For Christmas I received a Blackstone Griddle. It is the most used gift that I have ever received. I cook everything on it, from Japanese steakhouse fried rice to smash burgers. We love fried rice so much that I decided to come up with a recipe to go along with some Fajitas. I combined some tomato sauce, chiles and seasonings to make some of the most delicious fried rice that I have ever had. It is a huge hit at our house!
We are only a few days away from Christmas and that can only mean one thing. Christmas Cookies!!! I love all types of cookies but for some reason, all cookies taste better at Christmas! This list includes everything from Cut out cookies to fudge crinkles. Lots of sugar, lots of chocolate and a ton of Christmas Fun! Check out our best Christmas Cookies for 2016!
Like so many American’s my eyes are bigger than my stomach. Therefore, I have a ton of leftovers after Thanksgiving. Ok, this might have been done on purpose ?. Who doesn’t love an open faced hot turkey sandwich. But there are so many other things that you can do with the leftovers. Here are my favorite ideas.
My Father-in-law Bill is quite the mixologist and makes some mean cocktails (remember the Sangria). So I asked if he could provide the recipe for his awesome Tom Collins to the blog. He obliged and wrote an entire post! So without further ado, here is Bill.
Nothing is more American than the 4th of July barbecue and with Rex around the cooking is well taken care of but the drinks are my department. I thought back to all the summer shindigs we used to have in my aunt’s backyard and the adults always started the party with their favorite summertime cocktail, the Tom Collins and no one liked them or made them better than my grandmother.
I make a ton of homemade pizzas and I always make my own pizza sauce. The number one question that I get is, what pizza sauce recipe should I use? So the other day, I searched my website looking for it and I did not find it. To be honest, I thought that I had already wrote a pizza sauce post. I guess I was wrong. Here is my favorite pizza sauce recipe!
I am a huge fan of pepper jelly. I like to add it to marinades and sauces, to add a little sweet heat. I also like to eat it straight up in Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches. Not to mention it is great with a little cream cheese on crackers. Pepper jelly is a pretty universal ingredient. I have tried almost all of the different commercially available Pepper Jelly’s but they just are not hot enough or they are way too sweet. So like any red blooded American, I decided that I could do it better myself. Wow, I was right. This pepper jelly is the best I have have ever eaten. It is not too sweet, but has enough heat to let you know that it contains Habaneros.
My wife Dana is from New York City! When we visit NYC, we like to purchase food items to bring back Virginia. One of those food items is fresh pasta. Our favorite is Manicotti. You just can’t beat the flavor of the pasta, from the pasta stores in New York. Since we haven’t been to NY in a while, our stash has run dry. So I wanted to surprise Dana with some handmade Manicotti. I must say the three cheese Manicotti was freaking fantastic. Even Dana said it was the best that she had eaten. That says a lot.

I love Red Stag Black Cherry Bourbon from Jim Beam. It is freaking delicious! I know what you are thinking, Red Stag tastes great as-is! There really is no need to mix this stuff at all. However, this stuff tastes so good that it screams to be mixed in a cocktail. I stumbled into this … Read moreRed Hot Stag – Thirsty Thursday
We have been on a huge orange soda kick over here at the RexBBQ/Savoryreviews.com headquarters. So we decided to make a cocktail with our favorite Orange Soda “Fanta”. This cocktail mixes a nice spiced rum with the sweet flavors of orange. This is a great cocktail for the summer! Hopefully by drinking this, the summer … Read moreThirsty Thursday – Orange Fanta-sy
Two years ago, the biggest party in all of New York happened. Yep, I got married. To celebrate my second Anniversary, Dana and I pulled out our crystal flutes and made some cocktails.
