• 30-Minute Mondays-- Onion Bacon Jam Grilled Cheese by Real Food Girl

    30-Minute Mondays–Onion Bacon Jam Grilled Cheese

    Bacon, caramelized onions, Gruy√®re cheese and golden, buttery, toasted bread. Are you hungry yet?  If not, please have someone check you for a pulse.  Maybe even take your temperature.  Go ahead. I’ll wait.   Pulse?  Good.  Hungry now?  Perfect. I knew probably didn’t hear me mention bacon and melted cheese. For the past two weeks I’ve been working hard on updating some old posts with new photos, and even revamping the recipes enough where I felt it was best to just write a new post and link to the old one for a couple of reasons.  One- we all get to see just how far I’ve come since I started blogging, and two- these…

    Real & Simple Homemade Pizza

    Pizza night!  Who doesn’t look forward to homemade pizza night? I know we sure do.  Once I got over my aversion to making my own organic fail-proof pizza dough, I started playing around with sauces and toppings and after years of experimenting, this is our family favorite and I’m excited to share it with you. Shortly after starting my blog I shared my homemade Stromboli recipe. In that post I share my pizza sauce recipe.  I’ve since tweaked it slightly, and will share the ingredients in the recipe card below.   Our favorite toppings are a Calabrase Salame, fresh mozzarella and when we’re feeling particularly fancy, I’ll add some prosciutto.  What are your favorite…

    30-Minute Monday- Skillet Mac-n-Cheese

    I love melted, gooey cheese sauce.  I love melted cheese sauce as much as I love bacon, and because I love both, I am not only going to share a quick and simple truly comforting Macaroni and Cheese recipe, but also my secret mac-n-cheese bacon topping recipe with you.  I’ve thought long and hard and felt the world needed to be privileged with the knowledge of this amazing topping. You’ll never do boring, buttered breadcrumb topping again, nor will you ever make naked mac-n-cheese ever again.  I’m taking Mac-n-Cheese to a WHOLE new level y’all.  This recipe is so good, you’ll name your next child after me as a tribute. I’m somewhat ashamed…

  • Caramelized Onion Burgers by Real Food Girl: Unmodified

    Caramelized Onion Burgers with Gruyere

    It’s been very warm here in MN this summer.  We had a miserably long winter–as in measurable snowstorms in May.  Once summer hit, it’s been hot and humid ever since.  I’m not complaining.  When you have 6 months of winter, you welcome the heat, humidity, and the sun.  But not the mosquitoes. I don’t welcome those at all. I’ve been working for the past 4 days in this 90-degree weather, organizing my garage for the moving sale I’m having later this week.  I spend about 6-10 hours in the garage each day and by the time I’m finished, I’m spent. The last thing I want to do is spend eternity in the kitchen…
