I've decided to try to make spring come in my own way. On of my favorite things about nice weather is cooking out on the grill.

...and by cooking out on the grill I mean, prepping some food for the mister to grill for me. One of our family favorites is my secret burger recipe.

Freakishly Good Burgers
1 lb. hamburger (the good stuff)
1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
½ tsp. seasoning salt
3 T. Worcestershire sauce
¼ C. real bacon bits

Mix the above ingredients and let sit over night. (If you get antsy, you can cook them right away.)Then form patties and grill to perfection.

I suggest serving them with toasted buns, lettuce, tomatoes and a zippy sauce. Try mayo and BBQ mixed together in equal portions. It’ll be a crowd pleaser.

If you want an easy side, here is my version of a classic.

Pasta Salad
1 box of twirly colored noodles. Boil and cool.
1/2 lb. cubed cheddar cheese
1/2 C. cubed summer sausage (peperoni also work)
1/2 C. diced cucumbers
1/2 C. diced red peppers
1/2 bottle of Kraft zesty Italian dressing
mix and serve
(This recipe is easy to tweak and make your own. Just put in your veggie, cheese and meat choice and you've got it the way you like it.)
I love a good cook out.

Do you think if we all grilled out at the same time and generated enough heat, the snow would melt? ...a girl can dream, can't she?

I am not sure how I can help, but I will do what you need me to do. I am not a fan of facebook or twitter, what ever that is.!
Your hamburger look and sound great. It fun to make burger and stuff cheese slices in between the meat and BBQ. I love your thoughts on life.

I LOVE YOUR RECCIPES! I havn't tried these ones yet but they sure look good! You know what else is good? Your carrot cake recipe. I guess you could say FOOD makes me happy.

I sure miss your cooking! And if you add the words Freakishly Good to the title of just about anything it gets my interest! Can't wait to dust off the grill and try them!

And if you add mayo to the dressing, voila! Creamy Italian! Ooh and spinkling of salad supreme seasoning!
