A very simple and quite delicious All-Purpose California Beef Rub. Instead of coffee, we used ground espresso. We used closer to 2 Tbsp. of Kosher salt, and adobe Chile pepper instead of cayenne because that’s what we had. It was amazing off the Grill and days later sliced cold on slivers of bread. Dry rub ingredients: 2 tablespoons finely ground coffee 1 ½ tablespoons kosher salt 1 ½ tablespoons granulated garlic 1 heaping teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon brown sugar ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper ¼ teaspoon ground cloves ¼ teaspoon cinnamon Combine all ingredients and store in airtight container or pat it all onto a Tri-tip prior to grilling. PREPARATION: Trim silver skin. The meat may have a thick layer of fat, some of which can be sliced off, but keep a good amount to help baste meat. Sprinkle meat with rub and massage lightly all over. Cover and refrigerate at least an hour or as long as overnight. Remove from refrigerator an hour before cooking. Prepare charcoal grill or heat a gas grill to high. Place roast on grill and sear one side well, 6 to 8 minutes, checking for flare-ups. Turn the roast and sear other side for about the same time. Then lower gas to medium-high or move the meat to a cooler part of the charcoal grill. Turn meat again and cook another 8 to 10 minutes. Flip and cook again. A 2-pound roast will require about 20 to 25 minutes total cooking time. The roast is ready when an instant-read thermometer reaches 130 degrees when inserted into the thickest part of the meat. Rest roast on a cutting board 10 to 20 minutes. Slice against the grain. The roast is shaped like a boomerang, so either cut it in half at the center of the angle, or slice against the grain on one side, turn the roast and slice against the grain on the other side. @madieskitchen #nytimescooking #tritip #grilling #beefrub #grilling #bbq #coffee @lavazzaofficial #espresso @nytimes https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1016919-grilled-or-oven-roasted-santa-maria-tri-tip?regi=1&join_cooking_newsletter=false®ister=email&auth=register-email

Hot Toddy? Why yes...please... 🥃 Whiskey and Bourbon can be a great decongestant — the alcohol dilates the blood vessels, making it easier for your mucus membranes to deal with the infection — and, combined with the herbal tea, squeeze of honey, lemon, and the warm steam emanating from the drink, you have the perfect concoction for helping to clear up your cold. So many people are fighting colds. A hot toddy is also perfect for those freezing cold nights. Sip one by the fire. I asked a friend of mine for the best recipe and was told to use 2 shots of your favorite bourbon, 1-2 tsp. of butter, heaping spoonful of brown sugar, about 8 oz of hot water, and a squeeze of fresh lemon. I tried it and it’s tasty but made one for our neighbor who was under the weather. He said it hit the spot! Always helps to have antique glassware. Makes it taste that much better. @madieskitchen @fijiwater #madieskitchen #hottoddy #hottoddies #cold #hot #bourbon #whiskey #babybourbon #hudsonbabybourbonwhiskey @hudsonwhiskey #itscoldoutside #sick #goodnight #sleeptight #winter Other great recipes: https://www.thespruce.com/hot-toddy-759692

My friend Casey Gonzales posted this on Christmas Eve. Kids were down for a nap and I loved the idea so I started going though the fridge and pantry. Literally used what I had on hand. Next year I will prepare more and maybe use toothpicks through the olives, but it came out cute for not having much time to prep. Thanks for the idea Casey! Also my neighbor showed up with these appetizers that were cream cheese and dill pickles wrapped with ham. Supposedly the number one selling appetizer at Stater Bros during the holidays. I was skeptical but yum they were good. Will attempt making myself as well next time. https://cafedelites.com/antipasto-cheese-ball-christmas-tree/ http://allrecipes.com/recipe/14906/cream-cheese-pickles/ @madieskitchen #appetizers #christmastree #christmas #empanadas #charcuterie #creamcheese #christmaseve #creative @caseyscakes

I hope everyone has been enjoying the holiday season. Yes, everywhere you go it’s madness. People forget how to drive, they are impatient, and always in a hurry. Sometimes you just have to stop, take a breath, and attempt something on your bucket list. For me...it was homemade empanadas! My husband likes them and we have close friends that make their own versions. I was able to ask Marta Mayorga Bergandi and Florencia Cademartori (thank you, gracias) for their expertise and I dove right in. Yesterday I took a vacation day to spend some time in the kitchen. Prepared the beef and dough, then today got the family on board to help put them together. Tried to find the Goya turnover pastry puff but had no luck so I made my own dough finding a highly rated recipe online. We had fun making them and we could literally eat all of them but saving them for our family Christmas Eve dinner. Wishing everyone a wonderful next couple days. Do something for yourself. Do something for someone else and try to rest. @madieskitchen #madieskitchen #empanadas #laylitasrecipes @laylitasrecipes #homemadeempanadas #christmastime #familytime #bucketlist #holidays #slowdown ❤️ 🌲 https://www.laylita.com/recipes/how-to-make-empanada-dough/

