Family Dinner – Ribeyes

      Friday night, we had a little family dinner over at my parents house. Momma G had bought some lovely ribeyes for the occasion. Knowing what was going to come, I came armed with a batch of spices so that everybody could flavor up their own steaks. When my Mom pulled the 6 steaks out of… Continue reading Family Dinner – Ribeyes

Red Eye Express Pork Tenderloin

     My brother (who from now on will be called GM), came over last night to exchange cars with my wife as she was going to need a truck for work today. Since he was nice enough to let her borrow his truck, I decided I’d go ahead and feed him some dinner. A quick run… Continue reading Red Eye Express Pork Tenderloin

New Year’s @ The Ranch, Part 2

     Sunday at the ranch seemed a bit quieter than the day before.

Swamp Balls (aka Sausage Cheese Balls)

     A few people have asked for the recipe for the sausage cheese balls that I made at the Plano Outlaw Eggfest two weekends ago, so I feel obliged to put it up here. It’s not a very complicated recipe, and you can find it all over the net in many different variations, but this… Continue reading Swamp Balls (aka Sausage Cheese Balls)

Red Eye Express Pork Chops on the BGE

Stacie and I usually don’t cook a lot of pork chops. I’m not real sure why, but it just never occurs to us. Sunday, though, I got a craving for pork chops. We had to make a run to the store anyway, so I thought I would stop by the butcher and see what he had… Continue reading Red Eye Express Pork Chops on the BGE
