A Twist on the Classic American Cheese Burger & Fries

I’ve heard many peo­ple say pizza is like sex — even when its bad, you’re still hav­ing pizza. That’s how I feel about burg­ers. And a good burger instantly sends me into culi­nary eupho­ria. One of my favorite burger recipes I’ve devel­oped over the years is a twist on gyros, the slow-cooked spiced Greek meat typ­i­cally served […]

Spicy Grilled Lamb Chops with Tzatziki, Roasted Eggplant & Summer Squash and Lemon Rice

We’ve received an over-abundance of cucum­bers from our CSA this sum­mer. While try­ing to come up with ideas for what to do with them, Megan men­tioned tzatziki sauce. That made me think of gyros which made me think of lamb and sud­denly I wanted lamb chops.

Simple Salad, Seriously Scrumptious

I really enjoy a good salad, espe­cially a large din­ner salad. I also enjoy grilling, fruit, bacon and good cheese. Tonight I decided to put them all together in an exper­i­ment of sorts.

Throw Another Pizza on the Barbie!

Megan and I love pizza. Probably too much. So much so that Thursdays have some­how jok­ingly become pizza night at our house. In the past that has been a rather poor idea health-wise as it usu­ally involved some guy hand­ing us a pizza at our front door. But, not tonight. Tonight we made our own […]

We had some friends over last night for a lit­tle 4th of july shindig; it turned out rather awe­some. As with most of our friendly gath­er­ings it was pot-luck style.
