Spicy Pickled Garlic

Garlic is by far my favorite thing in the world next to Bacon, this is a way to pickle up some Spicy Garlic that will last for about a month in the ‘fridge.  I like to add about a tablespoon of Ghost Pepper Powder, which is way more than most people like, it’s a ton of heat, but it makes for a great one Garlic popper snack.

Carne / Pollo Asada Marinade

Since moving to the Southwest, I’ve been addicted to Carne Asada, which is just a think flank steak that’s been marinated for a day or 2 in fresh citrus juice and spices.  It’s such a flavorful meat and the citrus gives it a great flavor that you don’t normally get with the regular oil and vinegar type of marinades.  This marinade will work great with Steak or Chicken, or even thick cut vegetables for the grill. Try it for your next barbecue.

Pretzel Nibblers

I had these appetizers the other night and they are a great appetizer. It’s a nice change up to the normal bread or biscuits before a meal. The place I went to was serving these and a cheese fondue hot pot for dipping them in. This recipe is for making the soft pretzel dough, which wil save you tons of money instead of buying the boxes at the store if you like soft pretzels.

Here’s a recipe for a Bacon Bloody Mary. This is everything you need for breakfast all in one tasty glass.  I tried one of these at this restaurant in Scottsdale called Culinary Dropout.  It’s a neat place that had a great list of cocktails and this was one of them. You can whip one of these up using the Bacon Infused Vodka and garnish with a fresh slice of bacon.
