Every year I make a nice Waldorf salad to go with holiday dinners in place of a heavier fruit salad.
Recently I started making chutneys to go with different meat dishes. I was inspired by my daughter who makes a great Autumn chutney.
What inspired me for this burger was my recent agony of defeat in a local cooking contest, just like the old ABC Wide World of Sports intro. I lost again but won the "people's choice" award.
This is a tweaked version of a recipe I've been making for a few years. I was inspired by a spicy tuna sushi roll with wasabi mayo and tried to translate the flavors into mini-burger or slider.
The ingredients say it all! Country Ham, Vidalia Onions, Mustard Greens and Coca-Cola...can you get any more southern?
My many years spent as an artist and art teacher inspired this burger which blends the sweet and the savory flavors of French cuisine.
I like to use all local ingredients to keep the burgers fresh. There is nothing better than sitting out on the deck mid-autumn as the leaves are changing, with the cool crisp air on your face.
The Curacao Islands and Cholula Chili Lime hot sauce inspired me to create this delicious sliders. Curacao is an island in the southern Caribbean Sea, off the Venezuelan Coast.
The Fall Season, which is a wonderful but fleeting season in Florida
I love the taste of hickory smoke. Where there is good smoke, there is good BBQ. There is nothing like the smell of wood burning for hours in someone's backyard.
The most flavorful meat for a burger is ground chuck (20-25% fat), which tastes great due to its fat content.
During a trip to the Cayman Island's two years ago we tried jerk flavors for the first time.
I spend a lot of time traveling for work overseas. I absolutely love to buy the spices from the country I am visiting and create some American favorites with my new International spices.
I created this recipe thinking of flavor balance. I wanted a burger that packed a lot of punch but also seemed light and refreshing. The grilled pineapple provides sweetness.
I was born and raised in Indiana, which truly is the heartland of America. I’ve definitely tried to bring together a lot of great Indiana-based ingredients in this Big Ten burger.
