Mac and Cheese, Smoky Four-Cheese Version

This is a different version of the original Mac & Cheese recipe on the Cooking Dude website. It is slightly more work, but, according to my taste testers, is well worth the extra effort! John McLemore’s Mac and Cheese recipe in his “Dadgum That’s Good” smoker recipe...

Shrimp Vera Cruz

Here's a delicious shrimp recipe that's fast and easy to make. Use medium to large shrimp, and to save time and trouble, you can usually buy them peeled, de-veined, and frozen. One bag of 15-20 shrimp is enough for four servings, unless there's a hog at the table....

Chicken Loco

This grilled chicken recipe came about as I was trying to come close to the flavor of Pollo Loco's grilled chicken. It's citrus-based, like theirs, but not quite the same. I have a hunch their recipe is simpler, but what the heck, this recipe turned out so good I may...

Barbequed Spare Ribs

Most people confuse barbequing and grilling. This page is going to cover both, so you will know the difference and can do either. Grilling is what we do over charcoal or gas, directly over the heat, like cooking hamburgers or steaks. Real barbequing is not done...

New York Steak (New York Strip)

As I have mentioned elsewhere, the New York steak is our favorite compromise of the best steaks. The filet is more tender but with less flavor, and rib eye steaks are more flavorful but with more waste. The New York cut wins by being second in every category. But we...

Lasagna

Lasagna is always a crowd-pleaser, and this recipe, from my sister-in-law Sherry, is about the best. Buy either dried lasagna noodles or the newer pre-cooked version. If you use dried, boil them according to the package directions and set them aside to assemble the...

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

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...
