Steamed Bun Sliders

I know that I may be a little late to the party when in comes to the whole slider fad, but I don’t think of food as something that should only be enjoyed when it is popular.  If you think about the whole fad of sliders of the last couple of years is cyclical any…

Cinnamon Sugar Donut French Toast

I absolutely love french toast.  I think it is one of the best breakfast foods ever. Every time I see a new french toast recipe I always like to try it. I like to use slightly stale bread for most of the french toast recipes I make. I was checking through my pinterest feed the…

Oven Fries

It is no surprise that we love fried potatoes in our house. We are trying to cut down on the deep-frying, hence the use of our air fryer. So I wanted to come up with a way we could have fries that would be equally good in the air fryer or the oven. I was…

Pittsburgh Style Steak

A few weeks ago I was at the beach with my parents and siblings for my father’s birthday. For his birthday dinner my dad wanted steaks on the grill, so I was asked to man the grill and prepare the steaks. Luckily the house we were renting had a nice kettle grill so I was…

Ritz Fried Chicken

This week I decided to do some fried chicken thighs in the air fryer. I typically like to do a pickle juice brine when I do fried chicken in the air fryer so it is like a combo fried pickle and fried chicken. This time the fried chicken was kind of a last minute thought…

Vichy Carrots

One of my favorite side vegetable side dishes is carrots. I usually make roasted carrots. Now this week I was clearing up space on my DVR and was watching IRON CHEF AMERICA, it was battle swordfish and Chef Marc Forgione, one of my culinary idols, made Vichy Carrots. I had had them before but had never attempted…

Crockpot Sloppy Joes

As I said in my other Sloppy Joe post School Lunch Sloppy Joes I love Sloppy Joes and I also mentioned that in the area of Pennsylvania I live in we have people from North East PA that call this barbecue and also people from Western Maryland that call it Steamers. There are many online debates about…
