Happy Labour Day weekend good foodie friends….
Here is another great list of great spots brought to us by Eater.com, thank you Eater for another must do list of spots to try….

It’s been a great summer and its still hot out there….Eater.com has come up with a list of great spots for you to try while on your travels…. And lets be honest, who doesn’t love ice cream?!

Words from the Eater.com writer:
“It’s hot out there, and as you celebrate your last long weekend of Summer 2013, you may be inclined to get some ice cream. Eater has rounded up 16 worthy ice cream candidates that opened across the country over the past year or so, and you have a wide array of options.”

“Like ice cream sandwiches? Head to the Baked Bear in San Diego to get custom built ones. Floats? How about Michael White’s the Butterfly in New York City? Boozey ice cream? Fifty Licks in Portland. Gelato? The Art of Flavors in Las Vegas. Crazy flavors? Izzy’s in Minneapolis is your best bet. Any possible combination of cupcakes and ice cream (cupcake sundaes, cupcake sandwiches, cupcake shakes, cupcake etc.)? Sprinkles Ice Cream in Dallas. And the list goes on.”

Meyer Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake


I was thinking about this delectable recipe as I was looking for a Meyer lemon tree… I thing the minute I can get ahold of Meyer lemons this excellent coffee cake is back in the oven!

bcfoodieblogger

Good afternoon great foodie friends…..
It has been sometime since my last blog post…. Busy lives get in the way and when it’s with your family, it is a good thing in my book! They are my inspiration!

Meyer lemon blueberry coffee cake

Meyer lemons are a treat and seasonal so when you see them, buy them!
This little gem is well known as

the chefs choice

A Meyer lemon is not as tart as a lemon and not as sweet as an orange. In fact the Meyer is a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange.
What is a Meyer lemon and where did it come from?
The Meyer lemon flesh is a light orange-yellow color, with juice sweeter than that of most lemons. This compact dwarf citrus tree grows well in most U.S. climates, but is not often commercially cultivated. The main reason for this is its…

Pulled Pork – Wow (gluten free rub and sauces)


Pulled Pork- melt in your mouth goodness

Happy Wednesday good foodie friends, I had a dream……
So I thought it was time to give it a go!

This process is time consuming as many will tell you but it isn’t overly complicated…..
First let me say that all BBQ recipes are not all created equal and that taking your time on the front side and finding the right rub, the right sauce and the right method will pay you back in culinary magic!

I know that I repeat this time and time again but believe it to the core, first you must start from the heart and the soul and use that a your “cooking fuel” then throw in a cup full of confidence as well as a cup full of patience (especially with this recipe), you are sure to end up with a crown pleaser!

Ok, here we go!

20130828-083938.jpg

What you will need:
*Approx 8-10 lbs of Pork butt /shoulder (you can use more or less) bone in or out -it doesn’t matter
*Approx 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (home made or store bought, I used the award winning House of Q -Slow smoke gold – and it was worth it!)
*Approx 1- 1 1/2 cups of “rub” use your favorite ( again I used House of Q house rub, and it was fantastic!)
*Smoking chips
*QB BBQ sauce (QB =when enough is enough) for mixing in the pulled pork after you have pulled it.
*Food thermometer

What you will do:
*Slather the pork all over with the BBQ sauce
*Now cover the whole pork butt with the rub (pat it in to ensure it sticks and covers the whole pork butt. I also did this step the night before, covered it with foil and put it in the fridge) you can do this for as little as 15-30 minutes before if you would rather.

20130828-084337.jpg

20130828-084409.jpg

*Soak your wood chips for at least 60 mins (I did for a few hours) to ensure that they won’t catch fire.
Now put your chips in a foil pack and poke a few small holes in the top for smoking.
*Start your BBQ or smoker (I used my BBQ as it is accurate and has the ability to smoke) and set it for between 225-250 F.
What you will do is take your grill off and place the foil pouch on the plate below over the heated section of your BBQ)
Now put your pork roasting pan on the “non” heated side of your BBQ (not over the direct heat) and close the BBQ/smoker and let the magic happen.

20130828-085237.jpg

I shouldn’t have left this comment so late but I credit the main bulk of this recipe to the BBQ master – BBQ Brian from the House of Q! I followed his advice and did a few things as most experienced cooks will and tweaked it to make it a little of my own! Thank you as always Brian for your great sauces, rub and advice!
I also want to mention at this time that I used Gelderman Farms Pork butt. The quality of the pork from this local family farm is absolutely noticeable and the difference in taste is immediately detected.

Back to the recipe…. This is now where the magic happens…. The best advice I received from Brian was

Patience

Now temperature (s) lead the rest of the path… I smoked the pork for approx. 2 1/2 hours but that was determined by the temperature reaching approx 145 F. Once the internal temperature of the roast reaches this 145 F you no longer need to smoke as the roast will technically no longer accept any more.
Leave the roast on the BBQ until it reaches approx 160 F or so…..

Now transfer the roast to a proper roasting pan ensuring that you retain and transfer all of the drippings (the flavor magic) into the roasting pan and cover completely with foil. It is your choice now if you want to continue cooking on the BBQ but I did move my pork to the oven and used the same temperature.
Now did I mention “patience”?
The roast now needs several hours to continue on its magic tasty path… It needs to reach an internal temperature of 190 F or above (this took my roast approx 8 1/2 hours). The rule of thumb is approx 60 – 90 minutes per lb.
Patience can’t be mentioned enough and is crucial to the end result …. So resist opening the oven to much (though you can turn the roast over for the first few hours if you want so that the roast evenly cooks, I only did it twice, once during the BBQ to oven transfer and once more… The I left the house for server all hours)

Once the Roast has reached 190 F or higher pull it out of the oven or BBQ, leave covered and let it cool down and rest.
Now remove but retain the liquid from the roasting pan for later and start the process of “pulling” your pork. Use forks or a fork and tongs and watch how perfectly the pork pulls apart! This is when you know you have had success…..

