Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

These dang chicken wings are the reason football season even exists. Seriously, I mean… why even take the time to watch football if you don’t have a gallon of Honey BBQ sauce smeared all over your face? It’s obviously the best way to watch! I’ll betcha those football players down there would even sneak a bucket or two of these onto the bench if they could. Now THAT is something I would watch. The quarterback has the football in one hand and a wing in the other. Classic. Who a

World’s Best Baked Beans

The most magical of the fruits. You guys are probably way too mature to get that joke. Unfortunately, I’m sitting here giggling to myself and singing that song over and over in my head. Great. Now it’s stuck in there. ANYWAY… These are hands down the best baked beans in the history of the entire world. I mean do you see the bacon on there? Bacon makes everything better just by being around. I automatically feel like a better person just by being in the proximity of bacon. Thi

Recipes for the Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July, tomorrow! I thought today would be a good day to remind you of some recipes that will be a hit at your Fourth of July BBQ. What shall we start with? Drinks! This Cucumber Punch is easy to throw together and super refreshing on a hot summer day. By far the most popular recipe on the blog. This Brazilian Lemonade will seriously blow you and your guests away. A few mushrooms, a few onions and a little bit of A.1. makes these sirloin burgers extra special. G

Raspberry Jello Salad

I’ve been going a little bit crazy over raspberries lately. I’ve found myself wanting to put them in absolutely everything. And I basically have… recipes to come. I can’t wait until I get a raspberry plant of my own put in my yard. Let’s be honest though, those raspberries will probably never make it into a recipe because they are just so good. Heck, they probably won’t even make it to the inside of my house after being picked. First I need to learn how to keep a plant alive,

Maple BBQ Glazed Salmon

This was some of the best salmon EVAH. It only takes a handful of ingredients, and fifteen minutes of your time to get to this point. Staring down the barrel of some of the most delicious salmon you’ve ever tasted, that is. This is a recipe from Averie Cooks and I’m here to tell you that her recipes have NEVER disappointed. Not once. If you’ve never been to her site you NEED to run as fast as you can and take a look. I don’t really know what the internet equivalent is of runn

A.1. Burger with Mushrooms and Onions

Vegetarians, shield your eyes. Things are about to get delicious around here. When I was young, I thought that A.1. was actually called “AL”, and to this day my family calls steak sauce “AL”. By young I mean I was like 14 years old and totally should have known better. Whoops. AL isn’t just for steak anymore, friends. It’s now for burgers, and vegetables and bathing in and drinking with a straw… Mr. T is under the impression that you ruin a good steak by dumping AL all over

Carrabba’s Italian Grill’s Filet Bryan

OHMYGOSH OHMYGOSH OHMYGOSH you guys. I have been craving Carrabba’s Italian Grill’s Filet Bryan ever since I moved to California. The closest one to me is like 12 hours away, and I didn’t think it would be very responsible of me to leave my beautiful baby girl and my hunka burnin’ love for a piece of meat. Now matter how delicious and perfect that piece of meat may be. So I figured I better learn how to make it at home. I still can’t believe I did it. I may or may not have cr

Grill Seasoning & Grill Baste

Grilled Salmon

This one’s for you Aunt Alice! It’s easy, it’s fast, it’s delicious. The best kinds of dinners are easy fast and delicious. I, unfortunately, do not own a grill. So I will give you the instructions for the grill, and for the oven. If you have the option to use a grill, PLEASE do so. It imparts a flavor that cannot be mimicked in an oven. Don’t get me wrong… it’s still super good from the oven, but ya’ll just need to trust me. Grilled Salmon 2016-01-23 16:27:21 This grilled sa

Ribs

This recipe. This is a Famous Julie original. Every year for our birthdays my sweet momma gives us the option of choosing what we eat for dinner that night. You know your momma can cook when you are excited to eat at home on your birthday, instead of going to a restaurant. Pretty sure after she whipped these puppies out several years ago every single person in my family requested them for their birthday for years and years. In fact, hey mom? Can you make these for my birthday

Pork Chops

I am fully aware that these are not the size of normal pork chops. That’s why I’m approximately 87.9% sure that these are dinosaur chops. I don’t have any other evidence to suggest that these actually are from dinosaurs besides their sheer size, but that’s good enough for me. Pork Chops 2016-01-24 15:11:47 Pork chips make for a quick, easy, delicious meal that can be thrown together any night of the week.
