Meatloaf isn’t the most complicated of recipes. It utilizes a tasty blend of aromatics and spices to augment the taste of whatever meat you make it with. For many cooks, however, meatloaf remains a bit of a mystery.
My parents are fond of telling me that they remember a time before ranch dressing. While ranch was invented in the early 1950s, it wasn’t popularized until the mid-1980’s. Ranch dressing used to be a much more involved affair, requiring you to mix a packet of spices and flavorings with your own mayonnaise and milk. Nowadays, of course, you can get it by the bottle in your local market.
There are many materials to choose from when you’re looking for new pots and pans. You’ll see wonderful options in anodized aluminum, titanium, and even ceramic. But when it comes to ultimate control of your cooking, copper is king.
Halloween is traditionally a time for treats. When you’re a kid, it’s fun to put on a costume and go around getting candy from all of the houses in the neighborhood. As an adult, however, it’s less acceptable to trick or treat. You’ll have to satisfy your sweet tooth a different way!
When it comes to grilling, it’s not just about the taste. Cooking up some burgers or hotdogs in your backyard with your buddies and a beer is a wonderful experience. You get to enjoy a nice evening outdoors with great company and pretty good food. You can apply the same logic to tailgating, barbecues in the park, and other outdoor eating extravaganzas. It’s not just about the taste.
I don’t hunt myself, but I’ve used more than my fair share of grinders over the years. When my friends and family members bag a deer, I’m always the first one to try to mooch a few pounds of venison to make delicious sausages and burgers. It takes a bit of effort to grind the meat and stuff the sausages, but the final product is more than worth it.
