Obsessed is the only word to describe our feelings towards these Buffalo Chicken Cheeseburgers – we are absolutely obsessed with them. Do you ever have a recipe that you make that you are just SO pleased with? That was these burgers for me. I had never made a chicken burger before, so I was kind of nervous. But I had a vision in my head of what these could taste like and I figured I had to give it a shot. And they totally fulfilled my vision! These burgers are like a buffalo chicken sandwich meets a juicy cheeseburger – plus I made them in slider size, which is my favorite way to eat a burger! In fact, as soon as I finish writing this, I’m going out to buy more ground chicken so we can have these for dinner again tomorrow – that’s how much we love them!

Charleston (Husk and Xiao Bao Biscuit) – Friday Dinner Series

Charleston, South Carolina is a charming southern town full of amazing food. Here are two of our favorite meals in Charleston – Husk and Xiao Bao Biscuit.

Friday Dinner Series is back with a look at two of our favorite spots in Charleston, South Carolina. A few weeks back, Cate and I escaped snowy New York City for a weekend trip to one of the South’s culinary hotbeds.

It seems like pretzel buns are everywhere these days, and I love it!  Even Wendy’s has embraced the pretzel bun…not sure that I will be sampling that anytime soon.  But whenever I see a sandwich on pretzel bread at a real restaurant I get really excited.  So I decided that I needed to make some at home!  Great decision.  These pretzel buns were so good!!  Crusty and salty on the outside, chewy and doughy on the inside – a perfect roll for any sandwich, or even to eat plain.  We made jalapeno burgers to put on our pretzel buns.  Burgers and pumpkin beer to watch the first Notre Dame football game of the season – perfection!  …
