Incredible Barbecue Ribs from the Oven

Enjoying really good barbecue ribs is not something that must be saved only for the summer grilling season or when you go to a good barbecue restaurant. You can make really incredible barbecue ribs in your oven. Although they take a while to cook, they are easy to make and a lot cheaper than buying […]

Apple Barbecue Grilled Chicken

The end of summer means back to school, cooler nights (and hopefully cooler days), and transitioning to fall foods. To celebrate the unofficial end of summer I grilled chicken and topped it with a chunky apple barbecue sauce to welcome fall. Inspired by a dish that a chain restaurant used to serve in the fall […]

Simply Grilled Lobster Tails

Looking for something different than burgers and hot dogs to grill for that backyard get together? Grilled lobster tails are a surprisingly simple and budget-friendly choice. In fact, with sales and coupons at Earth Fare recently, grilled lobster tails have almost became common place at our house 😉 I must admit that I wasn’t sure […]

Cheesy Herb Grilled Potatoes

Foil pouches have been a favorite of mine for many years now. I expect that the first complete meal I ever cooked was the first time I made “turtles” in Girl Scouts. While I still love “turtles,” I now like to cook many other dishes in foil pouches. My favorite may be potatoes. Besides the […]

Sauerbraten (ish) Meatloaf

Motivated by a desire to have sauerbraten, I created this recipe after debating between making meatloaf or sweet-and-sour meatballs. The gingersnaps, brown sugar and vinegar in the meatball sauce seemed like a similar flavor profile to sauerbraten, thus the birth of my new favorite dish. I love this meatloaf. It is easier and less time […]

Braised Lamb Shanks, a Crock Pot Version

Although I am more of a pressure cooker kind of person, I do occasionally plan far enough in advance to use my crock pot for a slow cooked dish or meal. Braising a lesser cut of meat is an excellent use of a crock pot. It is amazing to me that you can take a […]

Grilled Meatloaf Burgers

Why a meatloaf burger instead of just a regular beef burger?  Well, there are several reasons to partake of this delicious burger. They taste really good.  It is meatloaf on a bun after all. You can make it using very lean meat.  I usually buy most of our meat from a local farm, so I […]

Whether you call them silver turtles, turtles, hobo packs, or foil dinners, these main course or complete meals in a foil pouch are one of the easiest ways to cook dinner when camping or even at home on the grill or in the oven.

Rosemary Lamb Chops with Mint Barbecue Sauce

A well-prepared lamb chop can be divinely delicious. However, an ill-prepared lamb chop can turn a person off of eating lamb. Believe it or not, the worst lamb chops (actually, the worst lamb period) I have ever eaten was in a posh Beverly Hills, California restaurant. Ironically, it was the same restaurant where just a […]

Cherry Sauce/Glaze for Ham

I love cherries and I love ham, so it surprising that I did not like my mom’s cherry glaze for ham. After all, other people seemed to really like my mom’s cherry glazed ham. Even my dad, who did not usually like new or differently prepared foods, liked my mom’s cherry glazed ham the first […]
