Beef Fajita Burger

Beef Fajita Burger

We spent 4th of July with this delicious monstrosity of a burger in our bellies. Inspired by this chicken fajita burger, we replaced the chicken fajitas with grilled skirt steak marinated in lime, orange juice, and tequila. Queso dripping out of the sides and a little guacamole on top makes it the perfect ode to…

Caprese Burgers

Caprese Burgers

We’ve made caprese sandwiches before, but we’ve never put all of that goodness together with a big juicy beef patty. It was a good decision. I’d been dreaming of    putting creamy burrata on top of a burger (it’s sort of been one of my recent food obsessions), so I decided why not include all…

Beer Braised Short Ribs with Five Cheese Polenta

Beer Braised Short Ribs with Five Cheese Polenta

For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been buying our meats at a local butcher shop. It isn’t cheap, but the quality and selection of meats is way better than that of our local Whole Foods, which ultimately we haven’t been very impressed with compared to our former Bellevue one. We purchased an awesome grass-fed…

Perfect (But Basic) Cheeseburgers with Crispy Onion Rings

Perfect (But Basic) Cheeseburgers with Crispy Onion Rings

Sometimes the classics are the best. Despite our desire to be super creative in the kitchen, sometimes you just want a simple, juicy cheeseburger. We want to make an elevated cheeseburger with high quality ingredients but nothing too wacky. We went with a basic beef patty, cheddar, onions, and tomato on a poppy seed bun.…

Guinness Beef Stew + Irish Soda Bread

Guinness Beef Stew + Irish Soda Bread

Yesterday was quite the crazy day. In addition to it being St. Patty’s Day, we awoke at 6:25 to our first earthquake in LA— the Shamrock Shake. It was a 4.4 on the Richter scale, so strong enough to be significantly felt (the girls were pretty freaked, Bella especially, and we could hear everything rattling…

Animal Style Cheeseburger Pizza

Animal Style Cheeseburger Pizza

Dustin thinks we should take this idea to In-N-Out and try to sell it to them. I have to admit that after eating it, my ever-present craving for an In-N-Out Burger, Animal Style was completely gone because honestly, this was so much better. This pizza far exceeded my expectations, and this pizza was my idea. Basically this…

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

Erin mentioned this meal idea, and I had already agreed before she got to “sloppy”. I love Philly cheesesteaks, and the idea of turning it into sloppy joe style was really interesting. Cooking this up, the kitchen started to smell so good. You have onions, bell peppers, ground beef, mushrooms cooking and emitting such a…

Chimichurri & Flank Steak Pizza

Chimichurri & Flank Steak Pizza

I feel like it’s been forever since we posted a pizza, not since before we moved to California (unless you count this cauliflower crust one, which was good, but I wouldn’t consider it a true pizza). Dustin had this brilliant idea to use chimichurri as the sauce for a pizza, so we basically turned this…

Steak & Cambozola Grilled Cheese with Raspberry Balsamic Drizzle

Steak & Cambozola Grilled Cheese with Raspberry Balsamic Drizzle

At a food truck back in Seattle, we ordered the most amazing grilled cheese sandwich called the Purple Haze. It is this amazing combination of blackened hangar steak with triple cream borgonzola (it has the veins of blue cheese like gorgonzola, but is soft and spreadable like a brie) on parmesan crusted sourdough bread with potato chips…

Peppercorn Crusted Filet + Rosemary Smashed Potatoes

Peppercorn Crusted Filet + Rosemary Smashed Potatoes

In edition number two of “fancy dinner and wine from our trip night,” we made peppercorn crusted filets with the most amazing smashed potatoes with just a hint of rosemary. Dustin claims he divided the potatoes equally between us (I claim he gave himself slightly more, which is justified considering how much I normally eat)…
