My wife loves corned beef. Me? Not so much. So it should not surprise you every St. Patricks Day we have corned beef. She also likes pastrami and I do enjoy this deli style meat. This past week I spied in the freezer one of the several extra packages of corned beef purchased in March so we have, in her

It also happens to saturate the skin with water. When you buy a whole or chicken parts at the grocery store you’ll note that

Butternut Squash is not a sexy dish to talk about. Oh it’s delicious and easy-to-make, for sure, but sexy like say lobster or grilled steak… nope. It is something you can do quickly and replace the ordinary baked potato every once in a while. You’ll quickly master roasting squash to find it’s a versatile and very tasty

If you are fortunate and travel the country you’ll discover regional cooking that both surprises and delights the taste buds.

Sourcing food from as close to home as possible is a practice I endeavor to keep. Supporting local agriculture is healthy for me (less travel time equals fresher produce and reduced loss of nutrients) and healthy for my local economy too. BUT when an ingredient isn’t available locally – BTW I define “local” as from within a

If you hang around outdoor cooking circles long enough you’ll begin to pick up on commonly used jargon. For example a “cooker” is a grill, smoker, or what-have you that folks use outdoors. You understand the reference in context of the conversation. Food that’s routinely prepared outdoors also has common names. For example a bacon-wrapped meatloaf stuffed

The Ham, Cheese, Mushroom and Spinach Egg Pie is a popular weekend breakfast dish that will please a hungry man. Just be sure to call it “Egg Pie” and not quiche. I love bacon and eggs.
