A Summer Grilling How To: Build The Ultimate Burger

posted on May 15th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Mmmm, is there really anything as delicious as a hot and juicy cheeseburger stacked high with all the fixings? Especially during the summertime when enjoyed al fresco, a cheeseburger - whether it's made with beef, chicken, turkey, or veggies is just too irresistible to resist! And there's just no need to go out and spend $20 on this kind of deliciousness. Building a gourmet burger at home is actually quite easy... Because with our very own buttery brioche buns, bacon, and choice ground chuck and toppings like caramelized onions, sliced avocado, sharp cheddar cheese, and green leaf lettuce, you can easily make a masterpiece. Here's our How-to for the Ultimate Gourmet Burger It all starts with the meat... If you're using beef - go for 80/20 ground chuck - that means 80% lean, 20% fat. FYI: 1 1/2 lbs makes 4 burgers. 1. Shape meat into 4 uniform 6-ounce patties no more than 3/4 inches thick. Then,  using your thumb, make a slight depression in the middle of each… Read More

Spring Matzo Kugel By a Meal and a Spiel

posted on March 27th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

We are so excited to share a recipe from the very awesome Los Angeles cooking school, Meal and a Spiel! It's perfect for Passover, breakfast the morning after, and leftovers following that! You simply will love this recipe that so beautifully embodies Spring! *** Most savory kugels call for at least twice as many eggs as I use and twice as much matzah. However the notion of eating all that AFTER the Hillel sandwiches, AFTER the gefilte fish, AFTER the matzo ball soup is just too much. We are celebrating liberation from slavery- let’s not re-enslave ourselves with a matzah-rock of indigestion! Light and refreshing, this matzo kugel rings the flavors of spring. A combination of onions, vegetables and herbs are used to accentuate the flavors that will embody Spring at your Passover table, far beyond the parsley on your seder plate. By all means, this makes a wonderful dish to eat throughout the week of Passover. It’s like a frittata with less eggs, so try it for breakfast… Read More

posted on March 12th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Hooray - St. Patrick's Day is on a Saturday this year! And while many of us will be celebrating the festive holiday with the kids by way of wearing green and obliging to some shamrock arts and crafts, some of us just may find the time to sneak in an Irish Coffee (or two). And then of course, there's those of us with no little ones to attend to who can celebrate in real Irish style. Whatever the case, one thing's for certain; this Irish Coffee with Spiked Whipped Cream is absolutely delicious...and maybe a little dangerous too.   Irish Coffee With Spiked Whipped Cream Ingredients: 8 ounces hot and freshly brewed coffee 1 ounce Jameson Irish Whiskey 1 ounce Bailey's Irish Cream 1 teaspoon pure cane sugar For the spiked whipped cream: 1 cup heavy whipping cream 2 tablespoons powdered sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons Bailey's Irish Cream 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract In a mixing bowl, combine whipping cream, sugar, Irish cream, and vanilla… Read More

Game Day Grub: An Easy Recipe For Every Quarter of the Game

posted on January 29th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

The big game is almost upon us and with it means parties complete with BBQ, burgers, beer, and Buffalo chicken wings. Because a fantastic spread of indulgences can make winning that much better...and losing a little more tolerable (strong emphasis on a little). Whether you're hosting or you're contributing to a potluck party, you shouldn't have to stress over cooking - leave all that stress and nail-biting for the game! That's why we're helping you out with 4 easy, tried and true recipes for the big game. One recipe for each quarter...and beers for all at halftime! 1st Quarter: Our Own Homemade Guacamole - Yes, this one is a "cheat." But a really, really good cheat.

Serve it in a pretty bowl and pair with your favorite tortilla chips and your friends will never know you didn't make it! Or - get extra fancy and top it with some… Read More

Game Day Grub: The Ultimate Buffalo Rotisserie Chicken Dip

posted on January 28th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

When it comes to hosting a game day party, the spread of snacks matters almost as much as the spread offense. Okay, that may be a stretch. Forgive us. But in all seriousness, the grub your guests delightfully munch on during those moments of calm is well, kind of important. Perhaps gorging on layers of loaded nachos or piles of crispy buffalo wings makes victory feel that much better. Then again, those same nachos and wings can be somewhat soothing when our team loses too. No matter how you look at it, the food you serve or bring to a game day gathering is gonna get eaten. So why not make it easy on yourself and whip up something super simple and totally foolproof? Like Buffalo chicken dip. We’ve all had it. And when it’s good, it’s really good. Our recipe is one of those really good ones too - the kind you think about for days and then try desperately to recreate. But we’re just going to take the guesswork out of the process for you and give you the best recipe for… Read More

Carnitas Street Tacos

posted on January 18th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

We are without a doubt, living in the land where tacos rank supreme. With street-style taco shops and trucks at very corner, the competition is stiff - which most of the time, means amazing tacos that you just can't get anywhere else (besides Mexico, of course). But sometimes it's fun to plan an elaborate taco night at home. Side note: Remember when taco dinner box kits were a weekly "indulgence"? Oh, nostalgia. We'll leave those taco kits in the past though. Because crafting up cantina tacos at home really isn't that difficult. Short-cuts make it even easier too. Here's our simple recipe for carnitas tacos that is a sure bet, every time.   Carnitas Tacos Ingredients: 2 lb pork shoulder Juice from two limes 1 onion, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon salt 1/2 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 2 cups chicken stock, divided 1/2 cup cooking oil, divided   For building tacos: corn… Read More
