Swedish Meatballs

When we lived in Minnesota, there were two places that offered some of the best Swedish meatballs ever. Sadly, both Aquavit and the Grill Room at Macy’s have been long closed but I was able to secure elements of those recipes before they disappeared.  I took those elements, experimented a […]

Restaurant Quality Steak Seasoning and Technique

Steak at home is always a trick. Of course, there is no replacement for great meat but, few folks can always afford “real” prime steaks, order Allen Brothers online, or pick up the occasional Wagyu beef at their grocery store or butcher shop. Many people believe all you need for […]

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Pork Chops for Grilling

A while back we visited Wisconsin and son-in-law Mark grilled us some bacon wrapped stuffed pork chops for dinner. They were great and I left wanting to not just replicate the butcher’s recipe, but add some tricks I learned over the years related to the chops and vegetables that were […]

Well it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day so we were asked if we have a favorite corned beef and cabbage recipe. We do but in truth, almost all such recipes are similar and contain the same ingredients. Search the internet for the best recipes and you’ll see that’s true. Ours is […]

Pork Tenderloin

How do you make a pork loin delicious my friends? Only one way. You marinate it. Yep, if you want to move away from mediocre often dry pork loin, you just have to marinate it and then pop it on the grill! Sure, we’ve had many pork loins over the […]

Smoked Pork Shoulder (Pulled Pork)

Making this at home spoiled us from ever fully enjoying pulled pork elsewhere. The juicy flavor and texture becomes apparent as soon as you pull the shoulder blade bone out of the meat after smoking. Some people have tried this without injecting the meat but we personally find that there […]

Kentucky Meatloaf

There are a million and one meatloaf recipes, so why is this one included as one of the best Kentucky tasting meatloaf recipes? Well, it is not only tasty as all heck but it’s another secret family recipe we think you find unique. It takes a little more time than […]
