Everything Burger & Slider Buns

Red Wine Burgers

We’re big, big fans of homemade hamburger buns around here. Peek around and you’ll find Chipotle Buns, Jalapeno Cheddar buns, and Shiner Bock buns. Buns are more than just a vehicle to get from plate to mouth, although that’s their most important job. They’re also an excuse to add another layer of flavor to your [...]

Hawaiian Turkey Burgers

Half of the adults in this house are generally anti-turkey burger. And 100% of the toddlers in this house don’t care what’s inside that hamburger bun, as long as there is a pile of cherry tomatoes next to it. But if I mention turkey outside of sandwiches or Thanksgiving, I get a sigh. (And if [...]

It’s a combination that knows no limits: appetizers, sandwiches, and even dessert. Toss those strawberries with a good balsamic vinegar and peppery arugula, and pile it on some crusty French bread? There’s a perfect balance, a [...]

Yet I could knock back a bag of dye- and preservative-laden fried chip-puff thingies, no questions asked. She’d slather a big spoonful on a [...]

Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches with Mustard Blend

Back when we were dating, one of our favorite places to eat was Texadelphia, a local-ish chain of “watch the game” bars famous for their chicken cheesesteak sandwiches. Like clockwork, you could find us there after church softball games (rehydration is important!), after flag football games (rehydration is important!), and any Sunday afternoon if the [...]

Meet the rockstars of the party, Ham and Cheese Sliders. I sweetened my favorite dinner roll dough with honey, split the baked [...]
