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”
Sponsored by Cabot Creamery There’s no better combination than smoky bacon and salty, melty cheddar cheese. Whether that’s in an omelette, on a sandwich, or in a quiche, the melding of the two flavors is iconic, with the nutty aroma of an awesome cheddar cheese throughout. When we were thinking up ideas for an appetizerContinue reading “Bacon & Cheese Puffs”
Sponsored by the National Pork Board Don’t forget about pork this grilling season! There are so many delicious cuts and when you cook it just right, you cannot beat the flavor, texture and great value. At our house, we eat pork on a regular basis– most often bone-in pork chops. A simple reverse sear onContinue reading “Pork Loin Roast: a versatile summer cook”
This recipe for tuna melts is something my mother-in-law has made throughout my wife’s childhood. There are some fond, funny memories associated with them—especially friends coming over in elementary school for lunch and to hold a lemonade stand on their road. It’s interesting how certain foods elicit strong memories for people. Tuna melts for myContinue reading “Tuna Melts”
Sometimes, there’s nothing as delicious and indulgent as an amazing cheeseburger. I take my burgers to the next level by making the ultimate BBQ Cheeseburger, topping cheesy patties with candied bacon, homemade onion rings, and griddled pulled pork. Top generously with lots of Head Country BBQ sauce and you’ve got the ultimate restaurant-style burger atContinue reading “Ultimate BBQ Cheeseburger”
Cooking a delicious steak at home does not need to be a daunting process. We’ve all been to a fancy (or even not-so-fancy) steakhouse where steaks are served sizzling and (hopefully) delicious. But sometimes they’re not cooked to how you order them. Or simply the sticker shock of the bill leaves a sour taste in your mouth. Did I really just spend that much money on a steak dinner?
As you’ve probably seen in other posts here on my blog, you’ve noticed that I like tacos. Sometimes, a traditional ground beef taco hits the spot, but in this scenario, we wanted to enjoy some of the deliciously amazing Salmon and Sable salmon that we had in the freezer. Now, especially during these Coronavirus times,Continue reading “Salmon Tacos with Citrus Slaw and Sriracha Crema”
Whenever a simple, light but fresh meal is just what you need, find a boring favorite and cook it outside. I live to cook anything (from bread to dessert to more traditional BBQ) in my Traeger grill. Trying a new take on an old favorite dish is one of my time-tested ways to beat mealtimeContinue reading “Cajun Seasoned Shrimp with Sheet Pan Veggies”
We love fried chicken sandwiches and what better time than under quarantine, is there to make them at home? This is an easy recipe with simple ingredients you probably already have around the kitchen. For this recipe we begin with a whole boneless skinless chicken breast. Next, we flatten them out a bit with aContinue reading “Buffalo Fried Chicken Sandwiches”
