For this month’s Taste&Create Seasonal Edition we had the Taste&Create Gets Grilling event where only grill/broil/bbq recipes are made. As we did last month, only 3 other participants turned out, and to keep my sanity and be able to whole heartedly concentrate on my blog and Rezimo.com, I am ending this event.
Don’t worry, the regular Taste&Create event will still be held – we are blooming and growing and it’s great! Next month we will have a new home at tasteandcreate.com – you can go check out the site and tell me what you think. It’s till under construction…
Anyways, to the round-up! Continue Reading »
The goal was to find a recipe on my partner’s blog that was grill/bbq/broil related.
While searching through Katie’s recipes I was caught off guard by her Wild Boar Chops. Wild boar in the US????? I know they still have it in Germany, but I never thought we had them in the US.
So, since I have a game-specializing butcher shop about 3 blocks away (where I always buy my meat), I got excited. I even told the butcher’s wife about the recipe. And, you will never guess that they use a very similar recipe to marinade their wild boar chops (minus the lemon and pepper, and plus some fresh oregano).
Now, I didn’t have access to huge chops like Katie did, but I made the same amount of marinade and did everything according to directions (but broiled in my oven instead of grilled).
MMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMM
stop reading this post (well, maybe go get the recipe first)
go get wild boar now…
Thank you Katie for introducing me to something new!

Now, I’d like to get to the Spring Round-Up!
We had 4 participants and this is what they came up with: Continue Reading »
This month’s theme was Spring, and in sticking with that I chose to make my partner’s Heavenly rhubarb and vanilla jam.
I was pleased to come across a blog that has predominantly vegan dishes. I actually used to be vegetarian, but now-a-days it’s meat-lover’s paradise in my kitchen. You don’t have to be a vegetarian/vegan to enjoy a meat/dairy/animal-free dish every once in a while. So hop on over to Munchkin mail and see what entices you!
I had to tweak the recipe slightly b/c I had slightly more rhubarb than the recipe originally called for, but the proportions are the same.
To be honest, I was surprised that me preserves didn’t taste slightly sour or tangy at all. I thought the rhubarb would give it a slightly tangy flavor, but either there was more than enough fructose to cancel it out or my rhubarb wasn’t ready to be picked yet.
Since i have never cooked/baked with rhubarb, I’m not sure what it exactly tastes like, but the preserves had a nice soft vanilla flavor to them and I thoroughly enjoyed them! Next time I will try by mixing in different fruits…maybe even some strawberries! Continue Reading »
