Homemade Hamburgers

We have finally perfected our homemade crispy shoestring onion recipe! Thanks to a good buttermilk soak and some lovin’ from Lady FoodObs. Makes the perfect burger topper.

Detroit Pizza

We made another outstanding homemade Detroit Pizza! This time in lieu of red sauce, I made a white, creamy Parmesan/garlic sauce. Then topped with chunks of grilled chicken, crispy bacon and a pound of cheese!

Penne Alla Vodka

Detroit Pizza

Another homemade masterpiece, this time Detroit Pizza! This is a style of pizza developed back in the day in Detroit, MI. It is a rectangular pizza that has a thick, crisp crust and toppings to the edge. A ton a cubed cheese is what makes this pie. Special pan available from Amazon; Lady FoodObs perfected the dough recipe; the rest is history. Our new favorite homemade pizza. Recipe was inspired by Jeff Mauro on the Food Network.

BBQ Chicken

Outstanding homemade BBQ chicken legs from my trusty Weber kettle! Paired perfectly with some Sweet Baby Ray’s and a nice, cold Modelo Especial.

Italian Mac & Cheese

Outstanding homemade Italian style mac & cheese! Made with cavatappi pasta, a ricotta/mozzarella bechamel and Italian sausage.

Kentucky Hot Brown

We recently tried our hand at making this remarkable dish called Kentucky Hot Brown. A traditional American hot sammich originally created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY back in the day, 1926. The Hot Brown is basically an open faced hot sandwich consisting of turkey, bacon and tomato, covered in a Mornay sauce, then baked or broiled until everything is hot, bubbly, crispy and delicious. Perfect dish for a cast iron skillet.

Mac & Cheese

Outstanding homemade Italian style Macaroni and cheese!

Carnitas Tacos 

Outstanding homemade carnitas tacos!  Our slow cooker pork shoulder yields so many amazing meals. 

Homemade Ramen 

Recently made a kicked up homemade ramen thing that turned out pretty tasty!  Just start with one of those cheap grocery store ramen packs and add some cut up green onions, sprouts, sriracha, lime, etc.
