Kansas City Steak Soup
This delicious soup is quite famous locally. No need for a chilly winter day to enjoy this soup.
Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce
This is a Kansas City-style sauce that I make in my restaurant. It is sweet and smoky with a little bite.
Kansas City Ice Water
A very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful, though - it is easy to have too many of these.
Kansas Tomato Sandwich
The simplest tomato sandwich ever created. You only need bread, a large tomato, cheese, tall glass of Sun Tea, and a nice comfortable chair to relax in. The classic gardener's relaxing meal.
Garlicky Summer Squash and Fresh Corn
A delicious and different way serve two favorite summer vegetables, squash and corn!
Slider-Style Mini Burgers
These remind me of my favorite fast food restaurant's little burgers! Perfect appetizer to bring to a party!
Bologna Salad Sandwich Spread I
A girlfriend's mom made this spread years ago for our Teen Club Luncheon back in Iowa in the 50's. I asked her to tell my Mom how to make it. I made the recipe for my kids while they were growing up & they still love it. Sweet relish and eggs round out the flavor of bologna in this simple but delicious spread. Serve it on cocktail toast, or use it in sandwiches. The amount of egg, creamy salad dressing and relish should be adjusted to taste.
All-American Barbecue Sauce
I'm very excited to show you my take on America's most popular style of barbecue sauce--which of course originated in and around Kansas City. After you make a batch of this and taste just how incredible it is, I don't think you'll ever buy that stuff from the store again. Sauce may be used right away, but for best results, wrap and refrigerate for a day or two before using to allow the flavors to develop.
Dutch stroopwafels (translation: molasseswaffles) Foreign people love them, so I translated this Dutch recipe to English.
Garlic Roasted Summer Squash
The simplest things are often the tastiest. At the height of summer here in Iowa we have a LOT of produce to choose from, and this is a nice and easy way to enjoy summer squashes and zucchini.
My mother-in-law introduced me to this and it kinda stuck. I am from Iowa, now in Kentucky, and the only way I can get this is by making it at home.
