Salty’s Skirt Steak Tacos

steak tacos

Salty is not much of a cook, but when it comes to grilling, the man loves his craft. He also loves his steak, so nothing makes him more eager to help than a delectably marinated piece of beef. Shake throws in her margaritas, I…

Mai Tai

mai tai

My first Mai Tai was not of the artisanal variety. In fact, most Mai Tai’s I’ve had haven’t been. That being said, I still order them! They’re delicious and perfect when you’re missing summer, enjoying summer, on vacation or really whenever you want a…

Poire Noir

This is a delicious dessert sipper. It’s meant to wind down a dinner with wonderful people, riveting conversation and no dishes to worry about. The Poire Noir is easy to produce for a crowd and a great way to show off any sort of…

Citrus Beef with Sesame Soba Noodles

A rich dressing of toasted sesame oil and soy sauce tossed with hearty buckwheat noodles is the perfect base for citrus marinated flatiron steak. Throw on a steamed veggie or five and you have dinner ready in less than 45 minutes. Ingredients Serves 6 …

Just Right for Goldilocks

Meyer lemons have a bit of a bad rap behind the bar these days. They taste like a cross between a traditional lemon and a sweet mandarin orange. For too long this poor fruit was forced into simple syrups with so much sugar, the…

Frito Pie Casserole

Frito Pie Casserole

Frito Pie is one of my cherished childhood foods from camp. Cheesy, crunchy, salty, and satisfying, Frito Pie is quick to make and fun to eat, and you can put as much or as little effort into it as you want. Homemade chili or…

Apples Are Forever

apples are forever

When Ms. Hot Pot came over, we debated apples in cocktails for quite a while. In particular the fact I’ve not really had a whole lot with hard cider OR apples in general that I enjoyed. Fast forward a few weeks and we’ve developed…

Mexican Grilled Cheese

Mexican Grilled Cheese

Tortilla Soup is a household favorite, but I prefer to make a lighter style that sometimes leaves hungry folk wanting more. Last weekend my cousin came to visit for a doggy playdate in the snow, so I decided to make a twist on grilled…

Smoked Applesauce

Smoked applesauce over pork tenderloin

Pork and apples go together magnificently, but I hate store bought applesauce because Ew. To make my own, I cored and smoked apples filled with spicy honey, and then simmered them with beef broth and brandy until soft. The result is a sweet, savory,…

The Wayward Monk

The wayward monk

Sidecars are one of Sauce’s favorite cocktails. This spin on the classic adds some Benedictine for sweetness and a touch of botanicals and apple juice to play off the Cognac. It is a wonderful accompaniment to any sort of Cheese Plate or as a…

Tenderloin Bites

Tenderloin bites

Salty holds up the male end of the household by being a classic meat and potatoes guy, and his favorite snack is all about quality and simplicity. Whether you cheat like us or make the sauce from scratch, this dish is ready in less…

A Viking Voyage

A Viking Voyage cocktail

We called this drink the Viking voyage quite simply because its what we imagine a Viking would have imbibed should they have wound up in the Caribbean! I swear naming cocktails is sometimes harder than coming up with recipes. Side note, Luxardo is a…
