Old Bay Crab Cakes with Tzatziki and Minced Red Onions with Sautéed Summer Vegetables
Crab cakes are a quintessential dish in Maryland, where I hail from. But, for me, it’s that Old Bay zing that really makes them taste like home. When you pair the crab and Old Bay flavors with refreshing tzatziki and light summer veggies, it’s heaven in each bite!
Jambalaya with Roast Broccoli with Garlic Chips
Jambalaya is an incredibly flavorful dish that boasts awesome texture, which lends for a very satisfying mouthfeel with each bite. To make this meal complete, it comes with delicious, garlicky roasted broccoli, which complements both the Andouille and Cajun flavors.
Carolina Barbecue Chicken Leg Quarters with Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread, Creamed Kale and Spinach topped with Fried Shallots
This dish is bringing you all the tang and zing you know and love in Carolina barbecue. And just like my favorite barbecue joints, I’m serving up mine with some cornbread and creamed greens, though I’ve given them some spicy, cheesy, and crunchy updates because that’s how I roll.
Maple Bourbon Peanut Ribs with Kale quinoa salad
Low and slow is my favorite way to cook ribs, especially baby backs. And when it comes to flavoring them, you can’t beat the salty sweetness you get in this mouthwatering combination of maple, peanut, and oaky caramel-vanilla bourbon. The ribs are perfectly accented by nutty quinoa mixed with light and bright beans and veggies.
Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese with Roasted broccoli and garlic chips
Buffalo wings meets macaroni & cheese. Need I say more? But if I had to, think of the Buffalo wing tanginess you know and love incorporated into the delightful ooey gooeyness of mac & cheese, all complemented perfectly by the garlicky crunch of roasted broccoli. Yum, yum, and yum!
Cajun Roasted Vegetable Mac & Cheese with Mexican street corn (elote) off the cob
Move aside boring old regular macaroni & cheese! This dish will see your ooey gooey creamy cheesiness and raise it colorful and bright veggies topped with a Cajun kick. Pair that with creamy, chipotle-seasoned off-the-cob Mexican street corn, and you’ve got a festival for your taste buds.
Mac & Cheese with BBQ Pulled Pork with Stewed Kale
This dish brings the flavors of your favorite barbecue joint home. You’ve got creamy macaroni & cheese embellished with savory and sweet barbecue pulled pork for the win. And to round out this perfectly rich entrée are some quintessential smoked greens. The smoky acidity of the kale offers the perfect complement.
Bacon, Cheese, and Ketchup Meatloaf with Barbecue Baked Beans and Mashed Sweet Potatoes
My meatloaf is an homage to what my mom used to cook for me when I was a kid. It’s nearly her recipe, just jazzed up a bit with some sharp cheddar cheese and yummy bacon. (You can’t go wrong with bacon.) I’ve accompanied it with some smoky, savory, and sweet barbecue beans and creamy mashed sweet potatoes. It’s the perfect plate of comfort food for a school night or any night!
Short Rib “Poutots” with Sweet & Sour Brussels Sprouts
This is my take on poutine, a dish popular in Canada and some northern states. I’ve replaced the fries with crispy tater tots and topped them with braised short ribs and traditional cheese curds. The dish is finished off with a rich red wine and balsamic vinegar gravy and paired with umami-laden sweet & sour Brussels sprouts.
Brat Potato Dog with Green Bean Fries
I’m bringing the stadium home with this awesomely indulgent recipe. I’ve taken good ol’ beer brats with peppers and onions and jazzed them way up, replacing the bun with my version of a loaded baked potato and adding a beer cheese sauce on top. And I swapped regular fries for green bean fries for something a little different. Yep, that just happened.
BBQ Chicken Lasagna with Lemon and Garlic Snap Peas
I like to think of this dish as a late-night college recipe that grew up into a pretty stellar barbecue dish. It’s lasagna but not as you know it. Rather, it’s layers of creamy cheese, sweet barbecue chicken, collards, and onions, all topped with more barbecue sauce and cheese. And it’s paired with garlicky lemon snap peas for a light, acidic crunch.
