Acid is a pretty important topic that we very rarely talk about. As much as I like to add a little bit of lemon juice to everything, it doesn’t always go over well. While my dishes taste wonderful, my guests who are prone to acid reflux would very much prefer that I lower the pH of my cooking.
I”m a big lover of all foods fried. Whether we’re talking donuts, chicken, or tempura, I’m always down to partake of food that’s fresh from the frier. When it comes to leftovers, however, I’m much less interested. After even just a few minutes, fried food can lose its crunch and become a disgusting, soggy mess.
Backyard barbecues are a very special event. There’s something magical about getting together with friends and family and enjoying some delicious grilled food that’s prepared right in front of you. One of my favorite dishes is a well-made burger, with a delicious homemade patty and plenty of toppings and condiments.
I was shocked to discover that one of my friends thought she couldn’t make muffins without a muffin tray. While these special baking pans make creating muffins a whole lot easier, they’re not integral to your enjoyment of a small, round breakfast cakes.
Discovering Sous Vide
As a child, I used to dislike octopus. It tasted fine, of course, but the way it felt in my mouth was always too chewy. It was like eating an eraser. A cooked eraser, mind you, and one that was breaded and fried and dipped in some sort of sauce, but an eraser nonetheless. Not my favorite.
