    Pea Meal Bacon

    Those who have visited Ontario will understand. I lived there in the 70s, and one thing i miss that I can't get stateside, is pea meal bacon. So every couple years I cure some. A week in the wet brine. A couple days drying in cornmeal. Then sliced for the freezer. But first, breakfast.

    SS's Modernist Dinner Party

    SilverSage's Chicken and Dumplings

    I make about 1/3 of this for 2 of us, but we're not big eaters, and I don't like a lot of leftovers. This would feed about 6 people for the whole batch. I use all s/b chicken thighs, because it's easier than dealing with the bones later, although you might get more richness if you keep them...

    I just came across this, and was shocked! Like many, I just put stuff in the refrigerator drawers wherever it fit, and never really understood what should go in each drawer. Maybe someone else can use it too. High-Humidity Drawer The high-humidity drawer should contain the following...

    Who's in charge in your kitchen?

    CNN did a story and linked this blog this morning. The letter gave me a chuckle, so I thought I'd share it. Read it, then answer the question: What role do you play? A Thanksgiving Letter. Here's the original CNN article from which I stole the poll questions.

    Cilantro: Love it or loathe it?

    Ideas for picnic, please

    Well, it's not exactly a picnic, but that's the closest thing I could think of to describe it. We have a friend who moved to memory care unit in an assisted living facility last month. They have a pleasant little private dining room that family & friends can use if they want to have a...

    Pork Sausage

    I found the best pork sausage! We had it in a restaurant, and I asked them where they got it. Instead of the usual 16 links per pound (1 oz.), these are 8 links per pound (2 oz.). They are so big that they stay nice and juicy. They are made by Oscar Meyer, but packaged in bulk for...
