With the holiday season right around the corner, now is the time to start stocking up on great gifts for family and friends. While you might not be able to be physically with all the folks you love over the holidays, there’s nothing as great as giving thoughtful gifts that people can use while they’reContinue reading “Holiday Gift Guide”
Pork steaks are an amazing cut for a quick weeknight meal. There are lots of flavor possibilities with them. Pork steaks are often cooked low and slow in traditional Texas BBQ, but we have found that a hot and fast application can be as (if not more) delicious, and certainly less effort is involved. AboutContinue reading “Pork Steaks with mushroom-blue cheese pan sauce”
In Partnership with Safeway There’s no denying that the pandemic going on is going to change the way we celebrate holidays this year. With less travel and smaller gatherings, I wanted to get creative about how we can share a holiday meal together without actually being in the same room together. Rather than having 20-30Continue reading “Holiday Sides: perfect to share from afar”
Cheesecake on the Traeger? That was my mother-in-law’s question when we were discussing recipes for my cookbook. She was skeptical, despite being a Traeger owner herself. Why yes, a cheesecake on the Traeger comes out delicious—because the convection cooking of the Traeger provides, even, consistent heat. Your cake will come out tender and delicious andContinue reading “Pumpkin Cheesecake”
Prime Rib and the holidays are a perfect combination. It is truly that iconic holiday dish– a big roast on the table with a bunch of amazing side dishes, some spicy horseradish sauce, and plenty of good cheer. Slicing into that roast in front of family and friends is an amazing feeling, and since we’veContinue reading “Planning Ahead for the Holidays: Prime Rib”
Here in Colorado the weather has started changing, and we’ve gotten our first couple snow storms. It’s a welcome change from the heat of the summer, but it also makes me start thinking more about holiday meals that we can cook on the grill. It seems crazy, but we totally love cooking everything, year-round, onContinue reading “Planning Ahead for the Holidays: Green Bean Casserole”
Over the next few weeks, I plan to be sharing a bunch of holiday-focused content on my blog as well as on my social channels. While Thanksgiving and Christmas seem like a long time from now, the reality is that in less than 2 months the turkey will be gracing your dinner table, and thisContinue reading “Planning Ahead for the Holidays: Dry Brined Turkey”
As the weather begins to turn cold, it’s time to start thinking about warm, cozy food. But I think often people assume that cold(er) weather means the end of grilling season. Not at my house! We cook year-round on our Traeger grills in our backyard and really enjoy trying new ideas, recipes and dishes thatContinue reading “Pirated Pantry BBQ Cassoulet”
A grilled burger stuffed with cheese is an ultimate luxury. If you can seal it in well and cook it perfectly, you’re bound to have a burger with an amazingly-melty center when you take a bite. I’ve had several different kinds of stuffed burgers over the years, and recently realized that homemade pimento cheese wouldContinue reading “Cabot Pimento Stuffed Cheeseburger”
Sponsored by Ace Hardware As summer comes to a close, the weather has started cooling off here in Colorado and it’s finally feeling nice enough to spend some time outdoors dining again. We’ve gotten through those few weeks of 90° days, and now the mornings and evenings are a little more crisp. It’s been aContinue reading “An Amazing Traegered Brunch in Under an Hour”
Sponsored by Ace Hardware I get asked often about how I keep my grills clean given how frequently I use them. We cook at least 5 nights a week on my Traegers– and often more than that. And some days, we have multiple grills rolling smoke, cooking a variety of things for one meal. WhileContinue reading “Maintaining Your Grill and Keeping It Clean (and then cooking an amazing pork shoulder)”
Sponsored by Buffalo Trace Distillery I love a good Old Fashioned. When it is done right, all the flavors work together and it just can’t be beat. Particularly with an Old Fashioned made with Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey, you get those strong notes of toffee and vanilla that pair so well with the citrusy orangeContinue reading “Scallops in an Old Fashioned Sauce”
