Mini Ramen Burger Sliders Recipe

I’m sure you’ve seen the craze so I had to hop on it and whip up this Mini Ramen Burger Sliders Recipe.  They are actually pretty simple and super dang tasty.

From there, fry’em up in a little vegetable oil and set them aside.  Here is where you…

Homemade Fettuccini Pasta with Ragu alla Bolognese

Pasta-Ragu-15

There is nothing, I mean nothing like homemade pasta.  Sauce just sticks to them better, they are more tender, more flavorful and just DANG ARE THEY GOOD!  I’m sure to some folks it can be really intimidating to make homemade pasta dough, but I promise it really isn’t that bad.  Heck you can even use a Kitchenaid® to roll out the dough for you.  However, I much prefer rolling it out by hand because that way I can gauge when it’s done by the feel of it.  I also think by doing it by hand you get the full feel…

All summer long I kept feeling as if something were missing in my life…  Around late June I realized it was football Saturdays.  While I do watch a bit of NFL, I am beyond obsessed with college football and everything that comes with it.  That’s right, once the season begins you may catch me watching a late D2 Tuesday night game, because why not?!  Since it’s the shortest season of all the major sports I feel like I have to soak as much in as possible. Along with football comes food and I love grazing all day so that’s why…
