Bring Out the Cheesy Stuff: It’s National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day

For a quick meal, there’s not much better than a hot, viscous grilled cheese sandwich. At least in my book. And today’s the day to celebrate that great American invention! (I’m claiming it for the home team because I can’t find references anywhere in Google to this morsel’s origination.) (Correction: Here’s a reference, and yes, […]

Charred Pineapple, Habañeros and Bourbon, a Great Jam Combo

This entry is part of a series, Pepper Jelly Chronicles»

Pepper Jelly Madness continues with an experiment that worked out very well, in my not so humble opinion…

A flavor combination that works at many levels involves pineapple that’s been grilled, paired with chile heat. When you add the smoky, vanilla-and-oak essence of a good […]

Lazy Sunday at the Ranch

When it’s this hot, we don’t get out and move around a lot. Oh, we grilled sausage for lunch (it was very good). I say “we” because it’s polite. However, it’s also a Royal “We.” I stayed inside and made sure the margarita machine ran on schedule. (It’s particularly tough duty, that; but we […]

Swordfish are big sea creatures, with males running up to 300 pounds and females up to four times that big. Trivia for the day: Swordfish are one of only a few cold-blooded creatures with a special ability to warm up part of their body! They […]

World’s Best Burger? Check It Out and See If You Agree (With Me)

A quick note concerning an article I read yesterday. It made me hungry to look at it! Then I got to thinking, is this really the World’s Best? Let’s see. Does it have great beef? (No wimpy ground meat allowed. And veggie patties? Fuhgeddaboudit!) How about bold seasonings? A daring choice in cheese? (Skip […]

Vegetables and Grilling Go Together Like, Like…

Okay, I get it. Most folks don’t think of vegetables when grilling. So imagine you’re a vegetarian… (In my case, a purely theoretical exercise; your mileage may vary.) See the problem? Most of the vegetarians and vegans I know (the “Type V” personality; time to come out of the garden!) like grilled vegetables, yet […]

How Grand is the Grand Buffet in Seguin? Let Me Tell You...

(Note: Before the flamers get a chance at this note, I want to remind everybody that this review is about a buffet place. It’s not fine dining, and even the owners don’t claim it as such. So temper your expectations, and try to read this review as a comparison to other buffet restaurants. Trust […]
