Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf Sandwich

This is one of those Times when you have to try to make lemons out of lemonade.  I had the idea to make a stuffed meatloaf / meatloaf roll to mimic a Philly Cheesesteak. Ingredients 2 lbs Ground Beef 2 Eggs Bread crumbs Provalone cheese Cheez Whiz Nature’s Seasons Water Rice paper (optional and trial…

Peach Crisp

My first peach dish of the year was what I call a “standard Bisquick cobbler”.  The Bisquick batter appeared to be a little thin and I added a little extra peach to the mixture, so the cobbler turned out to be a little doughy.  The flavor was still good, but I didn’t get that nice…

Grilled Palisade Peaches

August in Colorado means Palisade peaches.  While Georgia may be the peach state and peaches are plentiful throughout the South, the dry clean air, and altitude in Palisade team up to give us beautiful juicy peaches. I’m not a big fruit person, but peach pie and peach cobbler conjur up memories of many happy times…

Yin-Yang Flower Pots

I saw the files for these Yin-Yang pots on Thingverse while browsing a few weeks ago and ended up making a couple of sets along with some spare parts.  Who knew there could be so many options for Yin-Yan? My original idea was for simple succulent pots with black or white (as appropriate) media at…

Thanksgiving Meatloaf

After doing the Reimagined Turducken I was thinking about a “Turducken Meatloaf”.  I put that on the back burner since I wasn’t totally enamored with the Reimagined Turducken. It did get me wondering if I could get the taste of Thanksgiving in a meatloaf.  I snooped around a little on the internet and saw that my…

Turducken Reimagined

For several years I have been intrigued by the idea of a Turducken.  Duck is a rather exotic meat in my mind (I think I’ve only had it 2-3 times at most) and is not readily available unless you go to a specialty store. My last experience with duck was in Vietnam.  I saw a…

Smoked Buffalo Wings – New Gadget

The other day while browsing my local appliance store, I saw a “smoking gun”.  Not because it had just been fired, but because it is used as a tool for finishing food with smoke essence.  The gadget was in the $100 range so I thought it must provide a heat source for smoking the wood…

Taco Meatloaf X 2

Our sixth stop in our journey through A Meatloaf in Every Oven is the Taco Meatloaf.  The recipe inspired a super easy knock-off, so I made them both and did a side by side comparison! Ingredients Original                                      …

KOREAN BBQ Sandwiches with Kimchi

David Chang talks about the similarities of foods in different countries in the Mind of a Chef. We have noodles In almost every culture the world over.  How about substituting coleslaw with kimchi? And Southern BBQ with Korean BBQ (Bulgogi). This was really pretty simple.  I bought nice pork shoulder during my weekly trip to the…
