I can’t tell you how excited I am to be guest posting on Simply Gourmet today.  Sherron and I have been Facebook buddies for about a year or so.  We have a lot in common.  We both love food and photography.  It’s a friendship made in Heaven.  So when Sherron asked if anyone wanted to guest post for her, I jumped at the chance.  I apologize to you now that the photography isn’t spot on like you’re used to seeing.  Sherron’s pictures are drool worthy for sure.

Ingredients you’ll need to make grilled pineapple salsa

  • Garlic cloves
  • Jalapeño
  • Grapeseed oil or olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Cilantro

I had a pineapple that was on the counter calling my name the other night.  So I decided to grill it and make a quick savory salsa with it.  The “mmmms” and “ohhhhs” were flying around the table.  Who knew that a quick sear, some pungent red onion and black beans could transform an ordinary pineapple into something so delish?  I served this salsa over pork tenderloin, but I bet it would be amazing topping a burger, on a barbecued chicken quesadilla or adorning your favorite tortilla chip.  However you decide to use it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Staying at the Top of the Heap

Updated On: Apr 29, 2024

Have you ever heard of SEO?  Ya, me neither until just recently.  It’s Search Engine Optimization.  In other words, it’s how you, as a website or blog, get found by someone searching for “_________” on Google, Bing or Yahoo, etc.

Some food bloggers have it all figured out and are appearing at the top of the search results, even above the heavy hitters like FoodNetwork.com & Allrecipes.com.  How they’ve done it?  I don’t know the specifics but they have obviously mastered the art of SEO.  I, on the other hand, don’t have a team of computer whiz kids hiding in my basement here at FG Headquarters.  Just little old me.  So not only do I cook up something for this blog on a daily basis, write, do my motherly/wifely duties, Mom taxi my kiddos here there and everywhere etc, I also get to be “SEO Girl”.  Sound like fun?  Well, to keep this blog as relevant and accessible as possible I have to figure it all out.

So on my road to SEO savvyness you may notice in future posts that there will be a change in the format of the recipes.  No biggy, really, just fancy shmancy words like “ingredients” and “instructions” will be added.  These words get “crawled” by the Google bots for their new recipe search drill down.  Did you just hear me say “The words get blah blah blah blah blah blah”?  Ya, that’s what I thought.  It’s all a bit much if you ask me, but what’s a girl to do but adapt!

Boeuf Bourguignon

Updated On: Jan 29, 2024

This recipe comes from The Essential New York Times Cookbook by Amanda Hesser .  I received this book for Christmas and this is the first thing I have made from it.  Not for a lack of recipes, but rather from an inability to narrow down to one thing.  This is a compilation of recipes from the New York Times from the past 150 years.  No, that wasn’t a typo, 150 years.  The book is huge and if anyone ever breaks into my house, I could probably mame them with it.  It really is large and heavy.  One of my Twitter friends tweeted that it weighed over 5 lbs and the only reason he knew that was he was 5 lbs over on his checked luggage and when the book was removed, he was able to successfully check his bag without paying extra.

Ok, back to the recipe.  I’m making this for an early Valentine’s dinner with Buttered Egg Noodles, Haricots Verts and an Apple Tarte Tatin for dessert.  I can hardly wait!  By the way, if you’ve never made a Tarte Tatin before, you should do it.  It’s a super easy upside down apple pie that is easy to make, delicious to taste and candy for the eyes.  I’ve made it with Pears as well as Italian Plums and both were scrumptious!  Give the Boeuf Bourguignon a try and let me know what you think!  Buy the book too….you deserve it!

Baby Backs w/ Peach BBQ Sauce & Potato Salad & Blueberry Pie – OH MY!

Updated On: Apr 29, 2024

I am having one of those days where I just feel the need to be in the kitchen baking and preserving and just plain cooking up a storm.  Swirling around the kitchen in my cute little apron sounds divine!  So, on the docket for the weekend is a barbeque with my Dad that will include his fave of all faves – Blueberry Pie.  Oh yes, and his other fave – Ribs.  I think we all love each of those equally around here.  This time though, I’m going to make my own BBQ sauce.  I’ve always made a delicious smokey bbq sauce, but this time it’s going to be a Fresh Peach sauce.  My mouth keeps watering just thinking about it.  The sweet tangy sauce on the perfectly cued ribs.  Oh boy!  Then my always requested Potato Salad to cool down your mouth and a slice of Blueberry pie with a scoop of French Vanilla Ice Cream to finish it all off.  Yowza!  It’s like Food Porn!
