Oh My Gnome! The Heinzelmännchen Burger

So the pieces are finally coming together… …which means, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for… …the assembly of (what we’re calling), HOLY GNOME, THERE’S AN ELK ON MY BURGER!

All-American Waffle Burger

The other day I was talking burgers and breakfast with a former co-worker and it inspired our first blog post: the All-American Waffle Burger! makes 8 sliders To prepare the waffles: 1 cup AP flour ½ cup whole wheat flour 3 ½ tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 1 tablespoon sugar 1 ½ cup milk…

Creamy Tomato Orecchiette and Meatballs

Is this… an actual update… from… The Blueberry Bison?! Woah, woah, woah! It is! I know, I know, I’m in a bit of excited shock too. So what’s been going on?! Well, among other things…

St. Patrick’s Day Savory Banger Cupcake

Guys and gals, I made another thing! And this time, I dreamed it up all by myself. Sounds awesome, right? I KNOW!! I’m all super proud and excited and stuff over here.

Bison Basics: Homemade Spice Rub and Beer Braise

I love making homemade spice mixes. I really do. Why? Because you can literally put almost anything in them: grated fruits, zests, specialty sugars, smoked salts, you name it. The infusion of flavor that you can put into a spice mix is really unlimited. And in turn, you can completely change the dynamic of any…

Blueberry Beans and Bison Franks

As you know from our last post, it’s blueberry bison month (as far as we’re concerned). We wanted to literally make this month all about blueberry and/or bison recipes, but we needed a jumping off point, so we looked at our food calendar. This weekend, Sunday is apparently Beans and Franks Day, so… what better…

I love chickpeas and I’m continually surprised by the way they can take on different forms in various recipes. In the case of these buckeyes, they replace and take on the characteristics of the excessive powdered sugar…

Unfortunately, fast and easy doesn’t always open the door for creativity. Fortunately for you, though, a delicious and easy homemade ketchup recipe is perfect…

ALLIGATOR TACOS WITH HOMEMADE TORTILLAS

Back in September of last year, we visited the new Market District in Solon and went crazy: we were excited to have a Market District closer to home and were equally happy to find so many unique products. It made for quite the shopping trip (and weeks of delicious meals to follow). You already know…

PAN-FRIED FROG LEGS WITH A PURPLE SWEET POTATO AND BATATA HASH

The first time I ever experienced frog legs, I was working at a country club for a French chef. As a young man in a small town, you don’t ever see things like frog legs so I thought they were one of the fanciest things I’d ever encountered. I’ve always been kind of enamored by…
