Sweet Tea Chicken Biscuits

The real name of this sandwich was “Sweet Tea Brined Cornbread Crusted Chicken Biscuit with Fried Egg,” and the more accurate description is even longer. However, the sandwich itself, regardless of name length, is one cohesive, Southern-inspired, piece of heaven, and while it seems difficult to make, it’s actually quite easy. **My tip is to …

This year’s biscuit was baked fresh in competition, and then filled with a fried green tomato pickle, fried leeks, a fried egg, and a spicy aioli, and as usual, my bbq sauce incorporated two of my favorite flavors–mustard (Koop’s Arizona Heat) and hard cider (3 Daughters Key Lime Cider).

Sriracha Deviled Crab Sandwich with Key Lime-Bacon Slaw #SundaySupper

For many of us, Labor Day signals the end of summer. However, Labor Day was actually declared a holiday celebrating the social and economic contributions of the American worker, which is me!

Sirloin Patty Melt with Balsamic Figs, Onions & Brie

If you’ve never had a patty melt, it’s what happens when a cheeseburger and a grilled cheese have a baby.  It’s a cheese burger served on (usually) thick sliced & grilled bread, dripping with cheese, and topped with caramelized onions.  Before competing on Cooks vs. Cons, I’d never had one.  I knew the principle, but …

Memorial Day BBQ: Guava-Ale BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwich #SundaySupper

Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, and there’s no better way to kick off summer than a cookout with family & friends.  However, some of us don’t have the best BBQ grill skills, so we have to be creative with our BBQ menus. The quickest and easiest way I know to BBQ without …
