Rack of Lamb

Here's a special romantic dinner for two. Of course you can buy two racks, double the recipe, and invite two others, but they better be special people. Or at least people you want to impress, like your boss or your parents. Most often you will find racks in a vacuum...

Hot Dogs

I don't care what anyone says, hot dogs are definitely not just for kids. Ballparks get rated for their dogs, and this morning there was a list of local golf courses, and in addition to all the other ratings, there was a rating of their hot dogs! Count me in as a hot...

Jalapeno Peanut Butter Boats

OK, it seems strange, but once you taste these appetizers, you'll believe. And they are always a big hit with our guests (well, maybe not all our guests). The photo shows home-grown and pickled jalapenos, but most of the time, most people, including me, use pickled...

FEATURED COOK BOOK

Pressure Oven Recipes from the Cooking Dude:
Prepare Delicious and Healthful Meals in Minutes

Chef Wolfgang Puck has invented a great kitchen appliance that will change the way you cook forever! Adding pressure to the oven cooks faster, while the food retains more moisture. Easy to install, and easy to use, the Cooking Dude loved it from the start. This book has lots of tips for using the oven, plus recipes for appetizers, main courses, side dishes, and desserts — some adapted from Cooking Dude’s famous recipes, like his World Famous Meat Loaf. Some meals take as little as a few minutes.

Chocolate Cashew Candy

Chocolate Cashew candy shown in the photo above. Made by Mrs. Cooking Dude, by the way… She buys the microwave milk chocolate, and while it’s melting, scatters batches of cashews (or other nuts) on waxed paper. Then she pours the chocolate over the nuts and lets the...

Pinto Beans in One Hour

I don’t know how many times, usually on a Sunday morning, when I had planned to fix a mess of beans and then realized that I had forgotten to put them in to soak the night before. So now they have to cook half the day instead of just a few hours. And now that the...

Peach Cobbler

By mid-May, our peach tree is overloaded with delicious peaches, in danger of breaking its branches if we don't eat peaches fast enough. We also give them away to visitors. In addition to just eating them for breakfast or a snack, Mary Ann makes a quick and easy peach...

Yorkshire Pudding

Yorkshire Pudding is the classic accompaniment to Prime Rib, as you probably know, especially in England. But you might never have eaten it, and might be surprised to learn that it is not pudding as we Yanks think of pudding. Over here, we call things like this...