1st annual potluck at the kids daycare last week. Was fortunate to not be traveling. I decided to ask the kids in the class what they preferred and it was mostly requests like: a cake, cupcakes, Mac & Cheese, and candy. I decided to do a simple cupcake with Funfetti cake and cream cheese frosting. I had a ton of random sprinkles so I used a cookie cutter as a stencil. Didn’t come out that bad. The cupcakes were the first thing to go! Learned a lesson though. Make one color sprinkle so that the kids don’t fight over over the rainbow colored one. Also made Mac & Cheese. It’s been so busy for us but we still found time to get our tree. Funny that there’s a Christmas tree shortage this year. Never heard of that happening before. Hope Everyone is enjoying the holiday season. 🌲 @madieskitchen #madieskitchen #cupcakes #stencil #sprinkles #potluck #busy #ohchristmastree #creamcheesefrosting #daycare #workingmom

A follow-up to Sunday’s post about homemade pasta noodles, a meat sauce and meatballs. It went well. We are happy with the outcome and hope to make it all again soon! Homemade Spaghetti Sauce: Remove casing from sausages In a large stock pot drizzle a little olive oil. On medium heat, add 1 pound of mild sausage and 1/2 pound of ground beef until lightly browned. Add in 5 chopped garlic cloves and 1/4 cup chopped onion until soft. Add in the following to the pot: - 28 oz. can peeled crushed tomatoes - 15 oz. can tomato sauce - 6 oz. can tomato paste - juice from 1/2 of one Lemon - 1/4 cup of red wine - 4 fresh basil leaves chopped - 1/2 tsp. sugar - 1/2 tsp. Ground pepper - 1 tsp. Kosher salt or more to taste - 1 tsp. Italian seasoning - 1/2 tsp. Dried or fresh parsley - 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder or Garlic gnarni Bring to a boil and then let simmer for 20 minutes. We transferred our sauce to the crockpot and cooked on low for a few hours. It tastes amazing. And 3 nights later we had it leftover. It was even better. On Sunday Madie and Nico each had a few helpings. You know it’s good when the kids want more. For the homemade noodles we used flour and eggs. Will add salt to noodles next time. http://madieskitchen.com/2013/03/meatballs/ @madieskitchen #madieskitchen #homemade #pasta #pastamaker #italiansausage #meatballs #teamwork #familyfun #sundayfunday @crockpot #delicious #kidapproved @garlicfestivalfoods

First of all...thank you to my dear friend Chuck Rhodes for sending a surprise box of salt rising bread and a cookbook. As many of you know, I am all about learning new things. When I have the time, I will attempt a recipe if it seems intriguing. I was on the road a few days this week and it made my day to come home to a box of goodies. Have you had or heard of salt rising bread? If so, what are your thoughts? Salt Rising Bread. ... It is tricky, but worth the effort for one who loves that very different, pungent smell of salt-rising bread. The cornmeal used for the starter must contain the inner germ of the corn and a constant warm temperature must be maintained." It is unique. It won’t be for everyone. If you’d like to try it, please stop by. This morning Madie and I had it toasted crispy with a little butter and a couple dips into homemade cranberry sauce. Next we plan to make grilled cheese out of the bread. Keep you posted on our feelings on it. I do want to attempt to make it from scratch. What a challenge it will be... ❤️ http://risingcreekbakery.com/ @madieskitchen #madieskitchen @chuckrhodes1 #saltrisingbread #risingcreekbakery #trynewthings #homemadebread #unique @risingcreekbakery

When your children’s daycare asks for a Christmas ornament for the kids to go on the school tree that represents the kids. And that we won’t be getting the ornaments back... We immediately thought pine cones. They are all over our house and because we love Big Bear so much. Madie made this pine cone turkey at school last year which has been on her nightstand. Figured I could write their names, add some twine, and save some money. It definitely represents them. Homemade creative fun. @madieskitchen #madieskitchen #ornaments #christmasdecorations #christmastree #daycare #siblings #homemade #creative #workingmom #lovemykids #pinecone #bigbear @bigbearfun

