food: it smells as good as it looks!

Ever since I saw Ina make Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic on Barefoot Contessa, I knew it was a dish for me. In fact her show, over time, wore down my resistance to only cooking chicken in one way–baking...

food: What a crock!

I’m not sure I’ll ever forgive Norman for sending me one of his cast-offs, a 2-quart crock pot, or as the more refined say, slow cooker. Yes, I know it says Crock Pot on the damn thing, but I’m trying...

Mmm, single-serving whole birds…

There really is nothing quite like roasting birds in the house with plenty of garlic (and thyme or rosemary too). Even if I completely screwed up the hens, the smell in my apartment would have been good enough that resorting...

gadgets: Meat packing made easy!

Have I mentioned how much I love my Reynolds Handi-Vac yet? $10 at Target plus average cost for quart and gallon bags and I haven’t had bulk meat or produce go bad on me in months. Recent efforts are vastly...
