I’m not giving up on summer! In something that will not be my last hurrah for the season I made some incredible hamburgers for the family. Everyone enjoyed my Thai Chili Burgers with Caramelized Onions and Cheese. They are tasty and moist, thanks to a few tricks that I have learned from listening to Ted Reader. These burgers are huge and beefy with a nice finishing heat thanks to the thai chili sauce. Hidden inside the Thai Chili Burgers are chunks of roasted garlic, caramelized onions and melted cheese! Served with all of the fixin’s, this burger satisfied our hunger in a big way.
You may notice that I am using a different looking grill in the photos. I am one of the very lucky people that have the pleasure of trying out a prototype grill. I’ve named him Larry, but he’s the new TravelQ™. Larry has two burners, so I can do direct and indirect grilling, even smoking! I baked peanut butter cookies on him the first night. They came out beautifully, although the gluten free flour I used was really gross. But this new TravelQ™ is awesome! I got 10 Thai Chili Burgers on him. I also was able to grill some Bison Ribeye steaks over high heat, while warming the baked potatoes and searing the carrots and asparagus over low heat! Alright enough gushing about Larry. The husband may get jealous. AHHH who am I kidding! He loves Larry too!
Also the bench I was using to grill on initially encumbered the lid, so I had to move him to the plastic deck box. The bottom of the grill didn’t get hot at all! I was touching the drip pan bare handed while grilling at high heat! Speaking of high heat, the new TravelQ™ gets up to 400°F in about 5 minutes! But SHHHHHHHH!!! Don’t tell anyone about Larry. He’s still a secret.

Blood Orange Salmon Roasted On A Plank; visually it’s stunning. The delicate scent caresses your nose. The fish all but melts on your tongue. The sauce is sticky and tangy and sweet. The whole meal is incredibly light as well.View Details
Such Spicy Garlic
The Super Garlicky Thai Chicken was tangy and spicy with all the garlic you could ever want to consume. I served it with leftover potatoes and loads of green veggies, but over rice would be superb.View Details
With Candied Bacon
Basically I saw this and said the words Stout & Chocolate Cheesecake With Candied Bacon to my husband, the Baron of Baking. Stunned, he stopped everything and slowly turned to me. “Yes” was all he said.View Details
With Roasted Potatoes
Glazed carrots and roasted potatoes were both always on the menu when it came to any major family holiday meal. These dishes were prepared in the same way every time and passed down from mother to daughter for at least four generations. Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother’s mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.View Details