7am = homemade cranberry sauce with Madie this morning, followed by kids off to school and mommy off to L.A. for a late afternoon meeting. Walked back in the door at 7:30pm and the kids and I delivered cranberry sauce to a few neighbors. Just in the nick of time before tomorrow’s big day. Wishing everyone a beautiful, loving, and thankful Thanksgiving. ❤️ Please share your favorite recipes, photos of your turkey (pies, ham, spreads), selfies and more as we get into the holiday spirit. #madieskitchen @madieskitchen @oceansprayinc #cranberry #cranberrysauce #toddlerfun #holidayfun #happythanksgiving #homemade #cranberrysauce #1767 #boysinblue #johnadams #bourbon #kentuckybourbon #3yearsold #mommydaughtertime #holidayfun #neighborgifts #give http://madieskitchen.com/2012/11/cranberry-sauce-1767/

Is it Thursday yet? Don’t know about anyone else, but this Mama is exhausted! I should have posted this last month. James is out with his Taco Tuesday family tonight and while playing with the kids I realized we never shared the cake that was made for James. We made it over the weekend and delivered it to Taco Tuesday on October 24th. 3-layer Funfetti cake, cream cheese frosting and sprinkles. Used ice cream cones, YORK peppermint patties to help keep the frosting intact, and food coloring gel mixed in with cream cheese frosting to make the pretend ice cream in the cones. Ziploc bags to pipe the icing. Super quick and easy. Simple and sweet. Kids loved it and let’s face it; that’s all that matters. @madieskitchen #creamcheesefrosting #icecream #birthdaycake #funfetti #yorkpeppermintpatties #madieskitchen http://madieskitchen.com/2014/03/best-cream-cheese-frosting/

Happy Friday! I’ve made this broccoli soup twice now. I love it and both kids actually like it. I needed to use a couple heads of broccoli so I found this recipe online. It’s a copycat recipe from Panera Breads broccoli cheddar soup. Never had theirs but figured I would give it a shot. It’s easy, delicious, doesn’t require too many ingredients and actually quite healthy. We used lactose free whole milk so it’s a lactose free soup. You can use regular milk if you’d like. I tried it without celery, carrots and cheddar as well. And it’s good that way too. Leftover also tastes good. Get creative. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/235874/copycat-panera-broccoli-cheddar-soup/ Ingredients: 1 tablespoon butter 1/2 onion, chopped 1/4 cup melted butter 1/4 cup flour 2 cups milk 2 cups chicken stock 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped broccoli florets 1 cup matchstick-cut carrots 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced 2 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese salt and ground black pepper to taste Directions: Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion in hot butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside. Whisk 1/4 cup melted butter and flour together in a large saucepan over medium-low heat; cook until flour loses it's granular texture, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk if necessary to keep the flour from burning, 3 to 4 minutes. Gradually pour milk into flour mixture while whisking constantly. Stir chicken stock into milk mixture. Bring to a simmer; cook until flour taste is gone and mixture is thickened, about 20 minutes. Add broccoli, carrots, sauteed onion, and celery; simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Stir Cheddar cheese into vegetable mixture until cheese melts. Season with salt and pepper to taste. @madieskitchen #madieskitchen #brocoli #brocolicheddarsoup #panerabread @panerabread @homemadesoupclub #homemadesoup #winter #lactosefree @lactosefreeme_

When your neighbor delivers 20 persimmons to your doorstep....you Google “Persimmon Jelly.” I washed them, cut into one, and ate it. Tasted sweet so I decided to spend Sunday afternoon prepping and making homemade jelly. It turned into a family affair. And guess what? Super easy and it tastes good. Subtle, lightly Sweet, and perfect on toast with a little butter. Used this recipe but modified. - 17 persimmons - cut or peel the outer skin off - cut into wedges - purée in blender until smooth - in a large saucepan on medium heat cook the puréed persimmons with 2 cups of sugar on boil constantly stirring for 15 minutes - 1.5 lemons: add the juice to purée - in a separate bowl mix 4 tbsp. of water and 2 tbsp. of cornstarch fully - pour cornstarch mixture into the persimmon purée and boil/stir for another 15 minutes - put into canning jars - deliver in a picnic basket to your neighbors. Especially the one that gave you the fruit. - refrigerate and serve on toast the next morning or store in the freezer until ready to use. *if you like apricot or peach jam, you will enjoy this! https://sweetandsavorymeals.com/easy-persimmon-jam-recipe/ @madieskitchen #persimmon #persimmons #jelly #homemadejelly #fallactivities #familyfun #neighborlove #picnicbasket #madieskitchen #canning #canningjars #yummy #toastandjam

Beautiful day in Barstow today. Parked off Stoddard, did some fun single track, one too many whoops and landed at Slash X for a snack. Hubby and I just needed a day to ride. It was the best way to spend a vacation day! Weather was 73 and sunny. I feel so out of shape but better to just jump right in.
