Seasoned Stuffed Cheeseburgers – On The Fire

Seasoned Stuffed Cheeseburgers – On The Fire

Seasoned Stuffed Cheeseburgers Well seasoned stuffed cheeseburgers are one of my favorite summer meals. I could live on cheeseburgers and pizza. Stuffing cheese in the burger and adding fresh tomato, lettuce and onion, maybe a pickle, and how about crispy bacon – perfection! Cheddar and Blue cheeses are my favorite. Choose whatever you like! You can add this seasoning to the meat before forming the burgers, or sprinkle it liberally on both sides. One batch of seasoning will season one…

Rhubarb Muffins – On The Fire

Rhubarb Muffins – On The Fire

Rhubarb Muffins I think rhubarb is an under-appreciated vegetable. It’s a vegetable. You knew that, right? Ya…me either for a long time. Here’s an easy way to get folks who don’t like vegetables (I can’t believe that’s even real.) to eat one. Disguise it as a treat. These Rhubarb Muffins are sweet and a nice change from the typical strawberry rhubarb pie or jam. Chop the rhubarb into small pieces, no larger than 1/4″. Rhubarb is bitter. You can minimize…

Sweet & Spicy Pork Tenderloin

Sweet & Spicy Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin can be used in many ways. I like to dice leftover tenderloin for pork fried rice, slice it into 3″ thick slabs to butterfly and stuff, pan fry, and one of my favorites – Sweet & Spicy Pork Tenderloin. Adjust the amount of crushed red pepper to suit your tastes, but be careful to not overwhelm the sweetness of the sauce. Pork tenderloin is mild.

Teriyaki Meatballs – appetizer or main course

Teriyaki Meatballs – appetizer or main course

Teriyaki meatballs are a great make-ahead dish that can be used as a side or the main coarse. I use my standard meatball recipe and then adjust the teriyaki sauce to suit what we feel like eating at the moment. You can make the sauce a little thicker with a pinch more cornstarch. Add more garlic if you’d like. If you’d like a bit of heat you can add red pepper flakes. Basic Meatball Recipe 1 pound of ground beef…

Bourbon Meatballs – On The The Fire

Bourbon Meatballs – On The The Fire

Bourbon Meatballs I love these meatballs. Love them. I’m not a big fan of bourbon alone but Bourbon Meatballs is one of my favorites. I make these for appetizers or increase the size of the meatball and use them as an entree. The bourbon gives this recipe a rich flavor. Definitely not for kids so if you want to make a meatball everyone can enjoy you may replace the bourbon with apple cider. If you’re in a time crunch or…

Dutch Apple Pie – Streusel Topping

Dutch Apple Pie – Streusel Topping

Dutch Apple Pie Dutch Apple Pie was known as Sour Cream Apple Pie in my house when I was growing up. It was a once-a-year treat, always at Thanksgiving. Pies in general, unless it was pumpkin pie, were a holiday treat. This might have made Dutch Apple Pie special in one way but the decadent, somewhat old fashioned, filling, deliciousness of this pie would have kept it special if we’d had it every week. It’s hearty, not overly sweet (cut…

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies – Autumn’s Favorite Cookie

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies – Autumn’s Favorite Cookie

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies I think Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies are a tad bit fussy at the baking stage but they are worth it! Preheat your oven to 325°, lower than usual for cookies. And, lay a sheet of parchment paper on your cookie sheet. That’s it, the fussy part. The rest is “normal.” Pumpkin Snickerdoodles are an awesome autumn treat with a cup of hot tea, coffee or chocolate! They pack up well to take on the road because they’re soft…

It’s easy to remember, easy to make, and easy to eat…

Eggnog Cookies with Creamy Frosting

Eggnog Cookies with Creamy Frosting

Eggnog Cookies with Creamy Eggnog Frosting Growing up, Christmas was about food, visiting family, food, presents, food, and food. Mum spent days baking and making candy. The dining room table, so big it seated eight easily and ten if we squeezed together, was covered with sugary treats. I carried that tradition on for decades. Now, with a waistline I have to keep a very close eye on and only two of us in the house, I seldom bake sweets. Or…I…

Mincemeat Cookies – Mincemeat and Cookie Recipes

Mincemeat Cookies Mincemeat cookies? Really? ohh…no, thanks. I don’t really like mincemeat. “You’ll like these,” Erin Merrill said as she nudged the plate across the table a few inches. I resisted for a while. Erin looked from me to the cookies and back again several times, nudging them now and then. “They’re gooood.” Erin’s convincing, and as mom to my favorite little guy, she’s kind of hard to resist. She was right. These cookies are fantastic. There isn’t a lot…
