Jack Daniel's Blackberry Steak Tips

We've got a diner in town that serves Jack Daniel's Blackberry Steak tips that Tim absolutely loves.    They are only open limited hours and it's always a long wait, which can be difficult with Jake.  I ran across this recipe earlier this year and squirreled it away until we could get some blackberries at a reasonable price.  

I made up a half batch of the sauce and stuck it in the freezer.  I defrosted it on Thursday, bought the sirloin tips yesterday and marinated them overnight in it.  I reserved half for basting, but it turns out it didn't need it.

We preheated the grill to high on all 3 burners, then brushed the grates with oil and turned off the middle burner.  Cooked them over that indirect heat to our desired doneness   I'd have preferred them with a little bit of a crispier exterior, but that's easily fixable next time.  Not the most photogenic dish and I was hungry and in no mood to play with it   :)

Jack Daniels Blackberry BBQ Sauce

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook on low heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
