Kamado Joe Salmon

The Kamado Joe gave this salmon the perfect touch of smoke. It’s actually amazing the flavor that hard wood charcoal imparts on everything it cooks. It’s a delicate smoky background that doesn’t overwhelm the foods we’re cooking.

Garden 2016 Update & Bourbon Sidecar

Now, I remember.

It’s easy to forget over a long winter. But, it’s all coming back to me now. If there’s one headache of a garden, it’s the watering system. Something is always breaking. Either we need to buy a new timer here… or a new timer there. […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Wandering around the back yard, I wanted to grab a few quick shots of my new peach blossoms. They were beautiful. Again. Every year the sight of these blossoms has made the effort of these peach trees worthwhile… even though we’ve only been able to enjoy a couple handfuls of […]

Steak & Ale Pie

Steak & Ale Pie

Since this was a test, I decided to go with ground beef instead of steak. Also, I’m using button mushrooms in this dish because I happened to have them on hand.

Top this with mashed potatoes and bread crumbs or pastry. Both […]
