Snow in the South? Aww, hell; white chili, then!

So my two hounds, the wonder corgis, can't figure out this snow thing, but they like the fact that Dad is in here cutting up chicken, stir frying it in sesame oil and Greek sesonings, and adding it to a big pot of yummy things. They know good things hit the floor from above and I can hardly reach... Sign in to see full entry.

And yet another grand experiment...

So my beloved and I love our local farmers market. When I can buy locally grown fresh red bell peppers for a buck a piece, instead of the 3.99 the store charges, and they taste like I just yanked em out the back yard, well, that's what we call putting your state on your plate. Corny, but on the... Sign in to see full entry.

Okay, so here it is...pecan encrusted fried chicken...

Man alive, but this one turned out great! Seems it's fairly easy, too. All you have to do is make an egg white and corn starch dipping mixture in one shallow bowl and take your crushed pecans, about a cup of them, mixed with a little brown sugar, sage, Italian spices, about a half cup of bread...

Getting ready to do something truly toothsome!

I'll soon be reporting on this experiment -- pecan encrusted pan fried chicken and flash fried greens. I think it's going to be a home run. Sign in to see full entry.

Another Successful Experiment!

I don't know what to call this - it's too thick for soup and prbably even for traditional stew, but it turned out to really rock. Another triumph of the By God school of cooking -- "Everything but the kitchen sink goes in that, By God..." Anyway, what I had was some ground turkey, a can of tomato... Sign in to see full entry.

Another successful experiment

So my beoved and I were too lazy to go back out into the cold and drive half a mile to the grocery store -- a couple of glasses of Merlot sealed that deal as well. Stlll, one can cme up with a variety of interesting things from odds and ends in the fridge and the pantry. With a small portion of... Sign in to see full entry.

Not for the faint of heart

This is an old recipe that is only used in dire emergencies, such as the day before payday or in the event of an atomic holocaust: Oscar Meyer Soup: Take a pot of water and two hot dogs. Boil for fifteen minutes. Remove the hotdogs pour the water in soup bowls and serve with whatever carbohydrates... Sign in to see full entry.

A successful experiment from bachelorhood...

Here’s one of those weird experiments that came about through sheer desperation one evening about 15 years ago. I still don't know what to call it, but it's great! What happened was, I had about five bucks in change to my name, and a few of the ingredients lying around. And voila! It turned out to... Sign in to see full entry.

Vegetable Soup: Not Just For Breakfast Anymore...

One of the things I love about making soup is how one minor adjustment can totally change the character of what you’re doing. My grandmother, for example, was a big fan of ham and cabbage as a base for vegetable soup, which makes a fantastic alternative to vegetable beef type soups. Using different...

Kids! Try Strat's Famous Black Bean Salsa!

This salsa is an old party favorite -- just took about a half gallon to the Carolina Cup Steeplechase this past weekend, and nearly all of it was gone by the third race. It's very versatile, and it's so damn good, it’s worth having around anytime. I like using it as a garnish for grilled tuna steak... Sign in to see full entry.
