Buffalo Burger Pattie Melt w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

My Meals are on Wheels

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Burger Pattie Melt w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also fried a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 34 degrees this morning with a high of 38 degrees and rain coming in later in the afternoon. I think our Warm Winter Days are gone! Had to deal with these Phantom Pains for the 2nd day in a row! Hate dealing with these but not a lot I can do. For Dinner tonight I had a Buffalo Burger Pattie Melt w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

As always I’m using the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Burgers. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking…

Thai Sweet Chili Sauce Chicken Wings

Season Generously

For the Super Bowl last night, Trevor was begging me to make sweet chili sauce chicken wings. While I love my beloved Franks Red Hot Sauce wings (cook the same way as below, but toss in Franks!), I decided to make both and surprise him.

Now, I went to college in Buffalo, NY where wings were created. I’ll never be able to replicate those wings from Duff’s or Anchor Bar (mostly because I refuse to fry them), but I sure can make a mean chicken wing none-the-less.

So, here’s how I make my sweet and spicy version, but in a slightly healthier way. Don’t forget the carrots and celery! You can leave out the blue cheese – I’ve never been a fan of that (but sshhhhh, don’t tell anyone from Buffalo that!)! 🙂

What’s your favorite way to eat wings? Let me know in the comments below!

Cajun Salmon Sheet Pan


This is such an easy to prepare and tasty dish. The salmon is extra delicious served on simple rice or swap out the cauliflower for potatoes
This is such an easy to prepare and tasty dish. The salmon is extra delicious served on simple rice or swap out the cauliflower for potatoes

Cajun Salmon is a spiced dish that will appeal to anyone who likes Tex Mex, Mexican or Southwestern flavours. The fact that this recipe is a sheet pan dish is an added bonus making it very quick and easy to prepare. As with all sheet pan meals, the protein is already matched with complimentary vegetable sides. If you wish, you can add a salad to really round things out.

In this particular iteration inspired by a recipe on Wellness.com, I chose to pair green beans with cauliflower for a lower carb option. It would be just as easy to pair the beans with new potatoes sliced in half or even red or yellow potatoes quartered to make sure they cook at the same rate…

Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large pan over medium heat, cook the Goetta until browned. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Cannelloni Salsiccia « heat’n’eat

Heute war einer der seltenen Tage, an der meine Kochidee ganz spontan zu mir kam. Warum, weiß ich nicht, aber schon, daß ich bisher keine Cannelloni gefüllt habe. Also ist das rundum eine gute Sache – ein neuer Post, eine neue Kategorie und ein (hoffentlich) neuer Geschmack. Die Cannelloni hab ich gekauft, obwohl ich nach…

Supper Tonight, Our Old Friend, Pork Steak In Mushroom Gravy

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

0EBCC462-1D4B-46CE-A302-798A402F5674We’re both feeling a lot better today, so time to make something we both enjoy. Pork steak in mushroom gravy is a meal that just makes me feel good. The pork has lots of flavor and the gravy gets alot of flavor from the pork. Pork steak can turn out a little chewy, but done this way it’s soft and fork tender. It’s not very often that I use premade products but a can of mushroom soup does work best for this. I have tried making it totally from scratch but couldn’t match the texture and flavor you get with the can of mushroom soup. Something’s just work and you can’t duplicate them with other things. The other nice thing about this is once it hits the oven the work is done. Jets game started at 1 this afternoon so got the steaks browned between the second and third periods…

Sweet and Spicy Honey Chicken

Mostly Masala

There’s something about sweet and spicy that just works, especially when it’s on some fried chicken. So, today I want to share with you one of the first fried chicken recipes I learned. I remember making this as a little youngin… maybe I was 10 or maybe I was 13, honestly don’t remember, though I’m not sure how I got away with frying chicken at such a young age, hahaha. Then again, I’m grateful I had the opportunity to experiment with foods when I was so young, it definitely helped expand my palette and fueled my passion for cooking. So thank you to my mom for not kicking me out of the kitchen 😅😂 Nevertheless, let’s get started with today’s recipe, shall we?


  • 2 pounds cubed chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 egg

Red Beans & Rice – Friendly Nutrition

New Orleans is one of my all-time favorite places. On a recent trip, I picked up some red beans and rice from The Gumbo Shop and some beignets from Cafe du Monde and then went and had a lovely little picnic by the river. It was amazing! So naturally, when I got home, I needed…
