Favorite Coleslaw Dressing

Favorite Coleslaw Dressing by Salad Foodie

A basic mayonnaise-based dressing that we make ahead and have on hand when crunchy coleslaw is on the menu for lunch or dinner. This dressing keeps well for several weeks refrigerated in a mason jar, a vintage bottle from the thrift store, or recycled dressing container (see photos). Yield is a little over 2 cups and will dress a…

Citrus Pepper Chicken Bacon Cheeseburgers

Citrus Pepper Chicken Bacon Cheeseburgers by Patti Fisher

Citrus Pepper Bacon Chicken Cheeseburgers because Ken loves cheeseburgers or anything with cheese and bacon. Patti wanted to make the burgers a little healthier and she loves chicken. These were super simple and full of flavor. A definite for our next camping or tailgating adventure. I think the Briggs Citrus Pepper Seasoning just…

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

A nice choice for a summer cookout or picnic, this pasta salad can be made up to a day ahead for convenience. My pasta choice for this is ditalini, a small pasta often used in soups (this can be hard to locate but Barilla sells a one pound box.) Or substitute your own small pasta FAV such as elbows or shells.

Lotta Cheese Cheese Burger

Lotta Cheese Cheese Burger by Patti Fisher

We got a complaint from some friends that when they go out for burgers the meat is paper thin and the cheese, if you can find any, is tasteless. We had no choice but to say “See you tomorrow, come hungry!” Everyone was happily stuffed and knew they were eating a cheese burger. They may be back again tomorrow. Not only was there 2…

Stuffed Double Cheese Bacon Burgers

Stuffed Double Cheese Bacon Burgers by Patti Fisher

Ken made his amazing cold smoked cheese again and before Patti ate it all for snacks we decided to use some for recipes. We had been talking about stuffed burgers for awhile and these were so good. Patti stuffed them with our cold smoked mozzarella, then topped the burgers with bacon squares and smoked cheddar. Perfect. There aren’t a…

The Cajun Burger

The Cajun Burger by Patti Fisher

Patti had a hankering for Jambalaya, but Ken had to have a bacon cheese burger. So, we compromised and made a burger with our favorite Chef of the Future Cajun Seasoning on a bacon cheeseburger topped with extra large shrimp. It came out great, especially adding our bacon square. Our first ingredient in our cooking is imagination, but…

Stuffed Burger Dogs by Patti Fisher

It’s the time of year for burgers and hot dogs! Hence the burger dog, but no wieners were harmed in this recipe. Patti wrapped her Cattleman’s Grill Steakhouse seasoned hamburger around a 2oz. log of extra sharp cheddar cheese, rolled it into a hot dog shape and served it on hot dog buns with our favorite hot dog condiments…which are…

Chewy, slightly soft texture with a hint of caramel pecan, these attractive cookies make a nice snack for company with coffee, tea or milk. Sometimes we bakers just have to break out of the oatmeal-raisin cookie rut, and these certainly do!
