Hamburger Seasoning Mix

Here is another great “Seasoning” mix. This time it is for making burgers.

There is nothing like a great tasting burger right off the grill for dinner. Knowing it is homemade makes it tastes so much better!

This seasoning takes only a few minutes to whip up and you can use it as a seasoning on the burgers while they are being grilled, or in the actual burger when you are mixing/pressing them up. I like to put the seasoning right in the burgers but that is entirely up to you!

I didn’t take an actual picture of the burgers once they were done because really, they mostly all look alike when done lol! The picture below is just a picture I already had of burgers cooking on our grill.

Chicken Marinade for the BBQ

As I am sure you’ve gathered… in this house, they LOVE BBQ season… lol! Whether it be steaks, burgers or whatever, according to Chris everything tastes better cooked on the grill. Chicken is no different and using marinades can up your taste game like nothing else.

Here is a recipe for a quick to whip up marinade that tastes awesome… even when used in to cook the chicken in the oven… but is always better on the grill!

Pork Skewers in a Molasses Marinade

I have to say it’s hilarious watching Chris when this is what we are having for dinner. I swear once his own are eaten he keep s checking Dillon’s plate to see if maybe he didn’t eat all of his. And some times I swear he keeps looking to see if I am watching as if he is going to actually lick the plate lol. It’s okay, one of my greatest pleasures in life is to feed people and even more than that… to see how much they enjoy it! Knowing how much my cooking is enjoyed/appreciated helps keep me motivated to continue and to try different things!

Feta & Garlic Burgers

Here is another easy homemade burger recipe.  I have been having fun experimenting with different combinations since I got the Patty Press at Christmas.  There are just so many different ways to make a burger…. what type of meat, cheese, all the add ins… the possibilities are endless! This is just one of the combinations I made for dinner the other night!

I served them with some crinkled dollar chips I made in the air fryer!

Quick Steak Rub Mix

Yes… I know… a lot of my recipes have had the word “Quick” in them lately (as will the next post), but that seems to be the name of the game this week.  I don’t know if it’s just dealing with the loss of our well loved dog Kita or not but I have not been very motivated this week.

This is a recipe for a very flavourful rub to use on steak, or I suppose any other type of meat on the BBQ.  When I was grocery shopping on Friday sirloin steaks were on for a really good price so I picked up 4 of them.  I wasn’t sure if the boys would eat them all in one sitting…. but they did lol… I guess I shouldn’t have been that surprised.  BBQ steak is one of Chris’ favourite meals… throw in a baked potato or two with sour cream, some mushroom and onion cooked on the BBQ and he is right in his dinner element!

Chris told me that steaks cooked in this rub don’t even require any type of BBQ sauce or steak sauce, they are awesome as they are!

(This recipe would also be great made in bulk and placed in nice jars to gift)

Great Steak Marinade

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before…. Chris LOVES steak. I swear he would eat it every day, although he doesn’t generally complain when I feed him chicken, pork, pasta, or, never mind…. he doesn’t complain as long as I keep him fed lol!

This is a quick marinade to whip up and tastes delicious! You could also use it on pork or chicken if you like but we use it on steak!

Sheet Pan Garlic Butter Mushrooms

When “the kids” were up this past weekend I had chosen to make steaks, baked potatoes and salads for dinner.  And as far as I am concerned, you can’t have steak without mushrooms too!

I found this really good recipe for mushrooms cooked in the oven that I decided to make for this occasion and they were really, really, really good!

I forgot to take pictures once they were cooked because everyone dug in so quickly I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of the final outcome lol so I you will have to see how delicious these look on the page where I found the recipe!

I found the recipe here: https://damndelicious.net/2017/05/16/sheet-pan-garlic-butter-mushrooms/

Cheesy Garlic Dill Potatoes on the Grill

We had a great day yesterday!  The weather was nothing to be desired but Kim and family were up for the day.  The boys went fishing and I got to spend the day with Kim and my gorgeous grandbaby!  What could be better?  I didn’t get a post in but I think family time more than made up for it!!!

This recipe is another way I like to dress up potatoes when cooking them on the grill.  You can cook them in a small aluminum pan like I did or just wrapped in foil…. either way, make sure to give either a quick coat of cooking spray so the cheese in this recipe doesn’t stick to the foil/pan and you miss some of the cheesy goodness!

Potatoes & Veggies on the Grill

There are so many ways you can cook your potatoes and veggies while you are grilling that save having to cook them inside, especially when it’s hot and humid outside.

This recipe is a simple variation for cooking them on the grill. What is your favourite way to grill potatoes and veggies???

Grilled Pork Chops with Balsamic Dijon Marinade

I prepared this for dinner last night.  I started grilling them but thankfully Chris finished. I love to cook but for some reason I hate Bbqing.  I love preparing things to cook on the grill but not the actual grilling… go figure lol!

Both Chris and Dillon ate 2 big pork chops with this marinade and Chris said they cooked well in it and the flavour carried through after grilling.  Maybe I will have to try this marinade on chicken sometime soon!
