Want to cook steak without a grill? No problem!

Not everyone has a grill. Even if you have a grill, you may not have gas or charcoal on hand to cook your steaks. What do you do? Go out to eat? Broil the steak? Nope, use an indoor grill pan and have a perfect steak or burger at home for a fraction of the cost of a restaurant dinner. ...

Summer time means U-pick fruits in Brentwood, California

I think I missed the U-pick cherry season in Brentwood, California this year. So sad. I'll be heading out there this weekend and may find a farm or two that still has cherries, but they won't be Brooks or Bings. Next year, I'll be on the ball and will remember to pick cherries as well as remind all of you to plan your pickings. Even though cherries might be out of season, that doesn't mean there isn't anything to pick. Strawberries, apricots, nectarines, peaches and plums should still ...

Do you have a favorite AYCE (All you can eat) sushi restaurant?

I love sushi.  Yes, I really do love sushi.  Any time, any place.  I love great sushi and I have a confession: I'll eat almost any sushi that doesn't smell or look old. In general, I do not enjoy AYCE sushi restaurants.  I've found that most have one of five problems: too expensive, poor service (can't get the food to make it worthwhile), limited selection (only rolls), they don't have food for non-sushi eaters, or they are really poor quality (like at most buffets).

I finally found a GREAT AYCE sushi restaurant!

Great steak and sushi in the same place? Yes!

Being a sushi fanatic and being married to a steak fanatic, it is very tough finding a restaurant that serves both up to perfection. If you are ever in Reno, NV, stop by Oceana Restaurant at the Peppermill. It won't disappoint anyone.  It has the best ribeye and the best all you can eat sushi. My husband got the ribeye and my son got the New York strip.  Both agreed the ribeye was the choice cut here.  See Main Ditties for a review on the sushi .  As you can see, the steaks were ...

Ribs, fall off the bone or not?

Do you like your ribs to fall off the bone? Or do you like them firm and fully attached? Recently I attend a 5 hour BBQ class held by a local BBQ catering and restaurant  company, Big Ed Buzzards BBQ.  This was a great class and was very informative.  I had many takeaways from this class and you’ll see more from this class throughout the month of June as I reflect on the art of BBQ.  I took the class using a Groupon, went by myself and was not bored for a second.  Definitely a ...
