Farfalle with Italian Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

     We’re gonna take a step back from BBQ today and go down a little different path…Pasta! This dish holds a very special place in our hearts. It was actually the very first thing I ever cooked for Mrs. G when we were dating. It was also my first attempt at cooking it. I don’t know… Continue reading Farfalle with Italian Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

I can’t remember the first time I had  cheddarwurst. I vaguely recall eating Hillshire Farm’s Cheddarwurst sometime in my childhood, but that surely… Continue reading Cheddarwurst

My “McRib” Sandwich

     Is there anything more unnatural than the McRib Sandwich? McDonald’s should never have anything to do with BBQ (although for some strange reason, I do like their BBQ sauce on nuggets, but let’s not tell anybody that). Stick to making inferior hamburgers and leave BBQ alone!! (I’ll probably catch some grief for that considering… Continue reading My “McRib” Sandwich

Jimmy Dean-like Breakfast Links

     I got into making sausage about a year and a half ago. Partly because you have no idea what goes into store bought sausage and partly because of my love for sausage. The more I read about it, the more fascinated I became. I knew right away that I was going to try to… Continue reading Jimmy Dean-like Breakfast Links
