BBQ Contest Winner

I was honored to have my Chorizo Bacon Cheddarburger selected as one of the winning dishes in this year's Santa Barbara Independent's BBQ Contest. The burger and my Grilled Watermelon Gazpacho were a big hit. Here's the link.

Give them a pinch and a try.

Breakfast

Does anyone have any ideas for a breakfast food that is portable and can either be popped in the oven that morning or ready to go the night before? I have a retirement breakfast next week. I am so tired of bringing Videlia Onion Pie or Flexible Breakfast Casserole. Any ideas?

Using Extracts and food coloring

Does anyone have a guide to using extracts ( how much to use). I am looking for help I want to try and replicate Pillsbury (seasonal ) limited time only Blue raspberry cookies they were available last spring. My three year old granddaughter has asked me to please make them for her for thanksgiving. I have done one trial run with Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix. 17 ounce size. I added two teaspoons of raspberry extract. I purchased neon colors food coloring to try and match the blue cookie color of the Pillsbury mix. I added four drop they look to green and don't have quite enough raspberry flavor. Does anyone have any suggestions I am running out of time.

Need Help

I need lunch box suggestions for my great nephew, David. He has a new classmate that has severe peanut allergies. My niece is going to find out if that includes other nuts or just peanuts. What are some nutritious lunch box suggestions that don’t include process food (deli lunch meats) or nuts? David is in 1st grade.
