Some-What Homemade with the Walnofer's. #1

sI have decided to start a new series on the blog site entitled, "Some-What Homemade with the Walnofer's." This is my spin on the "Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee" series from the Food Network. Not only will this new series document my progression through culinary school, but it will also provide cooking ideas for all my readers who don't have time to make all their meals from scratch.

Lean ground beef with Walnofer Burger Sauce and melted double-cream Gouda cheese. Baked batonnet-size assortment of sweet potato and regular potato fries with above burger sauce with an addition of pancake syrup.
For Burger Sauce: 2 Tbl of Trader Joe's Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce
1 Tbl of Honey Mustard
2 Tbl of Ketchup
1 tsp of Garlic Salt and Onion Powder each.
For Fry Condiment:
Add 1/4 cup of pancake syrup to the left over burger sauce.

Trust me, flavor dynamics is a powerful thing and it tastes better than it sounds.

What goes well with Spicy meats and wild sauces............Syrah! Try this spicy little lady from Cuvaison Winery off of Silverado Trail near Calistoga. With rich notes of boysenberry, cassis, spice, and white pepper, this wine paired nicely with the entree above.

I am not a pastry chef, or a baker, but until I take some photography classes, you are just going to have to trust me on the flavor once again. Homemade Pumpkin bread muffin, split in half, and a scoop of Trader Joe's French Vanilla Ice cream topped with honey-nut granola and a dash of cinnamon sugar. Decaf Snickerdoodle Latte to capture the cinnamon, nutmeg notes from the dessert.

Also, it is crazy that Eric is out in Cali now.

It is pretty good that us Arkansas boys are growing up to be a Chef,
a Doctor, and a Scientist!
