The Juicy Lucy – the Ultimate Cheese Stuffed Burger

The Juicy Lucy (or Jucy Lucy), the iconic cheese stuffed burger, is a Minnesota thing, you betcha! Two rival Minnesota bars, Matt’s and the 5-8 Tavern have been making these for decades, but recently the cheese stuffed burger has gone all gourmet and with good reason. There’s something about a great crusty burger with an ooey, gooey, cheesy filling that just puts all other cheeseburgers to shame.

Asian Inspired Individual Meatloaves

An old family favorite, long-buried away in my box, a great price on ground beef inspired me to pull out this recipe for individual meatloaves with a little Asian flair. It is a crazy cultural mix up but the results are outstanding! A gorgeous, crusty exterior hides away the moist interior and the little gingery/soy kick lends a subtle teriyaki flavor – not a sweet teriyaki, but something more reminiscent of a Japanese teriyaki.

Black Bottom Cupcakes

I thought these homely but absolutely delicious cupcakes had fallen out of fashion – until I googled them! Still, I think they deserve a place on my blog – absolutely moist, delicious and chocolaty, the cream cheese layer sets them off beautifully. One of my favorite cupcakes, I’ll always pick these if I see them at a picnic or a potluck, even over any beautiful, fancy cupcake. They’re heavy in the hand and bursting with flavor!

Classic Coffee Cake with Crumb Topping

Years ago on a visit to New York I was passed the best coffee cake recipe. An elderly neighbor had brought some to the home of my daughter’s Aunt and it was amazing! We had a little chat about it, then before I left, she stopped by with the recipe. I was so appreciative; this must have been a great effort for her and was so thoughtful.
