Guess #whatsfordinner tonight 7/12/2016 #food


After yesterday evening’s carnivore fest it was time for something lighter.

In fact, tonight we went vegetarian… no meat at all, and only a little cooking. Just a little blanching of some Sugar Snap Peas

Guess #whatsfordinner tonight 7/11/2016 #food


This week we are starting with another large cut of meat. HAM!!

It’s going to be hard to make it last. . . . . We love it so much.

Rubbing it in – Grilling Tips #barbecue

I don’t get it. I love grilling and I love sharing. Really what does it matter if someone copies a recipe. If you believe Charles Caleb Colton then you believe that “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

I’m still working on coming up with a “signature rub” of my own. In the mean time, I found this guide that provides a great starting place for developing your own. What follows is the gist of the article along with other information I found: Continue reading “Rubbing it in – Grilling Tips #barbecue”

Bring on the Flavor – Grilling Tips #barbecue


For those of us who enjoy grilling one of the primary reasons we like it is the wonderfully complex flavors that can only be achieved via this method of cooking. Who doesn’t love that unique combination of sweet, smoky, and spicy that can only come from the perfect grilling session.

 

However, more is needed than simply dropping a piece of meat on the grill and slathering it with a little sauce. Sure you can get an acceptable burger that way but for a really great experience a little more technique is needed using marinades, rubs, and a good sauce.
