1Ugly Veg

'Ugly' vegetables: Tasty and Good for You
There are seemingly endless choices to be had in the produce section of the grocery store and at local farmer's markets and more and more often we see some pretty unlikely candidates for our dinner plates from the lesser known veggies, particularly the 'ugly' ones. Move over kale. Americans are expanding their veggie horizons. 2015 is the year of the warty, hunchbacked and spiny vegetable.

What's The Difference Between Yogurts?

What's the Difference Between Greek, Aussie, Icelandic, and Regular Yogurt?

Ever wonder what the differences are amoung the many choices of yogurts on the market? I don't necessarily mean the sweetened with fruits and syrup varieties but the major brands of plain yogurts that the likes of Fage and Chobani, Oikos and their competition. I recently read an article by Lee Breslouer that in very understandable language describes the similarities and the differences of each of these major brands have to offer.

Berry Vinaigrettes

1dressings

Berries, Vinaigrettes and More

Don’t you just love it when you find something so simple and is really tasty? Today I'm offering 3 very tasty and very easy recipes to try. Even if you've never really thought about making an infused vinegar before it's well worth the effort. And when a co-worker sent me an article about homemade drinking vinegars, I was intrigued. Since I had extra raspberries in the freezer, I thought “why not?” Just three ingredients and a little patience is all it takes to make this tangy, sweet vinegar which is the base for two recipes I’m sharing with you today, Raspberry Poppyseed Vinaigrette and Raspberry Shrub (a refreshing cool,non-alcoholic summer drink).

Raspberry-Pineapple Tea Brined Chicken

Raspberry-Pineapple Tea Brined and Grilled Chicken

You probably know that a good brine can keep meat flavorful and moist. But why exactly does brining work to make grilled or roasted meats so succulent and tender? And how about the classic sweet tea brine so popular in the Deep South. This seems to be especially popular for chicken—Southern-style fried chicken in particular and grilled chicken. But it’s a good brine for most meats....    It is the perfect way to infuse both moisture and flavor into lean cuts of meat, such as pork, poultry and fish. This traditional sweet beverage of the South is perfect for brining. Basically, all you have to do is add salt and pepper when done cooking.

Get Your Kitchen Tools From the Hardware Store

10 Kitchen Tools to Buy at The Hardware Store
Being a chef I am often times in a situation where I must think outside of the box. Sure, it may be something like how I'd present a deconstructed won ton or some such thing. Generally though, especially while catering I'll find that I've left home without some kind of tool or have to improvise on the spot. So, occasionally I'll have to think on my feet and find a unique solution quickly. So then it occurred to me recently that just because I'm a cooking geek that many of you may not have that twisted gene in you and what excites me at cooking equipment stores may not exactly resonate with everyone. At the same time so many kitchen tools/gadgets are actually available at your local hardware store. So today, let's explore some possibilities that may fit the bill- tools that are actually really good and useful at bargain prices. Don't look for food celebrity endorsements here, just useful stuff that we all need at prices we can all afford.

Celery: Health Benefits & Nutrition Facts
Celery is such a commonplace vegetable but a major culinary contributor to sauces, soups, stews, salads and snacks. But what, if any, goodness besides the crunch does it have to offer?
