I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Italian Burgers

The red wine and sundried tomatoes in this recipe give your old burger some oomph !

1  1/4 lbs ground beef
3 oz (1 cup) shredded old cheddar cheese
2 tbsps italian bread crumbs
2 tbsps dried basil
1 tbsps dried oregano
2 tbsps red wine
2 tbsps chopped sundried tomatoes
3-4 minced garlic cloves
2 tbsps of your favourite tomato sauce

Mix everything together and form into patties.  Refrigerate until ready to use.  Most beef recipes tell you to bring the meat to room temperature before cooking, but with ground beef you want to take it from the fridge right to the BBQ.

Turn up the BBQ to high.  You want to cook your burgers on direct heat.  Cook 5-6 minutes until you see juices starting to come out the top.  Resist the urge to squish 'em!
Flip them over and cook for another 3-4 minutes.  Take them off the heat and rest 5 minutes.
