Okay. To me, it’s kinda like a crustless quiche and yes, real men do make quiche…and frittatas. This one I made with chorizo, spinach, green peppers, and fingerling potatoes topped with goat cheese and scallions. 6 eggs 1 tbsp minced garlic 3 slices American cheese 1 link chorizo sausage 1 handfull (maybe a cup) baby spinach 1 […]

There they were. Right there on the front cover of Bon Appetit. Whole grain pancakes with wild blueberry syrup. Becky and I always make it a team effort when it comes to making pancakes on weekend mornings. I have always, well for as long as she has known me, had a real passion for cooking and eating […]

Baked eggs with polenta, cheese, and bacon! Yes! First, let me thank Robin at Caviar and Codfish, formerly known as Clumsy Cook who grew as a cook into a great cook, IMHO. She made this dish in her $10 or $12 dollar cast iron ramekins from Wal-Mart. I saw them on her blog and as I can […]

Well…now that I am literally back on my feet, Beck and I are about to make the obligatory journey to Philadelphia. We usually travel there at least twice a year. It is my home town, whereas Beck is originally from Knoxville Tennessee, having spent most of her formative years right here in Roswell, Georgia. I love going […]

What you see there is the absolute best steak I have ever eaten in my life. Believe me when I tell you that I am not exaggerating. I have eaten a lot of steak in my like; from shoe leather, well-done crispy critters, to a succulent, melt in your mouth Kobe strip. But this Akaushi steak has […]

With them popping up on more and more fine dining menus and all over the blogosphere, short ribs are becoming more and more fashionable. I have used short ribs for years in stews, but I have to say that wine braised is my favorite method for this relatively inexpensive beefy cut. The first time I had short […]

What a luxury in depressing times, huh? Well when one thinks about it, it is much cheaper to stay at home and prepare a luxurious meal, provided one has the skills, than it is to roll out to the steakhouse and order a la carte. This was the Valentine’s day meal I prepared for Beck and myself. […]

So I’m browsing my links and I come across Robin’s cowboy steak post and I think to myself, hmmmm, I have to have that NOW. So let it be written, so let it be done. And it was done, medium rare. I started with a grass fed, well marbled, bone-in ribeye. Ain’t she perty? That’s 41 ounces […]

Honestly, I had never heard of this dish until I saw it on Alton Brown’s show Good Eats. I imagine had I frequented French restaurants I would have seen it on menus. From what I gather, it is a popular French dish. But I got turned off to French restaurants when I was in my twenties because […]
