BBQ Sauce

We’ve been on the search for the best BBQ sauce without High Fructose Corn Syrup and we recently stumbled upon Laurie McNamara’s version of Sweet Baby Ray’s. We LOVE it.

Ribs

Texas has been my (Michael) home for close to 20 years now. Wide open plains, panoramic sunsets, diverse food, down to earth people, and BBQ are some of my favorite things about this great state. Texas does beef BBQ really well. Brisket (and burnt ends!) will put a smile on my BBQ-sauce-slathered face faster than you…

Watermelon Summer

Here’s a refreshing summer drink we discovered when there was nothing in the house but a watermelon. Enjoy!

Cherries

It’s cherry season and we decided to do a little research on the health benefits of this little stone fruit. Here’s what we found: Cherries are one of the healthiest fruits you can eat! 21 of these little guys have less than 100 calories and 15% of your daily vitamin C needs, but aren’t full…

And because coffee is the second largest international commodity, we care about supporting those that support every person involved in…

Here’s all you’ll need: Kettle Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper Chips Brianna’s Blue Cheese Dressing (we’ve tested different blue cheese dressings and they don’t compare to Brianna’s) Blue cheese Corona…

Tenderloin on the BGE

My parents came over last night with this beautiful cut of beef and ended up being so delicious. I used the Reverse-Sear method of cooking which is pretty simple: • Season with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. • Grill temp to 200°. • Cook until your thermometer reads 10°-15°F below the desired serving temperature….

Bacon Egg and Cheese Cups

Breakfast is one of our favorite meals of the day. When we’re not rushing to get the kids out of the house in the morning, we like to make a good cup of coffee and cook a good breakfast. Our dishes usually include bacon, eggs, bread, really great cheese and bacon (did I say that already?). We’ve mixed…