20130828-091913.jpg

Now I added back in some of the drippings (the amount should be regulated based on how moist or dry your pork is… Now I added some House of Q -Apple Butter BBQ sauce (which I have read that it was created for this very purpose / dish as well as some “jerk” BBQ sauce for an added kick.
One big thing to mention is that both the House of Q rub and sauces are all Gluten Free!

I thought a perfect way to serve my first try at pulled pork was sliders…..
I made a simple slaw to pair with my slider and to add that genuine feel to a pulled pork sandwich….

The Slaw

What you will need:
*Use either a fresh pre packed slaw (no dressing) or 1 small head of green and red cabbage
*1 carrot
*3 tablespoons mayonnaise or buttermilk
*3 tablespoons of cider vinegar
*1 tablespoon of sugar (I use organic raw)
*Sea salt and fresh black pepper to taste.

What to do:
Cut the slaw with a sharp knife and julienne the carrots.
In a separate bowl mix the the other ingredients until smooth. Now add the dressing to the slaw.

20130829-105108.jpg

The Sandwich:
*Use your favorite bun (I used slider buns which are available almost anywhere these days)
*Spread a little Apple butter BBQ sauce or your favorite sauce on each bun.
*Top your bottom bun with a healthy amount of pulled pork. Drizzle a little BBQ sauce over the pork and now top that with Slaw…… Put on the top and enjoy!

Foods To Help Improve Your Mood?!


Happy Tuesday Good foodie friends….
Every so often I like to share some healthy facts and find that the research is very interesting let alone educating. Sometimes we all need a reminder of some healthy facts to help us “reset” or work towards more healthy eating habits.
This list shows just a handful of healthy options that can help put you in a better mood while being healthier at the same time.

Did you know that some foods can actually help improve your mood. Here are some great foods that can help you feel both healthy and happy!

1.Salmon
This fish is full of omega-3 fatty acids which is important for brain health and can help lift your mood as well as improve your memory. Also salmon is rich in the vitamin B12 which research shows may help in production of serotonin. Serotonin is one of the neurotransmitters responsible for good mood.

20130819-231356.jpg

2.Turkey
Turkey contains the two amino acids tryptophan and tyrosine. These can help make important neurotransmitters that help control your mood including serotonin, dopamine, and and norepinephrine.

3.Chocolate
It may not be a coincidence if you tend to reach for chocolate when you are feeling blue! The combination of mood-elevating chemicals found in chocolate, such caffeine, theobromine, tyrosine, and tryptophan, reallly can help make you happier! I know it helps me! Trust me when I say that this doesn’t refer to a corner store chocolate bar, try to eat dark chocolate with a higher pure cocoa % for best results.

20130819-231546.jpg

4.Walnuts
Walnuts, along with most other nuts and seeds, are a good source of magnesium which influences production of serotonin. A lack of magnesium may cause depression, anxiety, irritability, and insomnia so it’s important that we get enough. It also effects overall energy levels.

5.Brazil Nuts
Brazil nuts are one of the best sources of the mineral selenium. In recent years, people have been consuming less selenium, but eating just three Brazil nuts a day can provide your recommended daily amount (RDA).

Studies have shown increased depression, irritability, anxiety and tiredness in people with low selenium levels – so by just eating a few Brazil nuts a couple of times a week might help to improve your mood.

20130819-231503.jpg

6.Sardines
Sardines
Studies have shown that people who are deficient in omega 3 may be more susceptible to depression and low mood. The omega 3 fatty acids found in oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel and sardines, make up a large percentage of our brain tissue.

‘About 60 per cent of the dry weight of the brain is fat, with about 30 per cent of that in the form of omega 3,’ says Dr Eva Cyhlarova, head of research at the Mental Health Foundation. Eating a diet high in omega 3 will also keep your brain healthy and improve mood by keeping brain cells flexible, so the brain’s messaging chemicals – neurotransmitters – can work more effectively.

7.Oats
Oats are an effective mood booster. This is because they have a low glycaemic index (GI), as they slowly release energy into our bloodstream rather than by a quick rush that soon dips. This helps to keep your blood sugar and mood stable. The mineral selenium in oats can also help mood by regulating the function of the thyroid gland.

8.Lentils
Lentils are a fantastic kitchen staple. They’re a complex carbohydrate, so like bananas, they have the added benefit of helping to increase the brains production of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin. This results in a calmer, happier state of mind with less anxiety.

Stabilising your blood sugar level is important to maintain a stable mood. They are also high in folate – deficiencies in folate have been linked to depression and mania. Lentils can also boost your iron levels – which will give you energy and therefore put you in a better mood.

9.. Spinach
Certain deficiencies in B vitamins have been linked to depression – serotonin production can actually be hindered by low B vitamin levels. Important B vitamins to look out for include folate, vitamins B3, B6 and B12. Eating leafy green vegetables – such as spinach or broccoli, for example – will help keep your levels up.

10.Eggs
Egg yolks are one of only a few food sources of vitamin D. We get most of our vitamin D from the sun, but during the winter months a lack of sunshine (especially in the Northwest) can lead to a vitamin D deficiency and mood related disorders such as seasonal affective disorder and depression. Eggs are also rich in B-vitamins which can help the way the neurotransmitters of the brain send signals, which helps govern mood. If you can try to use Organic or Farm eggs…

What I am sharing is based on research by nutritionists and doctors and found from a few sources that I have come to trust. I by no means am a nutritionist or a doctor so the information I share is simply to help inform my readers.

I hope you enjoy and feel better!
