July is National Blueberry Day and today (July 30) is National Cheesecake Day so I thought, hey, let’s surprise the hubby with his favorite dessert. I’m not a cheesecake fan but he loves nothing better than a rich slice of New York-style cheesecake. Add some fresh blueberries and he’s in heaven.
I love Cozumel, Mexico. I adore the sea life, the coral reefs, the beautiful blue colors of the ocean, the people, the food and of course, the TEQUILA! I’m not a huge fan of sipping high quality tequila like my hubby, but I do enjoy a good margarita. And what better day than today, July 24, National Tequila Day, to celebrate with an Instant Pot chicken dish flavored with tequila and lime juice. My mouth is watering just waiting for it to finish!
Hello, Instant Pot friends! Something that really surprised me about this cool kitchen appliance was how great it does BBQ-style meals. To get really good, fall off the bone, lick your fingers clean ribs, you probably think you need to either slave away over a hot stove, slow-cooking the ribs to perfection OR spend hours tending to a smoker while the meat carefully cooks.
“I like cooking with wine. Sometimes I add it to the food too.” Enjoying a glass of wine while preparing a meal, and then adding some to the recipe is a great way to not only enjoy cooking (because who doesn’t enjoy a good glass of wine?!) but also add depth of flavor to a recipe. With this brisket, merlot add some fantastic hints of dry wine without overpowering the richness of the meat.
