DIY SlidersSince everyone is jazzed up about LOGAN we're making Wolverine favorite a--"Burger with the works: onions, jalepeno peppers, chili sauce, pickles, and cheese."
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp worcheshire sauce
1/4 large red onion, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
salt to taste
pepper to taste
Sweet Hawaiian Roles
Preheat your grill to medium. Mix all ingredients but beef together. Finally crumble the beef and gently mix. Avoid overworking the meat. For sliders form small patties about 3 inches across and put a small indentation in the middle of the patty to counter the patty from puffing up. Place the sliders on the grill and cook about 4 min each side or cooked through to your liking. Serve atop sweet hawaiian rolls and all your favorite fixings!

Momma Eubank's Sugar CookiesIn honor of Momma Eubank and her sugar and snickerdoodle cookies 😀
3 3/4 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 c butter
2 c sugar
1/4 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp sugar
(For Zac's vegan version, I just substitute Earth Balance for the butter and almond milk for the milk.) Grease a cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 375. Stir together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat butter for 30 seconds, add the 2 cups sugar and beat till fluffy. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla; beat well. Add dry ingredients to beaten mixture, beating till well blended. Form dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place balls 2" apart on cookie sheet; flatten slightly. Bake for about 8 minutes or until light golden. Makes 4-5 dozen. (I use the same recipe for snickerdoodles, just rolling in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.) Enjoy!
