Down & Dirty Prime Rib

Down & Dirty Prime Rib because most folks think this cut of meat is way too expensive and way too difficult. Patti was at the market the other day to buy hamburger which was $4.35 a pound, next to it was prime rib roast at $4.77 a pound. A definite “no brainer”. Plus, our gas grill has a rotisserie. Perfect! We used our Date Night…

Potato Tart, Bacon Bacon Bacon

Potato Tart, Bacon Bacon Bacon, our thanks to Chef Michael Smith for this idea! It’s an awesome side dish, but would work well as a main dish.

She seared the lamb in a cast iron Dutch oven and then made a sauce to cook them in. Followed with creamy blue cheese garlic mashed potatoes that was incredible. Topped off with Patti’s zesty bacon sausage stuffed mushrooms.…

Diablo Sliders, for our Super Bowl Tailgater party we wanted the “Slap your Momma Big Beef flavor”. So thought we would do some Diablo Sliders with the big beef flavor of chuck roast.

Hen Party Doins

Hen Party Doins was a great hen party for Patti and some special lady friends. Nothing beats a ladies’ night than having our own personal chef aka Ken. The hens loved the hens. Rock Cornish Game hens that is. Seasoned to perfection with Chef of the Future Orange Ginger Pepper Seasoning and coated with our Grandville’s Mild BBQ Jam. It’s called jam because it’s thick…
