded with blackberries?

No, it’s not the butter (though butter makes everything better IMHO).

If your guess is it has something to do with the type of berries, you’re close. Wild blackberries do make the best pies, muffins, and cakes. But you can only get those a couple months of the year.

Easy patatas bravas with garlic aioli

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

Easy patatas bravas-7

sponsoredpost

Patatas bravas is a Spanish dish, and it’s always something I gravitate towards when I go out for tapas – which admittedly isn’t often, but it should be. This stuff is good. If you’re not aware, patatas bravas is basically crispy potatoes served in a spicy tomato sauce… which kind of sounds a bit boring. But trust me, it’s amazing.

As usual, when preparing for this recipe, I read about twenty different patatas bravas recipes online – and as usual, I realised that everyone has a different way …read more

Meet Giro

By sean After losing Reese in January, we took a break. We needed time to grieve, and to live our lives dog-free for just a little bit. We had some travel planned, first a week in Mexico with friends, and then a trip to LA and Orange County to visit family and attend a conference at the beginning of April. So, we agreed not to rush into getting another dog until after that was over.
While visiting my mother, one evening dpaul and I were walking her dog. “I miss walking a dog,” he said, to which I replied, “yes, but I don’t …read more

Grilled Shrimp Louie – Dressing Up a Classic

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

I don’t do a lot of salad dressing videos, since it’s pretty much just adding things to a bowl, but when that dressing is going on a grilled shrimp Louie, I’ll make an exception. By the way, this is usually done with crab, but I think the smoky, grilled shrimp are a great summertime twist.


This is my take on a classic Louie dressing, and as with all such recipes, you’ll need to taste and adjust for acid, salt, and heat. Just be sure to wait until the dressing is nice and cold before tasting. You’ll get a more accurate …read more

Grilled Mexican Street Corn (Elotes)

By Megan Keno

Mexican Street Corn

Whenever we go back to my husband’s hometown for any of the summer holidays – Flag Day, July 4th, or Labor Day – there is always a little taco cart sitting at the park with the rest of the food trucks. This one cart always a line stretching out in front and around the corner with people waiting to get their mitts on classic street tacos, burritos, and grilled Mexican street corn (elotes) slathered in sauce.

There is absolutely no way to eat this messy corn on the cob delicately, but usually you’re not alone since half of the other people …read more

Halloumi and portobello burgers with homemade peri peri sauce

Halloumi and portobello burgers with homemade peri peri sauce-7

sponsoredpost

If you live in the UK (or one of thirty – thirty!! – other countries), chances are when you hear the words ‘peri peri sauce’, your mind will immediately go to a certain restaurant famous for its Portuguese food. That place definitely inspired these halloumi and portobello burgers – it’s a combination I’ve loved for years. The salty halloumi and juicy portobello mushrooms just go so well with the spicy peri peri sauce.

Next Up: Something with Grilled Shrimp

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

Just a little heads-up that Friday’s post will be up a little later in the day than usual, due to a sudden and unusual problem with my camera. My Canon T3i just started giving me “Movie recording has been stopped automatically” error messages after a few seconds of filming, and I wasn’t able to finish the video. Apparently, I need a faster card, which is weird since this one has been working for months. I know shockingly little about cameras, so if you have any additional info, or advice, please share. Thank you, and stay tuned!

Fig and fennel salad with rice noodles

Fig and fennel salad-4

If you’re looking at this salad and thinking that it looks much fancier than my usual recipes, you’d be totally right – it’s not my own recipe. Gold star for you, you’ve been paying attention. In fact, this gorgeous fig and fennel salad was dreamed up by chef Georgina Davies, who I saw demonstrating the dish at an event in London a couple of weeks ago.

The event was hosted by Robert Welch, to celebrate the one millionth sale of their Signature …read more

Grilled Mojo Beef – Rhymes with “Everybody Say Ho!”

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

I got a request for a Cuban-style mojo marinade recently, which sounded like something I’d enjoy making, but to be honest I wasn’t exactly sure what it was. I knew I was probably pronouncing it wrong, but other than that, I couldn’t remember having it anywhere.


I’d seen “mojo” sauces before, but they were at Spanish restaurants, and seemed to be chili-based; so I did a little of research, and of course, every single recipe I looked at was different. They all had garlic, citrus, and olive oil, but after that, the spices and seasonings varied greatly. So, this is …read more
