    Prime rib 2-ways

    Prime Rib two ways: oven roasted and smoked. 1st one completed on Christmas, second one completed last night for dinner with friends (FriendsMas?) Whatever itscalled isn't important right now. What is important, at least to me is the "why" and "how." First, the meat. Nothing extravagant, I...

In fact, it actually meets all of my personal culinary needs. Kitchner #12 (reg$150, got on an Amazon flash for $111). So why...

    Shrimp soup

    Was feeling under the weather yesterday as was Mrs. S-met. She threw together a quick soup to get us back on track while I was heading home from the office: Tofu, chicken pot stickers, ginger, lemongrass and garlic in a spicy chicken stock. Top with cilantro, green onions and a squeeze of lime.

    Stuffed bells

    Stuffed bells with fresh bolognese sauce. Meat sauce and bells had the same grind, 50% tri-tip, 30% pork country ribs, 20% sirloin. Sauce made earlier this week for a lasagna, leftover sauce gets better with time anyway. I'll add a bonus shot of the lasagna. Bells cut in half and stuffed with...

    Miso glazed Chinook offal

    Miso glaze pan seared chinook heart, liver and milt served over bamboo steamed sticky rice. Another 1st for me. I like liver and heart, but never had fish liver or heart. First run for milt.
