Buttermilk Biscuits with Strawberry-Lemon Jam
The whole family loves these big, fluffy biscuits with plenty of butter and drizzles of our sticky-sweet Five Marys golden honey. When I have fresh strawberries in the fridge—especially if they are past their best days—I’ll whip up some jam to smear on the biscuits right when they come out of the oven.
Five Marys Cheeseburger with Bacon Marmalade
There’s something about the sweet bacon marmalade partnered with a cheeseburger. It was actually Brian’s invention—the saltiness of the bacon and sweetness of the marmalade bring out the beefy flavor of the meat. We like to make a big batch and always have it on hand at home.
Grilled Lamb Lollipops with Salsa Verde
“Lamb Lollipops” are my favorite way to describe lamb rib chops cut from the rack. These tender, mild chops are my girls most-requested dinner, with the exception of pork chops with applesauce.
Flank Steak Tacos with Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
I grow a ridiculous number of chili peppers in my vegetable garden, so I can make gallons of green and red chili hot sauce to last me through the winter. This salsa, which is amazing on just about anything, can be as kicky as you want it to be—the spicier the better is just the way I like it.
Grilled Caprese Toasts
In the summer months, we spend most nights in the open-air kitchen at Camp where we have a long wooden table that seats lots of family or other visitors. When the grill is fired up and everyone is hungry but dinner is still a little ways away, I make these simple-but-hearty toasts.
Jannie’s Toasted Pecan-Apple Crisp
My mom’s recipe for autumn apple crisp is a real treat that we all look forward to when the apples ripen on our trees. And because they all seem to come at once, it’s excellent for making use of those fragrant apples before they go bad.
