    On Sundays we always have a huge cooking

    session.. We would look for a few fun recipes and spend the day cooking and a lovely Sunday evening just relaxing and eating. Last weekend we made French food: we had mussels, cheese, pate, bouillabaisse and lots of wine and French bread. The weekend before we tried Thai: Tom...

    Thought my parents & I would try a place called

    Fatburger for lunch. It was ok. However the burgers were quite salty. I guess we'll stick to our own homemade burgers.

    SCOTCH EGGS Ah, Scotch eggs!

    They bring back memories of a trip to England when I was sixteen, along with other members of the Honors Club. We spent two weeks there—heavily chaperoned, of course. But we behaved fairly well for a bunch of American teenagers. Among my discoveries of another culture was the...

    I love cooking just about everything,

    but I'm learning to hate preparing hummus. I've made it hundreds of times, but I can never get it as good as the stuff in the tub at the supermarket. I've tried different kinds of tahini, different kinds of lemons, canned chickpeas, dried chickpeas, chana dal. I've tried...

    I've been having the taste

    for crab egg rolls for a while. I finally made some. I sauteed green onions, carrots, cabbage, and some other ingredients until wilted. Then, I tossed it with seasoned lump crab meat. Next, I stuffed the egg rolls and fried them. They were so good! Next time I make them, I'll...

    I marinated some shrimp in the fridge

    for about 30 minutes. I used some seasonings similar to jerk marinade like allspice, garlic, salt, crushed red pepper, thyme, brown sugar, olive oil, red wine vinegar and few other things. I ate it with salad, rice, and a crab cake. It was so good!

    Cooking is awesome it relieves my stress.

    Who thinks that men who cook are sexy as hell? I do. If we cooked together I don't think we would end up eating the food. Just each other!

    Cooking relaxes me. I like to be

    as creative as possible and cook with different ingredients and methods. I enjoy cooking vegetarian because it offers infinite vegetables and ingredients. I am off non vegetarian to lose weight. I never was much of a meat eater anyway. Listening to music as I cook or watch a...

    To the person who walked away in

    such a way that you promised you wouldn't, I still make zoodles (Zucchini noodles) !& think about the time I shared my special peeler with you on video. I wish all those good memories could stay good if I could only stop questioning how sincere or real you were with me. Sigh.

    We are getting a Glasgow butcher shop

    where the old butcher shop was. It was called Parkland packers. One brother owned it. His brother owned the slaughter house. The brother that owned the butcher shop passed away in either December or January.

    I just got back from Brazil

    and I have to admit before I went I didn't know anything about Brazilian cuisine but what a find. I fell in love with the blending of so many cultures that are represented in the dishes they cook. Many of the dishes I don’t think would be too difficult to prepare, but the...

    What Did Lincoln Eat?

    In honor of the 150th anniversary of his death, I thought I would examine some of Abraham Lincoln's eating habits. In his case, “Less is More” would have been an appropriate motto.Having been raised on the frontier, Lincoln learned from an early age how to be frugal...

    Got tired of tuna casserole,

    so at 10 I kicked my mom out of the kitchen and taught myself to cook from a cookbook. That's when we started having family pizza night. Bread machine dough and personal pizzas for each person. Leftovers for days!

    Hmmm, a nicely-grilled London Broil

    that is burned on the outside and hot pink on the inside - will have been marinaded or hours. That within a salad and a baked potato. It's all I need to be happy.
