Root Beer BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Root Beer BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

We just made homemade BBQ sauce the other day, but the root beer based BBQ sauce that coats these chicken sandwiches is distinctly different than what we made previously (and just as tasty). There is a mostly sweet but slightly smoky undertone to the sauce. I really enjoyed the addition of the root beer flavor…

(BBQ) Shrimp and (Blue Cheese) Grits

(BBQ) Shrimp and (Blue Cheese) Grits

Dustin and I have not been shy about our newfound love of grits and our obsession with blue cheese. What could be better than combining the two? That’s what I thought when I saw this recipe on 20 Something Cupcakes. It sounded like the perfect brunch to me! These grits were really creamy and cheesy…

Pork Chops with Cherry Barbecue Sauce

Pork Chops with Cherry Barbecue Sauce

It’s definitely easy to incorporate cherries into desserts, but highlighting cherries in a savory dish is slightly more of a challenge. However, I think we did a pretty good job in making this sweet and smoky cherry barbecue sauce from Taste of Home (with the only change being the addition of some freshly squeezed orange…

Brie & Brisket Quesadillas

Brie & Brisket Quesadillas

Great shortcut dinner inspired by The Pastry Queen Cookbook¬†AKA one of the best purchases ever!

BBQ Chickpea Burgers

Dustin and I loved to hit up the slider joint, Little Bigs, while we were back at Rice. We’d walk to the location (while it was open) by the zoo in Hermann Park, and I’d order a couple of black bean sliders with harissa cream while Dustin stuck with the traditional burgers. I used to…

Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I’ve seen Coca Cola used to make roasts and meat glazes, but when I saw this recipe for pulled pork sandwiches that used Dr. Pepper I was definitely sold on trying it out. This dish reminded me of home so much. Dr. Pepper is quintessentially Texan, and even though we really don’t eat pulled pork…

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

The last time we ordered takeout pizza, we faced a dilemma about what pizza to order. We narrowed our topping choices down to our traditional favorite of pepperoni, basil, and black olives, chicken and bacon with ranch dressing, and barbecue chicken. After much deliberation we settled on the pizza with ranch dressing. But ever since…

Pulled BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

Look, the first thing you do when you start a band is talk about your influences. That’s how you figure out what kind of band you want to be. So who do you like? -Jack Black, School of Rock The same is true for cooking. And our influences are clearly biased by our home state.…
