Crab Man B’s quest finds the Red Crab from Virginia

In my never-ending quest to try every edible type of crab (cooked fresh), I ran across one I hadn't seen before in the local Asian market - Red Crab from Virginia. Of course, I cooked it Maryland/Blue Crab style, which may or may not be the best for this type of crab... But, it seemed to work fine! Overall, it's a very tasty crab. The legs have the consistency and look of snow crab legs, but they taste like dungeness crab. The claws are bigger than snow crab but again taste similar to ...

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!
