  • 13 cooking tips and tricks for making the juiciest, tastiest pork chops

    If you've ever tried (and failed) to cook the juiciest, best tasting pork chops, the first thing you need to do is give up any notions you might have about pork being "the other white meat," as it was marketed in the fat-phobic 1980s. "To me, a lean pork chop is the saddest possible thing," Samin Nosrat, cooking teacher and author of the James Beard Award-winning cookbook "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking," told TODAY Food. "The challenge of those tender cuts [like pork chops] is retaining that tenderness after you cook them," Nosrat explained. "In...

    We’ve had a lot of posts about the Instant Pot over the past few months, and many of us have marveled at how well it cooks meats; but you can do a lot more with it than that. Cheesecake is something that does well in the Instant Pot, and there are recipes all over the Web for various versions. Here is the recipe for Raspberry Cheesecake with an Oreo crumb crust, from the Instant Pot website - https://recipes.instantpot.com/recipe/raspberry-cheesecake/- and one of my favorite YouTubers, Dale Calder, shows the process in ‘real’ time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw9F5d7pBzMYou will need to find a 7-inch springform...

    The Courier ^ | Mar 2, 2018 | CHRISTY BRISSETTE
    A client recently asked me, “How often can I get away with eating junk food?” She knows that my nutrition philosophy is the “80:20 rule”: Eat healthy foods as often as possible (at least 80 percent of the time), but also enjoy the occasional less healthy food (less than 20 percent of the time), if that’s what you really want. I’ve seen this approach work well with clients who were previously chronic dieters yet hadn’t been able to lose weight. Once I give them permission to have “forbidden foods,” those foods lose their power and they’re able to make healthier...
  • VIDEO: Cooking Pollo Rojo on My New Weber Grill (BEST Barbecue Chicken in the World!!!)

    VIDEO I grilled and smoked Pollo Rojo on my new Weber Grill. Pollo Rojo is chicken leg quarters purchased from La Ranchera #2 in Broward County where they marinate in in their special secret mojo. I cooked this before on my propane grill but was curious as to how it would be if I grilled the chicken for 4 minutes on each side and then smoked it for 30 minutes using apple wood chips for flavor. This is Part 1 and you can see Part 2 of the finished Pollo Rojo at the link below. PART 2

    Besides fettuccine Alfredo, is there a dish reviled by pasta snobs as much as penne alla vodka? The other day, one of these detractors summed up the recipe for us as follows: Bring a large pot of water to a roiling boil, add salt, toss in penne, and cook until al dente. Meanwhile, in a small pot, heat up a can of cream-of-tomato soup. Drain pasta. Dump soup over pasta. Mangia! Although the pasta snob was just being extra snooty and probably secretly craves the stuff, he wasn’t so far off the mark. The problem with vodka sauce is the...

  • NATIONAL ROAST LEG OF LAMB DAY MAY 7

    05/07/2017 10:42:14 AM PDT · by heterosupremacist · 42 replies
    The leg of lamb is a mild and tender cut of meat that, when roasted, is a unique and tasty dish to many. A typical preparation involves covering the leg of lamb with butter, rosemary sprigs pushed inside incisions cut in the leg, and rosemary leaves sprinkled on top. The lamb is then roasted for two hours at 360 degrees and usually served with carrots, roasted potatoes, green vegetables and gravy.

    I first saw Pour Vida’s "Anaheim-style burger taco" in my Instagram feed. Despite sounding like something Taco Bell might have dreamed up, I couldn’t get it out of my head. I had to have it. Pour Vida is chef Jimmy Martinez’ gourmet taco stand in Anaheim. And the picture he posted on Instagram showed a handmade flour tortilla completely glazed with melted yellow cheese, which was then topped with a pan-fried clump of hamburger meat, a flurry of shredded lettuce, some more cheese, a slice of tomato and Thousand Island dressing. It was a work of art. So I went...

    By now, you’ve likely heard of juicing. But what about “souping”? Essentially, instead of downing green juice all day long, this cleanse involves sipping on soup. In my opinion, souping is a better option than stricter cleanses. That said, you certainly don’t need to limit your entire diet to liquid meals in order to take advantage of soup’s health and weight loss benefits. Here, why and how to incorporate some healthful soup into your diet. A study published in the journal Appetite found that when people ate a low-calorie soup (about 130 calories for women and 170 for men) before...

    (dpa) - There was once a Hereford cow that ate "100 per cent grass" in the green, green meadows of Ireland. Its demise was painless. Its meat was dry-aged for three weeks to give it lots of flavour. You can also check every detail of its history by using a smartphone to scan the QR codes affixed to its package at the newly opened Meat Market store, a top-tier meat emporium in Hamburg, Germany. And it's eye-poppingly expensive. "Lots of people have had enough with the mistreatment of livestock and scandals in the meat industry, like when horsemeat is passed...

There are things like flippers, snorkels, and masks; a buoy that you wear around your waist to alert incoming boats that you’re in the water; and...a trident gun? “What do you do with that?” I asked her. It was probably a stupid question, but was the gun even real? Was this some kind of staple for every Greek beach house, like the...
  • Restaurant Industry, Leading Indicator of US Economy Sours, Bankruptcies Pile up

    On October 3, Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp., which owns Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes, filed for bankruptcy. The company, owned by private-equity firm Sun Capital Partners, said it will close 20 to 30 of its 124 locations and put itself up for sale. On September 30, Restaurants Acquisitions, the operator of Black-eyed Pea and Dixie House restaurant chains, converted its Chapter 11 filing to Chapter 7 liquidation. The bankruptcy court order noted the company had shuttered its restaurants and management had resigned. On September 29, Cosi Inc., a fast-casual chain with 1,100 employees filed for bankruptcy.

    I'm really not much of a cook at all. I don't have the patience or the concentration. It's therefore no surprise that I would fall back on cooking eggs - fried, boiled, or poached. When I fry the eggs, I prefer to use bacon grease, but butter works just fine. So does olive oil if I'm in a healthy mood. I recently ran across a scrambled eggs recipe that used Worcestershire sauce: You Never Knew You Needed Scrambled Eggs With Worcestershire Sauce I tried it and I liked it. The link led me to a couple other links: This Is...

    Today I went to a Peruvian restaurant and had my absolute favorite soup of all time. Parihuela. You can see the soup I had in the pic below. It is composed of shrimp, clams, mussels, prawn, crab, calamari, octopus, and special chilis. The liquid is a reddish color. The bowl I had was very large and had enough seafood in it to make a complete meal.

    So far, almost one million people have watched a video of a man in a Tricorne hat demonstrating how colonists made fried chicken in the 18th century. The recipe, first published in Nathan Bailey's 1736 cookbook, "Dictionarium Domesticum," utilizes quartered chicken, malt vinegar and green onions as a three-hour marinade, flour and white wine as a frying batter, and — if you really want to go authentic — lard or clarified butter as frying oil. "The tartness of the marinade contrasted to the sweetness of the batter really sets this dish off," costumed video host Jonathan Townsend says in the...
