I truly enjoy creating recipes with the combined tastes of sweet, smoky, salty, and savory. I also especially enjoy sleeping in late on the weekends.
Being of Italian heritage, we love to grill our favorite foods (sausage, eggplant, peppers, cheese) and have our friends over to enjoy the food and of course drink Sutter wine.
My grandmother used to put raisins in her meatballs. At the time, I thought the idea was a bit strange, however, as I grew older I began to appreciate the taste.
Inspired by a grilling recipe that's a favorite of me and my fiance...
I really enjoy fruit chutneys with pork tenderloin. When I heard about this contest, I decided to see if I could put the chutney inside a burger.
2 pounds ground pork
As a young girl, my mom and I spent hours together cooking and creating in the kitchen. One of our favorite things to make were traditional Monte Cristo sandwiches.
This burger is my delicious salute to the blending of cuisines and cultures in American today.
(I had submitted this recipe earlier, then I noticed that the product must be grilled- so just a slight change). Scrapple of course is a PA tradition stemming from the Pennsylvania Dutch.
South Carolina is one of my absolute favorite places. Of course, BBQ is king in South Carolina (both whole pig and pulled pork sandwiches).
This burger incorporates flavors from one of the most influential ethnic cuisines in America, Chinese cuisine.
