News: Tarragon Aoli

Aoli is a term for a flavored mayonnaise. Typically all Aolis will start with garlic and lemon and your imagination is the limit for the flavoring from there. Making an Aoli is a simple and tasty way to spruce up a sandwich or canapés. I have also used a spicy Aoli with Quesadillas that was great. I like a flavor herbaceous flavor for sandwiches so here is my recipe for Tarragon Aoli:

We were invited to my Wife's Cousins house for Thanksgiving Dinner and I wanted a unique but fabulous dessert. I had Doug find us a recipe and this is what he came up with.

This required that we find a good recipe for Pumpkin Bread. I also put Doug on this bit of research and he came up with a whopper of a recipe. ...

News: Breakfast Burritos

I had three of the kids, one with her spouse, here and needed a Saturday Morning Breakfast. I got Doug to help me and we started by browning some sausage. Once that was done, we took the meat out of the pan and left the grease. The sausage was pretty lean and didn't render as much as I wanted to so I added some olive oil and we used that to fry some hash browns. I just seasoned the potatoes with salt and pepper. To the hash browns, we added Onion, Garlic and Green Chilis. Once the potatoes we...

News: Jaccard Tenderizer - A Must Have Tool

This is a tool I wouldn't want to do without in my kitchen.

News: The Workings of The Tongue

I have looked into this several times because I find it interesting to think about how the tongue works when making a recipe. I say "looked into" it because I wouldn't really describe it as research. How the flavors are going to be perceived can affect how you might want to layer the flavors in your dish. This information mostly comes from an artical in How Stuff Works website. There are several parts of the tongue that you need tobe familiar with when you study it.

I saw this on the Food Network and tried it out. We loved it. It is a great way to use leftovers and with Thanksgiving coming up, I know you'll want to try it on Thanksgiving evening while watching football.

It is great with leftover turkey, dressing, and potatoes and gravy. MethodTake the left over turkey and brea...

News: A Simple Semi-homemade Trick for Dressing

Here's something that I use to boost the stove top type stuffing mix. With Thanksgiving approaching, I thought I'd share it. The mix is often as cheap as the croutons for stuffing and it already has pretty good seasoning so I don't mind using it. However, what it lacks is the vegetable content that good stuffing should have. What I do is add the classic veggies to hop up the mix.
