Make your weeknight easy

If you're like me, when you get home from work the last thing you want to do is prepare a complicated meal.  Quick, easy, fresh.  That's always the goal.  How do you make your weeknight easy? I find that buying a value pack of meat and preparing it earlier in the week makes it easier for me on those rushed nights.  For example, a value pack of chicken could be broken up into three meals:  diced chicken for Fettuccini Alfredo,  sliced chicken for chicken with snow peas, and marinated chicken for BBQ chicken. ...

A trip to the Chinese Supermarket

I finally found a GREAT AYCE sushi restaurant!

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 ...
