Sassy Sriracha Double Decker Cheeseburger

Sassy Sriracha Double Decker Cheeseburger

Piled high with flavor and oozing with goodness, the Sassy Sriracha Double Decker Cheeseburger is a double dose of heaven between two buns. And, as part of #BurgerMonth, I have an amazing 8-item giveaway going on! Many years ago, when my husband played computer games, he had a flight simulator, complete with joystick. I would get a kick out of watching him, engrossed so deeply in what he was doing that he'd sway back and forth, as[read more]

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce

 Bring the flavors of the Mediterranean home with quick, easy and absolutely delicious Chicken Souvlaki wraps smothered in a fresh, rich Tzatziki Sauce. There are so many things I love about Greece.

Poached, fried, scrambled or deviled, I'm a[read more]
Bourbon-and-Vanilla-Brined Pork Chops

Bourbon-and-Vanilla-Brined Pork Chops

These Bourbon-and-Vanilla-Brined Pork Chops may be the highlight of my summer grilling (and summer hasn't even started yet). They're absolutely amazing. Be still my heart, the grilling issues are beginning to appear. So far I've only seen two, but considering that we're still just dipping our toes in the beginnings of May, I know that there are many more magazines dedicated to my favorite method of cooking to come. I saw this recipe in Fine Cooking's newest[read more]
