Are Pizzas The Future Food?

Are Pizzas The Future Food?

So, this is wierd. Futurists often try to predict Convergence: BIOLOGY “The tendency of unrelated animals and plants to evolve superficially similar characteristics under similar environmental conditions.” It also applies to the spontaneous generation of self-aware Artificial Intelligence and subsequent generations – but in Food News, it seems environmental...

Gift giving rags less thumbed

Gift giving rags less thumbed

Durability, tradition, and quality should be at the front of every American’s mind all year around. But with gift-giving what it is and random acts of kindness designated to only winter holidays and birthdays, we may have to take inspiration from the less common catalogs that arrive en masse during...

Roast vegetables with lamb roast

Roast vegetables with lamb roast

Here’s a picture of that lamb roast we keep writing about. When the roast became parts of a Cottage Pie, these vegetables joined it. Quartered lengthwise, these three veggies came out tasting their best and made an incredible presentation and impression. Parsnips came in a bag by the pound and...

Cheese on the Lamb, out like a champ

Cheese on the Lamb, out like a champ

This is the lamb from a couple days ago that didn’t go into the Cottage Pie but still had to get out of the way for the next recipe. It was seasoned and rolled up and roasted with vegetables that are long gone but of what remained, cutting it...

Leftover roasts to Cottage Pies

Leftover roasts to Cottage Pies

Cottage Pie is synonymous with Shepard’s Pie in that it’s a meat pie, of Beef or Lamb, with a crust of mashed potatoes. These Cottage Pies came from a night of roast Lamb and vegetables and I’ve got two things to discuss with you: Flavor pairings for Lamb that are...

Cheese - Gussy up a biscuit!

Cheese - Gussy up a biscuit!

Remember what life was like before bacon? It was all about CHEESE, man! Adding cheese to everything was pretty much the sure-fired path to decadence. And now? Now cheese has slipped underground reserved, as it were, for artisans and grocery shelf blends that will hopefully one day provide some...

210 Holiday Cookies, 3 Recipes - The Approach

210 Holiday Cookies, 3 Recipes - The Approach

This author has a distaste for surprises. There’s no skydiving on the bucket list, bungee jumping, long walks down dark alleys in foreign countries and, along similar lines, submitting for dessert, an untested cookie recipe could happen in something like a hostage situation where duress came in to play, but...

Add a little edge...

Add a little edge...

So we were struck the other day by this heavy tin from Bakalicious that has 12 brownie chambers promising that each will have that which brownie slayers eveywhere crave. Edges. We all know the edges are the best. They counter hot chocolate softness with a cracker-like crunch that’s crisply baked...

Shrug off lamb shoulders

Shrug off lamb shoulders

When searching for a recipe that would pair well with a gifted wine, an initial recommendation came to try roasted lamb. The deep, smoky notes of the thick, red wine would blast in and wash the mouth with components and depth that the lamb alone couldn’t provide. But lamb? Isn’t...

Strawberry shortcake on Baking Soda biscuits

Strawberry shortcake on Baking Soda biscuits

Ed. Re-posted fresh after a telling test. The pick-your-own season for strawberries may have come mostly to a close, but before it did, Bob took great advantage and handed out deconstructed shortcake desserts to friends. The homemade Baking Soda biscuit and whipped cream remind the eater what a throwback this...

Indispensable bread books

Indispensable bread books

The decision to make bread is an exciting prospect for friends and family but there’s a mine field of resources that pack the field of study tightly with books designed not to teach as much as they are just designed to sell. A few gems are buried in that field...

Real Mashed Potatoes in a hurry

Real Mashed Potatoes in a hurry

The presence of a “Instant” Mashed Potatoes might well fool a man into thinking that the dish requires some extraordinary amount of time. Isn’t ten minutes with powders and milk and heat and whipping the same as ten minutes with potatoes and heat and flavor? A nice, reasonably intelligent and...

Sausage and Spinach quick Calzones

Sausage and Spinach quick Calzones

Calzones are great and greater still when they take just minutes to put together. This recipe review suggests alterations you could consider making to Taste of Home’s Five Ingredient recipe which was our base. We picked Hot Italian Sausage links and removed the case to heat up the meat loose....

Prep a Windfall of Loin Ribs

Prep a Windfall of Loin Ribs

Some sales are too good to pass and pork loin ribs for less than $3 bucks a pound is such a sale. Grace your diet by preparing ribs for a later, spontaneous consumption off the grill. The hot, new trend once the FDA allowed it years ago was for...

Baking Cakes - Metal vs Glass

Baking Cakes - Metal vs Glass

Recreated here, a first, mostly harmless mistake from the kitchen: Two very different cake pans to cook a single Banana Cake yield to illustrate what differences exist in baking tools. We’re taking a pretty good look at two readily available tools – cake pans by Pyrex and Smart Living. Both...

Pannu Kakku, the Finnish Oven Pancake

Pannu Kakku, the Finnish Oven Pancake

On the way to planning for a friend’s third annual birthday dinner, an idea came to create dishes based on breakfast. That idea was abandoned shortly thereafter and it’s a good thing. What ended up appearing at the dinner party was perfect and, while considering desserts, the birthday girl forwarded...

Pie Crust Variations and Hand Pie Fillings

Pie Crust Variations and Hand Pie Fillings

A balanced pie crust recipe is supposed to result in a light, golden, flavor-neutral crust that’s flaky, sometimes buttery and all the time supposed to hold things together. This author delivered a disaster for Christmas Eve’s Dessert, Apple Pie with Crumble Top. The crust was great, but the filling had...

Age Defying Vanilla Extract

Age Defying Vanilla Extract

No need to worry about that Vanilla Extract going bad. Unlike the dry spices in the spice rack or cabinet (smartly shielded from view of the Sun), the alcohol lends a bit of immortality to real Vanilla Extract. Looking to save money? Saving money by buying imitation vanilla is a...

Cheers to Jay for the entertaining report about iTouches at a local restaurant used by waitstaff that confuse the patrons into making managerial complaints about their waitron units text messaging while orders are placed – Jeers to AOL-owned SlashFood for reporting that the Tropical Race Four virus...

Three Peanut Butter Cookie Recipes

Three Peanut Butter Cookie Recipes

How about a bevy of choices to match a situation you may encounter since no one recipe can be called “the best?” Having craved peanut butter cookie recipes for no reason other than to stuff my fat face, I’ve found vastly different “best” recipes with some definite losers. ...
