    I am all about a yummy burger and this Queso Burger is everything! It all starts with the queso What makes this burger super special is the combo of your favorite mexican inspired yummies and a traditional burger.  the star for me is the Queso.  Growing up in Texas I have been blessed with amazing Mexican/Tex Mex food my whole life.  One of the staples of tex max is queso, aka cheese dip.  After many attempts I have found one that I love and I can make at home in no time. This queso blanco is so good and perfect on this burger or at your next party! Now let’s…

  • Roasted Rib Roast

    My brother blew it out of the park this past Christmas with the Roasted Rib Roast… trust me you need to make this ASAP! It all starts with the seasoning Having a good crust on a prime rib is everything and this recipe gives you a great crust but with just a few ingredients.  To make the rub it is just Montreal Steak Seasoning and some extra pepper and that’s all.  Seriously, it is all we use and just look at that crust! If you do not have Montreal steak seasoning you can use any all purpose seasoning you have, I highly recommend a course seasoning though for a pretty…

  • Beer Braised Short Ribs

    Short ribs = comfort food for me and when it is cool outside ALL I want is comfort food.  Plus the calories don’t count in December… right? Let’s prep… The key to this dish is building flavors upon flavors.   It starts with browning the short ribs, then the veggies & herbs and then the braising liquid and then the gravy.   It starts with the ribs.  For this dish I used boneless as that it what looked the best at the butcher.  They were about 3-4 inches long, and about 1 – 1 1/2 inches thick.  If you wanted to use bone in you can, just may need to…

    Pot Roast is one of my most favorite Comfort foods.  You know like cookies, casseroles or your favorite cake.  Comfort food is all I am craving these days.  I know I should be focusing on eating healthier and all that, but honestly all I want is food that warms my soul.  Roast is one of my most favorite comfort foods and this roast is my MOST favorite.  Fall Apart Pot Roast To me the mark of a GREAT pot roast is if it falls apart.  I mean is there anything better than a super tender pot roast that literally falls apart when you stick a fork into it?  I don’t…

  • Hamburger Steak with Onion Gravy … Yes, Please

    Hamburger Steak may feel a little old school but I tell you…this hamburger steak is AMAZING!  Don’t believe me… try it. Oh the Onions… So fun fact, I have not always been the biggest fan of onions.  Yep so I never have onions on my burger or hot dog, or in my salads.  I really only love onions when they are browned, like in this gravy, or onion soup, or cut up small for a hint of flavor.  I know, weird but it is just how I am.   These onions are made even better as they are cooked in the same skillet as the hamburger steaks just adding even…

  • KETO MEATLOAF – you NEED this in your life

    KETO Meatloaf is the epitome of comfort food in my book.  This dish takes me back to my childhood but with an update making it KETO and kid friendly. Mini in size…BIG in flavor I made this meatloaf in muffin pans not only because it makes it super easy but also because they are just so darn cute!!  Each little meatloaf is a little bigger than a meatball making them a fun size.  You can have a few for dinner and then a few for lunch the next day. I also love the size for kids.  My niece and nephew loved them! OHHHH the glaze! My favorite part of a…

  • KETO Queso Burger

    This KETO Queso Burger is everything you need in your life RIGHT NOW!  This whole burger kinda happened by accident.  I was craving a burger but I also wanted Mexican food, well really just quest dip, so I decided to marry the two into this amazing KETO QUESO BURGER! It all starts with the burger (and then the toppings) For this burger I went with a 80/20 blend of ground chuck.  If you wanted to use a 90/10 blend or 70/30 blend go for it, just make sure to adjust cooking time as needed.  The leaner the meat the faster it will cook.   I used 1 1/2 pounds of…
