Barbecued cheese

Last night's barbeque was a success. We seem to be getting better with timing of things like preparatory thawing and marinades. I thawed a half dozen of the heirloom chicken thighs. and set three in a bath of lemon, honey, garlic, and tarragon. The other, in lime, maple syrup, salt and garlic. My...

To Freeze or Not to Freeze

A second order of the Very Good Chicken arrived in three big boxes today. Sent frozen with freezer packs and dry ice, everything was nonetheless completely thawed. They were still cold, and I am not worried about them, most just went straight into the freezer. I will cook a tandoori-spiced... Sign in to see full entry.

Air fryers, anyone?

I am thinking of giving Charlie one for his birthday, and have looked at various options. Now I'm here to ask you: Do you have any experience with these devices? Do you have any recommendations, or warnings over particular brands? Are there other kitchen devices you use and have found very handy? He... Sign in to see full entry.

Ordering in to save money

Last night we ordered in Chinese dinner: lemon chicken, bbq pork and vegetables, and two large hot'n'sour soups. The two dishes were quite enough, even without eating the rice--sent that home with Charlie! But I always get the extra soup. This morning I had some of that soup with some of the...

I've always really liked the /salt/sour/sweetof teriyaki, and today I have some prawns marinating in one bowl, and some beef strips in another. The first has Yoshida sauce, some rice vinegar flavored with a hint of toasted sesame, and powdered ginger. The beef is in Yoshida with garlic powder and... Sign in to see full entry.

Finding a better chicken

Yesterday was BBQ Thursday, a regular thing this summer, weather permitting, that Charlie has been doing with friends who game with him, and/or work-out. And me, too. We all bring what we want to eat, often in shareable amounts. Yesterday I contributed some chicken. Not your every day stuff, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Not my kitchen!

I am watching more of that Australian cooking show, My Kitchen Rules. It's a home-cooking competition that starts with each of the teams of two cooks hosting a dinner in their home--an 'instant restaurant.' The diners are all the other contestants who will vote on the quality of the meal. Some are... Sign in to see full entry.

If you haven't seen it around, it's a big fish... well, compared to tilapia. I get frozen fillets and today I thawed a couple and baked them with a bit of teriyaki and garlic, and slices of onion on top. They went in for 30 minutes at 375 F and came out very tasty! It's a fairly mild white fish,... Sign in to see full entry.

I love a good hot'n'sour soup: I will try it every time I am in a new-to-me Asian restaurant. But there are different styles from different countries. Chinese is pretty basic, often just highly-peppered with a bit of tofu in a chicken broth base, a little thickened. Thai, on the other hand, is rich... Sign in to see full entry.

BLTT w/ avocado

Bacon Lettuce Tomato Taco! Not doing sliced bread these days, but I did have a couple of ~8 inch diameter whole-grain tortillas on hand, and three chubby pieces of bacon. No flat lettuce, but a bag of chopped salad. So while the bacon fried (slowly on medium heat), I mixed the chopped salad--cabbage... Sign in to see full entry.
