Grill envy.

What I would like try someday is the open fire, with the fish / fowl attached to a stick with the bottom tip stuck in the dirt and the top leaning toward the fire.

Rustic.

Got some double thick center cut pork chops with nice fatty edges on them. Family is pretty traditional (grilled or pan "fried") but I butterflied one and stuffed it with some shredded mozzarella and some bacon left over from breakfast and sprinkled it with some homemade rub. Cooked it it in the cast iron skillet for about 15 minutes or so. It was wayyy better than expected. Can't wait to try again.

No fancy cooking but something different and it worked out well.

The day Mrs Tif and and I departed for our honeymoon, I dropped off a vat of my chili for a workplace cookoff. I came home to leqrn I finished second to a guy who dumped a jar of Pace picante sauce into his stew (it had beans, so it was stew). Three years and another company later, my Shepherds Pie lost a company St Patty‘s Day cookoff to someone who made Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes... by 3 votes, out of 120 cast.

I'm not bitter, or anything..... just sayin'.............

Made my first attempt at my uncle's bbq sauce recipe today. Turned out decent, but not quite right. Think I need to adjust some of the amounts.

When mashing potatoes...
Hand mash?
Mixer?
Ricer?

I'm old school hand mash with butter, salt, pepper and a little bit of milk. Sometimes some minced garlic.

Add some ev olive oil and that's what I do

Wait...I don't use butter either (hence the olive oil).

I don't know how I ever lived without a crock pot. It has to have the best delicious food to actual effort ratio of any type of cooking.

I made a nice honey lemon chicken, and it's easily the best thing I have ever made. That's not saying a whole lot, since I'm pretty much a turd in the kitchen

Red skin potatoes with the skins still on... Butter, salt, pepper, tiniest little bit of milk. then some optional things: cheese, garlic or horseradish (not all of them, just depending on what I'm eating them with I usually pick one)

as far as mashing, I use hand mash and keep 'em lumpy. I find very few things less texturally appealing than whipped potatoes.

Then there's the richness axis: I use canned milk and definitely butter.

The Most (and Least) Fake Extra Virgin Olive Oil Brands
http://lifehacker.com/the-most-and-leas ... 894373/all

I finally picked up a bottle of California Olive Ranch and I can definitely say that it's better than any of the others (that I've tried) in the $8 range.

I do most of the cooking at home so Im surprised I dont post in here that much. I get home at 5:30-6:00 everyday and still manage to get a well prepared and mostly healthy meal on the table in an hour.

Last night was baked salmon seasoned with salt, pepper, fresh squeezed lemon juice, lemon zest, and dill, steamed shrimp, roasted asparagus, and a creamy dill sauce.

Tonight it's steaks marinaded in my own basting oil (organic olive oil, fresh rosemary, fresh thyme, garlic), Korean style teriyaki, sriracha, a tiny bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice, salt, and pepper, baked sweet potatoes, and sauteed zuchini and mushrooms.

Saturday is take out night...
