Pesto Pull Bread

Pesto Pull Bread

I love my traeger grill and I always follow their new recipes.  I saw an instagram picture from Traeger for Pesto Pull Bread and I had to try it for myself.  While I did not follow the recipe, I did create my own from the picture. Man, it was delicious! If you are looking for a great appetizer, this is it!  Plus, I used the oven so this recipe is for everyone!

Twice Baked Potatoes

Twice Baked Potatoes

When I was growing up, my Grandma Donna would always make twice baked potatoes for me.  They were my favorite.  So, I decided that I had better find her recipe and make some for my kids.  My version has a little twist, however.  It includes your favorite magical meat….BACON!!!!  This recipe is simple and super delicious!  Though it takes a little longer to make than a simple baked or mashed potato, it is totally worth it your time and effort.  This may even be a great recipe to try for your Thanksgiving dinner!!!

Smash Burgers

Smash Burgers

Smash Burgers are quite possibly the greatest burgers around!  You take seasoned ground beef and smash it onto a griddle.  You let the griddle caramelize one side of the burger and then flip, allowing a super tasty crust to form on the other side.  These burgers cook quickly, allowing for the finished product to be juicy and delicious!  These are hands down the best burgers ever.  I love Smash Burgers!

Queso Fundido

Queso Fundido

Dana and I love Chuy’s Tex-Mex Restaurant!  If you have one near you I recommend that you try it ASAP.  Last year during their Hatch Chili Festival they had a limited time special menu that included Queso Fundido. What is Queso Fundido you ask?  Well it is freaking glorious!  Basically it is a Chorizo and cheese dip that you serve on warm flour tortillas.  It is quite possibly the best cheese dish that I have ever had!  The ooey gooey cheese and chorizo on a warm tortilla is straight up gold.  My mouth is watering as I write this up!  You have to try it.

White Pizza

White Pizza

Dana and I are huge fans of pizza.  Dana’s favorite pizza is a white pizza.  White pizza is different from your average pizza, as it does not have a red tomato based sauce.  White pizza has a garlic oil base and is then topped with a trifecta of cheeses.  It is basically, cheesy garlicky awesomeness.

A couple of weeks ago, I made a batch of Bacon Onion Jam.  It was the one of the greatest condiments that I have ever had.  I love it so much, that I put it on everything.  During one of my tests I put it on a grilled cheese sandwich.  After a little testing with various cheeses and breads, I discovered the perfect combination.  It was the most delicious grilled cheese that I had ever had.  You have to check it out!

Three Cheese Manicotti

Homemade Manicotti

My wife Dana is from New York City! When we visit NYC, we like to purchase food items to bring back Virginia.  One of those food items is fresh pasta.  Our favorite is Manicotti.  You just can’t beat the flavor of the pasta, from the pasta stores in New York.  Since we haven’t been to NY in a while, our stash has run dry.  So I wanted to surprise Dana with some handmade Manicotti.  I must say the three cheese Manicotti was freaking fantastic.  Even Dana said it was the best that she had eaten.  That says a lot.

Sausage Farmhouse Scramble

Sausage Farmhouse Scramble

Dana and I went to Hash House A Go Go a last year when we went to Mohegan Sun Casino.  It was an amazing breakfast.  We both had a farm house scramble.  Basically it is a biscuit topped with griddled potatoes, veggies, meat, eggs and cheese.  Basically the best combination possible.  We have been talking about it for a while now.  After making homemade biscuits the other day, we thought it would be a great idea to make our own farmhouse scrambles at home.  My take uses sausage and a pepper medley.  Totally Awesome!

Inside and Out Grilled Cheese

Inside and Out Grilled Cheese

I love a good ole American Cheese Grilled cheese sandwich.  However, I have been introduced to various other methods of cooking and found the best grilled cheese ever!  This involves using a lot of butter, white bread and shredded cheese.  Yep, no more american cheese.  Ok, you really can’t call it cheese, but it is tasty!  This sandwich is loaded with cheese and is even topped with cheese.  The cheese is fried right into the bread giving it a crusty, cheesy awesomeness!

Hatch Green Chile Queso

Hatch Green Chile Queso

Dana and I are huge fans of Green Chiles.  We eat them whenever we can, but Hatch chiles are hard to come by in Virginia.  A couple of weeks ago the fine people over at http://www.hatch-green-chile.com/ provided us with 5lbs of medium Hatch green chiles.  These are top notch chiles, fire roasted, seeded and then flash frozen. … Read moreHatch Green Chile Queso
