Stuffed Cheddar Bacon Cheeseburgers

The question isn’t cheese or no cheese, it’s cheese on the outside or cheese on the inside? We don’t really buy ground beef very often. And when we do, there’s a 95% chance that it’s going to be turned into burgers. To help save on our grocery budget, we’ve started purchasing our meats from a [...]

Chipotle Hamburger Buns

Hamburger buns are one of our favorite breads to make. I typically bake a batch each month and then put them in the freezer for burger nights. We have several trusty recipes that we turn to over and over, but every once in a while, we like to try something new. My parents sold an [...]

Gulf Coast Shrimp Quesadillas or Tacos

The Foodie Groom selected the recipe for this week’s Project Pastry Queen challenge: Gulf Coast Shrimp Quesadillas.

Brie and Brisket Quesadillas with Mango Barbecue Sauce

Updated from the archives I was fortunate enough to not only grow up in southeast Texas amid an incredible abundance of Tex-Mex restaurants, but to grow up just down the street from an incredible Mexican woman.

Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches

December 23, 2010

I’m not a big crockpot person. In our house, it essentially serves three roles: 1. Maker of pulled pork sandwiches 2. Maker of French dip sandwiches 3.

Homemade Healthy Sloppy Joes

Every Sunday, I sit down and plan our dinners for the week. All 7 of them. And yet somehow I then spend the majority of the next 7 nights trying to get around the menu. What sounded good on Sunday just doesn’t sound as appealing on Tuesday. Or Wednesday. Or Friday. Maybe I get a [...]
