Shrimp au Gratin

Shrimp au Gratin for our date night this week we wanted something light, but especially delicious. We’ve also gotten requests for Lenten recipes.

The pork just flaked apart with the aromas of oranges and a kiss of citrus flavor and was just screaming to be wrapped up in a…

Grilled Peaches Redux

Grilled Peaches Redux, big, beautiful peaches are in season again and Patti brought home some nice one for us to grill. Grilled Peaches are a simple dessert that folks just love.

Country Ribs Texas Style

  Country Ribs Texas Style, we love ribs in any form. These are also known as country strips. They were thick and meaty with a bone in (Patti’s preference), but they also come boneless. Either way is just right seasoned with Briggs True Texas Seasoning and thickly basted with Briggs True Bourbon Bacon Barbeque Sauce and a “Kiss of Smoke”. So tender, and so Good!!!…
