Are you ready for fancy homemade burgers? We hope so! We love burgers, all kinds of burgers. Regular beef burgers. Salmon burgers. Bacon burgers. Matt and Stacy’s 50/50 burgers. Bison burgers. I could go on, but you might get bored. So, instead, I’m just going to tell you about our latest experiment so we can get down to business: sharing with you a recipe for fancy homemade burgers!
A couple weekends ago, I was hankering for burgers but Brent was simply not in the mood for more beef. (Admittedly, it had been a week of steak, chili and roast beef.) So, we were staring at the selections of meats available at our local Whole Foods, hungry and indecisive. Finally, he grabbed ground pork, ground veal, and ground lamb. My eyes lit up. I couldn’t wait to get home and put them together.
This recipe seems “fancy” because, growing up in my house, veal and lamb were special foods for special occasions. But these fancy homemade burgers are actually quite simple to make! We hope you’ll enjoy this casual and delicious new twist on an old favorite. Continue reading →
Tonight, we bring to you something new and exciting just in time for tomorrow’s big game: a paleo blooming onion! It’s one of our more involved recipes—be sure to have a friend on hand to help—we think it is worth the effort. Who needs a restaurant when you’ve got this recipe?!
We appreciate that fried foods are traditionally not regular parts of our everyday diet, but for special occasions, tapioca starch is really a great product that gets the job done with minimal negative properties. Sarah, over at The Paleo Mom, has done a nice write-up of different paleo baking ingredients. Check that out for more info, or just follow along for the recipe—be sure to follow along to the bottom for over a dozen other Super Bowl worthy recipes!
This stuffed mushroom recipe came about somewhat in a “kitchen sink” experiment. We had crab meat in the refrigerator we wanted to use and mushrooms that we bought and needed to be used.
These little crab stuffed mushrooms are delicious, and make a great finger food. We hope to make it again as soon as we have an opportunity to go to or host a gathering of friends and family. Continue reading →
We eat a lot of spinach. It’s one of our favorite vegetables. We eat sautéed spinach as a side with at least a few breakfasts, lunches, or dinners each week. As delicious as sautéed spinach is, sometimes we need a little variety.
So, in the excitement of all the holiday cooking, I decided to try my hand at spinach soufflé. How hard could it be, right? Honestly, it’s not that hard–if you have a mixer. I can whip egg white by hand, but the mixer makes it so much easier! The real trick, is patience. Be patient with your egg whites and you shall be rewarded. Give this recipe a try. You’ll see what I mean.
Growing up, corn was a regular part of my diet. Corn was my favorite vegetable; little did I know it was actually a grain. We ate it all sorts of ways–grilled corn on the cob, frozen corn microwaved and seasoned with salt and butter, creamed corn over mashed potatoes, cornbread, etc. My absolute favorite was cornbread. Those dense, slightly sweet squares of golden goodness never lasted long.
