Farm Fresh and Local Produce 5/29/2010

I’m pretty good about getting up early on Saturdays – and am also pretty good about getting out of here early enough to get to the North Market before 8am – that is, unless P. is getting up and going with me. He’s the only person I know who can stretch out taking 2 pills […]

Grilled Pizza Al Fresco

The one thing that sustained me through winter was looking forward to the first warm day. To me, spring starts when I can grill out and eat outside comfortably. So even if it’s a single unseasonably warm day at the end of February, just the simple act of cooking and eating outside starts to chisel […]

Fresh Morels = Spring’s Welcome Mat

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I start going a little stir crazy at the beginning of March, when Mother Nature teases us with the fluctuations in weather. One day it’s perfect, where it’s warm enough to grill out and run around in shorts and sandals, and overnight I’m back to hoodies […]

Rotisserie Cornish Game Hen

Cooking with my outdoor kitchen has been an enlightening experience, to say the least. This time around, we made Cornish game hens on the rotisserie of the grill, and were quite pleased with the results. It’s quite simple to make, as long as you have the proper equipment. Sprinkle game hens liberally with Rostisserie seasoning, […]

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Recipe Remix is an food blogging event that asks you to take a typical dish, and then do an unusual variation of it somehow. The theme for this round is summer cookout foods like hot dogs, hamburgers, pizzas, potato salad, etc. Ever since I’ve discovered that you can make perfectly tasty pizza on a BBQ […]
