Graham Crumb Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies When I decided that I was going to bake these cookies, my initial thought was to hold off on publishing the recipe until Christmas. For me, graham crumbs conjure up images of Christmas. I guess that’s when my mom would use graham crumbs the most. Well, she did make a no-bake cheesecake almost every Sunday for dessert. That had graham crumbs. Maybe I’m wrong about them being a Christmas thing. So, I’m going to go ahead and publish this recipe now. Yes, Dear Reader, you know I’m already busy at work on my third annual Lord Byron’s 24 Cookies of Christmas series! The cat’s out of the bag now, but I think most of you already expect it to happen anyway. You know how much I love Christmas! And, I love graham crackers and crumbs, so let’s talk about this recipe! THE BOY WHO STOLE CRACKERS I remember when I was a kid, I would steal my mom’s graham crackers. If she was out of graham crackers, I would steal her graham crumbs. How could I help myself? They were so delicious! Besides, she’d never let us eat them because to her they were only meant for baking! I’ve shared with you before, Dear Reader, that I have never in my life tried an s’mores. Nope! Sure, we had backyard fires just like…

Buttermilk Dill Ranch Pasta Salad

I’m all about pasta salads. I can eat pasta salad every day. There’s just a few caveats. First and foremost, they have to be delicious. Texture is an absolute must. And, they have to be easy to make, inexpensive, and they must be still just as tasty the next day! The best thing about past salads is that they can be made ahead of time. You can easily adapt them to your liking too, because they’re very forgiving. And, it seems that everyone loves them! That’s probably why they are such a popular side dish at many restaurants, and certainly at every summer picnic or backyard bbq! IS THIS A COLESLAW OR A PASTA SALAD? You’ve got a keen eye, Dear Reader. Indeed this dish has the makings of a coleslaw, but it also has everything you need to make a delicious pasta salad. I’ve seen a coleslaw pasta salad circulating online for the past year or two. I tried the recipe once. And, we loved it. I just thought I could do better. I’m not being conceited! Really! I just firmly believe that a simple recipe is great, but you can always improve upon it. How did I improve on the original? I made a homemade dressing for starters. And I added dill to the dressing – lots and lots of dill!…

Sweet Jalapeno Pork

It seems that I cannot get enough of jalapenos lately. I’ve been experimenting with them a lot. If you’re a Lord Byron’s Kitchen fan, you might have noticed that I have been posting jalapeno inspired recipes lately. I swear, I’m almost over it! What happens to me quite often. I will find a new ingredient and I’ll run with it until I grow tired of it. I’m doing it with jalapenos now, but I’ve done it before with shallots, butternut squash, and even Brussels sprouts! But, I think jalapenos have been winning in terms of recipe popularity. It seems that everyone loves jalapenos! Once you’ve finished with this recipe, I encourage you to consider my 3 Cheese Jalapeno Poppers, these Jalapeno Corn Muffins, and also, my Grilled Vegetable Pasta Salad. If you’ve never grilled jalapenos before, you must try it! FRYING JALAPENOS In this recipe, the pork and the sliced jalapenos are tossed in the same batter and fried in the same manner. I sliced the jalapenos about 1/4 inch thick and left the seeds in. As you know, Dear Reader, it’s the seeds that make the jalapenos spicy. If you remove them, the jalapeno is mild and sweet. Because I wanted the spiciness, I left the seeds in. If you want to remove the seeds, I would suggest you prepare your jalapenos differently. Rather than slice them, cut…

Guacamole with Charred Corn and Tomatoes

I have spent most of my life avoiding guacamole as much as possible. Prior to me preparing dishes on my own, every guacamole I had found was loaded with cilantro. I hate cilantro. I’m one of those people who will argue that cilantro tastes like soap. Now, I’m not sure if you’ve ever had a mouthful of soap, but if you did, you would understand why guacamole was avoided. A few years ago, I discovered dried cilantro. I took a chance and tried it in the guacamole I was preparing. And, guess what!? It didn’t taste like soap! It was so good, in fact, I made it again for this blog. I called it Guacamole for Cilantro Haters just so that my readers knew where I stood on the issue! So, there we were. I had found a way to make guacamole that both the cilantro hater and the cilantro lover could agree on. I thought that was it, but there was so much more to guacamole that I had yet to discover. GUACAMOLE – WHAT A WEIRD NAME FOR AVOCADO SAUCE! Guacamole has been around since the sixteenth century. Can you believe that? Apparently, the Aztecs were the first to prepare guacamole. Oh, that’s why we call it guacamole. It literally translates to the avocado sauce. For many, many years, guacamole was mostly considered…

How To Do A Quick Keto Carrot Pickle

You will need the following materials and ingredients to make this easy keto carrot pickle: Two 16 oz Mason jars or four 8 oz jarsFiltered waterRaw organic apple cider vinegarHimalayan pink saltPeppercornsCoriander seedsWhole garlic clovesOnionJalapeñosWhole red chiliesDried Dill Keep in mind that when pickling you want to ensure that you are using the freshest vegetables. Vegetables that are bruised should be used in your cooking instead.  It’s important that you start the pickling process by first washing with hot soapy water your mason jars and lids. After you rinse your jars make sure they are completely dry before you add your vegetables. My recipe makes enough for two 16 oz Mason jar or four 8 oz jars. Then proceed to wash all the vegetables you will be adding to your pickle. Next, peel your carrots and then cut them into lengthwise into sticks that accommodate your size of mason jars.  Slice your choice of red, white or yellow onion thinly. If adding jalapeños, wash, deseed and slice lengthwise.  Once your vegetables are prepped pack them into your jars. Note that If using 8 oz mason jars you may need to cut your carrots further to be able to comfortably fit them into the jars.  Next, pour your brine into the jars to completely cover your vegetables. Allow your jars to cool for at least one hour…
