Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: Remoulade Sauce!

This week, The Dads want to encourage you to make your own sauces! Why buy store bought when you can make homemade quick & easy for less money? Bonus: The taste is so much better!

We made a Remoulade Sauce this morning since our friends will be coming for dinner tonight. The first course that we will be serving is an avocado sliced on the plate, topped with jumbo lump crab meat that has been tossed in this fantastic Remoulade Sauce!

When you make your own sauces, do you follow the recipe or add your own twists? What’s your favorite to make?

Watch The Dads video below for our tips and tricks!

Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: Fresh Whipped Cream

For this week, we have a guest tutorial from Leah, Harris’ daughter. In the video below, Leah demonstrates how to make fresh whipped cream, infused with Grand Marnier. If you decide to give it a try, just beat 1 cup of whipping cream, 2 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar, and 1 teaspoon of whatever flavor you prefer. Feel free to warm up any flavor with vanilla as well.

Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: Simple Syrup

We’re back! After some relaxing in Key West, we are very excited to share with you this week’s Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: How to make Simple Syrup. Spring is in the air and we are ready for cocktails! Simple Syrup is an ingredient in so many of our favorites, but we can’t figure out why so many people buy it in the store.  Not only is it very inexpensive and quick to make, simple syrup can be stored easily in your fridge. And the best part? You will only need equal parts of sugar and water! Simply heat on the stove until the sugar has dissolved, then store in a Mason jar.  Watch the video below and you will be making mint juleps and mojitos in no time!

Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: Roasted Garlic

We love roasted garlic! It’s super easy and healthy! So why not make some tonight? In fact, why roast just one knob? Why not two or three? That’s what we do!

For this week’s Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial video, Dave demonstrates how to roast your garlic- The Dads’ way!

Roasted garlic is great for garlic bread, garlic mashed potatoes, anti-pasta and so much more! When we took ours out of the oven, we couldn’t help but take a clove out of the knob and smear it onto a piece of olive bread. Delish!!!!

In our photo below, you can see our roasted garlic after having been roasted in the oven for a full hour at 350 degrees. Look how easily a single clove pulls out of the knob. If you need the entire knob, simply squeeze from the bottom and push all the cloves out at the same time.

Roasted Garlic, fresh out of the oven!
