Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

I’m not going to jump into the fray of what makes a perfect cheeseburger, but what I will say is, don’t overlook the opportunity to jazz up your ketchup.  Last night I topped our open faced caramelized onion bacon cheeseburgers with a dollop of curry ketchup and it made it a whole lot more special without much effort.  I simply stirred in a quarter teaspoon of curry paste into a small bowl of ketchup right out of the bottle.  Think about a squeeze of Sriracha, a spoonful of your favorite barbeque sauce, or a little mayonnaise and relish for a Thousand Island burger.  Then there’s chili and cumin powder for a Mexican twist, or a bit of hoisin and soy sauce if you’re feeling Asian.  And for you purists who aren’t going to mess with it, check out Simply Heinz, it’s the classic recipe minus the high fructose corn syrup.  Happy 4th!
