Burgers with Figs, Caramelized Onions, and Goat Cheese

The Fig Burger

A burger so nice that last week, we had it twice. In a row. Seriously. Fancy burgers have been a thing around here for a while (Exhibit A. And Exhibit B.) but this one is my new summer favorite. Do you like figs? And caramelized onions? And wine? And burgers that you have to transfer [...]

Chicken Cheesesteaks with Queso and Pico de Gallo. The Quesosteak!

Chicken Cheesesteaks with Queso and Pico de Gallo

So… I kind of signed up for a marathon this week. And by “kind of,” I mean that they have my money and I have a link to a training program. I guess that’s mostly fair. That program is exactly as long as as I have until “my” marathon. And is supposed to be exactly [...]

Burgers with Roasted Tomatoes and Pesto

Looks like summer. Feels like summer. Tastes like summer. That pretty much sums up this burger. And our weekend.

Let’s Talk Leftovers: The Cranburger

The Cranburger

Thanksgiving leftovers don’t have to suck. I mean they can, and after 3 days of the same exact thing, they usually do. But they can be reimagined in non-sucking ways. Take cranberry sauce, for instance. Leftover cranberry sauce is something that I firmly believe can never be a bad thing. Cranberries themselves are good with [...]
